Our media protects thieving corporations by deflecting their thievery onto the government and politicians. Listen to this journalist.
Journalist should check who’s to blame before talking.
I will wager that the direction of the discourse likely steered most who listened to this segment. It effectively said that Americans are spoiled brats complaining about high gas prices while Ukrainians fight a just war. It is a thread that continues too often in all the dialogue on inflation and gas prices.
What was missing on the segment was an admonition of oil companies that continue to take advantage of Americans with inflated high prices for petroleum products. There is no shortage to justify the inflated prices, and I explained much of that in my previous piece titled “Why gasoline prices are a fraud on us all, and here is the solution that will re-empower us all.” I also covered the corporate-driven inflation fraud in the article “Expose them now! Put inflation blame where it really belongs before it is too late.” We need to stop these guys from playing us like a fiddle in cycles to rip us off on false pretenses.
When discussing a “Windfall-Profit-Tax” Andrea Mitchell‘s statement illustrates that we have voluntarily allowed oil companies to hold us as financial hostages.
“But the other thing is a Windfall-Profit_Tax,” Andrea Mitchell said. “And that’s what, you know, Senators and other House Members are really looking at. But that would get producers to produce less. So there’s no really quick.”
Actually, there is a fix. If a corporation purposefully harms the American people for vital resources, they should nationalize them. America has stated before that oil is in its national interest and would go to war in other countries for it. Maybe it is time that America goes to war with our corporate terrorists.
But David Ignatius eats the cake as he blames Americans for their complaints about gasoline prices.
“I just have to say about gas prices,” David Ignatius said. “I know that this is a big political issue, but there’s a sense of disproportion. Here’s the center of Europe in flames. And the big issue in America is our gas price going to go up by another $0.50. You know, people want to just, you know, part of being a superpower, sucking it up.”
Really? David? Just continue to allow the oil companies to rip us off.
