CNBC: Stocks to own for the next 239 years
Weapons have certainly been around since the nation's founding, but the machinery made by Lockheed Martin would have left George Washington speechless.
There are, of course, other ways to play this. One could always build a survivalist bunker now that could potentially stand up to the weapons of mass destruction of the distant future.
Fixed fortifications are monuments to man's stupidity. - George S. Patton
Hmm. Perhaps it is best to just stick with the "sure thing" Lockheed Martin stock instead and hope for the best.
That said, sticks are still free for those who know where to look. The return on investment, over the long-term, could therefore be spectacular! And don't forget that a properly placed stick fired at a high velocity could grant you complete access to all of your opponent's sticks.
Think of it as compound bow interest.
In all seriousness, if CNBC really thinks that weapons will be one of the best investments over the next 239 years then I have only one thing to say:
Clown horn time.
You better hope that I am right to think this way.

Doomsday Clock moved closer to midnight
Noting that nuclear trends are moving backwards, the Science and Security Board's Sharon Squassoni pointed out that weapons modernization programs and disarmament have "ground to a halt."
Perhaps weapons can be a good investment for a time, but at some point we will all become victims of their success. Based on the human history of never letting a powerful weapon go to waste, I have few doubts about that.
