OIl Profits

The latest for 2Q:
Shell profits up 40%
Exxon Mobile 36% @ $10.36 billion in revenue

Price of oil went up not because of production costs but rather based on news around the world and speculators driving it up. I guess the more drama one can spin the more profits can be laveraged. Outcome:
Joe Public ==> got screwed

By the way, it's all your fault. It's demand. It has nothing to do with the oil companies, remember? The president said so.

He's the Decider, so it's his decision to screw you. If you're not deemed to be sufficiently screwed, then Cheney will either shoot you, or KBR will just send a cost-plus bill for services rendered.

As bushie said (and is doing nothing,) we are addicted to oil. Big oil needs to be taken off the government tit so they can at least compete against each other as suppliers of a commodity.

I think we are not charging enough for oil at the pump as it is. Look how many dems, and lefties are still driving around. We need to find a break even price that we can play with where all of the poor and useless people will not be able to clog our roads.
I am happy that the oil companies are making record profits. This means that most republican that are traditionally wealthy and for the most part include energy stocks in their portfolios are now very happy and wealthier.

Here is how I see the future. We need to start drilling anywhere we want to. This will up up production and crude availibility. In the mean time we need to make sure that the Middle East is in a perpetual war so we can keep on inflating prices even with surplus at hand. Of course we need to store as much as we can back in underground structures or even convert the Grans Canyons into a mega srorgae facility. We must also slow down any progress related to alternative energy because that would encourage the greens to feel vendicated if there is a market for their shit or even if their shit works. The bottom line we must use oil as the ultimate tool to bring back the good all days of class gaps between the rich and the poor. Thsi middle class experiment is not working for our country. It's allowing too many people to think and have the audacity to speak up as if they take the Constitution seriously.

We need to restore America for the deserving only.

As extreme as your twisted views are put together I am afraid to say that you understand the formula but you are too much of an idiot to tone down the bullshit
