If Ray LaHood Sabotages Air Transportation as He Promises, He Needs to Be Subpoenaed by the House

Hey, House Transportation Chairman Bill Shuster:

Have you been listening to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood’s threats to sabotage air travel should the “devastating” (yet tiny) sequester cuts occur?

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood may be getting ready to leave office, but he is leaving a parting message on the way out at the request of the White House. LaHood said, “Travelers should expect delays of up to 90 minutes at peak airports during sequester, beginning April 1. It’s going to be very painful for the flying public.”

If the sequester takes place, budget cuts will hit the Federal Aviation Administration to the tune of $600 million. LaHood said he was not describing a worst case scenario intended to cause people to fear and place pressure on Republican lawmakers. But then he said, “What I’m trying to do is wake up members of the Congress with the idea that they need to come to the table so we don’t have to have this kind of calamity in air services in America.”

…According to Lahood, the result of the sequester would be the furloughing of many air traffic controllers and closing over 100 air traffic control towers…

    Hey Ray!

    Got a simple solution to that air delay problem-

    Just don’t order them to intentionally delay people!

    Simple and you won’t do it because everything is politics with this administration.

    This fuckstick is a perfect example of a member of what we call “The Combine” here in Illinois, but also what is more broadly becoming known as “The R.I.N.O.” nationally.

    Although LaHood (French Fag-speak for “The Criminal”) is putatively a “Republican”, he’s really just a rudderless shake-down shitbag fuckstick. A coin, as they say, has two sides, and in Illinois, both sides belong to The Combine.

    In older, better times, “people” like LaHood were treated to a special process called “tar & feathering”.

    Oh, to return to that better time!

    Why didn’t he just say,

    “You know, it would be a shame if your plane went down over a lake or something.” with his hand out for a bribe.

    POS!

    Chief-
    I’m still laughing at that.
    Even more now because it just reminded me of a TV crime show I was watching last night that was interviewing some chick named Tequila, about her cousin who murdered someone for a jacket or something.

    Would those be the same controllers that were caught sleeping on the job?

    My privates ATC firm replaced 13 govorment controllers plus management with a total of just 5 of us.

    Over the next several months we got cookies delivered to the tower, Christmas cards, on radio appreciation etc etc. Even the military started using our airport because they could finally get practise in.

    Fuck’em. Let’em go

    The purpose of the sequester is to deal a fatal blow to the US military and blame republicans/conservatives.

    What comes after that will be painful. All a master-manipulators game….

    Defund Amtrak. The extra 1.5 billion a year would pay for our airport harassers of innocent people. Problem solved.
