    Both parties do nothing but use their positions to line their pockets and the pockets of friends and relatives. The "Good" of the country comes in last.

    You got it. Have you read or heard about the new book Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets? Might want to check it out.

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    sometimes you have to think outside the box to get inside the box .

    So the moral of the story is to make sure you never graduate from any university? Not that there isn't something wrong with the web site cuz there is big time.. but what's really wrong is for conservative news sites to just keep reaching for anything..

    I spent half an hour to try and find if these two classmates even knew each other let alone were friends. I came up empty handed other than they both went to Princeton.

    Hey..
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    Are they insinuating that CGI got the contract because of a relationship between these two ladies?

    Seems quite a stretch to me.

    I would like to know where that figure comes from, seems a bit high and I've found amounts like $170-300 mil or $394 million.

    Damn. Forgive me for generalizing a simple question. This kind of **** that is happening isn't typical (so to speak generally as to avoid confusion). LoL

    Yup! I tested the site last week, created an account there, site cannot validate my info. Took an hour to get to the end and the site message was "verification is not working currently, please try again in 24 hours."

    The front end of the site works well, it was done by a DC company, the backend is the problem area, done by CGI, where that classmate works.

    I examined the site code:

    The backend pages are well over 25,000 lines of HTML code on each page, along with about 30 referenced external javascript files. Totally sloppy spaghetti code!

    And here a good one: They are violating software licenses and actually committing piracy per US law because they are using an opensourced jQuery script and they have removed its copyright, which must remain intact per the GPL. They have edited the script, which they have a right to do so long as the copyright remains intact.

    The site is a big fail.

    I am positive that I could have done a better job for less than half of the 650 mil that has been paid so far for that site!

    Whether or not there was a direct relation between the 2 ladies... I believe the majority of our government is corrupt, or at the very least... non productive. Vote every incumbent out this year. About the only way they will get the message is if they realize they will be out of a job unless we see things moving in a positive direction.
