i dont think that bush will veto stem-cell research, unless he is really pressured into it.
Im not sure what the numbers were for Exxon Mobile last year, but im almosty positve that they didn't make a record profit, even thought they made a larger profit in dollers last year percentage wise they made a smaller profit. They made a larger profit money wise becuase on a whole they made more money becuase but a large amount of the money isnt profit.
check this out, in 2004 Exxon in total made 298 billion dollars but made a a profit of 25.3 billion so 8.4% of the money that went into the company was profit. In 2003 however they made 250 billion dollars and had 21billion of it as profit, which is 9% of all the money they made in 03, so even though they made more money in 2004 in reality their profit wasnt larger.
And of the profit that exxon mobile made in both those years almost half of it went right back into exploring for more oil, which is an extremely expensive and risky endevor
But im agaisnt the Federal government handing out money to anyone, especialy big business
Well the price of gas where i live went from 3.00 a gallon this summer to a little above 2.00 in October, but theres no way of knowing if thats becuase of a bush tax cut or not. Whats interesting is that the price of oil has droped from 75$ a gallon to 50$ a gallon in the last month and a half, but the price of gas has stayed about the same......hmmmm.
I dont want to wait a month to have to see a doctor, for anything even if it isnt lifethreatening.
Exactly if i need a surgery, even a minor one like and ACL surgery i dont want to have to wait months for it.
