Hitler is making a comeback! Who knew that college campuses and Neo-Nazis could find so much common ground? In a month when an astonishing number of people support Holocaust 2.0, and while innocent Palestinians are being used as human shields (and Egypt refuses to let them in), there’s been a tidal wave of horror and stupidity.
I’m thrilled more than you realize to see that free speech still has a home in the Wells $treet comments.
With all the crude going on in this world, you might have to start writing a Part 3!
Post early tomorrow because I think we will need most of the day to bludgeon each other.
Correction: the amount the US owes is not 6.3% of GDP. That’s the amount we borrow in additional new debt every year.
To clarify--the person who was (rightly) hounded in 2013 for her support of mRNA technology because of its generally deadly outcomes, now wins a Nobel prize----for a "vaccine" that neither prevents transmission of a disease, nor necessarily protects a person from getting said disease, and also has the added "benefit" of causing myocarditis, ocular swelling, infertility and more (all verified, all data reported). OK. Now we know where the Nobel people stand.
With all the crude going on in the world today, you might have to add a Part 3!
"That “safety” includes a Cruise robo-taxi coming to rest on top of a woman it hit."
Wrong. Try to be accurate.
At least two Cruise robo-taxis have been reported for incidents involving injured pedestrians, the most recent of which occurred earlier this month when a woman who was struck by a human-driven car in a hit-and-run incident subsequently became trapped under a Cruise robo-taxi.
I am surprised to hear Mary Lou Retton didn't have health insurance. Well this is another example where we have a broken medical care delivery system in this country. I am not really happy with the out-of control capitalism in the US. Our economic system needs revamping.
back in my early engineering days (my 1st 20 years on DOD projects) i worked several worthless projects. I heard then the F-35 was following the "program management accelerated schedule" which violated the typical DOD mil-spec rules of design-develop-qualify-then production. Of course all DOD projects are run by a military guy who's trying to gain rank and get things done asap and look like a weapons development god.
so the F35 never was fully designed but on a "risk basis" for an "urgently needed product" they went ahead on production back around 1999. of course coutless things arose that were truly bad and required redesign and rework to anything already built (think $$$$). i recall hearing around 2008 the pilots would pass out from a lack of oxygen from a new system that often just didn't work (did it ever pass qualification tests???)....... fortunately the plane could detect a passed out pilot and fly UP to a safe elevation and circle for a while for the pilot to wake up.....
the F35 was supposed to be a Joint Strike Fighter having commonality and application for army-navy-air force. except the different needs of army-navy-airforce required all 3 versions to be uniquely different. AND the result is a product much like an "on road-off road" vehicle that doesn't really work well on road or off road......
sadly this is only one haywire project. I worked on the Phoenix missle project long ago and the design issues of a product "released for production" would make your head spin. the Phoenix missle (thank god) never got fielded but it sure cost a lot over a good number of years.
if the DOD was honest and would delete this and other fully known "dog products" we could reduce DOD funding by 20% and never notice a thing other than saving billions in cash
I have said this before but the Elon Musk purchase of Twitter is a good example of why I am beginning to support the thought that billionaires have too much money and the government should limit how many billions they can accumulate. That money could of gone to installing Tesla Solar panels for free and giving away EVs. Foolish thoughts? Only a buffoon would spend $44 billion on Twitter. Its losing money. Some of the CNBC bobble heads think Twitter can't be saved.
So huge national debt story followed by F-35 costs. Hmmm, maybe our trillion dollar military budget might be involved somehow?
