      Good Morning to you too @bobcat. It looks as though my post disappeared so I am not sure what my infraction was. Yes, having to separate letters like that is a total waste of time. I did LOVE your joke.

    Years ago Chiquita paid protection money to narco terrorists so plantations wouldn't be attacked.
    Rumors of bribed paid to African governments for energy and mineral rights have swirled for years.
    The simple price of win at any cost mentality.
    Doesn't matter if, or how walmart is penalized.They already own the market in Mexico

    Bs. While rumors of Halliburon officials bribing Nigerian officials did circulate for years, Halliburton has TWICE been convicted. These bribery charges related to the Walmart corporation known as 'Walmex' cover bribes made from 2006-2011. Many hope this dosn't interfere with Walmart's plans to lay-off all their cashiers once their RFID systems are installed, and hope Walmart in China doesn't follow suit. Bribery is punishable with death in China.

    @@@bombo if there was an awesome restaurant called the wildrose would you go in and eat? Names are just names,,,,thats all but i do see your view on it! It does sound a little funky LOL

      You bet I would, and I do know where the name comes from. The wild rose is the official flower/ plant of Alberta. But it still seems like a weird name for a political party, especially an ultra-conservative one.

  10. True Joke

    This American man walks into Iran over 50 years ago with 3 million US dollars in his pocket. A few weeks later the anti-western government is overthrown by the pro-western government. That man was the world's first 'Economic Hitman', and he was also fmr. president Teddy Roodevelt's grandson.
    The author of the book "Confessions of an Economic Hitman', himself a former NSA agent (the NSA directs the CIA) was on CNBC this morning explaining EXACTLY how and why US corporations and secret agents bribe foreigners. Read this book and come to know rather than coming to wonder.

    Re- bribes in third world countries, I do see your point, but you know what the alternative is, don't you? Don't do business there. Then lots of ordinary people are out of work. I don't like it either, but in some places that is part of the cost of doing business.

    Leeintulsa. Yep. I was just getting to know him a little bit. He and I were tangled-up on something or another when I learned he had died. Huh. I don't even recall what it was about. I was looking forward to getting to know him. However far 'know' goes here. So it's not worth a lot for me to say I miss him, but I do. I miss Protoman and Tomcat...I even miss Whitekong 78. Another man down. (not to mention I'm about the only one here who believes that it's quite possible Lee will be seen right here on earth again)

    Leeintulsa was here as long as I have been.
    I have no doubt I shall see him again.
    That is all.
