Halliburton Out - Freeport McMoRan In
If you hear any Liberal say the word Halliburton one more time, punch him/her in the face!
Freeport-McMoRan (PTF) should be the only company to be awarded ANY contracts coming out of the Katrina disaster. Why? There are only three companies on the planet that can build nations: Halliburton, Bechtel and Freeport McMoRan.
Now you don't hear about PTF. Why, it's not politically attached to anyone in the Bush Administration. It will be. Why? It's based in New Orleans. That's right. It's in New Orleans, friends.
There has been a cacophonous cry from those in LA and the press to allow only LA contractors to rebuild New Orleans. There is no other company better suited than PTF. Now, PTF is not only an excavation and mining company. It builds nations. It builds roads, houses, infrastructure, energy plants, etc. It's a fantastic company, solvent, forward thinking, and as mentioned above one of the only players that can bring the kind of muscle it will take to rebuild LA and MS.
Take a look at the Board of Directors. Pretty impressive: http://www.fcx.com/inrl/brdmgmt.htm
Here the link to PTF: http://www.fcx.com/aboutus/co-overvw.htm
If W is looking to get the Halliburton Monkey off of his back, award all contracts to FTP as soon as possible.
BTW - I thought the speech tonight was horrible. I hated it. It was flat, empty and full of Great Society messages that I don't think W will be able to deliver. Maybe FTP will save the day!
In any case, you can also use your own domain name if you want to get one. (Typepad doesn't register domain names so you have to go to someone who does that. I used godaddy.com. They are pretty cheap. I think for two year plus pricacy etc, it cost me around 30 bucks.
I just started in July with them. I like them so well, I went all the way tp pro level where you have complete control over templates and unlimited authors.
I don't get anything from them if you sign up with them. Shop around, there are a bunch of sites and options, both free and pay. If you are serious about having a blog, I'd lose blogger.
I looked around for a month and decided upon typepad. What the heck, the first month is free.
I keep my blogger blog because it makes it easier for me to lave comments. All it does now is offer a link to my typepad blog.
If you have any other questions, let me know, I'll try to help. I'm a novice at this as well.
by the way, Haloscan offers a free commenting service that does allow IP blocking as well as editing and deleting.
And don't let whiny lefties try to claim that by blocking them you are a coward. There is an organized campaign underfoot in the lefty caves to flood conservative blogs with all kinds of crap.
I usually let them have their say and if they are not too disruptive, they can stay. But when you have four or five rising from the gates of hell to do little but scare away your good readers, I lower the boom.
As for the speech, I thought it was just fine. Would be nice to do a social experiement with a city like New Orleans. But unless we can pry the Dems hands off control of the thing it will be a lefty boondoggle and the resulting mess will be blamed on who???
(Then let PTF or Freeport MacMoRan rebuild the infrastructure.)
And as for the speech ... I'm sick and tired of the administration and the spineless right bowing before the left wing "media gods." Correct me if I'm wrong, but did W take responsibility for generations of failing on the left and its' inability to correct the "social inequities" that have been so sorely evident in NO? He should have taken the opportunity to call a spade a spade (no pun intended) and sent the left into a tailspin by pointing out the abject disgrace that the left's ideology created in NO. Undoubtly, the red states, and those of us red voters in the blue states, would have come away from the speech with more respect for him.
So I am glad I didn't see it, Bush is taking blame where he should not have to, but I am sure his adviser's told him it would be a good move to get the Cry baby's and lefty's off his back a bit.
Now.....FYI I am origanally from the Mid west around Chicago, but I married a Cajun, so that is why I am down here in LA now just a couple hours from NO.
I am going to cut to the chase because what I have seen down here would take for ever to tell you!
And this post would be a mile long,
But I can tell you this,
It is not going to matter who rebuilds NO, Blanco and the "Good Ole Boys" she is a Puppet for are going to Skim the Crap out of what ever money that comes in!
In fact there are some that say Edwards is still in charge of LA politics from his cell.
The Chicago Mafia ( that doesn't exist ) could take lessons from these GOOD OLE BOYS down here!
And you can bet Nagin will get a little taste too!
But you won't hear about that!
After all VP. Cheney's former company has already been awarded several no bid contracts in the area. Who does this serve?
