it sure didnt go to infrastructure
and it sure didnt go to defense
did it all go for gunnrunning to mexico and Syria ?
foreign hedge fund investors ?
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.
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
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.
Romancing the Drones
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 didnt 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 didnt get to diddle in every contract.
