Oh, I had a friend who bought a Piper Cub and on it's second flight the engine failed due to a broken crankshaft which Continental and DoT decided was most likely cause by a prop strike which would normally require a teardown examination of the engine.
The plane had been sold with a new propeller and the DoT thought the original owner had a prop-strike, replaced the prop but did not get the internal parts of the engine examined.
The former owner agreed to pay for a rebuilt engine but did not admit to have failed in reporting a prop-strike.
Oh, my friend was doing his first night take off and the engine failed at about 500 feet and he was able to land in a farmers field without further damage to the plane. A forced landing at night usually does not go well and you are lucky to walk away from one.

I regret to say that yours is a fatalistic approach to an enourmous man-made problem.
You people need to listen to me and bring your love affair with air travel to a peaceful conclusion or else outside forces, beyond any and all control, will do it for you in the not too distant future.
I predict the latter, and not the former, will occur.
On the global scale, mankind is insignificant. Yes, we can cause local air pollution but that is it! We are like an ant trying to rape and elephant. The elephant won't feel a damn thing!
If we should detonate all of the nuclear bombs on this Earth, within one year the Earth will have returned to 99% of normal!

Then you will have no problem giving us a LINK that will back up your allegation that BP knew the anti-blowout valve was malfunctioning and had time to correct it before the explosion?
We all know the anti-blowout valve failed but I have not seen any evidence that they knew it before the explosion.
Oh, when the valve was recovered the federal government took possession of it and BP was not allowed to examine it which gave Obama total control of the evidence. BP should have been, with the supervision of the manufacturer and OSHA, allowed to examine the valve during the tear-down evaluation.
An example, when an aircraft engine fails it is returned to the manufacturer and with DoT and the airline company, watch the disassembly and examination of the parts. BP was denied this opportunity! WHY???
A link? You? What nerve. I asked you for 3 links yesterday. Still waiting, Mr "I always supply links". Start with Obama saying to military that he cared more about his career than anyone or words to that effect.
As to the BP case, for god's sake it was all over the newspapers and tv. BP pleaded NO CONTEST and paid the biggest ever punitive damages. NO CONTEST is mostly arrived at by consensus and to avoid jail time. So, Obama himself, yes, Obama himself is keeping the faulty valve in his closet.

You don't read and understand too well, do you? Best you re-read what I wrote to wojar and the reason for it.

I've made some booboos here, and have always instantly acknowledged it, as opposed to most posters here, including you. In wojar's case, it was not about that at all. Sigh.

A simple question Grand Birther. What makes you think that there were US troops or armed US personnel anywhere near Benghazi who could have saved the people in the Consulate?

What makes you think that the reason that there were not sufficient armed personnel IN the Consulate was not due to Congressional cutbacks in funding???

<quoted text>LMAO!!! Now how can I be wrong, that would be calling the Constitution wrong, sorry the Constitution is the law of the land which has jurisdiction over all three branches of the government and can only be changed by an amendment.
Obama was born a citizen of his father's nation, which makes him ineligible for citizenship in the USA, unless he be naturalized and that has not happened.
The Constitution IS the law of the land. However, it does not say what YOU think. It says what the Wong Kim Ark Supreme Court decision says, which is that every child born in the USA except for the children of foreign diplomats is a Natural Born US Citizen. Neither that decision or any other has ever said that the meaning of Natural Born Citizen is affected by the citizenship of a parent or of both parents. EVERY means every---every child born in the USA except for the children of foreign diplomats is a Natural Born Citizen.

"Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are “natural born citizens” and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether children born abroad of United States citizens are “natural born citizens” eligible to serve as President …”—- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005)[Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]

Hollander v. McCain (New Hampshire 2008) ruling:“Those born “in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” U.S. Const., amend. XIV, have been considered American citizens under American law in effect since the time of the founding, United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 674-75 (1898), and thus eligible for the presidency,

Tisdale v. Obama (Virginia federal court 2012) ruling:“It is well settled that those born in the United States are considered natural born citizens.”

Purpura v. Obama (New Jersey 2012) ruling:“No court, federal, state or administrative, has accepted the challengers’ position that Mr. Obama is not a “natural born Citizen” due to the acknowledged fact that his father was born in Kenya and was a British citizen by virtue of the then applicable British Nationality Act. Nor has the fact that Obama had, or may have had, dual citizenship at the time of his birth and thereafter been held to deny him the status of natural born. It is unnecessary to reinvent the wheel here.… The petitioners’ legal position on this issue, however well intentioned, has no merit in law. Thus, accepting for the point of this issue that Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii, he is a ‘natural born Citizen’ regardless of the status of his father.”

