Awesome

I know this is one reason ExxonMobil is hated by many, but you gotta love a CEO who is actually willing to speak his mind rather than spew the reconstituted generic platitudes that you get from most companies.  From CEO Rex Tillerson:

"If you want to live by the precautionary principle, then crawl up in a ball and live in a cave."

    “If you want to live by the precautionary principle, then crawl up in a ball and live in a cave.”

    Love that quote--and it applies to many federal government functions.

    Do anyone realize that we spend $80 billion a year just in Defense Department R&D?

    And our only "enemies" are a few punk terrorists "armed" largely with homemade bombs?

    That no nation is a military threat to us? That other nations that do have militaries are allies?

    Sheesh, even if we shut down just Defense R&D, and kept the huge $1 trillion a year Defense-Homelnd Security-VA complex, we would save $800 billion in just 10 years.

    But who cares? Let's just kick the can down the road....

    That has to be the height of

    Tillerson for President!

    Hey, we need SOMEBODY with the balls to say what needs to be said!
