: "Corporate Welfare", another buzz-word, in this case applied to companies that design, test and develop weapons systems for national defense. Do you suggest that these companies not be compensated for their goods? Do you really want the people who work for McDonnel Douglas and Lockheed and General Dynamics to work for nothing? Isn't that a bit far-fetched even for you?
