    Dems propose 'Reasonable Profits Board' to regulate oil company profits - The Hill's Floor Action

    Oh -- but they -arent- socialists. Thank God this is DOA.

    Who ever thought that the US would reach the point where the government could decide how much profit you should make and take from you any profit beyond that point?

    This was posted yesterday.. and some good points were made. A. the oil companies will reach the limit of profit to be made in the Marxist USA and then they will take the rest of their oil and sell it to China and then the demoncraps can pull their thumbs out of their asses and hitchhike. Now there's a plan stan. :lol:

    How about the citizens of the United States organize a "reasonable profits board" so we can uncover, review, and expose the "under-the-table" profits, sweetheart deals, lobbyist "perks", and other flim-flam, extortion, and embezzling that the POLITICIANS engage in on an hourly basis, at ALL levels of government?

    "reasonable profit" "fair share" "wealth inequality" "more fair"

    We've jumped the shark, folks.

    All of these terms translate to 'whatever liberals think wealthy people should be allowed to have".

    it appears that is what the masses are starting to demand though. So we'll have a command economy in its most damning form adn all eat the shit sandwich the planners serve up. When will we wake up? Never. Unless by "waking up" one does so as a serf to work the land they once owned.....
