Stimulus isn`t the end all....New laws to protect the whole from the few money whores will be needed for a long term healthy economy. The cycle will only end if we make money whoreing a crime. The actions of these people must be identified ,and they need to be closely watched and regulated if the know no limits to their excesses.


    Oh my, this truly was an amusing trite little rant. Do you feel better now?

    Who is this "we" you refer to? Is it the millions of uninformed Americans like you who are economically clueless and love to go on inane populist rants that cannot be supported by reality or facts?

    What a fascinating, yet ignorant, argument. Oil Companies make about ten cents on every gallon of gas they sell.

    How much do you think the Federal Government takes for doing absolutely nothing?

    How much do you think State Governments take for doing absolutely nothing?

    How much do you think local Governments take for doing absolutely nothing?

    Do you ever actually think before you go on your populist rants?

    Boo-hoo! ExxonMobil made a profit. WTF is a corporation supposed to do? Oh, I know...make a profit up to the point that such profit offends the delicate sensibilities of individuals whose envy causes them to be distressed by the success of others.

    What is the hard-on for Big Oil? They develop and exploit a commodity that our massively successful economy requires. What? Because of that need then oil firms should suspend making the very profits that allow them to invest in new exploration, new capital projects, new employees, etc.

    That makes as much sense as arguing that Obama was ever a candidate of hope and change.

    Your desperate rhetoric is pure unadulterated emotional babble void of reality and facts.

    So you think that these people are out on the streets because Exxon made a profit? What a fascinatingly dumb argument.

    But of course, it is equally ironic watching Liberals who apparently are angered that a company would actually make huge profits, which is a GOOD thing in that they employ thousands and will pay HUGE taxes, also rail about how bad the unemployment figures in the country are and want more jobs.

    Yep, in order to have a Liberal philosophy, you have to willingly avoid reality and wallow in denial.
    In any other thread on taxes the average conservative is blind with rage about, "the guy with all the money being taxed". BTW I still don`t care about the price of ethanol in EUrope. While 10s of millions of people went broke,lost their jobs,lost their home,your buddies at BIG OIL were money whoreing. Not just makeing a profit...the truth is getting out there,...I don`t know what your gonna do now,for an explaination or excuse. Keep whineing is my guess.

    And you think they put themselves on the street by buying a home. You don`t think the 10,...20,...30% price inflation on food and energy played any part. You are an emotional self indulgent money whore. Its the only thing that explains your front of ignorance.

    I don't recall making this argument; where did you pull this one out of?

    We haven't had 10....20.....or 30% inflation. Do you just make up your own set of false facts to support your inane conclusions and willful denial?

    No, you would be typically wrong, I am a rational person with intelligence trying to make sense of all your incoherent rants.

    But alas, it is obvious based on the above there is no senses here; by all means, carry on.
