It’s only a plane! Get over it!

I am absolutely gobsmacked over how many people have decided that they still need to wear their self-made 9/11 scars like a victim badge. A ton of people got butthurt today all because a silly plane flew over manhattan with F16s in tow:

NEW YORK (CNN)—A White House official apologized Monday after a low-flying Boeing 747 spotted above the Manhattan skyline frightened workers and residents into evacuating buildings.

The aircraft was a White House plane taking part in a classified, government-sanctioned photo shoot, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

Just listen to these self-important idiots try to make a nothing-story all about them:

The incident outraged many New Yorkers, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

“First thing is, I’m annoyed—furious is a better word—that I wasn’t told,” he said, calling the aviation administration’s decision to withhold details about the flight “ridiculous” and “poor judgment.”

Awww, I’m sooo sorry, Mikey! I’m sure the FAA will be sure to tell you from now on about every military or government flight that goes over your precious city, ‘kay? And how bout next time when you decide to push term limits and get the public to think they have a voice in politics, you tell us that you’re only foolin’ before you yank it all away, hah?

But while the mayor was throwing a temper tantrum, some Ph.D. decided this would be an excellent money making opportunity. 9/11 bailout, anyone?

Linda Garcia-Rose, who works with nearly two dozen post-traumatic stress disorder patients ages 15 to 47, said she was inundated with phone calls from patients Monday morning.

“They’re traumatized. They’re asking ‘How could this happen?’ They’re nervous. Their anxiety levels are high,” she said.

Garcia-Rose is considering filing a class-action suit against the government for sanctioning the plane’s unannounced flight. “I believe the government has done something really wrong,” she said.

No dear, you’re the one doing something wrong. It’s been seven and a half years, and your patients still wet their knickers when a plane flies overhead? Your patients should be suing you!

People, I’m sorry to tell you this, but there are limits to being coddled and made to feel all fuzzy by the government. We need to quit acting like children, frightened over the boogeyman whenever a jet happens to roar overhead. We have truly become a nation of sniveling weaklings, and if we haven’t gotten over this nearly a decade after it happened, then in that regard the terrorists truly have won.

    I’ve got to disagree with you here, man. As someone present for both events, I realize I have a slightly different take than you though. Would say more, may later if I have time, but I’ve got to get off the train now. 🙂

    i wonder why the cut off age is 47? 48 is too old but 46 is just fine? that’s just absurd.

    also flying a large jet really low over NYC is a bad idea at any time.
