    Why don't you just demand they go back to flying the Curtiss A-3 Falcon?  http://en.wikipedia.org/...

    Those will be even safer for everybody!

    GIve it up.  You bought a house near a military airbase.  You decided to live next to it, and should have known that the technology changes.  It's your own fault if you don't like it now.  

    You can always move.  Or do you think the Army should be forced to move an entire air wing because you don't like the noise? (give up the "danger" crap - you're completely transparent)

    •  Tell that to the owners of the house, (0+ / 0-)

      of the shards of what was a house where there's now a crater.

      But first, read what they had to say:

      This was more than just an "empty home"...it was our vacation home where we spent holidays all year round. We have ten acres of woods on the property where we would take walks. Our children built forts out of twigs and every time we go we would check to see if any animals used it for shelter. My husband was headed up there with the kids this weekend....A call from the military would have been nice, nothing yet.

      •  And I'll tell em... (0+ / 0-)

        You built it next to a freakin' air base!!!  You CHOSE to have your children "vacation" next to a freakin' air base!!!  You CHOSE to unwrap your Xmas gifts next to a freakin' air base!!!  You CHOSE to put yourselves and your children in an environment of known, increased danger.  Do you think you would have gotten those same ten acres for the same price if they weren't next to a freakin' air base???  If you don't like living next to a freakin' air base, then sell it!

        FIle your insurance claim and shut the hell up.
