    Looks like I have a live one here

    libs constantly claim that even if voters don't pay income taxes they pay all sorts of other taxes

    understand the point

    and I sort of doubt you have much of anything going to these oil companies

    how many salaries is income tax paid on
    I see 15 billion paid in taxes

    Millions of americans pay nothing in income taxes-do you whine about them? and they are not creating jobs, paying salaries etc

And I'm happy to give it to them.

    Wrong all subsidies should be gone and let the free market work.

    a loyal con-I guess all those years I worked for PP sort of crushes that bit of nonsense.

    WE can start with the fact that I am a partner in an investment holding company that has a rather fair amount invested in energy. On top of degrees in Law and Industrial Labor relations.

    your turn

    And providing welfare for Big Oil is just a super idea because.................? Clue us up.
