Profits, it would seem.

Biggest Government Contractors


Quote:According to Department of Defense documents, since 2001 contracts for services have increased 137%, compared to a 1% increase for payrolls of active duty military personnel over the same time period (in 2011 dollars), and is labeled as "increasingly unaffordable." However, among the largest government contractors are some of the largest companies in the country, some that employ more than 100,000 workers and draw a majority of their revenue from government sources.

To understand the spending involved, CNBC.com analyzed data from USASpending.gov, which was established in 2006 by the U.S. Office of Budget Management to make federal awards publicly available. According to the site, in FY2011 there were $536.8 billion in government contracts awarded to approximately 170,000 contractors. The data presented here are based solely on U.S. government contracts and do not include assistance, insurance, grants, loans or other forms of payment.
1. Lockheed Martin - Contracted in 2011: $39.98 billion - Total 2011 revenue: $46.30 billion

2. Boeing - Contracted in 2011: $21.45 billion - Total 2011 revenue: $68.73 billion

3. General Dynamics - Contracted in 2011: $19.47 billion - Total 2011 revenue: $32.67 billion

4. Raytheon - Contracted in 2011: $14.76 billion - Total 2011 revenue: $24.86 billion

5. United Technologies - Contracted in 2011: $7.90 billion - Total 2011 revenue: $58.2 billion

War Is A Racket...

Money well spent, I'm sure.

I'd like to know where Halliburton is on the list.

Once again the Eisinhower statement

Be aware of the Military / Congressional / Industrial Complex"

Once again,,, the stock Rog' Commentary:

" It is not a Country, it is NOT a Nation,,,, it is a Corporation "

You do not serve your country

you serve the Corporate Machine.

and when you are used up

you'll find,,,

"YOU" own no part of the Machine that ground you up

That's exactly right. It's all about who can seize the most resources. We are nothing more than tools.

1967
summer of Love

Speechers showed up ( Abbe Hoffman for one )

and the War Protesting got a Hard Kick Start.

Pres. Johnson say's: I can't get out of Nam, my friends are making too much money there"

Brookings got busy with ways to thwart the anti-war movement

just at the end,,,

Cocaine and Disco hit

No more movement

no more STOP The Machine
