  1. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    This is my favorite video of all time
  2. The Next President is...

    Is my sarcasm detector inop?
  3. The Next President is...

    This is the same shit that brought us the Black lives matter nothing burger. Try to tell a liberal that blacks in America are committing a hugely disproportionate amount of violent crime, a completely irrefutable fact, and they call you a racist. But in the same breath they scream that we "have to" have a conversation about racist policing in America. Now we "have to" have a conversation about immigration, but call a country a shithole, when that country is by any reasonable analysis exactly that, boom, out comes the racist card. If you dingleberries keep using language restriction and faux outrage to shame people into your way of thinking, Donald is going to tap dance right into another term. Maybe when someone tells you they aren't racist, turn off your inner Maddow and try to figure out what other reasons they have for disagreeing with you.
  4. The Next President is...

    Which they would be justified in doing. I'm no fan of the GTC, but pilots whining about not getting credit card points from their government funded trips certainly doesn't help support other, actually relevant complaints.
  5. Promotion and PRF Information

    Not really. Law enforcement in America is still working. We are not on track for a massive degradation in police operations. Can the same be said for the Air Force? Just because your commander is a "good dude" who "gets it" doesn't mean he or she is qualified to run a massive organization. I get what you're saying, but the evidence is not on the pilots' side. Also, your analogy would be more accurate if you were saying the mayor of the city should be a cop, which in most cases is not true, or necessary for a city to have an effective police force.
  6. Promotion and PRF Information

    Let's face it, the pilots can't hack it
  7. Promotion and PRF Information

    Major (select) Duck, field grade is an honor and a responsibility. Are you ready?
  8. The new airline thread

    Thanks for the info, it's good to have perspective shared
  9. The new airline thread

    One counter point that I think might make it worth the gamble is the retirements for AA. If, big if, the union can get it together in the next 10 years, the opportunity for seniority movement crushes the other carriers. I will say, their hiring process was the friendliest experience I've ever had.
  10. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    STOP! If we say it two more times he will be summoned...
  11. The new airline thread

    Go on...
  12. KC-46A Info

    When I spoke with them in 2015, the Italian booms were not fond of the system
  13. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Yeah, but 89 of those days were spent arguing about the difference between an aileron roll and a barrel roll.
  14. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Being a commander is not a requirement. If you're not interested in performing all of the usual duties for all of your subordinates who are serving in lawful capacities, then just don't be a commander. It would be pandemonium amongst the ranks if the first gay commander only signed certs for gay spouses, and they would be rightly upset.
  15. 11-217: should it stay or go?

    Dear God yes.
