Prohibitions On Market Manipulation and False Information in Subtitle B of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007

After reading the article on Saturday, May 3, 2008 of FTC asking for public comment on oil activities" in our local paper The Wichita Eagle I thought very seriously what comment I would have. I decided that my comment would compare the intended role of the U.S. Government et. al. to that of the role of a parent and the citizens of the U.S. who voted in the leaders of our Government to that of children - all aged children. The purpose of a parent is to help encourge, promote and inform the child of how to be better and achieve the right versus the wrongs of the world. However, I find that in all levels of our Government that the children are being deceived and lied to - for whatever reasons. Hiding potential mistakes that they have done, making decissions that harmfully effect the child and allowing the children to take the brunt of the outcomes, i.e. the large oil base in Alaska which have been held secret from the masses since the 70's. The ecomonmy has had it's ups and downs for many years but we have come to a very dramatic downturn that effects old and yound alike. If a real parent were to have done to their "children" what our government is doing to it's citizens, the real parent would be charged with CHILD ABUSE and found guilty for starving, manipulation, brain washing, abusive treatment, and many more charges. I find that our Government has become way too friendly with the private business world. That too many of those who the citizens as a whole have elected to take care of the citizens interests have only taken care of those with big pockets, big mouths, and whatever is in it for them. Please help to reverse our dependence on other countries and help this country get back on it's feet. see the following website: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3340274697167011147&hl=en
