The F-16 was a fine aircraft. The F-35 and F-22 have been nothing but disappointments. Neither have lived up to their billing. I think the insider bidding that Lockheed did in order to get those two contracts and the unfulfilled promises of their products should be reason enough to not only revoke the contracts, but they should pay the tax payers back (with interest) and they should be banned from future aviation contracts of this size for at least the next 3 projects. The amount of waste in military contracts and needless spending on hapless projects is insane. Wake up.
And I'm sure all the artists are rejoicing in the victory that they'll financially benefit from handsomely!!!
Trying to still keep Nikola Tesla down even from the grave!
Activate interlock, dynotherms connected, infra cells up, megathrusters are go!
Time to reregulate telecommunications. Private enterprise has essentially left us Comcast as a sole "choice" in large cities for cable/ internet and Direct TV as a satellite provider. Competition is gone and monopolies are born. So much for a free market.
OK not really. I knew someone with severe PTSD and after going through electroshock they were much better. They were able to be happy once again. While it may seem barbaric and extreme, think about what kind of extreme pain got them there in the first place.
I hope that ALL GMO crops are banned worldwide, including the US.
Form Blazing Sword!!!
I was thinking like desert or throw a magnifying glass in front of it.
Couldn't you just use the heat from direct sunlight?
Whatever you'd like to believe the Patriot Act, which affected many old laws, made everything that the NSA legal. Whether it is constitutional or not is irrelevant because it was never ruled on by the SCOTUS. To think that every packet that you've sent for the past 12 years hasn't been filtered in some way by some federal legal authority is naive. I can distinguish between Hollywood and the things that are happening around that. Art reflects reality. I suggest you read the Patriot Act and what is and what is not still in effect. You'd be surprised how far reaching it is. The Constitution cannot protect you from a law that alters it and hasn't been challenged. There are things SCOTUS is afraid to touch and the PA was one of them.
A lifetime achievement award for exposing the existence of spies. Didn't anyone see the Bourne movies? Black Briar anyone? This guy didn't expose anything.
New submitter digitalFlack writes "Apparently Martin Manley has been a popular blogger and newspaper journalist for many years. For his own reasons, no indication of illness, he decided sixty years on this planet was enough. He designed a 40-page website with sections such as: 'Why Suicide?' and 'Why Age 60?.' Martin planned his suicide meticulously, but to manage his legacy, he picked Yahoo. He even pre-paid for five years. After he left this mortal coil on his 60th birthday, Yahoo decided they don't want his traffic, so they took the site down. Sorry, Martin."
What's lost here is the poetry. You don't read Shakespeare simply for the story, you read it for the eloquence of the writer. Cyrano de Bergerac would be whittled down to Roxanne. This is a bad idea. Why are we always trying to dumb down everything? Let him make the product and let it fail, but don't give him a patent.
