"The twin enabler of the Washington, D.C. oligarchy, the Samson who holds up the pillars of corporate state, is the Pentagon. Indeed, the defense, offense and intelligence bubbles are near the popping point. Killeen, Texas is called out as a place where unemployment among the military and defense contractor class will increase, and that’s one of many across the country. But who really takes this seriously? I mean, it’s a big potential bubble, employing people in every Congressional district, and comprising one of our biggest export industries -- big war and a multitude of weapons. How could it pop?"
