  1. Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    This. The trolling was strong with that one...
  2. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    You can't have one without the other--progressives own the overly done PC/microaggression bullshit. You don't have to like it, but don't be so naive about it.
  3. According to the link, it doesn't raise the bonus above $35K, unless I read it incorrectly?
  4. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Given the PC culture our country has become over the last 10-20 years, are we really that surprised?
  5. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Apparenttly these comments qualifiy as derogatoary, unprofessional, and is a 'microaggression'. And we're surprised at the professionalism of young enlisted and Lts... https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2018/02/16/air-force-academy-first-sergeant-admonished-for-microaggression-email/ The first sergeant concluded his email by reminding them about former NBA superstar Michael Jordan’s habit of appearing at press conferences in a suit and tie, even without a dress code requiring it. "He was never seen with a gaudy chain around his neck, his pants below his waistline, or with a backwards baseball hat on during public appearances,” Parish said.
  6. The Next President is...

    ^^What a joke! You don't care about Russia--you're just a progressive who doesn't like Trump (which is fine, I'm not a big fan of him personally either). But I'm not using Russia an excuse to further support a progressive agenda of being against oil lol.
  7. The Next President is...

    ^^This. Anyone who thinks the Dems or GOP cares about Liberty is a joke. As I have said, politicians will be politicians and it's disappointing how many Americans would rather a big government decide what to do with their wealth and how they should live their lives. Pick which state you want t to live in/who you want as your neighbors because when it all comes crumbling down it will be all you have.
  8. Wait--what?? Where are you getting these numbers? Show me the retirement math for a 20-yr Major vs a 20-yr Lt Col living until 85...
  9. The Next President is...

    ^^I'm still waiting to find out what happened with Operation Fast and Furious...but Obama said no when he was president :( Like I said, all presidents are politicians and don't truly care about Liberty--they care about their base and ideology.
  10. The Next President is...

    Yes. Just like progressives and libertarians don't want illegal aliens deported (just for different reasons). The sanctions vs no sanctions relate to the same reason Obama wanted to open an embassy back in Cuba. Look, if you don't like Trump, then don't like Trump and don't vote for him in 2020. I just find it funny that those that worshiped Obama as the greatest president ever (they have pictures of him and his family on their FB pages) somehow honestly think Trump is worst person to have ever walked the Earth. I'll support Trump's decisions when he does something I like and vice versa, same as I did with Obama. Unfortunately with Obama, there was little to support--at the very least I thought he would have scaled back the NSA, reduced the drug laws, and ended the war in Afghanistan, neither of which happened.
  11. The Next President is...

    The same reason you and I support it when gun control laws aren't enforced, as well as drug laws.
  12. The Next President is...

    Here's what it comes down to and this will never change: Progressives, like yourself, are still very upset that Trump won in November 2016....especially after Trump was/is on record saying stupid/disrespectful shit, and coupled with nearly every poll/analysis saying Hillary had this election in the bag. I get it--you and half the country don't like it, and the Gorsuch confirmation was additional salt in the wounds. Also, traditional Republicans can't stand Trump either because he does not follow traditional Republican norms, hence why guys like McCain and Lindsey Graham aren't fans and are very reluctant to work with him on non-traditional legislation. Conservatives (largest single group of the Republican base) don't like Trump for who he is/how he acts, but is fairly happy with what he has done over the first year (Gorsuch, tax cuts, saying pro-Israel stuff, etc). This all leads to progessives scratching their heads even more as to how he won, how is he getting some things done, and how is he doesn't fold to their attacks on him. So what do they do, they scream Russia and call him a racist. Yet, if the economy is still humming along in 2020 (who knows if it will be, I have my doubts) then Trump will get re-elected, especially if the Dems go further left (Warren, Bernie, or Harris type candidate). So in the meantime, progressives will stay the course on the Russia and racist talking points and truley hope something breaks in their favor. Will it? Possibly, but I doubt it. This is coming from a person who would have loved to see Rand Paul received the nomination, and would have been ok with Cruz as a second option. Since there wasn't either, I supported Gary Johnson one again. That being said, I appreciate Trump reducing more regulations (vs a net add), and adding guys like Gorsuch to the Supreme Court vs a guy like Garland. I also come out ahead on the tax cuts, but will be annoyed (but not suprised) that they're not reducing overall federal spending which takes us further down the hole. As for his crude/stupid comments, that doesn't affect my pocketbook when the economy is doing well, so I just continue to dislike him as a person and like it when he does stuff of which I approve. But for you progresives screaming Russia, this short conversation between Obama and Medvedev shows politicians will do whatever they want, whenever they want if it helps them/they can get away with it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keXx0zxTarE

    Vertigo--since when are you in favor of sanctions?
  14. Raise Taxes, Fire up the Draft.

    Haha--you never volunteered to fly airplanes. And if you thought you did, you might want to look at your oath/what you signed a little closer... And since when do volunteer and slavery go together?
  15. Raise Taxes, Fire up the Draft.

    I'm pretty sure the Rights/benefits I have from being a citizen in this country is no more/no less than that of an American citizen who works at Starbucks, so yes, our opinion on the worth of this country and what we're willing to do/not do is 100% the same...
