  1. I'll lead in with this: welcome to Baseops my sweet summer child...oh wait... WELCOME TO THUNDERDOME In general: in AMC, you remain in the airframe you were assigned initially. C-130 slick bubbas stay in C-130 slicks. (common misconception: C-130 slick dudes do not easily slide into the AC or MC-130 unless selected). C-17 guys stay in C-17s. 25% of that C-17 force is airdrop qual'd and you'll have to ask an airdrop guy what that's all about...not my world. In honesty, there a lot of sincerely and deeply experienced dudes on this board. The question you've asked has been addressed many...many...many...many.......maaaaany times, HOWEVER it may or may not have been addressed recently. The environment is changing rapidly with each UPT graduation. The short answer to your core question: "if I track C-X am I stuck in C-X" the answer is unknown. The real answer is that that the cross-flow program is highly active and highly political...and HIGHLY TIME SENSATIVE. If you fly transport (C-5/C-130), then the tradition crossflow wants to put you into a tanker (KC-135/KC-10/KC46)...and vs versa. That transfer is 100% dependent on luck and timing. I can't say anything at all about fighter to fighter transfers. I ain't gay, but those tubby bitches love the cock. Be the best you can at your job. When you're given a job (reads.airframe.you.didn't.want) continue to be the best at your job and you will have options. Succeed and you may find that you're airframe is actually what you wanted (often happens), or that it steppingstone you to where you needed to be.
  2. Post the name. That pronoun is a cuntfart and should be treated as such. I haven't slapped something in a while and I'm due. If you're a 2-star, you are no longer shielded by the "military official" BS. Who is it?
  3. Bitch please. Obviously staged...we all know that telsa owners don't have beards without manbuns. Asshat.
  4. So, how much avgas can you put in the silos of a converted ballistic missile sub? Maybe couple that with an amphib tanker, or just airfields with dock access? Just saying, it's hard to blow up a fuel depot that you can't find...
  5. Definitely one of the coolest layovers. You gotta check out Connie.
  6. Wait...are ya'll arguing about the amenities of a new tube of shame, yet no one's going to deal with the fact that someone said "combat" and "tanker" in the same sentence?
  7. What's that? A millennial version of a 1911?
  8. *spoiler alert* 1000 sweaty germans in one tent, each drinking at least 5 liters of beer each, all wearing leather pants that have never been washed.
  9. I heard Putin is only drafting "non-cisgender men" though...to make sure proper diversity...so there's that...
  10. Correct. You are now discriminated against based on your gender. If you are white, you are now discriminated against based on your skin color. Obviously, the only way to get rid of racism and bigotry is more racism and bigotry. In other news, I highly recommend "Undaunted Life" a podcast for men, about men, by a man who is unapologetically a Christian man. No stones are left unturned. Not for the faint of heart.
  11. All kept I hearing was the drone operator thinking: "don't crash don't crash don't crash don't crash"
  12. ...which I doubt. Considering the lack of consistent funding and support they've had over the past decade, they'd be lucky to have HUMINT resources in place to give appropriate reporting. CIA has been getting crapped on since Clinton, and it can take decades to develop reliable and well placed sources. That said, with the rapid deterioration of Russia in...well...everything, it's entirely plausible they've had walk-ins with good intel.
  13. I don't care what Penny Benjamin you knocked up...that story has to be amazing! ....but did you die?
  14. Oh FFS. If you'll laugh @Bender when he's drunk...laugh at me. I taught that asshat how to fly and drink!
  15. Dude. Find those slides!!! If the 'men' I currently fly with are able obtain a FC1 at their age...with 'her slides'...i'll be amazingly able to fly at the age of 82 by the time I'm able to retire because of the amazing work of 'women/men/things/amorphous.animate.objects' such as her...
  16. FedEx takes a 24% hit. Not a good sign. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/09/15/stock-market-futures-open-to-close-news.html
  17. It's not that they can't let it go, it's that you just don't understand. You weren't there. You wouldn't know... If I had a nickel for every time I've been told something like that in the past two years...
  18. you're gunna need a bigger plane
  19. As a registered independent who's voted both red and blue, I think like you. We'll disagree on a lot, but we agree that the political answer is somewhere in the middle. Sadly, I agree. This is the only kind of answer that will actually get implemented. We can dream all day, but in the end my opinions should not be your law, just as your opinions should not be my law. What I call murder, someone else calls women's rights...but the truth is that we're broken, fallen people who A: need a savior and B: will not make it if we chose to die on every hill between your opinion and mine. Don't get me wrong, I've chosen several hills as mine. My sword will be notch and my shield dented by the end of this war, but if I chose to fight bravely and die quickly on Every, Single, Hill, I'm useless in my cause. If only we had a background...call it a history...where we all agreed on some basic moral truths...
