    So this is the right wing's wet dream. A nation bought and sold by the highest bidders.

    I don't understand why we pay contractors MORE money than it would cost us for the military to do the job itself.

    All contracting is, is a way for management to take a slice of the workers pie and give it to management. Look at private run prisons. They don't maintain the infrastructure with a 40 year lifespan in mind. Their contract is up in 10. So no reason to invest for those 30 years you might not be working there, is there?
    So, who gets that money? Management? Who ultimately will have to pay for the maintenance, at a much higher repair instead of maintenance cost? Taxpayers.


    On January 2,2008, Staff Sergeant Ryan Maseth was electrocuted while taking a shower in his living quarters in the Radwaniyah Palace Complex in Baghdad. According to a memorandum issued by the Army Criminal Investigative Division, Staff Sergeant Maseth’s death was due to improper grounding of the electric water pump which supplied water to the building’s pipes.

    until it is determined officially that a law was broken, no law was broken.
