Heavily congested public air routes full of private planes and helicopters probably have less than 1% of the mid air collisions that our military has and they got all those billions of dollars in fancy equipment.

Check the frequency of crashes.

It's true. The air force has the public sector beat on crashes and mid air crashes when in comparison they have the skies to themselves compared to the congestion of civilian air routes packed with private planes and helicopters and they have no where near the equipment and skill as the Air Force does to avoid crashes.

thats an uninformed comment ...the aircraft involved are far more dangerous to fly and operate
period
go to an air show or watch the crashes on utube
do those aircraft look like 757s?

of course shuttles don't blow up either

OK ...now whos' money is it again?

Florida Democrat U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson wants Americans to help him block Congress from confirming the Chairman of the Federal Reserve to his second term unless he hands over documents relating to the bailouts of financial institutions, including the rescue of Bear Stearns.

In the "Unmask the Fed" campaign, Grayson calls on constituents to sign petitions demanding that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke "come clean" before senators re-confirm his appointment to the helm of the Federal Reserve.

Grayson wants access to the Bear Stearns rescue paperwork as well as the details of which financial institutions received $1.2 trillion in bailout money, how much each institution received, and what was promised in return. He's also seeking Fed documents that discuss the Bank of America/Merrill Lynch merger, transcripts of Open Market Meeting minutes, and the terms and conditions of Fed transactions not reflected in balance sheets from the past three years.

"[T]he Senate should know who got the $2 trillion the Federal Reserve has lent out over the last two years," the petition reads. "Only then will the Senate be able to judge whether he should keep his job."

NEW YORK (TheStreet)-- Even as Oliver Stone shoots scenes from his Wall Street sequel in Manhattan's financial district, hedge-fund manager Raj Rajaratnam, one of the nation's wealthiest people, was arrested Friday on charges of insider trading.

Rajaratnam, founder of the Galleon hedge fund, is alleged to have conspired with six other people to make illegal trades -- some of which involved shares of Google(GOOG Quote) and IBM(IBM Quote)-- that brought in $20 million in profits, according to prosecutors in the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York.

well gee wally ....maybe you should work at best buy
A man trying to pay a fee using $2 bills was arrested, handcuffed and taken to jail after clerks at a Best Buy store questioned the currency's legitimacy and called police.
According to an account in the Baltimore Sun, 57-year-old Mike Bolesta was shocked to find himself taken to the Baltimore County lockup in Cockeysville, Md., where he was handcuffed to a pole for three hours while the U.S. Secret Service was called to weigh in on the case.
Bolesta told the Sun: "I am 6 feet 5 inches tall, and I felt like 8 inches high. To be handcuffed, to have all those people looking on, to be cuffed to a pole – and to know you haven't done anything wrong. And me, with a brother, Joe, who spent 33 years on the city police force. It was humiliating."
After Best Buy personnel reportedly told Bolesta he would not be charged for the installation of a stereo in his son's car, he received a call from the store saying it was in fact charging him the fee. As a means of protest, Bolesta decided to pay the $114 bill using 57 crisp, new $2 bills.
As the owner of Capital City Student Tours, the Baltimore resident has a hearty supply of the uncommon currency. He often gives the bills to students who take his tours for meal money.
"The kids don't see that many $2 bills, so they think this is the greatest thing in the world," Bolesta says. "They don't want to spend 'em. They want to save 'em. I've been doing this since I started the company. So I'm thinking,'I'll stage my little comic protest. I'll pay the $114 with $2 bills.'"
Bolesta explained what happened when he presented the bills to the cashier at Best Buy Feb. 20.
"She looked at the $2 bills and told me,'I don't have to take these if I don't want to.' I said,'If you don't, I'm leaving. I've tried to pay my bill twice. You don't want these bills, you can sue me.' So she took the money – like she's doing me a favor."
Bolesta says the cashier marked each bill with a pen. Other store employees began to gather, a few of them asking, "Are these real?"
"Of course they are," Bolesta said. "They're legal tender."
According to the Sun report, the police arrest report noted one employee noticed some smearing of ink on the bills. That's when the cops were called. One officer reportedly noticed the bills ran in sequential order.
Said Bolesta: "I told them,'I'm a tour operator. I've got thousands of these bills. I get them from my bank. You got a problem, call the bank.' I'm sitting there in a chair. The store's full of people watching this. All of a sudden, he's standing me up and handcuffing me behind my back, telling me,'We have to do this until we get it straightened out.'
"Meanwhile, everybody's looking at me. I've lived here 18 years. I'm hoping my kids don't walk in and see this. And I'm saying,'I can't believe you're doing this. I'm paying with legal American money.'"
Bolesta was taken to the lockup, where he sat handcuffed to a pole and in leg irons while the Secret Service was called.
"At this point," he says, "I'm a mass murderer."
Secret Service agent Leigh Turner eventually arrived and declared the bills legitimate, adding, according to the police report, "Sometimes ink on money can smear."
Commenting on the incident, Baltimore County police spokesman Bill Toohey told the Sun: "It's a sign that we're all a little nervous in the post-9/11 world."

Stooopit and unncessary behavior is part and parcel of why these military crashes occur. For example, if their air show displays are so dangerous, then why do it?(Ignorant testosterone wants to impress the salivating, clueless sheeple.)

Nobody said the space shuttles are safer than commercial flights. We all know they're incredible dangerous, even moreso than these roid rage, alcoholic, Air Force, fratboy pilots are.

At least we hear less about the rapes at the Air Force Academy these days. Praiz!
