willfullyobscure: My honest opinion is that the DoD should slash its giant boondoggles like ships and subs and that retarded jet plane and triple spending on research and civilian infrastructure instead. Stop lining Boeing's pockets and build us some roads, bridges and science fictiony nanotech stuff and put it all in the public domain
