Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Shipping was extra — a lot extra!

Iraq needed fuel. Halliburton Co. (the company that still pays Vice President Dick Cheney a yearly deferred salary) was ordered to get it there. So the Houston-based contractor charged US Tax Payers $27.5 million to ship $82,100 worth of cooking and heating fuel. And we paid the bill. Some of which ends up in Dick Cheney's pocket. Nice! Read the story from the Houston Chronicle here or another report here. Two Democratic Congressmen (Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., and Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich) have informed the public. The Bush Administration is angry that they did. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which had assigned Halliburton the job of getting fuel into Iraq, declined to comment on the substance of the audit report, noting that it contained confidential commercial information that had not been authorized for release outside government channels. It's a secret! We the Tax Payers aren't supposed to know. So just pay no attention to the man behind the curtain and pay your taxes that keep Dick Cheney and his wife in designer suits! This is what's wrong with the current administration. Too many secrets. Too many payoffs. And we're not supposed to know about it. Did you hear about this on the evening news controlled by one of the five huge corporations that control the news? No? I didn’t think so!
