    Those with so much empathy for the 'downtrodden' have been heating up their rhetoric on the oil companies, especially those thoughtful folks in the administration. Guess killing jobs in the Gulf wasn't enough, now they are going for families:

    Quite a leap to assuming that this was done just because it was the home of an oil exec, don't you think?

    I imagine that there's a lot of oil company execs in Houston.

    Have there been other such cases?

    And why THIS particular exec?

    Are they somebody special?

    I'd be interested to see whom is responsible for this. Remember back in May where SEIU went in front of a Bank Of America executive's home and staged a protest?

    Nothing would suprise me at this stage.

    I'll save it for the liberals and progressives. The rest vary by beliefs.

    Oh, the poor oil companies. Thank God nearly every Republican voted to give them more than 35 BILLION in subsidies. AND they managed to convince a few Democrats. Enough to given them the 61 votes needed. Oil companies are home to some of the greatest corporate Gods. The Republican "Trifecta", in the name of "God, Jesus and the CEO".

    NO MONEY TO THOSE LAZY UNEMPLOYED. Let them eat "oil".

    The clock is running.

    I know you are not going to get this because the right believes only what it wants to. It's called "selective reason".

    During the last election, the employees of the company I work at took up contributions and had fundraisers. The money was bundled together and sent to the Obama campaign under the name of the company we work at. Do you have that so far? Good.

    The company itself gave money to the McCain campaign. Do you see? The money from the employees went to Obama, the money directly from the company to McCain, but both campaigns list the company as "donors".

    The money Obama received from BP came from the engineers, the janitors, the secretaries, the truck drivers, the oil rig workers. I couldn't find anyplace that proves Obama got money from any BP Political Action Committee (PAC) or from the company itself. Do you have a link proving that? Not just a link showing he got money from BP, but exactly who it came from.

    And worse, Republicans recieved money from BP at about a rate of 10 to 1. Are you proud of that?

    Hurry now, the clock is ticking.
