TSB:It looks like Turkey is going to spend $3.4 billion on Chi-com arms. I say Way to go Turkey! I've been buying Asian most of my life. Turkey might as well start planning for their economic future with someone who has some money to to do business with and won't turn your country into a refugee camp.
(and aren't you glad the EU didn't want you?) gwb

TSB: I feel very sorry for that poor woman who thought President Obama was surveiling her and ended up riddled with bullets. I don't think the guy is the least bit convincing when he smiles and says he's not reading our emails.
I'm having the same problem with Burger King reading my emails but I just stop in there once in awhile to let them know I'm on to them. gwb

GWB: That was such a tragedy. I think half the blame goes to overly aggressive police who see a terrorist attack behind every incident, even one that might be nothing but a confused and frightened motorist. The other half goes to the Capital (Federal) authorities and to the city of Washington DC for not using (maybe not even having?) any kind of non-lethal equipment for ending high-speed pursuits. I'm pretty sure the California Highway Patrol could show them a few ways to stop cars other than shooting the driver.
