  1. Taxes are based on income and transactions, not net worth. Unless you are wealthy and live in California.
  2. He said he’d pay from the general fund, not forgive. That said, I don’t think he has the discretionary authority to do that without an appropriation. He might be able to donate that amount from his personal funds though...
  3. No offense, but that sounds like an awful plan. There are very few ways to outmaneuver the AF bureaucracy. I don’t think this is one of them.
  4. Deny. Deflect. Make counter accusations. SOP for politicians is point blame for their own choices, especially when caught.
  5. We had a couple of commuters that lived in Lubbock when I was at Cannon. They hated life, but for different reasons than most people.
  6. No more brown names/rank against brown background.
  7. Interesting thread. To the OP, please consider some advice. You have a lot of passion, and decent objective stats. If your posts here had been an interview, I would put you as a maybe. Your core claim of purpose has a few flaws. “I’m hugely passionate about attempting to become a fighter pilot, not for the “cool” factor but because I truly feel an intense passion for the mission, especially CAS.” Specifically, combined with your major concern “I know for a fact I wouldn’t want to fly drones.” These statements together mean you’re either ignorant (have not done your research) or dishonest (it really is for the cool factor). Perhaps neither of these are true, but that’s the way it comes across to this old salt. I’d recommend analyzing what your priorities really are, and go after them without any shame or false humility. Good luck.
  8. As said above, odds are RBG will retire her gavel in the next 4 years, perhaps others too. My views are more aligned with Kavanaugh/Gorsuch than with so many appointments before them. I prefer legislation that originates in the legislature, not the courtroom. I appreciate that Kavanaugh and Gorsuch anger both sides by ruling according to the law instead of predictably aligning with the party that had them appointed. As much as the media likes to point out Trump’s flaws, those two appointments were outstanding.
  9. https://www.dm.af.mil/Media/Article-View/Article/2273690/ecg-airman-receives-purple-heart/
  10. Performance is measured through OCO funding.
  11. This has quickly become one of the most useful threads in this forum. So much wisdom here. Should be required reading for new studs. Except the AOB/VSI thing.
  12. Look outside. Listen to the engine. Keep the ball in the middle until you can feel yaw in the seat. Trim until you can control with minute inputs. Be deliberate but smooth. Learn all the intellectual stuff the IPs say. Most of all, fly the airplane first. You'll be fine.
  13. The rml490 is a great rack. If you want to mark the holes on the uprights, those little peel and stick numbers from hobby lobby work really well without being permanent. I have the rml flat foot, and I’ve had those on it for a little over a year now. There’s so much you can do with your setup.
