    You mean people would actually have to get around by using maps and asking directions? How awful!! :eek:

    I'll bet no one would ever go anywhere any more and that would just continue to extend this fuckin' recession. God, I'm so depressed.

    Hmm, so maybe there will be some point to the European Union's "Gallileo" GPS system which has been thought to be an expensive vanity project by some people over here.

    But if we let GPSes fail, how can we lend navigational support to the troops fighting the two wars that don't make a damn bit of sense, Faux News?

    OMG the sky really is falling time time Star! You may have found your issue. Let's see... How can we blame this on the Democrat/liberal/socialist cabal? Is it another of their mind control schemes to confuse the hard-working, tax-paying public as they drive their guzzlers to the gun club? You betcha it's something like that.

    Lucky for you the mediocre Europeans are building a new system. Should be up and running about the same time the USA's system goes kaput. You won't get lost on the way to Dan's Drive Thru.

    while the libs are responsible for a lot of problems that we have in the U.S., this issue cannot be pinned on the liberals.

    This is an issue the Air Force will need to address and has nothing to do with politics, which is why it is posted under Etc., Etc.
