  1. I thought the government was offering the subsidies back when the Nissan Leaf was the most advanced EV...with a range of like 80 miles. As far as I know, the tax credits for EVs started with the Energy Improvement and Extension Act, signed by Bush in 2008, the same year Tesla released the Roadster (a car that had less that 2500 built). So this was well before the Model S hit the road. And I guarantee that the people buying the $100k Roadster didn't give a shit about the tax credit. It seems like it was a pretty fair subsidy. It's no one's fault besides other car companies that Tesla seems to
  2. To be fair, he probably charmed her when she went to privately meet with him on her own. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  3. Agreed. She's trying to position herself for a fox news gig. She went from actively working against gay marriage, to speaking for Bernie Sanders at the DNC, to suddenly spending every outlet she gets to talk about her newly found conservative positions and rail against Democrats. Add to this her being outright strangely defensive of Assad and I can't figure her out. Plus there is the whole growing up in the cult thing (an offshoot of Hare Krishna called the Science of Identity Foundation) and being married to a guy who's still heavily involved.

  4. Doesn't Trump still have the POTUS Twitter account? It's not twitters fault that he always insisted on using his personal account and still isn't using that one. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  5. I wouldn't call Fox a small fish at all. And they're only losing viewership because news networks that make Fox look centrist are becoming more popular. I didn't see 2020 numbers in my quick search, but in 2019 Fox averaged 2.5 million viewers. MSNBC and CNN (the only other two news channels in the top 40 listed) combined to total 2.8 million viewers. I'll say, this was a quick search, but it shows that Fox has a larger presence than I think a lot of people realize. https://www.google.com/amp/s/deadline.com/2019/12/cable-ratings-2019-list-fox-news-total-viewers-espn-18-49-demo-1202817561/am
  6. So now it's Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and...Guardians. Yeah, I get there's history from the space command, but come on. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  7. None, you only need to pass B to be good to go. The AF lowered the standard a while ago. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

    To be fair Abu Dhabi is always extremely boring. Something like the last 6 or 7 years, the guy on pole won the race. It's not much different for second and third either. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

    What a race. Absolutely devastated for Russell, he did everything possible to win that and had every possible bit of bad luck. Pitted and was given Bottas' tires, so he had to pit again after spending a lap behind the safety car. Fights back through and is quickly gaining on P1 and then has a puncture. I can't imagine his frustration and disappointment. He deserves a seat at a top team. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

    Pretty good showing from Russell after such a small amount of time in the car. He's had a great attitude, acting like a proper Mercedes driver instead of a stand in. I hope he does well tomorrow, I bet he's on the podium as long as he doesn't DNF. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

    It'd be incredible if Russell hopped in and won. He seems like a solid driver and a good dude. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app

    I don't know man, without the engineering, the impact would have killed him regardless of the fire. I mean look at the halo after the crash. That right there is a big part of what saved him. His car was in 3 pieces, but the survival cell stayed in tact and let him walk away from the incident with minor injuries after a 56G crash. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  13. My recruiter reached out to me about 10 days after my selection with some medical screening/MEPS forms for me to complete. The holidays will make things harder, but if it takes too much longer, I'd reach out the your POC with the hiring squadron and get clarification on what to expect. It shouldn't take a month to send a few emails. Throughout my process, I tried not to "bother" the pilot they told me would be my POC and trust recruiting to do their jobs. If I'd reached out to my POC when things weren't passing the smell test, I'd have gotten to OTS and UPT about 6 months earlier than I did.

    The safety of these cars is incredible. That was a horrific crash. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
  15. That's good that people in your area are wearing masks. I went to Sam's yesterday and saw at least 15 people without masks and multiple people wearing mesh masks. I also know of multiple daycares in my area that weren't taking any precautions because "kids don't get COVID", until they had multiple teachers and students come down with the virus and pass it between families. Some people just don't give a shit. Sent from my SM-N975U using Baseops Network mobile app
