It is a massive bailout, every year, dwarfing Detroit's one-time money grab. Gee, do you suppose Sowell ever mentions that?The Defense Department?

These are agencies that want your money, that you earned so they can have salaries and pensions--often after a career of just 20 years.No one in the private sector gets squat after 20 years. Fat and ossified lard and patronage.
