Northrop Grumman wins $80B defense contract. Someone in the airforce is tickled to death right now

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/northrop-grumman-wins-80-billion-contract-to-build-long-range-bomber-2015-10-27

I imagine which ever general has been pushing for this is as giddy as a 7 year old on christmas eve. He probably couldn't sleep last night he was so anxious to unwrap his new present.

1. 80 Billion, now!

By the time the first aircraft is ready for flight tests...that 80 billion will have ballooned to 160 billion, and will only go up from there!


Another MIC rip off of tax payers dollars, just like the F35!!!

2. Yeah. The future president of Northrop Grumman.

Not that Boeing doesn't hire its share of generals.

3. Eh.. I doubt president. Member of the board more likely

 

And I'm sure they are already paying him (some how)

4. We should nationalize the defense industry.

There should be no profit in war.
