TAKE ACTION on Nomination of Elena Kagan to Supreme Court

Members, 

If you have any desire to protect marriage between a man and a woman, don’t hold your breath for Congress to do anything about it. This issue will undoubtedly be resolved in theU.S. Supreme Court

That is why it is CRITICALLY IMPORTANT that we stand together now to oppose the nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. She is an activist who supports the homosexual agenda. 

Please take action by clicking on this link, which will take you to the website for the National Organization for Marriage.

>Obama Will Slash Military Spending, Cut U.S. Military Might

Is Lockheed Martin Losing Its Aeronautics Business?
You be the judge. It is not possible for President Obama to accomplish his twin goals of spending greater amounts of money for social programs and at the same time paying for two wars abroad and government-made infrastructure jobs here at home.
He has promised medical insurance for all Americans, a plan to save Social Security, and other social programs and helping the poor non-whites while not increasing taxes for those making under $250,000. . . at the same time maintaining our military might. Something has to break.

Could it be that with the Obama election almost a sure thing clear back in September, Lockeed saw into the future, knowing that Obama would bring home the military from Iraq before his self-imposed 16-month deadline and would start diverting most of the saved $12 billion a month to social programs?

Maybe one year does not make a trend, but net sales for Aeronautics at Lockheed Martin decreased by 5% for the fourth quarter and 7% for the year ended December 31, 2008 from the comparable 2007 periods.

.

In the quarter, decreases in Combat Aircraft more than offset an increase in Other Aeronautics Programs and Air Mobility. The decrease in Combat Aircraft was due to lower volume on F-16 and F-22 programs, which more than offset an increase in F-35 volume.

The Lockeed annual report saidThe increase in Other Aeronautics Programs mainly was due to higher volume in sustainment services activities. The increase in Air Mobility mainly was due to higher volume on C-130 support activities. There were three C-130J deliveries in both the fourth quarter of 2008 and the fourth quarter of 2007. During the year, decreases in Combat Aircraft and Air Mobility more than offset increases in Other Aeronautics Programs. The decrease in Combat Aircraft was due to lower volume on F-16, F-22 and F-35 programs. The decrease in Air Mobility primarily was due to lower volume on other air mobility programs. There were 12 C-130J deliveries in both 2008 and 2007. The increase in Other Aeronautics Programs mainly was due to higher volume in sustainment services activities.

Operating profit decreased by 4% for the quarter and 3% for the year ended December 31, 2008 from the comparable 2007 periods. But company president Bob Stevens said that during the quarter, operating profit declines in Combat Aircraft more than offset increases in Air Mobility and Other Aeronautics Programs. In Combat Aircraft, the decrease mainly was due to lower volume and the decline in 2008 of the amount of favorable inception-to-date performance adjustments recognized on the F-22 program, which more than offset improved performance on F-16 programs.

The increase in Air Mobility primarily was due to higher volume and improved performance on C-130 support activities. The increase in Other Aeronautics Programs mainly was due to improved performance on sustainment services activities.

During 2008, operating profit declines in Combat Aircraft partially were offset by increases in Other Aeronautics Programs and Air Mobility. In Combat Aircraft, the decline mainly was due to lower volume on F-16 programs and lower volume and the decline in 2008 of the amount of favorable inception-to-date performance adjustments on the F-22 program.

Company spokesmen said the increase in Other Aeronautics Programs mainly was due to higher volume in sustainment services activities, which partially was offset by a decrease in operating profit due to performance on a P-3 modification contract. In Air Mobility, operating profit increased mainly due to higher volume and improved performance on C-130 support activities, which more than offset a decline on C-5 programs.
