What Really Happened Aboard Air France 447

I’m going to look for a older article about the differences between Airbus and Boeing, it’s an article that addresses the differences between complete computer control (Airbus) and more traditional pilot control systems. The article convinced me I never want to get on-board a Airbus.

In the case of the Air France crash, splash might be more accurate, the fact that two pilots were actively flying the plane at the same time with the computer systems “averaging” their control inputs is shocking.

Groundhog Day…………..

In the coming year, 2012, both Groundhog Day and The State of the Union Address will occur on the same day.

This is an ironic juxtaposition of events.

One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.

The other involves a groundhog.

Evicted Occupiers Weigh Options, Consider Asking The Special Olympics To Add A Camping Event » Rumford Meteor

Moss Stancampiano, who has occupied the park for about a month and was helping break the camp down Thursday, confirmed that the group would not seek a permit.

“Getting a permit would label us an event,” he said. “We’re not an event. We’re not a rock show — that’s now what we’re doing. This is a movement. This is a protest. You don’t get a permit for civil disobedience.”

The Surber Rule

The Surber Rule: The economy will win the presidency for Republicans in 2012. Republicans should talk about nothing else, and should avoid troll questions by any reporter who tries to distract them.

I think I should put that on my sideboard until after the election.

When Did the EPA Jump the Shark?

Bureaucracy and Mission Creep, or The mission of creepy Bureaucrats.

If there was a time that the EPA did more good than harm, that time has passed. Every man or woman who wants a job but can’t find one, MUST vote against any candidate that will not make it their platform to eliminate the EPA.

‘Occupy’ Protesters Halt Operations at Some West Coast Ports

The left coast is the place to try this. I’m so upset that these people are blocking Chinese products from entering the US.

Opinion

The Only Thing President Obama Has Ever Been Trained For

Getting elected.                     Thats it, you expected something else?

This week, while the secretary of defense was in Hawaii, we learned that the White House vetoed plans by military commanders to recover or destroy an errant remotely piloted aircraft before the Iranians could get their hands on the high-tech device. Meanwhile, the U.S. defense budget is being savaged in Congress.

This President’s first loyalty is not to the United States. He wants to destroy this country and this can be proved by many examples over the last three years.
