Flight schools typically train for small single engine aircraft. Not exactly a WMD.

Unless it's a small single engine aircraft packed with 500lbs of semtex and ball bearings.

What? If this loophole continues to be unaddressed, I intend to start by firing my Congressman and my Senator! Fool us once, shame on them! Fool us twice, shame on us!

The terrorists can never use an airliner again like 9/11.
No passenger flying in the free world will allow a plane to be taken over. It will never work again they changed the playing field.
WE should quit spending trillions on security, let some terrorist idiot try it again. WE THE PEOPLE will NEVER allow it to happen like that again.
that, I am certain of. TSA did not stop any attacks. Planes full of AMericans stopped the last attempts.

How about if it's a car packed with that? or a bicycle? or a backpack?
Why single out aviation?

That's why they haven't tried since 9/11. They're not afraid of the TSA, they're afraid of the passengers and pilots.

Uh, dunno. Maybe something like 'learning from past mistakes'?

But try driving a Ryder truck into the Holland tunnel and see how far you get. Then let us know about aviation being singled out.

Most of these flight schools are run by guys who seldom shave or bathe...

400 people have died from bee stings since 9/11. What is being done about this?

Thousands of cell towers were installed to kill them off.

"IF", this loophole continues to be unaddressed? It's been going on for decades, not just recently. Pick up a copy of Barry and the Boys and you will not believe what you read. Try following the history of Huffman Aviation out of Venice, FL. for starters. Ever wonder why Barry thought it best to change his name? Barry as Pres. and the NBP making another showing of itself......way too coincidental. Omama is not receiving funds like before because the Middle East is not happy with his productivity, shall we say. Read, Study, Learn then Think.

Ever wonder where all these young, pretty blondes, American girls are disappearing to? I'm not sure but I think there may be one or two on here that know all this politics is tied into much, much more. This garbage people are talking about on these threads are shat! This is much deeper, more broadspread, and more deviant than most would believe.

Come back as a registered poster, gray box poster, and we'll chat. I generally don't talk to gray box posters. If not, you still have a good one!

Gray? It's purple on my screen. I never register at forums, it's not the smartest thing to do. JMO You have a good one as well. Oh yea, Daniel Hopsicker (I think) has done some great stuff on all this.
