Typical Libtardian response. Because the other side does it, so can my side. But to me it is sort of like going 5 mph over the speed limit while a guy passes me doing 20+ over the speed limit and the other just justifies doing it because I am doing it!
I've had two ten-over speeding tickets in the past forty years and both were in my big truck rolling down a hill! They probably would not have ticketed a car for doing the same thing.

A transcript of the July 25 segment is below: 5:58 PM EDT
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Let me finish tonight with this. I said it before and I'm now saying it again: There are too many people on the American right who hate the very notion of Barack Obama in the White House. It grates on them, just as it thrills, even now, tens of millions of others. They hate not just his politics, but him. Think about all the days we have known him, from way back when he gave that breathtaking speech to the 2004 convention. Was there ever a time in all the days and weeks and months and years since that his haters in on the right have stopped in their tracks and said, "well, good for him. I like the way he did that." Think hard. Have his haters ever stopped hating him? When we got bin Laden, when the stock market doubled, doubling every 401k, making all those haters richer, twice as rich as they were when Bush left us stranded with a drooping, scary economy.
Did they ever look up and say, even hesitantly, "well, I'll give him this one." No, no, no. You can discount it all. You can say it's not about race or whatever. You can say it. But think about this: In all the criticisms from the haters about African-Americans generally, all the years of your life, and think about this man's life, about how hard he has worked, how he has achieved so highly at school, how he has married so well and so faithfully, how he has fathered two great daughters and kept them protected, protected them, been a truly great father to them, been a true partner in his marriage, treated his office with such respect and dignity, has never once let us down with his personal behavior, and yet they hate him.
They really do. And I don't have to be the one to tell you, we live in a country where a good chunk of the country hates its elected president, and won't really, I mean really, tell you why. It's the same reason they spend there time thinking of clever gimmicks to keep so many people from voting. Anybody disagree? That's Hardball for now.
Deservingly So.

10 missteps Obama made at Knox

President Obama’s economic hour-long speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., on Wednesday was scary, not just for its statements, but for what some characterize as disregard of the rule of law.

Obama made yet another case for government spending — which he calls “investment”— on infrastructure, education, and health care. Then he threatened to use executive power or public shaming to move his agenda if Congress failed to act.

Politicians have a right to make their case, but not to make an end run around the law. Yet Obama said “I will not allow gridlock or inaction or willful indifference to get in our way. That means whatever executive authority I have to help the middle class, I’ll use it. Where I can’t act on my own and Congress isn’t cooperating, I’ll pick up the phone, I’ll call CEOs, I’ll call philanthropists, I’ll call college presidents, I’ll call labor leaders….”

Obama has a habit of overriding Congress. In the first two years of his term, a Democratic House and Senate did not pass cap-and-trade bills, which would limit greenhouse gas emissions. So Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency is doing cap-and-trade on its own. The Democratic Congress did not pass the DREAM Act, which would have allowed undocumented young people to remain in America. Obama told the Department of Homeland Security to allow them to stay.

Some legal experts, such as Stanford University professor Michael McConnell, say that the president is not allowed to pick and choose what laws to enforce. Obama appears to be pushing the limits of his power, which may make many Americans uncomfortable.

Later in the speech, Obama threatened businesses, many of whom are likely to be government contractors:“And I’ll be asking our businesses to set an example by providing decent wages and salaries to their own employees. And I’m going to highlight the ones that do just that. You know, there are companies like Costco, which pays good wages and offers good benefits, companies like The Container Store that prides itself on training its employees…”

Cheney colleague admits bribery in Halliburton oil deals
4 September 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/5eovvl
A former colleague of the US Vice-President, Dick Cheney, has pleaded guilty to funnelling millions of dollars in bribes to win lucrative contracts in Nigeria for Halliburton, during the period in the Nineties when Mr Cheney ran the giant oil and gas services company.
Albert Stanley, who was appointed by Mr Cheney as chief executive of Halliburton's subsidiary KBR, admitted using a north London lawyer to channel payments to Nigerian officials as part of a bribery scheme that landed some $6bn of work in the country over a decade.

