9. Whaddya mean "no expenses"?
Think of all those potential oil consumers that have died in Iraq defending ExxonMobil's obscene profits. They could have made even more money. They clearly need a tax cut or monstrous rebate to offset that lost revenue. How heartless do you have to be to consider dead soldiers over ExxonMobil's even greater profitability?

It's a crying shame, I tell you. Perhaps every American should be asked to contribute a little extra directly to ExxonMobil.
