  1. This big time ^^.... I've been called the same from both sides, and I am way right of most so called conservatives today. The current POTUS is a DA in so many ways but many things he has accomplished are worth affirming. And while he is self serving, much like most of the past presidents have been, I think he really does love our country and I'm not sure I can say that about the immediate past guy.
  2. I'm good with emotion, but his whole speech was about getting rid of name calling and division and led off with jokes about POTUS. He stooped and got down in the mud, which is good in war and barroom brawls, but not before a speech about bipartisanship and working together. Just my opinion.
  3. Some initial cheap shots (even if deserved) that kind of diminished an otherwise excellent speech.
  4. It is very possible to be a convicted moron though. Having conviction and interest don't necessarily mean you know shit about the topic. I'm all for attacking ideas but think it is inappropriate to attack/denigrate the messenger regardless of age or mental acuity. Though in this case, her parents threw her to the wolves. As to the message ... Of course our climate is changing, as it has since the planet was formed. But the fear mongering and claims that humans are the main cause of it, is ludicrous and has no actual scientific (observable, quantifiable, and repeatable) evidence for support. The people who benefit from declaring that man is primarily responsible for climate change include everyone funded to study it, the Al Gore types who sell carbon offsets, the sellers of "sustainable energy" that takes more energy to produce than it offsets (e.g. windmills), etc. I'm all for us being more socially responsible and better stewards of our planet but I don't advocate using fear to manipulate and exploit. Lets continue to study and develop more efficient technologies that will reduce pollution. And, lets start with cleaning our oceans, which to me are the true tangible evidence of mans disregard for our planet. The Pacific's garbage patch is bigger than Texas!
  5. I don't know this commander so just my thoughts about surveys in general. I cringed a little at the survey. While there were definitely some critical comments there were also plenty of positive comments and ratings. I'm a university professor and we receive student ratings/surveys every semester and this sort of reminded me of one of those. Each semester there is the one student who thinks I was an ass for failing them and I get the 1 star across the board rating and associated snarky comments, and then there is the one student, who on paper anyway, claims I walked on water and was the best ever. I'd hate for my job to rest on the results of an anonymous survey. So, I'd hope the fire/relieve of command decision was based on more than just a survey with people whining about being made to do their job and not feeling supported. I get the human relationship aspect of command but some of the comments sounded like people needing s hug.
  6. I'm hoping Jeff is still the great guy he was in UPT even as a 4 star. He was a classmate in UPT and the last time I spoke to him he was still grounded, but of course I'm not one of his troops. I noticed the one guy calls him Harrigan instead of his actual name. https://video.foxnews.com/v/6086258090001/#sp=show-clips
  7. Waving the BS flag on this one, no F-105, F-4, or P-38 and a 747 and DC-3 ahead of the F-15 and Buff. Obviously some cool old birds on the list, but Brabus nailed it, Pop Sci has no clue what bad ass means.
  8. It is hollywood so should be an easy write. Trump finally admits that he is a KGB operative planted in his family when he was a baby and recently activated to rule the USA. There is obviously much turmoil and Hillary agrees (of course for the good of the nation only) to ascend to be President in an emergency session of Congress that throws out the constitutional chain of command and line of succession bypassing everyone. Meanwhile Russia has been plotting with Cuba and Venezuela to finally end capitalism and the evil of free will and individual freedoms in general. Bernie, AOC, Booker, and a few others align with Venezuela which results in the entire Northeast and West coast voting (they again fell for the ... you can keep your freedoms if you want them) to join the new Socialist World Government. Most Naval forces in CA evacuated but because of a minor coup by high ranking military leaders in the West some forces remain behind with questionable allegiance to either side of the now split USA.
  9. The tweet had one of, if not, the fastest G onsets of any aircraft in our inventory back then. Thankfully it was a slow pig, so difficult to break it in half, but you could over G it pretty quickly.
  10. Escalating quickly with the UK now. I still can't get inside the heads of foreign leaders who want to piss of the big guys like this. They're like chihuahuas around Labs and any other larger breed.

    Brick, There are some things that even a father and husband should just say NO to. I have to give you an Unsat for situational awareness, I hate to, but you should have seen this coming (sts). 😒

    The service organizations are quite experienced at filing VA claims. Reach out to the DAV, PVA, or AmVets. The PVA usually does spinal cord injured vets but I know people who they have represented who weren't paralyzed. Their service officers are usually excellent.

    Not a new movie but I didn't see it posted here. I recently watched this movie and found it a bit disturbing (made me examine my heart/take stock and see some of my selfishness in decisions I make). It is interesting to see him struggle with his selfish desire to climb without safety equipment against the risk to his loved ones of dying in pursuit of his goal. A few times in the movie even the camera men had to look away in fear of watching him plunge to his death.
