Re: “Guest Opinion

While we are at it there is ANOTHER very SERIOUS and EXTREMELY dangerous issue we have to address here.
WE have a lot of incoming and out going aircraft constantly over OUR neighborhoods. These aircraft are LOADED with PEOPLE and EXPLOSIVE jet fuel...AND there coming and going into TIA (Tucson International Airport). A DISASTER awaiting to happen..When these things CRASH it is CATASTROPHIC!! They are over POPULATED areas of TUCSON..Ever give that a serious thought, folks?? We HAVE BEEN LUCKY...Over worked, poorly trained and so on...IT CAN HAPPEN HERE... WHY is this airport with it's flightpaths over TUCSON neighborhoods ALLOWED to continue...THIS ALSO needs to be addressed!
We also have HELICOPTERS buzzing all over TUCSON, DPS, MEDICAL and whoever...NOISE!!!! Live near a hospital and have your PEACE and QUIET and windows rattled by these then YOU KNOW what I mean...There have been a lot of copter crashes in the news recently...Scares the heck out of me...
The military is taking over TUCSON? OK, what did I miss??? Who BUILT all the HOUSES next to, around and in the flight paths of DMAFB??? WHO was STUPID enough to BUY a HOUSE in that area?? You were that STUPID??
DID I MISS SOMETHING??? Was DM just suddenly DROPPED into it's CURRENT LOCATION, like over night?? WHO got RICH off all these houses built around an ACTIVE AFB??
FORCING there WAYS and CONTROLLING TUCSON... WHAT a JOKE some of you are...Get off your bongs and get real. The USAF is providing TUCSON'S economy a lot...AND the WAY this wonderful economy is in THANK GOODNESS there here, NOW. Let's get rid of DMAFB and ALL ASPECTS of it's involvement and while were at it Raytheon has got to go..THERE economic benefits ain't needed, right... And all you WILL GLADLY pick up the LOST REVENUES, increased TAXES, etc...???
Hey, I crave PEACE and wish WE DIDN'T need a MILITARY....KEEP on DREAMIN, people it is JUST ain't GOING happen..GIVE PEACE A CHANCE..great concept in an UTOPIAN Society...Remember my fellow Tucsonians, YOU live in State and CITY where ALMOST every other resident is walking around with a REAL LIVE LOADED gun on there side!!! AND THAT DOESN'T SCARE YOU??
Oh yeah aircraft flying around with NUKES on board...Another pathetic fantasy..
AGAIN show me this PROOF on how USAF is in control of Tucson, Calling all the shots? When ALL the nimrods elected to office in this city are clueless on how to make TUCSON WORK...Rio Nuevo?
Piss POOR streets ( getting across town in this day and age an ABSOLUTE outdated nightmare). HOW many EMPTY commercial properties? Ball teams leaving, Gem and Mineral THREATENING to leave if they don't get THERE WAY and ON AND ON.. ( All MILITARY created issues I'll bet for further control of TUCSON I'll bet ya!)
Get rid of the Air Force cause of noise, etc...Then TIA issues SHOULD be the NEXT item, SERIOUSLY, HELICOPTERS, seriously...TRAIN traffic...NOISE....gone, seriously!!
If the MILITARY "control" of TUCSON is SO BAD..It MIGHT in your best interest TO MOVE really soon before THEY GET YOU ALL!!
G E T R E A L. Noise...It is going to happen...SIRENS...Idiots with LOUD car stereos...LOUD cars exhausts...MOTORCYCLES....the BAND practices at U of A ( people HAVE called and complained ABOUT THIS ISSUE!!) and so on...I can AND DO LIVE with it and I HAVE A HECK of A LOT of OTHER much more SERIOUS issues in my life...And a lot you should be worrying about TUCSON'S economic future and viability.. Thank goodness that there is DMAFB, the 162nd at TIA and so-on...The world AIN'T perfect, we AIN'T perfect and there are a lot of folks out there that would would wish to do us wrong for what ever reason...It's JUST THE WAY IT IS!!!!
