The message from the EU is clear: "Join us so if you leave we can make you suffer for it." Now, Italy cozies up to China?
Boeing tried to mount too big an engine on too small a plane because the engine used less fuel. This changed the plane's aerodynamic personality; software was their solution. But, with software come bugs. So, Boeing had a warning light option if the software got too buggy. Ethiopian and Lion Air chose not to spend the $80k extra for the warning light. That cost Boeing about $40B in stock value. Now, we see that the FAA had turned a half-blind eye.
But, many other warnings have been ignored. America is polarizing. The only things deeper than the deep pockets of the US Treasury are the Left's demands for spending. Senate Democrats silently watched the "Green New Deal" go down in flames. Cities may follow. When the going gets tough, the Right gets working while the Left gets burning hot mad.
Immigration is broken, not just in America, but everywhere. We need a proper on-ramp for good foreigners to enter any country. But, vitriol doesn't make reforms. There is a difference between vitriol and a "tantrump". Trump has achieved far more in two years than Obama did in eight. Still the Left stays vitriolic. That's their only strategy, it seems.
The Left doesn't want the Right to survive. The Right wants everyone to have the room to work and thrive. Neither will back down.
It’s not enough that contraceptives be covered in the government-mandated plan; the nuns must conform. It’s not enough you be sensitive to the effect of your words and language; you must be punished for saying or thinking the wrong thing. It’s not enough that gay marriage is legal; you must be forced to bake the cake. It won’t do that attention be paid to scientific arguments on the environment; America must upend itself with green new deals or be judged not to care about children.
Yes, America is polarizing more than ever before. Who wins? We'll see.
