"There are two distinct species of popularity; the one excited by merit, the other by resentment." -- Thomas Paine (1737-1809), Rights of Man I, 1791

Comment : The democrat candidates are again proposing a "windfall profits" tax on the supposed "excess and undeserved" profits of the oil companies.  The next time you hear them say that just remember that those profits go to (1) buying new crude supplies, (2) new exploration and drilling, (3) paying $27 in taxes for every $10 they make in profits, (4) day to day operating expenses, including wages, salaries and retirement benefits, (5) distributions to shareholders (including the majority that goes to investment and retirement funds).   Now just which of those do Hillary and Barack think should be cut?
