Thomas Sowell @ NRO – Stop Continental Drift

Thomas Sowell on March 20 had a good piece on how we need to stop trying to make sense of the world we live in. Read it at NRO here

One point I liked in the piece was this paragraph regarding the obscene profits of “Big Oil” when gas prices rise:

Amid all the media hysteria over the price of gasoline and the profits of “Big Oil,” one simple fact has been repeatedly overlooked: The oil companies’ earnings are just under 10 percent of the price of a gallon of gas, while taxes take 17 percent. Yet who ever accuses the government of “greed”?

I wonder why this is never discussed in Congress or the MSM?
