What if socialists designed airplanes...

Ever wonder what things would be like if the current people trying to "redesign our country" were put in charge of redesigning airplanes? Here's how it might go:

Socialist: "It's not fair that Boeings get to hold more fuel than Bombardiers. Effective immediately, all Boeings will be limited to holding no more than 20,000 lbs of fuel."

Capitalist: "But then Boeings would have to fly shorter distances, or carry fewer people."

Socialist: "20,000 lbs of fuel is plenty. They don't need more to fly. They'll be just fine without the extra. In fact, all extra fuel that would have been put on Boeings will be put on the RJs, just to make it fair."

Capitalist: "But then the RJs will be wasteful and inefficient, if you just load them up with free fuel."

Socialist: "It's called shared sacrifice. We're all in this together."

I love this "change you can believe in." Definitely would work out better.

Oh, I don't know. Here's one socialist-designed airplane. Full FBW long before either the A320 or the 777.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. It's gonna be a long and painful one folks. As the racist Louis Faracon said about Obama: "....the Anointed One has come." Scary stuff.

and the worst part is that fellow airline pilots who consider themselves rational educated people actually voted for this.

Cant wait for some "stupid bush" comment like i hear from my mother in law daily

Whoa once again my pilot friends need to get a dose of truth. The man you speak of has been president for what less than two months. Come on a 1 trillion dollar plus deficit was inherited with over 10 trillion dollars in debt. 2 wars which I can personally attest to one being a big mistake. And an economy not only in a deep recession but a recession with a lack of consumer and corporate credibility. The last 8 years where spent living high of the hog and dipping into our supposed rich houses with easy stupid money while we ignored all of our problems. I really should go on but I'm going out to work on my business by nurturing it and doing what I have to do to get things done while all the Bush dead beats beg for their wall street bail out which we are almost being forced to give them or risk a complete death of the credit market. WSJ put out a poll yesterday showing over 80 percent believes in Obama. I am one of those 80 percent.

Airline passengers pay over 30 percent of their ticket price to taxes.

Rich people pay on average 3 percent taxes when they fly from PBI to HPN. In their private aircraft.

FACT

If that's your idea of capitalism I'll take something else. The fact is this is not capitalism it is a regressive tax system. We need fairness. That is what OBAMA is bringing. It ain't perfect but it is a lot better than having the top one percent own 90 percent of this country. The Bush system we got now is unamerican.

Double shot must love that his passengers are being fleeced with high taxes and are the sole support for our ATC system whilst private aircraft owners flying jets pay next to nothing for the same services. Why? Ask lobbyists who pay for Lindsay Graham's reelections.

So by that logic, Bush flew the Cronyism Plane into the World Trade Center and blamed Clinton.

I'm just having some fun. But you read the title, moused over the thread, clicked on it, read the whole thing, and then took the time to respond to it. If it's such crap, just ignore it. It seems to me that you're wasting your own time.:rolleyes:

It does not matter how much logic you use, they will ignore it.

Don't forget an awkward turrets style blurting out of "and the great Ronald Reagan"



Airline pax pay 30% and private jet owners pay 3%? I thought when the Constitution was written all men were created equal.... opps except for blacks, slaves and women....

So in 21st century, we all created equal. Is equal our 30% to their 3%?

How people defend the elites when they are never, ever going to be one is amazing.....

Let me guess, your pulling on your bootstraps now and you'll be riding in your private jet soon, you "conservatives" just need a bit more time..... Go play the lottery... maybe get yourself a scratch card. :rolleyes:
