  1. Thanks for the observation Bains. You and Garneau really have this all under control; I can sleep better tonight. Seriously, are there any prerequisites to being a Government Minister in our country?

  2. Judy and Glen; I remember when I learned that you were taking on this site and thinking that you would do a great job of herding this interesting group of cats. You didn't disappoint and I greatly appreciate how you've not only kept it alive, but helped it to thrive as arguably the best aviation forum on the net. Cheers! Jeff

  6. I've been to Venezuela a few times, my limited conversational exchanges with the locals are reminiscent of the quotes I see from deicer. Different thread, but I'm rooting for Biden. Canada and the US need a belly full of what they seem to be asking for. My guess is, that just like university jocks on Saturday night at the pub, they will cry when the handcuffs come out.... put another way, when the bill comes due. Just name me one time when these creatures didn't fill their cake holes with bacon and run for the exit when the waiter demanded payment... when they had to actually pay for

  7. Why do you insinuate that I am against free speech? Just because I subscribe to a different view doesn't mean that I don't subscribe to the tenets of decency. I have always tried to make the conversation about the issues, providing links to back up my point of view. However, as you see, I do push back when pushed. If you don't like that, not my problem. If anything, you have more threads and posts than I do subscribing to your point of view. Is that because you are trying to stifle alternate views?

  9. A lot of us kissed it (non aviation forum that is)good by quite some time ago. I hope, if someone does take up the reins of the AEF that they kill the Non Aviation Discussion Forum and go back to the roots of the AEF (Aviation, Aerospace etc.) but no politics allowed.

  13. Sorry to hear this Judy. I sure wish I could take it on, but I just don't think my saturated old noggin can manage such new wizardry any more. I'm sorry I couldn't have been more useful for you. I know I fouled things by not communicating... that was one of the biggest challenges for me with my ....illness. Sometimes you're the bug, and sometimes you're the windshield. [grin] But we all end up the same. lol... :)\ Cheers Judy, ....I'm glad to have met you. Mitch

As you know I am generally opposed to the waste of funds in this space exploration thing so just pushing a few buttons for readers here Just my opinion but I would be pro space exploration if we, as earth people, had the blue marble up to speed as far as the environment went but I am rather embarrassed to admit to my grand children that I was, (not any more), of the attitude that things were going well here. I guess now that the "spurs have been hung up" I have more time to see just how bad this beautiful place has bec

  19. Yes the video is edited to cut unrelated material and show an undeniable pattern Of abnormal behaviour and very probable depraved intentions towards very young innocent children. Biden’s actions Speak for themselves (regardless of editing which very virtually any video of anything from any source has) and so does your refusal to acknowledge my question about you trusting him alone with your young daughter imo. That you are ok with that sort of behavior as long as it’s perpetrated by someone with your political leanings takes away every ounce of your moral outrage at others that fill page after

  20. 100+ WestJet Pilots (Mainline & Swoop) participated in a union information picket @ Terminal 3 today regarding the unreasonable transfer of flying from WestJet to Swoop. “Despite the serious situation the Canadian airline industry is in, WestJet pilots cannot stand by while WestJet and Swoop management use the cover of the Covid-19 pandemic to outsource mainline jobs to low-cost Swoop.” - Airline Pilots Association International — at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

  21. I admit, I do use the recycle boxes. But guess what. Another fraud. At least I can understand the idea of less plastic in the environment instead of the scam about carbon which is not a real pollutant(except as promoted by frauds). But the lefties like de-icer that want your money have hijacked the environmental movement for their own political purposes and are following through with frauds like the plastic recycling on a monumental scale. All for your money. De-icer and the other parasites likes getting carbon tax rebate benefits from higher income people. Now you know the real reason for the

  22. Probably not all greasy but enough of them are to make it accurate as a general statement. Which is why people should vote based on policy rather than fraudulent attempts to only show one side as greasy and pretend(or ignore) that the other is not and then use it as a way to try to give that as a reason to vote or not vote for a party/person.

