@ibbolton…to add to johnVMFA’s reply, in the early 70′s the building standards were lowered to accelerate the the time frame of completing these towers, included in that deduction, was the thickness of the fire prevention foam that is sprayed on all the beams. That in itself helped to accelerate the time frame of melting ore with the jet fuel that was seeping downward.

Good, let God forgive him, He’s better than us…..we don’t have to and shouldn’t.

I would expect the results of this experiment, what I would truly like to see is an obvious looking practicing muslim walk through there.

We should tattoo a picture of Jesus Christ on his chest, bibles and other Christian symbols all over his body, cut out his tongue, then parachute him into northern Syria.

I think they ought to tattoo a picture of Jesus Christ on his chest, bibles and other Christian artifacts on his arms then parachute him into northern Syria but not before cutting off his tongue.

I see this article has brought out a lot of hate against dealers but let me tell you about the flip side. One of my very first deals was an education in human nature. About 11:00am a dad & son show up to buy a car for the son. I walked them over to a Colt that we were trying to give away as the line was being discontinued & this was the last one we had. No real haggle, we came down to an OTD price and shook hands on it, the finance mgr was taking a little long and the customer said to me he was going for lunch and would be right back. My mgr asked where my customer was and I explained, needless to say the mgr ate my lunch and said that customer would be down the street negotiating a new deal. Sure enough an hour later the customer called and said he had been shopping and the same car down the road was 50.00 bottom line cheaper, bottom line! Not monthly payment, bottom line! I, without conferring with my mgr told them to come down and pick up there car, we would match. Told my mgr about the phone conversation and he told me he wasn’t going to match it. Customer showed up and when I tried to explain I had jumped the gun, he started telling me that was the reason for our bad reputation. I quickly jumped down his throat about what a bad lesson he had just shown his son about honesty considering he lied about going to lunch and after shaking my hands on a done deal. Learned my lesson that day.
Yep, you got a lesson in law. Any deal for the transfer of real property over the value of $250 requires a signed contract to be valid, anything else isn't a contract.

@PMSteve, in house financing could be beneficial to some. Many credible dealers are linked up with major banks and credit unions and are able to provide the same interest rates. To say never buy an extended warranty is also bad advise. With today’s prices, many car loans run into the 51/2 to 7 year payments, the manufactures warranty will usually run out before that and besides, many warranties carry rental agreements and such which the manufactures warranty does not. Like anything else you should read the contract because there is no such thing as bumper to bumper coverage and depending on which level you buy, will determine what is covered. To say that you will never use it is actually a good thing, means you had a good vehicle that didn’t need repairs, sort of like having a life insurance plan, good to have but you don’t really want to cash in do you?

Panetta has gotten a pass on this also. I don’t think he was on board with the way things were handled but didn’t have cojones to do anything about it.

That is one humidor I wouldn’t want to use!

This is way too easy to pick on. The hypocrisy of the Palestinians and those who support them is just so blatant. Most before me have already written all that can be said, if I may add to the point of a “hate crime”….if I’m a middle aged white guy and attacked by another middle aged white guy, is my life less valuable?
In the rational world your life is not less valuable, however we are talking about twisted and destructive Liberal Progressive policies that aim to protect their 'flavor of the month protected group' and to control all aspects of what was once a free society, and especially those who disagree with them.

Then it would be a random act of violence by some thugs!
 February 15, 2015 at 9:17am
Agree, dead is dead. If a middle aged white guy shoots another middle aged white guy, there should be a lesser charge? Are those lives less valuable?

They have a way of sweeping all aside while their “useful idiots” swallow it up. So not sure it would do any good, maybe keep Hillary out of the WH?

Pretty good coming from men (?) who aren’t secure enough to “allow” their women to dress comfortably, who have to take an underage bride, who enjoy sex with little boys, who are so hypocritical of the west but definitely enjoy the perks of social services, who have to hide behind automatic weapons while ambushing those who have invited you into their countries. You are a scourge on the globe, how does that feel to know that everywhere you go you are looked down upon? You are what we step on daily with our soles, what we flush down our toilets, what we dispose of in our garbage cans. Like Sarsfield wrote, you have awoken a sleeping giant…….you will be toast soon!

He also used 2 starting 5′s that would often wear out the other team.

“Sense of Purpose” filmed in Tampa, directed and starring Manny James Lozano. “Long Gone” best baseball movie ever made, also in Tampa.

Above…..I had been thinking along the same lines. I don’t believe he is a very religious man. Won’t go as far as you in thinking he’s biding them against us but do feel he has an affinity towards them, having been raised in that atmosphere, also I think he still has the misconception that if he just talks to them, they will like him better. He has an agenda and he’s going to stick to it regardless of the consequences.
