  1. I'll let someone else address the rest of your post, but if you think an aerobatic plane will scratch the itch of flying fighters then I think your assessment is dead wrong. Then again, different stokes for different folks.
  2. Change it when it doesn't work for your party, but crickets when it does? Looks like Schumer and gang might regret their decision for requiring only a simple majority for SC judge appointments.
  3. I wouldn't necessarily say underwhelming. I would say the AFOQT scores are definitely a barrier for some, if not a lot of fighter units. But If he can rush and mesh really well with a unit, having that PCSM won't push his app to the trash. That's really emphasizing rushing though. I think I've only seen 1 or 2 fighter units have a PCSM requirement of 85+.
  4. For SA, I've noticed a lot of advice given on asking the squadron you interviewed at but not selected advice on a debrief and advice. Take everything with a grain of salt. The same things I did at one interview to get picked up was met with resistance at another squadron. For example, I was told that "I don't fit into fighter culture, maybe you should join the Marine Corps instead." Don't get discouraged and keep going. It's not going to get any easier from here on out, but if you grind hard and really mesh well with a squadron, then your chances will be pretty high. Good luck all!
  5. Having early onset dementia is wildly different than calling people wrong names.
  6. Lied about his inauguration crowd? Sure. Called John McCain a loser because he lost the 2008 election? Sure. Promised tax cuts? ✅ Quitting Paris deal? ✅ Conservative judges in courts? ✅ Handling ISIS? ✅ Moving Israel embassy? ✅ Reduce ME presence? ✅ Better trade agreements? ✅ Border wall progress? ✅ Many major platform promises delivered. Yet the "news" focuses on the minutiae. I don't care for leftist "news" media outlets who have nothing better to say than "orange man bad". Fact checking is indeed not fact checking anymore, but has become a political tool to call someone you don't agree with a liar. The fact that you can have factcheck, politifact, or snopes as sources and we can't even use fox is extremely telling of bias and dishonesty.
  7. How do those photos prove he is a liar? Trump's approval rating is where Obama's was before his reelection.
  8. What specifically has made him a pathological liar to you?
  9. I'll concede on what you said above because I don't have much knowledge on those subjects. If they are legitimate failures on his part then so be it, he is still a human and isn't perfect, are you? I'll let someone else chime in on those policies. As for the apocalyptic cities, all democrat cities, how can you say that is the federal government's fault? Those cities have been shit holes for decades, long before Trump. As far as I know, BLM and Antifa are all on the left. None of those people will be voting for Trump. He has repeatedly offered federal help for Portland and Wisconsin. Go look up what Ted Wheeler said to Trump. Go look what Gov. Evers said to Trump. So let me get this straight. It is Trump's fault that the cities are burning, but when he deploys federal aid to Portland around late July, he is now a fascist? You cannot have it both ways. There is no logic in that thought. And now the left wants us to think "vote for Joe and it will all go away!" Yeah, no. That is actually called extortion. A Trump supporter is executed outside of his neighborhood in Portland for being in Patriot Prayer. The gov. of Oregon blames white supremacists. Let me channel my inner leftist, "that is literally disgusting."
  10. Lmao. Pelosi is now attacking the salon owner and claiming she set her up. Pelosi is on another level!
  11. Have you heard him actually talking in this instance? If not, I encourage you to go watch and hear with your own ears, instead of pulling an article accusing him.
  12. My statement is more general. To yours, yes. 2 years of controlling house, senate, and executive and they don't pull the trigger on many subjects. The GOP is weak and pathetic. It is sad that we have to rally around such a weak party but Trump has made great strides and unfortunately the GOP really is a firewall against the radical left. It's all we really have.
  13. 1 party is introducing socialist platforms, and 1 party is firmly against that. That is all one needs to know to make a logical choice.
  14. It's ok for Nancy Pelosi to go to a hair salon in shut down California, then claiming she "didn't know the rules". Rules for thee
  15. My point is the narrative being spewed by the MSM. Not "a bunch of idiots on both sides". One side actively lies and misinforms us. Especially when we are being told that "self proclaimed militia members drove into downtown Portland last night ,armed and looking for a fight. Every Oregonian has the right to freely express their views without fear of deadly violence. I will not allow Patriot Prayer and armed white supremacists to bring more bloodshed to our streets." Straight from the governor.
  16. When this is perfectly acceptable and actively encouraged by MSM, with no mention of concern for the spread of COVID, but this is lambasted by the MSM as "Trump, Pence greet crowd of supporters without masks" How can anyone take COVID seriously whether you think it is a threat or not?
  17. And because Corn Pop was a bad dude..
  18. Your AFOQT scores are definitely doable. I would say your best bet is rushing so they can look over those "weak" scores. Otherwise, try and aim for a good PCSM and that should place you in a decent position moving forward.
  19. Now we just need Top Gun 2 to come out. Then being a fighter pilot will be the coolest job in the world again and we can stop being so insecure, until people start forgetting about the movie...
  20. I've had people actually tell my wife I don't know what I'm talking about or doing and literally say "you can't become a fighter pilot in the guard, that's impossible". Who cares about these people's opinions. I think EvilEagle is spot on. We are going to lose connections and have nothing in common with people who act like this. In turn, we will join one of the greatest brotherhoods on the planet. Let them act like asses. We all know you're about to do the coolest job in the world. Who cares what they think?
  21. Your scores are good for both heavies and fighters, whatever path you decide. I don't think you should have a problem getting interviews. Now nailing the interview is a different question...
  22. I haven't been to MEPS yet. They found them in my medical records listed. I'm surprised it's a PDQ especially because it's normal to have dry eyes for a little bit after surgery and use eye drops for a bit.
