Of all the activities the federal government engages in, I think Defense is the most legitimate and the most important. But, having said that, anyone should know that waste, fraud, and abuse suck away far too much money. We COULD spend a lot less and get just as much bang for the buck. But we’d have to make some smart decisions ... and we probably won’t.

One of my co-workers of 20 years duration decided to leave last August. He was "uneasy" about the future of DoD work, so he headed off to the safety of a bank job.

I wouldnt worry about it too much

it doesnt matter what it is or how important it is, seems like if you aint one of the major good 'ol boy posters they will just move it to the backroom closets right away anyway.

I posted one about radical islam infiltrating the Obama administration, it got about 20 replys in the first ten seconds and they hid it right away so why even bother, it seemed like big news to me, even came from a credible source [/cynical attitude]

I just enjoy hanging out here at FR talking to myself

With defense cuts coming, look for Chicago politics to be played:

Winner: Lockheed-Martin. This company is on the White House's good side, having agreed to delay layoff notices to employees ahead of the election.

Loser: Boeing. This company will be targeted by the administration and lose contracts for daring to stand against the unions.

The SR-71 and the U-2 were conceived, designed, tested and manufactured in one year. Lockheed did this because they kept the military out. I can also tell you that the contracts didn’t contain the ridiculous clauses about small business set asides, green regulations and other non-defense political clauses. We could operate the Pentagon with 30-40% less money if every Congressman didn’t get to diddle in every contract.
