Clearly republicans operate in their own fact free bubble. The problem is the vast majority of Americans are unable to tell fact from fiction and can be sold magic beans repeatedly. The dumbest most badly informed electorate in history.

Yes, the CIA Flew U-2 Spy Planes From Aircraft Carriers

Big-wing spy planes once operated from Americas flattopsbut not easily

Steve Weintz

 

On May 1, 1960, the Soviet Union shot down a CIA U-2 spy plane and captured its pilot, Francis Gary Powers. It was an international crisis for Americas intelligence agencies.

 

A planned summit between Pres. Dwight Eisenhower and Premier Nikita Khrushchev was scuttled, much to Eisenhowers embarrassment and to the fury of the Pakistanis, from whose territory the flight had been launched.

 

First flown in 1957, the 63-foot-long, jet-powered U-2capable of flying as high as 70,000 feetis still used by the U.S. Air Force. But after the Powers incident, basing the plane in foreign countries became problematic. Their mere presence caused heartburn in diplomatic circles. Time-sensitive targets could be lost to prolonged negotiations over basing rights.

 

One solution was to put the U-2, nicknamed Dragon Lady, on aircraft carriers. After all, as the U.S. Navy often puts it, an aircraft carrier is four acres of sovereign American territory anywhere in the world it sails.

In early 1964 Bob Schumacher conducted a number of trial landings and take-offs from the USS Ranger and a number of other CIA pilots, including Jim Barnes, became carrier qualified. The target for the U-2G was the French nuclear test site, situated at Mururoa Atoll in the middle of the South Pacific, well out of the range of a land-based U-2. Consequently, in May 64 a U-2G operating from the USS Ranger photographed Mururoa Atoll and until 1968 three of the CIAs fleet of U-2s and a number of pilots were always carrier capable, although few actual sorties were ever flown.

WHAT A JOKE WE ARE..

 

This article from the Jerusalem Post was a real knee-slapper (if you don't care about America's image in the world anymore).

Sharon's Last Laugh

Scissors-32x32.png
Chances are, there were moments in the very serious ceremony that he would have considered funny. There was no ridiculous sign language interpreter like at the late South African president Nelson Mandela's funeral. US vice president Joe Biden was careful to not take any selfies.

President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speeches passed without incident. They both made a point of avoiding mentioning Gaza, Lebanon, or anything controversial.

Then US Vice-president Joe Biden took the microphone, speaking several decibels louder than the Israelis. His voice carried far outside the Knesset and reverberated back.

At the very beginning of his speech, Biden called the prime minister “Metanyahu” and pronounced Peres's name with an emphasis on the second syllable, which made the Polish-born president's name sound Hispanic. He name-dropped several Israeli leaders but forgot former prime minister Ehud Olmert, who was sitting not far from him.

Audience members cringed when in an apparently inadvertent fat joke, Biden said that when he was present, Sharon “filled the room.” But the truth is, Sharon made fun of his girth more than anyone. After entering an elevator with weighty Labor MK Avraham “Baiga Shochat,” Sharon looked at him and said “we must be going down.”

When Biden praised the Gaza Strip withdrawal, Gush Katif evacuee MK Zevulun Kalfa, sat silently in the back of the crowd, staring uncomfortably at the ground.

The Neurotic Left Ponders “Gender-Minimized” Dating
V the K
January 13, 2014.


We on the right concern ourselves with things like the fiscal unsustainability of the national Government and the diminishment of individual rights under a massive and ever expanding bureaucratic state. The left worries about how to eliminate gender roles from dating situations.



It’s not possible to have a completely gender neutral date. Gender, our cultural and personal notions of how people should act based on their biological sex, influences too many aspects of our behavior to be completely neutralized. In the dating context, gender roles provide an outline of how things “should” work. But in a day and age where equality is the expectation, why stick to a rigid outline based on your genitalia?


(Snip)

You ever wonder if there is a corollary to Rush Limbaugh’s Undeniable Truth of Life #24, something to the effect that gamma males embrace feminism because they can never achieve the normal standard of manhood? Is the obsession with “gender” is a thinly veiled assault against the masculine ideal by men who are incapable of achieving it, and women who resent the lack of interest displayed to them by alpha males?

From Oct. 1, 2011 to Sept. 30, 2012, the Obama-led US Government, using $540,000,000 in taxpayer funding.....executed 327,166 innocent children. That's US taxpayers spending around $ 1,650.54, for each child to die.

 

Planned Parenthood Releases Annual Report Showing They Performed One Abortion Every 96 Seconds, Over 327K Babies Killed In One Year… http://weaselzippers.us/planned-parenthood-releases-annual-report-showing-they-performed-one-abortion-every-96-seconds-over-327k-babies-killed-in-one-year/

 

In its latest annual report, released in December, Planned Parenthood says it did 327,166 abortion procedures in the course of one year and 2,197 adoption referrals. That works out to approximately 149 abortions for each adoption referral.

 

The data comes from an accounting of “patient care” Planned Parenthood says its “affiliate health centers” did in the year that ran from Oct. 1, 2011 to Sept. 30, 2012.

 

Planned Parenthood says in it new annual report that it received a total of $540.6 million in government grants and reimbursements for the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2013. That accounted for almost 45 percent of the organization’s total revenue of $1,210.4 million.
