Springtime for Halliburton

I was going to sound the Fogghorn today about the no bid contracts for cleaning up the Katrina damage which will funnel a fortune into the coffers of the usual suspects, like Halliburton – and about the move by Bush to allow these contractors to pay below the minimum wage, thereby maximizing the profits of these already profitable companies while minimizing the boost in jobs that could offset the jobs lost in the storms. I stumbled into a blog of note however that has already done a great job

Read an excellent article about this at the Faithful Progressive

This last bit of corporate welfare is coming out of the hides of the poor, displaced and desperate who wouldn't vote Republican anyway and Bush's supporters would cheer if he allowed his pet corporations to use slave labor, so what does he have left to lose?

But I have spent the entire morning in a jury selection room listening to Faux News and I’m going to wait until the shock wears off before I post further.

"Read an excellent article about this at"...

The end of that sentence should read "The Daily Curmudgeon."
