Exxon Mobil 1Q profit up 17 pct, Wall Street expected more
By JOHN PORRETTO, AP Business Writer
HOUSTON - Exxon Mobil Corp., the world's largest publicly traded oil company, said Thursday record crude prices helped its net income grow 17 percent in the first quarter, but the results came in below Wall Street forecasts.
We can all sleep soundly in our beds tonight knowing that the profits of the oil companies are continually rising to new record highs! Bravo Exxon-Mobil. Fuck all those poor bastard that can't afford to drive to work or heat their homes or afford oh so many things that are dependent upon the price of oil. Let 'em use solar power. . . or eat cake. . . or something.
How bad will it have to get for the average American before they rebel?
MoronMonkeyBoy Bush the Chimp's corporate royalist masters must be beside themselves with joy today. I'll bet they have a big black tie affair just to celebrate. Will you be invited? How many of you proles would like to watch? Wouldn't it be great standing there watching America's royalty shove their arrogance and disinterest in your lives down your throat while you have your hardon in hand wanking away as they walk by spewing more and more indignation upon your sorry asses? Bend over, I'll bet one or two of them would oblige you.
How long. . . .
