  1. $1,000 energy rebate to consumers paid for by a windfall tax on big oil. Now that's the right thing to do, get some of that subsidy money back where it came from.
  2. Mvic


    And the ticker symbol on Mr Obama is what?
  3. I'm not sure if the OP's thread is satire or if he's just another dumb liberal but here's the under reported facts:

    "Oil giant Exxon Mobil Corp. on Thursday posted the largest annual profit by a U.S. company -- $39.5 billion -- even as earnings for the last quarter of 2006 declined 4 percent. The 2006 profit topped the previous record, also by Exxon Mobil, of $36.13 billion set in 2005." [Full story]

    While they were recording record profits last year, they were also writing checks to Uncle Sam to the tune of $100.7 billion -- two and a half times what they made in net profit. In fact, previous Tax Foundation research found that from 1977 to 2004, federal and state governments extracted $397 billion by taxing the profits of the largest oil companies and an additional $1.1 trillion in taxes at the pump. In today's dollars, that's $2.2 trillion.

  5. Anybody who supports Obama is an "I don't want to work for mine.. please take something away from 'somebody who worked for theirs'...and give it to me -- Socialist".

    You should be ashamed...
  6. Less work! More Pay!
  7. Better still... "NO work, more pay"...
  8. Regardless, if Obama's contract get's down in the 50's I'm a buyer. McCain is the new Bob Dole. Obama can only defeat himself at this point.
