ALL THIS talk about excess oil-company profits is absurd!

There's no such thing as excess profits. They're supposed to maximize profits. I bet even candidates Obama and Clinton have mutual funds in their portfolios that hold oil-company stock. So everyone is profiteering from oil company profits. And you could say all the rhetoric on Capitol Hill is fueled by oil companies, too. We are oil. And, in Pennsylvania,

we're coal, too.
