  1. There’s a LOT of grey space and wiggle room between those two bolded statements. I’m curious if you’ve ever been involved in this world or are only academically familiar, because DOD could absolutely have done this within existing legal carve outs.
  2. Agreed. Don’t heckle like a little baby bitch, cowboy up and throw a chair at somebody’s face.
  3. getting the Pfizer shot is more likely to harm people of our age group than COVID, according to Pfizer data.
  4. based on your comments, I think you would be disappointed, bored, and under-whelmed by the 146. If you’re set on mobility, go MC-J, a lot of cool things happening there and it’s where the command is focused right now. If you’re not set on mobility (and you shouldn’t be), gunships & Draco both enable opportunities to work with amazing people who will inspire constant improvement by providing specific feedback on your many deficiencies as a combat aviator. Happy to help via PM.
  5. Do Denmark, Norway, Austria, Estonia, Latvia also agree? Does Florida agree? it’s tough to say what views “most in her profession” share given the well documented government endorsed censorship. It looks to me like the C19 risk/reward decision matrix is far more nuanced than CDC has acknowledged. Which means we shouldn’t have mandated it.
  6. Do you think the rest of the medical institutions say the C19 vaccines are safe?
  7. We lost the last one, but GOs weren’t fired so the organization already forgot. To me the worst part of 1206s is lack of feedback. I spent hundreds of hours trying to get folks recognized and never received feedback on why they were or were not the chosen one. Our processes can’t work with shitty/toxic GOs running them, and we’ll never convince inspiring officers to stay unless we treat them better. Which we can’t do because we’re managed by shitty/toxic GOs…. The downward spiral is tragic.
  8. Great article, provides a lot of amplifying detail. Thanks for posting. Why might the Delta pilots not have seen the aircraft crossing in front of them? Not throwing spears at anyone, and I’ve never been to JFK; just curious what I’m missing.
  9. COVID is an actual thing, cooked in a Chinese military bio weapons lab (partially funded by Fauci), released on the world (maybe by accident), which then killed tons of people. I do not think it originated as a way for rich people to get richer, nor do I think anyone is saying that. However, it is undeniable that one of many side effects has been some rich people exploiting the situation to make themselves richer (Bill Gates). And the government also turned this into a power grab (they’re still fighting in the courts for the right to forcibly mask you on airplanes). Additionally, there was a massive conspiracy to suppress information and free speech in order to perpetuate this power grab; evidence of government collusion is now overwhelming. You are a victim of this effort, and I wish you the best as you struggle to regain autonomy from truly evil people who have lied to you and turned you on your fellow countrymen to increase their profit margins and political power. The moment dudes like you & Nsplayr & Negatory realize you were hit with a deliberate psyop to benefit people/corporations that hate you and would rather your children be physically poisoned than lose their grasp on your mind… I will celebrate 🥃
  10. Totally agree. When I was a captain the idea of flying airlines for $$ while my bros remained in the fight was unpalatable. Getting out in 2012 was the logical financial choice, but was not what I valued. So I stayed, got to overload on war stuff, etc. Right call for me. Now war’s over and there’s not a single O6 job remotely appealing, but I’m very excited about the airline world! It’s been eye-opening to see all the other aviation paths out there as I meet folks with radically different backgrounds. It has validated my decision to stay AF when I did: I’d have been miserable watching the team collect scalps while I fretted about 401k options. But now door A is closed so I’m moving on. All that to say: military pilots are a special breed and I salute each of you. Do AGR if that works (wouldn’t have for my niche world) or get out at initial ADSC if that’s your jam, or stay if you still love it despite the warts. Regardless of the path you choose, I recommend enough self-reflection to have no regrets. My only regret is taking the bonus. The money seems appealing but it’s insignificant in the grand scheme of life; when you are ready to go you want the ability to go immediately.
  11. Never should have been a mandate. I will never forget all the COVID psychos within our ranks and the massive damage they caused; they were pushing a mandatory booster so hard but thank God that didn’t become policy. What a tragic episode in DOD. There must be accountability or we’ll never recover legitimacy.
  12. Awesome link, thank you for posting! Pages of worthless NOTAMS with “runway closed” buried in the middle is one of many frustrating realities I’ve accepted but wish I could fix. Genuinely refreshing to read that website.
  13. Nooo, I have no idea what you could possibly mean. when we bugged out for the Iranian TBMs 3 years ago, we had a CSO find a secret kneeboard accidentally stashed in his go bag. His first reaction— he ate it.
  14. Yes. Just ensure your IDE/SDE program of choice includes an accredited MA. Not all do.
  15. That’s exactly right. There’s no connection between our system’s desired pedigree for career success and actually winning wars. And until our nation holds accountable for failure “leaders” like Miley and Austin, this practice will continue.
  16. good post Chuck. I have 3 MAs on the USAF dollar. I enjoyed ACSC and the chance to publish more than I expected. I didn’t realize what a bad writer I was until attending. The ability to concisely articulate accurate thoughts directly correlates to command success. There is no Pilot crisis in the AF. Regardless of appearances at the SQ level, there’s no crisis until the Bobs prioritize & change policy accordingly. This new emphasis on worthless online masters is a loud and clear message about organizational priorities.
  17. Confirmed, official release today, takes effect 1 Jan 23.
  18. I don’t know if “plenty of war to be had” is a fair characterization, but maybe I’m a war junkie. It’s like a 99% decrease from 2001-2021 levels. TEA for kinetic or DA is GCC level with CJCS briefings.
  19. On track to be the greatest scandal in US history. Implications are astounding.
  20. Sounds like it’s time for the USAF to initiate a study on the topic. Maybe some surveys. I’m sure it’ll all be fixed right after.
  21. No, I could smoke outside which still allows my freedom without inhibiting your freedom from second hand smoke. Requiring an action is fundamentally different than not allowing an action. Any of these statements can be taken to a logical absurdity, which is not my intent or yours. I’m guessing you thought it was unreasonable for people walking alone on a deserted beach to be arrested for not wearing a mask; unfortunately that outcome is the inevitable result of mandates by unaccountable parties.
