It takes a lot of braking power to bring any vehicle to a full stop from 60 mph. In order to make sure the brake systems on some of our military's finest equipment does what it is supposed to do, there are test that must be run.

This is one of those test that I think would qualify as an epic fail. I am reminded of what astronaut Alan Sheppard said his thoughts were as he sat atop the first U.S. manned rocket into space in 1961.

'The fact that every part of this ship was built by the low bidder.'"

Here is another example of the lowest bidder getting paid and our tax dollars taking a beating.
