Oil companies talking about improving education!!

Every time I watch one of these commercials, (example ExxonMobile), I think "Really!!".

The point being that, here is a company making record profits and is also taking government subsidies. This lessens the money government could use toward education funding. They also crow about how they are doing cleaning up after their errors and how business is rebounding in the Golf Coast States, etc... When if they had done the right thing in the beginning and not taken shortcuts in safety equipment and procedures, the spill would never had happened.

So when these companies start trying to spin their stories. I think to myself, "Really!!"
