U.K. to Use GPS to Slow Speeders?

Unless you have a very expensive GPS unit ($10,000+), the accuracy is about 3 meters. They can buy 8-9 good radar units for that price. Also, the software that creates the maps that are displayed on the units you put on/in cars is pretty crappy. Save your tax money and get V.A.S.C.A.R. (Visual Average Speed Computer And Recorder). They run about $1,500 each. They send out NO signal to radar detectors and can be used coming, going, front, rear. The operator can be staionary, moving or in an aircraft. The only way to beat them is to NOT SPEED.  (Jan 1, 2008 | post #4)

EACS taking bids to finish safety upgrade

I wonder if these "adults" have any form of training so they might spot articles coming into the school, carried by the onrush of students entering! Can they spot knives, guns, dope, etc. And, are they permitted to touch ( OH! NO!) a student that might be walking in with a weapon of some sort? With the current state of the world, I can see the "student " flipping the teacher off and walking away (best case). Or, will the "little dear" simply stick a knife in the teacher? (worse case) Or, will "Little Johnny" in his Twinkie induced rage just start shooting? In our rush to be politically correct, even though the teachers know who the most likely troublemakes are, they dare not try and kick the little crud out of school for fear of "offending " someone. The schools efforts are well meaning but completely useless if they do not have the ability to remove KNOWN problems before trouble occurs! "two adults stand by each door to provide added security".  (Dec 14, 2007 | post #1)

No Joke: Colbert '08 Could Be Illegal

Folks like this really scare me. If you're not making a funny you need to have a brain transplant. Somthing in your wiring has become badly connected.

Thousands Call for Swift End to Iraq War

Just one thing you missed. Iraq had nothing to do with the World Trade Center! It appears you have forgotten or overlooked who planed that event. As you might recall, the reasons that the "current occupant" and his cronies used to sucker us into the invasion of Iraq seem to have been rather strongly proven to be untrue! And... yes Sadam was a "bad man". It's good he is gone and... no, we have not captured or killed the right guy who lays claim to the WTC tragedy.  (Oct 30, 2007 | post #172)

FEMA Apologizes For Phony News Conference

powerstobe wrote: We wonder why the American public is loosing trust in the government and its leaders - this is one of the reasons. So many of the government agencies need to be cleaned up - in other words, get rid of those that have made it their home for the past 20 years and bring in those that can run it the way it should be - with trust and loyality Strobe ol boy, the "trust" is already there. It's known around here as "We're here to help you", "It's for the public good","w e're protecting the homeland" and "Made in China"! Loyality is here also. It's known as "don't tell on me and I won't tell on you", It's for the good of the Party", "It's good for business" and "Made in China".!  (Oct 29, 2007 | post #461)

No Joke: Colbert '08 Could Be Illegal

He can't be any more illegal than 20 million other people in this country. Just think of it. If he got elected would his election be any more screwed up than than Georgie's? Shoot, at least Colbert can carry on a conversation, tell a fairly good joke and... he doesn't try to appear as somthing he isn't.  (Oct 29, 2007 | post #177)

Nuclear submarine commander removed

Sure wish it was that simple to remove incompitance or at least lazyness from government! Maybe we would not be in the early stages of losing the Constitution if there wern't so many incompitant and lazy politicans.  (Oct 29, 2007 | post #143)

FEMA Apologizes For Phony News Conference

This is just about 90% of the trouble with this administration (or for that matter, any administration). Someone creates a lie and everyone else makes excuses when they get caught. The White House press secretary says " the agency was just trying to provide information to the public, through the press, because there were so many questions." "I don't think that there was any mal-intent," Perino said "It was just a bad way to handle it, and they know that." Let's see... A lot of questions...issue a press release! No Brainer. "I don't think that there was any mal-intent," Perino said. Is that sorts like "I did not have sex with that woman"? The "mal-intent " was to mis-lead and lie! I used to get scolded by my Mother for lying to her. Most folks get fired for lying to their boss, not scolded.  (Oct 29, 2007 | post #457)

Sorry. Guess I'm just not smart enough to try and make a point! And, by the way. Murders, as a rule don't just stop killing. They just keep pretending! Think about it.  (Oct 22, 2007 | post #435)

Immigration Reform

'An insult' to all Latinos?

Part of the reason is that those of us who were lucky enough to be born in the United States (for the most part)spent our lives abiding by laws we might not agree with. But... we abide with them anyway. Now, when anyone - Hispanic, Irainian, Black, White, Green or Purple, continues to ignore the laws, many of us get a little testy. Combine this with the current political state of this nation, the lying politicians, the greedy oil companies and the fact that Walt Disney has been dead for some time and, you can start to understand where just a little of the prejudice comes from. We want to finish our lives with a little peace and quiet. We don't want to worry about some of the people coming over the border just because it's easier to steal in a area where there are more victims. Doesn't mean everyone coming over is bad, just means they are lawbreakers to begin with. We don't want to have to teach our children another language to order a hamburger. We don't want to worry that the food we import is safe. We don't want to poison our pets, find our cars wrecked by someone without insurance. We have enough issues to deal with without having another country shove more on us. Many of us bled and died to see OUR flag waving in this country. SO..... stand in line. Wait your turn. Respect our language. Follow our rules (after all,they were here before you were). Do those few simple things and you'll find most U.S. Citizens will look forward to learning more about the heritage you bring to blend with ours!  (Oct 22, 2007 | post #5994)
