Big Oil Playing Hide and Seek…

Opportunity egalitarianism is equality in economic and social opportunity. Corporate America simply won't play by the rules.

Editors write, despite sky-high prices, oil companies are evading royalty payments based upon a bureaucratic mistake in a 1995 federal law that does not offer specific wording on when royalties from leases must be paid. In the battle between taxpayers and major oil companies, taxpayers keep losing. "Energy corporations now reaping record profits should comply with the law rather than using their resources to fight against paying their royalties." Houma Courier, 04/04/2006

Big Oil can’t help it. It’s in their nature to cheat, steal and connive! Meanwhile working folks continue to do all the heavy lifting.
