War shit is sexxx-ay!
You may not know this, but the Joint Strike Fighter back-up engine program is in peril.
Seems that not all our law-makers are on board to continue funding a back-up engine system for an advanced fighter jet that we'll just have to share with those grasping Europeans, anyway. One engine should be good enough for any plane. Scott Brown and John Kerry are urging the Senate to continue funding the project, mostly because the program would create 400 new jobs in Massachusetts.
I'm for the program. Because war technology is sexy. After-school programs, home heating assistance programs, universal healthcare? Yaaaaawn. Oh, sorry. Were you bloviating about something, Senator?
I was in my happy place. Dreaming of flames and shrapnel.
