Thread Name: BS: Dick Cheney and I
Subject: RE: BS: Dick Cheney and I
Don't forget, Donuel, Cheney has had the ability to manipulate that stock. Its unlikely that if you had invested in Halliburton, you would have the same power as Cheney. Thats the reason there are conflict of interest laws. Anyway you look at it, he has the power.

The decision is not whether you wish to invest ethically. If Cheney had ethical investments, they too would do well. He would make sure of that.

Anyone can choose to ride Cheney's coattails but whether or not that stock will stand the test of time is anybody's guess. Since most of the wealth is paper only, anything could happen and you can bet that if and when other stockholders lose, Cheney will not.

He is an unethical scoundrel and manipulator.
