fucking supreme court

You all hear about the Exxon Valdez settlement?

The Supreme Court decided yesterday that the settlement for Alaskan fishermen after the Exxon Valdez disaster 20 years ago will be cut by $2 billion. TWO BILLION DOLLARS!!! The S.C. decided that the settlement for the case couldn’t exceed the amount of money needed to compensate for actual losses, which comes to $507 million dollars. The original settlement amount was $2.5 billion dollars.

If it was the American taxpayers who needed to pay this settlement I’d think it was great, because it’d mean less money going out of my pocket.

But it isn’t. It’s Exxon-Mobil who has to pay it.

Last year it took 2 days for Exxon-Mobil to make that much money in profits. 2 days. $2 billion.

Let the fishermen have their fucking money.
