I'm sick of working for the defence industry! I work for General Dynamics at Bath Iron Works. We build the best state of the art Aegis Destroyers. Where would I go from Here? I want to be a War Profiteer. I want to put my meeger amount of saved money into Halliburton stock now! I don't care what the disrespectfull Left think about Bush. I HATE him.

Peter is in the US. Here, it is also acceptible, and I think more common, to spell it "meager".

Yes! Let's get back to the real issue. I want to feed off this immoral war and get every penney that is due me for investing in this shameless endeavour! I love money and I don't care if Hundreds of thousands of innocent people get blown up in the process!

Absolutely go for it; you will be much more well-respected by the average unthinking citizen than you are now in your current incarnation as a weak-willed sob-sister bleeding heart.

You won't be expected to pay taxes, either ~ your fellow fat cats know how to make sure there are always enough loopholes in the tax code for themselves and their fellow exploiters.

There are probably ways a person can get rich while making a positive contribution to the human race, but the most of the best proven methods for aggrandizing oneself involve victimizing as many of your fellow humans as you possibly can. Might as well go all the way, take things to their logical conclusion, and make your profits by killing and maiming whoever stands in your way ~ it's a time-honored tradition!

Peter:

I have just left the Mil-Ind Complex after ten long years in SW systems engineering; the air is much fresher outside. Take a pay cut and go to work for someone who builds schooners or lobster traps; believe me, you will be much the happier for it!! I know I am.

So good to hear that you are happily employed, Amos. I thought you previously worked for a company like Titan or Halliburton. Sounds like your old job didn't quite jive with your personal convictions. Glad to know that someone actually stives for right livelihood.

I think its pretty odd politics when war profiteers and Christians both stand behind a guy like Bush. I can understand that war profiteers have no morals but I don't understand how Christians for Bush can claim the moral high ground.

It always feels good to listen to your heart. Anyway, good luck to you.

A scientist with morals meagre
Though he sang all the songs of Pete Seeger

Cos to make bread, I really am eager

Poppagator commented:

there are always enough loopholes in the tax code for themselves and their fellow exploiters.

A "loophole" in the tax code is sometimes seen as a mistake, a glitch, a "bug" in the program, as it were, of which some people take illegitimate advantage.

But I am reminded to the programmer's saying, "That ain't a bug, that's a feature!"

I am a marked man. I can't turn back. I will not stand for what the party lacks. You know I used to be a fisherman. I used to haul the nets by hand. I used to ply my trade with no regrets.

You can do pretty well right now selling anti-Bush T-shirts and bumper stickers. Dunno whether you could rightly call that war profiteering or not.

But it's a volatile market and you have to be able to spot the next craze ahead of the pack.

Right now, you can't miss with Bush but how long will it last? Ask the folks who put everything into John Kerry winning. Ya gotta stay ahead of the curve.

Good luck.

Other than the stock market the entry level war profiteer usually just exports full metal jacket ammunition to an African nation. Just hide the bullets under a shipment of guns.
