You typically spend the first year working out the problems from the previous owner(s).  After that it usually levels out.

We spent about 10% of the purchase price in the first year to get the bird up to snuff, since then, she's been a very solid bird. But, we also pretty much do everything that is recommended at each annual. I can't even remember a time me or a partner has had to scrub a flight due to MX issues.

Well it did go through the wet market in my opinion, but it originated in the lab looks like. Probably somebody sold a lab animal to the wet market.

I feel quite confident that it was intentionally spread.
With the hatred and violence with which the fucking democrat commies
have fought against the truth coming out, you already know they are covering up something terrible.

And if you aren't vaccinated, well, good luck.  COVID sounds really nasty to me, and very random.
And good luck with your experimental unapproved vaccine.

It is really nasty for some people. But it's not totally random. Front line doctors have determined a pattern. Mostly people under 50 with no underlying conditions (especially obesity) seem to do fine. Over 50 and underlying conditions are the ones that get sick. Needing hospitalization is what signals likely death. Early treatment avoids hospitalization and hence death, but one of the biggest blunders in this whole thing was the lack of early treatment.

We were told in the beginning by the CDC and the WHO to stay home and ride it out. Do not come in for treatment because we have no treatment. This was not true. We always had supportive treatments like steroids, quercetin, zinc, hydroxychloroquin, vitamin D (it was determined early on that low D was associated with mortality). Many of these early treatments were debunked because they didn't work in hospitalized patients.

But the doctors actually dealing with patients found they did work, if you gave them early. They were baffled by the expert guidance to do nothing. We treat flu early, we treat any disease that could lead to pulmonary dysfunction early, we don't wait until you are so out of breath you come to the ER in desperation. By then it's most likely too late.

But this reaction was in part due to the recent Ebola scare. So some practitioners were loathe to tell covid patients to come in early, for fear of spreading the disease. In retrospect this turned out to be terrible advice and led to many avoidable deaths.

There are exceptions of course, you can find young apparently healthy people succumb to it, but as a rule, we do know who covid targets and who it generally doesn't hurt much. It's not totally random.

Two elderly women were out driving in a large car. Being short, like many elderly woman are, neither of them could barely see over the dashboard.
As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The top light was red, but they just drove straight on through it.
The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself, “I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light.”
After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection, and this time the light was red again, and again they went right through.
This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red, but was really concerned that she was losing it.
She was getting really nervous now, and decided to pay very close attention to the road and sat up straighter to see what was going on
At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red, and they sailed right on through it.
She turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred, did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row! You could have killed us.”
Mildred turned to her and said, “Oh Shit, am I driving?

This is the kind of thing we need.  Brad Little has been such a disappointment.

No doubt since I don't rigidly tout the Conservative party line lots of people will pile on and call me names.  What the fuck ever.
No, we don't call you names because you don't tout the Conservative party lines.  We call you names because you're a douche.

I did say except for voting Democrat. But you can still support something and vote the other way. I usually vote for the Republican even though I support the opposition on some issues. For example back in 2016 or thereabouts Trump made a statement in support of civil asset forfeiture which I vehemently oppose but I voted for him anyway. I wouldn’t want to be accused of supporting civil asset forfeiture just because I voted for Trump.
To be fair, that’s probably because you knew the democrats were far worse on civil asset forfeiture, and you only had a binary choice for president.

As for Steingar’s militia canard, the problem that we all see is that his position mirrors what four out of nine Supreme Court justices said in Heller, and what anti-gun zealots often use to claim that individuals don’t have the RKBA.

For YEARS Steingar has used the militia argument to imply that ordinary citizens don’t have a RKBA even though he claims he’s happy that bearing arms isn’t currently being infringed. For YEARS I’ve referred him to the intellectual study of that prefatory clause, and for YEARS he’s utterly ignored the analysis put forth by Scalia in Heller.

So for YEARS either:

A.  He truly doesn’t believe it, just like Biden who says he supports the 2A;

B.  He is anti-intellectual and refuses to examine the militia issue that HE himself constantly raises, despite being presented with evidence in the form of historical examination of the issue in Heller; or

C.  He’s just being a fucking troll once again. 

If I said I was pro-life, but worked for years to support Planned Parenthood, pushed to pass laws making abortion as free and easy as buying eye drops at Walgreens, and pushed for public funding of abortion clinics, you would tell me that I’m not pro-life at all. I think it’s the same with the 2A.

He wants to double the federal budget to $8.2 Trillion dollars by 2031.  But at least he doesn't say mean things in a tweet.

They have adopted the full on cancel-censorship of the authoritarian left. Actually you can’t even call them the left anymore, they’re just authoritarian, as bad as the worst right wing regimes, just suppressing any and all who dissent from the approved groupthink. A true ideological leftist would never allow billionaire corporations like Facebook, Twitter and Amazon to censor speech. The so-called “left” are traitors to their own ideals.

 But, as always, we are a free and open forum and do not censor anyone.

Of course! I’m not asking you to censor yourselves, just expressing my opinion. I don’t actually want any of you to stop being assholes. It’s one reason this forum is so much better than PoA.

We The People are the militia, knucklehead. As the man said, it's self-evident."

Exactly! Our forefathers were smart enough to realize that an armed citizenship is the worlds biggest and best army. As long as average Americans have the ability to bear arms, it would be suicidal for any foreign power to put boots on our shores.

THAT, right there, is the biggest reason to preserve 2A. Yes, personal defense is good, but defense of our country is the reason the second amendment was put into place.

But that's just it.  Originalists say we're supposed to read it as written.  They have a point, trying to do telepathy on long dead legislators on why they wrote things they way they did is pure folly.  It is written with a preamble about a militia.

Hey look, I honestly don't give a shit.  I research genetics, not your precious 38 caliber security blankets.  I'll never support anyone taking your weapons aways from you, there are some damn good reasons for folks owning them.  And I will never in my life support restricting someone's rights because it makes someone else feel better.  That's bullshit of the purest nature.  If firearms actually presented a clear danger to the non-firearm  owning public I'd feel differently, but they don't and neither do I. If the US firearm community had the brains Odin gave tardigrades they'd amend the Constitution and get rid of the militia clause. Make it nice and crystal.   The really sad thing is there is critical mass to do this. The firearm community is vast, well funded and emotionally driven.  It is a real tragedy that this hasn't happened already.

I think that the thing to remember is that the Constitution is there to outline restrictions on the government, not to grant rights to the people.  Under that assumption, the government is restricted from denying the people from their God-given right to bear arms.
