Drilling expense write offs from a 1916 law intended to help what was once a crap shoot to find oil and which a century later still benefits Exxon, Chevron, Shell, etc. to the tune of almost $4 billion; depletion allowance from 1926 intended to encourage exploration when it is then impossible to know how long a well would produce that benefits the robber barons to the tune of about $1 billion per year; a domestic manufacturing deduction (really, are oil wells in the U.S. going to be drilled from China through the center of the Earth to under the U.S.?) benefiting robber barons by another half billion or more per year.

"It is past time that we give alternatives the same corporate subsidies we give oil robber barons in the form of corporate welfare." Mind telling us---specifically---what corporate subsidies you have in mind?

Thanks for the opportunity. I love California. I was just at the beach on Sunday enjoying the 70 degree weather. It feels a lot like Arizona. In fact, I may be flying down to Arizona in two weeks to catch a couple of A's games. Take care,

Thanks for becoming my newest buddy. It looks like GB may be rolling back the new points policy. We don't need more people driving around texting or watching videos. Oh, I'm an ex-Californian. Was transferred here in 1980, life is good but we sure miss going to the beach on a whim.

Hi Warren, Happy to be buddies. I consider smart phones only as smart as their operators and under those terms, my phone is not a smart phone either. :-)

Hi Kataman. Good comment about the new points for watching videos. Would you care to become buddies with somebody without a 'smart' phone?? Warren

by Kataman  Feb 18, 2015

Yeah, I don't think there is much at this point to help with the better looking part. Brad Pitt I am not. ;-)

Give it a try, you might just be that good. ;-)

by Kataman  Feb 16, 2015

Thanks PDQBlues. If I was better looking, smarter and a smoother orator, I might try out to replace Colbert and Stewart.

I like your sarcasm. :-)
