  • Not sure if J.J. Abrams is the best choice to direct the new Star wars film?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a big J.J. Abrams fan, love the new Star Trek film, Lost and alot of his other stuff.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a big J.J. Abrams fan, love the new Star Trek film, Lost and alot of his other stuff. My fear is that he has a bit of a generic Holllywood style of directing, in my opinion. I think someone like Christopher Nolan would be a much better choice because he adds a certain realism and depth to his films. Abrams is more like Micheal Bay, lots of camera movement and effects. Star Wars needs to get back to it's core which is the story and the characters and I think Nolan would be better at telling that kind of story. Again, just my opinion.

  • If you are a moderate liberal, do you believe raising taxes on the rich will solve our economic issues?

    Fron what Ive read and seen, raisIng taxes on the rich is like a drop in the bucket. The problem is govt. spendIng, not revenue. How can you spend 1+trillion$ a year Over the past 3 years and ask for more? It's like a teenager with a credit card. There has to be a limit!

  • What is going on with Google news and the one sided stories they run about the presidential election?

    I used to have Google News as my home page, no longer. I am sick to death of the one sided coverage on the upcoming presidential election.

Every story about Romney is negative and it's the opposite for Obama. I thought the news was supposed to be unbiased but not anymore. Google should be ashamed of itself and the stories it puts on its news website. I would like to see a comparison of positive Obama stories vs. negative Romney stories. I know it has to be very lopsided in Obamas favor.

  • On most modern commercial jet aircraft, do the ignitors fire at the same time the engine begins to spool?

    I'm having a discussion with another A&P mechanic about commercial jet turbine engine start up, such as the GE 90-115B.

  • Does it seem ridiculous that the SSC Ultimate Aero and the Bugatti Veyron have never had a head to head race?

They are the two fastest production cars in the world but they are too chicken **** to actually get on a track to see who is faster. Why?

There was a debate over the amendment to exclude children of illegal aliens but it was never added to the amendment. So, why in the !#@# has Congress not included in the amendment a section excluding children born here by illegal immigrants? For the life of me I can't wrap my head around the ignorance of this issue by our govt. Is it because they fear of losing the hispanic vote or money or what?

Howard Stern proved this the other day by asking a bunch of people in New York if they minded that Barrack Obama had a woman ( Sarah Palin) as a running mate. Most of the people said they didn't care and had no clue that she was McCain's running mate. It scares me that people who have absolutely no clue who is even running in this election can vote. Should we not have to have some very basic understanding of the govt. and the people we are electing before we can vote. I'm not asking much but there are millions of people out there that can't find the US on a globe or don't know what the capital is of their own state. I don't care who they vote for but it's my opinion that high school dropout's and convicted felons should lose their right to vote. Getting a GED is about as easy as getting a driver's license so there's no excuse and if you're a felon then tough s*#t.

I honestly want to know.
