But the big bad oil companies are out to get us!!!
Remember people, if you have RRSPs 401ks or whatever retirement funds are called in your place of the world, chances are you are part owner of several "big bad companies"...
If you don't have retirement plans, why not?
I'm all for the pursuit of greater and greater efficiency of course, but I don't know how much I buy that big bad companies are hiding things from us. I sat having breakfast at a B&B a couple weeks ago and had to listen to one guy tell us how he has the cure for cancer/parkinsons/diabetes/arthritis all in one simple natural substance, but the drug companies won't let it out into the world! WTF... I just looked away and didn't say anything.
