    UPT Changes

    Can't speak for the other bases, but Columbus just announced that classes will be split in half and will now start every 2 weeks as opposed to every 3 weeks. Also, instead of having the class remain together throughout training, the class will be split up into groups of about 2 and put into flights. The intent is to allow fast/slow swimmers to have someone on their skill level if needed (formation checks were used as an example), instead of making fast swimmers wait or washing out those that are behind. The tenets are the same: Control what you can control, work your ass off, and find time for fun/family.

    You're talking about very different time periods with respect to how quickly information can be gathered. I can only dream of a world where Twitter was around during Bill Clinton's Presidency...

    I thought SERE was awarded to SEALS for good behavior.
  6. I may... I may not... Who wants to know?
  7. Yeah, seems like a drug deal... And as you pointed out, sometimes drug deals go bad.
  8. You can have all your paperwork sent to NGB without the FC1, but (to my knowledge) NGB approval is not possible without successfully passing the FC1. So no OTS dates until NGB approval, and no NGB approval until FC1 stamped. Like AlphaPapa said, talk to student flight (since that's what you will fall under) when you go to swear in. They will work it up the chain of command and get approval to attend/miss drill, and who you should report to.

    Iran Lied . . . No One Is Surprised

    Apparently so does Trump: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/08/world/middleeast/trump-iran-nuclear-deal.html Amazing how NYT says the Iran Deal was "the signature foreign policy achievement of his predecessor, Barack Obama"... Obama's signature foreign policy achievement was a "deal" that Iran never signed... speaks volumes

    Upcoming Boards

    People might not be comfortable sharing their scores. As a rule of thumb, 90's across the board are good point to shoot for. If you're below that, it doesn't mean you shouldn't apply. If you have a higher scores than everyone rushing, it doesn't guarantee you an interview.

    I thought the point of the strikes was to destroy the manufacturing facilities while minimizing human casualties... I'd call that mission accomplished. The Cold War is over. The 1980s called... they want their foreign policy back. (couldn't resist) Nobody can have a rational debate with you if you honestly believe that Trump being (1) compromised and (2) a clear and present threat to the nation who needs to be removed "isn't a partisan matter."

    Bad comparison... Dealing drugs, murder, and sexual assault are all crimes. Being the Republican candidate for President is not. Strzok wasn't removed because of his political opinions or the mighty Fox propaganda machine (talk about hypocrisy), he was removed because of his personal opinion of Trump as an individual. I think a lot of Bernie's political ideals are crap, but I don't necessarily think he's a bad person... I work around people who I don't agree with politically, but still get along very well with, and I have a positive personal view of them. I can separate my distaste for someone's views from my distaste for a person... Something people on both sides have trouble with. Strzok said some pretty nasty things about Trump and his family, things I would never say about Bernie or other people I know, despite thinking they have stupid political views. The presumption of innocence isn't meant to protect a person who has kiddie porn, it's meant to protect a person who doesn't have kiddie porn from having their rights violated. But fair enough, who are the judge and jury? Who are the accusers? What is the accusation/crime? And what are the consequences of intentional false accusation? If a guy's ex-wife accuses him of having child porn in an attempt to get full custody of their kids (knowing that he doesn't have child porn anywhere), and they search his residence and find an unpaid parking ticket, can't the wife be charged with making false accusations?

    Just seemed weird that you'd be bragging about being out to a dude who did/does cool shit in the military, simply because he had the audacity to give a craniums up on ways to avoid getting in trouble just in case it applied to you. I vehemently disagree with nsplayr on a bunch of political shit, but I respect his opinion and take his advice on other stuff when its offered... Anyways, back to the text messages from left-leaning sources... Anti-Trump (CNN): https://www.cnn.com/2017/12/12/politics/peter-strzok-texts-released/index.html Not as many, but it's CNN so... Pro-Obamas: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/02/the-fbis-principal-loyalty-is-to-the-bureau-itself/552686/

    You're really not a huge fan of any even-numbered amendment... 0/3 so far Alright I had the displeasure of reading that whole thing. I honestly don't know enough about Nunes to care one way or the other... So Nunes is upset that the Steele dossier was used in the FISA application because Steele is biased. The FISA courts knew Steele was biased, but there was no mention of his connection with Clinton/DNC (same thing, right?). They also knew about Carter Page's pro-Putin "tendencies" so the courts used the Steele dossier, which they "took with a grain of salt" to unmask Carter Page. Carter Page has yet to be accused of or charged with a crime. So Nunes questions the Steele dossier's relevance to the FISA application and the author makes the claim that it wasn't relevant but it was used anyways, so Nunes is an asshole? I'm seeing circular logic...

