    You got that right.

    Well - at least we know that the left and right are heard relatively even over time

    If it came all from one individual I suppose it would be baffling.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Two of the world’s biggest oil companies reported sharply higher third-quarter results on Thursday, fuelled by stronger crude prices and better refining margins.

    ExxonMobil, the largest oil company in the US by market capitalisation, beat analyst expectations by posting a 55 per cent jump in third-quarter earnings to $7.4bn, compared with the same quarter in 2009.
    How many drilling permits have you seen lately? Where's all that oil from the "War for Oil" we were suppose to get according to the left? I'm waiting.

    Two-Thirds of Federal Oil and Gas Drilling Permits Sat Idle in 2010
    By PHIL TAYLOR of Greenwire
    Published: January 13, 2011


    Oil and gas companies drilled fewer new wells on public lands in 2010 than in any other year over the past decade, leaving nearly two-thirds of their drilling permits unused, according to federal records obtained by Greenwire.
    More News From Greenwire


    The Bureau of Land Management issued 4,090 drilling permits in fiscal 2010, but oil and gas operators drilled 1,480 new wells, using about 36 percent of permits issued.


    How did oil company profits fare after we invaded Iraq? It's about oil profits not oil

    You know how much tax revenue the government stands to make from all that? How stupid would it be to shut it down?

    You're right, to an extent, but I think there was a stark improvement this go-round.
