Yale fail: Ivy leaguers sign 'petition' to repeal First Amendment

The New York Times’s Anti–Second Amendment Hysteria Continues

 Last   weekend, to great self-generated fanfare, the New York Times ran its first front-page editorial in 95 years. Its vital subject: The scourge of so-called “assault weapons,” which, the editors contended, must not only be “outlawed for civilian ownership” but confiscated from those who are already in possession of them. By taking this action, they submitted, the United States would “end the gun epidemic” and at long last reclaim “its sense of decency.

“It’s all about individualism and the right to be whatever you want.”

College Op-Ed: The Phrase ‘Man Cave’ Is Offensive

We need a good plague, one that targets these weak-minded ingrates. That, or maybe right-wing death squads…

Here's another offensive word for those weenies...COCKPIT. Now, they've managed to change that to 'Flightdeck' on multi-pilot platforms in the civilian world. I don't know how an all-female crew piloting a C-17 refers to the 'control space' but would be interested in first-hand knowledge if you're out there. I'd like to think any female flight crew in the military would be head and shoulders above the liberal feminist types, but I dunno...

@sonoboy: years ago I was on a flight with an all-female flight crew. During the preflight chatter in which the pilot introduced herself and the rest of the crew, she commented "And on this flight the area where we fly the plane is not called the cockpit, it is the hen house. I almost fell out of my seat laughing--the other passengers around me obviously appreciated the humor as well.

My first woman pilot in the early 90s commented about the future and the eventual all female crew. We had a 12 'man' crew back then in the P-3 world. She laughed the loudest when I pointed out it would be ugly until their cycles lined up.

I had one flight on a P-3 Charlie out of NAS Jacksonville in '75. Checking my logbook just now, it was 10-1/2 hours! Since I was an AW on an S-3A out of NAS Cecil Field, I was used to much shorter flights. It was a cross training flight just to give us an idea of the capabilities of our land-based brethren. It was nice being able to walk around, but the stiff-winged design of the P-3 transmitted every little bit of turbulence, if memory serves.
