Halliburton Just Keeps Rolling In Trouble.
Now why would I make such a statement? I'm nothing but a fence sitting investigative journalist with a brain the size of, well I won't get into that. Bear me out here. Halliburton, founded in 1919, is one of the world's largest providers of products and services to the energy industry. With more than 50,000 employees in approximately 70 countries. These are some of the terms Halliburton uses to describe some of the products it offers to it's customers. I'm quoting from their web site. "Long-Term CO2 Geosequestration." (What the hell does that mean?)Here`s another...."Improving openhole completions with inflow control devices and swellable zonal isolation...." Hey, I know this is referring to runny noses and how to stop it. So, why not just say that? One more then I'll get to the point of this blog. "Proactive breakthrough prevention." Oh, this one we all need. Our skin problems will be solved once and for all.
Okay. I do understand what Halliburton is saying but it is meant for the oil and gas industry and their CEO's. Who by the way, are involved with the Bush Dynasty. Gee. I forgot to mention this. Blog coming right up. Halliburton has a history of controversy and charges of conflict of interest. Halliburton merged some time ago with Dresser Industries, founded by Presidential father and grandfather, Prescott Bush. The former Vice-President, Dick Cheney, is a past CEO of Halliburton Industries. Ah you gotta be kidding? Good old Prescott? And son George H. W. Bush? Father of George W. Bush? And Finicky Dicky was his Vice Pres.? Holy cow. I'm starting to feel sick.
Following the preemptive attack on Iraq, initiated by the Bush administration, Halliburton was chosen to rebuild Baghdad and Iraq to undo the damage caused by American bombing and artillery fire. I think we are now aware of this fact. I mean why the Iraq war was started. But what the heck do I know. Halliburton had hoped to profit from immigration issues; they had plans to build detention centers, similar to those centers in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to detain non-documented aliens pending transfer back to their countries of origin. No big deal there. Oh yes. Founded by a Bush. War started by a Bush. War continued by a second Bush. Now I'm beginning to see the light and it looks like a green light. Or is that the color of money I see? Naw....
The Kuwaiti-owned Timimmi Company had been serving hot meals to troops stationed in Iraq for $3 a meal. The contract was reassigned to Halliburton, which raised the price to $5 a meal, subcontracted the meal services back to Timimmi, and kept the 40% difference. But isn't that part of the New World Order? Are you not supposed to make a profit in the United States as part of free enterprise? Wait a minute here. Halliburton isn't doing a damn thing yet they are billing the government and the taxpayers 40% for what? Where is George Bush? I want to talk to him. Anybody got his number? Next...
Remember this? How quickly we forget. George W. Bush made an effort, while the American Congress was on break, to transfer the nation's ports to Dubai, in the U.A.E. Dubai is a terrorist friendly region, indeed one of only two countries to recognize the Taliban as the rightful government in Afghanistan. After the transfer of the ports, Halliburton was to have taken over the operation, the running of the ports. Excuse me for a moment. "Where is the wash room? I'm going to be..... too late."
I'm through. What? Another mess for Halliburton? Oh this just keeps getting better all the time. The oil spill off the Gulf coast? That's right. Halliburton is involved with off-shore drilling. Yet another problem. "Halliburton was responsible for sealing with cement the oil extracting drill a mile below the Gulf surface. Halliburton employees completed cementing of the final production casing on the well about 20 hours before the explosion, the company said in an April 30 statement. The complaint says Halliburton "improperly and negligently performed these duties, increasing the pressure at the well and contributing to the fire, explosion and resulting oil spill." My God, this company can't even mix and put in place cement correctly. And Halliburton is an experienced, dedicated and environmentally conscious company? Buffalo Pucks. Just look at the legacy the Bush hierarchy has left the United States in? ( I just went there. It's across the hall from me.) The one dollar bill says "In God We Trust". What happened to that statement? I think more praying is needed and not in the continuing saga of the dynastys.
Now I'm though.
