  1. There is a lot of non essential government programs. As far as stealing from our kids, that is already done. They are on to the next generations kids.
  2. There is no need to change the debt ceiling to pay the interest payments on the current debt.
  3. Sooner or later this will happen. The more debt we have the worse it will be, although considering the current level more won't make much of any difference. Once foreign bond holders finally realize the US will never pay back the debt it's all down hill from there. China is already beginning to back away from US debt.
  4. You are right regarding long term. But in the short term the US doesn't have to raise the debt ceiling in order to not default on the debt. The US Gov brings in enough revenue to pay the current interest on the debt. All they have to do is cut spending elsewhere.
  5. It's good to ask questions. It just seems like he isn't doing any research and finding what evidence there is to support the claims that scientists make. His idea that the universe rotates around earth is pretty silly.
  6. I think the major pattern that is showing in the latest shootings is the mental illness and drugs used by the shooters.
  7. Solution to Syria found! http://www.theonion.com/articles/poll-majority-of-americans-approve-of-sending-cong,33752/ It's been staring us in the face all along!
  8. I don't necessarily believe everything they write, but I do find it more credible then the story the Obama admin is pushing. Try attacking the information rather then the source. Just because you don't like the source doesn't mean they are wrong.
  9. Or maybe they just don't like the idea of hundreds of kids and over a thousand adults being gassed to death by their own government. Does this action remind you of anything from 20th century history? There is a REASON why chemical weapons were banned after World War 1, you know. People often make issues political, when in reality they are moral. I don't think the US Gov really cares about the children. Bombing Syria will not make them safer.
  10. I am not convinced that this push from the Obama administration to go to war with Syria has anything to do with chemical weapons. It's been very clear that Obama wants this war and he is just trying to drum up support. And don't bother to claim they aren't wanting to go to war. Bombing is an act of war. It's same as how a woman can't be just a little pregnant. http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/is-the-united-states-going-to-go-to-war-with-syria-over-a-natural-gas-pipeline I find this much more compelling then the bullshit Obama and John Kerry are pushing.
  11. Never underestimate the stupidity of politicians. The US may just posture, but it wouldn't surprise me if they attack Syria.
  12. It seems that Saudi Arabia is the country that want's the US to attack Syria the most.
  13. Yeah, I can see the US attacking Syria and then getting dragged into a long drawn out war. It's like any fight... "Everyone has a plan till you get punched in the mouth." It wouldn't surprise me if this triggered WW3. US bombs Syria so Iran and Syria attack Israel. Israel retaliates against Syria and Iran.. All out ground and air war starts and drags the US in to help out Israel. Russian gets more involved.. Soon half the world is participating in killing people in the middle east.
  14. How is any military action going to improve the situation? Any military action is essentially war.
  15. http://www.zerohedge.com/contributed/2013-09-03/point-point-rebuttal-us-case-war-syria I really don't care if chemical weapons were used in Syria or if it was rebels using them or Syrian army. I don't see how getting involved will help the situation at all.
  16. I don't see how getting involved will help the US or in any way improve the situation over there. I think it will only make things worse.
  17. Hmm.. apparently it wasn't a priority for Interstate Battery. I never asked about the jumpsuits. Never even thought about it till now.
  18. I have no idea. I am not in the commercial and had nothing to do with it, other then observing them at the dropzone. It's just the usual lawyer's disclaimer would be my guess.
  19. I agree, it's more then most whuffos get to see. Shows a more realistic view of skydiving.
  20. From what I was told this was all done in a very short time frame. In a matter of weeks. So no time to build new jumpsuits. The skydiving part was done over two days, maybe three. I know it was done over a Saturday and Sunday not sure about Monday as I have to work weekdays. But then again someone always has to come up with a negative critic.
  21. http://youtu.be/reTpk-phw4s I don't know if anyone has posted this yet, but this was shot at Skydive Dallas. Pretty cool. The skydving was organized by Al Hively and Scott Latinis. It was fun to watch this whole thing being organized. They all did a great job. Looks great.
  22. This is the last sentence in that article. This should clue you into the fact that there is no simple solution and that none of us know enough about the situation to even propose a solution. That's why I think they should come out and be honest about the problem and ask for help. I am sure there are many smart engineers around the world that would accept their request.
  23. That article doesn't have the full information. It's much more complicated then that. They don't actually know where all of the rods are located. Do some more research. It's not as simple as this article makes it out to be.
