SNAP (1/4)



  1. So to recap: Opinion “why does anyone put opinions on social media, no one cares what you think” Edited to add: More opinion. lolz Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Where in the 75 Million do we draw the line on who is ignorant, and who is not? 40/35? 70/5? 65/10? just curious... I’d also like to see the same analysis done on the “more educated” Liberal voters. There are ignorant people on both sides of the aisle (reference any of the numerous man on the street quizzes). The Republican Party needs to figure it out though, because the numbers no matter what coalition they come up with: Trump/NeverTrump/Moderate etc might still not be enough to win a national election unless there is a severe decline in voter participation and 2020 was an anomaly.

  3. I know my commute is too long if I have to remember to pee before Ieave the house. Also, 90 mins each way is 15 hours a week = 60 hours a month/2.5 days a month = 30 days a year in the car driving to/from work! Obviously not counting days of leave/holidays/tdy/deployment, but you get my point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. People don’t like AFSOC’s self-proclaimed premier CONUS installation????? It always drove me nuts when people at the regularly scheduled ‘fix the AF CGO forum’ complained about assignments of three years being too short. It was always people from real horrible locations like Hickam, or name your base in FL, Etc. I wanted nothing more than for them to eat their words and spend 5 years at Cannon.

  5. Cop(s) deserved to be investigated, and based upon ALL the facts (which none of us are privy to), arrested and charged or not arrested/charged. That’s how justice works. There are multiple sides to every story, and right now all we have are partial video accounts. I’d certainly be interested in seeing all the body camera footage if it is ever released. The unfortunate reality in today’s America is that any high profile cases will be tried in the media courtroom long before the accused ever sees his/her day in actual court. The rules don’t apply and you are not innocent until proven guilty. Not saying the cop was in the right, just saying I’d prefer our justice system (though not perfect) over mob justice.

  6. It was merely commentary on all the people complaining about the size of their tax refunds when what really matters is what your net tax rate [(12 months witholding minus refund)/gross income] is year over year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. So we won’t get that 3% back when we file our taxes next april? Sounds like we are getting ripped off! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. http://www.airforcemag.com/Features/Pages/2018/March%202018/Goldfein-Solutions-for-the-Pilot-Crisis-Center-on-Diversity.aspx Problem has already been solved at the highest level, everyone back to work!
  9. Growing up we had a family friend who flew P-38’s in WW2. He said the requirement when he signed up was 2 yrs of college to become a pilot. I understand at one point they also had enlisted “flight officer” pilots. I’m guessing requirements shifted as the needs increased. Why not try dropping the requirement to two years of college to get a commission before doing away with the requirement all together. Other than money, and the few who really want to lead the paperwork war,... why would anyone want to become an officer? It’s my understanding that O’s who are pilots in the Army get stuck as paper pushers, while the WO’s are the combat leaders in the plane/helo. I think we have a few people on this forum that could speak to the validity/invalidity of that. At the end of the day, this is just another way for the Air Force to fix the problem by not addressing the real problem.
  10. I tried googling this and couldn't find anything. Anyone have a source on this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. 100% tracking until the last one... Wasn't Social Security supposed to be the "Social Insurance" plan? Instead it turned into a piggy bank and a government run retirement plan (Ponzi scheme) As Reagan said... "The more the plans fail, the more the planners plan." Everything else was very sound advice. I've noticed the SNCO's push the TSP on our younger airmen now. However, when I ask them what they invested it in they have no idea. I think un-allocated funds go into the G-fund until you tell them where to go... one step at a time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Almost 20% of the AD guys from T-1s are getting the MQ-9. (Assuming the last few drop reports here have been accurate). For those of you dreamers reading this post... Choose wisely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Nope, but I would have it framed and hung in the bar for posterity's sake... Lest we make the same mistakes twice.
  14. Oh wait, I thought these guys just told me for the last 7 years that preventing sexual assault was everyone's responsibility...I guess we are all off the hook now?
