Love it and not to toot my own horn but I predicted it when he got the nomination. Had a running battle with a neighbor sporting a Hillary sign! H/she, whatever still won't talk to me! Like I care......LOL

What does that have to do with the Blue Angels (involuntarily) switching to the Rhino?

Former Navy, '85-'89. RTC San Diego, AA, learned on the A-7. I get why the Angels want to keep their older Hornets. Maybe if the DoD would get off its butt about certifying 3D printed replacement parts…

I fear the day (in 2075) when they have to switch to the F-35C. That turkey is a whole other disaster.

Nothing really! Just voicing my disapproval of the way Democrats have hamstrung our military! No worries, mate, we are on the same page!

Kind of reach to do so in this context though, no?

I mean, do you incorporate that into every conversation you're a part of?

No, not really, just when I see some article that promotes or degrades our military! Just a old Guardsman crew chief hoping for someone to make this country great again. If I offend anyone, my apopoliges.
