Things That Make You Go Hmmm — August 10, 2008 at 7:54 pm

Mo’ Money Fo’ Big Oil


More drilling in the USA!!! More drilling in the USA!!! More drilling in the USA!!! We need to drill MORE MORE MORE MORE!!! Why?

So the major oil companies can export more to other countries and make Mo’ Money! Mo’ Money! Mo’ Money!!! Yeah!

A record 1.6 million barrels a day in U.S. refined petroleum products were exported during the first four months of this year, up 33 percent from 1.2 million barrels a day over the same period in 2007. Shipments this February topped 1.8 million barrels a day for the first time during any month, according to final numbers from the Energy Department.

You get that? They drill it HERE and then send it over THERE where they can make a ton of money. See how that works?

So, drilling more oil in the USA (offshore, in wilderness areas, wherever you want) isn’t so that we can lessen our dependence on foreign oil. Oh no. It’s so the Big Oil companies can make Mo’ Money! Mo’ Money! Mo’ Money! Yeah!

Did I happen to mention that Exxon set yet another record for quarterly profits for any company ever anywhere in the whole wide world last quarter?

Also that John McCain wants to give them tax breaks and subsidies? What a great idea! That will surely incentivize them to develop more alternative energy sources.



Is this thing even on?

*tap, tap*

I’m just sayin’…
