    $737 million is peanuts. I'm a big picture kinda guy.

    Gotta run, time to toss Obama's salad some more.

    nope doesn't bother me. We should be investing in these technologies. People who know people get things done that's the way the world works. It will work that way 1000 years after Obama is gone.

    How do you propose stopping this ethically challenged behavior?


    Almost every ex-congressman and ever ex-Senator works for a lobbyist.

    Almost every ex-General ends up working for an arms manufacturer, often an arms manufacturer he/she endorsed to congress during procurement of that companyís goods.

    And donít kid yourself similar stuff occurred with Cabinet members in the Bush Administration.

    lol

    As a previous loan to a solar power company endorsed by BO becomes big news, and possibly a scandal, let's lend another billion to our pals just under the wire.

    seems legit




    lmao

    No.

    $737 Million is small. It means nothing. If it's under 500 Billion, it's not important to Government.

    Aaaaand Halliburton kept getting military contracts after it was fined for over charging the US government and after it was fined for selling oil drilling equipment to Saddam Husseinís Iraq and to Muammar Gaddafi's Libya.

    What is your point?

    so you're saying this doesn't bother you, and Halliburton's favored status during wartime didn't bother you as well I guess.

    of course it does.

    What is currently going on appears to be unethical and what Halliburton did in the case of Iraq was illegal. Neither of these things are good and or make me proud to be an American.

    But writing laws to stop unethical behavior is difficultthing to do.

    Gee, I wonder how many shares of Halliburton the Bush and Cheney families owned during the Bush administration?

    :rolleyes:

    A few points actually:

    -- America and its taxpayers actually received something tangible from Halliburton.

    -- The Clinton Administration used Halliburton.

    -- The Obama Adminstration continues to use Halliburton (no-bid contracts, as a matter of fact).



    You really need to up your game here. I understand how difficult it must be to try to ward off the ginormous growing tidal wave of indefensible garbage coming out of the Obama reign of error, but I give you points for trying.

    because Dems never do anything bad. if it looks bad, it was first done by Republicans, and now they're doing it to show us how wrong it was for Republicans to do it. got it?

    For starters, people like yourself can stop providing cover and making excuses and turning a blind eye to Obama and the rank amateur/criminal posse he brought with him to Washington.
