  1. Thread bump for those that haven’t read JeremiahWeed’s post here on page 5. It’s been almost 8 years since posting. Truly epic and deserving of the revival.
  2. I think he’s doing a good enough job of that on his own. I predict the lid gets blown off of the Bidens soon. I think the classified docs, the insane amounts of money, his health, Hunter, the drugs, the laptop, the Chinese, the Penn Biden Center, etc are all connected. I truly believe the smoking gun will be found in the classified docs. I don’t think the powers in DC or in the media can keep it hidden for much longer. Hopefully, people’s eyes are finally opened to what the elites are up to and we get the massive reset we need in this country.
  3. Men aren’t entirely powerless. I’m divorced from my first wife and mother of my oldest daughter. That ex-wife is bat shit crazy and did all kinds of things to attempt to ruin my life and my relationships. I fought like hell for my daughter. Because that is what a man does. They fight for their family. They protect their kids. It was easy to get custody of my daughter based on my ex wife’s documented behavior. It was certainly expensive and stressful but it wasn’t hard. I am honestly baffled by the comments here. Been in the military a long time and been around these forums a long time. I’m surprised because the mindset and opinions on this topic runs completely contrary to what most of us stand for. Or maybe I’m missing a few people’s points here. But what I hear is that if a woman can be the sole decision maker when it comes to abortion or leaves their newborn at a fire station then a man should be able to abandon their child. I can’t get behind that. Maybe because I despise dead beat dads.
  4. We talking about a woman’s right to anonymously give their newborn child up or abortion?
  5. I stand by what I said. You don’t fix evil with more evil. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Basic life lessons there. It may be legal to have an abortion. That certainly doesn’t mean that men should be able to abandon their kids. Hypocrisy, fairness, “my body right” - whatever…. Hell, if men didn’t abandon their kids there would be much much less abortion.
  6. The entire conversation is just so sickening. We are talking about mothers being able to kill their babies and if they don’t then the father being able to abandon them. These conversations slowly creep along until you are drowning in evil and don’t even recognize it.
  7. The definition of election fraud has changed. Pay close attention to what Elon Musk is exposing. The truth always come out.
  8. There are numerous documented examples of him outright lying or making up stories going back decades. I’m not surprised by this latest story.
  9. He’s not stupid. He garnered such a huge following and won the election because he was not part of the machine. He stood there and told Hillary to her face that “she’d be in jail”. Your average American had been waiting for someone - anyone to say that to someone like Hillary Clinton. He followed that campaign with a massive number of successful policies. And the machine went all in on him. He could have gotten up off the mat, dusted himself off, learned from the experience and came back with a stronger message. But he didn’t. He’s selling trading cards and continues to make outlandish claims. Which is why I don’t think he’s serious about running again even though he announced his candidacy. And that’s ok with me.
  10. And released one of the biggest arms dealers in history while advocating for a ban on assault/semi-automatic weapons.
  11. I get really irritated with the “election denier” claims that are made against people by the media. It’s the end of democracy blah blah blah. Their defense is always to go on the offense. It was absolutely crystal clear during that election cycle that there was interference going on. And it wasn’t the Russians on behalf of Trump like we were told for years and years. The election was rigged by social media, the mainstream media, the Democrat Party and 3 letter agencies of the government. Trump was crushed by the machine while Biden was propped up. All while suppressing Hunter’s shenanigans and business dealings. It’s all going to start coming out starting with what Musk is doing with Twitter. And it’s not like we got anything good out of it. This administration is an absolute train wreck.
  12. It sounds like your career ran from roughly 1995 to 2015. There were definitely some really shitty AF leaders during those years. I don’t have any opinions on you trying to get new equipment, justifying a larger budget or expanding mission sets. I wasn’t there so I can’t speak to the unique challenges that folks in your organization faced. However, “maintaining morale” and “handing out discipline” is something I think I can speak to. It’s helpful to remember that the Es like to handle that stuff in house. When it comes to maintaining morale there is often a disconnect in what the Es are interested in and what the Os are interested in. A lot of times it comes down to what the younger Es can afford. IRT discipline, it’s sometimes best to let the Es handle it and let the Os have plausible deniability. I often remind myself that, as Es, we are not only leading our folks, we are raising young men and women. The officers have completed college, gone through a commissioning process and are typically older. That is completely different than getting a 19 year dude/dudette that just graduated HS. They are often immature and most have just left home for the first time. I say all of this to hopefully help you with better memories of the enlisted leaders that you served with. They had very different challenges, responsibilities and goals than you did (assuming you were an officer). Cheers
  13. I have a couple questions for you. What do you think of the work that the E-1 to E-7s do? What prompted this post and is it tied to a specific recent experience that you can describe?
