Our Supreme Court Chief "Justice" John Robert's comment on Exxon being ordered to pay $2.5billion — roughly three weeks’ worth of profits — for destroying a long swath of the Alaska coastline in the largest oil spill in American history.

I really hope like Homer Simpson Roberts then said, "Did I say that out loud?"
Three weeks worth of profit -poor Exxon...
I want a windfall profits tax starting yesterday.
