    KC-135 Tanker Q&A

    Wrong. It’s so you can get more battery life out of the computer playing the movies by putting the screen to dim.

    What exactly did Harry Reid think would happen when/if the majority changed hands? My guess is that he didn't really care because he was mostly interested in the here/now and his own power. McConnell did the same thing, but to the next logical level. When the majority changes again in November the next Senate Pres will up the ante again. It's the state of our politics right now.

    1) No idea. 2) Mildenhall. Hidden gem out of UPT.

    Really? No, in particular I do not find him trustworthy. He should have lost his clearance entirely if he didn't; with what he did.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    A new service coat is long overdue. The current design sucks and is stupid looking. I'd love to go back to the coat we had in the early 90s or something with heritage. The business suit look is lame.

    What is right with the Air Force

    So a prototype is due in 2 years, which means the prototype will be delivered in 4 years, and 2x over budget. Live program will be delivered in 6-8 years and will pretty much look just like DTS.

    Pilot retention in your neck of the woods?

    Then subtract it out of your total PIC time you logged in your logbook. Easy.

    TRICARE works fine for me and most of the 2 million or so it serves. That doesn't mean that it will work for 325 million.

    Yes, the amazing things you can accomplish when you don’t have to worry about pesky things like elections and individual rights. Japan: ethnically homogenous Germany: ethnically homogenous (more or less) France: French. No thanks. UK: Heck, even based on the wiki article you posted earlier the British doctors told the author he should just learn to live with the shoulder problem he had.

    I won't derail the thread any further, but I'm not convinced that any of those models can work in a country of 325 million. Again, show me an affordable system that provides quality health care for little to no cost to that many citizens and then let's talk. I'm tired of hearing "hey! they do it in Finland!" Too bad America isn't an ethnically homogenous country of 5 million people.

    And the left has no idea how much universal health care will cost for 325 million Americans (and whoever else we have to cover). Show me a country giving free health care to 325 million citizens. Then let's talk.
