  1. LAS VEGAS - An Air Force official says the crash of an F-15 jet in the Nevada desert during a training exercise has left one pilot dead and the other injured.

    Air Force spokesman Andrew Dumboski says the two-seater plane went down at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday on the Nevada Test and Training Range outside of Goldfield, Nev.

    The names of the pilots were not immediately released. Dumboski says the injured pilot is in stable condition and is under observation at Mike O'Callaghan Federal Hospital.

    The pilots were assigned to the 65th Aggressor Squadron at Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas.

    Goldfield is about 180 miles north of the
    base.
     
  2. Looks like more F-22s are going to needed soon.
     
  3. Looks like US has to borrow more money from China
     
  4. Naaah all US needs to do is cut public government services. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  5. Yeah, no more firefighting to save forests and rich folks houses, no more public schools either just to be fair to both ends of the spectrum. F22's are so hot, gotta have those first.
     
  6. We pay more towards social security than your entire country makes. We can afford to give up some useless functions that only help lazy people.
     
  7. Ghetto trash bags needs get a real job.
     
  8. Not to say that social security should be dropped on the spot, but there is a huge waste of money on programs and projects that shouldn't exist.
     
  9. LOL
     
  10. It's entirely reasonable for the States to cut a hell of a lot from public schools. The US spends (per capita) more than nearly everyone in primary and secondary schools, behind only Austria and Switzerland, and yet countries that spend fractions of what the US does like Canada, Australia, South Korea, and Finland, all consistently score higher than the US in secondary school achievement and competence.

    Obviously the US has a lot more students than any of those four, and so its spending includes a lot of overhead for the added bureaucracy involved, but it still suggests to me there's a problem in their educational philosophy.
     
  11. sorry guys. I just said that as a joke <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  12. More F-22s, por favor!
     
  13. Privatize educational institutes and we will see better results .
     
  14. ...or their massive Su-27/Su-30 (J-11 in Chinese terms) will overmatch your "diminishing" air force too.
     
  15. I kind of agree with you on this, after doing community services at food banks and community centers. Some people are in serious need of motivation to get jobs instead of relying solely on benefits provided by the government. Too much benefits from government ruins that motivation.
     
  16. The fedgov has no business operating anything remotely related to welfare. If states want to do it that's cool. If they did do it, I'd hope that they only helped productive people that fell on hard times or lazy asses who promise improvement. I'd also hope that they gave vouchers for specific, necessary items like milk/eggs/clothes. That way they couldn't blow it all on lobster or some bullshit. Then they need to audit these people on a regular basis to see if they need to be shitcanned. You only get so much time to improve, those who want a leg up and falsely promise improvement won't get to abuse the system for long.
     
  17. We already have more F-22s in service than the PLAAF has J-11s. Your point doesn't work.
