“With revolutions all across the Arab world, riots spreading through Europe, and the continued persistence of the economic downturn, it seems like everyone’s coming to the consensus that perhaps the situation has become so unthinkably bad that previously unthinkable solutions might be necessary. Government solutions to catastrophic economic collapse have rarely been neat or pretty, but at least in the past they tried to do something bold and mostly succeeded – as opposed to our modern Congress who apparently can’t even agree on the fact that they are responsible enough to spend any money.”
“So how about we propose a tiny, modest, infinitesimal alteration: just overthrow the whole f’n thing and start from scratch. After all, it’s the young, well educated millennials that are getting the hardest shaft from the downturn, and it’s the young, educated and unemployed who start revolutions.

The U.S. Air Force paid Lockheed Martin – the federal contractor that is first in funding, first in fraud, and principal beneficiary of the $1 trillion F-35 boondoggle that eclipsed their F-22 disaster – about 412 million taxpayer dollars each for their problem-plagued and now program-cancelled F-22 fighter jets. With some 170 [Cr|R]aptors still “in service” – but never once used in combat anywhere in the world – that’s over 70 billion taxpayer dollars paid to Lockheed for planes that have been absolutely useless militarily. And what did our Pentagon decide to do last week to remedy the situation? Why, GIVE LOCKHEED MARTIN ANOTHER $7.4 BILLION to “upgrade” their grounded F-22 fleet, of course!
