    12/12/2000 the day Democracy as we knew it ended in what was the late great Republic of the U.S. The GOP and it's candidate have since brought us to this sorry place where all power has been essentially been handed to a  King, Dictator, or Emperor take your pick and nobody not even the supposed opposition is doing a thing to protest. So this is how our Republic ends with a wimper and a sigh? Shame on all of these so called elected officals shame same same.

      Have you read the January 2006 press release on the Halliburton site?

      http://www.halliburton.com/...

      ARLINGTON, Virginia – KBR announced today that it has <snip> been awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to support the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities in the event of an emergency.

      The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to augment existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs.

      The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other U.S. Government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency, as well as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency, such as a natural disaster. In the event of a natural disaster, the contractor could be tasked with providing housing for ICE personnel performing law enforcement functions in support of relief efforts.
