NEW AD: Republican Vets Against Trump https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUBwxpDfLok No one can argue with these true American Patriots. As an Air Force vet, I hear these guys loud and clear. You cannot support Gen. Michael Flynn and these guys too. BN747 Yet people will do exactly that. They're servi...Jump to post

It IS secret....in WA State one inserts the ballot into a separate "secrecy envelope" then THAT is put into the postage paid return envelope. Have you even seen a mail in ballot? In Washington state there are also secure ballot drop off boxes you can use instead of putting it in the mail.Jump to post
But if you gave me a pile of ballot envelopes with the return address clearly visible, and cross-referenced them against a list of local Rep or Dem supporters, I could work out which ones to lose, and which ones to forward on, without opening a single envelope . I have spent four decades supervisin...Jump to post
They are both guilty of it. Don't know how far it will go usually most Clinton accusers of anything wind up mysteriously dead. .
Why you referencing Dershowitz? So far only person implicated by an accuser is Clinton.
You might want to add "massive debt load to service" to your list. The old excuse of "but look at how much positive cash flow we generate" no longer applies. They themselves are saying it will not break zero till end 2021 and Lord knows if that is reasonable or not. Forgot about...Jump to post
I don't have a subscription, but The Air Current seems to be making a similar point, the move from PAE to CHS has been in the works for a very long time and the outcome is inevitable.

Japanese naval doctrine had a very specific focus before the war - create a situation where they could have a local, qualitative superiority over the U.S. Navy's Pacific forces, crush them in a decisive battle, and use the freedom of action gained thereby to secure their Pacific objectives and end ...Jump to post

So, the EU looked to America with respect and deference until magically it all changed with Trump. How bout the ‘80# and the non-stop battles over NATO nuclear weapons in Europe. How about the ‘90s and how to deal with Russia, former Yugoslavia and Bosnian wars. Then there was the expansion of NATO...Jump to post
Well why wouldn't they be able to pay for it? They would be saving money from their property taxes since there would be no police force. That's the money they would use to pay for private security.

Stone’s case is extremely similar to Obama’s pardon of Retired Marine Gen. James E.

I think the biggest fault of the Japanese was the failure to adapt and change. Early in the Pacific War, the Japanese had excellent equipment and tactics. They were also very well-trained and well-drilled. Through 1942 and into early 1943, in particular, they won a variety of naval engagements beca...Jump to post
So what, every president commutes/pardons convicts who are one their side. Go look at Clinton’s and Obama’s record. Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, a bought and paid favor, his HUD Secretary.

I think it might be interesting to introduce legislation to disband police forces and just allow private security firms to provide protection to communities. It would be paid for like an HOA assessment. That way communities that want protection can pay for it. Those that don't can just go without. ...Jump to post
From Wikipedia: The monument was designed by Frank Teich, who in 1896 was made an honorary member of Dallas Chapter, No. 6 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC). The cornerstone was dedicated by the UDC Dallas chapter on June 25, 1896. The dedication of the monument on April 29, 1897 was...Jump to post
Perhaps, but less police engagement seems to be producing much more violent crime. Defunding the police does not seem to be the answer. Perhaps we should try more police officers. Dumping more money into police and prisons is not the answer. If you think that's the answer let me just point out that...Jump to post
Or maybe do like Joe and Obama and drop a billion dollars from the sky to help fund the bounties.
This topic warrants it's own thread because of the political nature of the subject. Dallas has started to remove the Confederate War Memorial that has stood at Piooner Park since 1961. The monument was considered for removal since last year, but there were problems in the decision making process. H...Jump to post
The new VFSG really are not that new. The MD90 used this 'wild' system from the start. I never played with them much when I was in the hangar or line mtc.

No. I’m arguing that mail in voting should not become the method championed by the government. Mail-in voting should be what it has been; how you vote if you anticipate you can’t make it to the polls on Election Day. Oh, you mean like right now? I don't know how you can argue against mail in voting...Jump to post
Then several years into the tanker mess Boeing decided it was time to start offering buyouts to employees. Typically companies do this when they have facing financially difficult times or when a major program is years behind schedule like the tanker was/is.

Really? Divert and be criticized for choosing a nearby civil airport. Or you must land at a military field unless it’s a silk letdown.
Wasn't it also the case that they shut Boeing's center of excellence and experience with tankers? Ah yes, the closure of Boeing BDS operations in Wichita. The original plan was to have the planes flown there in the -2C configuration and finished there. Then the decision was made to close it and hav...Jump to post
As an add-on it’s also possible they may have nixed an APU because of weight or space, in the Tomcat. Remember the F-14 was already very heavy, and adding a luxury item APU/JFS would add not only weight but also $ to a program already over-budget and suffering due to rampant inflation of the dollar...Jump to post
You can read what I write, can’t you? I don’t say there is fraud, I say it provides greater opportunity for fraud. There is a difference.

They could probably practice it in a simulator, Simulators are great for learning cockpit procedures, getting a feel for the aircraft etc. It will not however give a naval aviator the stress of lading on the boat. and do it in real life as needed for refresher.

No, I will not vote by mail. Wide-spread absentee balloting provides way too many opportunities for voter fraud. Further, I would oppose any move to make ballot-by-mail the normal way to do things here.

Thanks LyleLanley. It is interesting to note that the F15 has a JFS, even though its EIS is only 2 years later than the Tomcat. I would have thought that space, being a premium commodity on a flat top, they would have included a JFS on the F14. Perhaps they didn't have the technology then. What wou...Jump to post
Personal and Business travel is highly over-rated. For the sake of the environment, we should learn to interact with most others from our home, through video conferencing.

Very interesting. That would certainly make the T-7A that much more attractive. The main landing gear of the T-7A even looks beefier than what the T-45 has. So maybe just a nose gear change/mod?
