Obscene profits for obscene people

By

Marxists, socialists, anti Americans, the uninformed, the easily duped, the useful idiots and others in that vast herd of independent minds are quickly deployed to violently protest whenever a World Trade Organization meets to discuss erasing trade barriers and spreading the wealth; whenever an oil company announces higher profits; whenever they're bored and need some media attention.
 
But somehow I have a feeling they're going to stay put if the news ever penetrates their brain damaging, environmentally damaging  fog  that 

Oil powerhouse Saudi Arabia said it will post a record budget surplus of 57 billion dollars in 2005 on the back of surging crude prices, and forecast its biggest—ever spending plans for next year. 

Will they swiftly and bravely book flights to riot in the streets of Riyadh or Mecca protesting that higher oil prices hurt "the people"?  Or will they wave their little signs in front of Saudi embassies and consulates around the world——or at least that part of the nasty world that actually allows this?

Or will they fearlessly denounce America and Israel for Saudi Arabia's obscene oil profits and the resulting hardships for "the people"?

Duh!
