Oct 25th 2011 4:22PM Right on Shirley! I'm 81 this year, I served in the USAF, worked in mid-management for major corporations, and operated my own small business for over 40 years, with one or more employees (and with no college degree) My children are all successfuly employed, as most of my grandchildren are. Its a little thing called "work ethics". No one seems to know what that is any more.
I think the time period that I have lived in was one of the best this nation has ever seen, and may never see again. What a shame!
Feb 5th 2011 1:49AM Raise the number of workers? Why not outlaw collective bargaining for public workers and make them all join those of us
contributing to SS?
Jun 17th 2010 11:03AM I was stationed at Great Falls, Montona during the filming
of the original "The Thing" film. If I remember correctly, It was partially filmed at the civilian Gore Field airport across town from the base.
It should also be noted tha the "Thing" was, if I am not mistaken, James Arness; our famous Matt Dillon of Gunsmoke.
Jun 6th 2008 3:05PM Don't kid yourself about the meeting, Hillary is going to pull her voters over to Obama, not for VP, but for a seat on the Supreme Court! And they will follow, if they think she will be placed in such a position of power! She would have more power there than Pres or VP and she knows it! God help us!

Aug 11th 2007 12:00PM It appears AOL News is contributing to Hillarys campaign. When I go to AOL News Election 'o8, Fred Thompson link, meet Fred Thompsons full profile link, I get a full page blast of Hillary.
Should'nt this be classified as an illegal campaign contribution?

Jul 25th 2006 12:03AM Electric history seems to forget some of the early electric vehicle attempts. If my memory is correct, there was the Thompson electric conversion of the VW Karmen Giah, which I think was used at one time in the 60's by meter readers in the San Diego area.
Then there was the Nickel Silver Electric which was shown at the LA Fair in the late 1950's. A beautiful look-a-like of the Sunbeam Alpine convertible and station wagon version. It had 48 two cell batteries in a drawer under the floorboard, a two and a half HP electric motor on each rear wheel. 80 miles on a charge at 50 MPH. Open the hood and the trunk, let the seats down an look right thru the vehicle. Oh, yes, 18 cents to recharge overnight. Turn the key one way for forward, the other for reverse. I attempted to get a dealership, but it had dissappeared overnight after the fair. After months of looking,I heard thru sources high in the oil industry that Detroit advised Nickle Silver to drop the project if they wanted their plates in any car battery coming out of Detroit. They did, That was a shame. Oh well today, I am happy with my Prius.
