New Blockbuster Movie

If the territorial waters off the Gulf of Mexico (and elsewhere) belong to the people of the U.S. Government (the people of the United States), why do natural resources (such as oil) that's pumped from the bottom of the ocean floor, belong to the companies that remove them? Shouldn't the companies that extracted it for us just be paid a finder's fee and compensated for their expenses? Doesn't the oil really belong to the people, as it really does the people in the Middle-East? Just as the gold in Fort Knox? Just as the water in the Great Lakes and Lake Mead? Just as the trees in our national parks? The Corportati already charges for the basic necessity of water; when will they start charging us for the air we breathe?
