  •  it is ironic that the big bloated military budget (8+ / 0-)

    is the only real keynesian stimulus program that we have.

    It is of course one of the least efficient methods of doing it, but at least it's better than anything else we could pass through Congress.

      For the Military Industrial Complex to realize that their unlimited excesses have bankrupted this country and perverted our congress...

      We are hereby declaring that "Endless War is Over."

      They must now look to diversify beyond making swords for their survival rather than building unneeded weapons systems in order to keep their businesses open, rather than being a bloated parasite on the teat of our nation.

      They should instead look towards using their expertise in building things that will benefit the nation such as efficient mass transit systems, fuel cells for power for transportation, wind turbines for power generation, and above all working efficiently so that projects routinely come in under budget with better results than expected like every other profitable company in the world is expected to do...

      The other choice isn't their survival...
