Did you know Enron Corporation donated $602,625 to the Bush Administration?
Did you know the CEO of Enron, Kenneth Lay, who Bush calls "Kenny Boy," has been indicted for taking Enron down and losing many of their workers' lifetime 401k?
Did you know the Pentagon announced two weeks ago Bush's military records have been accidentally destroyed?
Did you know National Guard service (unlike John Kerry who was active duty in Vietnam) was seen as a way for the privileged to avoid being drafted for Vietnam War duty? John Kerry had a privileged upbringing, but he didn't take the easy way out as Bush did.
In May 1972, Bush moved to Alabama to work on a political campaign and, he has said, to perform his Guard service there for a year. But other Guard officers have said they have no recollection of ever seeing him there.
The documents released on Friday by the Pentagon included two faded computerized payroll sheets showing Bush was not paid during the latter part of 1972 and offer no evidence to place Bush in Alabama during the latter part of 1972.
Did you know Halliburton is doing business in Iran? Iran, one of three countries Bush claims is 'part of the axis of evil,' is doing a lot of business with Cheney's favorite company, Halliburton
In a telephone press conference, Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) said he found it "unconscionable" that a Halliburton subsidiary appeared to be doing business with a country tied to terrorist activities at a time Cheney was Halliburton's chief executive.
Did you know Cheney approved of a $7 billion dollar no bid contract with Halliburton, which has already resulted in more than $100 million dollars of overcharges for services not delivered?
Some initial facts: As Halliburton's chairman and CEO, Cheney earned a $1.3 million salary, plus bonuses that varied from zero to $2 million during his five-year tenure. Cheney also accrued salary and stock options worth an estimated $45 million. [AP, July 26, 2000]
In addition, upon resigning from Halliburton to run with Bush in July, the 59-year-old Cheney received what amounted to a $20 million parting gift. Halliburton's board waived a requirement that Cheney would lose many of his stock options if he left before age 62. [NYT, Aug. 12, 2000]
Under the Halliburton deal, Cheney retained 400,000 unvested stock options that will "vest" in batches over the next three years. That means their value depends on Halliburton's stock price at the time the vested options are exercised. Essentially, Cheney will be aware that his personal wealth will rise and fall along with Halliburton's stock prices.
Do you know how much money Halliburton has overcharged for items costing American tax payers millions of dollars? Hey Republicans, do you even care? Or does everything the Chumpanzee and Dick "Oil Can" Cheney do is okay? Please let us know...
