You do understand it is an Australian Company building these ships. Yes they are building them in the United States but two facts remain the same, not
that many people are directly employed domestically in Defense/Aerospace technologies and those companies that are in the Defense/Aerospace industry
would rather make the Pentagon wait 10 years for delivery of backordered equipment than open new plants or factories and hire workers.
Rosie the Riveter was a few life times ago my friend.
Two is that a with an 11 trillion dollar deficit everything that the Defense Department spends, which by the way should be renamed the Offense
Department, is in fact borrowed money that not only do we need to continue to pay interest on, (we are still paying off Rosie’s salary from 1943 by
the way) but produces no cyclical revenue for the economy.
Neither does NASA by the way. These are money holes, money goes in, and generates no future revenue. The same is true with almost all government
Cyclical industries take an investment and produce a real product that people (not just government workers) need, and create ongoing revenues and
Warships produce no revenue; the Space Shuttle doesn’t even produce enough revenue to fund itself.
Charmin toilet paper on the other hand, that’s a cyclical product, not only does it literally comes off a roll, people will keep buying it, and the
jobs it creates aren’t temporary but steady.
I can appreciate as someone employed by the government doing things but not producing things and taking revenue and not producing revenue you might
have a hard time dealing with these economic concepts and principles.
The Military Industrial Complex and the Associated Bankers that lend the money for these non-revenue producing items have literally and figuratively
bankrupted America financially, morally and obviously intellectually as well.
