$85 million - Gone, Just , like THAT!
"A major test of the U.S. missile defence system has failed. The test was the first in almost two years and it never got off the ground.""In a brief written statement, the Pentagon's missile defence agency said the interceptor shut down due to an "unknown anomaly.""The abortive test cost an estimated $85 million US. The Pentagon has not said when it will mount is next exercise."They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

Guess how much money we spent in failures just trying to get Alan Shepard into space.About 20 tries to build a rocket that didnt blow up.
Real Bingo is there a site that shows Bush designed this missle or made it?(comments for the Bush haters that are going to swamp this)
Every Weapon System in the US inventory failed numerous times.I guess we should not try to do anything anymore because we might fail.
That pix is funny

Hey, I didn't say it was Bush's doing. Aparently Mr. Shawshank believes Bush is directly responsible for everything that has failed in his administration. Of course, the successes, weren't his doing.

Of course not,if it wasn't for Bush we would be living in paradise right now.Bush will never do anything right.I love their comments about Social security(a pyramid sceme thats going to collapse)IT IS ILLEGAL, THAT MEANS AGAINST THE LAW TO USE GENERAL FUNDS FOR SS.

You seem to forget that SS was the ONLY gov't program that made more money that it spent.
The problem was the SS pool was raided...they thought it was unstoppable and started taking money from SS and putting it INTO the general fund.
That was in the Carter days folks.BBA

Excuse me, the reason we are not living in paradise is because of terrorists.....but then again...u believe bush did 9/11 don't you........OH YEA!!! i remember.....he hijacked the planes, he ejected from his seat 3 seconds before the plane one of the towers, then he got in his limo to get another plane, right?
I knew he was bad from the beginning!!! We never should have let him make all those mass graves in Iraq! AND, he never should of caused all those people to get fat by mcdonalds...WOW!! he is just bad all over..!!!i7 950, 6GB 1333, ATI 5870, 2 RAID0

Yes micfau, thats exactly what conspircay theorists mean when they say Bush caused 9/11, is that he was physically on the plane and crashed it into the building.

Funny, how everybody blaims everything on BUSH. Oh, sorry, everything they don't like, they blame on Bush. Nothing like trying to change it yourself, you just sit here an complain about it.
He was not handed a clean slate, and is doing the best he can. Could there be someone better qualified than him? Of course. Is he in office.. yes. Did the majority of Americans vote for him.. yes.
So either you can continue complaining, or actually try to do something about it. How many letters to the senators have you written? How many offices have you held? How many town meetings do you go to?
