David Brooks nails it

From Whiskey Fire:

Very few people have the luxury of being freely obnoxious. Most people have to watch what they say for fear of offending their bosses and colleagues. Others resist saying anything that might make them unpopular.

But, in every society, there are a few rare souls who rise above subservience, insecurity and concern. Each morning they take their own abrasive urges out for parade. They are so impressed by their achievements, so often reminded of their own obvious rightness, that every stray thought and synaptic ripple comes bursting out of their mouth fortified by impregnable certitude. When they have achieved this status they have entered the realm of Upper Blowhardia.

Wow. Best description of Longmont's most virulent hate-blogger I've ever seen. Gotta hand it to the wingnuts, when one of them gets it right they nail it. Thanks Dave!

Small Town, Small People

Longmont really is a small town.

And the smallest people live in the biggest houses.

Hypocrisy speaking

Seen recently at the Times-Call 'website'

Put in context of the action in the ongoing national budget crisis the President has a Constitutional fiduciary duty to present a statement of the cost of his administration of the governance of this country. No withstanding total control of the government the Democrat's dominance has failed to appropriate the ways and means to sustain the concept of freedom in America. For someone constantly lauded by the media for his brilliance and high-mindedness who never seems to stop talking about bipartisanship and unity, President Obama never fails to be petulant, petty, hyper partisan and, most hypocritical when it comes to withholding funds for the soldiers Obama himself ordered into combat. At a time when our nation is at war it is unfortunate anyone would have, much less demonstrate, less than honorable and professional reasons for compromising the safety of American fighting men and women in harm’s way. Perhaps the shock of reality inherent in Shalini Schane's letter opened the President's eyes. The greatest honor any American can bestow on any fallen American Soldier is to personally honor fallen American soldiers for their ultimate sacrifice and thanks the soldier for this gift of life with freedom. The death and the act of regular acknowledgement by all citizens reconfirm the Union or social compact government has with the governed to maintain liberty. That union was being split by BO insisting at the opening of his speeches “we will move forward together, or not at all, for the challenges we face are bigger than party and bigger than politics”; and the practices of his Administration. Now an American Longmont Mom and a school teacher who organized the trip to DC just called his bluff and may have changed the course of history, if he gets the message.

What sublime bullshit.


This wild-eyed loudmouthed loon has constantly attacked teachers as the core of the economic problem, but as long they're bashing a black president, this blabbering bonehead loves them. Shows how mercurial and fickle the far-right is. As long as you're attacking, attacking, attacking you're okay. Let up for a split second and you're the devil.


Fetid-breathed fool.

Panic in the Tower, Chaos in the Sky

From INews – The Rocky Mountain Investigative News Network:

Colorado air traffic safety concerns soar

Near mid-air collisions in Colorado may be triple FAA’s public disclosures



Image courtesy of INews
I-News has analyzed 10 years’ worth of federal air safety reports and found that Colorado’s air traffic controllers reported more serious safety concerns last year than they had in the previous five years combined.
We then compared these reports – which are made to NASA – with data from the Federal Aviation Administration. We found the number of near mid-air collisions in Colorado since 2000 may be as much as three times higher than the FAA publicly reports. FAA officials say the NASA reports – which are anonymous – are not as precise as their own.
The near misses and dangerous decisions are sometimes blamed on inexperienced trainees or overtaxed veterans, according to the NASA reports. Concern is likely to mount as a

Air Safety Plummeting?
wave of controller retirements is expected to peak in Colorado next year.
Search and read the actual NASA air safety reports for yourself: NASA Safety Database

If you have a Colorado air traffic safety story to share, add your comment below or contact info@inewsnetwork.org.

Great, so the FAA has been (let’s use a nice word) ‘fibbing’ about how many ‘serious’ (as in could have caused a crash with loss of life) safety incidents there have been the past few years.
So maybe St. Reagan’s firing of air traffic controllers wasn’t such a great idea.
With lots of experienced controllers gone, (obviously) less-skilled ones were hired and after little time on the job were called ‘experts’ – when they clearly weren’t.
Now these wannabe Mavericks are teaching other controllers and the incidence of near-misses and near-disasters is soaring.
Golly. Letting the market control things sure doesn’t seem to be working out for the consumer. At least from the safety standpoint – and after all, isn’t that the bottom line? Getting there alive?

Dear FRChicken

Come see me in person, or are you not man enough?

You're filth and all those that help you are too.
