The pentagon wants to order 71 more F35's instead of reducing this by the same number,what should be the case. Bloomberg news just announced that.
Hoeray!!! We get sequestration (dangerous airspace and huge delays because of air traffic control cut backs and loss of plenty of teachers etc.) but they (the Pentagon) get even more useless toys, (does not help the economy; nor any return on investment) which can not even fight or prevent pressure cookers from blowing up. What a government; who is in control? Only the ones who want WWIII?
Why is n't there a huge protest; these useless planes cost more than 100 million a piece (according to Jamesn; may be even double that amount)
by not ordering these; we do not need these things hopefully for a long time, if we stop our war mongers, involvement in small disputes all over and stop our all over "drone" activity (that creates the hate against us). Start for a change looking at what internally is going on in this country and fix it instead of trying to fix other countries. It is laughable that we can not fix our schools, infrastructure etc. but instead we tell others how to do it.
Sorry to say is Obama in charge or the Pentagon or Locheed Martin? Where are the brains???????
