You mean the heritage where girls are forced into marriage right after they hit puberty? Or am I confusing that with another religion?

I'm sure private industry has no motive to lie. Why don't you check out that article? Are you afraid it might challenge some of your preconceived notions about govt?

It's highly unlikely that hiring a contractor would be cheaper than doing the job yourself. And the govt has shown itself highly capable of doing the job themselves. Medicare, Medicaid and the VA...

I wish BMW and others who are still doing it would drop their "free" maintenance already. It's not free, it's prepaid. For us who like to do our own maintenance, it totally sucks.
