Missing A Chromosome Or Two

Another one? Come on. If a bunch of your colleagues have been getting in trouble for goofing off on the job, you would want to clean up your own act.

The FAA had to suspend (a bit too soft in my opinion) yet another air traffic idiot over the weekend. This clown was watching a DVD while working. Even funnier ( if you want to call it that) was he accidentally left the mic in the transmit position so that all of the pilots in the area could hear the movie, but none of them could transmit to the tower.

Obviously we have a problem in our air traffic control towers. It seems that everytime one of these folks gets caught, the FAA tells us that all is well and the problem is under control. And then Bammo!, another one bites the dust. Makes me want to go out and fly this week. Too late, already flew. Scary.

For one thing, the whole suspending of the worker is stupid. Firing without any recourse is the only way to go. These morons have lives at stake when they work. When they screw up people can die or get severely hurt.

Right now I am truly not sure about the brainpower therein. They are truly in a class by themselves.

Where is Ronald Reagan when we need him?

Housing Tax Credit Was Expensive

The first time buyers credit might have helped sell a few homes in a down period, But, did it really help the economy in the long run, and did it really help those it was intended to help? You can argue about the effectiveness of the $8, 000 tax… more

My wife and I have discussed this ideal many times. When Sarah Palin came to the fore a few years ago, many of the so-called feminists would not go to bat for her, even though she represented exactly what they had espoused all of those years. This… more
What are these clowns thinking?
