Lockheed Martin will cut 4,000 more jobs as a result of defense spending cuts.
30,000 jobs have been lost over the past few years.
Defense spending is and has been the only federal spending that has actually provided something for the money. The country remains secure and employment remains higher. Old fashioned notions, I guess.
I guess it's better to shut down all military bases, shudder defense contractor's factories and spend the money on solar companies that provide affordable renewable energy and tons of new jobs.
I mean just look at the stellar results when we give money to companies like:
Evergreen Solar ($25 million)
Solyndra ($535 million)
Beacon Power ($43 million)
Nevada Geothermal ($98.5 million)
SunPower ($1.2 billion)
First Solar ($1.46 billion)
Babcock and Brown ($178 million)
EnerDelís subsidiary Ener1 ($118.5 million)
Amonix ($5.9 million)
Fisker Automotive ($529 million)
Abound Solar ($400 million)
A123 Systems ($279 million)
Willard and Kelsey Solar Group ($700,981)
Johnson Controls ($299 million)
Schneider Electric ($86 million)
Brightsource ($1.6 billion)
ECOtality ($126.2 million)
Raser Technologies ($33 million)
Energy Conversion Devices ($13.3 million)
Mountain Plaza, Inc.($2 million)
Olsenís Crop Service and Olsenís Mills Acquisition Company ($10 million)
Range Fuels ($80 million)
Thompson River Power ($6.5 million)
Stirling Energy Systems ($7 million)
Azure Dynamics ($5.4 million)
Vestas ($50 million)
LG Chemís subsidiary Compact Power ($151 million)
Nordic Windpower ($16 million)
Navistar ($39 million)
Satcon ($3 million)
Konarka Technologies Inc.($20 million)
Mascoma Corp.($100 million).
I sure am glad that we give the president and his political supporters all of our trust. They sure have earned it.
We should just understand that the administration should be held accountable none of this. They didn't know...
They didn't know about Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, NSA, the pervert Kevin Jennings as safe school czar, ZPG whack-job science czar John Holdren, etc., etc., etc.
The progressives at their finest.

Yes atleast mitt full of s-it is'nt in the White House now! 2trillion dollar navy 5 trillion more in tax bonuses for the exalted rich. All those sqeeling about Obama now are mainly those who did'nt complain at all about 2 trillion spent on a lost war in Iraq, 4200 Americans lost for no reason, 20000 injured many permenately, a piece of sh-t president who should be in Federal prison, and the list goes on and on. Come on repubs you gave us a lesson in coruption and now you wonder why your mitt lost. Your party continues to shatter and divide as we speak. Downright funny how republicans think all of us not on their sh-t wagon are l-i-b-e-r-a-l-s. Can't believe Stephanopolos had the biggest con,murderer,lier,cheat,thief, on TV recently. Notice how cheney looks more loke the devil everyday with the sharpness of his ears and nose, kinda of scary. Well I will never watch that sunday morning show again ever! It's great to see and hear these republicans moan and groan and bit-h about Obama like the rest of us had to do for 8 painful years and if your insurance rate is raised or canceled? Consider it punishment for supporting the worst pair of criminals who ever slithered into the WhiteHouse on their bellies 2001-2009.

You want me to use logic to defend against a lie you made up? You want to attribute words to me that I never said (or even came close to), and then accuse of not defending them well enough?
Tell you to F@ck-Off seems like pretty good logic to me, under those circumstances. Dumbasz.
Come on here with some honesty and reasonableness and we can have an entirely different conversation. Until then, bite me.

It's Bush's fault.
#31476 Nov 14, 2013
Obama will have no more press conferences. Instead, Jay Carney will just show this video:
#31477 Nov 14, 2013
Blah, blah, blah, it's Bush's fault, blah, blah, neo cons, blah, blah blah....
#31478 Nov 14, 2013
Whining, foul mouth progressive, with no ammunition.
#31479 Nov 14, 2013

We can hope that is true, but based on prior history, not so sure...
#31481 Nov 14, 2013
Blah, blah,blah... ad hominem
#31482 Nov 14, 2013
The problem with your reasoning is that it is retarded. Who has even suggested "Ö.to shut down all military bases, shudder defense contractor's factories and spend the money on solar companiesÖ"
Is there no in between with fools like yourself? It's, once again, an example of the black and white world of fanatics. It has got to be one or the other / black and white.

I say put someone in who upholds the Us. Constitution!! Freakin Constitutional severters!

From Washington Times April 2013:
President Obama is backtracking from his campaign promise that ďI donít think now is the timeĒ for another round of military base closures across the country.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Wednesday presented the $526 billion defense budget request for fiscal 2014, which explicitly calls for shutting down facilities in a process called Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC).
It's shuttering sorry for misleading you into a mis-spell.
The list of green companies, many of which are owned by obama supporters are either brankrupt or soon to be.
Let's give these people the health insurance business and more because they are such good managers.
And the czars? No comment? The scandals get no comment? This administration is a walking disaster.
Surely you can see that.

Some little birdie is passing gossip around, he's impotent in another area as well. I aint saying who..........
#31486 Nov 14, 2013
Well, I've been known to let a curse word slip from time to time. So sue me. Usually it only happens when I encounter stupidity of overwhelming magnitude, or a downright liar. Since you've managed to combine both of those - you get the words you deserve.
Try an honest conversation without being a moron and a liar, you'll get a whole different side of me. See how that works? You get to choose what kind of response you'll get from me.

Well, another TV and/or movie star "gets it":
#31488 Nov 14, 2013
It seems to be a pattern with this one and some of the others.
Sometimes I swear somebody turned a 4th-grade class loose in this thread just to test how long we'll bother to talk to them. It's some kind of bizarre experiment.
#31489 Nov 14, 2013
Awww, I see you have found a new God, the ant man. Well after Obama threw yall under the train, I dont blame you..........
#31490 Nov 14, 2013
That's a laugh coming from you. But then I understand, you just can't help it. Projecting is part and parcel with being a progressive along with calling good evil and evil good.
