SOLVED: What brought the plane down in the Hudson River

Tags: , , , , , ,


Flight data recorders from the black box on board the US Airways plane revealed that both engines simultaneously cut off shortly after take off as the plane was just 3,200ft (975m) off the ground.

Kitty Higgins of the National Transportation Safety Board confirmed that birds getting caught up in the engines caused the loss of power which forced hero pilot Chesley Burnett Sullenberger to land the jet on the Hudson River.

Just minutes after taking off from LaGuardia Airport on Thursday, the US Airways Airbus – en route to North Carolina with 155 people on board – suffered a ‘bird strike’ as it was hit by a flock of geese.

The pilots had said they smelled “burning birds” and that the plane’s windscreen “filled with big, dark brown birds” before both engines cut out.

Liberal Outrage: A Pro-McCain March In Manhattan

Tags: , , , , , , ,


A group of McCain-Palin supporters dare to march through the Upper West Side – and are met with hatred and rage for being infidels in the heart of liberal Mecca. Republicans are as out of place there as elephants at a donkey show. Area intellectuals jeer them well – just as they had been taught to do. FACT: The number of middle fingers in the "progressive" crowd is directly proportional to the number of PhD degrees in the ten-block radius

These useful intellectuals turn out to be not as peaceful, inclusive, and open-minded as they claim to be. Take a peek into the glorious progressive world they want us to live in – they display zero tolerance to the opposing viewpoint, yet they want to impose their rule over our lives. Fugedaboudit! Republicans should be lucky New York doesn’t have a Colosseum with lions.

Some of the occasional cheering passers-by are either out-of-towners, or foreigners – or could they actually be local Republicans who managed to survive the uncompromising "liberal" bullying? Say, what is a compromise between an open hand and the middle finger?

A bumpkin from flyover country might think that New Yorkers were booing al-Qaeda that’s bent on destroying their city. FACT: Islamic radicals would be more welcome on the Upper West Side than American patriots. The "liberals" always extend their sympathy for being bullied and rejected – not to American patriots, but to this country’s enemies.

"Liberal" elites believe that all ideologies are morally equal, except the one that supports capitalism and individual liberties – the only ideology that makes their lavish lifestyles possible. And so they’re driving it out of town, tarred and feathered. Republicans in New York: less equal than others.

When leftist politicians are promising you to bridge the divide, they are "selling you a bridge."

The leftist idea of unity is, and always has been, THE ELIMINATION OF DISSENT.
