You just wait and see Gilligan. I am writing letters to every congressman I can think of. I will protest Holloman out front of their main gate with signs until they stop this noise. How do these warmongers expect anybody to sleep at night. They can play with all of their big toys in the middle east and not here. I pay taxes dammit.
Make sure you call the three news stations in Alb, and they can send a news crew to cover your 1 man protest outside the main gate,
Let us all know the time so we can watch your actions vice your words.

Swearing must make it really important, now i am sure they will close Holloman, they must not know who you are.

The last thing we need here is noise at night. I filed a complaint this morning. I will not tolerate this. The military has no business in this town flying at night.
The Military was here before you, you must be an transplant, not a native.

Darn those pilots, they went supersonic too soon, they landed before Carls Jr. is finished, guess they have to go back up and fly around some, maybe more Booms.

I just heard another one of those nasty booms. I will put a stop to this in the morning.
Having a car related to Sonic Booms how?

So unemployed or employed is determined by their grammar?

Darn, i forgot to drive by the base today, Sorrry i missed you and your sign, did you call the news stations so they can get you on the news, and then the base public affairs will have to issue a statement about there right and the federal law that allows them to perform training missions to maintain readiness so people like you can perform your freedom of speech via that pilots who makes your life so miserable, so have you?

Poor pitiful baby! Here is the web page you can go to that will show when to expect to hear sonic booms (right hand side of page)
That should help you be able to schedule when you can leave town.
Let them rip boys.

Thankfully we don't have more weather around here, these arrogant SOB's would be dancing in circles picketing God because the thunder was bothersome. Children raising children, geez this gets old. Hopefully the Lord will return soon!

Everything is classified covert, we'll never know. Basically because most don't want to know.

When was the last time US military planes were deployed to defend the US?
There are 2 answers. The first is that mainly ANG wings fly patrols post 9-11. The answer you seem to be looking for is 9-11-2001 and it was a miserable failure. NEADS could not seem to find flight 11. Langley AFB sent their aircraft out to sea and ANG Otis sent theirs south of Long Island. But that is what happens when the only experience our pilots have is fighting antiques. The sound of sonic booms seems to be the closest they come to actually defending our skies. It's a good thing no one is attacking us with real combat pilots.

We the USA have the best military both equipped and trained, No thanks to people like you...

Training during peacetime allows the military to be better prepared for actual needs.
