22. Ok, Mr. Panetta, pivot your weapons-tech/R&D and 'military manufacturing' contractors ...

... to work on infrastructure projects instead of building military shit we already have 1,000 of and don't use anymore. Contract them to hire local folk to build roads, bridges, schools, to expand communications corridors and high-speed rail, to plant trees and grass and work on greening the economy.

It can be done. It SHOULD be done.
