You know, those ‘powerful’ airplanes that they used to build in the 1950’s. Apparently they don’t make them like that anymore. It’s a lost art???

The simple fact of the matter is that the F-35 and F-22 are ridiculously overpriced and unnecessary because our pilots smoke all our potential enemies in what they already have, at a quarter of the price. While Russian pilots are picking rutabagas, and Chinese pilots are being politically indoctrinated, our pilots (and our allies) are in the classroom, the simulator and the cockpit. We do not need to throw money at new toys. We need to keep throwing money at our pilots.

You must have gone to trump University.

I’m going to venture a guess…. that you live south of the Mason-Dixon line. And you got some married cousins in the woodpile. What ever floats your boat.

(March 29, 2012)

The need for reassurance that this epic boondoggle “might” actually work someday is so absurd that I am left speechless.
