Bible Quotes Won't Help Haslam In Pilot Oil Mess

Sunday, June 2, 2013

Strange that supporters of the Haslam family find quotes from the Bible to justify the actions of the management team running Pilot Oil. But, those old biblical boys aren't here to talk away the evil actions by their employees. 

The investigation surrounds cheating by Pilot Oil's personnel and the Haslams benefited from it . So far the Pilot Oil Company cheated only small truckers and not the big boys . Now the billionaire must explain that he did not or that he knew nothing about the illegal transactions going on within his company. 

Haslam controls Pilot Oil 100 percent and he is not stupid but a shrewd businessman. How shrewd Haslam is will probably be revealed in a courtroom and the Bible quotes will do little to help him, but good lawyers will.
