Ahh, what an awesome revelation.

Isn't it great that as world economies plunge into the depths of the abyss, and that as world hunger, homelessness, and joblessness skyrockets, the military contractors just keep profiteering off their products of war and death.

And those of us that still have jobs get to pay for it all.

Glad we can keep your record profits going why we all struggle fellas. Keep the suffering going to keep your bank accounts stuffed.
