  We have a new Wall, it is CRAFTS, Thank you [BirdsNest] for your suggestion.



   WAN2  From social philosopher Eric Hoffer's "The True Believer" (1951 ):

There is in us a tendency to locate the shaping forces of our existence outside ourselves. Success and failure are unavoidably related in our minds with the state of things around us. Hence it is that people with a sense of fulfillment think it a good world and would like to conserve it as it is, while the frustrated favor radical change. The tendency to look for all causes outside ourselves persists even when it is clear that our state of being is the product of personal qualities such as ability, character, appearance, health and so on. "If anything ail a man," says Thoreau, "so that he does not perform his functions, if he has a pain in his bowels even . . . he forthwith sets about reforming the world."

The lesson? Beware True Believers...

   MeiDei  Many, many years ago I worked with a man who never failed to tell me: "beware of the do-gooders" I think that fits.

   WAN2  F-16 Drones! Nerds fighting wars from their parent's basements in their pajamas. No guilt. No blame. Deadly. Pray your house isn't targeted for using too much energy...

   Safetydude  Not quite, "Nerds fighting wars from their parents' basement"...most of them are experienced, rated officers.

If the AF can go after the bad guys without risking the lives of our members, go for it!

   WAN2  I am thinking 10 years down the road when capable pilots hunker down on their secluded farms instead of taking orders from presidents in aprons.

   Martinsh  Why is NO ONE TALKING about the fellow from DOJ calling a staff member from Rep. Issa's committee. The DOJ fellow thought he was talking with a staff member from the Democrat side and said he had some "leaks" he was going to give to certain "chosen MSM reporter". This is big. THE DOJ collaborating with the Democrats on the committee. This should be all over the news.

   Lonestar Jack  For the same reason no one comments on Rep Elijah Cummings efforts to get information about some Republicans from the IRS.
He is a two faced phony Liberal who depends on his race to get in his biased mantra.

   Donnaclaire  I've become increasingly and aggressively snarky these days, due to our "Outlaw-in-Chief" getting away with anything he darned well pleases. Further, the people who support him - Democrats in particular - seem to be oblivious to this or...they don't care. I've learned this 'snarkiness' from the best in the business - the left/libs/Dems - who never miss an opportunity to trash those who don't agree with them. Until this dictator/despot/tyrant leaves office, I will only get worse - so please bear with me!

   Gerty  Vent away!!

You've come to the right place, Donnaclaire. You'll find agreement, sympathy and even opposition--but you will be heard. Welcome!

   Wrightwinger  And quietly, quietly, in the shadows... Just wait a bit if you think getting a decent job is hard now... And if you think your representatives have your best interests at heart...
