Common sense will tell you that the Biden-Harris FAA face mask policy is a disaster waiting to happen when air traffic controllers’ instructions are not accurately understood by pilots, especially foreign pilots who are not fully conversant in the English language, as they approach, land, take off from and climb out of large US international airports. If a disaster does happen, how the Biden-Harris Administration will blame that disaster on Trump remains to be seen!

Absolutely mind boggling stupid and negligent. As a former pilot I can attest one of the most difficult tasks piloting an aircraft is accurate and timely communications the lack of which imperils safety. Masks hinder communications and the person or persons that instituted this rule should be fired and held personally liable for any delays or accidents this stupidity causes.

But, in the event that miscommunication caused a crash, no one would have died from COVID, right?

What have the Air Traffic Controllers done to demand that this insanity cease? Are they fighting back? Or have they wimped out? If a plane crashes because of this insanity the FAA will say "We're so sorry" but no one will held responsible. The TV series "Air Disasters" shows how most fatal aircraft crashes are caused by easily preventable human error. It's said that amendments the FAA Rules and Regulations to improve safety are written in blood.

A mandate is not a law. Refuse to wear one in the interest of personal choice of freedom to be responsible for your own body and for the public safety of others.

Mask mandates are marginally legal only because of a vagueness about "health". This issue puts the health granted by a mask against the health (and lives) of passengers (and crew) in an airplane.

If a jet crashes because of the Biden Mask Mandate will the people who were killed be counted as Covid deaths? Biden & company will then lock down the airlines due to increased deaths related to Covid on commercial airliners. Sounds like Biden/Democrat logic to me.

People try talking through face masks, and I cannot understand a word. Walmart has people from everywhere, speaking in unknown tongue already. It is very hard to discern what anyone is saying these days through a face mask. I pull mine forward and away from my face when I need to get through to anybody.

One way to frame this so Air Lines might back ATC up is that because we will have to repeat transmissions so often we will have to slow traffic down and not be able to operate a full capacity, if your Acft is delayed due to this increased communications time, don't blame the controller.

One only has to try and listen to and understand local news people to understand that wearing a mask and trying to communicate is completely impossible. Air travel doesn't need muffled directions to pilots carrying hundreds of people in planes traveling at 500 miles an hour.

If you want to see the level of routine audio misunderstanding by foreign pilots that air traffic controllers have to put up with, get on the internet and listen to the audio recordings between air traffic controllers and foreign pilots who are not that conversant in the English language at large international airports such as JFKIA at New York City.

My son works at a regional control center and he told me this afternoon that the masks cause no problems in communicating with the pilots. He said that they're hearing about this at work and that, as far as he's concerned, it's a non-issue.

Oprah Winfrey's interview with Queen Elizabeth II's grandson Harry, the Duke of Sussex, and his American wife, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, was a real insight into the couple, and what was revealed was unflattering to both. These two healthy, handsome and incredibly wealthy people, who enjoy a lavish lifestyle unknown to all but a tiny fraction of a percentage of the population of the entire world, came across as ungrateful, shallow and shockingly self-absorbed. Using an internationally broadcast interview to air personal grievances, hurts and slights -- real or perceived -- is indescribably shabby. Instead of resolving their differences privately with those they claim to love and respect,

Donald Trump on Tuesday released a statement on the crisis at the border. Joe Biden reversed Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy, promised amnesty, and allowed unaccompanied migrant children into the US which caused a surge of illegal border crossings in the last several weeks. Biden is also flooding the US with Covid-infected illegal aliens. Several reporters asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the border crisis and she spun like a top and passed the blame onto the DHS.

One of the most despicable things about the Biden administration is that, even as it doubles and triples down on the COVID restrictions it wants for Americans, it’s utterly unconcerned about the diseases flooding across the border along with the illegal aliens Biden is unconstitutionally welcoming in. The president and CEO of Greyhound Lines, though, is demanding that, at the very least, its workers and other passengers get protected from the COVID so many illegal aliens bring with them. From the start of his campaign, Biden weaponized the Wuhan virus against Trump. Informed and intelligent people realized very quickly that Trump was moving with extraordinary rapidity

Biden has issued Executive Orders that ban enforcing immigration law while simultaneously inviting in a new wave of illegal immigrants. These EOs also suspend deporting illegal immigrants, even those awaiting trial for felonies and other serious crimes, and signal that all new arrivals will be eligible for social benefits such as healthcare. Cesar Chavez’s struggle in the 1970s and ‘80s can help explain the impact this will have on labor markets in general and working-class Americans in particular. Chavez understood that illegal immigration diminishes workers’ earning power.

It began with throw pillows. Pillows shouldn't matter much, but like every decision we make now, they matter more than you think. The old sofa had to go. It had lasted 25 years, by some miracle. The old sofa was U.S.-made. Only 20% of today's furniture is. It was expensive; the store owner told us we'd be able re-upholster it down the road, though that would be expensive, too. He was right on both counts. He retired. His kids run the store now. We managed to find a new sofa, also made here. A different color. So we needed throw pillows.

Buried within the $1.9 trillion emergency spending bill that Congress sent to President Joe Biden's desk on Wednesday is a provision that could effectively block states from cutting taxes if they accept federal bailout dollars. That provision, added to the bill by the Senate last week, could put a halt to several states' plans to cut taxes this year as a way to stimulate economic growth following the COVID-19 pandemic. Depending on how the text is interpreted, the measure could also make it illegal for states to create new tax credit programs like the ones that have become a popular mechanism for expanding school choice.
