We should also completely disarm Air Force One.

Always an ignorant freeper with BDS

As with the poor, the BDSers will always be with us. Ugh.

it still amazes me the stupidity of the American people who voted for this great stinking turd.

I would think that there would be a real uprising against this and a major protest among pilots!

What are you talking about? The FFDO program was in place. The current administration is implementing a policy to slow down the program and investigate current officers over petty offenses. This may lead to a suspension in the program and hopefully not ridding of it.

Explain how this has anything to do with Mineta?

YOU ARE AN IDIOT. Blame GW for something Obama does? You are dumber than a box of rocks and I am being nice. I feel sorry for kids having to be taught by a teacher like you, with no common sense.

It took forever to get going and was operated with a LONG waiting list. My point is that the entire fleet would be armed by now if the President hadn't let Mineta drag his feet. It would be a fait accomplis.

The pilots should all go on strike until the decision is reversed.

I’m flying on the 23rd. with an airline I don’t like, changing planes in Dallas. Hope the pilots are armed!

Instead, I think they’ll look for another hole in our defenses and use it.

It is much better strategy to be prpared for all contengencies rather than attempt to second guess terrorists. Arm the pilots. Arm natural born citizen passengers.

No, I'm holding GW accountable for something he did.

LOL, my kids started calculus by the age of twelve. You can read an example of their writing here. They were twelve and thirteen at the time they wrote it.

He had something else to say about 0bama and his followers, too.

1 John 4:1-6

Especially vss 5-6
They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.
6We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth [Holy Spirit] and the spirit of falsehood [Satan].

To: ClearCase_guy

It’s becoming clear that he is purposefully creating these situations in order to effect “Change” — change to a Communist nation when he declares martial law and the suspension of our Rights... I see something happening ala Chavez. He may not be able to completely suspend the laws, but with everything in place now (ACORN money, voter fraud, etc...) it looks as if it will be rather “easy” for him to make the appearance of following the laws when in reality it’s just a big sham (so many examples of this ALREADY).

It’ll be interesting to see exactly how they attempt to accomplish this though. I only pray that not too many people will be hurt during this upheaval - and of course, I pray DAILY that Obama and his minions will FAIL in their attempts to destroy this nation...

"which is why he (Bush) maintained the assault weapons ban"

Bush let it expire and did not renew it. Obama is pursuing renewing it. You really are ignorant or dishonest.

God forbid if there is another terrorist attack on our soil or via an airlines. If there is, Obama will own it by his weakening our the WOT, our military and now this.

Yes, Obummer "will own it," but how will they use it? Remember "Never allow a crisis to go to waste."

You posted he kept it. You were wrong. It expired in 2004. Guess you missed that with your head buried in your Calculus books. Get over it, GW is not POTUS. Obama is. Obama is removing this armed pilot program and Obama is going to reinstate an assault weapons ban. I know you Carrie, you are one of Ron Paul BDS supporters.

You might ask the pilots..The pilots should make this public if this Muslim did this or is going to do this..I would say if you decide to go out into town you would be safe since most of us Texans are armed..Just if you do go out make sure you stay away from the Muslim areas..that includes the black area which most of them are claiming to be Muslim..

Keeping up with all things is getting tougher by the day, sometimes people err in their posts. It's not intentional nor is it stupid, we all make mistakes. Calling someone dumb as a box of rocks for it is unworthy of FR

Bush certainly deserves a certain amount of criticism and to do so isn't necessarily BDS, it seems some are a bit hypersensitive to it though. After all, don't we review history to discover our mistakes, talk about them then learn from them?

In the end, we're all on the same side, I hope. :)

Every day another step to make America weaker. The Flight Deck Officer program was great. Now it is gone. It makes the skies safer for terrorists!

These are NOT accidents or stupidity. He is destroying America on purpose!

“Let’s make it easy for the terrorists!”

Way back when Hussein began his campaign against Hillary, et al., I believed he was a sleeper terrorist. Seemed he was just biding his time until he could find power and destroy America quietly from the inside. Sounds like he’s just doing his sinister job for Allah.

Yes we have overlooked another hole. It’s called “The Border” and it’s been known for years that non-mexican foreigners (including the middle east) have snuck in through the southern borders, mainly. Estimated thousands over the years. And disappeared into the country.

We need magnetic stickers that can be removed when we park our cars because the 0bama followeres will smash car windows or key the paint.
