    You don't give a **** about no bid contracts. You only give a **** that Halliburton got a no bid contract.

    Nevermind that Halliburton was on the only oilfield service company in the world that could handle the Iraq job, because it was going to take more than a 48 piece socket set to fix things over there and we didn't have a 6 month window to cut through all the red tape.
    You just earned that Halliburton Christmas card. Keep kissing up and you may even get a fruit basket as well. I hate to tell you what you may have to do for even more than that.

    btw - I am against the idea of no bid contracts - be they given to any party regular GOP or Dem.

    And besides, they give most of it to your darlings anyway.

    But when Walker and his supporters in the GOP lower and slash taxes thus cutting the states ability to function and push the state closer to default, that is perfectly fine in your book.

    Try to keep up, conservative, the public unions have already agreed with the governor on pay cuts. It's COLLECTIVE BARGAINING that is the issue and that includes a whole lot more than wages and benefits.

    Give me an example of a how a Union " telling people what they have to do with some of their money ".
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    And those shareholders get to decide where their money goes?
