  1. Border crisis

    Firearms accidentally discharge regularly? Do pencils also mispell words? People might accidentally discharge firearms, but it is still caused by a person. "But in a police interrogation, Garcia Zarate admitted to firing the gun, saying he was aiming at a seal." http://wgntv.com/2017/11/30/garcia-zarate-acquitted-of-homicide-in-kate-steinles-death/
  2. Border crisis

    Wasn't sure to put this here or the WTF thread... http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2017/11/30/jury-reaches-verdict-in-steinle-murder-trial/ Unfortunately I wasn't too schocked...it just further shows the decline of our culture/values, especially in places like San Fran and Cali. I've seen more outrage from the left for killing a gorilla in a zoo or lion in Africa...
  3. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    Does T-38 PIT not ensure that you are qualified to teach the T-38 PIT syllabus?
  4. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    If they make it through PIT then what does it matter? Heavy guys go onto to fly T-38s at TPS/with the U-2 and I'm sure some become IPs. If you're a good instructor then you can learn to teach anything you've been qual'd in.
  5. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Yeah...I mean the senior leaders would never allow exceptions to policy based off of someone's religion, right? http://time.com/4625313/us-army-uniform-sikh-turbans-hijab/ Full disclosure: I wouldn't have any problems signing the letter/certificate.
  6. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Nah, that's wouldn't work--see the Second Amendment for an example of how people don't care what is in the Constitution or what the founding fathers said about a certain issues.
  7. That's because the PRFs suspense date to the Wings were before the CSAF/Air Staff policy release.

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
  9. Gun Talk

    If he was considered such a danger to society before the shooting then why wasn't he in prison? Gun laws work as well as drug laws, so if society does not believe person X should have 'access' to Y (i.e. ability to obtain Y, whether legally or illegally) then due process should be used to put person X in prison until they are no longer a threat to society.

    I'm suprised this topic hasn't been mentioned on here lately...
  11. Because they're making you fulfill the commitment you voluntarily signed. Now when they keep you one day longer then it becomes an issue.
  12. Here's the latest and greatest from big blue: About 200 pilots, all voluntary, and most will go to staff jobs with some to IP jobs. I don't see too many volunteers other than those recently hired by the airlines who want to build seniority without the crappy schedule. https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2017/10/23/air-force-pilots-recalled-under-trump-order-will-serve-as-instructors-staff/
  13. I'll even go a step further--more Americans each year are less interested/concerned with the well being of servicemen and women. If you ask the typical Bernie Sanders supporter whether they would trade reduced military retiree benefits for increases to social programs (single payer healthcare, government funded community college, etc) I think it's pretty obvious where their support would most likley be. But to be fair, most GOP politicians only care enough about military benefits to satisfy their base. I don't believe the same retirement benefits given today will be given to me over the next 30-40 years of my life.
  14. Damn--8 in a class? Is that the standard? Also, is is 1 class every 6 weeks or something different?
