Toyota Prius' customer loyalty had a significant effect in Polk's study. When repurchase behavior of Prius customers was not factored in, overall hybrid loyalty dropped to less than 25 percent. (Source: Toyota)
FrankWye : If you did not care about Newt, then you should not have used a video that was obviously corrupted and was trying to glorify Newt. It not only ruined its credibility, but should have warned you that it was out of context sound bites designed to deceive. Palestinians and Christians are being abused by Israel.
Palestinians do exist, have done so for over 7000 years, are the indigenous natives, and have a right to independence.
In contrast, Israelis are mostly of European origin, are largely descendents of Khazar converts who did not even come from the Mideast, (the Ashkenazim). The Hebrew tribes were historically nomadic and have no claim to any land. And the current population of Israelis are all guilty of new crimes as new illegal settlements are constantly built on land illegally confiscated from Arabs who are continually being dispossed and expelled. The crime every day is the failure of Israel to follow the Oslo Accord, the UN Resolutions, or international law. Time will never erase this continuing crime. There is no purpose or excuse for the existence of Israel. Israel not only makes Jews much less safe, but violates the basic principles of Judaism, where we are supposed to wait for the coming of the Messiah for the creation of Zion on Earth, not create is out of pride and greed, by force.
Typical Lefty strategy. Ignore the facts, attack the person. I really didn't care about Newt, the only thing that the article was saying was that what I have been saying about Palestine has been verified by the Palestinians themselves. Watch the video.
Interesting that I was watching a geneaology show tonight and the person on the show was tracing her family back to Europe, Eastern Block and Russia. The Jews were exterminated and removed from their homelands, at the time, and today no one cares. No one is crying for the return of their homelands. This has happened throughout history and like the video shows it is because solving the Palestinian problem doesn't help them. Like the Lefties of the world, they need their victims.
So, in about another 20 years there will not be any more "theives and victims". Done.
FrankWye : Anyone who would quote Newt Gingrich with "TRUMPET AND FANFARE!!!"
automatically loses. Obviously the Palestinians are many people, and their ancestors have always lived in Palestine for over 7 thousand years. They are the only indigenous people to the land now occupied by Israel.
FrankWye : False, the Palestinians have the lowest income in the world, because they are locked in concentration camps by the Israelis.
The fact the Saudis have lots of money is irrelevant. They never got involved and don't care about the Palestinians. Why should Arabs automatically have anything in common? The Palestinians are more Greek, Babylonian, Akkadian, Phoenicians etc., then they are Arab. The Palestinians have always been virtually unarmed.
FrankWye : Wrong again. The Palestinians were there first, and the Hebrew tribes coming off the Sinai invaded the Palestinians.
You do remember how the Hewbrew tribes attacked and massacred Jericho, right?
The land never belonged to the nomadic Isralites. It was always the origin of the sedentary Palestinians.
And yes, all the subsequent fighting has been over continual massacres by Israel.
Why do you think the Olso Accord failed? It was because Israel continued to illegally expell Arabs from the occupied territories, and build Jewish settlements where the Arab homes used to be. There has never been an end to the theft.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
