Why isn't Apple hauled before Congress for a public flogging the way other corporate giants - especially oil companies

This is just my view from my position in life.

Apple makes their money selling luxuries. As a matter of fact I don't own one Apple product. So how much they make or what they charge for their products has no bearing on my life.

Now the oil companies on the other hand have a huge impact on my every day life. with out gas and oil I am literally dead in the water. And when gas was running 3.70 plus it take a large chunk of profit out of my pocket. ( I have to fill my 30 gallon tank at lest 2 to 3 times a week) so when the oil companies are making record profits while the high price of gas was breaking the backs of the middle class of course there was a great deal of annomisity toward the oil compaines.

You pretty much can't buy anything that does not use some kind of exploitive something or other.

If they are not exploiting their workers, they are raping the environment for raw materials. If they are not raping the environment, they are releasing toxic stuff that will give us all cancer.

That's the best Robert impression I can give...

If only all corporations were as inventive and productive - for everybody.

Apple Inc. posted the largest corporate profit in history in Q414 - just over $18 billion. The previous record was held by Exxon in 2012.

The company is now worth $650 billion and holds $142 BILLION in cash reserves.

People here don't know what to make of this. They are clearly a corporate behemoth and make gobs of money which most people could never conceive of. They should hate them. Yet the very same people who should despise Apple also gobble up their products readily because they love them so.

How do they reconcile this? Why isn't Apple hauled before Congress for a public flogging the way other corporate giants - especially oil companies - are? Why isn't everyone talking "windfall profits tax"?

Come to think of it, most people think "windfall profits" means "really big profits". So I guess I shouldn't expect much from anyone.
