    I would say this goes past the slippery slope. Swiss group given OK for “assisted suicide” of elderly for just being old, not terminally ill. This makes me sick to my stomach.

      Gee and after all oblamer has been doing to improve the healthcare situation. It’s almost as if he wants all our choices to disappear.

  6. Prince Charles, incoherent boob, tries to sound smart by calling for an end to capitalism to save the planet. No wonder his mother has not allowed him to be king yet.

      The write-up on this liquidmetal stuff is cryptic. They mention zirconium and they say it’s more brittle than other metals like steel. Low modulus of elasticity and not much deformation before breakage. Reminds me of those white (or sometimes black/gray) knife blades. Boker and Kyocera made them many years ago. They were probably just zirconia ceramics though. Stayed real sharp right up til you dropped it and it broke like a piece of glass. I don’t see how that’s gonna make the phones less breakable. Sapphire crystals (also mentioned) are the preferred material for wristwatches. Much more scratch resistant than mineral glass. Maybe they should use this stuff?

    โ€œThe Department of State Air Wing operates a large number of helicopters and airplanes relatively unnoticed all over the world,โ€ a source familiar with Air Wing operations told ABC News. โ€œMost Americans have no idea that the program exists at all…โ€

      The liberals are always screaming about separation of church and state, right?
      By mandating attendance to a specific denomination or sect they are violating the First Amendment rights of that police officer.
      “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”
