    These conspiracy theorists need to get a life. Go out with a girl or something, do something useful.

    I beleive in a few things and the first is a fact....

    1.Oil companies are buying up their own stock with their rediculous profits. Much, much more than they do looking for wells to use or refineries to build.

    2. We need to start to develop our 250-300 year supply of oil shale and tar sands. if we did this, it would create

    thousands of jobs for U.S. citizens, expand our engineering capabilities, and keep the wealth in the U.S. instead of sending it overseas.

    3. We need to stop over regulating every segment of our

    economy and thus delaying, by decades, the development of

    alternate fuel technologies.

    4. We limit drilling off our coasts, in

    Alaska, and anywhere there is an insect, bird, fish, or

    plant that might be inconvenienced. Better that our people

    suffer. Our lobbying efforts have been too effective. We need limits on lobbyists for big companies on how much they control our polititians.

    5. Corn based Ethanol !? Thank our government for this sham

    program! It will destroy us from the inside with these types of policies. This is worse than when we pay our farmers NOT TO GROW FOOD. Have them use more energy to create less energy, and simultaneously drive up food prices. Thank you U.S. Congress!

    6. Last but not least we need to stop letting certain OPEC countries fleece us without end. They have been

    accumulating shares in our banks, real estate, and

    publicly held companies. They also finance a good portion of

    our debt and now manipulate our markets, currency, and

    economies for their benefit.

    So what oil company theories are you relating to. Conspiracy is not a conspiracy when its an open fact. You can very well bet the farm that the oil companies are lobbying along side the tree huggers. They don't want less profits.

    Now who would believe ridiculous and unfounded theories? The oil conspiracy theories are neither ridiculous nor unfounded.

    Which ones? The Enron Loophole? Sorry, but that's anything BUT unfounded! If that were closed, the futures markets would largely collapse.

    ANY time a small group can corner a market on a commodity item such as oil (or wheat, or pork bellies, or whatever) you are headed for disaster if you're a buyer at the bottom of the supply chain.

    Well, I believe the annual profits of American oil companies, and when they have shot up to record high numbers since this war of lies in Iraq, began I'd say those conspiracy theories are at least a little bit founded.
