I would gladly take a Stryker off the hands at a discount and parts to go with it to help get rid of some inventory.

To be honest this happens more than the military wants to admit.

There is always a way to turn these things on, the issue is if there is a change in staff or management then the "Turn it off" is a little harder. Not an excuse just a need to be a little more cognizant of what the hell is going on.

Want to save a lot of government spending? Fire all the Jerks in Washington….

Draft dodging = Bush Jr. too. I'd say he should also be put kicked out of the pasture.

As for the real cost of these wars, that won't show up for another 15-20 years when the vets start collecting on benefits. Then you can figure 2x the cost of the actual wars into the mix. Of course the country will be bankrupt...well MORE bankrupt... by then.

At least Bush server in the reserves. Clinton got a pardon from Carter to run for senate in Arkansas. People who served with the SS and worked at the white house said Bush was a class act and both clintons were scum bags.
