What's wrong with oil companies? They employ Americans, pay a good wage, pay $10's of billions in taxes each year that our government squanders and they provide great products that you and I use and benefit from every day. We'd be a 3rd world country without the oil industry. No oil = No Jamba smoothies (including those styrofoam cups that last 100 years). Now cigarette companies, I agree with you.
The entire oil sector should be nationalized. They stifle the development of alternative energy sources (despite their BS advertisements to the contrary), they cut corners and cause disasters like the BP oil spill in the Gulf to increase profits, and they cause people's home faucets to become flamethrowers in the search for their product in the injection process. They are whores, unfortunately we are the johns who keep providing them their livelihood. Nationalize them and turn all their profits over to the people.
