With all due respect, I'm not here to pick and choose. I think everybody that pays taxes could use a freakin tax break.
Are the Exxons going to eat the extra taxes or are you going to eat them at the pump ?
It just seems silly to even think that the big O&G's are going to suffer through paying even more then they may or may not have been paying up until this point.
FYI......When gas hit $4 a gallon, the Exxon Mobils actually recorded record takes. I believe it was around $9,000,000,000 extra , one quarter in particular. Yes that is small change to this current admin but thats a heep of money that they profited from at the expense of our backsides. If the tax burden is increased they will simply tack that on too. Heck, it probably jumped $.15 a gallon just while they were thinking about the possibilities of it going up.
In closing, lest we all forget.........If I receive a tax "Break", I am getting some of "MY" money back. Quit trying to make that sound so freakin dirty! If you are comfortable with higher taxes, sit down and right a check for yours and mine. If you and your pals are doing well enough, write an extra check for some of the others that are tired of the "Taxation without representation"!
Tell the government to do what most normal people do when things get tight. Tighten up your belt a notch or two and curb excessive spending. Dont go on a spending spree with someone elses money for Petes sake and quit freakin blowing money like you got a printing press!.......Oh yea, they do have a printing press.(chuckle,chuckle) My bad!
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
