I have been trying to blog more about programming here. But this article from the AP Wire is just begging for attention. The article titled Exxon Mobil 2Q Profit Jumps 36 Percent
announces that the latest profit reports by Exxon Mobile amount to $10.35 billion. This is the second largest profit reported by a publicly traded company in the history of the United States.
This is outrageous. Americans are hemmed-in at every side. While the cost of living has skyrocketed, only wealthy corporate executives and “fat cat” politicians are receiving a raise. The Federal minimum wage has not been raised in 10 years while congressional salaries have increased 9 times during that same period. Write your representative, your governor and your senator. Let them know that we have a voice and it will be heard.
