Just awful

Gulf Coast slaves
Halliburton and its subcontractors hired hundreds of undocumented Latino workers to clean up after Katrina -- only to mistreat them and throw them out without pay.

This story makes me want to just throw up. How do you GOP Jews defend this latest instance of incompetance and immorality on the Dear Leader's watch?

Excuses/Justifications I expect to hear from the GOP-Jews:

1 - What's good for Haliburton is good for America.

2 - I don't understand. The Torah permits slavery.

3 - You know, Clinton had sex with an intern.

4 - Slavery? It's not slavery if no one gets beaten.

5 - Haliburton isn't responsible for the business practices of its subcontractors.

6 - The originalists owned slaves too.

7 - Come now. If we'd given that any money to that Mexican worker he'd have just sent it home. How does that help the economy?

8 - 9/11 9/11 9/11 9/11 9/11 9/11 9/11 9/11 9/11 9/11 9/11!
