Goodnight, sweet high flying jet prince

“If we can give hundreds of billions of dollars away to banks, under two billion for some more high tech fighter craft doesn’t sound so bad, right?”


“Well, how about a jet that doesn’t have that great of a design, but is still functional?”



That’s essentially what happened at Congress on Tuesday. The majority of the Senate, in a 58-40 vote, sided with President Obama and cut the money for making F-22’s. Which, in all honesty, is a smart and logical move. The F-22 is a bucket wheel excavator when we generally just need to dig a few fence posts. It’s totally awesome to see in person when it’s moving, but it’s neither cost-effective nor necessary.

Sorry Michael Bay-looks like you’re gonna need a new Starscream.

  1. They’re not cutting the F-22 program, just not buying the 500 the Pentagon wants. They’re getting under 200, I think. F-22s are already flying, so Bay can keep his boner.

    Also there’s always the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
