    The insults of ATC folks never seem to stop, with morons who haven’t the slightest idea that it is one of the most stressful jobs in the world, world-wide, at high volume airports. Millions of lives are protected every day by these folks, and yet morons keep insulting them.


    Oh, right, Ron Ray-gun was right in causing the biggest screwup in the system in U.S. history, in an effort to "bust unions’, no matter how many lives were put at risk.

    Ever tried that job? You have no idea. I think you should before you put crap like that out…

    The issue was an illegal strike by the air traffic controllers whose union was the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, not “union busting”. PATCO was decertified and was replaced by the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. The air traffic controllers are still unionized.

    Reagan’s chickens coming home to roost.

    @Mr. King

    Your ignorance of Hoover is laughable. He was an accomplished engineer, a graduate of Stanford University and saved millions of lives though his leadership of relief efforts in post World War I and World War II Europe. He was born into a poor family in Iowa and all of his accomplishments were earned through hard work and effort.

    Moreover, Hoover was unfairly blamed for the Great Depression… which Roosevelt unnecessarily prolonged with his incessant meddling with the economy.

    Go ahead and argue with me, I hold a Ph.D in American history.

    Poorly characterized, Daba. Go visit any FAA facility if you think someone could be napping.

    We staunch Union Members wonder what are people thinking. We know where the 1% come from… but people who support “right to work” legislation and the politicians who push the garbage are only asking for lower wages, less benefits and more of their income devoted to paying for the loss of afore mentioned benefits. The same politicians then raid public pension systems then blame the payees for the deficits they, the politicians themselves created. Wake up!! Instead of voting to steal from other workers, not to mention trashing Unions… why not vote to better your own economic standards.

    “…why not vote to better your own economic standards.”


    Because that would make too much sense and as we all know Republicans don’t have any.

    Zit; been a pilot and crew chief on aircraft. Have several friends who worked ATC, also friends who were commercial pilots and flight engineers, who flew around the world to many airports.


    LIke Ima and several other of our more “conservative” folks it appears you resent never having any life experiences other than listening to Rush Limbaugh. SO, one last time, stop the irrelevant insults, come up with something of value to say, just once, and try to get a life, and an education beyond right-wing talk radio and Faux News.

    They should but their “Tribe” tells them what to think and what to do. Anyone not in their “Tribe” isn’t quite human and so doesn’t deserve any better than what they get. Of course they believe that by supporting their “Tribe” they will get something back…. it never happens but hope springs eternal. Tribalism was necessary early in human evolution but unfortunately it has become a far bigger hindrance than a help in the modern world.

    Assuming Dana ever travels by air, he can thank the ATC’s for their professionalism – not that Dana would recognize a professional other than the ones who think his name is John.

    TROUT: Your list of BS careers now number around 30. You fool no one. And for future reference, buying an airline ticket doesn’t constitute being a pilot or crew member.

    And for the record, I know a real Air Traffic Controller. Thanks to Reagan, and the greed of the ATC Union, my cousin enjoyed a tremendous career, made 6 figures a year, had absolutely incredible benefits, and just retired at age 52 with a fantastic pension. Then, while in retirement, and still collection his pension, he has the opportunity of “filling in” on a part time basis, at $50/hour! (Maybe more, I forget.)

    So go fly a kite!
