One of the greatest showcases of our military might and pride for the TAX PAYING citizens of this country....shot to sh*t (pardon the pun)!

One of the few displays of our tax dollars at work, thatís WORTH IT.....our military and national defense presented to us citizens, and its grounded!

How awful.....thanks Obama, letís be sure to keep spending billions and trillions on entitlements and foreign aid though....but gut our military and slap us TAX PAYING CITIZENS in the face!

Is it just me, or are the working class TAXPAYERS, and LAW ABIDERS the only ones suffering lately?????

I wonder how many air show could be put on with the from one Obama vacation?????

Air Force One burns quite a bit of fuel I'd have to imagine...

You know how much revenue these hosting towns and businesses will lose now that Air Shows wont be to town!

I'm actually cancelling my reservations in Pensacola this summer the week of the Blue Angel Show.

You have every right to go sit at an airport and watch planes take off and land. You can even pay to fly in one, if is really that important to you.

F-18's dont fly reconnaissance missions...space satellites, drones, etc do...

the Blue Angels flew in Pensacola July 2012...I was there.

Get a clue before trying to be a smartazz (or dumbazz in your case)

your comment -
1) first you say "The Blue Angels haven't flown in a show for at least three years".....then you say "the Blue Angels have canceled 44 out of 46 demonstrations each year for the last three years. Pensacola is their home base where they get to show off"

2) "Those fly boys are busy with reconnaissance missions over Iran and N Korea and Kenya."

3) "countermeasure missions by aiming a laser from 50,000 feet altitude to guide a missile launched from a low flying drone directly to it's target"

my response is -
1) Pensacola is an air show (as I said I was there) and "44 of 46" (as you claim) is not ALL....so what is it... HAVEN'T flown or flown A FEW

2) flyng OVER these countries (with conventional fighter jets) doesn't happen - they are NO FLY ZONES

hint: when it was with conventional jets, try looking up the U-2 and SR-71 programs...and grab you some knowledge.(to help you from the start, these are NOT FIGHTER JETS)

3) thats not a RECON mission as you stated initially - thats a STRIKE mission. And ideally its more like 35,000 ft, but whatever you THINK for the sake of argument...also because its not definitive public knowledge and its mission specific.

you tried tried to shoot down (Pun Intended) my comments by being a smartAZZ when you initiated this dialog b/w us....so yes expect to be called out for it...this time you're a jackAZZ!

THX for setting me strait....kudos on a job well done!!!

Do you have to call people names just to feel superior? Let me set you straight on a few facts.
F-18s most certainly do fly reconnaissance missions. In fact, some of the most valuable photoreconnaissance intelligence is captured by missions flying F-18s.
They also are known to deliver some of the most lethal electronic countermeasure missions by aiming a laser from 50,000 feet altitude to guide a missile launched from a low flying drone directly to it's target.
AND, the Blue Angels have canceled 44 out of 46 demonstrations each year for the last three years. Pensacola is their home base where they get to show off.
Who's the dumbazz now without a clue?

Looks to me like you engaged and then got dealt with.
Air shows and fly overs are exactly that...wowing the proud American tax paying citizens. Also a recruiting tool.
Why are you engaging in an attack against this.
And scaring the enemies is not the intent....our resources most used in warfare are not advertised or even known of yet by the general populus.(I.e. F-117 stealth fighter)
Yeah I think our taxes shouldn't be cut from air shows...it's the 1 proud thing that the tax payers deserve to see and enjoy.
Cut Obama's air force one golf vacations 1st....amongst other waste!

Good post until the end where you had to resort to calling me names before you could feel superior.
1) Check it: A DEMONSTRATION of power and skill is not for entertainment. Although I'm sure you were entertained while President Rouhani gritted his teeth and wrung his hands.
2)The no fly zone has limitations on altitude, that's why satellites are not inside the convention. The ceiling was set at 35k feet because nobody can make an accurate "strike" above 15K. Then along come those flyboys using drones. Drones are inside the no fly zone, but we'll use them with lethal accuracy because we have US supreme technology above the ceiling.
3) The drone is on a "strike" mission. The laser guides flying above the ceiling are on a recon-support mission.
Once again, the Blue Angels don't fly for your entertainment anymore. They will fly in public view only to demonstrate that their skills are beyond our enemies abilities. Mostly to entertain our enemies with consternation and intimidation. They better think twice, three times before they cross our line.

go look up ALL the WASTED spending our Fed Gov does....then talk numbers.

the bang per buck on these SHOWS as you like to reference it is well worth it compared to what your boy Obama and the lefty loonies are spending on Stimulus that isn't stimulating anything.

these SHOWS create an incredibly POSITIVE impact on the locations they take place...finacially, country pride and morale, giving the citizens a lil glimpse to the one good thing their government currently does...OUR MILITARY!

so go spit! you jumped into this conversation being a dck not knowing what you were talking about and thats all there is to it!

Go somewhere else and crawfish with your boy Obama about the Obamacare lies and wasted spending!

<quoted text> It costs a million plus dollars a day for every Blue Angel SHOW. Those costs are at the tax payer expense every day including the three days to practice before the SHOW. Those costs are four plus million dollars at tax payers expense just for a SHOW. Do the math.
Should we rely on a SHOW of force 46 times a year to recruit wannabe heroes to war? That's what we got video games for.
Enjoy your freedom at the cost of those recruits without whining about DoD finances. Have respect for the lives at stake versus the cost of entertaining you.

here is the difference between you and I...drink this Lemonaide (again...Pun Intended).........

--Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

--We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
--You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
--We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
--You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.

--We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
--You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
--We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.
--We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC, CNN and Hollywood .

--You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
--You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.

--We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
--You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

--We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
--You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
--We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.

--We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."
--I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".

--We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.

--Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.

its not anger when you call out a pig for being a pig.

your kind likes to just jump in and insult, and any rebuttle is mean, anger, racist...like the one who jumped in to shoot my comments down about having a sadned heart because our government can't keep our proudest thing going...OUR MILITARY!

Your way doesn't always have to be TOLERATED...get over it
