ExxonMobil: #1 in the World in Many Ways, Except being a Responsible Neighbor

However, the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC has a very good 13-minute video rundown [here].
A Few Highlights from that clip include:
From 2006 - 2009, ExxonMobil earned billions and by 2010, they were earning an impressive $5 million per hour, 24/7.
They ranked #1 in the Fortune 500 above everyone else (including Wal-Mart) - but Wal-Mart is #1 now again, but ExxonMobil ranks #1 in the oil business. See list from 1955-2005 [here] - impressive.
Yet, according to Montana officials, ExxonMobil cannot figure out what is wrong or why. Cleanup has been slow as the Maddow show video shows.
Remember this from 2010 [film proof here]: ExxonMobil CEO whines about push to cut oil subsides - after they made $6.3 billion in one quarter of this report.
On top of all of this, the current GOP screams about cutting not only these oil subsidies but most other subsidies that continue to flow to and prop up very profitable corporations. The GOP says "... it would hurt them and amount to a tax increase."
It's hard not to roll on the floor laughing out loud isn't it?
