Good Morning.

Today is the day.

I've not actually been paying much attention to the Golden Anniversary of America's greatest achievement. Oh, I am well aware of it, and I wish I had better personal memories of the event, but nevertheless I've not had the time for any of the events going on around this city.

But I'll tell you what - I was struck by a recent comment I heard on the radio.

Unless you've been under a rock, you know that tRumpy tweeted this on Sunday:
So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

Good Morning.

It's pretty obvious that the Mr. Trump is a petulant child. There does seem to be corroboration, and it comes via the Daily Mail (UK).

With the indictment and arrest of Jeffrey Epstein for child sex trafficking, it seems that a lot of rich, powerful, and well-connected people are feeling the heat. There are plenty of names to choose from, but considering one of them is the current occupant of the Oval Office, it's crucial that we look at this web of connections to see just how mafia-like they really are.

Good Morning.

I was skimming my usual websites this morning, and this puffery was at the top of the page. Somehow, I think this tells us all we need to know.

Score a win for the Viper pilot in the battle over which Air Force fourth-generation aircraft brings the heat.

1st Lt. Wade Holmes, an F-16 Fighting Falcon pilot, recently beat his dad, Air Combat Commander Gen. Mike Holmes, an F-15 Eagle pilot, in the game Ace Combat 7, according to a service release.

The two pilots flew their respective aircraft during the hour-long game June 29. The event was live-streamed on Twitch so viewers could watch and call in, asking the pilots questions about flight training.

Ace Combat 7 takes place in a fictional world in which pilots attempt to secure the skies during an air campaign between two sparring rivals. Holmes and Holmes played on an Xbox One system.

Lt. Holmes, who is in the Air National Guard and stationed at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, noted that the realism of the game was better than some training simulators he's used as a pilot. Gen. Holmes, however, pointed out that the purpose was different, and that the hand controls didn't have the same functions. At one point during the game, the two swapped aircraft and flew each others' fighters.

The two discussed topics ranging from what it's like to work with air battle managers in hot zones like the Middle East running air wars to air-to-air combat training and the high G-levels they've sustained in flight.
