I don't know what's more amazing:
that the US Dept of Defense is first with 3.2 million employees (but,
according to Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and most other Republicans other than Ron Paul, can't
be cut a measly 10% to 2.88 million in order for the military-industrial
complex to do its share in saving the country from an
excrutiating suicide by debt and monetary folly); or that Walmart
ranks third; or that the UK National Health Service ranks fifth with 1.7
million employees out of a small population of 60 million.
