Well I suppose by a broad definition yes. But if I'm remembering correctly most of their military contracts were handled by KBR which Halliburton is not affiliated with anymore.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

Here are some bad sheep answers:

Sikorsky
Flashback


Northrup Grumman
Pharoh


KBR
Nick Danger

Here is a really bad answer

Lockheed Grumman
wendersfan

This is the Abraham Jefferson question that gave me so much trouble. Lockheed I would have grouped with Lockheed Martin; Grumman I would have grouped with Northrup Grumman. But Lockheed Grumman? That's just wrong.

I don't think Halliburton will be the best sheep answer.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

people are upset about whether Haliburton is a defense contractor or not but there is no debate about whether a judge on television is also judge on the federal bench? Apparently, a sheep answer can be anything and count as long as many people said it. I did not know that.

No love for the company that builds the battleships and aircraft carriers.

You didn't read the rules? Or follow any of the dozens of games we've had?

It has to be Lockheed or Boeing, right? Or Halliburton.

I assume that when Lockheed merges with Grumman the game will be re-scored.

there are no wrong answers in sheep questions (at least not for this game).

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

But speaking of Lockhead Martin, it was a pretty good answer:

JasonF
Venusian
Tommy Ceez
Lunatikk
gmanca

Equally good was:

Boeing
Thor Simpson
Mordred
the big train
Red Dog
LurkerDan


Blackwater wasn't quite as good an answer
