    I also forgot to mention that one of the 1st. F-15A’s that rolled off the assembly line had 1,000,000 hours on both original engines and this was in 1979!

    P&W came and examined them and had the USAF pull the aircraft for study to see why this aircraft & engines had not needed to be overhauled at all since it was rolled off the assembly lines.

    I was a jet engine Mechanic (USAF 78-80) and the Pratt & Whitney T100 engines used in the F-15/16s could go for at least 1,000 hours before we pulled them for major overhaul. If we had been at war the hours for overhaul was pushed to 1,500-2,000 hours because the engines were that good (Parts were made of Titanium, Silver & Gold)and they use even better engines today these aircraft not to mention the newer aircraft since then.

    These look very similar to the first F-18s they were based off the same Russian aircraft as this new Chinese fighter. They had lots of problems with there landing gear, weapons capacity, range and there ejector seats.

    I say there about 10+ years away from debugging this fighter!

  • (CNN Money) Problem: Most Americans don't believe the unemployment rate is 5%

    I travel from Alabama through Mississippi then to Memphis, Tennessee and back several times a year. Over the last 4-5 years I have noticed the number of houses that are up for sale or just abandoned has increased exponentially each year.

    Over the last year the number has increased from several hundred to 400-600 houses and that is mostly along the I-20/Alt72 Highway and this number does not include the number of business that have closed up.

    I live here in the North Alabama area and about the only thing keeping the economy from collapsing is the Redstone Arsenal/NASA Federal employment(54,000)and the Corporations that support it. If the Government cuts continue our economy would fall like a rock! The number of houses in this area in the same condition has quadrupled over the last year along with the number of small/med/large business's. Employment is stagnant unless you work in one of the above mentioned areas. If you don't then you have to try taking a job waiting tables, mowing grass or something that pays $10.00 or less per hour. I truly believe the real factual unemployment is around 47% which beats the Great Depression's 36% by a large margin!

    I hate to be the one to burst your bubble!
    The Israeli's tried coed Combat Units just before the Yom Kippur War and those units that had been integrated fell apart and most were either captured or killed.

    As to meeting the same “standards”, have you heard about the two FEMALE Rangers who were given around six(6)retries as well as help so they could pass and become Rangers.

    Ask the Rangers what they think about women in combat units.

    When I was in the USAF under Carter they integrated women into some of our noncombat support units and ONLY 1 woman out of the dozen or so could do their job and she was the exception (Irish girl from Minnesota who was tough as nails, what an Irish temper. Most would just flirt with some of the guys and get them to do it for them!

    The Muslim/Socialist President and his “Progressive” allies will do as they have done before, just lower the standards so that any woman could just walk right in.

    Allah is not GOD! he is the Arabic Moon god and his wife Ishtar is the Sun goddess whose son Mohamed was given the Koran by an angel (Satan) so that Satan could destroy Christianity and the Jews.

    This is why the Muslim flags have a Crescent Moon (Allah) and a Star (Ishtar) on them.

    I attend a small Baptist Church of about 80-100 here in North Alabama and I pity anyone who comes into our Church with a weapon of any kind. I think that half or more of the congregation carries a handgun.

    I personally carry a High-Point 45 while my wife has a S&W .380 pistol.

    Do a search entitled “Song of the South” and it will come up then. We have two copies of the movie on DVD and my kids love it. It was banned here in the US but is the #1 Disney movie for sale in the world. It has been for sale in Europe, South America and Asia for years.

    I grew up with Uncle Remus with my Mother reading us stories out of an original print that her grandmother had bought and passed down to her and then to my older brother.

    God Bless the South!

    My Grandfather was one of the smartest men I have ever known yet he had to drop out of school in the sixth grade during the depression.

    One of his greatest sayings was “that some people were educated beyond there intelligence” He stated that common horse sense was better than most peoples fancy degrees.

    I agree that IQ test are not worth ten cents. I was tested in the twelfth grade and had a IQ of 146. I thought that anyone who has a good memory can fake out most IQ test very easily.

    And by the way my kids are smarter than both my wife (126) and me. I have told my kids not to let themselves be tested since it can cause them to become swell headed and think that they are smarter than other people just because of a set of numbers.

    We tell them that common sense is worth more than gold in this world today!

