Trillions of dollars missing from the DOD

An Original Essay

© By Drew A. Blanc - JKP

What the Hell is going on ?

I have questions -

1.) Where did the money go?

2.) Who's job/responsibility is it for over seeing this?

3.) Is there anyone we can trust to fix this mess?

4.) How could this happen without accountability?

5.) How much more money has gone missing?

6.) What about the checks and balances?

7.) Are other government agencies experiencing this too?

These are important questions.

Who can answer these?

Anybody -?

I have a theory and suspect – multiple bribes, payoff's, undisclosed contracts, strippers, hookers, booze. Their daughters $70K Mercedes Convertible, so she can attend the University of Texas and not have to walk to class with her fake boobs, artificial radiated tan and dyed blond hair - oh poor, poor thing.

Meanwhile, she's dating the quarterback of the UT football team. Whom himself, is destined to take over as CEO of a major Texas oil company (his father's company - of course) Which was actually started by his great grandfather who was an Irish immigrant and worked hard until he died.

Additionally, (unknown to the quarterback) she is also having sex with her girlfriends on the cheer-leading squad. The poor thing just can't find herself. She's bored and daddy's platinum American Express Card just can't buy her enough clothes and jewelry. She mixes another drink as her nose turns up at the illegal Mexican immigrant girl who is cleaning her $5000 a month condo for less than minimum wage.

I've personally seen this very same scenario.

Around and around it goes - Money begets money with a sense of entitlement and no conscience. The rich and elite live their lives with the expectation they are superior to the the rest of us knuckle-bones.

Case on point: Dominique Gaston Strauss Kahn sexual assault of Nafissatou Diallo. The French Bastard will probably get away with it.

There are actually people out there that believe that most trillions are being spent on "entitlement programs." What they think the so called "lazy bum on welfare" gets would be a drop in the bucket compared to the trillions that the trillionaires get. The big bankers, the oil and gas people, the Fortune 500s, Wall Street, AMA and the pharmeceuticals--this has gotten way too big for anyone to have the audacity to think that even the shrinking middle class is in any way responsible for the mess we are in, other than the fact that, if it is not already too late, the middle class had better wake up, pay attention, get involved and take our country back from all the wealthy thieves.

Why must we always blame the wealthy? Take a look at the politicians who have the power to take money from the middle class thru taxes, taxes and taxes. They also interfered with the housing market (which had always been a source of security for middle class) and what I don't get is they are rewarded with continued jobs in the field they helped to ruin. Would you be able to keep your job if you messed up causing such turmoil? I'm not into wealth distribution. We may have wealthy people who act like asses, but they don't tax me to oblivion. Lets put the blame where it squarely belongs and hold these politicians responsible by voting them out. And this includes our local politicians in our communities across this great country before we become slaves to the elite as history has shown us.

Sarah I agree with you wholeheartedly. Quoting the last of your comments, "before we become slaves to the elite as history has shown us,” is exactly my point. The wealthy control our politicians and rule our government. It's the wealthy and their greed that take jobs from Americans and outsource them to other countries, because they would rather die than pay a decent wage. You are also right in that these kinds of actions really affect the middle-class, and in turn all of American commerce. As the middle-class continues to shrink then the expanse between the rich and poor increases and it could result in feudalism and us returning back to the middle ages.

Reported to Congress by an independent panel, “The commission of wartime contracting.” They said this is due to wide spread corruption and faulty contracts – See link below – 3rd story -
