Something must be attracting them....

First it was a B-29 flying over my house, now it is a Ford Tri-Motor.

Must be something in the air.



Oh, sorry for the aviation content.

And in other news from Oklahoma

Police: Woman beheaded at Oklahoma workplace

Good thing the company didn't have a "gun free" policy.

Lewis said the man then stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, a number of times before being shot by Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff's deputy and the company's chief operating officer.

From my youngest son's contacts with the OKC Police Department, the suspect was fired for promoting religion in the work place after repeated warnings to stop. There was some sort of relationship between the woman he killed (beheaded) and he was mad because she would not convert to Islam.

However, the person that shot the suspect I was told was an off duty Oklahoma County Deputy Sheriff that was working as a security guard for the company, not the company's chief operating officer. But, not all the facts are out as of yet.

Now, before anyone jumps to the erroneous conclusion that he was fired just because he was promoting Islam, there have been many people fired from their jobs here in OKC for promoting Christian religions, usually Baptist, as well.

The son of my former boss, a well known multi-millionaire, was fired for just that, promoting the Baptist religion. So if the son of a very rich and well know person can be fired, it is quite obvious anyone can for promoting any religion in the work place.

But you shouldn't be fired for promoting the religion of peace, while beheading the recipients of that promotion

Okay, an update on the beheading by a member of the Religion of Peace here in Oklahoma City.

The suspect, Alton Nolen, did not know his victims, the one he beheaded nor the second female he attacked with the same knife he used to stab and behead the first female. The two women were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

There still seems to be confusion on whether the off-duty reserve Oklahoma County Deputy, Mark Vaughan, that shot Nolen is the company's chief operating officer or a security guard. As I can't see him being both.

Vaughan shot Nolen several times with a rifle, type undisclosed. Nolen is in hospital in critical condition, but is expected to recover. So seeing Vaughan used a rifle, I’d say he probably is the company's chief operating officer, as if he was a security guard, he would have been in a uniform and would have had a pistol.

I'm sure the local TV stations evening news shows will have more details tonight.

Please keep us posted, especially on the possibility of attempted murder charges aginst Mark Vaughan, the shooter, as I know that's how NBC will spin it.

There's only one reliable news source these days, and that's a local Ppruner. Keep it coming con-pilot; it's much appreciated.

Company cost cutting, multi trade

Sorry be serious, I wonder if Obama will say if I had a brother he would be just like him. I wonder when the rioting will start, or will that depend on if the victims where white or black?

Okay, just watched NBC Nightly News and now I know how President Obama and the DNC wants the Oklahoma beheading story handled.

Not a single word or reference to Islam or that Nolen was Muslim, nor that he was shouting Islamic sayings while he attacked the two women, beheading one of them.

Unfrickin' believable.

Yes, and an entire 17 seconds to report it.

Followed by a 3 minute report on Eric Holder's "achievements"

Now if the omissions were to avoid copycat killings,or indeed revenge killings in response, that would be understandable.

But they weren't.

I have a question about this idiot, Eric Frein, who shot Pa troopers. Why is he dressed in a Serbian uniform, wearing what looks like a Serbian Ortodox cross, and smoking Serbian cigarettes? He sure doesn't sound like he is Serbian, by name.

Now from the local news.

Mark Vaughan, the reserve Oklahoma County Deputy Sheriff that shot Nolen, had to leave his office, run out to the parking lot to his car to get his rifle. Then return into the office hallway where he shot Nolen three times.

On Nolen's Facebook home page he calls himself by a Islamic name and the background photo is a picture of armed IS terrorists.

But of course NBC in its infinite wisdom decided that its viewers, the American Public, didn't need to know any of this information.

It's just another "workplace violence" event.

He's a Cold War reenactor. Just like the folks who redo Gettysburg there are people who redo the Balkan War.

So this Oklahoma beheader is a Muslim, and he's a black man. I can't find any reference or photographs of the woman he beheaded, so I have to assume she was white or it would have been reported.

I don't think we're going to see the race baiters, Sharpton, Jackson and Holder descending on this scene. No payoff here. And this victim of racial and religious hatred certainly doesn't look like she could be an offspring of Barack the Magnificent.

Bad guy stopped with, gasp, an "assualt rifle."

Just another example of a white (reserve) cop shooting a black man.

Who was out on parole because the prisons are too "full of black men for it not to be a racial tragedy" according to "my people" Eric Holder.

Stereotype piling upon stereotype to include the "religion of peace" angle.

Funny, you do think Sharpton would be all over this one...

Guess he's too busy helping with Attorney General selection.

I dunno, maybe Holder will be chanelling James Traficant, who died today. I had to read most of the way through the news columns to find out that he was a Democrat.

Sooo, Barry appears on 60 Minutes last night.

His failure to do anything about IS/ISIS/ISIL until now is not his fault. He says the Intelligence Community got it wrong.

So he is admitting that intel can be wrong. Somehow, the media and many here don't seem to play that tune when it came to Dubya and WMDs.

The fact that videotape of the DNI and the Director, CIA testifying in open proceedings to Congress about this very named threat back in February of this year simply doesn't exist apparently.

Or the leaked reports that Obama has been receiving daily intel updates that include the threat as it grew. But he had labeled them as "the JV" so therefore he couldn't be wrong.

That Barry. He's quick to use "I" when it comes to killing bin Laden or "ending the war in Iraq," but it is always someone else's fault when he gets it wrong.

Convenient. Especially when most of the US and, seemingly, all of the foreign press goes along with him.
