What's the definition of a "windfall profit" ? Who decides the definition? Is Dark Knight making $400 million dollars a windfall profit? Should we drag "big Hollywood" before congress and demand to know how they can live with themselves by making such a profit?

windfall profit tax = wealth redistribution = liberal marxist agenda.

From each according to his ability to each according to his need.

You know that Nazism was a movement of the left, yes?

Please enlighten us on how Pres. Bush is like Hitler.

The leeches are the politicians sticking it to the man and REDISTRIBUTING (Jack Abramoff) it to their friends like Haliburton and Bobby Ferguson.

Great article based on facts......

http://www.csmonitor.com/2008/0807/p09s01-coop.html

"In the first quarter of 2008, Big Oil had a profit margin of 7.4 percent. Over that same period, the pharmaceutical and medicine industry earned a 25.9 percent profit, the chemical industry earned 15.7 percent and the electronic equipment industry earned 12.1 percent

Let's take a look at where each dollar spent at the pump goes. In the first quarter of 2008, the majority 70 cents was spent to purchase crude oil, 17 cents was spent on refining and retailing, and 13 cents on paying taxes. "



Any time you hear them talking about profit and not profit margin you know that it is not an honest conversation.
