“There are some who’ve forgotten why we have a military. It’s not to promote war; it’s to be prepared for peace.” Ronald Reagan 1984

In another brilliant move, Obama yesterday killed the production of the US Air Force's finest fighter, the F-22.
Obama and Democrats were quick to point out that this resulted in a savings of 1.75 billion dollars.
Sounds like a lot, no?
NO, it's not! 1.75 billion amounts to one third of one percent of the military budget for 2010.
There was no mention of the number of jobs lost at Lockheed/Boeing and supporting manufacturers.
