You are a liar and a fool.
""Here is a list of the top 10 corporate deadbeats and slackers:
1) Exxon Mobil made $19 billion in profits in 2009. Exxon not only paid no federal income taxes, it actually received a $156 million rebate from the IRS, according to its SEC filings.
4) Chevron received a $19 million refund from the IRS last year after it made $10 billion in profits in 2009.
6) Valero Energy, the 25th largest company in America with $68 billion in sales last year received a $157 million tax refund check from the IRS and, over the past three years, it received a $134 million tax break from the oil and gas manufacturing tax deduction.
9) ConocoPhillips, the fifth largest oil company in the United States, made $16 billion in profits from 2007 through 2009, but received $451 million in tax breaks through the oil and gas manufacturing deduction.
----------
Out of the top ten deadbeats, oil companies comprise 4 of the spots.
You were saying something about specifics??
Read it and weep, nitwit.
ExxonMobil in 2011 made $27.3 billion in cash payments for income taxes. Chevron paid $17 billion and ConocoPhillips $10.6 billion. And not only were these the highest amounts in absolute terms, when compared with the rest of the 25 most profitable U.S. companies, the trio also had the highest effective tax rates. Exxon’s tax rate was 42.9%, Chevron’s was 48.3% and Conoco’s was 41.5%. That’s even higher than the 35% U.S. federal statutory rate, which is already the highest tax rate among developed nations.
The lowest were automakers Ford and GM, despite $20 billion and $9 billion in net income, respectively, paid a scant $270 million and $570 million in taxes.
Just what are those tax breaks the president wants to take away from Big Oil? Here’s the three biggest ones. First off, the president doesn’t think that oil companies should be able to get credit on their U.S. income tax bills for all the billions in income taxes they pay to oil-rich regimes around the world. Second, the president doesn’t think Big Oil should be allowed to deduct from taxable income some of those costs incurred in exploring for oil and drilling wells. Third, the president wants to cancel oil companies’ domestic manufacturing tax deduction of 6% of the value of oil and gas they produce in the United States.
Left-leaning tax groups like the Citizens for Tax Justice try to make the case that ExxonMobil pays tax of just 13% or so on its U.S. profits. But if Exxon pays a smaller portion of its taxes in the U.S. it’s because it faces huge tax bills overseas in countries like Angola where the petroleum income tax is as high as 70%. Like every U.S. multinational, Exxon gets tax credits that offset their U.S. tax liability by the amount of tax paid to other countries.
The deduction for oil drilling costs isn’t much different from the deductions that pharmaceutical companies are allowed to take for research and development costs (no one has proposed taking those away). And as for the domestic manufacturing deduction, every other company that manufactures anything in the U.S. can deduct up to 9% of the income they generate on those goods. Right now, oil companies only get a 6% deduction on the oil and gas they produce.

Republicans Mask Their Conservative Agenda

When President Obama won in November the electorate also rendered a verdict on the priorities of the two major political parties. Democrats, most voters believe, are more concerned with the plight of the middle class than Republicans, who ran on a platform of actually lowering income taxes on wealthy Americans.

In the intervening months, Republican operatives have become practitioners of a new kind of alchemy, attempting with little success to convince voters that the right’s long-standing agenda — reduced regulation for big business, lower taxes for the wealthy and big corporations, privatized and diminished social services — is actually an array of policies that coincidentally meets the needs of the middle class.

Enter House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, whoÂ’s hit upon a new plan. If you canÂ’t turn lead into gold, go out and buy some gold paint.

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/02/re...

The GOPÂ’s real, immediate priorities are no different than they were before the election.

Those priorities didnÂ’t carry the day in November. And in the months since, Republicans, and the conservative movement writ large, have been debating amongst themselves whether their priorities need an overhaul, or whether they just need to shoehorn them into packaging that will appeal to the broad middle class.

That internal struggle continues to some extent over the issue of immigration reform. But the new argument on the right isnÂ’t over whether the GOPÂ’s problem is substance or salesmanship, but whether it should sell its real priorities, or a separate bill of second-order goods.
Why do you want the government telling you what to do with your life?

Why do you hate freedom so much?

Studies show countries with low rates of civilian firearms ownership are the most violent. Countries with high rates of civilian firearms ownership are the safest.

Just look to nearby Mexico if you want to see an example of the gun-grabbers’ idea of utopia. Effectively ruled by violent drug gangs in many areas, parts of Mexico are cesspools of rape, violence and murder.

I've been a Saints fan since the very beginning of the franchise.
Soccer isn't my favorite sport, although I enjoy watching it. I'm a rugby person. Rugby is the last mano-a-mano sport still played. No protection. Just laws and one referee.
I did enjoy seeing Baltimore win. A player like Ray Lewis comes along once a decade, maybe more seldomly. I liked seeing him retire with a Super Bowl win. And I also think John is a better coach than Jim.
But, San Francisco is for real. I think they are the team to beat in the NFL.

The criticality of oil to our economy is not at issue in this discussion. The question is whether or not the oil industry is subsidized. In this post you're justifying those subsidies not disproving them.
You're the one claiming our "occupation" of the middle east is a subsidy. I'm claiming it's a matter of national security. You made the "criticality of oil to our economy" part of the discussion. Now you want to put the goal post back where it was.

That's cool, Homer is a Giant's fan, I agree with all you stated as well.

Just wanted to see if you could converse on a human level away from your usual 'Who's gonna pay for Obama's government blah blah blah' diatribe.

Cheers.

Bottom line Homer would rather discontinue subsidies to oil companies than give up Saturday mail delivery.
Finishing up that fresh cup of coffee while reading the morning paper, always in the back of your mind the thought of the mail arriving. Then when you know it's time you put on your slippers and take a stroll out to the mailbox, waving at the mail person as they whisk off in the distance with there bounty of letters.
The scent of pine and fresh mown grass greet you as you begin your walk to the mailbox a gentle breeze in your hair and the sun's warmth on your face, each step your pace quickens with the anticipation of finally getting your hands on the morning's correspondence, a smile comes to your face as you finally reach the mailbox.
But alas you have to wait until Monday, as clouds form above you and within a flash the skies open up drenching you as you run back to your house, wet and miserable you think back to days gone by...
Actually, that scent is the exhaust from the old truck used to deliver the mail out to you hill billies.
