Maybe Wal Mart moved UP from #2 to #1 not because they made a bigger profit but because Exxon had a reduction in profit.<quoted text>
Exxon, with a 5% drop in profit, no doubt, I guess, I think, after skimming much off the top in its foreign operations (Bahamas, Bermuda and Cayman bankers must be ecstatic), is still making what I'd call immoral profits. Friends of Obama, Exxon? How come it made 5% more last year? Walmart is Obama's friend? Well, well, who knew? Jimmy Buffet is a singer. Who's this Jimmy Buffett you're talking about? And the top man is Warren Buffett.
But I did notice that you did not comment about Berkshire Hathaway moving from #7 to #5 with a 50% increase in profit. I thought the word profit was evil to you? Especially since Warren Buffett is in the same field as ..... Mitt Romney!!!
And Warren Buffett owns the worlds largest personal jt fleet in the world, NetJets. I thought you hated personal/business jets too? And Warren Buffett owns 340+ private jets!!!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
NetJets, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, offers fractional ownership and rental of private business jets
