show me where Hal is making billions? you think they're getting crazy margins? if they take a billion dollar construction contract, they're on the hook for getting a billion dollars in construction done in a war zone. a) it's not fun work, b) it's dangerous, and c) even if you get things done on time, on budget, and make a 4 or 5% profit, some terrorist is likely to come and screw things up for you, meaning you have to start all over again.
I love when people that have no idea about how business works go on and on about big companies getting big tax breaks or war profiteering.
I'd like to know if there are any numbers for the profits of Hal? Or is this more baseless accusations that certain head-in-the-sand folks like to spout?
it's dangerous work that needs to be done by trained professionals. There are 2 or 3 countries in the world qualified to make a reputable bid on these jobs. I'd rather see these contracts going to American companies creating American jobs, than going to the Arabs, or French, or other global conglomerates.
But capitalism is EVIL and big corporations are EVIL and if anybody gets paid a billion dollars to do anything, they must be EVIL! I love the logic here.
