We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Exxon Mobil CEO Calls U.S. Energy Independence Irresponsible Wednesday, March 08, 2006

You know ... I generally am a nice guy but every now and then, I feel the need to use some expletives and not delete them. Rex Tillerson, top dog at Exxon Mobil needs to go fuck himself and here's why:

He's gone on to say that any of the areas in the U.S. that are currently off limits shouldn't be with regard to getting oil and gas.

America imports 10 million barrels of oil a day while it sits on an abundance of potential, according to Exxon Mobil Chairman and Chief Executive Rex Tillerson, who spoke to reporters and editors from Dow Jones & Co. (publisher of MarketWatch) one day ahead of the company's annual meeting.

Tillerson, who took over from the retired Lee Raymond in January, left no doubt that he will continue his hard-charging predecessor's push to open Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Rocky Mountain tracts and waters off Florida and California to drilling.

This stance has long pitted Exxon against conservationists who argue that the nation should prioritize energy efficiency before it lifts drilling bans on sensitive federal lands.

Naturally, the head of the company that made the most profits of any company in this history of this company is calling for more drilling. He needs to go away. While they continually shaft the American public by manipulating oil commodities markets and creating havoc in oil producing nations, oil companies like his have continued to profit.

Irresponsibility in this country comes from not protecting the interests of the American public by forcing us into conflicts in the middle east and destroying the environment not just in this country but others as well.

You think the problems in Nigeria would be happening if Royal Dutch Shell really talked to the government there and suggest they spread the wealth around a bit to keep people happy? No because things like that keep oil prices up and they make more money and it's cheaper just to shoot them.