Halliburton Doing Business With the 'Axis of Evil'
February 3, 2005 / http://tinyurl.com/5e5o5
The award for oddest geopolitical couple of 2005 goes to the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Houston-based Halliburton.
You might not think that a charter member of President Bush's "axis of evil" could enlist the oil-services firm once run by Vice President Cheney to bolster its bargaining position with an international community intent on curbing its nuclear ambitions.
But that is apparently what happened last month.
The story began on Jan. 9 when the Iran News ran a Reuters story reporting that Halliburton "has won a tender to drill a huge Iranian gas field."
The deal to develop two sections of Iran's South Pars gas field promises significant economic benefits.
"The project includes onshore and offshore sections and its initial phase is to become operational by the first quarter of 2007," said the Tehran-based news site. The total output of the phases will reportedly produce 50 million cubic meters per day of treated natural gas for domestic use and 80,000 barrels of gas liquids per day for export.

Under Cheney, Halliburton Helped Saddam Hussein Siphon Billions from UN Oil-for-Food Program
October 12, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/d7e6oa
When the Iraqi Survey Group released its long awaited report last week that said Iraq eliminated its weapons programs in the 1990s, President George W. Bush quickly changed his stance on reasons he authorized an invasion of Iraq. While he campaigned for a second term in office, Bush justified the war by saying that that Saddam Hussein was manipulating the United Nation’s oil-for-food program, siphoning off billions of dollars from the venture that he intended to use to fund a weapons program.
The report on Iraq’s non-existent weapons of mass destruction, prepared by Charles Duelfer, a former U.N. weapons inspector and head of the Iraqi Survey Group, said Saddam Hussein used revenue from the oil-for-food program and “created a web of front companies and used shadowy deals with foreign governments, corporations, and officials to amass $11 billion in illicit revenue in the decade before the US-led invasion last year," reports The New York Times.

Army agrees to pay Halliburton $2 billion for imaginary work
The U.S. Army agreed to pay Halliburton’s KBR subsidiary nearly $2 billion for work that nobody can prove ever took place. The work was allegedly performed in Iraq and Kuwait under the Army’s LOGCAP contract, awarded to KBR in 2001 via competitive bidding.
Under LOGCAP, KBR is responsible for military logistics, which includes feeding the troops, transporting military supplies, constructing military housing and offices, and maintaining laundry facilities. KBR is reimbursed by the Pentagon for its costs, then paid a fee of one to three percent of those costs. So far, KBR has received $6.4 billion for work under LOGCAP.
Army auditors determined last year that 43 percent of the $4.5 billion requested by Halliburton under LOGCAP could not be verified under normal accounting procedures.

I still think Obama is buffaloing people and companies into agreeing to things that really amount to nothing.
If Halliburton 'recommended" 21 centering devices and BP used only 6, did it contribute to the disaster? Next, does it amount to criminal negligence? Now, using Libtardian Logic, sense there was a disaster, it must have been so!
Lets say you have an old car that broke down and the mechanic recommends $5,000 worth of work but you just want to repair it enough so you can sell it so you approve only $500 worth of work.
Then someone buys you old car and the transmission fails and you are brought up on CRIMINAL charges?!?
Now don't forget that BP still has a multi-billion dollar lawsuit against the people who made the blow-out preventor and the disaster never would have happened if the preventor had worked properly.

Feds: Halliburton agrees to plead guilty in spill
Associated Press 10 hours ago

NEW ORLEANS (AP)-- Halliburton Energy Services has agreed to plead guilty to destroying evidence in connection with the 2010 Gulf oil spill, the Department of Justice said Thursday.

Federal officials said in a news release that a criminal information charging Halliburton with one count of destruction of evidence was filed in federal court in Louisiana.

Halliburton has agreed to pay the maximum fine, be on probation for three years and continue to cooperate with the government's criminal investigation, according to the news release, which did not list the amount of the fine.

The Houston-based company has also made a $55 million voluntary contribution to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. It was not a condition of the court agreement, the news release says.

The company said in a statement Thursday night that it had agreed to plead guilty "to one misdemeanor violation associated with the deletion of records created after the Macondo well incident, to pay the statutory maximum fine of $200,000 and to accept a term of three years probation."

The Justice Department has agreed it will not pursue further criminal prosecution of the company or its subsidiaries for any conduct arising from the 2010 spill, Halliburton's statement said, adding that federal officials have also "acknowledged the company's significant and valuable cooperation during the course of its investigation."

