"In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying."--Bertrand Russell

Oil Execs Get Tax Cuts - Theirs and Yours
The fact that a Petroleum based White House is running up trillions on the credit card shouldn't suprise us. The fact that they cut taxes on millionaires, a few of whom are in the oil business, AND helped raise energy prices through higher demand for war, the strategic reserve (yes, they've been filling those salt caverns lately, paying record prices with our tax dollars), and various other policies that have contributed to making us less safe (like attacking a country that had nothing to do with 9-11, because it was in violation of less UN Resolutions than Israel). So, their buddies in the energy bidness get richer on tax cuts, and even richer sucking up our tax cuts. Big suprise.
