I I believe you're thinking too small, easy 7 figures...

I disagree , if you peruse the main stream media you'd swear the USA is falling apart due to some 'ism, take your pick. No we are not falling apart and the fact we had a black president with Mr. Obama points to the progress the USA has made. As an American when I see a black man I see a fellow citizen, he has to prove to be an ar$e before being pigeonholed.
I put an SIT tone in my home answering machine. The special instruction tone tells the predictive dialers that my line is not in use. The 3 rising tones are the answer then you get my voice saying leave a message. Humans leave one, the others drop off. It took about 4 weeks and we noticed a dramatic drop in calls. I can now sit down to a cocktail uninterrupted.
I want to know who in the FAA and who in Boeing is going to serve time as a guest of the state? The FAA FAILED as a watchdog and Boeing managerial incompetence has killed over 300 people. There needs to be justice for those people. The CEO of Boeing should get the first seat on the bus to a federal prison.
The FAA inspectors that didn't do their job also need some time away...
The rules changed with the WWW and most chip makers were slow to realize the full extent of the issue. Prior to ~25 years ago the large majority of PC systems were standalone desktop units, not even a modem connection. The rise of the internet further exposed the flawed worldview about the basic good of people. What a surprise. People commenting that the flaws were deliberately designed in know not what they espouse.
Anyone believing that our friends in China ever took a break under Mr. Obama has been smoking illegal substances way too long. The Chinese NEVER stopped their attacks. The difference was it was politically expedient to ignore their efforts. I visited China in 2012 and upon returning to my hotel room found that my luggage and laptop had been discretely searched, too bad the PLA didn't properly train their peeps for the "tells" I placed.
Yes, you are correct a gun is involved in every mass shooting. In case you were unaware we do have background checks in place from the ATF/FBI, I think that's probably government enough. FACT: if one has to wait for the Police to show up on average 18 people are killed, a CCW carrier and the death rate drops to 2. You have not read or you don't understand the US Constitution so I won't touch on your ludicrous militia comment. Why is it that every time a shooting occurs you're so quick to abrogate my right to keep and bear arms? The USA has many guns, you are correct, the vast majority of the owners are law abiding citizens. There are ~89 guns per 100000 citizens in the USA, I submit if guns were such a problem as described by your knee jerk comments the "slaughter" numbers would be much higher. How about you crusade on mental health funding and refrain from being a nanny.
It is apparent that the guy made a mistake and the system was not set up to make it difficult to proceed. I for one would love to see the requirements doc that was created to implement the warning system. As far as the ROW goes Mr. Trump is POTUS, get over it. He may be an idiot but he's OUR idiot.
So Airbus has a highly automated cockpit and they're finding that pilots get "lazy" and their skills at flying the plane degrade. Air France flight 447 crashed into the sea because the pilots failed to "fly" the aircraft. The Tesla system will cause driver complacency (as we have seen) and drivers, who are almost never trained to the levels required of pilots, will continue to crash. The gentleman killed was expected to be a "monitor" of the system. Unfortunately, we have seen how that really doesn't work in the real world. Now add to the mix auto manufacturers racing to get product out the door with a "good enough" mentality and we will see continued deaths and mayhem on our highways. When a team doesn't do the basics (like good product requirements) the results will be less than stellar.
Some estimates were 2M US soldiers in the invasion force. We weren't there so armchair quarterbacking the war and the dropping of the bombs is nothing but mental masturbation. The fact that the empire of Japan was training schoolchildren to attack soldiers with sharpened sticks lends lie to the thought they would have surrendered. The dropping of the two weapons saved Japan from utter annihilation, one they may not have recovered from to this day.
Are being and have been used to depress wages in the tech industry. H1B is another form of indentured servitude and are taken advantage of in the USA. You can't tell me that there are not enough good engineers in the USA to fulfill the needs of the vultures. The US Engineers are a troublesome, expensive rabble after all.
With the just good enough mantra in silicon development and the oh so excellent software, I'd rather walk than trust my life to a CPU and code developed by the lowest bidder, tested by a bunch of people to a test regime bearing no relationship to the real world. If I'm paying for a flight I want a real crew on the flight with their skin in the game just like mine. just sayin'.
