Clearly, you’d need to figure out a modified (folding) wing design, add more robust landing gear and possibly some additional retrofit, but we traveled back and forth to the Moon in the 1960-70’s (some forty years ago) and rode around on its surface with dune buggies. If we can engineer that, we should be able to make the Warthog navy-capable. Of course, the USMC is in love with the F-35B, which is an interesting toy with a unit cost (and maintenance expense) nearly 10X the cost of a Warthog.
GENIUS – yes, the Arizona Free Militia (with Senator McSally, a former Warthog driver and squadron CO) could use them. Now, there is no Arizona Free Militia that I’m aware of, I just pulled the name out of the air — the very same air that an A-10 flies through. It may strain the concept of “Keep and Bear Arms”, but you’re onto something. Talk about liberal heads exploding…

The Warthog unit cost was $18.8 million each when they were in active production. The “Invisible” F-35, that they want to replace it with, which is wholly unsuited for close support, currently costs between $94 million (F-35A) and $122 million (F-35B). Now, if you were a Beltway bandit with an insatiable appetite for cash, which one would you have the retired USAF generals on your payroll advocate for?
Exactly. The economy swings in two directions (bear and bull markets) and the current situation is one where things regarding trade, where we were looted by the Chinese and “globalists” is being remedied to their profound dismay. So we’re doing well. We’re exporting oil, we’re expanding new markets for both supply and demand (outside of the Chinese network to some extent), unemployment is so low that it’s essentially non-existent on a national scale. MAGA – and it dismays the donkeys so much.
Fredd, advocate for crack whores responds to WSF – What, Fool?!!?? And leave those poor, down trodden crack whores who depend on your money to sustain their chosen lifestyles to their own devices? How mean spirited! How low can anybody stoop? So, just forget about all of that selfish bastard behavior of yours and dig into your pocket (dig real DEEP, Fool, and I mean DEEEEEEEP!), these crack whores are depending on you.
WSF is a selfish, heartless bastard for not wanting his income redistributed to crack whores and Fredd called him on it. In a larger sense, WSF is also Islamophobic for not wanting Islam to take over the nation, but I, personally, think that he’d make a really good Mullah. He’d need to get a few more wives, but the potential is there in Colorado, close at hand.
There are two types of government money – that which has been earned (contractually) and contributed to that is paid out in the form of a pension. You can lump Social Security and MediCare into that if you will, but both of those programs have been stretched to the limit, money robbed by Congress, etc. The other is “welfare” that is delivered, unearned – by Santa and his elves. The unearned government money pours out in the billions/trillions and it buys votes.
See “IMPEACH!” above. Yes indeed, and the lawyers, trained at Satan’s Vatican work tirelessly to find a way to remove President Trump and replace him with a globalist (illuminati) type of socialist that will wreck the USA once and for all. Obama was a useful dupe, Hillary would have been a worthy successor, alas.
It’s those deplorables, clinging to God and guns in fly-over country who wrecked the scheme in 2016. The map says it all. If only the elites could figure a way to wipe out the middle of the country and still get them to work and pay taxes, there would be an order to things. They really need to eliminate the electoral college.
Social Justice on the Net
The progressive Left lost a lot of ground but they do control most of the big search engines and social media. In time a balance will be formed, but for now, we’re their enemies and they react accordingly.
