Good Example Of The Oxymoron-'Military Intelligence'

"This Map Shows Why The F-35 Has Turned Into A Trillion-Dollar Fiasco"

National debt: 1B to 2.9 Tr

Military spend: 190B to 340B

FICA: 6.65 to 7.51

Top tx rate: 70 to 29 (plus a set amt)

Cap gains tx: 15.9 to 22.9?

Unemployment : 7.6 to 5.3

GDP: 3211 to 5658

Inflation: 10.3 to 4.8

Is any of that disputable?
