: : : : "Defense" is another form of corporate welfare.
: : : Keep up the cheerleading for corporate welfare, Norman. You'll remind us of what's up.
: : "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?
: SDF: You really think they earned $700 for those toilet seats? Why don't you go up to their plants waving a fistful of your OWN dollar bills, if you're so afraid of foreign invasion? Make sure the executives get a few while you're at it.
This probably won't get a very intelligent response but here goes; Sam, could you tell us all what type of toilet seats these were? Were they the type that you see in a home? Were they made for only one specific location, requiring special machining and molds? Such as you may find aboard a larger military aircraft, a P3-C for example. Tell us what you know for sure about this.
