You get it. That's all.  Plus I'm dating a 21 year old so I'm a perv, weird old man.  Seriously, you guys are the best.

You told her you were a pilot and had an airplane and she swooned, right?

When a larger country invades a smaller one that everyone on both sides knows is going to be won by the big guy, the head of the little country has traditionally fled, particularly if they are corrupt.

As to jailing or shutting down critics or opposition parties or potentially dangerous minorities, something similar was done in the U.S. by government leaders in both WWI and WWII.

Zelensky's corruption is only marginal when compared to a lot of world leaders. All in my humble opinion of course.

Historical average and median composite S&P 500 PE ratio suggests to me that the Dow composite index could drop below 25,000 and still be considered fairly valued. However, that low is unlikely before the election. So I picked below 29,000 and almost selected 27,000. I suspect in the next 6 months it could go below 25,000. I would not expect it to stay at its low for very long, wherever that may be.

Lots of rumors flying that Xi is under house arrest and has been removed as leader of the PLA.

This could get interesting.   Don’t expect the US MSM or Big Tech to honestly report on this.

The majority of the news stories I find that cover the rumor are based in India. MSN at least includes this item from India Today:

If I were asked to bet, I'd bet this is mostly wishful thinking of the crowd.

Not a damn thing. He's not campainging. No TV ads, no mailers, no nothing. It's like he fell off the face of the earth after he won the primary. There was a news article about GOP leadership getting after him about this a few weeks ago. Lots of other groups are attacking this opponent, but nothing from him. But honestly, I think he's going to end up another Paul Ryan RINO.

Just saw this article in the WSJ on J.D. Vance vs Tim Ryan:
Ohio Senate Race Pits Awkward Populist vs. Smooth Politico

Hopefully the link works. Basically sounds like Vance doesn't know how to run a campaign and either isn't getting good help or shunning it.

It sounds funny to say I’ve got a hard on for the founders. Truth is, I don’t, however, what I have observed from being a lurker on so many of these boards, is that steinmetz has far too much time on his hands and I don’t mean that to attack him, I state that as the diehard truth. Some time ago I recall he saying POA kicked him off the boat so he came here. Great, another member. Not only does he come here, but he blew up the place with rapid fire thread posting. Now he’s starting a new forum which, yet again, contains more threads than I can shake a stick at of him trying to generate discussion. His persistent nature is noteworthy, but for a neurologist with several ratings as a pilot, seems as though he’d have larger fish to fry than click between pilot forums all day long. No joke when I say that I ALWAYS see him online when I log in here. I mean, I enjoy it too, but seriously?! What a sad life he must lead

Seriously, I wish the two of these lads the best in their latest pursuit to try and mix the bowl another time for what’s already been done. I’m a lurker by nature, I don’t fly much these days, but I’m sure I’ll lurk on their new endeavor from time to time.

I've spent more time in the last few days on this and other forums promoting and defending than I have expended in many years on a subject. Forum birthing pains, I imagine. Bottom line is Peter and I do have to commit a bunch of up-front time to turn a spark into a raging flame, to put it metaphorically. On one hand I have several personal projects that are not progressing because I elected to commit some time to this endeavor. On the other hand I don't like the idea of slacking off and seeing those efforts as going to waste. So I'm guilty as charged of appearing to be pumping up traffic.

I met Peter at the last Oshkosh. We obviously have different personalities although my response to online criticisms or outright insults may have been similar to his when I first got onto Usenet discussion groups around 1988. It took me decades to change the way I handle such things. It's a work in progress.

Try posting the request to the Forum Feedback category. Otherwise I believe I have the technical email contact for the owner somewhere in my contacts list. (Odd that the block may be on this end.)

I get that, I wish them luck, no intent to piss on their parade. basically just saying that I’ll probably wait for it to build before trying to bother participating.

Thanks for the well wishes. Understand your reluctance. My rain gear is a bit worn but can handle some piss. If I'm really lucky I have maybe 30 more years on this mortal coil and see no point in wasting too much of it on trying to please everyone. I get that you probably have a similar philosophy.

It's a technical hassle (with modest $$ cost too) and time consuming to get yet another forum started. I didn't see the point of volunteering to help start yet another aviation forum that replicated what already existed. I think it is different, at least in advertised policies.

We live in a world where people expect instant gratification

Instant gratification takes too long.  ;)

By the way, I verified that we could create an opt-in pilotspin closed subforum on flyersforum if the need arose. But we suspect many are comfortable here (except for Randy recently having access problems.)

I got the email but the link did not work.  Said my email could not be confirmed.

Try logging in now. I did the confirmation on your behalf.

I still lurk over there and occasionally participate as I do here and the purple board. I haven’t noticed them to be any worse then they usually have been but it doesn’t surprise me they removed the posting. Forums don’t like to advertise for other competing forums seems pilot place is the same way. thing is, Steinmetz is probably an alright guy, don’t know haven’t met him, but one thing I’ve noticed is that he’s got way too much time on his hands to constantly be rotating between so many forums, commenting, posting, trying to create his own forums and still work a professional life as he claims. like you need to quit worrying so fking much about who says what on a message board and go out live life. must be a sad sap to live on pilot forums all the time

Hey, what about ME!? Everybody else gets beat up on but I hardly ever get attacked. <sulk> <Sigh - nobody hates me>

I tried to sign up but the confirmation email never came.

It was blocked as spam. Every other spam black-listing site but one says the host IP address we use is not a source of spam. The exception is which does its own thing. uses their spam-checking too. I've filed a request to have our IP address removed from their black-list.

Anyway, Peter should have forwarded you the confirmation link by now.

ah, ok.

I just never would have equated the two.

And when I write "no" you need to realize I sometimes mean "yes".

"fair enough"?

nothing "fair" about it.

not     one     single     thing

I meant "fair enough" as in "typical enough". It is typical to be disingenuous. People are rarely consistent.
