    Y'all know "Kellog, Brown & Root" as the subsidiary of "Halliburton" that was paid to construct detention camps in America. Lookee what else I learned about "KB&R":

    "KB&R "and its welfare mama, "Halliburton", were paid -billions- by our federal government, for services during the now-realized-as-stupid war in Iraq. "Boston Globe" reporter, Farah Stockman wrote that mother and child have: "avoided paying hundreds of millions of dollars in federal Medicare and Social Security taxes by hiring workers through shell companies based in this tropical tax haven." (Cayman Islands)

    Yup. In 2008, "KB&R" listed 10,500 Americans as being employed by two companies that, "exist in a computer file on the fourth floor of a building on a palm-studded boulevard here in the Caribbean."

    Such workers cannot get unemployment when laid off. And they didn't. "KB&R" got Americans who were educated in American schools, without having to pay taxes for those schools. Etc.

    Trump knows the Iraq war was either stupid or a major "Halliburton" scam, or both. Will Trump take these multi-national corporations and make them kiss the flag?

    In 2008, 83 of the largest publicly traded companies had subsidiaries in tax havens.
    74 of these 83 got government contracts
    GM got more than $517 million taxpayer dollars, while shielding profits in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.
    Boeing got over $23 billion in federal contracts in 2008, yet had 38 subsidiaries in tax havens including 6 in Bermuda

    All the above is from the Government Accountability Office, a government agency.
