    Must you confuse jeffieee poo pooo anymore then he is already?

    He does not know the difference between an PRV and PVC or HUB.

  • usnretiredx2

    @Coffee Steve, S Papa, & Jeff

    Now if you read that I have the following input.

    One, we will never know if it was armed or not for sure. That is always classified. Main reason because we tell the country it is flying in it is not armed.

    Two, other than a U2 or a SR all aircraft sent in to take pictures is armed. Would be be flying any thing in the sand box and not have it armed when it can be armed. If the drone was on a recon and a target popped up during that recon are you say we would have had to send out another one to do the job.

    Yeah, right.

    RPV was what we called it back in my day of launching them off.

    Later changed to UAV which was during the 1st Gulf War and they became very high tech and controlled almost any where in the world.

    @Sicilian Papa
    Christie is finished! He might be President if he runs as a Democrat. He could have said nice things and showed appreciation for the President’s effort. The big wet one on the lips?

    He is finished! He will never be President! Not as a Republican!
    Christie made himself look very good to moderate voters(on both sides) I think. I do think what he did could help him win a few more blue collar blue states(NJ, Ohio, Michigan, etc) if he runs in 2016

  • Jeff

    @sunshine, the losing side concedes like their nominee, and then eventually we move on to b!tching about their Administration, policies, conspiracy theories, etc.

  • Jeff

    Make NO mistake! Chris Christy is very much a NeoCon Republican. His veto pen and policies speak much louder then his recent embrace and appreciation for President Obama during this crisis.

    It’s only because he is being compassionate and humble he appears as a Democrat or moderate, that is not a TeaParty attribute, so when a Republican like Christy shows that he has a heart or acts moderate, the right wing will sadly throw him or anyone under a bus.
    (A bus with really big tall wheels) :lol:

    Bloomberg that he get his head out of his … and cancel the marathon

    One of our sons is a marathon runner, &, my nephew is a wheelchair marathoner. Bloomberg’s decision is the height of stupidity. The marathon begins on Staten Island & takes place in all five boroughs . People are suffering , cold , hungry , & without power. Those affected are angry that valuable police , etc. resources are being diverted to the marathon , not to them. They speak of increasing looting, no emergency road access , no police presence, & many other safety needs.


    Mercury One has raised $ 1,139,765 & the amount continues to rise, in just a couple of days for those affected.

    That’s fantastic, and at least we know the money will actually go where it supposed to with them.

    @Gun Running from Libya to Syria: the ‘Al-Entisar,’

    That’s exactlly where this is heading, has been from the start d.d.

    Later Gators, out for awhile
