    Default So what do we all think about the highest profit ever in American history

    http://www.shoutwire.com/comments/fu..._Oil_Swindlers

    Mr. Stewart sums it up pretty well imho.

    I can't believe they didn't even swear them in. Its like giving someone an order to lie. Anyway, thoughts?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    "Fuck you, ass. Just like me, you don't have an invite to their Orgy Mountain that was built from our hard-earned money."

    i lol'd hard. it's a coincidence, my coworker was just telling me this today - how the oil companies get the biggest tax breaks, whereas the grunts and peons of america suffer. i hope the next president will be able to fix this, though i'm not betting on it.

    it's alright, by some estimates we'll run out of oil in 15 years, then the oil companies will be screwed. but i guess by then, they'll have enough money to live 100 life times.

    This reminds me of all the times I've had to sit through capitalists' rhetoric denying that oil prices have anything to do with rate hikes and price gouging; that it's simply "Liberals not understanding how economies work! Didn't you take Economy 101 in high school? Supply and demand! Free Markets regulate themselves! If people didn't like it, they wouldn't be driving cars! You just want socialism to take over America!" Guess I should start walking 25 miles to college and the same back everyday to show my discontentment with our "luxury."

    As far as I'm concerned, it's the closest thing to proverbially raping the poor. They're getting paid more money than hundreds, if not thousands, of their average customers make in their entire lifetimes, all at once, just as a retirement settlement. The Man wins again.

    I've never understood why people need that much money, anyways. Yes, it'd be nice to get anything you wanted, but what's the point in having billions and billions of dollars that you are never going to spend? If these people are lacking consciences (and isn't it a fact that many people in these positions are psychopaths?), can't we just throw them in jail or - well, that's being emotional, but really. If just one of those people gave up a few billion of their dollars, we could all stop seeing those "feed the starving children" advertisements.

    Compensation for extremely small penises is my favorite response. It makes sense though, all those guys driving Porches and Hummers with like... 9 mpg, are supporting these guys and they both have common motives. Gotta make up for that pencil dick somehow...

    you can't throw them in jail because they *bought* the government. i really do hope that alternative fuel takes off, and soon. less dependence on oil can only mean good things - more competition for those ridiculous companies and less raping of our planet.

    You can if it's a dictatorship. I'm aware of that, though... it was just an emotional response. I mean, if we toss the same kinds of people in jail for committing other crimes...

    Steal: I was actually thinking of the n00b-postcount-epen0rz thing online when I was writing my post. I just think it's terrible that men have to resort to this kind of thing to compensate... especially because it won't make them any better in bed. (As a random, partially-serious comment - if penis enlargement surgery became common, would this be solved?)

    It has been decided. By DE's logic, this may be hard to take in, Hilary Clinton, assuredly, must have a penis.

    We need a liberal in power to take their money away.
