I didn't click on it. Still, though, it's a semi-truthful ad. It suggests that the primary purpose of the F22 is to protect aerospace jobs ... while I'd say that's probably more like the tertiary purpose. The real primary purpose is to secure corporate profits for Lock-Mart, Boeing, etc.; running a close second in the "purpose" race is the purchase of votes for Congresscreatures based on their success in delivering the bacon related to this thing.
Even so ... if we're determined to try to get out of a depression by borrowing vast sums, or printing them -- and good luck to us with that! -- maybe we could, you know, build sewers and wastewater treatment plants, or move our electric power lines and phone lines and so forth underground as a grownup country would, or ... even digging giant holes and then filling them back up again (rinse and repeat) at least doesn' kill other people. It just seems to me that the very worst possible welfare job is the one that builds insanely expensive death-and-destruction machines suitable for fighting enemies that pretty much don't exist right now. Although, just give our supervisors time on that last thing ... they're making enemies of every kind for us, just as fast as they can.
