I stumbled upon this doing some research about Foxconn, and what I read was staggering. First of all Foxconn has more employees then all the worlds armies except for China, and India.

The DOF employs 3.2 million. Those are huge numbers!

F is next to the D key?

And this is a surprise?

Besides soldiers you gotta think about everything that a Department of Defense may do to support 4 branches of the Military.

And something else to ponder. Those are just the ones they tell us about.
I'm sure there's more who are employed secretly or in roundabout way so as to not leave a trail.
That number is probably a low ball estimate.

So much money, time and effort spent towards military/war/death it just makes me sad. If we spent half that on renewable energy and education the entire human race could evolve dramatically and we could put our efforts into proper space travel.



Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, NOT ONE HUMAN BEING EXCLUDED, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.

1% of the entire country is employed by the DOD? Holy Cow.

There's 330 million people in the U.S.

That's nearly 1% of the population.

Where's the panic?

Not so shocking when you consider how much of our GDP goes towards military and defense spending along with the fact that we are in a perpetual war economy. We are doomed to die by the sword because that is what we are living by.

So why does the millitary take up 49% of total tax recopts to pay for this 1% or put another way $2.4bn per day.

The sums don't add up but when you have zionist bankers pulling the strings and owning the banking system then this is what you have to exspect.

Time to use some nukes up and bomb USrale if you ask me.

I personally know of many many DOD employees that are basically useless. They give them a paycheck and tell them they are doing a job when in reality, their employer (contract pvt or govt) is just keeping them occupied with busy work. A large part of our economic problems are these people.
