And just why would the party in power research the nefarious reasons for its own success? Democrats have been in control in King County, Washington since I can remember, and the shifting demographics in that and two neighboring urban counties now completely overwhelm the rest of the voters in the remaining 40-some Read more

In my state, you can get a drivers license without being a citizen, and you can register to vote with your driver’s license. Ergo, unnaturalized residents vote, and comprise a very large plurality in our demographics. The best part, the great majority of voting takes place by mail-in-ballot, which makes it still Read more

And so let’s vilify the Republicans for doing the very same thing the Democrats did in the first place by dropping barriers for entry, creating ‘sanctuary cities’ that block the enforcement of federal law, and also for making only perfunctory attempts to patrol the border in the first place. Each party caters to those Read more

If not, maybe they should. Although...after Ford dumped International / Navistar to go back to making their own pickup engines (6.0 liter Powerchoke anybody?), Cat cozied up and developed an semi-truck with them. Those were garbage too. Maybe Cat should just stay away.

If Cat could build an emissions compliant diesel engine that is worth a shit, that is.

God Damn them and send them to hell for trying to make a vehicle the consumer can work on. Those dastardly sons of bitches! I just hope Ford never takes a page from Nissan.

A few reasons restarting production: first, the tooling is supposedly in con-ex containers, stored in contingency to restart production, but at least some of the materials are missing and would need to be remanufactured. The factory space that would house F-22 production has been reallocated to produce other items. Read more

And so Russia has responded by having a large proportion of its ICBM on mobile launchers, not sitting in silos like our antiquated Minuteman system. They also maintain a fleet of ballistic missile submarines and nuclear capable bombers which pretty much obviates the dangers posed by our ‘super fuze’ technology. The Read more

As I said, congress are too beholden to those who pay for their campaigns to be actually concerned with doing the people’s business. Therefore, I am happy that we have a maverick in the oval office.

Maybe so. They can get to it, right after they fix healthcare, social security and immigration...

The reason the F-35 won’t die (or can’t be killed) is because it isn’t JUST one party pushing, it’s both of them. They have so divided up production and maintenance contracts that just about every state has some stake in production, not to mention the international partners. It is the political third-rail of military Read more

This acquisition is a mess and if this upsets the process and forces changes, then the ends justify the means. The joint strike fighter program should have been killed a half-a-trillion dollars ago.

I am all for collective bargaining for wages and benefits, but as a conservative, am staunchly opposed to the political games that are played with the dues money. How somehow directing that lobbying activities undertaken by labor unions be directly related to the industry that union represents.

$150k wouldn’t buy you one (new) truck. You’ll have to settle for a bunch of ‘gently used’ SWIFT trade-ins. You know SWIFT stands for Sure, We’re Insured for This, so you can be sure those trucks will be in top-notch shape.

The reason the electoral college exists is to protect small states from states like California and NY that can individually swing an election despite the opposite party winning MANY more individual states. In this case, it worked perfectly.

Those big deck amphibs are just about the size and displacement of MOST of the rest of the aircraft carriers not owned by the U.S.

As a Seahawk and part time PAC12 football fan, I’ve learned that it isn’t a penalty unless the officials bother to throw the flag for it. Glad to see that we are not always victims of bad officiating, at least.

Funny how such an inadvertent coincidence could bring down even the most carefully constructed corrupt organization.

If you want us to stop calling them Dodges, then stop making them look like Dodges.
