Is this an April Fools joke?
I know this is a scrap booking blog but I am getting so pissed off about the economy that I just can't help myself. The profits for the oil companies rang in at a cool 123 Billion dollars in 2007 with a lofty $18 billion in tax breaks. That's PROFIT! Everyone is starving while the fat cats are sitting on their money bags. Texas Gold. We are arguably in a recession and big oil is amassing record profits. Congress met today to discuss changing the tax breaks to big oil and guess what Bush said about it? If it passes he will veto it! If that just doesn't tell it all I don't know what does. Bush and his Texas oil boys are so blatant. How about so disgusting. This makes me irate. Is there anyone out there as pissed off as I am about this. How is this not a conflict of interest. How does he get away with it? More importantly why do we let him? Big oil says the prices are beyond their control blaming crude oil and OPEC for the high prices. I say how about them profits boys. How do you explain that?
