Tighten Your Nuts

It could save your life.

Washington (CNN)An Air Force reconnaissance airplane caught fire in April, endangering the lives of 27 airmen aboard the plane — all because a retaining nut connecting oxygen tubing was not tightened properly, accident investigators have determined. The report blamed a private defense contracting company for the accident.

“Failure by L-3 Communications depot maintenance personnel to tighten a retaining nut connecting a metal oxygen tube to a junction fitting above the galley properly caused an oxygen leak. This leak created a highly flammable oxygen-rich environment that ignited,” U.S. Air Force investigators wrote in report published August 3.

    Speaking of tightening your nuts… How about Donald Trump? Why isn’t he getting any attention on “Boots and Sabers”. I think he’s just what Republican conservatives need in there party… He’s white, old and rich. He has brought out the true base of the Republican Party… Fools. He’s pro Hillary, pro choice, pro Obama care, pro taxes and a load mouth blowhard. People wonder why I have trouble supporting the party. Tighten your nuts!
