More then the next 18 countries combined.... including our next biggest threat (according to Romney) China!!!!
Don't get me wrong I made a lot of earnings off the defense industry....but seriously it is ridiculous. I could tell you stories but than I would have to kill you....
Everyone knows all the budget are bloated. Nobody wants theirs cut.

During the Civil War, businessmen from NYC raced home from Washingtn DC exclaiming that anybody can sell anything to the government and at any price. Abe Lincoln started the income tax to help pay for it all.

How much of Boeing's business is defense related?

From a revenue stand point it has been pretty much split between Defense and Commercial. However Boeing hss significantly upped it's deliveries on the commercial side as well as begun a serious reduction in costs on it's defense side. I saw an internal memo from an old collegue still there. I want to say some 10 billion anually from the defense operations side. Mostly through management realignments etc. So I think Boeing is seeing the future and preparing well for it.

More serious might be the 787 issues lately. Not good....

Don't forget they got the last big defense contract in the tanker. And I think they are positioned very good to win the Presidential Helicopter contract. Unfortunately that will not be as big as the Tanker deal.

On Monday, though, Politico's Dylan Byers got an early look at the latest ratings report from Arbitron:
The conservative radio host's ratings fell 27 percent in the key 25-54 demo in New York City, 31 percent in Houston-Galveston, 40 percent in Seattle-Tacoma, and 35 percent in Jacksonville, according to a selection of the March 29-April 25 Arbitron ratings provided by an industry source.
Rush Limbaugh's Audience May Be Much Smaller Than You Think
http://articles.businessinsider.com/2012-03-1...
"Premiere Radio Networks, Limbaugh's national syndicator, estimated last year that 3.59 million people were in Limbaugh's audience during an average quarter-hour of his program, based on a review of Arbitron's piecemeal data about hundreds of stations."
By my math 311 million Americans vs 3.6 million listeners 0.011% for 15 minutes mind you.....
He has .01% of the total whack job right wing nuts in the country. WOOO HOOO!
IRREVERENT........
Got any info on his competition?

Does he have any real competition on the radio while he's on air?

He has gotten boring since he can't really hear anymore. He still lambasted the Obama administration over Benghazi. I'm sure Fidel would have arrested him if he had been broadcasting anti Fidel shows in Cuba. Obama takes the Alinsky approach instead and useful idiots like you chime in like hyenas.

A classic story was the ex navy guy who sent phony invoices to the US Navy for fictitious ship repairs. He got millions of dollars from the Pentagon and he was only caught because he sent in an invoice for repairs to a ship that the Navy had retired before he claimed that he did his work.

2,200+ Limbaugh Sponsors - Gone!

Sponsor contact is working!
The StopRush Project has announced that over 2,200 sponsors have pulled ads from Limbaugh's show, via documented messages/statements. Many other sponsors have left his show quietly, bringing the actual amount of sponsors who have left, to a higher, unknown total.

Daily Kos diaries, this Petition, FlushRush, The StopRush Project and numerous other activist groups, are causing an immense impact on the demise of Limbaugh's hate-filled show. One of our new Daily Kos diarists, ProgLegs, just posted this diary yesterday, and it's already going viral: http://www.dailykos.com/ ...

We can all join the Fight to Flush Rush. This Petition goes out to 40 sponsors at a time and lists the StopRush and FlushRush groups: http://www.change.org/ ...

Eric Bolling: Schools ‘pushing the liberal agenda’ by teaching algebra

“But even worse is the way some textbooks are pushing the liberal agenda,” the Fox News host explained, pointing to an algebra worksheet that Scholastic says gives students “[i]nsight into the distributive property as it applies to multiplication.”

“Distribute the wealth!” Bolling exclaimed, reading the worksheet.“Distribute the wealth with the lovely rich girl with a big ole bag of money, handing some money out.”

Co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle explained that the algebra worksheet had put her on “high alert” for the liberal agenda in her 6-year-old son’s curriculum.

If people actually watch this and believe it...WOW the "distributive property" of wealth? If this is the case well holy shit I could seriously turn Math into a win win. In fact I could probably take some algorithms and really send them down a path. They would look like the ignorant A holes they are but what's great they wouldn't know it till the internet get's a hold of it. My guess anyone running FOX is just as dumb ass as they are....

I get judged and you well not so much??? Perhaps you fall for that last post of mine? Ever have a math class? Ever have a class past freshman year of HS? Perhaps you can post your CV? I will be willing to debate you on here anytime. Let me know when you have gotten past name calling and want to debate facts and issues. Now don't pull a Mittens on me it's the internet and we all know where that got him. I and most educated people I know and work with stopped name calling in elementary school.

Not one of your better posts DingleBrain.

First of all, FoxNews might be on to something. Second of all, how many kids actually look at their algegra books for more than a few minutes each week?

Third, the folks at FoxNews have better ratings than their competitors. There is a reason for that. They are outsmarting them.

So, what's bringing this on DingleBrain? Perhaps you are too self absorbed? Who's judging you? Math classes? I took senior level math classes in college thru differential equations, along with senior level physics courses in mechanics and electricity/magnetism. I had algebra in 8th grade. I liked it and did very well in it. I loved solving equations using factoring.

You sound like you belong back in elementary school, so have a good day DingleBrain.

At least Reverend Wright was telling him the truth about you people! I'll bet he's thankful for that insight today. God knows it has stregthen him in the face of all these nut cases who refuse to work with him because they are not "comfortable" with a black man with that much power. As long as someone is kissing up and give the old white boys club the feeling that THEY are running things it's fine. Obama is not your flunky nor is he a fool. He's his owm man. That is why WE The PEOPLE elected him. We wanted a change!

Don try to lay all the lies on him. BUSH...yes, the one you don't want to blame is the one who got this country in the mess it's in. But some of you people would rather not "go there." No. You'd rather try to put all this crap off on the current president. Why is that? He's not working fast enough for you? and tell me ....Who do you think you are?

I think if some of you Republicans had an ounce of decency and honesty, you'd check yourselves and your attitudes towards Barack Obama. Really be truthful with yourselves and stop being followers of the Liars. Read what the president says, LOOK at what he's doing for the people, LISTEN to the debates with an open mind. COVER your eyes if it helps you to be unbiased. Pretend he's a WHITE guy if that helps. Whatever you need to do in order that you may hear and see...just do it. If you're honest with yourselves I know that you will support the president who won the election by a land slide! The president who has World support. If you want America to move forward...let's just do the damn thing!
