3rd favorite chopper behind the CH-53 Sea Sallion and Huey gunship
I love the Chinook.
I would prefer to walk.
I always go running outside like a child when one flies over. I used to live near an AF base where they would constantly fly overhead. Reminds me of my youth.
A buddy of mine who was 82nd Airborne said I should have joined him in Afg and I could see lots more. Lol!
With Russia reminding the Scots exactly how close they really are to Russia on the eve of WWIII, I wonder if Scotland will quietly rethink their independence movement.
If those asshole Russians bomb The Balvenie Distillery I will PERSONALLY stab Putin in the throat.
On Michigans ban on Race-based admission programs
If you don’t agree with this decision, you need to sit down and think real hard about your values, because you are, by definition, a racist.
"Affirmative Action" says in it’s essence that even though you don’t meet the requirements of some institution, they have to let you in because you have more melanin in your skin. We’ll lower the bar for you, because you can’t cross it on your own.
Racial diversity is not a valid goal, it’s racism. TRUE racial diversity is a by-product of a society that provides equal opportunity to all, which our current govt-run education system does not provide. If you want to say (and rightly so) that certain black Americans come from a place where education is not valued and it’s more difficult to get a good college-admission-worthy education (or whatever the case is), I think that’s a good argument. But don’t force the admitting organization to lower their standards.
RAISE UP THE PEOPLE WHO NEED IT.
If you give people school choice then they have no one to blame if they can’t get into college, except themselves.
According to the US Census, spending per student per year was roughly $10k. Give that money BACK to the people and let THEM decide what school they want to spend it on. I GUARANTEE that privately run schools would be falling all over themselves to get your voucher. Quality of classes would go up, bussing would be available, lunch quality would go up, everything. Because the free market works.
Affirmative Action only serves to lower the overall standards based on a heart-felt desire to help oppressed minorities. Instead of allowing the oppression to continue, and saying “well, that sucks, but here’s a degree anyway.” How about we stop the oppression???
I’d go into work naked with only my gun belt on. What would you do?
Buy a Jag XJL Supercharged.
Meanwhile, at the Federal Reserve.
The more money we circulate the wealthier people get.
The idiots decided they couldn’t spend the economy out of trouble. Now they think they can PRINT the economy out of trouble!
Why not? It worked for The Weimar Republic!
Wow that is depressing.
okay but is that michelle’s fault for pushing for healtheir lunches or is it school districts’ faults for cutting corner by cutting calories but not making lunch any healthier?
let’s look into it.
^^^Agreed. She is trying. School boards aren’t.
This illustrates a lot of what is wrong with American awareness. Schools have less than a dollar to spend on food per student and the right wing blog that posted this probably doesn’t give a fuck that school nutritional programs being cut leads to this, they just wanted to take any opportunity possible to slam the opposition.
School districts…also run by government. (And unions…)
Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists … I repeat: what went on up there was domestic terrorism.
