Linin' dem pockets

In yet another halting speech (the man talks like a record with a scratch on it), Dumbya pledged the full support of the federal government to the citizens of New Orleans in the rebuilding efforts after Katrina. Now that he's finally there and has taken a look around, it's good to know that El Presidente holds a warm place in his heart for the people of the Cresent City. It's also heartwarming to see that he and his fellow cronies haven't forgotten their friends either.

Yep, seems the good folks at Halliburton Co. and Shaw Group Inc. have already snarfed up a bunch of the rebuilding contracts. Coincidence? Of course it is. Never let it be said that any company with close ties to government (i.e. they gave a lot of money) has been shown preferential treatment.

That would dishonest.

I'm sorry to hear that Halliburton is not making enough profit off the various wars we're conducting around the world. It's good to know they'll be able to pick up the slack with the killing they'll make in the Gulf Coast states.

Way to go, guys. And God bless America.

Dick Cheney rocks out to:

DJ? Acucrack - Killing Mobius
(hang onto your seats as the bass plummets)

Enduser - Comparing Paths
(battered jungle and breakcore madness)

Cranes - Loved
(strangely beautiful desperation)

Keane - Hopes And Fears
(floating, graceful and affecting)
