Meet Dem Adam Schiff

The same man encouraging Congressional Democrats to boycott the Benghazi select committee investigation into the death of 4 Americans and the potential incompetence leading to those deaths, coupled with an attempt to cover up that incompetency for purely political reasons?  Is insisting the FAA move more quickly and aggressively to investigate helicopter noise.

Because priorities!

I mean, shit, it ain’t like Ambassador Stevens and those kill bots America built aren’t going to stay dead, right?  So at this point, what difference does it make?

Meanwhile, the Dems are in the unique position to demand an investigation into something that can improve the quality of life for all those who don’t really like that motors and rotors on flying machines require a bit of noise should they wish to, you know, fly.  These brave Dems are standing up to the aural oppression of physics.  For the Greater Good!

Hey hey, ho ho, noise from spinning rotors has got to go.  Hey hey, ho ho, a few dead SEALS is status quo!

  1. Not to mention (as I did on an earlier thread) the display of the rug that has been in storage since before “23 skiddoo” was the meme du jour…

    Armenian, American, potato, to-mah-to, close enough for Democrats…

  2. Can these be used to round up cattle so they are a little less spooked?

  3. Depends on your definition of cattle, bg.

  4. Look.

    If help had been sent to the folks in Benghazi, it would have involved HELICOPTERS and their infernal rotor noise.

    CONSISTENT!

  5. It’s official: Gowdy chairs the Select Committee.

  6. Let’s hope he tables all Dem attempts to disrupt the investigation.

  7. ‘Chairs’, ‘tables’ – I am the lamp of humor.

  8. I remember the silent helicopters in Deus Ex. It didn’t end well.

  9. Los Angeles County residents have been plagued by frequent and disruptive helicopter noise for far too long and deserve relief.

    The poor dears. Here is a clue for the allegedly aggrieved, if you want quiet, don’t live in a megalopolis.

    I’ve been, reluctantly though it was, to LA and never even noticed any exceptional helicopter noise above the background, even taking into account I did live in Clarksville, TN, and actually like the sound.

  10. Eingang, I believe I may have contributed to some of the Clarksville wop-wop-wop (self-denounced). Were you there during Huey or Black Hawk days?

  11. Primarily the UH-60s, there was a Huey battalion still there, though. Of course, it was the hooks going right over the house that caused me to straighten the pictures regularly and frequently.

    There is nothing like the sound of a Huey, though. One of the things that I have noticed is that it is used for damn near every helicopter in movies.

  12. Yeah, for a diminutive little aircraft, the Huey sure sounds impressive. The shithooks we followed by looking for the trail of hydraulic fluid. I was lucky enough to fly three models of Hueys and the prototype YUH-60 and 61. Good times, so to speak. Ausgezeichnet.

  13. Impressive indeed – I had occasion to be in a place with some Brits who hated the sound of Hueys so the only natural thing to do was to make an approach directly over their hootches and make the the really good rotor slap. They would gripe, but if it was a MEDEVAC how much could they really complain ?

  14. Heh. Hubs used to do the same. He once “accidently” blew over the Colonel’s tent.

    Accidently.

  15. He probably thinks “Blue Thunder” was a true to life movie. Flick a switch and the rotors stop making noise.

    Yup.

  16. I’ve had a Huey ride. I would’ve paid for it, but it was part of the job. Even though the Blackhawk is smoother, I will not complain.

    The other guy riding herd on avionics blew chow into a can of nuts that he had just finished off, right as we touched skids. Fortunately, even though he practically meniscused the can, he got none on his or my flight suit.

    Which as everyone knows is a military uniform.

  17. I wonder if there was a Simpsons episode where Bart wrote:

    I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor. I will not walk into the tail rotor.

  18. Which as everyone knows is a military uniform.

    Particularly for the Air Force – I am a bit surprised they haven’t come out with a mess dress version yet.

  19. he got none on his or my flight suit.

    Frequent flyer?

  20. If you were to peruse the homepages of ABC News, NBC News and CBS News you would currently find just one mention of Benghazi, way down at the bottom of the CBS page and it is this 2 day old item: Democrats: Special Benghazi panel nothing but politics

    Ahem. So, politics is not news now? Wait until the 47% find out about this!

    Likewise, CNN has just a couple of small print mentions:

    A guide to GOP’s Benghazi obsession

    and…

    Political Chatter: Benghazi, Ukraine and deconstructing Obama’s veiled humor

    To their credit, CNN does have the truly big news of the day emblazoned across the top of the site: Report: ‘Urgent action’ needed on climate change

  21. Eingang, I believe I may have contributed to some of the Clarksville wop-wop-wop (self-denounced).

    Ah, but that’s just the big rotor! Remember what the little one said?

  22. “Guinea- guinea- guinea!”
    You are forcing me to denounce myself again.
