Why the thanks? Because of this:
BP PLC, Europe’s second biggest oil producer, reported a 63 percent surge in first quarter net profit on Monday after crude oil prices soared to an all-time high and natural gas prices also rose.
Isn’t it nice to know your family is starving so the oil companies can get richer?
Isn’t it also nice to know that two of the presidential candidates answer to this isn’t taking on the oil companies, but rather cutting the gas tax?
Yeah that is such a pesky tax that pays for needless things like repairing roads and bridges. It also employees those useless construction workers. They don’t need those jobs, when Wal-Mart is hiring!
“A government by the people, for the people” – what a fantasy!
