Wall Street has been making money out of thin air for the last 15-20 years, how do you think we got into this mess in the first place?

that is exactly what the media has been doing when it comes to how much the oil companies profit is. lets not tell the sheep that most other companies make more profit than the oil companies.

when I see the profits that big oil is reaping these days, there is no doubt that it is a "windfall" & needs to be taxed as such.


this is where it gets realy scary. when will the taxing end? is the goverment gonna then come tell every company and individual that they are only allowed to make a certain amount of money? am i screwing myself by contributing to my 401k and ira because when i retire ill then have too much money and then i will be taxed as a "windfall"?

lets tax all companies till they decide to leave the country and take thier jobs with them. then where will that leave us?
if you add "windfall" tax to oil companies what will happen to the price of the products they sell? the price will go up. companies dont pay tax, consumers do.

No...What's really scary is a government that screams "Socialism" when it comes to helping out the little guy but can't wait to bail out their corporate buddies.....with my money!

I'm so tired of of the damned scare tactics!!...They won't work any more!! The jobs have already left the country, most Americans cant afford to drive their cars or heat their homes now & you guys don't scare me anymore!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

(I hope they do leave the country (or goto prison) & take their puppet President, Senators & Congressmen with them!)

I have the solution.......Nationalize the oil industry like our (suddenly) Socialist government is Nationalizing Wall Street. ;)
