    Yep! I caught him with his "argumentative pants" down as he was making totally ignorant statements just for the sake of arguing..... and when I pointed this out to him in post #44 he ignored the fact that I busted his candy ass and he continues to strir up shit "just for the stink of it". Sure does look like the worthless "Ass Clown" RAM has returned.

    He is just starving for attention again.......

    Actually, CEO's tend to make more when the stock price goes higher, not necessarily that the company make more.
    Yes, my higher education taught me that.
    Did your higher education miss that?

    You can say whatever you wish about me, with statements like, I'm saying that Oil Company's THEMSELVES guarantee they make themselves a profit.,
    I have little reason to value your opinion.

    Please tell me how oil companies guarantee themselves a profit?
    What do you know that I don't?
    OMG...

    Did you even try to comprehend what I wrote, or read the links???

    MARGINS vs SET AMOUNTS

    The reason the Gov did not "get rich" is because they make the SAME AMOUNT on a gallon no matter what the cost is.
    The amount is STILL the same, but is a much higher % per gallon because the price per gallon is down.

    The oil companies never allow cost to lower their profit margins below a set %. They cut spending, THAT is how they guarantee a profit.

    Read the links, I'm tired of trying to spoon feed ya'.

    Not one time have I said or implied the oil industry is evil or corrupt. I did say it's a business to make money and not one time have I said that's wrong.
    As far as rich, corporate and business goes, you don't think the oil industry falls somewhere in that category? Which of these categories would you say they don't fall under?

    "What the hell do I know about drilling and fracking?"
    I'll go out on a limb and say I know way more than you think I know, and I'll venture that I know a whole hell of a lot more than you do. As I said, people say the stupidest things, bro.

    I'll show my ignorance and ask, what is a Rep-con principle?
    I did a google search on the word, and it too is apparently unaware of your vast knowledge.
    I have no idea what you know about the oil industry, nor do I care. But what you have displayed here since you showed up is merely an opinion lacking in principle or substance.

    Reading skills are also a big plus when you want to come in and play "bad ass". Nothing in that post was directly to you, just about you. You obviously don't know who Cvx is, otherwise you would understand Rep-con. And, that last statement in my post was sarcasm directed at Tommy, i.e. "That Guy" not you Bro.
    But keep swinging. It's been pretty boring in PRF for a while. We haven't had a punching bag in here for some time.

    Wow, that post of yours is just off the chart ridiculous. It's very hard to contain my urge to insult your intelligence.

    In reality it just doesn't work that way.
    The extra money went to investors and CEO's.
    As a company, they are only going to spend where they think they earn more money, that's business
    To say that what a company makes determines what they spend is utter nonsense.
    Which company are you referring too?
    If an industry overproduces it product, who's responsible for that? You and me?
    Are you saying that oil companies should be guaranteed a profit.

    Another thing that we need to remember is that the Arab countries cost to produce a barrel of crude is probably the cheapest in the world, especially when compared to what it costs most American oil companies that have to frack and that have to put up with all of the regulations that our government and our EPA have in place. The Arabs can live with cheap oil prices a hell of a lot longer than we can.
