The FAA is relaxing rules on using some electronic devices on board commercial aircraft during takeoff and landings. Is that a good thing?

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Makes no difference to me

Veritas, there is not one instance of a proven connection between PEDs and flight interference. Pilots use iPads as flight manuals now right in the cockpit. Do you want to try and explain how a passenger using one would create a safety issue? I could probably recite the safety briefing just as well as any flight attendant, so if I happen to have my iPad out during the speech I've heard at least 300 times, I don't think I'm putting anyone in danger. I do agree with the cell phone ban in place, but more from an annoyance point of view.

I don't really care but air travel just got a little more rude.

Of course the inspections are "arbitrary and capricious."

What would be the point of inspections done on a routine basis? The terrorists and gun-toting Tea Partisans would simply plan to avoid such inspections.

I swear -- you people get smarter and smarter every day.

And the "progressive" ideology of genocidal hate and rage get dumber and dumber every day.

The facts are it is Progressive Liberals who steal guns to kill movie goers and children in school! They have never been a conservative NRA member!

Ft. Hood ~~~ Registered Democrat ~ Muslim

Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote, but both families were registered Democrats and Progressive Liberals.

Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff; was a Registered Democrat.

Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat, staff worker on the Obama campaign, Occupy Wall Street participant, Progressive Liberal.

Connecticut School Shooter ~~~ Registered Democrat;hate Christians.

At times it become comical to see the so-called intelligent winger bloggers falling all over themselves to write negativity about liberals and President Obama on the blogs. This post is from some irrelevant right wing personality and is false. It has been posted before and the assumptions that these shooters were liberals/democrats is incorrect. I realize that facts are irrelevant to the right but get a life and the facts.

Leftfield, you can't actually be disputing those FACTS can you? Show me where a Republican/NRA member shot a place up, c'mon, show me.

So, Mr. Hockeypuck, did I make that accusation? No, not at all. But, you cannot back up the statement so you try to attack or change the direction. You cannot back up the accusations because they are not true. Typical right winger. No facts, no information, stone cold lie.

I dredged this one up for centerish, because it's really hard to take the time to provide the proof of one's rightness when one's so very, very busy enjoying one's rightness - yeah, that's you, centerish.

FYI - I'll be happy to keep providing the info I want, when, how and if I want. If some day I happen to prove centerish wrong, well, so be it.
