Because you think they wouldn't game this? Corporations never collude or anything, right?
How is it a non-sequitur to point out previous expenses failures that they've been the head contractor for? Also, this is far from being their only IT-related disaster either. So again I ask: You've never worked with or for Lockheed have you? They can't properly finish projects in the same scope with costs many times this one.
As opposed to the same thing that happens developing commercial software? Changing requirements, scope creep, etc. is just par for the course in ALL software development.
Never worked for or with Lockheed, eh? Or maybe never heard of the F35?
How dare you bring facts into this. People on SSI are mooches living the highlife off of the backs of the hardworking. Rush Limbaugh said so so that's that.
That presumes it was ever there to begin with.
Yeah but first you need $200 million to lobby for the contracts.
Lockheed. Mentioned in the article.
Yeah and the welfare system was plagued by welfare queens. Oh wait that was just over dramatized fiction from Reagan. No different than your story. There are always people trying to cheat stuff but statistically it's not as large a group of people as right-wingers want us to believe.
The funniest part of your rants is the unfounded assumption that Lockheed is or ever was competent.
Especially since Lockheed has a history of these expensive blunders.
Rack had been used as an alteration of wrack since 1592 according to Merriam-Webster. You're a few hundred years late to the party.
Good luck funding it.
And why shouldn't they be blamed? These large contracting companies are largely incompetent. They get business by lobbying not competency.
It's a great move, but we're not done yet. ID Software released (at one time) the source to older titles. Why can't GOG do/push for that too? Or are they?
And what leverage do you think they hold over the game companies to make such a demand?
