Bad news…our military is way too big and way too expensive….especially all those big fat private military contractors and especially in Fairfax county Va. Fairfax county is the richest country in the nation….because of the high price of outsourcing to very expensive defense contractors…..and yet they don’t make anything in Fairfax. Fairfax is 100% expensive white defense industry (welfare) overhead spending!

If you’re worried about budget cuts, don’t sign on to work for the government. Because that is an outfit where budget cuts are long overdue. If the Pentagon can’t get by on the fat it has…. somebody is skimming for themselves.
