F-35 suddenly gets cheaper

This is one year in the mood of senior Department of Defense officials on the subject of the Lockheed Martin F-35 program.

I think it may be time for an intervention. In fact, I recognize all seven signs of an unhealthy relationship. Please, get help.

    It looks more and more like this relationship is headed for splitsville.

    Hmm, did they just take $640M off the buy?

    Anyone know where the withhold money is now?

    If indeed this is the beginning of the end, it is a year and a half too late. Somehow I have doubts that the end of this program is anywhere in the near future. DOD has a “throw money at it” mentality and don’t admit to a bad idea.
    The F-35 concept was flawed to begin with. Trying to make one common structure serve three substantially different missions is a fools quest. The structural demands/differences between a carrier based aircraft and a land based aircraft are enormous. To compound the folly LM decided to design the carrier version, which was like asking a 5th grader to write a doctoral thesis. Surprise, LM had to go back and redesign from scratch rather than subcontract to someone who has built a carrier plane like Boeing or Northrup. We the taxpayers get the bill for this arrogance.

    I was sleeping and I remember waking up and I felt really anxious and my breathing was really weird (I’ve had an anxiety attack once before when I was little and it felt like that but I felt really anxious and kept moving around). How is it possible that it was a panic attack or a panic attack? (Is an anxiety attack and an anxiety attack two different things or the same?) The information you provide here is very valuable – thank you.

    “You mean in writing policies? That’s one of the reasons we need health care reform, the insurance companies exclude people with pre-existing conditions. Which kind of ruins the whole concept of insurance, which is based on pooled risk.”
