All About Yuppie Arlington
You mean another "We know most helicopter flights are to transport VIPs but we're going to pretend the flights are really important" Forum?
Black (Army) helicopters are not the problem. Problem is with the dark green and dark blue VIP transport helicopters with "United States of America" in gold letters along the fuselage.
I wonder how President Obama would like it if helicopters flew over the White House at all hours after picking up and dropping off VIPs?
I moved to Fairlington in 1994. So there have been 3 Presidents in office since then. Same old helicopters. Same noise.
If anyone is outraged it should be Jim Moran. Helicopters constantly fly up and down the Potomac past his home on the Palisades transporting VIPs.
Now that the Space Shuttle Program is ending, why is NASA (which, after all, is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration) not starting on R & D programs to build a new generation of quiet helicopters?
Hell, I saw a show on cable the other night where researchers are recovering debris from crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft. So haw about getting this 23rd Century technology into the 21st Century? But I guess that would like making Dominion agree to allow solar panels to be put on a new office building.
Harry, no one can do anything that moves the USA forward for fear that it might offend a powerful person, organization, corporation, or special interest, threaten "national security", or otherwise make the oligarchy that governs us unhappy.
Harry, Arlington's Guru of Gridlock is putting a 1910 vintage trolley system on the Pike while cities with trolleys are taking them out of service.
Some pretty angry residents showed up. But it was more of the same old all talk, no action, from the "Authorities".
Charade is exactly right. Another pre-election gimmick to confuse the sheeple.
What's the difference between the Repigs and the Dempigs?Anything that arises from the Dempigs' agenda that might directly benefit humans over the long term is completely coincidental.Anything that arises from the Repigs' agenda that might directly benefit humans over the long term is Socialist, Communist, Atheist, or Terrorist.
In other words, almost nothing will ever accrue to us from either political party's agenda that will benefit us long-term. Just what I always thought.
What's the difference between a Yuppicrat and a Yuppublican?Yuppiecrat - less corporate welfare and welfare for the wealthy. Yuppublican - more corporate welfare and welfare for the wealthy.
I nominate Scott McCaffrey for Yuppie Idiot of the Year for his "blame the victims" comments regarding helicopter noise
