GUEST,rarelamb BS: Halliburton owns the U.S. government (143* d) RE: BS: Halliburton owns the U.S. government 30 Sep 05

Ha! Inconceivable :)

Well i've tried. I think we are at an impass.

For my part, I have :
1 Proven that no matter what happens to Hali, Cheney will neither lose money nor make money.

2 Without consideration there is no conflict of interest.

No one has proven 1 wrong.

For the oppositon has:

1. Been unable to prove that Cheney benefits when Hali makes money

2. puts forward the arguement that when Cheney leaves office, he will then get his benefits by getting a plum job with Hali. Therefore any legislation that helps oil companies today will be proof of a conflict of interest if he works for them in the future.

Let me first say that, 'Minority Report' was only a movie. It is absurd in the least to be crucifying a guy for what you think he might do in the future.

Second, by your standard every single congressman, senator, president and vice-president would have to recuse themselves from every piece of legislation that deals with any potential field they may enter after elected office.

Conspiracies are a poor substitute for logic and empiricism.
