That's what happens.
If cars had the same design features as a nuke upon failure of ANY of the safety systems (steering, suspension, traction, brakes, etc.) the car would bring itself safely to a halt off the road without hitting any other vehicles or pedestrians and shut itself down.
Before that happened, the car would have triple-redundant systems for each function.

Selective amnesia. Go to the birfer site, no one cares.
Just caught a glimpse of my horoscope on the side of the topix page.

"A friend finds it hard to see the wood for the trees today, because they're so caught up in petty details that don't mean nearly as much as they think. Not that you can tell them that, because they'll overreact and start foaming at the mouth."

But guess we're not really friends so you're off the hook. Same for Homer and Tenzing.

But if we WERE all friends...how eerily accurate my horosocpe would be, huh?

What I found really funny about Betty's post was her assertion that Bush got "the economy up and running again after 9/1l". LMAO
Except it is true; after a dip in the economy caused by 9/11 the economy returned to levels at before.

Prove it is wrong.

Three plus years ago he said he could easily respond from his job in Berks County PA and that it only took a few seconds per post and that it didn't interfere with the quality of his work. He, Nobama back then, also said that he had no cell phone, that he drove an old Honda and he also shared that he drove all the way to Maryland in order to buy his liquor rather than play by Pennsylvania's rules.
Nobama also took shots at California at every opportunity, describing the Golden State as a fkn hellhole operated by idiots that would be better off falling into the ocean. He enjoyed playing golf in Arizona during his vacations from PA.
Ladies and gentlemen I submit that Galt aka Nobama is either a mentally disturbed phony or that he works for topix as a paid contributor-poster.
Fkn liar Realtime makes one bad assumption and then proceeds to draw numerous illogical conclusions.

<quoted text>Really? Can you post just one of the economic leading indicators for the US that has not improved since Obama took office? I'll help you. ALL things about the economy are better since 2008.
Trying for the straw man argument? Look, we all know Obama came into office during the most recent severe decline in the economy and "global recession", so one would expect things to improve, so don't try and play your moronic game with me, libtard.

The facts are that this has been the slowest recovery in history, mired by Obama and the Democrats (Obamacare, regulations, poor energy policies, and so on).

The U-6 has increased beyond what anyone would have imagined under the Food Stamp President Obama. People have given up.

"Not since at least 1960 has the US standard of living fallen so fast for so long. The average American has $1,315 less in annual disposable income now than at the onset of the Great Recession."

Galt works from home in Chadds Ford Pa. as a social network marketing clone of Herbalife Distributer, Amway or similar-type networking cult-firm selling cheap , slave-labor intensive labor services or goods or Chinese-manufactured goods. I wouldn't be surprised if Galt worked in Kevin Garver's networking clique.

Can't admit that con's are liars? Why am I not surprised.

CONSERVATIVE LIE: "Obama has prosecuted more Whistle Blowers than all Presidents combined"

Keeping in mind that the Internet wasn't introduced to the public until 1982:

Whistle Blower statistics by the numbers:

Obama: 5 (including Snowden)

Bush: 3 (of course, he and Chaney don't count because they were not charged)

Reagan: 1

Nixon: 1

Remember when a bridge collapsed in Minnesota a few years ago and everybody blamed lack of maintenance?

Well the truth is that the design basis for the bridge was bumper-to-bumper fully loaded tractor trailers in all lanes, plus the bridge dead load and snow and ice load, plus a margin of safety.

Then some dumbass maintenance contractor loaded the bridge with construction materials that weighed far in excess of the design basis for the bridge. Probably never knew the dsign basis or bothered to check. Yet the bridge designer was blamed.
