Getting insanely rich off of American taxpayer dollars. This should be criminal! Bush/Cheney are laughing all the way to the bank!

I LOVE Haliburton. They are able to do what no other company in the world can. Besides, they REALLY piss off the anti-American types.

You people know absolutely nothing about Halliburton except what the media feeds you. Halliburton/KBR does do what no other company can do. What other co. could deploy 50,000 civilian workers to the middle east on almost a moments notice to support the US troops. And, as far as getting rich, you would be surprised to know the the profit margin on the entire operation is under 10%. Do you think your home builder made ONLY 10% off the sale of your house? Your car dealer? Things you buy everyday? Wake up people - dont be sheep.

I still don't see why HAL moved it's HQ to Dubai.
Kind of an anti-American move, wasn't it?
I am not a big fan of that move, but it's understandable why a company would search out the best way to do business.

There are some things, logistics, etc. that haliburton can do that no other company has the resources and expertise to pull off.

The current approach Republicans have on economic issues are more Darwinian in theory. They promote a system of A free market place where the strong survive and the feeble parish........The democrats approach on economic issues more resemble the teachings of Jesus Christ than Charles Darwin.

Some day, probably after you graduate middle school and get your anger issues under control, you may say something that could be considered intelligent. Until then, you really should STFU.

Go back to stepping on baby chicks, or something similar, will ya? I don't really care if you want to continue to stalk me, but it is pretty gay.

Nah, the liberal approach is more like Robin Hood - steal from the butcher, baer and candle stick maker, and give it to slackers who do nothing.

Love to see a little punk@$$ b!tch like you try to make me STFU. And sorry to disappoint you but I'm not a closeted gay Republican like Sen. Craig, so just go back to hanging out at a public restroom and if you get really desperate, go fvck yourself.

Do you identify more with the plight of the cold blooded realists, or disappointed Idealists?

The male and female brain will continue to battle for dominance in this pornographic chess game we call life..........
