Re: “More Planes!

Even the inanimate world protests when these planes fly over at low altitude. The chorus of car alarms (which does not arise from my vacuuming) is less than charming. I'm sure that if I could hear what I was thinking, I would be shocked.

But, of course, it is selfish of us to complain if it will harm certain car dealers' profit margins. After all, we all know the sound of freedom is really ka-ching ka-ching.

Re: “Guest Opinion

For what it's worth, I am also a veteran (of the Korean War.) How does that say anything about the argument? The "sound of freedom" some purport to hear is the sound of indebtedness to the Chinese, the Saudis, the banksters. At $31,000 an hour to fly this weapons system which has no utility for the foreseeable future it is pure boondoggle. Spending those billions for development, procurement, and modification at this time of national economic crisis is like the behavior of a drunken sailor spending money borrowed from the shipboard loan shark to pretend to a manliness he cannot attain any other way. He can bluster and strut but the only person he almost fools is himself.

While some car salesmen and developers, those who wish to suck some of the money (not easily done) from their pockets (like fund raising university presidents,) who live in the foothills over which the planes will not likely fly expect to profit, the rest of us will see whatever equity we have left in our homes drop ever so much more. If you believe their pap about how much it will help the economy, I have a plane to sell you.
