Rudy had the incredible fore site to locate the Emergency command center directly across from the twin towers, against much warning, causing them to be evacuated and useless during the evacuation of the towers. He also made the decision to store thousands of gallons of diesel fuel in the same building causing it to burn and collapse. Hundreds of millions of dollars equipment were never used during 911 and went up in smoke along with the building.
I heard someone say on CNN that the rails were off because the low price of oil would cause domestic drilling to slow down causing shipments of pipes and such to slow. Blah, Blah, Blah... You would think the low price of oil will give the economy a tremendous boost in sectors like housing, travel , retail etc.
If oil keeps dropping like it is, the Keystone pipeline might just end up as a White Elephant, useless miles of pipe lying around because the tar sands oil won't be able to compete with cheap oil from Venezuela and Mexico. Besides if the pipeline is such a great idea, why didn't the Canadians allow a Canadian company to pipe it's oil to their Pacific coast? I guess they value their water and air a lot more than we do.
If rich people like the Waltons want to pay less in taxes, why not use some of their income to pay their workers a higher wage, health care and retirement, that way the rest of use wouldn't have to use our tax dollars to help their workers survive.
CSPAN is about the best, but the rest are like infomercials. Who needs to sit there and be manipulated like that. I can't stand watching commercials, and to me the cable news channels are like commercials for the political parties.
Anyone who pays attention to any cable news network has got to be a #$%$, I think that explains why FOX ratings are so high.
In any event, when the government uses power to redistribute wealth from the taxpayers upwardly to the elite why isn't that as onerous, to the conservatives, as some elderly Vet collecting welfare
39.5 billion in contracts to Cheney's former company Haliburton, many of them no bid. Even Rep. Rand Paul has accused Cheney of using 911 for the benefit of his former company, I guess you don't think there was any Quid pro Quo. Compared to Cheney,
Capone and Jesse James were petty thief's.
No, and it wasn't civilized when #$%$ Cheney and the Bush crime family used the Government to take us into a phony war to enrich themselves.
