    It can cost $11,000 an hour to operate a helicopter for rescue. The government does not ask for reimbursement unless it is a hoax.


    Eric and Charlotte Kaufman — whose daughter, Lyra, became ill while aboard the family's stranded sailboat nearly 1,000 miles off the coast of Mexico — said they were as prepared as any seasoned sailors before they embarked on their voyage. The baby girl was in stable condition aboard a U.S. Navy ship and expected to reach San Diego, Calif., by midweek.

    They went out in their sailboat to sail around the world. Their boat broke and their one year old got sick. The Navy and Coast Guard rescued them. They owe every one of you US taxpayers a huge thanks for rescuing them from their reckless mission.

    What?!! This is outrageous!!!

    When did the US Government all of a sudden go into the business of SAVING people?!!! Fuck that!!

    Would have been much cheaper to fire two cruise missiles at their shit ass boat.

    They're supposed to be arriving at NAVSTA San Diego on Wednesday, I'll be sure to give them the Stink Eye when I see them.

    They put themselves at a huge peril, trying to sail around the world in a 36' sailboat. Do you have no problem with the US paying for their rescue?

    So humans should stop climbing mountains or anything else that may be dangerous?

    You haven't answered my first question. Do you think the US should foot the bill for the rescue? You know, personal responsibility and all that is out the window?

    No, keep on doing it. But when it goes wrong, don't pull out your SAT phone expecting rescue.

    Just die.

    I have no problem with it...fuck we pay millions to fly Lady Oblama around the globe with her 78 person posse...I could go on and on. There are certain benefits to being a US citizen. Rescue services are one of them

    I don't want to get all political but I think you are crazy. People should be responsible for their own misdeeds. The sea and a mountain doesn't relieve them of that responsibility.