Voeltz v. Obama (Florida 2012) ruling:“However, the United States Supreme Court has concluded that ‘[e]very person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, becomes at once a citizen of the United States.‘Other courts that have considered the issue in the context of challenges to the qualifications of candidates for the office of President of the United States have come to the same conclusion.[The judge cites Hollander and Ankeny]

Allen v. Obama (Arizona 2012) ruling:“Most importantly, Arizona courts are bound by United States Supreme Court precedent in construing the United States Constitution, Arizona v. Jay J. Garfield Bldg. Co., 39 Ariz. 45, 54, 3 P.2d 983, 986(1931), and this precedent fully supports that President Obama is a natural born citizen under the Constitution and thus qualified to hold the office of President.… Contrary to Plaintiff’s assertion, Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874), does not hold otherwise.”

The Constitution also says that SCOTUS (and not Dufus Dale) is charged with resolving disputes as to interpretation and meaning. Of course Dufus's crayola edition omits that part

Ah, now we know how ABC found out that James Holmes was a member of the Colorado TEA Party. The IRS had unlawfully obtained a list of it's members And then gave that list to a few 'trusted' members of the Lame Stream Media!!!
That's right. The IRS had targeted "TEA Party" and "Patriot" groups for 'investigations' which made at least TWO violations of our Constitution!

Yep, and Admiral Mullen and Ambassador Pickering have refused to testify before the House committee investigating the Benghazi embassy attack. Are they afraid to testify how they did THEIR investigation? Why did they not interview Sec. Clinton?
Now I learned something along time ago that someone investigating himself, will get the answers he WANTS and the last thing Hillary wants is the truth!

Were there any US troops or armed guards within an hour or a few hours away from the Consulate who could have gotten there in time to save lives? Answer: No. IF there were troops or guards who could have gotten to the Consulate, would they have been able to do it by helicopter? Answer: No, there were none; they would have had to have driven at night at the risk of being ambushed. So, the question boils down to why there weren't sufficient armed guards at the consulate in Benghazi, and the answer is that in part the Obama administration was responsible and in part Congressional budget cuts were responsible.

Airports, Industry Challenge FAA's Towers Decision In Court
By Kerry Lynch kerry.lynch@aviationweek.com

May 08, 2013
Credit: FAA
Airport and industry executives are arguing that FAA moved to eliminate funding for 149 air traffic control towers without conducting proper environmental and safety assessments in violation of federal law and are asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in California to mandate continued funding for the program.

Dozens of municipalities have joined in a lawsuit spearheaded by the City of Spokane, Wash., in an effort to halt FAA’s plan to drop funding for the contract towers on June 15. The American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and U.S. Contract Tower Association (USCTA) have also joined the growing number of lawsuits by recently filing briefs. Other associations, including the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), are filing amicus curiae – or friends of the court – briefs in support of the lawsuits. FAA must now review and respond to the multiple filings.

FAA in March announced it would end funding for about 60% of the contract tower program as part of its effort to cut $600 million from the remainder of its fiscal 2013 budget as required under sequestration.

Yes, BP did plead no contest for some of the charges but were others charged? Now, this article was posted earlier this year and they still have not settle. WHY? Because other parties besides BP are involved!!!
Ahead of Trial, Talk of a BP Settlement in 2010 Oil Spill
By BARRY MEIER and CLIFFORD KRAUSS
Published: February 23, 2013
With a major civil trial scheduled to start Monday in New Orleans against BP over damages related to the explosion of an offshore drilling rig in 2010, federal officials and those from the five affected Gulf Coast states are trying to pull together to strike an 11th-hour settlement in the case.

Just to educate you again. Prior to the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill there was no requirement for offshore rigs to have anti-blowout preventers but after that oil spill they were required.
The fact is is that the anti-blowout preventer on the Deep Sea Horizon FAILED and BP has an active lawsuit against the Horizon of that valve.
But the Lame Stream Media will NOT report it. WHY? Because they all tow the Obama line that BP is responsible!!!

1969 Santa Barbara oil spill
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Santa Barbara oil spill occurred in January and February 1969 in the Santa Barbara Channel, near the city of Santa Barbara in Southern California. It was the largest oil spill in United States waters at the time, and now ranks third after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon .....
