Halliburton Moves to Dubai
Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s former company, is pulling up roots in Texas and moving to Dubai in an effort to expand business in the Middle East.
“As the CEO, I’m responsible for the global business of Halliburton in both hemispheres and I will continue to spend quite a bit of time in an airplane as I remain attentive to our customers, shareholders and employees around the world,” he said.
Why is this not suprising news? And I guess my second thought would wonder if the move doesn’t give them a great edge in war profiteering.
Bush Administration Screws Cold War Veterans
Now this “unreported” news story should make you vomit. All of those workers who’ve made a living out of making atomic bombs during the cold war, are now very sick as I’m sure you could understand. Dying from radioactive poisoning is an ugly way to meet your maker. But, leave it to Bush to make it worse by trying to bilk payments for health care.
Rep. Mark Udall, D-Colo., said, “Clearly, the administration put dollars above honoring the nation’s promise to the Cold War veterans.”
He added this is “almost worse” than the bad conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. That was negligence, Udall said, where “this seems to be a pretty callous plan that the administration knew could harm sick veterans.”
What an unbelievable treasonous act of injustice. It positively boggles the mind. My h/t to John Aravosis for keeping all of us so well informed.
Jerry Falwell Embraces Divorced Gingrich On Behalf Of the Religious
Another Aravosis story. Jerry Falwell has written his support of Newtie Gingrich, ignoring his complete lack of “family values” by being twice divorced and an untold number of extramarital affairs. (Including that affair Gringrich was having while he was stumping to impeach Clinton for that extramarital… “encounter”.)
Since Ted Haggard announced that he was a “Crystal Meth”odist last October, the Christian
Right Wrong has been showing more of it’s moral bankruptcy.
“He has admitted his moral shortcomings to me, as well, in private conversations,” Falwell wrote in a weekly newsletter sent Friday to members of the Moral Majority Coalition and The Liberty Alliance. “And he has also told me that he has, in recent years, come to grips with his personal failures and sought God’s forgiveness.”
Falwell, Dobson, Robertson and the rest of these people are hypocriting themselves into obscurity. “Hypocriting”?! Hrmmm… I know there’s a better word out there.
What Happens In Vegas, Stays in Vegas
This is awesome, marry the girl and then run her over. The not-so-happy couple gets married on the 4th of March in Las Vegas and by the time they get home, they’re already fighting. She jumps out, probably yelled a few insults at him, and throws the clutch and runs her over and knocks her into a snowbank.
Police received an emergency call Monday from someone reporting a couple fighting in a car as they traveled on Highland Drive, about 10 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. Katie Martindale, 29, apparently got out of the car and started to walk away when James Olwine, 33, drove off the road and hit her with the car, pushing her into a snowbank, Jaroscak said.
Nice. And they say gay marriage doesn’t promote “good family values”.
Skinny Inmate Escapes Through His Cell’s “Food Slot”
Another reason to get on that diet; If you’re thrown into jail, your chances of escape increase with a few cans of Slim Fast!
A correctional officer found Artez Kenyetta Knox, 28, walking in a jail hallway after police said the 130-pound man took off his clothes, shoved them through the food slot and then wiggled through himself.
Well, that’s all the news I’m going to give you for now. Since you don’t pay me much to read the news to you, I figure I can quit reading it anytime I want. So there!
