WTF???

A little over a year ago, the House Repugnicans quietly killed a provision in a bill that would have provided for training for a large number of new sky marshals to ride the nation's airplanes and protect us from airborne terrorists.

Now these assholes, it seems to me, ride airplanes a lot more than the rest of us, so why would they want to make flying less safe? It doesn't make any sense.

Unless it's one of three things:

(1) There's something in it for them -- some kind of under-the-table off-the-books kickback, but I can't imagine what that would be.

(2) They've drunk the Koolaidtm so much that they don't care if the plane they are riding on flies into the Sears Tower as long as they've cut back on all domestic spending, or

(3) They know something we don't know about air safety and terrorists. Like there aren't any terrorists riding American planes, 9-11 was a setup, like the infamous Reichstag fire, and Osama is an active agent of the Repugnifascist conspiracy.

Kind of makes you think, doesn't it?

Too many flights plus I think there's no need for sky marshals. If we'd had good locks on the cabin doors and not opened them under any circumstance no planes would have been hijacked in the first place.

OMG you better go under cover after this one, CIA will be after you for exposing the Shrubs plans... Now the question is, why did they stage 9/11 Kinda funny they did it on 911 which means emergency to the US. Well I hope you escape for the CIA secret prison fast again...

Do you think putting 1 guy with a gun on a plane will help or hurt the terrorist? Now remember he too works for the government or the lowest bid contractor.

hmmm... Nice tin hat theory.
