  2. During an FAA physical the doc told me something funny/true. "The Air Force only wants you to last 20 years, we want you to last longer than that."

  4. I don't think any discussion of increasing the initial ADSC is worth merit. At some point its becoming predatory. Do you really want a dude at the 11-13 year point flying planes who is only showing up to work each day because he feels like he is under obligation of the law to not go to jail. At least at 10 years you still feel like you have a few exit options. Honestly, I think the AF needs to rethink pilot ADSC's all together. I bet you raise retention by shortening the ADSC. Shorten it to 6 years, pay the bonus out in 3 year increments based on accepting another PCS and reduce the amou

  8. Seems an interesting time was had by all... "Regrettably, Clarkson got off to a bad start with Yeager as the host arrived late for the interview due to a last minute changes in his schedule.The host shared: “He was standing there, looking at his watch and, as I climbed out of the car, he said: ‘You’re 15 minutes late.’ 'Naturally, I assumed he was joking, so I replied: ‘That’s nothing. You were three years late for the Second World War.' The Airforce officer clearly showed how annoyed he was at Clarkson. He spun on his foot, stormed out, and slammed the door."

  9. Being around for the start of the anthrax shots and the side effects that cost guys their careers and refusals that were followed up by judicial action. Don't even get me started with the stuff we got before the start of the Desert Storm. I would say be careful what you wish for.

  17. @yervis is spot on. Got hired with a guard fighter unit in June and have yet to get a MEPS appointment. It is truly at a snails pace right now, unfortunately...

  18. Aircraft fly all the time, every second of the day. Unfortunately, sometimes they crash. Does it happen often? Statistically no, but it does happen. When one crashes are all aircraft grounded forever and redesigned? No. Historically the benefits outweigh the risk of flying. But statistically if aircraft continue to fly, they will also crash. If people still use voting to elect officials, you will have voting fraud. What surprises me is that supposedly educated individuals on this forum are shocked that a system created by humans is not infallible. As someone said previously it’s almost li

  21. I suppose I basically agree with you, if the only way forward for NK was welfare... Another perspective, though, is that there are companies that are DYING to invest money into NK because what it actually represents is massive, latent economic output which is currently handicapped because of its government...never mind the hundreds of thousands of SKs that have relatives in NK they'd like to reunite with. While it would take "trillions" to repair it, I think the ROI would be positive. Take a look at SK for two seconds...what makes them so different? Nothing. 0. Currently, we're "i

  22. This is a fantastic point. If he stays on message (which if you check his twitter...he will) the left will have that to point to for distraction for however long it lasts. His lackeys will also cause this to happen. The fracturing of the Conservatives will continue to weaken the voting base. It's not that weak now (re: House seats gained, kept Senate), but at some point there will probably be candidates Donny doesn't like..what happens then? These folks are clamoring for either Trump to run again in 2024, or his kids to. That's an automatic no from me and a lot of my friends. We a

  23. This exactly. I voted for Trump twice and still think he was the best candidate in both elections. However, I haven’t seen anything that shows me there was actually widespread voter fraud. I do think there are some weak points in our system that need to be shored up, including a consistent system for mail in voting and a good way to track absentee ballots. I know of a case of someone voting absentee in a state they no longer lived in because they were lazy and hadn’t changed their ID or voter registration. Were things like that enough to sway the election? I don’t think so and haven’

  26. False choice. Never said I was in favor of lockdown. Nor is that a viable long term strategy. Vaccinating a population against a pandemic novel virus with no pre existing human immunity is a viable strategy that will work. You don’t have to like it, but the world we live in is one that will continue to place severe restrictions on what we previously considered normal life. Why so resistant to simple and effective mitigation strategies that will get our kids back in school and our economy back on its feet?
