    I have a feeling Louisiana will be doing a ton of investigating and will hammer away at the feds to do likewise.

    wtf how do republicans explain this one?

    The simple answer is, "they don't".

    Look at Halliburton.

    Thousands of Americans lose their retirement and life savings. The first thing out of Bush mouth was "they are innocent".

    Halliburton has received more than 20 billion dollars in American money from the US since 2003 in no-bid contracts from the Republicans. See how it works? Halliburton rips off Americans and then those same Americans pay Halliburton even MORE. The very people that were ripped off.

    Republicans protected and helped this corporation. Worse, most of those that got fucked by Halliburton, will now fuck the country by voting Republican. Isn't that hilarious?

    Worst, Halliburton is all tied up with BP. Halliburton and BP fuck Americans, but Republicans do it by proxy, using Halliburton and BP.

    ---------------------------------------

    The Securities & Exchange Commission is already investigating accounting practices at Halliburton. The company has said it is cooperating with the probe but believes it did nothing wrong.

    Cheney was chairman and chief executive of Halliburton from 1995 to 2000.

    Jennifer Millerwise, a Cheney spokeswoman, said: "This is a case without merit" -- a line echoed by White House spokesman Ari Fleischer.

    The suit was filed a day after President Bush called for higher ethical standards for corporations, stricter laws against abuses and more responsible business leaders Tuesday in the shadow of corporate misdeeds by Enron, WorldCom and other major companies.

    News Flash:

    Republicans win House and Senate - middle class Americans get royally screwed.

    I'd be intersted in learning how many were paid off or members of this administration to take the fall in order to justify Opuka's oil industry shut-down.

    He's wanted to do it from day one. I knew when he took office that he would find a way. This was like a little present to him.

    Who would "pay" for a shut down. The money is in keeping the oil flowing.

    You better review your Republican "sound bytes" and "slogans" pamphlett. You missed one of the classes.

    murkins duped again.
    Until CEO's and their bums of directors start shedding their own blood, it'll remain that way forever.
    It's coming.......... but drugged up murkins are very slow to wake up.
