This article has some good info and history.

Next time there will be three.
"Air Force 1" does not refer to the aircraft itself, it is the Call Sign of "A" aircraft carrying POTUS.
I know, but for the layman the plane(s) itself has always been "Air Force One".

I'll take a look.

Unions are a cancer in America!!
A cancer kills the "hostess" it lives off
Right, the execs that ran Hostess ran up a two billion dollar debt, raised their pay three times and it is the union's fault because they wouldn't cut their pay in half.

What did the election tell us?
Tells us the lower half of society is now the majority.
There was a time when taking charity had a stigma-- no one wanted to be a parasite. Now taking food stamps, Welfare, unemployment, free school lunches is cool. Hey, if it's free, why not?
When the Great Society (President Johnson's Welfare society) first started in the 60's black illegitimacy was 4%. Now it's over 70%. You get more money on the Welfare check if you have more bastards, so why not?
When I went thru grade school 40 years ago, less than 10% of children received free lunches. Now almost 25% of public school kid get lunches, breakfasts and some even get dinner. Then they go home where Momma got free groceries with her EBT card. More free stuff! Why not!
Want to see who won? Look at Madonna parading her 54-year-old boobs on stage. Look at the woman in Cleveland bragging about her Obamaphone. Look at the Occupy Wall Street protesters crapping on the sidewalk.
The slime is now the majority.
Well said although it doesn't look like this reality is going to go away. At some point, the hardworking will have to break away from govt oppression or get sucked into this commie plot.

"Air Force One is used to refer to one of two highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft, which carry the tail codes 28000 and 29000. The Air Force designation for the aircraft is VC-25A."
Actually there are two nearly identical "Air Force One" planes.
Biden flies on "Air Force Two".
AF1 is the plane the president is on, isn't it? either of those two planes are not called air force one when the president is not aboard...

Yea, who needs 40 hour work weeks? Who needs decent wages? The corporations who so kindly have given you a job so you can have the occasional meal, should have the right to control every aspect of your life. Who needs slavery when we can just do away with unions?If they don't work for me, they don't eat.

The real sheep, Vince, where the kool aid drinkers who swallowed the Faux News BS that Etchy was leading in Ohio.

The Faux geniuses told us Etchy had a 5 point lead. Guess basic arithmetic is not your strong suit, eh Vince?

"Will he use aliens circling around the planet, waiting for his signal?!!!!!!"

Actually, only liberals believe that!

Your liberal leader Louis Farrakhan actually believes that, YOUR LIBERAL LEADER thinks just like you that is why he is liberal like you because EQUAL MINDS THINK ALIKE !!!

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation_of_Isla...

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told us of a giant Mother Plane that is made like the universe, spheres within spheres. White people call them unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Ezekiel, in the Old Testament, saw a wheel that looked like a cloud by day but a pillar of fire by night. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that that wheel was built on the island of Nippon, which is now called Japan, by some of the Original scientists. It took $15 billion in gold at that time to build it. It is made of the toughest steel. America does not yet know the composition of the steel used to make an instrument like it. It is a circular plane, and the Bible says that it never makes turns. Because of its circular nature it can stop and travel in all directions at speeds of thousands of miles per hour. He said there are 1,500 small wheels in this Mother Wheel, which is a half mile by a half mile [800 m by 800 m]. This Mother Wheel is like a small human-built planet. Each one of these small planes carry three bombs.

Facts and reality check:

Hostess bankrupt employees unemployed.

Fact #1. Hostess bankrupt.

Fact #2. Employees unemployed.

Fact #3. It matters not what the executive did with THEIR money they risked and invested fact #2 still remains employees unemployed while fact #1 still hold true.

Summary: it matter not what I do with MY MONEY, if my lazy employees are not grateful for the unskilled job I provide them with so they can pay their food and bills then I close my store, fire the lazy liberal rats and take my hard earned and highly risked money somewhere else.

If you want a job CREATE YOUR OWN COMPANY!!!

That is the conservative way!!!

Do not like flipping hamburgers for $5.00/hour? Then open your OWN restaurant idiot!!!

That my ignorant friend is the true American conservative way!!!
