Do they need another $2.7 billion to fix it?

Merivigian4701d ago

I know right? You can get huge beastly computers for a few thousand, if you can spend billions on a computer it can be almighty if done right, apparently they don't do research.

Oh Gee, no way!! Overpriced government spending on junk?
I'm sure this computer wasn't some "my buddy can get us a great system for cheap" deal.

It's a wonder this country is going bankrupt.

Yet we can't find money to pay for schools...

The sad thing is that the military budget is cheap in comparison to Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security.

BubbleSniper4701d ago

it might be cheap, but we have to start somewhere. lol. one has to wonder what "our money" is truly going towards
