Halliburton hired for storm cleanup
The Houston Chronicle ^ | Sept. 1, 2005 | The Houston Chronicle

Posted on 09/02/2005 6:17:31 PM PDT by Conservative Firster

The Navy has hired Houston-based Halliburton Co. to restore electric power, repair roofs and remove debris at three naval facilities in Mississippi damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Halliburton subsidiary KBR will also perform damage assessments at other naval installations in New Orleans as soon as it is safe to do so.

KBR was assigned the work under a "construction capabilities" contract awarded in 2004 after a competitive bidding process. The company is not involved in the Army Corps of Engineers' effort to repair New Orleans' levees.

Oh no! Haliburtin caused Katrine to make Cheney rich. Watch for the headline in the MSM.

Uh oh... Halliburton. I bet they made this hurricane just to get the cleanup.

Well, now we know it was Bush/Cheeny fault.
Bucks are going to Haliburton. Doesn't matter that they know how to employ and perform. No, no, no.

Only that they do not contribute to unions or the DNC.

Aha! This proves the Bush/Cheney/Rove nexus created hurricane Katrina! Those zany liberals have been right all along.

Hey, it was Halliburton technology that steered that hurricane into this region to bump off the minorities. Might as well reward them with a contract.

Attention DUmmies: This is sarcasm. OK? Before you report this to Dan Rather or the NY Times as fact.

Gee you think they would get the contract to tear down the levees so the racist Northerner's could finally destroy that french city and avenge General Butler. Query is the House of the Rising Sun underwater?

No, the Russians did! Didn't you know that they now have the capability to creat a hurricane and direct it to anywhere in the world?! (No kidding, there's actually some nutjob out there who believes that!)

Boo-hoo...why didn't this contract go to a minority company, they'll whine. Because it would wind up like the NO evacuation, of course. Halliburton is cursed by being the best in their field, and the lefties HATE excellence because it's so undemocratic!

(whisper): Halliburton....oil....hurricanes....

As soon as I saw the first photos of the damage, I asked myself, Who's got the supplies, manpower, and infrastructure capabilities to fix this? Ding, ding, ding! Halliburton.

This is hugh for liberals with nothing to do. The left-twing blogs should be all over the story by now--if they've moved past the cannibalism stuff.

As I have asked many a liberal when they start talking about Haliburton.

Whom would you recommend?

Haliburton is the best at what they do, and better then anyone else.

Their closest competitor is a french company....which has ties to Victor Bout.

Oh no! Haliburtin caused Katrine to make Cheney rich. Watch for the headline in the MSM.

I talked to my brother, back in Iowa, yesterday, Of course the disaster in NO was the first topic. Then I asked what price gas was back there, told him what it was here, etc.

I said something along the lines of, "this is going to mess up half the country for a bit.."...

His reply was, "Yea, this plays right into Bush and Halliburton's hand, doesn't it?" Told him he was still an idiot and hung up.

I'm ashamed that my own flesh and blood are so ignorant.

There's a reason why C2C is on so late.

Wasn't there a Hurricane Boris? What about Hurricane Mikhail Gorbachev? Does that ring any bells?

Here comes the mantra from the moonbats:

"Bush didn't sign Kyoto (ignoring, of course, the fact that the Sentate didn't ratify it in the first place) so that there would be more hurricanes. Eventually one of them would hit New Orleans, cause a levee break and wipe out the City so that Halliburton could get the contract. And the refineries would be wiped out so Bush's oil friends could get rich."

I'd think this was sarcasm if I hadn't heard that idiot Civil Rights advocate Guyot telling O'Reilly tonight that if you were going to arrest looters for stealing TV's you should also arrest the police for stealing medicines and bringing them to the hospitals.

The left has hit bottom and continues to dig.

Nah I think Halliburton should go through a lengthy 3 or 4 month bidding process for the government contract to rebuild New Orleans. Isn't it one of the leftwing mantras that Halliburton's no bid contracts are evil?

And don't forget, they should perform an exhaustive environmental impact study before proceeding.
