the Fortune 500

The Fortune 500 list has been updated again. Apple computer has jumped 18 spots to number 17. Their staggering 25.9 BILLION in PROFITS only got them 3rd place in that category, behind, ahem, Exxon Mobil ($41.6 BILLION in profits) and Chevron with a paltry $26.9 billion in profits. (high gas prices any one? Increased production does…what folks?)

And Exxon, with 453 billion in revenue overtook wal-mart (447 billion) for the top spot.

Now, for some REALLY interesting numbers- who wants to look into the rate of executive pay, the government subsidies received, the taxes paid, the worker salary and percentage of employees receiving government aid? to be continued…


About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
