One step ahead of "the man?"

Some breaking news from the New York Times -- apparently Halliburton, criminal Dick Cheney's former company, is moving its corporate headquarters to Dubai. Could it be that they might be a little worried about the future?

"The announcement about the Dubai move, which Halliburton made at a regional energy conference in Bahrain, comes at a time when the company is being investigated by the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission for allegations of improper dealings in Iraq, Kuwait and Nigeria. Halliburton has also paid out billions in settlements in asbestos litigation....
The move seemed to raise questions about whether Halliburton might gain tax advantages or other benefits from shifting into a foreign country with pro-business regulations."

I gotta give 'em credit -- they certainly don't lack for cojones.

By the way, the Washington Post ran the story, but failed to mention anything about the investigations.

Typical. They make billions ripping off the North American people and the world. Serve GI's in Iraq tainted food and water, destroy the environment and then decide to run off to a country with even more tax shelters than than the king chickenhawk has given them.

I really do wish there was a hell.

There is no pain these bastids could experience that would make up for the misery they've caused.
