Look I think what Trump did was reprehensible and he should be convicted during his impeachment trial, but isn't bombing a bit much?

Man, I heard one of them yesterday at lunch time all the way down here in southwest Orlando.  I thought one of my neighbors was having their palm trees cut down and replace (pretty common).

Target Mar-a-Lago.

Huh. They're doing this in a National Forest and not on a military site or something?

They built the range in the middle of frickin' nowhere. "No one would be daft enough to build here," they said.

"Always be mindful of larger animals including black bears and practice bear-wise measures,"

If only there was some type of aircraft mounted weapon that could be deployed there...

The bombings will continue until morale improves

It is Federal land, the military tends to establish bombing ranges in the middle of National forests where there are not many people around that could get a bomb accidentally dropped on them (there are really not that many military bases that have the space for an impact area big enough to establish safe bombing target areas using live munitions, other than Nellis out in Nevada, so they have to establish them somewhere, and they also have a big bombing range located out in Lake Superior, in an area that has almost no ship traffic).

I think the Navy should bomb Jeffrey Epstein's "Little Saint James" island.

Aim for Walt Disney World, there's no intelligent life there.

No, they're clearly not getting the message yet.

Looking at it on Google Maps is way more fun.  Scroll around, obvious "SAM sites" here and there.

Yes. Random bombing throughout the national Forest. Not in a specified military controlled area.

I like the part about the 'drop bear's.

TFH: Will your house shake again? Navy to continue bombing in Florida

Betteridge's law applies, especially since I don't live in America's wang.

What, you were expecting me to read through the whole article?

No.  And they should help out the town by bombing the helipad that he's supposed to dismantle.

No. It's exactly what 45** deserves.

Instead of using bombs, couldn't the U.S. Navy save tax dollars by sending Bugs Bunny to Florida with a saw instead?

To be fair, the Air Force has been hating on Nevada for decades.

Ocala forest. They do this all the time with live and inert payloads for training purposes.
 
2021-01-23 7:57:40 AM  
Yup, heard them Thursday. I've been a DeBary resident for 4 years and got used to them. My neighbors who have lived here seemingly decades are still on the FB groups posting "What was that?!?!?!!!!??!!111"