  23. I have a Beagle that doesn't give a f*&% what shade of grey those ground squirrels are. And, he could care less whether it's a red squirrel or a chipmunk. Nor does he care how big they are or what they had for breakfast.... or even if they had breakfast. They are simply varmints to be engaged on sight. When you're smart enough to understand the analogy, there may be hope for getting some sh&^ done. Until then, enjoy the show.

  27. 1.) That's the US website and is intended for Americans only. 2.) 24-72 hours is not rapid testing and this test requires a lab. 3.) PCR tests have been shown to have between 50-90% false positive results - less than useful. Actual "rapid testing" will come from a company such as Sona Nanotech. Their test gives results in 15 minutes and is point-of-care (no shipping/lab/external equipment needed). This test is lateral flow immunochromatographic not PCR. It is 90% accurate rather than 90% wrong. https://sonanano.com/sona-nanotech-covid-19-ag-rapid-test-device/#wra

  28. As you read this, reflect on the notion (and my long standing assertion) that liberals will never be willing to pay for what they say they want. That's why they have zero credibility with me and I consider all of their finger wagging deliberate fraud and fakery. The notion of "we will tax the 1% to pay for this" is a long standing worn out lie continually recycled by serial liars who don't even believe it themselves. In fact, they are the first to flee when the bill comes. Pay your damn bills: https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/bill-maher-california-super-high-taxes Now take

  31. Actually, I am not particularly worried about your name calling(which you not surprisingly initiated with your endless calls of us being racist, evil supporters. I just use the schizophrenia example to show what a fraud you are. The article about harming mentally disabled people by carelessly throwing around that term is a classic one used by the Pretend-I-Care left. There may be some justification of the idea overall, but it is used by them in an article to show how caring they are and then we see the same people throw the term out at their political opponents, which I assume, harms the menta

  34. Listen, I once travelled from TLV and they required passengers to drop off baggage the night before at a downtown depot for security reasons. If you want to travel these days, going to a test site for a truly rapid test, getting your boarding pass or travel document stamped, is no big deal. BTW, who remembers when we needed to be vaccinated for a variety of diseases before being allowed into certain countries. Last night, I dug up my little yellow vaccination booklet. I was vaccinated for smallpox, yellow fever, typhoid and cholera. Many countries won't allow you in without a visa, which

  35. Indeed it does. It seems to me that your influence has turned deicer into a more obnoxious troll than the creature I previously placed on ignore. The quote is pure BS.... demonstrably wrong theologically, and manifestly wrong scripturally. I could easily pick it apart line by line but the time and effort to do that would be totally wasted. It seems the less he understands something the more firmly he believes it. Ironically, only the ignorance, arrogance and hypocrisy is scriptural and supported by prophecy. He's not asking a question or seeking an answer, simply trying to

  36. That is another fraudulent lie. Both sides are doing what? Covering up the biggest political scandal of the election. No coverage of the whole Biden emails and meeting with the Ukrainians which was the whole reason for the impeachment which is turning out to prove Trump right in what he did. Yet your simple response is 'Both sides are doing it'. The mainstream media is covering up this huge potential scandal while they leap on anything to do with Trump. And the Washington Post has the gall to try and tell us that democracy Dies in Darkness when they are the darkness in terms of media cove

They have never had to work for anything, it has all just been there.

  38. People really need to get out more. Some of the worst atrocities are foisted on victims by members of their own race. Military service really should become compulsory and everyone who votes should be forced to see it and smell it... it would eliminate massive amounts of BS from key board warriors and replace it with a bit of experience and compassion. In all of this, I have become convinced that true compassion is born of adversity and what my grandfather used to call "the smell of hard times." In particular, the brand of compassion portrayed by liberals stands as pathetic and fak

  40. What do you think De-icer? Is what they describe in the previous post justified because Trump is a threat. If you believe that, then you and those who think like you truly are the threat, no matter what excuses you have. This is a dark period in the history of mainstream media objectivity. And the left is responsible for it.

It’s going to be a very popular A/C for AC. Easily more comfortable than either the 737 or A320. I have some observations made from the trips. Pros Very comfortable J class seats. Large 18 inch displays using the latest Panasonic x3 system.
