    Military helicopters overhead in the middle of LA.

    We live in a residential neighborhood near the center of LA.

    Just now, about 12 military helicopters flew over our heads. The noise was deafening. There is no justification for harassing city dwellers in this way. We are not in the middle of an insurrection. We have no huge crime problem (at least not compared to past problems). This is simply an annoying waste of money.

    We have enough air traffic over our homes, enough police helicopters and freeway traffic. We do not need this noise pollution. Why is our government spending tax money like that when we don't have enough money for health care or education?

    We simply do not need those military aircraft over the City of LA.

    If Obama wants Los Angeles residents to vote for him in November, he needs to get those helicopters and all that military noise out of the city. This is where people live -- peaceful people. We have to contend with too much noise and commotion as it is. I'm not normally a get off my lawn oldster, but this is just too much. President Obama, get your military trash out of my airway.

    I think JD has had a tad too much JD. The "Black Choppers" are out to get em and it's Obama's fault!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Black helicopters and SUVs running around your hood used to be a good way to get DU street cred. But Bambi's in charge now, we look the other way. Or it's training missions, etc, etc.

    Couple-O-points there JD...

    I've been to LA, there is NOTHING peaceful about, in, or around that hell-hole.

    I MIGHT have SOME sympathy if this was an all the time occurence but it's not. The noise lasted what, 30 seconds, and was annoying for 5? Deal with it...asshole!

    The choppers over your ungrateful noggin are the sound of freedom, be proud! You piece of useless trash

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    I just read through that, it's hilarious. People coming out of the woodworks telling JDPriestly that he's being paranoid and should just settle down, and every time they do he just beats the drum a little bit harder.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
