By now most of the nation has heard about the single-engine aircraft which was driven into the side of a building in Austin, Texas. Despite the fact that “confirmed reports” cannot agree about whether the plane was an aluminum Piper Cherokee or a composite Cirrus SR-22, the claim that the pilot was a suicidal “right wing nut case” seems to be accepted without question by the Progressive Press.
Color me EXTREMELY skeptical about this whole stinking thing. Too much rat odor here to ignore.
The building is coincidentally named “Echelon“; the well-known code name for the “Big Brother” e-spying tool which taps phones and emails without benefit of something once known as a “warrant”. The guy is made to sound like a poster child for the Tea Party “extremists” — and he fits every stereotype that even Glen Beck-like “conservatives” love to ridicule.
And, last but not least, he uses a general aviation airplane, rather than a car or truck or any other arguably more effective tool.
If there ever was an all-to-perfect excuse for getting rid of the last remaining freedom to travel in the US, this looks to be it. Too convenient.
Peons must stop at checkpoints, after all.
We will no doubt be hearing how NO ONE should be allowed to fly without Big Brother’s Blessing, and small planes must be banned from Amerikan Skies.
