I think it must be some kind of flare gun. Maybe different size/colors to be used to alert ground troops as to enemy troop or artillery positions? Or to alert fellow pilots if they get lost out of formation or to some potential danger from anti-aircraft or enemy planes?

You are absolutely right, the pilots used to signal to each other via certain colors of flares.  The British even managed to shoot down a German plane with one, towards the end of WWI.

Maybe Kirk Cameron or Clint Eastwood will make something that will get your interest back, eh?

Or maybe one day you'll be an original enough thinker to do something else besides constantly hammering away at conservative stereotypes on Bellgab, eh?  ::)

How are the plans on opening coal mines, steel plants and the healthcare coming along? Independent data says by 2026 23 million more will be without healthcare than now. And those who have, will be paying at least 300% more than now, some as much as 500%.

Here we go with more fake statistics.  Define ''independent data''.  Tell us whether they are using static or dynamic scoring in making these projections.  Please advise as to whether they are using current levels of coverage, or are they using someone's projected levels as the base line then extrapolating from there.  Whose projected levels of coverage are they using as the current baseline, and how was that determined?

Are these among the folks who remained silent and/or joined in agreement when Obama and the entire Democrat party told us the average family's insurance costs would decline by $2500 a year?  If they didn't speak up at the time and point out those lies, then they are clearly either a) not independent, or b) aren't competent to comment now.  I think we're going to have to find out where these specific individuals and the group that put out these statistics stood in 2009 on ObamaCare before we can determine whether they are truly independent, and whether we can rely on their cost projections.  Doesn't that seem fair, if not obvious?  Surely the media carrying the report gathered this information, and disclosed it?  Because that's what real journalism - as opposed to the Fake Media - does.

And please please tell us why people are no longer responsible for providing for themselves, and why we must destroy a system that works for the people who get up and go to work every day, in favor of the parasites - who have had access to healthcare handout programs all along anyway.

Not true. That independent data you cite counts 19 million that do nof have insurance today.

Fan? They should STFU and donate to the grifting cunt. He didn't get where he is today because fair weather so called friends jumped ship each and every time (always) he told the world to mind their own business, in the same breath as telling the world every tiny detail of his existence including his many real and imagined ailments. Just because he feels fit to describe in graphic detail, every pustulating boil, digestive tract evacuation (planned and accidental), visual impairment, orthopaedic ache due to his obesity, is no excuse to unsubscribe to his meandering, uninteresting, plagarised, boring, aural and visual assault on anyones senses. Senda will be slow to forgive.

Ha!  That mask does look familiar.  What's that hanging on the rack over his left shoulder ?  An early day flare gun?  I guess it is, got some flares by it.  Different sized ones.
