i'll believe it when I see it

If George Bush cuts any spending to pay for Hurricaine Katrina relief, it'll be the first time in his Presidency that he ever said NO to throwing away taxpayer dollars. He has really chapped my Cracker ass with his inability to control federal spending.

Besides--- where are all the charitable donations going? I sent the Salvation Army $100, and the last numbers I read said that INDIVIDUALS had contributed close to ONE BILLION DOLLARS for hurricane relief. The money is still pouring in.

Why is rebuilding New Orleans the job of the federal government only? Why should US taxpayers foot the entire bill? If the feds take on that job, more than half of the money will be pissed away and reconstruction will take forever.

Of course, if the LOCAL government of Louisiana was worth a damn, they wouldn't be in this shape to begin with, so I ain't gonna suggest that we give the money to THEM to spend. Corrupt politicians will run off with most of the money and New Orleans will still smell like dead fish on the day I die. I suggest giving it to Haliburton--- a private company that has the wherewithall to do the job.

Yeah--- I know Haliburton is EVIL.

Government isn't?

You keep getting so close . . . so very close.

One day you will fall over the line into logic, and quit defending any government in any endeavor--including war.

Then you will understand YOUR constitution again.

had a conversation with a guy last w/e about Iraq and he mentioned the evil Haliburton corporation's sweet gift from Cheny. I said that I thought they were about the only company I could think of that had the resources and experience for the job and you would have thought I shot him in head.

Truth hurts I guess.

...you would have thought I shot him in head.

What -- he made a hollow "thump" sound, followed by the wind whistling through the cavity?

People like that, trying to blow their brains out would be like trying to get milk from a bull.

Having bought Halliburton at 35, I find Halliburton pure good.

Haliburton may be evil, but they have the equipment and manpower under contract to do the job. No, I don't own Haliburton stock, nor work for them but i'm not as stupid as the dim-wits that are always downing them because VP Chaney worked there at one time.
Want a major job completed on time and under cost, call Haliburton or one of the maybe three other companies in the world that can do the job.
If I ever hear a dim-wit make a statement with any common sense or truth in it i'll probably follow Fred Sanford and have the big one.
