Still acting like an airhead to avoid the reality that the National Defense Panel is LAW, was appointed by Hagel and their evaluation is used by Congress to determine defense spending?

I really lit you up, Woody!!

Want to tell me just how many will be employed in the design, production, programming, and maintaining robots??

About 85% less than the people who will be replaced by the technology. DUH

It's not labor intensive, like spreading the manure you specialize in.

Sweeping streets?? You're a real grunt, eh?? LOL

You really don't appear to be your brash, braggadocious self Woody.

Time for a movie??

Who do you want on this panel??? Who do you believe better understands the needs of our military?? Would you prefer a panel of bureaucrats who have never served?

The Quadrennial Defense Review Independent Panel is a bipartisan congressional panel charged with conducting an assessment of the assumptions, strategy, findings, and risks described in the Department of Defense’s Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR).

The Panel is composed of 20 national security and defense experts and retired senior military leaders. The secretary of defense nominated twelve members of the Panel, while the House Armed Services Committee and the Senate Armed Services Committee each nominated four members.

You are fibbing. When the boy nobama took office, gasoline prices in Spokane. WA averaged about $1.69 gallon. Now the average price is about $3.79.

Caught you in that piece of stupidity real good, didn't I, mate??

So what if we have one of the highest 'average' living standards??

Meaning I live like a King, Woodticks live like..........woodticks.

What does that have to do with people who can't put food on the table??

That allows an asshat like you, who hates to behave like a citizen and pay taxes, to ignore the terrible poverty facing many Americans.

You really are a stupid little tool.

So why'd you make the lame comment about 'gas was $1.89 when Obama took office'??
Oil prices peaked in July 2008 at about $145 a bbl.
Gasoline was over $4. a gallon.
The Bush collapsed the economy, and oil prices fell to $41 a bbl by December 2008.
http://www.fedprimerate.com/crude-oil-price-h...
As th economy has improved, so have oil prices, currently close to $100 a bbl.
So higher gas prices indicate a stronger economy.
I'm pretty tired of you nitwits making dumb accusatory comments, then being proven wrong.
If you're going to attribute oil production to a president, same goes to gas prices. He has very little to do with either. Market demands and drilling on private and state property increased oil and gas production and the market demands increased gas prices. The point was if you're going to give credit for one, give credit for the other. Cherry pick much?

Another dream of yours, while demilitarizing Israel send more missiles to hamas so they can fire them at more civilian targets.
Thank God Israel has the balls to defend their folks.
Just a simple question, actually two questions;
1 - Why do you hate Israel and their Jewish population
2 - Why do you support hamas? Is it because nancy pelousy says the atr a "humanitarian organization"?
Peace

I do not hate the "Jewish population". I, and millions of others, hate what the leaders of israel have and are doing to the Palestinians. As I have said many, many times before, the "Jewish population" is the victim of their zionist leaders. Do you know how many times the U.N. has condemed Israeli "violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms" in the occupied territories?

I support the people of Gaza and their right to elect those whom they believe will do all they can to end israel's oppression. We should respect their choice. The fact that Hamas has been labeled a terrorist organization doesn't come into play. Israel uses that as an excuse for their tyranny.

My hope is to see an end to the conflicts between the state of israel and the state of Palestine in my lifetime.

For the record, Pelosi never said Hamas was a "humanitarian organization". She said the Qataris consider Hamas a humanitarian organization. You will never learn the truth about anything if you listen to Fox.

2.Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
First two "sound" like population control.

3.Unite humanity with a living new language.

4.Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
The word Rule ... Who should Rule these things?

6.Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
A World Court headed by The UN ?

There are 10 principles. Some sound benign. Others, not so much.

A perfect example of a Federal Worker is a member of the Military. DUH
A temporary employee, at that. Enlistment to enlistment, at the discretion of Command.
Nobraina is so stupid.
Thanks for clarifying.

"Enlistment to enlistment, at the discretion of Command." Helpful.
Yeah

Henry Ford came up with the idea of paying his factory employees enough so that they could buy his products. DUH
And sales of Fords Model T flourished!!
Now how smart was he?? He created the American consumer class with that idea.
And you're way too stupid to see or understand a word of it.
who is to buy when most folks are paid subsistence wages??
You have no concept of how the economy works, Nobraina.
People with no money aren't consumers. DUH
Automation and the assembly line made it possible to hire less workers thereby paying workers more. I can see the return of the old Horn and Hardart automats.