  20. A: Nice work staying the course! B: Random question: Do you have a real estate license? I'm a few years behind you on that track...and I'm wondering if it's worth the time.
  21. You sweep away entire issues and seem ok with that. I'm not. Details and nuance are incredibly important. CBP agents are quoted time and again, that even with a partial wall, they were beginning to get a grip on illegal immigration because the wall creates choke points that the limited manpower of the CBP can then effectively manage. As it is, the incomplete wall made things worse by creating a road network (used for it's construction) that the cartels are now exploiting. Had the wall been completed, that wouldn't have been a problem. But you appear to be arguing that because the problem is complex and nuanced, we shouldn't take any steps toward a solution until we have the exact solution?...I'm guessing? More to the that specific topic...building a wall and tossing out illegals is EXACTLY what other countries do, and it works, really really well. Go look up Hungary's program if you're curious. Why shouldn't we start with a proven solution, implement, analyze the results and improve it? Now...to reading comprehension of your own: "Current DNC politicians who accept and endorse extremist liberalism" does not equal "Democrats" In fact I strongly wish democrat voters to remain democrat unless they are personally persuaded by facts...that's what politics is, btw: the are of convincing argument with the intent intellectual persuasion or agreement. We need healthy debate between opposite sides...which is exactly what's NOT happening because our country voted in: "DNC politicians who accept and endorse extremist liberalism" who insist that if you're not with them unquestioningly, then you're the enemy. FFS put down the stereotype glasses, stop looking for a way to be offended because you feel stereotyped by someone whom you stereotyped, and start coming up with objective, fact-based solutions.
  22. I'll agree there. Do you realize that the overwhelming majority of conservatives are not MAGA agenda republicans? Meanwhile, the majority of democrats are not extreme liberals. It's not melodramatic binary good vs evil...but the media wants us to think it is, because that keeps us watching the media. You're honestly sounding like CNN. In fact, the only place I've ever seen a "full MAGA" republican is in the media. Not saying they aren't real, just haven't encountered one myself yet. Most conservatives that I've met would rather Trump just go away. Unfortunately, the media won't let that happen. I'll agree that a sitting president making an attack on our seat of power would be objectively worse. Seeing he didn't clearly do that (unless you have pictures of him holding a gun and attacking congressmen), if it were clearly and objectively true, then he'd be in jail already. Best I can tell, he said some ill-thought out words to a crowd that may, or may not, have been stirred up by a few instigators within it to do some illegal things. Seriously, his whole presidency was ill thought out words, you think he all of a sudden dropped that to make a strategic mind-control event on Jan 6? That conclusion is irrational and illogical. Our government was never at risk of being over thrown. Pence was never going to overrule the or not-certify the results...those are his own words. All this trial crap is only to serve one purpose: theater...for whatever purpose the current administration seems to think it's worth. It's theater, and bad theater at that. If it were an investigation based on honest unbiased truth-finding, we would have seen the same investigation, FBI raids, and such happen with H Clinton...because she effectively did the same exact thing Trump is accused of...plus perjury. But it's not. It's biased politics using tax-payer money to try smear a competitor and get re-elected. I'll invite you to put the Never Trump hate away and kindly rejoin the objective and fact based discussion.
  23. Forgive me...but really? You'd rather the thousands of fentanyl deaths, cartel human trafficking, displacement of human lives by the 10's of thousands...not to mention the collapsing economy and rising inflation that's felt by the poor FAR more than the rich. You'd prefer that over an event that happened almost 2 years ago, most of the violators being peaceful...and still being in jail now...with only one fatality of questionable circumstances...that's where your conscience draws a line? So what are your thoughts on other large crowds doing damage in public? Such as Portland? The CHAZ? George Floyd Square...with the following found on a .69 second google search: Is George Floyd Square still occupied? By August 14, 2022, seven people had been killed by gun violence at the square since Floyd's murder, and one person had died there as the result of a drug overdose. Those events, by the principle that Jan 6th is abhorrent to you...these should be exponentially worse, right? But you're more worried about Jan 6th? Am I hearing you correctly?
