Oh no, how will they survive?

ExxonBetter prepare another round of targeted tax cuts.

Exxon Mobil Corp.’s quarterly profit fell 18% from last year, but the oil and gas giant still made nearly $8 billion…

It was Exxon’s second-smallest quarterly profit since mid-2010, beating only this year’s second-quarter earnings of $6.86 billion. Still, the results exceeded expectations.

But in these austere times, where will we find the money to help a poor multinational out?

Oh, yeah.

the food-stamp program is now set to downsize in the weeks ahead. There’s a big automatic cut scheduled for Nov. 1, as a temporary boost from the 2009 stimulus bill expires. That change will trim about $5 billion from federal food-stamp spending over the coming year.

Funny how Exxon/Mobil could pick up the tab on that and still have $3 billion in profit, yet I’m pretty sure we’re going to find a way to give them even more.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
