    Looks like we may have another back door "supporter" of Husseins deadly regime...none other than Condi Rices Chevron Corporation. Another clear cut case of willful ignorance and corporate corruption by Republican con artists (those words practically go hand in hand).

    Boycott Coastal, Chevron, and Exxon. Buy Citgo.

    You got it. Now whats funny is that I thought this was old news. There were indications of this conflict of interst since the Volcker report came out years ago (04, IIRC). I guess the liberal :rolleyes: media were just too slow to pick up on it. Oh that and it was an election year and this type of news could have really hurt John Kerry ;) .

    Condi Rice is a scumbag.

    That story doesn't really say that Condoleeza Rice was involved in any criminal way. It only says she was on the politcal policy board till she because National Security Advisor. Furthermore, when Chevron was warned that the surcharges were prohibited by the OFF Program in 2001, and ignored that warning, Condoleeza was no longer with the company. I'm not a guilt by association type of guy, although that doesn't proclude me from thinking that their could have been some impropriety on her part. Anything is possible as we all know, and I always like to say that 70-80% of pols are evil or corrupt, but there isn't enough there to certify culpability or guilt.

    WTF... a perfect chance for the "cons" to defend themselves and they shy away like well...sheep without a shepherd. God bless the GOP.

    Defend this action.

    He said that doesnt make Condi culpable, and he's right.

    That said, he does what he does best and deflects the issue in the best possible light for the GOP.

    The real issue is the hypocrisy of those like you that insist FRANCE is evil because they dealt with Saddam, WHEN US OIL CORPORATIONS WERE DOING THE EXACT SAME THING.

    Now, I doubt you understand that, but people with independant minds, unadulterated by the right wing spin machine of Rush, O'Really, and Hannity, can see the double standard from your side pretty clearly I would guess.

    Oh, if you were trying to criticize US corps, count me as being onboard. No doubt they were paying the murdering regime like everybody else. They are as evil, and as guilty as anyone else involved. I'm with you there. It seemed to me though that you were trying to make the case that Condi Rice was somehow guilty of doing it.

    That is yet to be known. She is innocent until proven guilty on that. Shes still a neo-con and for that, a scumbag.

    How about telling us how you really feel? :D

    I think you let your emotions get the best of you sometimes Brown.

    Maybe, but IMO its better to be that than the braindead emotionless unengaged american idol-watching fat bodies that this nation is becoming plagued with.

    Oh, you mean that 30-40% I always talk about. I couldn't agree more. For the record, I've never watched a single American Idol show. Although I did see the YouTube of Sanjaya's (sp?) sister's mellon bounce :D . Now that's a nice peice of as....nevermind. :D

    Never let "principles" get in the way of a quick profit.

    Can anyone say "Halliburton"?
