24. I really don't have a problem with flyovers...

And FWIW, B-2's forward base out of Guam as well as Diego Garcia. If you Google Earth DG, you can see the shelters they installed for them. And the one that crashed in Feb of 2008, happened in Guam;

It is the second of a two ship sortie;



No, what REALLY pisses me off these days about the spending we do on the military is the salaries and the net worth of the CEO's of the largest defense contractors. Jay L. Johnson, a former Admiral and recently retired from General Dynamics (the 5th largest defense contractor that makes exactly ONE product that you and I can buy without a DOD purchase order - Gulfstream Jets) has a net worth of well over $150,000,000 in just GD stock alone, ALL OF IT....every single penny as a result of the largesse of the American taxpayer.
Similar numbers for the head of Lockheed Martin.

If you are the head of a company that gets more than 75% of its revenue from military contracts, it should be illegal for you to make more than the president.
