  •  Halliburton was an oil field company (0+ / 0-)

    started by a brilliant man - a chemist I believe, named Earl P. Halliburton.  He came up with some great patents that most involved oil field activities.  From his hard work and genius, Halliburton was established in Duncan, Oklahoma.  It was a cornerstone of the community, and provided jobs and lived the life of a decent corporate citizen.  

    Then it grew up to be a big monster, owned a bunch of subsidiaries, and the big boys screwed everyone they could on ground in Duncan, Oklahoma, moved out of this small town because big boys don't want offices in small towns.  I believe they moved to Houston, I am not sure.  

    However, it was always Earl's intent that this company be a pillar for the small town of Duncan, OK.

    And that, boys and girls, is the story of Halliburton in simplistic terms as I know it.  

    It gets on my nerves, and you know how I am about my nerves...
