American pilots need at least 1500 hours and a ATP Certificate to be hired by FAA requirements. Mental health and physical examine are common requirements.
My pilots said with his collective history of mental health issues he wouldn’t have been hired by any American carrier.
Who did he know?

I’ve said that from the beginning.
Obama was placed in the White House by a group of people with an agenda – far more destructive than just democrat, liberalism, socialism, communism – the election was a facade. Obama was just a ‘face’, and sadly people like Ernest thinks he has a real job.
Now just wait until Hillary gets in there…..

“Robin refused to give details on the pilot’s religion, saying: “I don’t think it’s necessarily what we should be looking for.”
“He identified the pilot as a German national and who had never been flagged as a terrorist.”
Well, now that you brought the subject into the conversation, yes, it is something to be looking for – considering the call for world wide mobilization by the leaders of this particular religion…

.I don’t think you should advertise your security system. Residents here have a police registration decal displayed on front window, and a notice of monitored system, that all that’s needed. Security companies send signs just for free advertisement, I refused to stick it in the yard.
We had a stranger walk up to my husband while he do yard work and wanted to know why everyone in the neighborhood seem to have security systems (the signs).
He shrugged his shoulders, saying he didn’t know and the guy continued by asking what kind we had….my husband being very friendly, replied he didn’t know, that was his wife’s department….he even persisted and my husband said his wife didn’t tell him.
I did that on purpose because he would have probably told the guy, just because he’s that friendly….and I’m that suspicious…

My first thought as well: it’s a friend or a friend of a friend, etc.
However much your trust your friends, don’t trust anyone (except immediate adult family) when it comes to firearms and ammo.
The money and other items can be replaced, but knowing your guns are on the blackmarket will give you an ulcer….

…and Fritz is thinking “if I could only get this dorky bandana off my neck, I could do so much better!….and “does my human think he could do any better if I smacked his face with gross looking food products?”
We have domesticated the instincts out of our beloved animals, it’s a wonder they can’t used the toilet and flush it when finished!
But seriously, can you imagine a human doing this over and over for anyone? Fritz really adores you!….but the donuts – not so much.
Golden Retrievers are very devoted family members, and will endure so much from their humans. My Golden was a serious Italian food devotee – loved anything with tomato sauce. She would eat the tomatoes on the vine, just ripened.
Geez it annoyed my husband!

“Why do you torture them and therefore everyone else like that? Blah blah blah babysitting is expensive. That is why God equips every child with two parental units. Leave child with the other parent.”
I realized that had left out a very important point in a situation like this.
The point is yes, it take two people to make a baby but it doesn’t mean one will stick around if life gets tough.
This mother is most likely was embarrassed, mentally, and physically fatigued by her child’s behavior and would have gladly left the child in an environment better suited for the child, but sometimes those situations are not an option.
No family, no husband and a need to purchase groceries forced her to bring the child along this trip and the panicked attempt to find something to calm the child ‘leaving food all over the store’ was sad, and unfortunate.
A luxury trip to the grocery store, knowing her child is safely cared for, is only a distant and unrealistic dream for this woman.
This is real life, and dumping frustrations on the mother and beating this child for behavior that he/she cannot control is not a solution.
As you know there are levels to autism, and high functioning, autistic children learn to communicate through sign language, and it improves the behavior the child and makes the child happier – as well as the family.
The more severe cases are the children that God puts on earth for a reason.
But please do not beat children. Spanking should be used to prevent dangerous behavior.

This child has autism. If you have ever dealt with autistic children, or know a parent who must care for a child of special needs, you become very compassionate and very thankful that your child is healthy. There is very little help or support for people with children suffering with this disease.
A fellow paramedic had an adopted child with autism, and when this child had reached a limit of information and input overload, this was his only way this child could of cope. He would sit down and just cry, he did not have the verbal skills to talk about what he was feeling, and never will.
And finding a baby sitter for a special needs child is expensive IF you can find a sitter.
This ranting video proves that new media sources that we have that offers so much good to society (as in I can see and talk to my military son in Qatar), can become a tool that allows sick people to voice their demented (and frightening) opinions.
I am also ASD and screaming children are an aversive stimuli to me and no one cares if the sound of your out of control melt down addicts causes me considerable distress. I will not swear at you I will just leave. Unfortunately due to inconsiderate persons who think their little ASD snowflake is the only one on the planets whose feelings count,I end up with severe agoraphobia and can't go out to shop except in the middle of the night when the noxious screamers are hopefully not there. BTW screaming would indicate they are being overstimulated . Why do you torture them and therefore everyone else like that? Blah blah blah babysitting is expensive. That is why God equips every child with two parental units. Leave child with the other parent.

“Speculating”…meaning they don’t want to address the truth?
What surprises me is where they are NOT tweeting from: Canada.

Point: for these people to protest in Dekalb Cty/Decatur is like blacks protesting in Harlem.

Sadly, this will only be viewed by the families and community as Allah’s work calling these people into the eternal spring, yet at the very same time some how it will be blamed on America and the anger they feel towards us will increase.
….and they’ve already received a call of condolence from the White House, along with the regularly issued U.S. financial aid.

Of all the faiths that live in Israel, I have yet to hear of any crime against woman this sickening.
 March 21, 2015 at 9:04pm
This is a beautiful child and I hope the same thing happens to this murderer in prison.
Sorry some things cannot be forgiven by a human.
Violation of a child’s trust is right at the top.

I learned cell phone security from my son after his basic training…they are nothing but two way radios.
He will not talk about anything personal over a cell phone, even at home. He has cautioned me to do the same, and if it’s that important, he can come by the house.
One thing I am thankful for is the FaceTime and iMessage with my iPhone and iPad. I can talk to my son even when he is somewhere in the sand pit.
He called (silent notification) from the pit while I was in the theatre watching American Sniper. I went to the lobby to talk to him….and then cried like a mother.
We never discuss anything sensitive, but when you hear of massacre of 137 people in four blasts, you are grateful just to see your son’s face and hear his voice, you don’t care about the facts – or who reads the transcripts…(Yawn…)…you just thank God you can see and hear him.

So, do you think obama realizes that Chicago politics do not work in Israel?

Well sweetie, make your way back to Niger, Algeria, Libya, Chad or Ethiopia and deal with the oppressive poverty, malaria, tinpot dictators AND Boko Haram.
Of course your gut wrenching hatred for anyone and anything but people of your race and religious views makes you a prime candidate for ISIS, so be ready to put your career aside and start giving birth to babies, because DAESH is determined to expand their army with their own children as soon as the babies can pick up a weapon and pull the trigger.

“I was just looking to … channel my inner Jon Stewart on a topic that I think is important,” he said.
Just a suggestion: ask your tax attorney to review the last 7 years of your tax records and have them available……
