A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a
man in a boat below. She shouted to him,

“Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I
don’t know where I am.”

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied,
“You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of
2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude
and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican.

“I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is
technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and
I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

The man smiled and responded, “You must be an Obama-Democrat.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

“Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are — or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you
were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”

WHAT PILOTS SEE WHEN LANDING AT OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE

A farmer does this with his tractor. He uses GPS to get the letters readable.
He has done this every fall for several years now.
Here’s the view from the flight pattern into OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE
Bellevue, NE., just south of Omaha .
This is what our servicemen see when landing at Offutt AFB.
Hat tip to the Bellevue farmer who made it happen!
 
Okay e-mail buddies, let’s keep this going until everyone has seen it
Without the news media’s help.
This should have made national news.
Imagine how this must feel to all those servicemen
Seeing it for the first time.
It tells them that we do care and that we do support them.
Let’s make it a BIG THANK YOU by sending it around the world.
