The nearest airport around here is just a small regional airport. It's usually just small single engine planes and the occasional private jet.

Our old house used to be right below the on-approach area for O'Hare Airport. Not only did we have shit tons of military planes fly over but massive passenger and cargo planes as well lol.

We always see Jets because they practice over the city, but most of the cargo planes and B-25s fly over one of the R/C track here about 10 miles from me. Pretty cool to see about 5 of them in formation lol.

There are very few air-worthy B-25's still around. I highly doubt there is 5 of them in formation unless it's an extremely popular air show lol.

Well I should say more of a hybrid of the b-25 that they fly. The airforce base here likes to rebuild older war planes for show or cargo. And pretty much upgrade whatever they build to todays standards. So yeah, no where close to a true B-25 lol.

If your
asking why people aren't getting on, it's because people aren't
getting on. That seems pretty simple lol. It used to be everybody would
be on ts and not the forum. Now it's the other way around. I haven't
been on TS because nobody has been on ts. And if everybody is thinking
like that then nobody will be on ts.

If that makes sense scratch

The Nail In the Coffin speech given by Ron Paul: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mjcvql6By4s



95 Million people voted in the last American Idol Vote...How many of them even thought once about politics..or corruption in politics...But no...Most people are told how good everyone is..or listen to a particular channel as to why they should hate people who are on the other channel...While freedoms are slowly degraded away..chipped at with every new bill...Under these phony wars...People believing they need to be groped to feel safe on airplanes..Something that if you did it to someone outside the airport you would be put in jail.

"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy"

-James Madison, fourth president of the United States.

Listen to those words.

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Its the way the world works. Just gotta hope someone that has some real heart into it gets shit semi back in order. But thats a lot to ask. lol Hoping Ron wins in 2012, I know I'll be voting for him. Obama ain't bad but hes a place holder.

Just been reading the TSA (Transportation Security Agency)'s website and I came across their new SPOT program. They've taken the idea I've liked..and made it worse than what they were doing. I am ok with them sending in behavioral experts as well as dogged...something that doesnt invade people's privacy nearly as much. Then I found this:

“Behavior detection officers are screening passengers for involuntary physical and physiological reactions that people exhibit in response to a fear of being discovered. TSA recognizes that an individual exhibiting some of these behaviors does not automatically mean a person has terrorist or criminal intent. Individuals exhibiting specific observable behaviors may be referred for additional screening at the checkpoint to include a handwanding, limited pat down and physical inspection of one’s carry-on baggage.”

So now...You can't look nervous when your balls are being groped by a 400 pound hairy guy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile in the Orwellian 1984 America:
The new, free app for IPhones and Droids is called "TipSubmit". Here's how it works. Open the app and follow the prompts. Type in the who, what, where, when and why! Everything investigators would need to crack a case. "They can just simply give a location of where that person, or that crime is likely occurring, or at, and it'll plug in the coordinates for you," said Det. Otero.


People spying on other people..and handing it directly into the police digitially...All these secret spying programs started after 9/11 with the passing of the Patriot Act. They've basically been opening up spying hotlines. I remember an interview where some librarians said that the federal government came into their libraries and demanded to get the names of people who went there and what books they checked out.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heres a fun one: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1390717/Ferrari-owner-driven-court-FBI-agent-seizes-vehicle-investigation-takes-test-spin-smashes-refuses-pay-750-000-damages.html


The FBI officiers tracked down and found the guy's stolen Ferrari. The FBI agents decided to hop in the car and give it a spin...and proceeded to wreck it..and now refuse to pay him for it..That is one of the most expensive Ferrari's made btw.

One more thing I've just seen.




That is an incredible ionospheric disturbance over South East Asia. (Dont know the cause, many would say HARP), but what it has done is immediately turned Super Typhoon Songda or Chedeng as it is know in the Phillipines from towards the Phillipines, and is taking it directly toward Japan on almost a direct hit to the Fukushima power plant.

The effects...relatively unknown...It could throw storm surge into the crippled plant and make a bigger radiation mess in an around the plant on the ground. It would take a bit more radiaton into the air..likely wouldnt cause a huge diffrerence for us...but the 180-200 mph winds could damage the plant further.

For once the Texas legislature did something I could be proud of...And the government pressured them and they folded like the weak people that they are.

http://blogs.star-telegram.com/politex/2011/05/bill-targeting-tsa-groping-in-texas-airports-dead-key-senator-says.html


Very sad. Of course the guy with CIA connections killed it. He will NEVER be my Senator when the current one leaves.
