You have it half right... there business is selling fear to the masses, who then gladly turn over there money for a since of security
and when nothing bad happens they play it up to the world "look how good we are"

fear is a great motivator....

Interesting place to stop: on the highway with your pants down and a truck coming

The maniacal grin makes it even better

Don' t forget he was also spotted topless on the road out of Jalcomulco!
He keeps his clothes on in restaurants and bars, however.

No worries, we can always take up a collection for him to buy a really well used and poorly maintained Soviet transport plane!
What? You say he wants to buy American?
Ok!
Let's get him a 737-200 from an African airline that has been having financial trouble!

Or maybe some wings made of wax and feathers and call him Icarus Nieto.

Seriously? He's getting a 787, WTF!?

Probably figures the people can eat cake

What a douche, next six years should be interesting

Fascinating. I shouldn't be, but I continue to be amazed at the breadth of life experiences found among the ADV inmates.

The Black Cauldron?

I think 787 orders are: "Get in line!"

May not be ready in 6 years, esp. with the build issues they've been having.

I think Jomamma has some thread about a russian tanker in Marquette Mich(igan) that may be available. Maybe they could sign Trice up to fly the thing?

In regards to Bato's pic with his pants down along the highway, is that because the Federale's Charger is parked in front of the bike, and he is outside the picture, putting on his blue gloves? (Snap!)