    Strzok compromised: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/12/texts-between-ex-mueller-team-members-emerge-calling-trump-loathsome-human-idiot.html NOTE: I honestly tried to find a left-leaning site with the story, but they all seem to want to downplay every single negative text about Trump... Obviously Fox is trying to play into the conspiracy theorists, but you're free to interpret the texts as you wish. Bottom line: a bunch of negative texts about Trump and his family (and the idiot American voting public for voting for him), and a lot of positive texts about the Obamas. Comey's leak: https://www.factcheck.org/2017/07/trumps-unfounded-leak-claim/ 1. Comey acknowledged that he had “asked a friend of mine [later identified as Columbia University professor Daniel C. Richman] to share the content of the memo with a reporter.” Comey testified that after the president had tweeted that Comey had better hope there were no “tapes” of their conversation, Comey gave the memo to the Columbia Law School professor to provide to the media so that it “might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.” 2. “It was a classified briefing and so I wrote that on a classified device,” Comey said in response to a question on whether all the memos were unclassified. “The one I started typing … in the car — that was a classified laptop that I started working on.”But Comey said the memo he shared with a friend was unclassified. In his written testimony, Comey says of the Feb. 14 memo: “I immediately prepared an unclassified memo of the conversation about Flynn and discussed the matter with FBI senior leadership.” “So you didn’t consider your memo or your sense of that conversation to be a government document?” Sen. Roy Blunt asked in the June 8 Senate hearing. “You considered it to be, somehow, your own personal document that you could share with the media as you wanted to through a friend?” “Correct,” Comey said. “I understood this to be my recollection recorded of my conversation with the president. As a private citizen, I felt free to share that. I thought it important to get it out.”The Hill noted that when the memos — which Comey said he had turned over to Special Counsel Robert Mueller — were recently shown to Congress “the FBI claimed all were, in fact, deemed to be government documents.” It seems as if Comey is trying to make the case that he decides which info is unclassified and which info isn't (don't know the answer to this one)... and that meeting with the President when he was the FBI director was a meeting he had as a "private citizen", and therefore his notes are his property and not government documents (which the FBI seems to disagree with). "A fucking moron"... bit of a stretch for a guy that beat out "the most qualified Presidential candidate in history"... Abrasive on twitter? Absolutely. A fucking moron? Highly doubtful. But what do I know, I'm a fucking deplorable

    I'm not a lawyer or in any job that deals with law enforcement... But let's say I get pulled over for speeding, then the officer gets a warrant to search my car based on the initial crime of speeding. He finds 10 kilos of coke hidden under the back seat (I'm a smart drug dealer, don't insult me by assuming I'd leave drugs in plain view of the officer), but later in court it's discovered that I was not actually speeding and the officer pulled me over because he felt like it and happened to get lucky with the coke bust... Weren't my 4th amendment rights violated? If I'm being investigated for murder, and lie to the investigators about who I met with on the day the crime was committed, but it turns out I didn't commit murder and the person who said that I was the one who did was mistaken and they found the actual killer... Would I still be charged with misleading investigators? (again, honest question) I never made an argument for letting the charge of lying slide... Just stated that I'm underwhelmed with the charges stemming from such a high profile investigation. Finally, my point is that it seems like there is a big push to put the investigation before the crime and without probable cause. The assumption of guilt is coming before the investigation. My understanding of the law of the US is that we have a presumption of innocence...

    Weak as in pointless. I don't think a special counsel is needed to go after internet trolls. Personally, I think if Bill Clinton was President today and the Lewinsky story broke, people wouldn't really care nearly as much as they did back then. And I never said lying to the FBI shouldn't be punished, just implied that the actual lies aren't as groundbreaking as I would expect from a special counsel investigation. In your honest opinion, is the special counsel making great strides towards punishing those involved in "Russian meddling" in our election? And do you believe that the Trump campaign actively aided the Russians in said meddling?
