Someone Has to Do the Work

by Aurther Saturday, Apr. 26, 2003 at 4:03 AM

Might as well be American and Coalition Countries to handle the reconstruction work, they paid the price up front in blood and $$. Unlike FRance which would rather give Saddam Blow Job and Ass Reaming. It will also put a lot of Iraqis back to work.

Serco

by Jo Monday, Apr. 28, 2003 at 6:52 AM
wildthing@burntmail.com

Serco also runs Britain's nuclear weapons research and development facility, Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) Aldermaston and you can find out more about them and the New Generation nuke factory they're building at Aldermaston on the AWPC (Aldermaston Women's Peace Campaign) website - haven't got the address to hand but type in AWPC and Aldermaston or Falcongate and it should pop up. Serco's AGM is coming up so might be worth getting hold of a share if you want to go along and ask them some questions about their behaviour in Bradford's schools.

For those who think the contracts issue is a sideline, why? Surely it's clear that, with the mobile phone contracts tendered out before the war even started, there's an issue over corporations which have an influence in the government and have a huge profit to make out of the war being somewhat undemocratic.

I was there when the war started as an independent observer and saw what the war meant for countless Iraqis,. Those I spoke to openly said they wanted rid of Saddam but wanted to do it themselves, and didn't want invading by the US. After I left, some Belgian doctors I met there, who were working in the hospitals, e mailed to say while the troops were protected oil fields and the Oil Ministry, they not only stood by while the hospital was looted but even shot at civilian ambulances going to and from the hospital, in one case hitting an already injured patient with a further bullet in the chest.

That and the contracts point to the same thing and it isn't liberation of the Iraqi people.

How to find work in Iraq

by Susie Dow Monday, Jun. 09, 2003 at 5:42 AM
blogistonpost@yahoo.com

Since compiling the initial list of reconstruction contracts in Iraq, we have received inquiries on how to find information on job and business opportunities in Iraq. A common complaint is how difficult it is to find out where to start. Unfortunately, the US Govt has not made it as simple as they could have by posting all of the relevant information on one web site. Small businesses unfamilliar with navigating the bidding process are at a disadvantage when contracts are bundled.

As a courtesy for those looking, below is a list of some of the links that might prove helpful for researching information. Visit the websites for more details before calling or sending an email. Please be sure to read all of the related regulations, restrictions and requirements posted at these sites.

Most "lefties" have jobs. In fact, I bet a higher percentage of "lefties" are employed than are "righties." For example, among the "lefties", more women are in the workforce than among the "righties."

That aside, why the hell would a lefty want to work for a corporation occupying a foreign country? I realize that rightwingers are essentially whores willing to do ANYTHING for money. Most lefties are not whores.

Excerpt from USACE: The total NTE amount for the March 8 Implementation Contract is, as of 13 June 2003, $213,786,000. The TO amounts may incrementally increase or decrease. For example: if not all the money put against TO3, for example, is needed and the cost rises for TO5, the extra money in TO3 may be shifted. Even the NTE amount may change if work is increased or if additional funding is provided.

I own Haliburton.

by Eric Sunday, Jun. 22, 2003 at 1:34 PM

Bought 200shares about a year back, right after they lost their asbestos lawsuit. Their stock price dropped like a stone from $26 to $8 (I got in at $10).

It's trading at $25 now. Wish I'd have bought 10,000 shares.

Stock

by p-b Sunday, Jun. 22, 2003 at 1:58 PM

The irony is your own tax dollars are paying to keep Halliburton a float. (Unless of course you also maintain offshore accounts to avoid paying taxes) So while you may be making money with your Halliburton stock, those profits are being generated by your own taxes.

Taxes? Not!

by IRS Sunday, Jun. 22, 2003 at 2:23 PM

Eric,
These people here don't pay taxes. Most of them are unemployed or work menial jobs, the rest are too righteous to pay taxes. Remember, they are (self-)important warriors, about to overturn the country you and I love. They aren't about to fund their enemy.

Thanks for the info

by Eric Sunday, Jun. 22, 2003 at 2:33 PM

I'm sure than most of them haven't filed a 1040 in decades, if ever. Sad really, that America's greatest strength, is also it's greatest weakness. The machine requires much green grease to function, and can only do so as long as those such as myself (the taxpayer) continue to believe enough in her to provide the lube. But I would give half of every penny I might ever earn to her if it was deemed necessary. Freedom means more to me than life itself. Certainly more than cash...

and another thing

by Eric Sunday, Jun. 22, 2003 at 4:39 PM

I like to go on this board and tell everyone how I dont mind paying taxes (even if I have to work the first 5 months of the year for free).
If there were a Democrat in office though, I would be fucking pissed!!!
But hell, i dont mind if my money goes to finance some oil war and keep the rich fatcats wealthy.
If they think they can pull a fast one though,
and use the money for Americans (like welfare, schools, government programs etc) they are fucking crazy!!!!!
I only want my taxes to go for warfare and killing!!!

Tax and wage war

No problem Eric. 54 cents of every one of your tax dollars now goes to the Pentagon.

Bush wants more Money!!!

Bush is requesting billions of dollars to rebuild Iraq, while America is falling deeper & deeper in to debt. He should worry about hi problems closer to home before he goes out and try's to make the world a "better place".