How the Bush administration let North Korea get nukes.
On Oct. 4, 2002, officials from the U.S. State Department flew to Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, and confronted Kim Jong-il's foreign ministry with evidence that Kim had acquired centrifuges for processing highly enriched uranium, which could be used for building nuclear weapons. To the Americans' surprise, the North Koreans conceded. It was an unsettling revelation, coming just as the Bush administration was gearing up for a confrontation with Iraq. This new threat wasn't imminent; processing uranium is a tedious task; Kim Jong-il was almost certainly years away from grinding enough of the stuff to make an atomic bomb.

The CIA provided a stream of accurate reports to the Reagan / Bush administration that Pakistan’s Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan was making nuclear weapons-grade uranium throughout the 1980’s. Reagan / Bush did absolutely nothing to stop it because Pakistani ISI was helping Usama bin Laden, al Qaeda, and Taliban to oust the Soviets out of Afghanistan. The Russians wanted to control Afghanistan for future oil and gas pipelines from the Caspian Sea Oil and Gas Region.

Now fast forward to October 2001, CIA questioned two senior Pakistani scientists Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood and Chaudry Abdul Majid and they said Pro-Taliban feelings extend beyond the Pakistani Army, the ISI, it is right into Pakistan’s nuclear-weapons laboratories. Dr. A.Q. Khan confessed that he helped with the Pakistani government assistance, to sell nuclear technology to Libya, North Korea, Iran, and Malaysia. These Pakistani nuclear scientists have close ties to radical Islamic terrorists groups.

George “Ignorant Iraqi Oil” Bush did not do anything about Pakistan’s government selling nuclear technology to Libya, North Korea, Iran, and Malaysia. The CIA had 100% proof of this and George “Incompetent” Bush came out publicly with the truth on October 16, 2002, only 5 days after the Congress voted for Military Force against Iraq. Ignorant Bush also sold F-16 aircraft to Pakistan.

Documentary Slams U.S. Companies Working in Iraq

He's tackled Wal-Mart and Fox News with his scathing documentaries. Now, filmmaker Robert Greenwald is releasing a documentary which argues that private companies helping to fight the war in Iraq don't have the nation's best interests in mind.
"Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers" debuts in limited release this week, and presents an assault on companies that provide the kinds of services in Iraq that the military once handled itself, such as supplying food, water and mail delivery for the reconstruction.
In the film, former KBR/Halliburton water purification specialist Ben Carter is interviewed and says when a motor went out on a truck, they would "buy a new truck … and bill the government."

White House knew there were no WMD: CIA

The CIA had evidence Iraq possessed no weapons of mass destruction six months before the 2003 US-led invasion but was ignored by a White House intent on ousting Saddam Hussein, a former senior CIA official said, according to CBS.
Tyler Drumheller, who headed CIA covert operations in Europe during the run-up to the Iraq war, said intelligence opposing administration claims of a WMD threat came from a top Iraqi official who provided the US spy agency with other credible information.
The source "told us that there were no active weapons of mass destruction programs," Drumheller said in a CBS interview to be aired on Sunday on the US network's 60 Minutes.

Bush 'approved intelligence leak'
US President George W Bush authorised the leak of classified material to the media to defend the invasion of Iraq, a former White House aide has testified. http://tinyurl.com/goxnd / 7 April 2006
The testimony, cited in court papers, comes from Lewis Libby, who is facing trial in connection with a separate leak involving a CIA agent's identity.
Mr Bush, who is not accused of allowing the agent's outing, is under pressure to say if he was behind any other leak.
He has in the past condemned leaks and has said he would sack anyone involved.
The White House has so far failed to comment on Mr Libby's testimony.

Have you wondered why the only injuries on TM were to his hands from hitting some thing? TM was no the one with a broken nose, cuts on his head and a wet back with grass clippings.
Here in Florida you do not have to wait until someone starts hitting you to defend yourself. And you can use deadly force it you are in a reasonable fear of serious bodily harm or death.
One small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch in size on TM’s left ring finger below the knuckle does not suggest anything Rogue, nor does the baby scratches on Z’s head suggest his life was threatened in any way.

If you’re suggesting it’s a fair proposition that a full grown man bring his nine to a kid’s fistfight even when the kid is spotting him 50 pounds and 12 years prime then so be it. I suppose next you’ll be saying the kid was a werewolf and no doubt had to be destroyed.
