Poll question: Which "U.S." company Will Get The Ex-UAE Contracts?
Did I put that right? Anyway, here's the poll . . .

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. LOL! The most popular parlor game of the day!
It was interesting that the announcement used the term U.S. "entity", though. What exactly is an "entity" of the U.S.? :shrug:

4. I want to know WHY each State doesn't buy it's own port?
I heard something about a southern port being owned by the State and they were doing quite well. Making a 30% profit! So, why couldn't each of the 6 States with ports in this deal just buy them?

7. Carnival Cruise Lines.
This way they won't have to pay to park.

6. There are many NeoCon embedded companies that will be planning
to benefit from the "No Foreigners" furor that they created.

There will be a consortium and Halliburton will be included...

11. And since they are going to have the deal "forced" on them, tax
breaks and cash subsidies from Congress will have to be part of the package

12. I have a distinct feeling we have all been
set up. The media is going on and on about Republicans bucking the Bush WH. Do they really think that? Since I trust nothing that comes from this administration I wouldn't put it past them to have caused this mess on purpose. There is no bottom to the corruption barrel they are sitting on.
