I knew this test message from FEMA was going to generate another anti-Trump thread on here. If you really want someone to blame, blame Obama as he is the one that signed the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System Modernization Act of 2015 into law. Here is some bathroom reading about it: https:/...Jump to post

Imagery on Google was acquired in November 2016. The imagery on Bing is much older than that. I used to work on the Bing Maps program and the last time imagery of this area was acquired was likely prior to 2012. After 2014, Microsoft decided to sell off almost all of their mapping assets, so most of...Jump to post
The local media where I live reported on this story last night and mentioned that the officer was intoxicated at the time of the shooting. That's why were hearing about probable manslaughter charges so soon into the investigation. If found to be true, being drunk while still in uniform is going to b...Jump to post
Nor does Tesla receive the $7,500/2,500, that is returned directly back to the taxpaying car buyer - of any electric. True, government rebates do go direct to the final purchaser, but Tesla still benefits from it. Any time the government offers rebates on anything on a large scale, the purchase pri...Jump to post
What taxpayer funded government subsidies are those? Space? All of Musk's companies have received a total of 4.9 billion dollars in taxpayer funded government subsidies according to a study done by the LA Times back in 2015. Regarding electric cars, the Federal government kicks in $7500 toward each...Jump to post

Do the quotes of the president, in which he describes the goal and even suggest a higher tariff not be enough? Or do you want me to find a first hand source that Trump said that he was going to do, what he said he would be doing? Okay, thinking about it, this might actually is a necessary requireme...Jump to post
I can't believe how much the anti-Trump/anti-America crowd on here is foaming at the mouth and hysterical about this.

I've seen multiple comments from ANet staff over the past several months that there are plans for a separate forum for Political discussions. Why hasn't this been implemented yet? The addition of a new forum can be done in 24 hours if one wanted to. Non-Aviation needs serious attention as it is a ma...Jump to post

I doubt very seriously any technician or mechanic would be interested in this type of repair. When it comes to problems with small electronics, it's always replace, not repair. Plus, do you really want to pay a technician $75 an hour to troubleshoot a device that could cost as little as $15 to repla...Jump to post
I'd go with Tugger's suggestion of getting an OEM off of Ebay. It's low cost/low risk. It's highly unlikely someone is going to be out to sell you a "bad" radio. Putting it in is likely very easy. There is a cosmetic trim around the radio and climate controls that you will need to remove. ...Jump to post
The employees are hired and agree to contracted terms with the team. If it is not in the terms then its open to what is done and how it is managed. This will be a part of the next player contract talks. There is no doubt that written into the contract of each NFL player is a clause that says they c...Jump to post
What's next, I ordered a burger without ketchup so I was over charged 4¢? I wanted a burger without a bun, so I am due $1.13? I didn't accept the pretzels United offered me on my last flight, therefore I was overcharged for the flight.....Where does it end?Jump to post
The only reason the NFL owners acted is because profits and ratings are down. For me, this is too little, too late. And to those people that complain about "rights of the players"...this is an employee conduct issue, not a rights issue. Regular working people have to follow the rules set b...Jump to post
And yet, it is the world most popular sport.... McDonald's sells more burgers than any other company in the world which I guess makes them "the most popular" burger restaurant....that doesn't mean their burgers are any good. The reason why it is the most popular "world" sport is...Jump to post
Yes, hail events can be very localized.

Many things surprised me during my visits to China as it was such a cultural shock for me. One of the biggest things that remained on my mind for some time afterward is how travel within the country is monitored and is "authorized".

87 octane..... I don't believe I can find something like that here in Western Europe. It's at leest 95 and up to 102. I used to drive a tuned VW turbo and needed at least 98 octane That's one of the many reasons fuel in Europe is more expensive than in North America. Our vehicles are generally engi...Jump to post
$2.93 per gallon yesterday in Denver...this is for 87 octane which is our mid-grade fuel. The media here always compares our 85 octane prices to the rest of the country's 87 and 88 octane prices, making Colorado's fuel price appear to be below the national average when in fact it is above the nation...Jump to post
If you're not a Chinese citizen this is going to be great for everyone else. On the whole the Chinese are the rudest and most disgusting tourists on the planet. They spit everywhere, throw trash around, have no concept of lines or social graces at all. They ignore signs and are just awful in genera...Jump to post

There are several users that frequent these political threads that cannot communicate as adults. I tune them out and I'm sure others do too as it's hard to take anything they say seriously when they sound like 12 year old boys insulting each other on a school bus.Jump to post
