In the event of immigration emergency? Are they completletly doped 
up? Or is this bogus program just a simple way to say thank you to 
Dick Chenney?
When I came back from Canada (where I went to pick up residence 
papers), the US boarder patrol told me that he saw many people with 
my kind of passport (refugee travel documents) recently: immigrants 
are *leaving* the US, not coming to it; Americans too: I saw two 
American families picking up Canadian papers as well...
And in Croatia, all the shipping agencies are overwhelmed with 
Croatian-Americans that are returning back.
I think that the US the immigrant invasion should be the last worry 
with Bush in White House...

*3. HALLIBURTON GETS DETENTION CONTRACT

KBR, the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton
Co., announced on Jan. 24 that the Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) has awarded KBR a five-year $385 million
"Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity" (IDIQ) contingency
contract to support ICE facilities in the event of an emergency.
The contract, effective immediately, provides for establishing
temporary detention and processing capabilities to expand
existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) facilities in
the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the US, or to
support the rapid development of new programs, KBR said. The
contract may also provide immigrant detention support to other
government organizations in the event of an immigration
emergency, the company said. The competitively awarded contract
will be executed by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth
District. KBR held the previous ICE contract from 2000 through
2005. [MarketWatch 1/24/06; Business Wire 1/24/06]

"Passive" ethnic cleansing of New Orleans almost over.

By waiting with evacuation of its poorest residents until the 
hurricane Katarina devastated the city, and by the sluggish 
rebuilding process, Bush administration may re-organize New Orleans 
from a majority black city to a majority white city, a jazz theme 
park...

Every war brings new technological breakthroughs. The war in Iraq 
brought us the stair-climbing wheelchair.

New York housing market is so out of whack, that landlords finally 
are unable to rent apartments, because there is not enough people 
around that make enough money to cover the sky-high rents. SO, they 
rent rooms separately to people. In this particularly inventive idea, 
a couple of architecture students rented a space above doors between 
two bedrooms, as another bed. It went cheap ($35/month) and fast. I 
am just pissed that I wasn't first to call.
