Default $1.7 Billion for Marine 1?

Jeez these guys can **** away our tax dollars! and its not really even
American. Oh Sure, send some payola to Lockeed, GE, and Bell so you can put
a Made in America stamp on it, but do they really think we are _that_
stupid? What exactly is wrong with the S-92?

The problem for nationalists in this day and age is that very little is the
exclusive product of one country.
Even way back in the sixties I remember an ex-army friend rebuilding a
Norton bike only to discover they had sent him Russian bearings -"I didn't
spend the best years of my life defending us against the red menace... etc."
