"One final note. This guy [Edward Snowden] was making 200 thousand a year working for Booz Allen. Far more than what the government was paying him. The guys who went to the security company Blackwater in Iraq were making far more than they did for the military. So instead of paying these guys 50 or 100 thousand a year we paid Blackwater or Booz Allen to pay them 200 thousand. I'm thinking we aren't saving much money there.
But you just keep bitchin about some Walmart worker getting food stamps."

I'd point out, also, that in addition to paying a company to pay analysts twice what they'd be paid by the government, said company is still making a tidy profit.
