Lou Lou Lou You know I didn't think the trading with Iran comment was germane to this so I left it off. But since we're now talking about it I guess Rich found himself in some good company. I seem to recall something called Iran-Contra From http://www.fas.org/irp/offdocs/walsh/execsum.htm In October and November 1986, two secret U.S. Government operations were publicly exposed, potentially implicating Reagan Administration officials in illegal activities. These operations were the provision of assistance to the military activities of the Nicaraguan contra rebels during an October 1984 to October 1986 prohibition on such aid, and the sale of U.S. arms to Iran in contravention of stated U.S. policy and in possible violation of arms-export controls. In late November 1986, Reagan Administration officials announced that some of the proceeds from the sale of U.S. arms to Iran had been diverted to the contras. Of course shit like that, trading with Iran, doesn't happen these days, or does it. From http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6982444/site/newsweek/ Updated: 6:10 p.m. ET Feb. 16, 2005 Feb. 16 - Only weeks before Halliburton made headlines by announcing it was pulling out of Iran—a nation George W. Bush has labeled part of the “axis of evil”—the Texas-based oil services firm quietly signed a major new business deal to help develop Tehran’s natural gas fields. Halliburton’s new Iran contract, moreover, appears to suggest a far closer connection with the country’s hard-line government than the firm has ever acknowledged. [SNIP] Remind me again who the CEO of Halliburton was a few years ago. Funny thing, I just got finished watching the History Channels mini series called The Presidents on my DVR. Nice roundup of pertinent facts and accomplishments of the Presidents, as well as their scandals. The thing is that the Republic always rebounds, and I expect the same to happen once these cocksuckers are voted out. So dont you worry about me losing any sleep over the criminal misdeeds of the current administration, I laugh my ass off at each new indictment and disclosure of these scumbags and wait for history to repeat itself.
