    we seem to be in a state of unending war, that they are simply transferring the business model.

    It's easy to imagine the powerpoint presentation:

    "Gentlemen, here is the total tax dollar pie.  The biggest sectors are ... we already have majority control of defence, and we are making great strides in the incarceration sector."

    GEO, which is traded on the New York Stock Exchange, is the nation’s second largest prison corporation and had more than $1 billion in revenue last year.

    "Our next targeted opportunity sector is edcuation.  We are currently taking in increasing amounts of tax-payer dollars/revenue from both the "non-profit" and profit groups testing groups."  

    For example, the Big 3 "non-profits," are operating at 2x time the profit of other non-profits, and with NCLB, the testing market has increased from $263 million in 1997 to to $400 million to $700 million.

    "Leveraging data from our testing efforts combined with our long term anti-union/Free Market Marketing, lobbying activies, and uber-conservative/Tea Party Movement campaigns, we are within striking distance of converting the public education system into a privitized charter school system.  BTW, Obama's choice of Duncan was an unexpected windfall, so we have moved up our expectations for majority take over in this sector by 2014."

    "Which brings us to considering which sector we should target next?  Public employee pension funds represent a significant untapped capital source and public envy is nearing the point making it ripe for privitization ... perhaps with a portion of Social Security ... please turn to page 16 in your handouts ...
