War for Oil

Make no mistake, the war for oil - isn't being fought in Iraq. It is here, on our shores. The demobrats think it is good for them to tout the profits made by oil companies and their plan to take those profits from those private companies. TAKE THOSE PROFITS. How very Gestapo of them. But Gott save you if you want to freeze taxes at the pump.

Oil companies make about .10 cents a gallon on gas sold at the pump. The Federal government makes about .18 cents a gallon and the states average about .24 cents per gallon and some even more. So, tell me, who should be forced to disgorge their profits? I'm thinking since the government makes even more per gallon of gas than those evil oil companies who posted hefty profits, the government should have to pay up.

When are we going to hold our government and our democratic Congress accountable? It isn't the evil oil companies - it is our own government.

Yep! Great post; everyone should be made aware of this. Instead of making the oil companies the bad guy we should look to our own government.

Of course, Florida has cut our taxes back so much that civil services are being shut down; I don't think they would give back any of that taxed oil money... ;)

according to the 'logic' behind windfall profits tax plans, we should tax every industry to bring all prices down.

Hope. Change. Free Stuff!
