have proven more serious even deadly including this 2014 crash killing three people near Richmond Virginia and this one three years ago in Austin Texas killing all 16 on board but experts say because hot air balloon travel is FAA regulated the industry is generally quite safe pilots for hot-air balloons like every other airman anyone utilizing the National Airspace System they have to be licensed

  1. Feed The Dead Horses 🐎 to the illegal aliens that complain about the Food in detention facilities

  2. Now I don’t believe they should be able to fade into citizenship but we should definitely give them shelter and protection

  3. Beware of the fake news spewed out by dinosaur media corporatist lie machines like the defunct and irrelevant NBC, part of a network of professional and proven deceivers throughout the 20th century. Their time in the 21st century will be short, as smart people, not brainwashed corporate-owned sheeple, move onto better and reliable sources of factual information rather than the fear-mongering cursory infotainment/propaganda spewed out by these dying corporate rags.

  4. What "proof" does Butebaby need?!!! The cop was white, the man he shot dead was black. That's ALL anyone needs to know in 2019. Period. Screw the "proof." White cops HIDE THE TRUTH in these situations. Tons of 'm are KKK members.

  5. This man is brutal all he talk about is war he dont want peace he bully the whole world we never heard about do many desagreement in the world sinse this tump in the w house he is so much a contagus person that he dont know what love and peace is.from he in the w house the whole world in fighting never experence such a dangerus world when our pres oboma was in i .dont know what going to happen if he will be in there for a while

  6. Why is it African Americans get outraged whenever somebody of their race is murdered, but couldn't care less about the fact that, according to F.B.I. statistics, African Americans murder Caucasians, in violent crimes, in significantly greater numbers? Also, why is it African Americans fail to realize that Caucasians are killed by Police Officers in greater numbers as well? Talk about racism…..🙄

  7. Midget corporate shill says:
    "So we have heard those complaints and we've also heard from other community members who have engaged with us as to how that they can be more informed and engaged as to what we're doing…"
    Does this numb nuts really believe that none of us can see through her horribly worded double-speak?

  8. Air pollution is minimal here in the states.. compared to what I experienced in Beijing; of course, who wants any of that!

  9. People who support horseracing do not do it for the love of the horses..they do it for the love of money. No one watching the races ever said… I really love the personality of that slow horse.

  10. Nobody ever said skydiving isn't a dangerous sport. Humans were not meant to fly so everytime we go up in the sky, dive into the deep waters, scale a mountainside or drive a car at 75mph we are taking a risk. I love Europe but how I hate getting on that plane.

  11. Laguna Beach Pageant of the Masters has been doing living paintings since the 1930s. Go see it. It's all volunteer.

  12. EVERYBODY matters, there is only one race, the human race. We are ALL created by God and made in His image. If everyone knew the truth there would be no racism. People are letting the devil (the enemy of our soul) put race against race to destroy us. Also babies lives matter so STOP the slaughter of babies, no more abortions..ever.

  13. Wow that amazing creative intuitive and expressive zany artist. It is so refreshing to see such genious.


  15. Enough is enough on illegal immigrants. Bill Clinton said 'enough is enough', offering amnesty to those already 'in the door', but it has gone on and on, and America cannot absorb unlimited numbers of immigrants. Each of them requires services and housing and food, and streches the nation's resources. It is time to draw the line on this problem with finality.

  16. He knows what happened and they paid to get him back …
    They either government or cartel or both told him not to talk because his life is still very much in danger and now most likely any family members in Mexico…

  17. I feel bad for Lester. He seems like an intelligent, decent man that some how caved to Liberalism.
    I'm sure he struggles with that.

  18. The doctor is on some conniving stuff, he has I’m fool of it written all over him. I hope for the sake of his friends family he did not set him up. I tell people, watch who you call friends.

  19. U.S. Steel should not have been allowed to burn, where was the EPA, shame on them for dropping the ball. We expect U.S. corporations to be corrupt but the EPA at this time in politics was cleaned up and they didn't do anything.

  20. Black America is never satisfied. They raise their children understanding they are a hated race. When in fact, they are the race full of hate.

  21. stop the chemtrail spraying of the clouds and the rain/flooding will stop in Missouri/Midwest. they are seeding the clouds and other garbage.
