Humm.... DH just called and told me about this-

Quote:
The world's largest publicly traded oil company said Thursday high oil and natural-gas prices helped its third-quarter profit surge almost 75 percent to $9.92 billion, the largest quarterly profit for a U.S. company ever, and it was the first to ring up more than $100 billion in quarterly sales.
Scamers...

Here is the full STORY

I don't believe that it had anything to do with the price of oil. This is America. Everyone knows that the way to get rich is to just work harder. So the people in this company just worked 75 percent harder this quarter than the last quarter.

AND they'll be getting record subsidies (paid for by our taxes) tied up with a pretty red bow for Christmas from the Republican Congress.


Meanwhile, no more money for freezing poor people. Haven't you heard - this is the age of pork-sional responsibility! Go buy your OWN oil company directorship (or senator, either works).

Chic-mom - you know they aren't freezing - they are just lazy - and prolly spending their aid on beer!!

Well, at least the US has some good news to report for the first time in a long time - somebody is doing well there!!
