You want some cheese with that whine?

I am sitting at my computer drinking merlot, contemplating the future. My utility bill is a whopping $400.00. Before you choke on whatever you're drinking reading this, know that only $80 of it is actually fuel consumption. The rest is all surcharge. I am thinking of Texas and selling my house. I am thinking for the first time seriously of leaving home. I have the Houston school district on my other tab, and I'm debating whether or not to turn in an application. I have Target on another tab. I think I'd be really good at putting all the clothes people try on back on the racks. I could get an employee discount on the $1 aisle. Maybe we can take Billy Bob with us. I'm tired. I'm a little blue. It's getting really hot out. You know anyone who wants a house and property in Papago?

the people have been and are continually manipulated by a well funded machine starting with garment factories(and other supporting enterprises) poker machines (to help wash black markets funds) going into media/communications (to help influence public opiinion)expanding to hotels (because tourism is the next big thing)
and now looking to enter the utilities/energy business.
and those are just the big ones...

If those are just the big ones, those are enough!

Yeah, the insane thing is that I am hearing more and more residents with utility bills in the $400+ range. Wow!
