now here is a fun topic for the conspiracy folks:
What are the odds that Wellstone was murdered?
Logic being that he was on his way to losing the race against Coleman, which would have tipped the balance to repubs in a critical struggle for senate control. But as a dead man, maybe he could pull out the election via sympathy vote- thus saving the Dem majority. Carnahan vs Ashcroft rehash.
Possible? Or completely wacko?
In the wacko world we live in, anything is possible......maybe max401 can investigate the situation a little further....
Shit, I wouldn't be surprised if Max's ultra-conservative ass was behind it.
Except for the fairly obvious point that "ultra-conservatives" would have no motive for getting a dead democrat elected...
p.s. who is Max and why is he getting ripped on out of the blue?
And what are you, an ultra-liberal? Leave max401 out of this; he didn't come in here and give you grief.
I thought you were taking a break from posting and trading? A lot of people here wish you would
No wonder you can't trade. Take your aluminum foil hat off.
During icing conditions the pitot tube, which is the airspeed sensor, can plug up with ice (if the pilot forgets to turn on the pitot heat), and cause the airspeed indicator to read low (when they are really going 150 knots the airspeed indicator might read 60 knots). The pilot, who is already worried about not having enough horsepower to lift all the ice that he expects is building up on his airplane, will look at the airspeed indicator and assume, because of the low indicated airspeed (60 knots) that he is about to enter a stall and correct by putting the nose down to build speed. As the indicated airspeed decreased he had probably already applied full power but as the airspeed dropped his only other option was to push the nose down. Also, if he was in snow or clouds and couldn't see the horizon he may not have realized he was in a steep dive. I'll bet that's what happened.
I think it was the same republican dirty tricks people who ruined ross perot's daughter's wedding.
Hehe, was already posted on the conspiracy thread:
...Loss of senator Wellstone
may assure the win of a republican congress according to media so far.
Strong opponent of war against Iraq back in 1991, and even stronger now. He even stated that his resolve against Bush's policies will cost him his own election. Ironically he was actually ahead in the polls recently.
Market had what some called "the death of a senator rally" today just after the news came out.
Interesting that another democrat senator, is lost in plane crash before elections.
Democrat senator Mel Carnahan plane crashed on Oct 16th 1985. He was running against Aschroft back then....
Wasn't that around the time we were selling all them chems and bio weapons to Iraq so they can fight Iran, and also the Iran contra scandal brewing or maybe later?
