I know - petitions are a pain -- but before you give up on them, sign this one. Please, pretty please -- for our future which hangs in the balance. Remember: Big Oil is not our friend. Ditto for banks, doctors, insurance companies, brokers, etc. ad nauseum. Maddi

Thanks Maddi, I signed the petition and will send it around. I hope it works, even if just a smidgen... It seems the more money you possess the more help you get if you gamble it all away. Makes no sense but who are we to question? It's always been that way and it always will remain that way... Pardon me for sounding so cynical... It seems, Pessimism and Skepticism is all they(The Big Oil, Big Banksters, Big Pharma, Big Insurance, Big Government {but only for the rich} and Big Medicine) have left us with. Carolyn

PS: Please sign STOP BIG OIL BAILOUTS petition here or below.

Stop Big Oil Bailouts www.stopbigoilbailouts.comI can't believe our government just gave Big Oil (includes BP) $35 billion in tax breaks! Sign this growing petition to help get them repealed.

America's richest oil companies are shaking you down.

While reaping the largest corporate profits in history, BP, ExxonMobil, Chevron and other Big Oil companies have shaken more than $35 billion in special subsidies and tax breaks out of the U.S. taxpayer. Then, when Big Oil dumps millions of gallons of oil into our oceans and waterways, they leave us with the cleanup bill.

BP and other Big Oil companies have been getting government hand-outs that fleece billions from taxpayers every year. ExxonMobil, the most profitable corporation in American history, avoided paying ANY income taxes to the Federal Government last year and then pocketed an additional $46 million from the IRS.

Surprised? We were.

Enough is enough. It's time to end federal subsidies and tax breaks to BP and other Big Oil companies. Instead of subsidizing the most profitable dirty fuel companies on the planet, we could be supporting new startups that specialize in clean and green energy. We can break our addiction to oil, create green jobs and make sure disasters like the one in the Gulf of Mexico never happen again.

But we need your support to make sure our leaders follow through.

Sign now to tell Congress and candidates for office nationwide to stop the shakedown, and stop taxpayer giveaways to Big Oil and all the other Dirty Fuels.

If Americans Die in a Pandemic - Blame the GOP

Thom plus logo As a possible pandemic looms on the horizon, the United States is the only developed nation in the world without a national healthcare system. Medicare For All is not just about saving as much as half of all of our half healthcare dollars, it's also about national security.
