yes fuck yourself

Halliburton hypocrisy?
 
: Teresa profited when VP was CEO
By David R. GuarinoRead Guarino's Road to Boston BlogWednesday, July 21, 2004

As Sen. John F. Kerry's campaign escalates charges over energy giant Halliburton's government deals and ties to Vice President Dick Cheney, there's one thing they don't mention - the Kerry family's own Halliburton payday.
     Teresa Heinz Kerry liked the Cheney-run Halliburton enough to buy and sell more than a $250,000 in company stock in 1996, netting a tidy profit of up to $15,000, records show.
     The Kerry family Halliburton investment is tucked in the Massachusetts senator's lengthy financial disclosure forms, reviewed by the Herald.
     The records, which limit disclosure only to broad ranges, show one of the Heinz family trusts bought between $250,001 and $500,000 of Halliburton stock on May 13, 1996 - while Cheney was its CEO.

Are you saying that Mrs Heinz had control of Haliburton because of her relatively small (not small to you or I, heck that is 2 days beer money in mild weather) investment in the company? That's kinda hard to believe if ya ask me, In any event, I dont think there is a law preventing people from investing in companies.

And note that this was the Heinz family trust, not future President Kerry's (war hero/veteran/great american) wife. So if Saint Jude's Childrens hospital held Haliburton stock in it's portfolio for instance, that doesnt make Danny Thomas culpable (by the way, now would be a great time to donate to Saint Judes if you can, they do great work there and there is always a need,,, and note I have no idea if they even have a stock portfolio much less what is in it, I am just using them as an example)

someone needs to look up hypocrisy in the dictionary because i don't think it means what you think it means:

but lets get this straight...

kerry is a hypocrite because

kerry is escalating charges against halliburton/bush/cheney corruption and profiteering

while

his wife's family trust might profit from halliburton/bush/cheney corruption and profiteering

i believe this is the definition of PATRIOT. someone who does what is right for the country, REGARDLESS OF possible personal gain.
