Only one thing wrong: the Libs didn’t put Biden in the White House; Trump did.

There are truths in the above. Oil is highly speculative, so an administration touting “anti-oil” rhetoric can influence global markets. However, a president’s ability to unilaterally impact domestic output is limited, and any sweeping, long-term change ... more »

Yes…and no. Government policies absolutely impact the price at the pump. However, per-barrel pricing is set globally. In-between there are other factors (location, refining capabilities, transportation) that affect the domestic cost of fuel. In the grand ... more »

Japan has a national gas subsidy program to keep prices in check. Military bases are not beneficiaries.

Supply chain woes and oil prices result from global economic challenges, not the White House. That being said, the Biden Administration continues to grasp at straws while their own party turns against them. Not saying it would have been significantly ... more »

The goal of Trump’s voter fraud rhetoric was not to overturn the election’s results; it was to maintain the momentum he had built as president. Admitting defeat was not, and has never been, an option for Trump, so while he claimed the election was fraudulent, ... more »

20/20 vision for Naval Flight Officers (NFO), aka the RIO/Bob, has never been a requirement. So glasses have been a part of naval aviation for many decades.

Second lapper seemed to be coasting while looking over his shoulder. Not a great combo at the top of a blind jump. Don’t impede the front runners but ride in a predictable fashion.

The republicans have taken a page out of Biden’s playbook. Joe did very, very little during the 2020 presidential campaign, preferring to let Trump build a case against himself. Over the past 18 months the democrats have epically failed at every turn, ... more »

In ye olden times (when I flew), 20/20 non-corrected vision was required up to a pilot’s winging date. Afterwards “cheaters” could be worn to help sharpen visual acuity, which pays dividends at night behind the boat.

Umm, you may want to do a bit of research. Even back in 1991 carrier-based navy pilots could wear glasses if their vision was correctable to 20/20. But what would I know, I only flew carrier-based navy jets in 1991…

Navy still requires 20/20 up to winging. Afterwards you can wear cheaters…

My wife “coached” me to suppress my comments while watching the film. The flying and flight scenes are incredible (sure, some of the combat maneuvers are questionable), but the portrayal of naval aviators is pure Hollywood. That level of douchbaggery ... more »

Dungey has more in the tank. His second moto form looked more like a practice day than aggressively defending position. Probably doesn’t have Sexton’s pace but he should excel when the series heads East.
