They just got a service contract at Cherry Point, NC

Why, isn't that a remarkable coinky-dink?

So ... both Lock-Mart and the 0bama administration are criminal organizations.

RICO, anyone?

No mere citizen has standing in court.

I share your disgust with the legal system. However, there is a difference between a "citizen" and a "taxpayer." Moreover, "standing" depends on the legal question at issue.

Another thought occurs to me, and that is that Congress should legislate that no federal monies be spent to comply with this agreement; meaning, it is important to win the Senate as well as the Presidency.

It the GOP can hold the House and by some stroke of good fortune take back the Senate, would there be enough cajones between the two chambers to IMPEACH?

Let's ask the Speaker. Mr. Speaker? Sir?

Uh...I'll take that as a NO.

On the other hand, until they announce which programs are cut, and until they can be sure Obama isn’t going to win, what contractor is going to go against them? Obama has shown that he will use the naked power of government against his enemies.

Seems like if you don’t want your programs to be the ones on the chopping block, you better take the bribe and keep quiet.

Romney should make it clear to Lockheed that his DOJ will prosecute them.

Romney needs to bring this up during the debate.

Another fine example of how un-capitalistic the American economy is...at least to those of us who actually know what capitalism is.

Bottom line is, the story about the defense layoff notices is national news, therefore public notice has already been given.

You think everyone at Lockheed Martin isn’t thinking they just got a pink slip....

This President is sophomoric, no offense to sophomores.

I got nailed on Friday, 28 Sept, after 15 years for the same defense contractor. It’s going to get really bad, for many. I saw it coming, and freshened up my skills, and expect to not be out too long, but am prepared for almost anything.

With all the scrutiny of the DCAA, DCMA, GAO, and the DoD IG, I certainly would not offer that advice to a Government contractor. Records are dutifully kept and are open to audit by any number of Government organizations and the ultimate fine is when you the contractor is disbarred. Doesn't go down too well with your stockholders when you have ONE CUSTOMER and he can no longer award you contracts. I worked too many years in this environment and it makes no difference who is in the WH - the "contracting with the US Govt" rule books are stacked from the floor to the ceiling and one better stay on the straight and narrow if one hopes for future work. The whistle blower statutes are in place and then there is always Qui Tam (where even the littlest peon can share in the spoils).
