The guy in the lawn chair did almost 4 hours!I'm not impressed...A ticket on that flight cost $30million, and Chuck Yaeger did the same thing in the Bell X-1 75 yrs ago.
Thirty yrs after the Wrights flew at Kitty Hawk, there were several airlines flyng a regular schedule of flights all over the world. ...Fifty five yrs after Kitty Hawk, air travel was so safe, cheap & convenient that the passenger RRs went out of business....
...but 75 yrs after the X-1 all we can do is repeat that "flight" of 10 minutes....It's not much more than an expensive theme park ride.
Liz is wrong. Bezos did give thanks to the workers and shoppers of Amazon.Vermont's Bernie Sanders hit out the billionaire for spending his wealth on flying to space rather than focusing on paying his staff enough on Earth.
‘Am I supposed to be impressed that a billionaire went to space while he’s paid zero in federal income taxes some years and the workers at his company struggle to afford their medical bills, rent, and food for their kids?’ the Vermont senator tweeted.
‘Nope. It’s time to invest in working people here on Earth.’
Fellow Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren also took aim at Bezos over his lack of tax payments, retweeting a post quoting the billionaire’s comments during the press conference.
‘Jeff Bezos forgot to thank all the hardworking Americans who actually paid taxes to keep this country running while he and Amazon paid nothing,’ she tweeted.
Ironic isn't it?What my state Senator said on FB
Just a little amused over the last couple of days and years of stupidity. A billionaire shoots a giant dildo 60 miles into the sky and said he is doing it for our future due to climate change and people are in awww.
Meanwhile, farmers who feed the world are considered by urban dwellers as **** and polluters. They take the sulfur(natural lubricant)out of the diesel, to make it cleaner, and we have to pay to apply the sulfur to the soils due to a loss of atmospheric sulfur sources. They choke the Diesel engine down and re-burn the exhaust with DEF that greatly reduces the life and reliability of the engine. Wonder how many tractors and for how many years could have ran without these stupid measures for ever launch of a hippie billionaire’s giant member?
