Not only does that fly against the tradition of the United States, it flies in the face the fact that in this nation, the Military is subservient to the civilian population, not the other way around. That isn't what America should be about. Kennedy had a military parade during his inauguration comp...Jump to post
Ask everyone on US 1549, or Lion Air 904 ... just two flights that ended up in the water. How on Earth am I supposed to contact everyone on those flights? Can you point me in the right direction on how I might go about that? It would be interesting to know what they thought. That was clearly sarcas...Jump to post

My Weber grill is just waiting to be used, but when it's cold and rainy on the weekends, it's all but a fantasy. Stupid rules of the complex...I've thought about moving and/or buying a place of my own. I've also thought about buying a vacuum sealer so that I can prepare large amounts of meat and si...Jump to post
I didn't say that we didn't have transportation for 2 weeks. I said we were in a state of emergency for 2 weeks. In that 2 week period, aviation was shut down, subways in NYC were shut down, and some public buses were closed. All true statements. While some may have been out for longer than others,...Jump to post
Remember how dumb people were for calling Obama a Muslim who wanted to destroy America when he was elected? Remember the idiotic Republicans who for years questioned his legitimacy and how "crazy and delusional" they were? "He's going to end the Republic" and all that. That's hap...Jump to post
This is typical. If you hire a PR firm, and advertising firm, or any sort of consulting firm they will come up with something new just to justify their cost and existence. How many new HR hiring guidelines or customer service plans have you had at your current company? I bet a few. Amazing how quick...Jump to post
If a democrat is elected the republicans will do everything they can do to de-legitimize them. If a republican wins the democrats will do everything to de-legitimize them. Business as usual.

His directive is not really strange at all. Every president in modern times has done it, so why not? There are vacant positions and holdups with nominations all the time. None of this is unusual. Actually Trump's move is rather odd - unprecedented is the correct term. http://www.independent.co.uk/n...Jump to post

How can I go about learning more about it. 3 editors were picked, who will be writing content for studioD and not Airliners.net (I will not list their names for privacy reasons).

What are some things the government/people can do to help the situation for all involved?Jump to post
1. I doubt it. 2. If it were to happen I'd say the only one even likely to be considered would be FDR, but even that is a stretch. Its a National Park so any major changes would be subject to congress/presidential approval and there's no way anything that political would pass. And I think that's a g...Jump to post

You're not powerless. You and the other unpaid volunteers can resign. Force them to deal with the issues in a more direct way by not being part of the problem. That is real, direct action you can take to bring a bit more attention to this disaster. Hey, you wont be the first employees to jump off t...Jump to post
Oh, I fully understand everyone's frustration and I don't blame you guys. It's just a bit of a powerless feeling at times that sucks. But hey, I'll keep trying.

With this ever lengthening hiatus period, I would think that A.net must be truly hemorrhaging visitors. Have to say that I find myself in the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' faction.

Just how long are we going to have to wait on the layout fix? All we've seen so far is "soon", which could mean in 30 minutes or never, like Half-Life 3.

I've been a member here for 13 years and these days pop in sporadically. I'm surprised that, in 2016, a website can show such a lack of thought. It lacks intuition, the ads are horrible and I find myself using the site less and less as it's just such a mess on the screen! I know it's being updated ...Jump to post
To allay security concerns, they could be shrink-wrapped in colored plastic, so they're clearly identifiable as harmless fakes. . so security ignores anything wrapped that way and it's even easier to get real ones through. Maybe not. You can get pretty much anything through security already so what...Jump to post

Bunch of nerds in this thread. Stop trying to dictate what others do in their life that has no impact on you what so ever.
