Comments: Is it bad to make money?

Instead of fucking with the oil companies the assholes should fix the goddamn problems THEY created by making it easier to build new refineries and nuke plants. Gas and electricty prices would go down. End of story.

You've been deluded. Yes, it IS bad to work hard and earn. If you do, you shall be punished.

America is socialist, I've finally realized it. Capitalism is dead. It's very sad, but true.

I'm so sick of hearing about forced helping of the "poor". Oil companies are in business to make money. Oil is their business. They make money on that business, profits are the bonus, you know, the big banana! I think I'll go run my tank out today so I can donate to the coffers of big oil :)

Grau... okay, but if the do that and the oil companies decide to leave the prices where there at, it's fine by me. They are out to make money, not friends.

Ogre: How many times have I told you to lay off psycotropic drugs? You've finally let those NC whackjobs brainwash you.

Oddy: I'd wait till this is over to do that. You might just be increasing their fine.

Heh - heard a guy on the radio today talking about "those criminals who run the oil companies"... ARG!!! Immediately turned the channel. I know he's a flaming liberal - but if you're going to make statements like that - you better be able to back it up with laws!!! The problem with the left is that they are so tremendously uneducated... especially when it comes to business. Apparently businesses are there to just "give" us things...

The prices will go down not because they have too, but because if we have a larger refining capacity, and the gas ends up cheaper to produce because of it, the oil companies will try and underbid their competition thereby causing all of the prices to drop. Free market in action.

The goddamn government at the state and fed levels make a shitload more money off of each gallon of gas in taxes than the oil companies do from sales, and they didn't have to lift a fucking finger except to sign a bill making it so.
