I would not have a problem if we knew how to use them. What I hate are the constant orwellian wars to support taxpayer welfare for the corporations.

The tea baggers will clean up the military. So, party on, cause your time is short.

Military spending creates American jobs, generates corporate wealth, pays back the government in taxes, and provides technology and education that carry over to other segments of the economy.

It's social programs that waste vast sums of money, fail to create jobs, fail to create national wealth, lack productivity, and perpetuate poverty.

"pledge of America" describes a government that is too involved in peoples daily lives and spends trillions of dollars and is bloated, sounds like the military unfortunately its just a political ploy but the repubs.

See Haliburton on evading taxes and not submitting records, and stealing from the government.

Selling weapons to other countries that we go to war with, does not cheapen cost for Americans, in fact it costs billions of dollars to go to war, in addition to American causalities.

Again, how to way pay for WAR we raise taxes, things donít change even when we are no longer a colony. Maybe the Tea party has something to stand forÖ

Imagine, a government supported program that actually returns a tangible asset and gives your new grads somewhere to work.

Her ya go again!, Give-me, give-me, I graduated in 1962 from a vocational school, at the graduation, we graduating students were told to go out and start businesses, NOT, look for a job, but creat a job!!!

Everyone is under the impression that they should work for someone, get in a corporation, etc...
Government/corporations are a crippler, not an encourager, stay off of the corporate-teet, for once attached, you'll never wean yourself off of the perks....

So you think the US would be better off buying their advance fighters from China or Russia while the majority of Americans strive to be uneducated street vendors? There's more than one path in life. Get over yourself.

when the military orders new aircraft the over-riding reason in most cases is the retiring of prior aircraft!! however i would present a new reason that presently exists!! this administration has promised troops - weapons - missle shield - and other asundry items - oh - i forgot to mention aircraft with the sole purpose of assuming the duties of protection to the country of saudi arabia!!--
