Exxon Mobil record profit

The stock market in going down the tubes, people’s houses are getting foreclosed on, millions of Americans don’t have health insurance, payroll is declining, global warming threatens the planet, and gas is $3.20+

YET…. the oil company is reporting record profits: Exxon Mobil Corp. on Friday posted the largest annual profit by a U.S. company.

I am not saying that making a profit is a bad thing. In fact, I am happy for them, that they made money. But… record profits?? It’s like kicking someone in the nuts while they are down…

I understand that there may be several factors contributing to this number, and I have no evidence that there is any wrong doing here, but come on… there has to be some kind of balance in this world…

The Bush administration tells us its because of terrorists and illegal immigrants.

Sigh… I don’t know why CNBC keeps showing live coverages of Bush making speeches. I literally TURN OFF my TV when they do that. I cannot stand listening to that guy.

    They are making about 10% on their revenue. Respectable, certainly, but not mind blowing.

    the gas companies are having the time of their lifes. yet nobody is happy yet. are they trying to become more powerful than the government now? what do they do with all their money? or is this gouging the only way the terrorists can get to us? i wish they would just come on over and find out how well rednecks can shoot.
