Well come April along with no tours of the White House there will be no air traffic controllers @ these Arkansas airports. This will effectively shut these airports down.
Springdale, Fort Smith, Fayetteville, Rogers and Texarkana. Notice this doesn't effective Wal-Marts airport. Wonder why?

I don't suppose "o" would consider suspending his golf week-ends, would he? I guess that would be too unreasonable, since he "works" so hard! icon_really_happy_guy.gif naw.gif

Sorry but Fayetteville Airport, Drake Field aka Fayetteville Executive Airport is one of the airports in Arkansas on the list to lose its air traffic controllers. The Northwest Regional Airport XNA, at Highhill 15 miles from Bentonville where Wal-Mart is headquartered is not scheduled to lose there controllers.

To put it bluntly, the people we elect to represent us have a warped sense of priorities when it comes to how they choose to spend our hard-earned tax dollars.

They don't have the money to take care of infrastructure or pay air traffic controllers in the U.S., but they can throw money at so-called reconstruction of what we destroyed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Much of $60B from US to 'rebuild' Iraq wasted; $90B spent on Afghanistan 'reconstruction' projects

06 Mar 2013 Ten years and *60 billion in American taxpayer funds later, Iraq is still so unstable and broken that even its leaders question whether U.S. efforts to rebuild the war-torn nation were worth the cost. In his final report to Congress, Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction Stuart Bowen's conclusion was all too clear: Since the invasion a decade ago this month, the U.S. has spent too much money in Iraq for too few results. The abysmal Iraq results forecast what could happen in Afghanistan, where U.S. taxpayers have so far spent *90 billion in reconstruction projects during a 12-year military campaign... Overall, including all military and diplomatic costs and other aid, the U.S. has spent at least *767 billion since the American-led invasion of Iraq, according to the Congressional Budget Office. National Priorities Project, a U.S. research group that analyzes federal data, estimated the cost at *811 billion, noting that some funds are still being spent on ongoing projects.

And here's another one:

US Spending Hundreds of Millions on Secret Israeli Bunkers

09 Mar 2013 Last year, it was announced the U.S. was looking to build a secret underground complex in Israel. On February 13, a contract was awarded to Conti Corp Federal Services in Edison, NJ to complete the project. Their bid of almost *63 million came in well below the possible *100 million set aside for the project. Conti's bid went toward building five underground levels and six above ground buildings that they have 900 days from February 13 to complete. The U.S. government then issued another request for proposal December 28 to construct Site 81 Phase II. Also in Israel, also partially underground, this project calls for up to *100,000,000 to refinish six underground facilities and some currently occupied surface buildings.

And don't forget about the 700 Billion of our tax dollars that went to bail out the fat cats on Wall Street, while the rest of us get austerity. Don't try to tell me we can't afford Social Security and Medicare anymore. Our government's priorities need a serious reality check. What's the matter with putting our tax dollars to work here at home?
