    A Deeply Fractured US

    In 10-15 years you'll see a major spike in crime and poverty in the US.

    Royal B.C. Museum to be imminently gutted in the name of 'decolonization'

    The way I see it, is we give individuals too much power when they are the minority. A simple stupid tweet with XXX number of likes and shares automatically means people (as in everyone) is outraged for whatever topic. Ignore them and the problem goes away.

    Royal B.C. Museum to be imminently gutted in the name of 'decolonization'

    When you have an undiagnosed mental illness, it's hard to stop. The problem is no-one has the moral fortitude to stop their non sense.

    Medical Release ( merged )

    Injury or not, no one should be doing anything that's causing them pain. We aren't at war and things can go undone. Doing more with less is what's getting us into personnel issues.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Still nothing to address the retention issues, housing and cost of living. RCAF manning is falling apart and some trades are not recoverable, but hey, we will have new buildings and shiny things that will just sit there collecting dust.

    Medical Release ( merged )

    Pushing through whatever injuries you have won't get the result you are looking for. Medical releases are not guaranteed and not as easy as people think, it's not like you just ask for one. MELs and TCATs stating you can't perform your job due to your injuries is the first step. You could also...

    Jerry Amernic: The downfall of Canada’s military

    The title could very well be 'The Downfall of Canada'.

    Change of Command drill question / passing of the Colours and Swagger (Pace) stick

    Don’t forget needing a 4-6 ship for a flyby.

    CF-188 Hornet, Canada's jet fighter

    Agreed. Top gun pilots just lose control and eject, apparently.

    Top Gun 2

    None of that was real, Top Gun had more realism.

    Don't go to messes.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    That's a bold claim for college officer cadets. They are not yet professionals and not even close to being called a soldier. There is a marginal and insignificant difference between a RMC cadet and your average college student.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Harassment isn't unique to RMC, this kind of crap happens in every college and university across Canada.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I think the biggest question is, what ratio of male to women GOFOs would be the acceptable standard? If 25% of all officer recruits are women, according to the report, then wouldn't a ratio of 10 to 1 be normal if you factor in attrition and competence? Just ballparking it.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Ensure people who are not white men are given preferential treatment for promotion into the GOFO ranks? Forced succession planning?

    We don’t need a union to protect the bottom feeders, we do that already.

    D.I.E. cis-het white men bun fight [Split from:SWO badge]

    Agreed. Lets also post people to bases where their diversity represents the local area. Oh crap, it'll be all white folk again.

    F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    I thought it was Spanish? Either way it’s the same one with two ejections, yet still flying.

    What is Finland doing with their old F-18s? Asking for a friend.

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    Likely both as each family situation is different. My guess is anyone close enough to pension will just go IR or anyone over the hump will just retire instead of being financially crippled. Dark times indeed.
