Spin Zone / The Looming “1984” Election
« on: November 12, 2019, 05:24:39 AM »
Victor Davis Hanson nails it.

“The choice in reductionist terms will be one between a growing, statist Panopticon, fueled by social media, a media-progressive nexus, and an electronic posse. Online trolls and government bureaucrats seek to know everything about us, in Big Brother fashion to monitor our very thoughts to ferret out incorrect ideas, and then to regiment and indoctrinate us to ensure elite visions of mandated equality and correct behavior—or else!

“In other words, the personality quirks of a Trump or an Elizabeth Warren or a Bernie Sanders will become mostly irrelevant given the existential choice between two quite antithetical ideas of future America. In 2020 we will witness the penultimate manifestation of what radical progressivism has in store for us all—and the furious, often desperate, and unfettered pushback against it.”

Spin Zone / Kin?

WTF is Kin, and why should I give it? 

This keeps popping up on some SZ threads. Every time you scroll up, this thing follows. Irritating as fuck on Tapatalk.

Spin Zone / Don’t sunbathe naked, boys

Experts say the fearsome bird mistook the man’s exposed privates as a couple of birds eggs and dropped in for a tasty snack.

As the man – who has not been named – dozed on his patio in his detached home near Ipswich, the seagull swooped from the sky, and with one bite of its beak ripped away the right testicle.

A spokesman for research group Seagull Watch International confirmed that seagulls often feed on the eggs of small birds.

“Eggs are full of protein – it’s why we eat them, after all. Gulls will often steal other birds’ eggs, so it is unfortunate for this man that his private parts resembled a couple of eggs in a nest.

Pilot Zone / Is Obama not aware the oceans are rising?
« on: August 23, 2019, 10:34:26 AM »
Apparently not after buying a mansion on Martha’s Vineyard with 29 acres of oceanfront property.

And here I thought he was a true believer. I guess not.

Pilot Zone / OSHKOSH! (AirVenture for some)

I’m about to take a departure from SZ for a little bit. I work up at EAA on Flightline Ops, marshaling aircraft coming off of the runways. So I’ll be all Aviation, all the time for the next couple of weeks.

Here’s a video of what I do, filed by one of my fellow Flightline Ops volunteers:


If you’re flying in, give your marshalers a nice wave and a thank you. We will be spending 3-4 hours at a crack standing on taxiways in the brutal heat (or rain and thunderstorms depending on the hour) keeping traffic moving safely.

Keep up the good fight in the Spin Zone while I’m gone! 

Pilot Zone / The American Left’s Army of Dupes
« on: July 10, 2019, 11:07:54 AM »
“The hierarchy of the left in America today may euphemistically refer to their brand of socialism as Democratic Socialism and emphasize their unattainable benevolence, but their end game is the same with the exception of an authoritarian oligarchy in control instead of a tyrannical dictator.

“This hierarchy, and potential oligarchy, is made up of a large component of tenured academics at America’s universities; major financial supporters of left-wing causes; a significant segment of management at the mainstream media; many dominant producers and executives in the entertainment establishment; numerous Democratic Party elected headliners; and the titans of Silicon Valley.

“Meanwhile, all of you in the rank and file left need to grow up, focus on developing the cognitive ability to reason and generate an original thought and leave behind the infantile Nazi, Fascist and white supremacist name-calling as well as infatuation with Marxist Socialism which only benefits those in the hierarchy of your movement who couldn’t care less about you except to view you as useful idiots.”

Pilot Zone / Home Depot Boycott
« on: July 09, 2019, 03:29:17 PM »
Apparently the co-founder of Home Depot, who retired 15 years ago, had the temerity to spend $7 million in 2016 supporting Donald Trump, but it gets worse!  He had the gall to announce that Hess supporting Trump in 2020. 

Obviously, that’s grounds to call for a boycott of Home Depot by the TDS-suffering left. 

Oh, and he also stated that he will give 80% to 90% of his $5.8 BILLION to charity when he dies. But he gets no quarter for that because Trump used the word “pussy.”

The tyranny of the left is breathtaking.

Pilot Zone / Happy Father’s Day!
« on: June 16, 2019, 08:52:45 AM »
To all you dads out there, enjoy the day.

I gave this to my daughter to spread around. By the way that’s triple Ace Robin Olds, not me.

Pilot Zone / Name? DOB? Gender?
« on: June 07, 2019, 10:23:37 AM »
So I’m at the blood center donating platelets and am currently hooked up to a machine for the next 84 minutes.

They changed what they ask you when you check in. Now I have to state my gender.

I said “You’re kidding me?”  Phlebotomist says “Nope. Politics.”  I said “trumps science.”  She smiled. 


Pilot Zone / Racism: A Public Health Crisis
« on: May 20, 2019, 07:20:02 AM »
Milwaukee County says racism is a public health crisis. It’s one of the most segregated cities in the country, and has been lead by Democrats or Socialists for over 100 consecutive years. You can’t make this stuff up.

Pilot Zone / Gathering of Warbirds
« on: May 15, 2019, 08:43:26 AM »
If anyone happens to be in Wisconsin/Northern Illinois on Memorial Day Saturday, come join us at our airshow!  The show is at the Waukesha County Airport, KUES.

I’m Chairman of this show, which is sponsored by the Commemorative Air Force, Wisconsin Wing. I’m also our Wing Leader, and am flying the Fairchild PT-26 Cornell shown in the center picture at the bottom. I’m definitely NOT flying the F-86 Sabre.

Spin Zone / “Democracy Dollars”
« on: May 01, 2019, 10:20:20 AM »
I don’t think this is The Onion:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand has announced a plan to give every voter up to $600 in vouchers to donate to a spate of federal candidates.
