" Emergency responders suspected that Slot was already dead when they arrived at the debris-littered scene. But he wasn't. Perhaps it's a testament to Tesla's safety measures that Slot remained alive and was briefly resuscitated en route to the hospital"

From the article...

Holy crap. perhaps he died of medical malpractice :O

How about instead of trying to spin it one way or the other, try publishing the facts. No real news entity should be spinning stories, but they obviously do in order to pull in a larger audience, or deliver their agenda (Fox, MSN).

I'm really tired of these crappy stories that I see on local news meant to scare folks, or pull at their heartstrings. They really misguide peoples perceptions of reality.

What people fail to look at during the campaigns is what circles does this guy run in?...who is he going to put in his Cabinet? It's not about electing the figurehead, it's all about who's going to be pushing the agendas.

FWIW, I agree with you on Carter, Bush, and Obama, all incompetent...I'll give Carter the title of nicest guy though.

Funny, I heard this bullshit when I was stationed there ('79-'81 Air Force), and from my landlord's son, to which I responded..."If we're occupying, why am I paying rent to your father?". It's not an occupation anymore when you can be asked/forced to leave, and that was the case even back then.

Furthermore, if you're going to put in all that effort at a bad college, then just self-educate. By going to college for the money, you're letting the status quo control you.

While I'd like to agree with you, as someone who's hired a lot of engineers, I'll say that there is definite discrimination against those w/o degrees. Unless you're an extremely rare case, you'll never catch up to your peers in regard to earnings. And, you'll have a much more difficult time getting through the HR wickets in the hiring process. Don't care about earnings, or "letting the status quo control you"?...go for it.
