  1. I am at a loss for words, WTF are these idiots thinking? Stop retired pay. Stop VA pay. No choice of duty station. No promotion opportunity. Your time on VRRAD does NOT count towards time in service. Sooo come work in a crap hole of our choosing, for half pay, no promotion and its doesn't count towards your retirement. FU!
  2. Chaos about to ensue once again. Whats old is new...stand by for a major restructure that includes Composite Wings.
  3. Thread revival... Given the recent lack of blots panel blow out issue a lot of folks are leery to fly the max. I saw this a couple of hours ago on a Delta form, anyone on the line have validation or an update? "Update from second leg on Max9 aircraft: Well folks stuck here on the ground at DEN in a max9 we pushed back then the aircraft lost power and emergency power came on. Captain came on a few minutes later and said that 17 other aircraft are experiencing the same issue. A value in the APU is freezing over and not allowing the engines to start. The current temp on the ground is 36 degrees. I think it’s another issue with Boeing possibly? Waiting on a tug to get back to the gate. The flight attendant told the group of us in the back that he’s never heard of this happening nor has experienced it."
  4. Which is EXACTLY the problem. No delay...hammer them as a backdrop and message of response for those brave Americans. I don't want war, but weakness is the wrong signal to people that want to end our way of life.

    How did you know I was a lefty?
  6. This is one of the migrants arrested for beating the cops, as he is being released from jail and confronted by the press.

    Running a mix of slug and Double 00 Buckshot. It does when it goes boom 🙂 I love it, the only flaw I've found is the front grips are REALLY rough and spiky. I shoot using the C Clamp method and minus gloves it will tear your hand up. Garand Thumb does a great review of this gun and he noted the same. He suggests you sand it down a bit which I plan to do this weekend.

    Speaking of Beretta...just got the A300 and I love it!
  9. Five migrants were arrested, four were released WITHOUT bail, one of them has TWO open cases for assault and robbery...Again, this (open borders, defund the police, no accountability), is a choice our liberal friends want.
  10. As if the 11 million illegals haven't caused enough chaos now this...and as we've seen in Europe, it will only get worse. A group of illegals attack police who are trying to arrest their friend.
  11. Until POTUS sends - CEASE FIRE we must remain feckless and limp.
  12. I believe it was phrased "by a foreign Air Force." The tech works, mostly...it can be overwhelmed by a swarm attack. The being said, if you misidentify the incoming drone as one of your own all the Counter-UAS capability in the world doesn't matter. First rule of Fight Club...
  13. It should be measured but overwhelming. It should also reflect not only the attack on Tower 22, but the 151 previous attacks on Americans. We only have one carrier forward (the Ike), and she doesn't have any F-35C's so strike along the coast to stay medium risk. I would prefer to save the TLAMs for a follow up response if needed. Also, I would have an even bigger response ready should Iran respond like they did last time.
  14. Horrible - will we remain weak or turn loose some whoopass?
  15. Bus - I would like to agree but history has repeatedly proven otherwise. In short, China is likely to have a LOT of young disgruntled men who cant find jobs or women. Everytime that has happened in past history leaders have used war to focus the anger elsewhere and cull the herd. I hope I am wrong.
  16. Biden lays border crisis on Trump admin's refusal to cooperate Of course Biden blames it on Trump and the liberal press pushes that same narrative.
  17. The equivalent of the city of Pittsburg is coming across our border every MONTH. Where are they going, where do they live and who pays for it? Rhetorical of course. Ten retired FBI directors and experts in counter intelligence sent a letter to congressional leaders warning that President Joe Biden’s border policies have facilitated a “soft invasion” into the U.S. of military-age men coming from terror-linked regions, China and Russia. "It would be difficult to overstate the danger represented by the presence inside our borders of what is comparatively a multi division army of young single adult males from hostile nations and regions whose background, intent, or allegiance is completely unknown.” "It would be difficult to overstate the danger represented by the presence inside our borders of what is comparatively a multi division army of young single adult males from hostile nations and regions whose background, intent, or allegiance is completely unknown. They include individuals encountered by border officials and then possibly released into the country, along with the shockingly high estimate of 'gotaways,' meaning those who have entered and evaded apprehension.” Keep in mind, this is EXACTLY what our liberal friends want, they continue to fight for it at every turn, every day.
  18. Indeed it was not a prediction, I was sharing the thoughts of some others that are far more draconian, BUT ones we should listen to and consider. As others have noted Peter Z does a great job of walking through the socioeconomic conditions that are pulling china into this downward spiral. I would balance his comments with and the lose of control predictions with the reality of having a brutal dictator running the show, one who is reluctant to give up power and will take actions that may worsen the conditions of the population if it allows him to remain in control. The breaking point others have predicted is all predicated upon the people rising up, and we have seen how that has gone in China in the past. Something is happening in China and Jinping is swinging a big bat. It was widely reported China Closed 2023 With a Military Purge, especially interesting that he went after the not only his top 9 generals but also the PLA Rocket Force. They are supposed to be the asymmetric advantage that will hold the U.S. at bay should we respond to an attack/invasion of Taiwan. With this and other actions Jinping is now in an echo chamber of his own thoughts and words and we've seen what has happened in the past when a single person has that much power.
  19. Now the fight for the VP slot. I see the front runners as Elise Stefanik, Kristi Noem, Tim Scott, or Ron Desantis. He ruled Haley out which is odd as it would have brought him some voted from the middle.
  20. The first one seriously fucked some people up. Will Joe remain feckless and allow this to go unchallenged?
  21. In many ways it is true. The Ukrainians, using our tech, have been inflicting personnel losses at a 5:1 ratio (10:1 when it comes to armor and fighting vehicles), that being said, the Russians in typical manner have settled into a battle of attrition which is their ideological way of war. Unfortunately for Ukraine, Russia has three times the population and Vlad seems content to continue to throw his country's youth into the meat grinder. Additionally, Russian industry has been cranking up tank production and while they continue to lose their vehicles fast than they can produce them, they still have deep reserves and without continued replacements the Ukraine force will degrade.
  22. The Gators and Napier continue their nosedive...as reported yesterday the Gator football program has been under investigation by the NCAA since June. NCAA Reportedly Investigating Florida Football Program I am not going to dogpile too much, as much as I dislike the Gators, it appears this is all about NIL which is a disaster unleashed on all teams by the NCAA. FSU was just sanctioned for violations and one has to wonder how clear the rules are and how many other teams will soon be investigated. @M2 - You guys need to clean house in the coaching department. It is a great school with an incredibly loyal fanbase, how are they letting Napier continue. Are making a bet for Aug 31? Should we go to the game?