    I have seen reports that indicate that the State Department (Hillary) was giving the Rebels the Javelin Antitank / Smart Mortar System which is Top Secret and some of the Russian's newest MANPADS that were captured from other sources as part of a deal that when the Rebels won they would return them.

    The CIA was there to recover ALL of the weapons that the State Dept. had sent them so that they could send them to Syria.

    If this is true then that is a very big violation of American Law and TREASON on the part of the Hitlery Beast and Obuma including anyone else who was in on it.

    The Javelin System is a Fire & Forget weapon that never misses! It can be fired like a Mortar or as a Antitank weapon and it can even take out low flying Helicopters.

    The new Russian MANPAD is also extremely good and can knock out our Helicopters & Planes. Which means that if a rescue had been sent in they would have been shot down with American & Russian weapons given to them by the State Dept. The Obuma did not want another Blackhawk down scenario being played out just before the election so he let them die so he could win his second term!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The US was Japan's #1 trading partner before the war. Germany and France were each others #1 trading partners before both world wars. Economics is not the reason for war: politics/ideology/greed/power is the main reason for war all down through history.

    This article is a load of PC junk!

    They stated in the article that there were “Scots, Celtic, Viking and Irish” in Scotland. Th Irish are Gaelic Scots who happen to be Celtic, and there are Gaelic Scots in Scotland who came from Ireland who are the same race. There are also Pict's in Scotland who are Celts as well.
    Then you have the Norse in the north of Scotland who also trace there ancestry to the Celts.

    Whoever wrote this article didn't do there homework.

    As was posted above the Celtic people stretched from Ireland to as far away as the steppes of Russia and from Asia Minor (Turkey) to Norway. They are one of the oldest known races in the world.

  • Just another reason to dump Progressive Insurance

    Southron Patriot to surfer
    My Insurance Agent put me into a Progressive plan.

    I ran over something that fell from the back of a truck and it exploded under the right front end of my wife's van. it messed up the transmission and the right front axle/bearings.

    The Mechanic told the agent that he should just right it off since the front end was warped and that even the transmission mounts were messed up.

    The Progressive agent never told me any of this just that they were going to put in a new transmission and fix the axle.

    I tried six (6) times to meet with him about the van and he always found something that interfered with the time.

    I found out later that he had them rebuild the transmission and try to straighten the front end.

    I ended up putting in two whole new axles before I got rid of the truck.

    I have told everyone I can not to buy Progressive ever!
    They are the biggest con artist out there!

    Don't ya’ll understand that the RNC does not care about the White House, they just want the House & Senate. That's why the have rigged the primaries so that there “Great” candidate can run a lackluster campaign, then lay down and play dead so that Obuma can walk right back into the White House!

    Lincoln was a Tyrant and a Atheist who used just enough phrases from the Bible to sound Christian. The South did not start a Insurrection against the Federal government but instead tried to leave the US and they started their own government!

    Lincoln was the Poster Child for Adolf Hitler. The Nazi’s studied Lincoln’s war against the South to learn how to overthrow a government yet seemingly keeping the people from knowing they were destroying their own government.

    Show me one instance were a Southerner tried to take over the US government! You can’t because it never happened!

    The deaths of nearly 750,000 people and the dislocation of nearly 500,000 more rest solely on Lincoln’s head! He may not of killed as many people as Hitler but his war plans were the blueprint that Hitler used in Germany and against other countries.

    You have to remember these are the same idiots who during the DC Sniper period went around confiscating the weapons of everyone who was on the list of people who had purchased weapons in the DC and surrounding MD areas.

    They didn’t care about the “Rights” of the people back then and they don't care now!

    My whole family here in North Alabama are in construction and most have had to get out of the home building business since these criminals will work four less than min. wage to get a job thus forcing real Alabamians out since they can't pay there bills or support there families on that.

    On top of that the Criminals are the worst workers when it comes to quality. If they build something it will just fall apart or else it is so off square that it looks just plain BAD!

    I live in Decatur, Alabama and we have been eating them for years. My Grandfather told me that a old Cherokee Indian with whom he hung around with as a boy learning how to make a Bow and Arrows etc. told him that the giant crayfish were great to eat and that his people had been trapping them for a long, long time.

    I have personally seen them get nearly 12”. They are very fast and you have to have a trap/net to catch them. There very good boiled.

    This may be a secret to the Scientist but not to those who grew up around the Tenn. River here in Alabama!
