This is an interesting take on carrier numbers, albeit from a Navy officer.   http://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2012/07/17/why-does-the-united-states-only-have-eleven-aircraft-carriers/   - - - - -     The US has lots of programs that could likely easily be cancelled or scaled back considerably.  The F-22, for example, has never been used in combat, is very expensive and actually has a safety issue that the Air Force hasn't bothered to fix.  The main reason...
I will add more later, but defense could really take some over-hauling (cutting and changing).  There is a ton of waste and the military we have is very outdated, designed for a different war.   It isn't just as easy as saying we need 13 carriers or 7.  It is also about modernizing and adapting to present needs. A lot of streamlining, too.  And cutting.  
Ryan lied about his time in a marathon... by a lot.  Is this how the guy will think about numbers in the future (or the truth for that matter?)?  He seems more worried that his brother was upset than the fact that he had lied in the first place to the public.   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/01/paul-ryan-marathon-time_n_1848715.html   - - - - - -   Big companies of the likes of Bain are under...
    Didn't Clint suggest the shouldn't have attacked Afghanistan?   And then Mitt said he wants to make the most powerful military so that others won't challenge the US.  Playing to the base.
  Note my edit.
    BluRay...   hahahah.  Had to get an external drive for that.   Agree on the other two.  Especially all flash storage.  Have the current 27" with SSD + HD.  I sometimes forget about the HD... until it has to spin up. 
The long wait is interesting.   Currently, I am on an iMac 27" 3.4 with SSD, the current model that  bought last year.  Fantastic machine; it replaced a two-year old MacPro and I have never regretted what many might call a down-grade.  The SSD is likely the key to that.     The current machine has Thunderbolt and USB 2.  I can see the addition of another TB port and an upgrade to USB 3.     Like the poster above, I burn BluRay to an external drive.  I do,...
The GOP party had Clint.   The Daily Show had Nimoy.     And Michael Steele.   And sex.   http://www.thedailyshow.com/full-episodes/thu-august-30-2012-michael-steele
Wow.  Are my glasses OK?   One of the Koch brothers thinks gay marriage is OK.   He also thinks taxes should be raised.   http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0812/80483.html   Wonder how long it will take before he is called not truly a Republican or Conservative or American of whatever.
Isaac, almost seven years to the day after Katrina.   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/30/hurricane-isaac-pictures-photos_n_1844124.html   Has the storm been mentioned at the GOP pep rally?  I am just asking about a mention of the difficulty and danger that people are facing while the truth is being stretched in Tampa.
