Angry Exxon-Mobil in the Dallas Morning News again!

I was looking at the front page of today's Dallas Morning News earlier, but I just saw something in the article that jumped out at me and really made me mad again!!!!!

Exxon-Mobil posted $36.1 billion in profits for 2005. They made enough money that they could give all 256 million people in the United States $1000 each and still have money left over.

When I saw that, I thought to myself that they should be made to do just that. They cheated the American public with their artificially inflated costs and many of us can barely afford to pay our bills because everything has been jacked up so much.

yea....you actually think that all the gas prices raised b/c of the hurricans. Well they did effect them but oil companys took advantage of it and raised the prices more then needed, it was a perfect scam really, and if i was big buisness i probably would of did it too....but its pretty messed up for the rest of us.

Do you cry for the oil companies when there profit margines are extreemly low? (It does happen, it is cyclical). Didn't think so. This is a free market, capitalist society. This is how it works. Get over it.

that doesnt really surprise me, after all in the 3rd quarter i remember they reported a business record profit of 9.something billion in a quarter. it really sucks, well except for the executives who run the company.

sometimes i really think that vanace just comes on here to vent.

"and the stupid FU**ING tree hugging, gay loving, baby killing liberals"

and this comment is pretty stupid and not really needed. Thank god vanace didnt rule the world, b/c gays would be dead, b/c obviously they arent people, and the enviorment would go to the shits and the planet would probably look like Courisant from Star Wars

I really dont have a problem with the rest of your post but tha comment was just pathetic.
