Venezuela Warms America’s Poor

In spite of record profits by Shell, BP, Exxon, Chevron and Mobil–it is Citgo of Venezuela that donates heating oil to Americans in need of warmth.

“Every year, we hear from families who struggle each and every day to put food on the table and heat their homes,” said Joseph P. Kennedy II, President of Citizens Energy Corporation. “We are deeply grateful to CITGO and the people of Venezuela for their generosity to those who need help keeping their families warm. Every year, we ask major oil companies and oil-producing nations to help our senior citizens and the poor make it through winter, and only one company, CITGO, and one country, Venezuela, has responded to our appeals.”

A little “hope” for Lynn–and the rest of us politically jaded Americans.

    Which once again leads us to the question if things in our country are so bad why are the multinational companies still raking in the profits. You have to stop believing it is anything more than greed. Pure unadulterated greed.

    A company is actually helping the people?

    At a time when the US Government is boasting about its 60 billion dollar budget cut to the American people…one can only be dumbfounded. ;-(

      When is it going to boast about cutting the WAR budget entirely? Now that would dumbfound me.

    My ex husband was from Venezuela, and as the US news was reporting about how the evil meglomaniac Hugo Chavez was throwing Exxon and Mobil out of his country screaming how dare he….he was taking over those operations and using the money to help build the infrastructure of the country. Chavez is not an easy person to love, but when you see a corrugated tin house more or less next to a million dollar yacht you find yourself asking how is it that people can be so self centered, to not recognize the error of that dichotomy.

    Citgo I believe also offered lower prices in the poorest regions of the country during the last spike in oil prices.

      Meglomaniac–what a great word, Meg!!! Now we’re learning who the real meglomaniacs are right here in the USA. Don’t have to “love” the man–but we ought to respect his values.
