Gag Me

Lest I talk about money lost, stolen, or just given away in Iraq.

In the run-up to the invasion one of the most senior officials in charge of procurement in the Pentagon objected to a contract potentially worth seven billion that was given to Halliburton, a Texan company, which used to be run by Dick Cheney before he became vice-president.

Unusually only Halliburton got to bid - and won.

Wow. Wotta shocker!

Porkie--I mean Georgie, may want to "pressure" Iran, no doubt in a desperate attempt to accomplish something not-entirely-evil during his highly regrettable White House tenure, but other sources suggest that his changes are slim-to-disappearing. He has lame duckness to deal with, along with his eight year legacy of general lameness and blinkered stupidity. Factor in his immoral war and, from what I've been reading, unsubtle attempts on the part of the gov'mint and cheney-affiliated oil companies to force Iraq to sign over control of their oil industry and--well, I don't know what you have, but certainly not a recipe for successful international diplomacy.

Maybe I'm imputing evil to the merely demonstrably stupid? Maybe it's just that the USofA's time has passed and Porkie the President was just lucky enough to be the one to push us over the edge?

I'm not sure I'm ready to get this up close and personal with my computer. I'm glad I don't use public internet cafes. Who wants to sit down to a computer that a thousand strangers have already caressed?

I'd guess that fresh water is the most precious liquid commodity on the planet.
I do make an effort not to waste the seemingly limitless supply that flows from my taps, and I want me one of these.

I don't use a lot of milk, not because I have anything against it, but because if I buy it, even in just a pint bottle, it always seems to have an expired freshness date by the time I get around to opening it. From now on, I'm going organic.

Even though I forgot to study, I made 65 countries in the "how many countries can you name in five minutes" game. I'm getting better informed!
