My pilot was a woman and I was happy about that because it's nice to know they are doing it just as well as the boys. She was nice but all business which I expected. She asked me what I had for breakfast because it was going to be in the back of her plane but I said I already took care of that. She laughed, it seemed to break the ice. We talked about our backgrounds, one of my heroes in flight was hers also, Kara Hultgreen, the first woman fighter pilot. Sadly, she died in a crash and we spoke about that which made what we were about to due more real.
Taking off is like nothing you can imagine, and we were on land, can't imagine a catapult. You are up and charging in seconds, effortlessly. I tried to remember all that would happen all I've studied about aerodynamics and for a while I did focus trying to imagine flying the plane. The Lieutenant spoke to me on the radio telling me what was coming and finally telling me to enjoy the ride but remember to breathe and do extremity exercises for g-forces. It became acrobatic.I handled it pretty well, I think. Just amazing.
I mean the guy drove around with 5 dead kids in a car for 9 days. Can anyone seriously tell me that person is mentally competent? What good will it do to put him to death? Will family cheer and be happy when he dies? It won't happen for years and then won't it just destroy any healing that may have taken place? Closure is a myth.
I don't know. I have respect for the guy who lost a family member and then waits for the offender to be convicted in court, witnesses he's sane, smuggles a gun into court and kills him himself. Fast, clean, applied equally.
So to all, Happy Gay Pride Day, always be proud. Most of us believe the same rights apply to all but there are still those who don't. May their hard hearts be softened and their ignorant minds changed. Be safe and enjoy the beautiful weekend!
On to 911 - planned and executed by the people we think, however there are many pieces that do not add up. I am certain Cheney gave the order to shoot the plane down over Pennsylvania, was not brought down by the goof people on board however heroic and nice a story it makes. I'm positive. The plane was 9 minutes out of Washington and the Cap building to be specific. 10 minutes out is bring it down however possible.
10 Minutes til contact, maybe less, no way it's getting closer. Cheney had to make the call Bush wasn't able and in my opinon it was the right call but in the opinion of many Americans Im sure it was the wrong call and those type policies need to be discussed. I always hold my opinion is not the right one, it's only mine, others are equally important.
By telling the story as it happened we have heroes (and we love our hereos. My profuse appologies if I have it wrong and theose guys did bring it down, I don't think they did though) The Government conviently never needs to talk about the military shooting down citizens on a commercial airliner. A terrible event and one that begs much condieration and debate there are all kinds of constitutional events within that situation. But our Governement lost a long time ago the notion it's for the people by the people.

I know the government lies and make things up (the Gulf of Tonkin incident and Saddam’s supposed weapons of mass destruction are just 2 well-known examples), but you still have to have some facts or evidence to back up alternate explanations.
