Take on the Big Dogs at the Top
In the last few days Texans were greeted with the news that the oil companies raked in staggering profits in the third quarter of 2005 at the same time that working people couldn't afford to drive to work in the face of $3 a gallon gasoline. Exxon-Mobil for example took in 10 billion dollars profit, an increase of 75 percent over its already obscene profit level of the second quarter. But Attorney General Greg Abbott's strongest response has been to file a few complaints for public relations purposes against small business owners who are struggling just as hard to make it against Big Money Power as everyone else.
When is somebody in Texas government going to take a stand against Big Oil on behalf of the people of Texas? When is the governmental official with the biggest tools, the Texas Attorney General, going to do something about the Big Dogs' collusive pricing tactics on Texas soil? When is the Texas Attorney General's arm going to be raised on the people's behalf instead of sitting still for Big Oil's and the Federal Government's spin-doctors?
Texans don't need a public relations firm for an Attorney General. The people of Texas are entitled to a real Attorney General who understands that his Constitutional duty is to serve the people as a fighting lawyer who'll take on the Big Dogs at the top. That's what being the people's lawyer is all about, and I'm ready to serve.
