Were The Pilots Of The Two Doomed Boeing 737 Max 8 Aircraft Fighting A Malicious Software Program Determined To Crash The Planes?

THE BOEING 737 MAX 8, BILLED BY BOEING AS ITS MOST TECHNOLOGICALLY-ADVANCED AIRCRAFT TO-DATE At the root of October’s Lion Air crash was a new safety system installed in the MAX 8 plane, known as the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), that automatically pulls the plane’s nose down if data suggests it is at risk. In that flight, the system was responding to faulty data that suggested the nose was tilted at a higher angle than it was, indicating the plane was at risk of stalling. The pilots subsequently engaged in a futile tug-of-war with the plane’s automatic systems,...

SOUTHWEST AIRLINES STILL FERRYS PASSENGERS AROUND ON A PLANE THAT KILLED ALL PASSENGERS ON BOARD TWICE IN THE LAST FIVE MONTHS.

DONALD TRUMP STREAMING NONSENSE ABOUT HOW HE IS STILL TRYING TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AS EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES FAILS, YET HIS SUPPORTERS STILL CLAP I have a degree in economics, so maybe I am biased, but my training and my experience, having run several businesses, tells me that financial success is a funny thing: it can’t be achieved by ignoring the facts of math and physics. It’s kinda’ cute when a politician says 1 plus 1 equals 3, especially when you are so blinded, and you want to believe it. But that is not how the universe works....

Bernie Sanders Is A Scam Artist, But Donald Trump Is Still Way Better At It

I have never liked Bernie Sanders. First off, I always felt his promises to the youngest and most gullible population – to deliver FREE COLLEGE – was one of the most disingenuous and sleazy-because-he-knew-it-was-impossible promises a candidate for president could make. How you make that happen would in itself be expensive if not highly unlikely. And it sure as hell would piss off those like me who paid tens and hundreds of thousands to get a college degree. But again, and more important, it would just be impossible. Yet he made the most impossible promise to the youngest, most...

BLACKWATER ‘KILLING MACHINE’ FOUNDER ERIK PRINCE AND SISTER BETSY DEVOS, HIRED BY DONALD TRUMP TO CLOSE DOWN U.S. PUBLIC EDUCATION Born-billionaires, brother and sister, Erik Prince and Betsy DeVos, clearly weren’t happy with just being the ‘top .5%’ Erik felt a need to start a for-profit killing machine call ‘Blackwater.’ You know, the killers for hire George W. Bush hired to kill innocent Iraqis. Oh, and we just found out he lied under oath to Congress, then laughed it off.

Donald Trump, YOU’RE FIRED

DONALD TRUMP, PRETENDING TO BE A REAL BOSS ON ‘THE APPRENTICE’ ‘Mr. Winner’ keeps losing at lightening speed. Stock market, down every day. Standing in the world, destroyed.
