Tell me why, please

I absolutely need to know this. Why is it allowed that Exxon-Mobil can make a 10 BILLION dollar profit in one quarter, yup in 3 months, and we're paying gas prices that keep skyrocketing upward? Is there NO control whatsoever on corporate greed? And why isn't this company required to provide free heating oil and natural gas to all low income families that qualify? Why do the stockholders of this company deserve to reap such huge profits off the backs of the rest of us? And how can ANYONE be a stockholder and know that they're robbing America blind?

I don't know if this is 100% true, but apparently in Montreal and surrounding communities, heat is included in the price of rent BY LAW. They do this, 'cause otherwise, people could die in the winters there. Like I said, I don't know if it's true, but it seems like a good thing.

Both of my boys desperately want to move out (they're 20, so I see their point). I'm afraid they won't be able to afford it. I've talked to some of the college students where I work and living in an off campus apartment is quite the challenge these days. It's hard enough for me and I have a full time job!

I recently received a raise at work, but it doesn't matter. My expenses have increased above and beyond what my pay increase was. All I can do is hope someone takes action soon. But I'm not holding my breath.
