    are already on their uppers.  45% of enlisted qualify for food stamps, others can't get them that need them.  The commissaries have been co-opted by big, brand corporations long ago and have price cutting strictures on them already. Base housing is privatized and falling in on itself while a property management corporation rakes it in. 40,000 personnel were cut in 2007 for no reason other than, well, they needed the money for who knows what.  More have been cut every year since due to sequester etc. VA cases take over a year to get through.  Medical care, on base or off is proprietary to Big Pharma. And please, get off the USAF's case, they aren't the only ones pimping their generals' wish list.  Did you all watch the bidding war for Boeing a few months ago?

    But everyone seems to think we can do security with drones and black ops teams....or are we still "against that" on DK?
