  1. I can probably count on both hands the number of nice things I've heard the media say about Trump over the last 5 years. He's viscously attacked no matter what he does. They don't even try to be objective. What they've been casting him and his supporters as has been very harmful to the social fabric of the country. Trump has actually trolled the media with these last minute "mix ups" on several occasions. I always find it humorous and, in contrast with what the media does to him, it is harmless.
  2. The media has been "trolling" him every waking minute for the last 5 years.
  3. Yes. The pilot section is easy. At worst he'll likely get in the mid 90's the second time around. Whatever hit his PCSM score might take from a slightly lower pilot score he can make up for by building more flight hours.
  4. Keep pushing. Retake the AFOQT if you can and find another recruiter to work with. Get your work situation straightened out...assume your potential squadron is going to call your manager and ask about you...you'd want nothing short of a glowing review, right? As others have suggested, consider reconsidering only wanting fighters.
  5. Update: I have been offered an interview. The catch is that the squadron did not ask about background history in their application. I have accepted the interview invitation but I am torn. Should I go to the interview and blindside them with my background info either at the interview or at a later date, or should I contact the squadron asap and preemptively tell them?
  6. I'm at it again since finding out the age limit got raised. Got busy with work, school, and some flight training I've been doing (taking IR checkride soon). Been sending out applications to guard squadrons and am getting in touch with active duty and reserve recruiters. I'm also expanding to the Army's WOFT program (which I have tried in the past but was rejected with them as well). All the guard squadrons in the last 3 months have given me the "no thanks", however I am seeing a sliver of hope. When asking for feedback I was told by 1 squadron that my history i
  7. https://www.rt.com/news/462533-iran-cyber-attack-unsuccessful/ Iran says they foiled it. If true, then better to find out now that it wouldn't have worked when it really counted.
  8. In 4 years of applying I have had 1 interview. My scores are good, GPA is good, LOR's are good, PPL etc. My problem is that I will need waivers/ETP's for medical, moral, and now age standards. I've been trouble free for 7 years now, but I've been arrested 5 times in my teens and again when I was 21. One of the arrests resulted in felony charges, and 2 arrests resulted in misdemeanors. The other 3 arrests I was released without charges. I have not been convicted of anything since I either did community service or my lawyer got the case dismissed. I also have 10 traffic violations b
  9. Just deleting some embarrassing "advice" I thought I was giving.
  10. They are still on track with their proposed timeline from earlier this year. Their last shelf offering should fund them through the first quarter of 2018 and some big milestones will be reached along the way. Price is down due to fear and nothing else.
  11. Last time I applied to them I got a rejection letter in the mail.
  12. I don't know for sure, but I'd guess that they would not dump the da Vinci if they acquired the SPORT. The SPORT should supplant the da Vinci for the most part, but not completely. The single-port approach does have limitations that the multi-port approach can overcome. So, some hospitals might want to keep both consoles available. When I say some hospitals though, I am referring to the major medical centers where money seems to be no object. Smaller regional centers that are most cost conscious that mainly do simple routine procedures don't have a need for the da Vinci, perhaps partly bec
