Re: Govt Subsidies Oil Biz $2 Billion Year, This Undermines Renewable EnergyAug 18th, 2010
Ironic; you mentioned gas guzzlers and "pedal to the metal" - ole Jimmy was the first thing on my mind.
No, he got T-Boned at a desert stop sign. You can find him now at the Heartbreak Cafe and the Boulevard of Broken Dreams.
This is an interesting topic however. I have to read through these posts. I am with the OP and cannot see giving companies that post billions in profit subsidies. I am not saying we should tax them to death or punish them for being successful, but I can't see why they should get breaks either. But boy they have a big lobby and contribute quite a bit to campaigns so there it is.
