    The new airline thread

    Sitting wide body reserve, I went for 105 days without flying at 76 hours paid per month although I normally averaged 1 trip per month. This month, I'm working 12 days (4 trips) for 91 hours. Just depends on what you want to do.

    Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    Whatever tax structure is used such flat tax, progressive tax, or VAT combined with ever rate the idiots in Congress decide upon with up to and including a 70% rate recently mentioned, that tax method and rate is completely irrelevant if the idiots in Congress keep spending more money that the country takes in.

    https://townhall.com/columnists/wayneallynroot/2019/01/20/harry-reid-exposes-greatest-liberal-scam-of-alltime-n2539256 Harry Reid Exposes Greatest Liberal Scam of All-Time Wayne Allyn Root 5-6 minutes What's in the news day and night? The wall. It's all anyone talks about or thinks about or debates. Have you heard? The U.S. government is partially shut down over the wall. But it's all a massive liberal scam. A Ponzi scheme. Pure fraud. Bernie Madoff couldn't come up with a better scam. Because the same liberal politicians and donors who scream about the "racism" and "immorality" and "ineffectiveness" of a wall all live behind walls. President Trump needs to buy TV infomercial time and run a 30-minute TV show in a Ross Perot fashion -- featuring aerial views of the mansions and estates of liberals, protected by walls, gates, and armed guards. You know, the exact same protections they don't want you and me or our children to have. Exhibit A is Harry Reid, the Democratic former Senate Majority Leader from my home state of Nevada. Please ignore the advertising slogan "What happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas." It's not true. Las Vegas is the crossroads of America. What happens here is happening everywhere. And I've uncovered the biggest liberal scam in America -- going on right here in Las Vegas. It revolves around my home community in Henderson. I live in the exclusive Anthem Country Club. There are about 1,500 beautiful homes behind the gates of Anthem. Together, these homes are worth around $1 billion -- in just one country club in one Las Vegas suburb. What's the amazing appeal of Anthem Country Club? It's got a big beautiful wall around it. And thick iron gates in front are protected by armed guards. The result? There is virtually no crime inside walled, gated, armed Anthem. Life is good behind the gates of Anthem. In the rest of Las Vegas ... not so much. In the rest of Vegas ... lots of crime, gang bangers, drugs, car-jackings, and home invasion robberies. Proving walls and gates and lots of armed guards are a good thing if you want your family to be safe. But wait. My Anthem community recently added yet another feature to keep our residents safe. Every vehicle entering our gates must show a government-issued photo ID or they will be denied entry. Guess who's my neighbor, just steps away from my home? Former Sen. Harry Reid. The one and only. He could have chosen anywhere in Nevada or America to retire. But he didn't. He chose the protection of fortress Anthem for his family. There are many lessons we can learn from studying Anthem Country Club. Lesson No. 1: If you want your family and children to be safe, BUILD A WALL -- preferably a wall that is also surrounded by armed guards. The Vatican understands this lesson. Every celebrity in Hollywood understands. All the wealthy politicians in Washington, D.C., understand. All the big-shot media executives understand. Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and George Soros all understand. Barbara Streisand, George Clooney, Sean Penn, and Madonna all understand. They are protected by big walls, sturdy gates, and armed guards. Lesson No. 2: Liberal Democrats are hypocrites. All the liberal bigmouths who denigrate the wall live behind walls and gates. None is a better example than Reid, former chief water carrier and bottle washer of President Barack Obama. Reid spent his entire Senate career fighting viciously against a wall. Reid argued walls were terrible and unnecessary things. So, why did Harry choose Anthem? Because he loves his family. That's why we all want a wall at America's southern border. To protect our country and our children from bad people, drugs, disease, and violent crime. Welcome to the neighborhood, Harry. Can I bring a cake by? Lesson No. 3: Liberals lie about everything. Liberals don't just use walls to separate themselves from the very poor and illegal alien voters they count on to elect them. They use limos and private jets and send their children to lily-white private schools where they'll never be around gangbangers or illegal aliens or Muslim refugees or disease. Lesson No. 4: Guns must not be as bad as liberals claim. Because liberals may argue against gun ownership, but at the same time, they have armed guards protect them. Lesson No. 5: The argument against voter identification is a total scam. How do all those gardeners, maids and pool cleaners drive through the gates of Anthem every day? The answer: They all already have a government-issued photo ID. So I guess it's a lie when liberal politicians claim that poor people and minorities don't have a photo ID or that it's too difficult for them to get or that it's "racist" to ask them for it. Voter ID is an issue because liberals want election fraud. They can't win without it. They want illegals to be able to vote by the millions for Democrats. Folks, we're being scammed. But not just any scam. This is the greatest scam of all time. Anthem, my beautiful, safe community, is the proof. What happens here in the suburbs of Vegas, is happening everywhere. My advice? BUILD THE WALL.

    If walls don't work, how comes is it that so many liberals live in gated communities or in homes with large fences and walls?

    The new airline thread

    Flea, at AA, vacation time increases the longer you are with the airline and tops out at 31 days. The vacation bidding system sucks but allegedly is going to change. You also manipulate the system with PVD (Personal Vacation Days) and trip drops to build time off. Lots of ways to skin the cat to build a window to travel. As far as travel goes, if you can tolerate dealing with the unknowns and frustrations of flying standby, you can easily go places. Over the last year, the wife and I have gone to Ireland and Spain for 5 day visits. For longer layovers, the wife has flown standby with me to Paris, Santiago, and Hawaii. Lots of options on places to go but passenger loads can sometimes be unpredictable.

    Happy 2019! May your exit dreams come true!

    I've just completed my 7th transition course. Started academics Nov 12th and completed sim training on Dec 7th. There is also some training done via iPad before I started the academics. Nothing terribly difficult.

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    If Wikipedia can be believed, 328 girls have been named Abcde between 1990 and 2014. She can change her name but her parent(s) is/are stupid and you can't fix stupid.
  10. Ah yes, the convertible mod. Perfect for those VFR sunny days whilst out sending jihadists VFR direct to Allah. Just make everything is strapped down before releasing the brakes.

    Justice Ginsberg is back in the hospital. Democrats are powering up the defibrillator, the machine that goes "bing" and whatever else they think they might need to keep her from flat lining. If she kicks the bucket, can the Democrats kick up the toddler tantrum a notch or are they out of notches?

    Hurricane Michael

    Put them on a stick or train type round table out in the open and let them weathervane. Might need a screen for airborne debris. Not perfect but might minimize damage.

    Imagine the wailing that is going to occur when Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg is replaced. I'm sure Democrats have a "Weekend at Buzzy's" type plan to maintain her seat as long as possible.
