Defense Bill? Really? We spend a lot of $$ on defense. What exactly are we defending besides the right to go anywhere on the planet and take anything for the benifit of the few?
Based on recent historical reality EPA and FDA (and the Defense Dept) work primarily for Big Business. They stopped protecting the majority some time ago in favor of future incomes for the already well-off. Does that mean they should be abolished?
Replacing top brass (in all areas of government) with qualified people (instead of political apointments) would be better, along with banning former 'employees' from lobbying on behalf of those 'we need protection from' for a specific amount of time after leaving any agency. Putting the law breakers and the corupt in jail would also go a long way. I'm still waiting to see some Wall-Street Execs in handcuffs. Now THAT would provide some protection to the majority, but will always anger some who think such actions are too intrusive on 'someones' personal rights (to rob us??).
