I will never put another drop of gasoline, in any of my vehicles, from Pilot Oil until the Haslam family who owns Pilot Oil and the Governor’s Mansion says yes to Obamacare. How can this family who are rich, rich, rich; who make all of their money from under paid employees and millions of poor people who buy their gas call themselves Christians and deny millions of people health insurance? They have no shame!
STATE SENATOR, STACY CAMPFIELD, OF TENNESSEE SHOULD RESIGN FOR ALL HIS UNGODLY REMARKS ABOUT OBAMACARE AND THE HOLOCAUST; AND THE PEOPLE SHOULD BOYCOTT PILOT OIL COMPANY UNTIL THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR, BILL HASLAM, STOPS DENYING PEOPLE OF TENNESSEE HEALTH INSURANCE..
It was Pilot Oil, which is owned by the Haslam family, which put Bill Haslam in the Governor’s Mansion.
Pilot Oil was accused of gouging their customers out of $114,000,000.00 during The Hurricane Katrina Disaster; and Bill Haslam spent $14,000,000.00 of it putting his campaign signs on every street corner from Bristol, Tennessee to Memphis, Tennessee. Pilot Oil just recently was accused of being involved in a kick-back scandal by selling gasoline to some trucking corporations at special prices and not to others.
Tennessee used to be a decent place to live until the Republicans took control of the State Government with the big money of Pilot Oil, Koch Brothers, Grover Norquist, and their kind.
I can remember the days of Democrat Governors like Frank Clement and Ned McWherter; and Democrat Senators like Estes Kefauver, Al Gore Sr., Al Gore Jr., and Jim Sasser. Now we have a Governor bought by Pilot Oil Company and Senator Lamar Alexander whose chief of staff had to resign for being involved in child pornography (which got little coverage in the Knoxville News Sentinel); and Senator Bob Corker who interfered with the union election of automobile workers in Chattanooga with his lies.
The Knoxville News Sentinel which now monopolizes the daily news in Knoxville, Tennessee and almost all print advertising because the only competition it had was the Knoxville Journal which Senator Lamar Alexander supposedly got a nice fee for helping sell it for $18,000,000.00 which was trashed shortly thereafter giving the Knoxville News Sentinel the ability to charge higher prices for advertising and walk the Republican line. The name, Knoxville Journal is still used in Knoxville by a weekly newspaper with maybe 10 or 12 thousand in circulation. The Knoxville News Sentinel has bought up other minor publications and now has a monopoly.
Under the first amendment newspapers do not have to pay property taxes even though the Knoxville News Sentinel has $17,000,000.00 worth of property. They abridged the freedom of the press by monopolizing it.
The customers of Pilot Oil Company should thumb their noses at Pilot Oil Company; and should buy their gas on the other side of the street or just down the road until Governor, Bill Haslam stops denying some Tennesseans health insurance. It is so easy: no sit-ins, no marching, and no occupying anything; it doesn’t cost you anything to go just on the other side of the street or just down the road. WE THE PEOPLE REALLY DO HAVE THE POWER — ECONOMIC POWER.
