 I love the way the LEO tries to tie-in the loss of the "Ghetto Bird" with the fact that they were incompetent, or failed to maintain equipment properly, for situations exactly like this. [ were supposedly trained for]  It's always someone elses fault<  #accidentshappen

So the market is going to crash on Monday then? They have given us threat of India vs. China war, "Trade war with China starts tomorrow", "Crazy white Nazi" false flag (possibly), NK trouble and a helicopter crash, all in short order. What is missing?  If they get momentum going with false flaggery and BS don't think they wont use the superstition surrounding the eclipse to increase fear and distraction.  What is missing, maybe a spontaneous gay combusting... or spontaneous combustion of a gay.I'm glad you guys are here to witness the last handful of years.  What has happened is one of those things where if you were among a handful of survivors and were telling the tale nobody would believe you.  Its always good to have other witnesses when that stuff goes down because this is all that weird.

Oh dear gawd.... Please don't tell me.... "Crazed lunatic right wing Nationalist Nazi Jefferson loving racist vagina hating psychos just sniped a helicopter because they hate equality.  Clearly we must do something about these fanatics and shut down the alt-right media and Constitution that fuels this insanity." -Deep state banker Bolsheviks

Ooops.  They were on the way to shutting down a lawful assembly of White people while ignoring the unpermitted Anti-Whites to create havoc in the streets that led to a death and injuries.

"unknown if any souls are still onboard"

Unknown if there were ever any souls in those on board.

The souls could be still on board, you would not know it.

Virginia's day has been a Marx Brothers parody.  The state governor, Terry McAuliffe is a Clinton butt-boy corruptocrat who called out the National Guard against YT's but would never do it for BLM nigger rioters.  The Charlottesville mayor is a jew cuck/libtard who denigrated the evil YT protestors.  The Charlottesville U.S. Congressman was interviewed on Faux Jews, I mean Fox News, by a negro correspondent and the congressman cucked the whole time.  One of Virginia's U.S. Senators was also interviewed and he cucked himself as well.  The stupid local yokel police and state police did nothing to protect the protesters by keeping the bussed-in George Soros astroturf paid counter-protesters away from the protesters.  Some leftist sh*t-head drove his car over his own libtard buddies, killing one.  And now, a Keystone Kop helicopter crashes.  Typical jew/libtard/Marxist malicious stupidity.

Watergate burglars.I regret the violence but do doff my hat to those that are defending our Confederate heritage.At least they aren't the same ilk of cowardly revisionists that caused South Carolina and Georgia to modify their once beautiful state flags and the removal of statues of Confederate Heroes in New Orleans and the changing of the names of schools in Houston, to erase the names of the Confederate patriots at taxpayer expense.In Dixieland I take my stand!

Watergate burglarsAs Robert E. Lee put his love of Virginia before his employment with the US Army, I can fully understand why Virginians might be a little sensitive about having General Lee's name and statue stricken from the park established in his honor.It is totally correct that this action opens old wounds mistaken thought to be forgotten.When you've had enough one-sided tolerance and inclusion and multiculturalism and your race being the only one capable of racism, some pushback shouldn't come as a surprise.

if you are with a guy (that's right a guy) who flew 5,000 hours in 'nam, he will give the old autorotation a shot, probably even did it before over there...BUT those guys are getting too old to be hovering anymore so you'll get some chimp doing poo like this with a tail rotor strike in the trees & Goodbye To You.

P.S.T. timezone. I got a phone call from an elderly lady that woke me up from my dreamy best sleep time. "Sorry, wrong number", the old girl said.I rolled into the living room and told Wife I was getting Trolled by the Ancient Woman and had an Ear Worm. For those not in the Know, an Ear Worm is when you wake up and you have a song in your head or a song that remains in the head. It must be a Psychological condition or whatever, but....I told her I have got Drive in Saturday going through my head. This is a true story. I sat up on the side of the bed and I have a music track in my head.I have no claims or anything, the Lyrics are not Nostradamic or anything. Just a dull true story from my living room.Drive in Saturday. I thought it was a bit weird later after seeing the Car smash thing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSaO-0od2Nw
