Cong. Dennis Kucinich (is he Croatian ... if so I appologize .... we're not all like this) was on Cavuto on Fox yesterday calling for an excess profits tax on the oil companies. Excess profits would be determined by a board, I'm thinking made up of politicans and maybe beauticians, who knows.

Anyway when Cavuto pressed him on imposing an "excess profits" tax on any company might be counter to ... ummm ... capitalism, Kuncinich said people are hocking watches and giving up food for gas.
