Thread Name: BS: Dick Cheney and I
Subject: BS: Dick Cheney and I
Back in Oct. 2004 Dick Cheney had $241,000 and change invested in Halliburton in the form of stock options.
Today that $241K is worth over 8 million dollars with the new unbid Katrina and Rita contracts.

I invested $420K in a cash real estate transaction back in Oct. 2004.
If I had bought preferred Halliburton stock back in 2004 I would have a sum of nearly 14 million dollars.

I did not invest in Halliburton because of the immorality regarding war profiteering.

At this point I am afraid that I made the wrong choice at least as far as the econmoic security of my family and friends is concerned. Maybe if you were presented with those circumstances you might find there is a little Dick Cheney in you as well.
