Corruption from the Military-Industrial-Complex! Boeing, Northrup-Grumman, Lockheed Martin among 37 Corporations Defrauding the DoD!

The U.S. Deficit was born and was raised in the Middle East. While much of the Republican Talk the last 2 years had been focused on curbing spending that goes to the poor, the sick, the downtrodden and the casualties of Capitalism, Mega-Multinaltional Corporations have received Trillions of dollars.

Besides the 10 Trillion Dollars allocated, over the last 10 years, to the Department of Defense for the Phony GWoT, guess what else the Corporations tied into the MIC have been doing? Rampantly defrauding the US Taxpayer. Fraud is a nice high-falutin' word for Theft.
Hundreds of defense contractors that defrauded the U.S. military received more than $1.1 trillion in Pentagon contracts during the past decade, according to a Department of Defense report prepared for Sen. Bernie Sanders. He called the report "shocking."

He said aggressive steps must be taken to ensure taxpayer dollars aren't wasted. "The ugly truth is that virtually all of the major defense contractors in this country for years have been engaged in systemic fraudulent behavior, while receiving hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer money," said Sanders. "With the country running a nearly $15 trillion national debt, my goal is to provide as much transparency as possible about what is happening with taxpayer money."
37 Corporations received $1.1 Trillion Dollars in Corporate Welfare, aka Defense Contracts. But, that's not enough for these cheats and swindlers as these companies have all committed Theft on a scale usually reserved for Wall Street Bankers.

Since 2000, Boeing has paid at least $644 Million Dollars to settle Fraud complaints. Remember how Republican scum buckets Nikki Haley and Jim DeMint cried about poor poor Boeing being targeted by mean old Obama! Did you ever wonder why Boeing ran to the Republican Party to defend them when Boeing tried to undercut American workers? It's because these Corporations are the biggest thieves in History and they couldn't get away with it without the Guards of the System looking out for them.

It's long past the time, when Liberals and #OWS, recognize that our current Economic System has long been rigged to Transfer Wealth to a small Elite whilst simultaneously driving millions into Wage Slavery.

The 99% know that Capitalism is a sham and isn't working for them. But, despite the rhetoric about sunlight being best to defeat corruption, merely exposing the truth is not enough, the 1% and their rabid dog Republican defenders will NEVER surrender the enormous power and vast ill-gotten wealth their have seized.

We must be prepared to #Occupy for the long haul, we must be prepared to suffer preposterous lies, smears, arrests, and eventually Conservative Terrorist Attacks because while the Elite and their Right Wing Guards are prepared to do their worst, We the 99% must be prepared to do our best!
