Letter: Oil companies celebrating

During a recent midnight hour, Republican legislators gave billions and billions and billions to the three largest oil companies. Why is Exxon suddenly so worthy?  Many believe the money will leave the state about as fast as the proud oil lobbyists off to collect the big bonus.

Conoco now has a legislative team of employees who vote as if they were the CEO. Our state Supreme Court has ruled that redistricting for 2012 was faulty. The United States Supreme Court recently gave corporations political personhood and they have used their new power well in this state. No wonder the owner state is dead.

Plug your ears when Parnell signs his bill, the sound of the cocktail glasses clanging in boardrooms from Texas, London and Dubai will be deafening.
