Be Careful Who You Criticize

If someone asked me about government employees I would have said that the last thing that they are afraid of is private companies, especially procurement officers. These are the people who buy stuff for the U.S. Government and since everyone wants to sell to this government, they wield enormous power.

However, today I learned in the Washington Post, that there is one company that wields more power than the U.S. Government. That company is Halliburton, which used to be run by the current V.P. of the U.S., Mr. Dick “Saddam Was Responsible For 9/11” Cheney.

The name of the official was Bunnatine H, Greenhouse. Sure, she had a funny name but that’s not why she was fired. She had “been a vocal critic of the Pentagon's decision to give Halliburton Co. a multibillion-dollar, no-bid contract for work in Iraq.”

The official reason for her removal was poor performance. There could be something to this. There could also be something to the Yeti that everyone keeps seeing in Nepal.
