Disaster Recontruction Contracts Awarded

Here is a shocker some of the first contracts for rebuilding struck areas have been awarded and at least three of the companies that have won them have ties to the Bush Administration. Here is the biggie, a puppet company of Haliburtion is one of them.

Does this company just have its fingers in that many pots, or can they just not care that people know that Chaney gets kick backs from them?

    Christ… let Chaney get his stinking kickbacks… if I was VP, I’d do the same damn thing. Power has no purpose unless you use the hell out of it anyway.

    I’m having an ‘evil is good’ day… 🙂

    Yeah you know because there is no better why to help people recover from a disaster than to take our tax dollars and give them to a company that then takes a part of them and give them to the VP. Why don’t we just increase his salary to like 4 million dollars and cut out the middle man? At least that way we have records of the money going to him.

    How is that different from taking our tax dollars and giving them out as $2k debit cards? Either way, the tax dollars are being used up.
    This is why I want the ability to vote my tax dollars, like I do my 401k. If everyone wants to vote their taxes for katrina relief, then let them rock on with that. I’d like to vote my taxes for better education or the freeway system.
    And that would be one way to keep Halliburton from getting the cash.
    You don’t think there are profiteering middlemen that are making cashola in this Katrina business that are non-administration related?

    Are you serious how is that different? One goes to an evil corrupt bastard, who lost no money in the disaster and the other goes toward helping the people that have nothing left in their life.

    Say I would say they are close to the same. er… wait maybe not.

    As I said in this article on my website… I’d guess that there are -plenty- of evil corrupt bastards (ECB’s) who are benefiting from this situation. It is irrelevant which specific ECB the loot ends up with, since the only reality is that it has left my hands and ended up in theirs.
    Tarring and feathering Chaney won’t change that.

    So you are obviously not a big fan of the death penalty for prisoners then huh?

  7. maxx says:

    Actually, I -am- a -huge- proponent of the death penalty. By which I mean the “rope and tree” $0.50 method, and not the 10 years in prison followed by numerous appeals followed by a lethal injection that somehow miraculously costs the taxpayer $2M per.

  8. Brent says:

    Yeah I know and if you ask most people that are for the death penalty why it is better than just letting them rot in prison, they say because it is a deterrent for crime. Just as sending the VP to a hurt locker for being evil would hopefully be a deterrent for other people.

  9. maxx says:

    Okay, that is logic I can agree with.
    Though I doubt that either the death penalty -or- sending the VP to prison would really deter the truly motivated, I can agree that it -might- cut back on the numbers somewhat. That is a good thing for the taxpayer, and so I am on board with that idea.
