    It's like pulling all of the raw, unprocessed data from Walmart's servers and saying that Walmart is doing well because kids like blue toys. Huh? Conservative is good for a few laughs. And that's about it.

    Judge Martin Feldman in Gulf Oil Spill Case Sells Oil Company Stocks


    After his ruling, it emerged that Feldman, who was appointed to the bench by President Ronald Reagan, has owned stock in several oil and energy companies. His latest financial disclosure report, covering investments in 2009, shows he owned eight energy-related investments, including stock in Exxon Mobil. A previous report covering 2008 shows he owned up to 16 such investments.

    But a note attached to the 2009 report, which was disclosed Friday, says Feldman sold his Exxon Mobil stock earlier this month while working on the oil spill case. Details were reported by several news agencies.

    An Exxon Mobil spokeswoman, Cynthia Bergman White, confirmed that the company was one of those hurt by the Obama administration's moratorium, telling the Wall Street Journal that Exxon used a rig whose operations were suspended under the ban.

    Feldman told the newspaper he only learned of his Exxon holdings on Monday, the day before his ruling, and sold them right away.

    Among the other assets Feldman sold were shares in Transocean Ltd, the Switzerland-based company that owns the Deepwater Horizon rig, which BP was leasing at the time of the April explosion.

    In 2009, Feldman's stock in Exxon Mobile was valued at $15,000 or less and generated income for him of less than $1,000, his financial disclosure showed. Another of his investments, in Ocean Energy, is categorized as having a value between $15,001 and $50,000, yielding interest of between $1,001 and $2,500. His other holdings are in companies such as Provident Energy Trust, El Paso Corp., Energy Transfer Equity, Basic Energy Services, Valero Energy Corp. and Crosstex Energy LP.

    Well I think what your missing there is Blackrock stock he owns... they are the largest stock holders in BP.. but it is disgusting and goes on much more then the exxon stock. This judge should not be allowed to make a ruling on the moratorium and an appeal is being put through. Again the suspension only affects ~30 rigs in the gulf.

    That kind of chicanery put Ken Lay and Bernie Madoff in prison, but fools applaud congress when they do the same thing with the fool's money.

    Since not one budget was passed that was truly balanced, it's easy to see that the US Congress is not "conservative", not yet.
    The Conservative Legislature of 94. Gingrich... The one that gutted welfare and other entitlement programs.

    If you're arguing that the Budget wasn't balanced, you're preachin' to the chior here. You'll note that I framed my response by describing it as the closest TO being balanced since IKE.

    Let us all know when you give up your oil products and start riding a bike, oh, wait bike tires come from petroleum products as well. I am sure you are doing your part to reduce our dependency on oil.

    Re: Obama says GOP making life harder for the jobless

    You do realize that Obama is in the WH now? What does Clinton, Bush, Reagan or any other President have to do with the problems we have today? These are Obama's problems not any other President and Obama has a Democrat Congress. If you truly care about the deficit and debt then I am sure you are concerned about what Obama and the Democrat controlled Congress are doing

    Poor poor oil companies... only the most profitable companies on the planet. Finally the republican party is showing its devotions .. big oil, unregulated banking, privatised healthcare.. .. on and on. You must be so proud of yourself championing big money. America's economic recovery should include manufactured green technology, bio tech, nano tech, information technology.... exports. Not low paying low quality service industry jobs selling food.

    Re: Obama says GOP making life harder for the jobless

    I am sure you will find great success with your hatred for free enterprise and capitalistic corporations. Good luck with that.

    Based upon what I have seen from you, you actually need Barack Obama as apparently you are another victim. Don't really blame you because your lack of business knowledge, understanding of basic economics, how to compete in society, and even a basic understanding of an income statement and balance sheet make you exactly the kind of person Obama needs. Anyone that calls Oil companies the most profitable companies on the planet doesn't understand finances at all. Big money and so called big profits ignore big investments and high costs of drillling and doing business. You definitely need an extension of unemployment benefits.

    I don't have a problem with big companies or any company for that matter. You really need to grow up.

    edit:YouTube - MSNBC's Rachel Maddow: Judge Martin Feldman strikes down drilling moratorium, favors his portfolio
    So then gay judges must not rule on gay issues? Then if a judge has a 401k he has oil stock so can not rule on an oil spill? Nice try but it does not wash and he was right.

    If we are going to shut down oil wells then we need to stop people from driving cars because it causes death every day.

    Re: Obama says GOP making life harder for the jobless

    I would have thought that the issue is a discussion of the Constitutionality of the fascist moratorium imposed by our incompetent Community Organizer, since all discussions of any financial conflict of interest on the part of the judge are moot, given that his ruling was indeed the correct one.

    This is clearly a case of the Left Having Nothing Left to Debate With, So They're Hauling Out the Cannons of Personal Destruction.

    Nothing new there, not at all.
