12 planes violated the Trump TFR last weekend


TFR means Temporary Flight Restriction, and you can read about the TFRs here: http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/business-aviation/2017-01-20/feds-outline-tfr-plans-trump-visits-mar-lago

They have a 30-nautical-mile radius airspace restriction around Trump's pleasure palace, with a near-absolute 10-nm radius no-fly zone in the center. Business jets can fly into Palm Beach International, but they have to be cleared at one of five "gateway airports" - Westchester County, Teterboro, Washington Dulles, Orlando International or Fort Lauderdale International Airport - before flying to Palm Beach.

So far, Trump has cost the Palm Beach aviation community a quarter-million dollars, and he's only been president five weeks.

This country is so screwed.

You realize the Milo thing is going to be twisted to help the alt-right

It is Tuesday, February 21. Milo the Troll was just canned by Breitbart "News" for claiming pederasty is a good thing.

By Friday, February 24, the entire hard right will be claiming Milo did nothing wrong, that he has Freedom of Speech and he was silenced by the "loony left" for daring to express an unpopular opinion. This Sunday's talk shows will be covered up with it. Trump will go into a tweetstorm. Congress will demand investigations. And the Conservative Man in the Street, perhaps not realizing what Milo's "unpopular opinion" was, will use this incident as further proof that Liberals Are Evil And Need To All Be Killed.

Sweden prepares Trump retaliation plan that will bring America to her KNEES

They are going to go through every IKEA store and warehouse in the US and take the instructions out of the boxes.

How to make your Sto-Fen diffuser fit your flash

I will soon need to take some flash photos under fluorescent light. Since I have Nikon F4S and 8008S bodies I bought an SB-24 flash. I got a FL-D filter, the Sto-Fen diffuser listed...no go, too small.

Easy to fix. You need a heat gun and a work glove. Simply heat the diffuser til it gets soft, pry it over the nose of the flash, and leave it on til it cools.

I think we all need a little levity right about now

And this one never gets old...

How to end illegal immigration once and for all

Throw company executives and HR officers in federal prison if their companies are found to be employing illegal immigrants. Give one week for each immigrant from one to 25, a month for each one between 26 and 50, and a year for each one past 50. That's for the first offense. (Also deport all the illegal immigrants, making sure to charge the company the full cost of deportation.)

Second offense: $100,000 fine plus prison.

If they're stupid enough to do it a third time, seize the company and auction it off.

Trump will never agree to it for two reasons - his biggest business supporters would be in prison, and if this system was in place in 1980 so would Donald Trump. Has anyone bothered to do an eVerify audit of his hotels?

I LOVE Robert Alford!

You'll remember for the rest of your life where you were when you hear of major tragedy

So...where were you when you heard about the Bowling Green Massacre?

I was in my bathroom having my morning Trump, and I was truly astounded when I heard about it. Astounded, that is, that anyone would come up with such an obvious line of bullTrump and expect anyone to believe it.

They were building on the Berlin Wall until two weeks before they took it down

In an LBN thread posted a short while ago, Trump's Minister of State Security, John Kelly, claims he can have the Trump Wall finished in two years.

Let's compare the Trump Wall to the last wall someone put up to separate two nations, the one Ronald Reagan stood in front of in 1987 and ordered General Secretary Gorbachev to tear down.

The Berlin Wall was 110 miles long. The part of the US-Mexican border we haven't already built fences on is 1,350 miles long.

The terrain the Berlin Wall stood on was flat as a pancake. Not so with the Trump wall's path.

Because East Germany was a dictatorship and had absolute control of the land around Berlin, getting clearance to build the wall was more a matter of Erich Honecker picking up the phone to his construction troops and telling them, 'go.' America is not yet a dictatorship, and there are probably, as we speak, hundreds of law firms gearing up to fight land encroachments on both sides of the border.

But more importantly, it took a hell of a lot longer for the Germans to build a hell of a lot less wall. On August 13, 1961, the East Germans closed the roads leading into West Berlin. The DDR went through four iterations of this wall; the last one took until 1980 to build. Once it was "done," they spent the rest of the time they had it up adding to its security, moving dogs around, changing panels, doing maintenance and everything else you might need to do to keep the wall impassable. John Kelly thinks we can throw Trump's 1,350-mile wall up in two years? I think they need to give him a cup and directions to the men's room.
