Re: House of Representative is like a Plantation...

I just caught a news story on this at the airport. I believe Newt Gingrich was the first one to bring up "the Plantation." I believe he said that "Democrats think they have the right to run the Plantation." Sounds to me like this "Plantation" thing is something people in Washington are frequently using.

Also the building that it hit was an apartment building... not made with super reinforced concrete - amazingly it did not crash completely through the building... There were report that the plane that hit the pentagon was flying at approx 300+ mph... between 0 & 15 ft off the ground... and people were able to recall what airline it was?

The conspiracy theory nuts on those sites need to study a little more physics and engineering.

Sure it pretty much all boils down to F=M*A or Force equals Mass times Acceleration So for question one the the photo implies that upon impact all parts of the plane will continue going forward in a straight line which is what it implies by saying "Hey the hole is bigger than the wings" The problem is wing structures are not designed as a rigid structure but to buckle and bend: For example watch a video of a B-52 taking off or landing and watch the wings flex & bend.

This does not answer the question. The original hole made by the aircraft was approx. 14ft in diameter, that leaves approx. 110ft of wings that are unaccounted for. Are you saying that they were sheared off? (in which case they would have been laying on the ground in the photo) Or are you saying that the wings were somehow brought into the building - through the 14ft hole? (which would defy the laws of physics) I would buy this theory except on thing - the planes that crashed into the WTC...
