I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised, but I am disappointed that Jon Stewart would be that disingenuous. First of all, there is a HUGE difference between a program that takes tax payer money and GIVES it individuals and a tax ruling that merely LESSENS the amount of taxes a producer pays.
But let's look at the truth about that $4 billion:
$1 billion is for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to ensure against oil shortages.
$1 billiion is for farm fuel tax exemptions.
$570 million for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program - the only reason it is called a "subsidy" is because it reduces the price of fuel
$1.7 billion from the manufacturer's tax deduction to encourage keeping manufacturing in the US - the same tax deduction that Apple and Microsoft use
"Because of misleading political rhetoric, people imagine these subsidies as cash payments to oil companies. But many of these subsidies are not what people think they are. In many cases they are benefiting people who have nothing to do with the oil industry - yet the money spent on these programs is still tallied against the oil industry."
And people love to scream in ignorance about the tax subsidies - a misnomer in reality - but lets look at the taxes oil companies DO pay:
Exxon in 2011:
"The number grabbing the headlines was Exxon's profit:$10.65 billion in a single quarter. The number not given quite as much exposure was the taxes it paid in that same quarter:$8 billion, or 42% of income before taxes."
'And what does Exxon do with all that money it has left after paying $8 B in taxes? It put $7.8 billion into capital and exploration, as part of its plans "to invest between $33 billion and $37 billion per year over the next five years to develop new energy supplies."'
"In any other industry, that would be called "research and development." Exxon is plowing 73% of its after-tax profits back into R&D. Who would be better at spending $4 billion of energy companies' earnings in an attempt to provide our energy in the future: the energy companies or Obama's energy czar?"
"Do you know what oil company does get US subsidies, and not just tax "breaks"? Petrobras, Brazil's state-owned oil company."

I expected better of you Mr Stewart.
You have finally succeed in proving one thing, you brain is completely "washed", congrats.

Forbes is almost as bad as FNC, you do know who owns Forbes don't you, you do realize his reasons for saying what he says, don't you. Well maybe not.

People like you who scream when "they" talk about raising the minimum wage. Scream when "they" talk about helping the poor. You don't understand or care what the cost of energy to get to that place of work that doesn't even pay a living wage. Must less what it can do to 2 people earning minimum wage just to feed and to keep those kids warm in the winter. They have NOTHING, while the rich get richer and nuts like you praise them for their greed.

The oil companies are not the only ones at fault. The way fossil fuels are sold is in my opinion a true "Sin". Something that has such a huge impact on everyday life is traded like corn. If Putin farts in Russia, the price of gas goes up 5 cents or more. If he actually has a bowel movement it goes up 25 cents. That's on product already in the tank waiting to be sold, the true cost of the product has no impact on the price is sells for. The laws of supply and demand should not apply to products that kill people. Don't think they do, people with no money using space heaters just to warm themselves, or burning wood in a pot in the middle of the floor just to stay warm. Or old people just freezing to death.

This conduct coming from a people who claim to be from the human race, especially that part of the human race that "claims" to be Christians.

Get the Republicans out of a woman's womb. Of course other methods of birth control are preferred. But when a woman looks at her Republican husband then of course she would want to abort his offspring. How could she go wrong in wanting to do that?

"Federal judge strikes down Arkansas 12-week abortion law
By Kyle Johnson, 3/15/2014
A federal judge on Friday struck down an Arkansas abortion law aimed at outlawing nearly all abortions in the state after 12 weeks.
The law said that if at 12 weeks a fetal heartbeat could be heard through a normal ultrasound, the woman could not have an abortion."

Well dumb azz..........this just goes to show you didn't look at either link..........Forbes dot com or the americanthinker dot com..........


If so.......you would have noticed Forbes had nary a thing to say in regards to what Aggie posted........whereas most of the last part of Aggies post is based on what americanthinker had to say..........perhaps Forbes was put in as a bait for dummies....and you were caught…….I really don’t know why Aggie put in a link to Forbes, because I saw no link to oli taxes there…….…..


Be that as it may, you completely ignore the websites and the subject of Oil taxes……….and go off on a tangent about poor folks........and bitching about the cost of gas……..and crying about min wages…….and dragging in Putin’s bowel habits……and then imply "oil kills people"…………old people freezing to death…………all the while giving us multiple libroid whines…………….I do believe you have invented some new ones, that only libroids can understand………….

"A spokesman for the Ukrainian border guard service, Oleg Slobodyan, told The Associated Press the Russians, about 120 in all, took control of a natural gas distribution station in the village. The Foreign Ministry said the force consisted of about 80 and didn't mention the station, but said the village was seized."

Obama did not attend the meeting but was being briefed about it and other developments involving Ukraine, said Laura Lucas Magnuson, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council."

You posted a whole lot of blather and nothing of substance. In no way did you counter the proof that Stewart was comparing apples to oranges. The source is irrelevant IF the information is factual. That is why the Left hates Fox so much, Fox gives facts that the other networks tend to ignore because those inconvenient truths don't mesh well with their nice little leftist playbook.
As to the rest of your nonsense, it is a fact that raising the minimum wage is far more likely to reduce the number of jobs available - kinda like Obamacare. All those nice platitudes that the Left throw out cannot compare to the reality of what their feel good policies actually do to those they claim to care about.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2012), those making minimum wage make up less than 5% of the workforce, 21% making minimum wage are teenagers, less than 3% are over 25, so do the math - 97% of minimum wage workers are under 25.
There are three simple steps to have a 98% probability of staying OUT of poverty:
-graduate high school
-get a job
-DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN before you get married

The rest of your post about fossil fuels was truly deranged.
