ome observers see a conspiracy in the actions of the company once headed by Dick Cheney. Halliburton, which built the cement casing for the Deepwater Horizon’s drill, announced its purchase of Houston-based oilfield services company Boots and Coots for $240 million on April 9, just 11 days before the Deepwater Horizon explosion. According to a report at the Christian Science Monitor Friday, Boots and Coots is now under contract with BP to help with the oil spill. The company “focuses on oil spill prevention and blowout response,” CSM reports. Halliburton’s purchase is not yet a done deal — it’s still awaiting regulatory approval, though few observers think the purchase won’t pass muster.

God forbid we let the health of our one and only environment stand in the way of making more money. Especially when some of that money may very well go full circle and end up back in a politicians campaign coffer.

Drill the hell out of it! We also have great potential for wind turbines along our coasts, but for some reason this is not being taken seriously in the legislature.
