One, why did he White House Military Office decide to spend all the damn money to do this in the first place? I mean, if they're so concerned about pollution(two F16s and a jumbo jet?), and saving money(you know what it costs to run each of those per hour?), WHY? And, if you're going to do something like this in New York City, how could the people involved be so effing stupid as to actually forbid letting people know what was going on?
An FAA spokesman, Jim Peters, defended the event, calling it "a planned, pre-approved military flight over New York to take photos." He said it was "pre-coordinated with everyone involved, including the city."
Except that an FAA memo specifically warned officials that if they released information about the flights to the public or the press, they'd be violating the law.
It even cited a specific statute.
And don't you just love the 'military flight' being used over and over? Kind of like they think saying that will cover for the idiocy of this?
Globular Warming hypocrisy and lies, a twofer.
And the flu scare is really all the Evil Republican's Fault; was there ever any doubt?
Just as a general "Should I?" on a tetanus shot I called the doctor's office yesterday; for some reason, when asked when I last had one, the answer "Uh, a fair while back, I'm not sure" didn't satisfy them. So after work I an supposed to get a needle in the arm. Which just makes me so happy. Sore, but the swelling's down further and no sign of nastiness. And since work involves typing, that helps. So to work I go.
