It’s voluntary at the moment. They *do* have a pilot shortage. I think it’s for any retired pilot under the age of 60. It’s also opened for all the branches of the military, which I think was a different Executive Order. That has less direct reasons. I remember when the Reservists were called to serve overseas by George W. It kind of shocked me at the time because until then, I assumed the Reserve was exclusively for domestic security. These days, restarting the draft program wouldn’t surprise me. Of course, most of the people calling for it are conveniently too old to do it themselves. Oh well.

Answer: Nope. Some communities want to handle their own affairs instead of police living outside of their neighborhoods doing so, and report to the outside authorities to their progress in improving their communities, but that won’t happen because 2nd amendment rights don’t extend to non-white groups. Also, that’s a community decided temporary measure some are proposing _not_ an authoritarian imposed “solution”. But I didn’t read the blog. I don’t like reading things that require me to get chemotherapy when I’m done.

I hope I’m wrong but I don’t think so. The USA pulling out of UNESCO is not about money. It’s not about anti-semitism. This is a map of UNESCO World Heritage properties. If you are a member of UNESCO, you agree not to bomb them, invade them, take minerals in their soil, build casinos and hotels on them, etc. But if only we had a President who was ALSO a general contractor and real estate guy? What’s better than a World Heritage site? How about a World Heritage site with a fantastic hotel on it! Now that’s better. Oh, we can’t bomb that place because it’s UNESCO protected? Hah, we’re not in your club now. Drop ‘em!

I did my genes the other week finally and I’ve been matching up with my extensive genealogy research. No Genghis Khan in me. I’m from the British rulers back to Alfred the Great, which was a bit of a intellectual for 800 AD. British did things in a two class way . You had intellectual leaders and then the grunts did the conquistadoring Actually, wait, that’s Spain with the conquistadors Same idea though. Grunts do grunt work. Rah rah rape pillage while rulers rule in comfort.

It’s sorta taught. But I’ll give an example: In finance, you want everything to balance out to zero. So, what’s credits and debits? What’s assets and liabilities? Is your mortgage an asset or a liability? What about your car? When you get a credit card that’s a debt, yes. But why does it feel like free money? Woefully under prepared. Easy to say “parent should teach” but most adults don’t understand these things very well.
