    6 Jan 2020 U.S. Events (Split from A Deeply Fractured US)

    A friend of mine had to leave an ERT and they moved him to the Int side of the house in his agency. When I saw him about three months after the move and asked him how it was going, his response was" I was never scared in my last job, now what I see scares the shite out of me."

    Yeah but, let's insert some reality here. Impeachment is not an option. Today is the 13th, the inauguration is a week away. There are mechanisms to do all kinds of things between now and next Wednesday morning; does anybody expect them to be other than partisan "headline grabbing" feel good...

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    Many Navy folks I know were full of shyte, so a couple of extra days holding it shouldn't cause any real problems.:p

    Good for you, and take my advice, never, ever contemplate starting again.

    Meanwhile back at the perpetually offended tent/Infidel tattoo questions

    I read your post ,and then went for a smoke to contemplate how to reply. I have been a smoker for almost 45 years. I have stopped (not quit) three times in my life, the latest for almost 8 years, Circumstances have lead me to start smoking again. I am not proud of it. My wife is 18 years...

    I think your auto-correct has once again, phuqued you. And it re-affirms my conviction that the machines aren't quite ready to take over. Skynet "All systems Launch.

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    "Individual cabins." That is just crazy wrong! How will any Navy Officer learn his tradecraft without being stuffed in a JOUT locker. Without hot bunking NCM's will be left to their own designs. The horror, the horror.

    FORCE test, COVID and PERs

    We (Ottawa NCR) were scheduled to re-start FORCE tests next month, and an allocation for L1's and timings was distributed. Not sure what the latest provincial regulations mean in terms of implications.

    That sweatshirt, (original, in the bag), is going to be worth a lot of money to collectors in 2050.

    A party that espoused this kind of centrist ideology, and wasn't prepared to take a side, would get absolutely destroyed on mainstream media and social media. Radicals from both sides would dominate the airwaves, aided and abetted by a moribund and economically challenged media, searching for...

    Well that's no stretch at all. Just like the Church Lady explained that Santa was just an anagram for Satan, everybody knows that an anagram for trade unionists is "inundates riots" :cool:

    Maybe he should have had kafir tattooed on his arm. Then he could have gone with the carbine. Kafir - Wikipedia And at least he had the tattoo done voluntarily.

    Pension Indexing

    Your pt 6 above would seem to sp his contention, as the caveat "not" is not included in the descriptor. Maybe a cut and paste bobo

    6 Jan 2020 U.S. Events (Split from A Deeply Fractured US)

    Seems like the rhetoric on here, (and I have been guilty of it too), is beginning to mirror what has happened in the U.S. where accusation is responded to by even more sensational accusation, claims are rebutted by counter-claims, and each side believes in their own "truths." For the U.S. I am...

    Most new Order of Canada appointees are white men, despite diversity-boosting efforts

    There is some precedent for this, again, right from the top guy. As the years progressed, Amin's behaviour became more erratic, unpredictable, and strident. After the United Kingdom broke off all diplomatic relations with his regime in 1977, Amin declared that he had defeated the British, and...
