    Yet another connection to Russia and big oil.

    It turns out that Exxon Mobil had in 2013 an agreement with the state owned russian oil company to drill in the KARA Sea north of Siberia. It is reportedly the biggest oil deal in history which was interrupted by Obama's sanctiond for the Russian business in Crimea. And now we've magically got Rex Tillerson as Sec of State. The guy who could potentially make the deal if not for sanctions, hence the big push to lessen those very sanctions. The deal could net the Russians and Exxon nearly half a trillion dollars. Well, that explains a whole lot, doesn't it? I knew there had to be oil somewhere in this remarkable election surprise.

    More oil is a bad thing?

    You know that most of the products you use are made of oil don't you?

    By the way, Obama and democrats actually had no problem with this deal until the Crimea affair so does that mean they are spy's for Russia also?

    Hmmmmm interesting indeed.

    Half a trillion is what the Russians and Exxon invested. They will make trillions in profit on their investment. If not they will be given a bailout by taxpayers.

    I suppose to them it is.

    Honestly I could care less what happens over there, it has no effect on me.

    Now cheaper oil would affect me so I would probably support lifting the sanctions.

    You know what is the most ugly thing in the world?

    Having no empathy for other people.

    Innocent people died by Russia's hand for goodness sake.

    Oh jesus, spare me the bleeding heart.

    I don't hear you complaining about all the other needless deaths around the world. Why aren't you yelling for sanctions against any multitude of nations in Africa or Southeast Asia that are committing horrendous crimes?

    This selective outrage is annoying.

    This is old news. I remember commenting when Trump first nominated Mr. Exxon. Shrub had Halliburton and Trump has Exxon. Symmetry is important.
