Money pit…

I’ll give credit to Boeing for actually identifying themselves on this “astro-turf”:

However, I would really rather see the money go toward something:

  1. That the government wants.
  2. That doesn’t create “regressive” jobs (ie: jobs that spread out the wages a bit as these tend to go to higher wage workers).
  3. That doesn’t involve helping us kill people.
  4. That actually benefits all of us a little more directly (eg: roads, schools, etc.).

Not that I want to see anyone lose their jobs, however this is just more sucking of the military teat (as if that slice of the pie isn’t big enough).
