First George Bush's FEMA screwed New Orleans, then George Bush's U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission showed they had no control over Chinese toy safety - we have George Bush's Federal Highways crumbling and bridges falling into rivers, George Bush's Justice Department is turned into a partisan office, George Bush's FDA can't take their heads out of their *sses long enough to figure out where Salmonella is coming from, and now we have George Bush's FAA screwing with Air Traffic Safety:
Travelers are facing mass flight delays today as the result of a computer problem at the Federal Aviation Administration.
The Federal Aviation Administration said that one of its two systems that process flight plans is down on Tuesday, Aug. 26. All flight plans are now being handled out of Salt Lake City.
The FAA has two systems that process flight plans - one located in Atlanta and the other one in Salt Lake City. But the Atlanta system went down at 1:30pm today, and all flight plans are now being handled out of Salt Lake City.
As a result, delays could pile up at airports across the country. Delays up to 90 minutes are already surfacing at several airports.
"This was a failure mode we have not seen before," said FAA chief operating officer Hank Krakowski on Tuesday afternoon.
Well, let's not build in measures to deal with unforeseen problems -- no, no - that's not the Republican way. It has to break first.
Our nation won't survive another four years of this Republican mismanagement.
