    Just an aside: The calling name "snowflakes" originated to describe liberat college "kids" who massed to drive out any of their speaking enemies. Like a Genghis Kahn horde, they were quite successful and frightful to the people in the Towers of Power. Then "snowflakes" marched outside their realms into private locations of speaker rallies, welcoming as allies ninja-clothed Malatov fire bomb throwers. Delicate snowflakes hell, these are people who bully any peoples they are sure won't just start kicking their butts. Conservatives majorly remain peaceful and successfully turned away from their lawful, rights as bullies victims usually do. There is zero Law Enforcement applying laws meant to allow "free expression of peaceful ideas. LE is not committed to the right to free speech of the law obedient people, but give too wide berth to law violating bullies, violent trespassers. Where's the lesson about obeying/respecting the law?

        That's some high quality posting right there. Did it make sense? :dunno: Was it a fun ride? Absolutely.

            Lots of people take this outside of its context. He was on a carrier that was returning home, so the carrier task force had accomplished its mission. Those that insist that somehow it meant that the entire war was won somehow are quite biased.

              Considering I was standing approximately 50 feet in front of him when this pic was taken, you are 100% correct sir. I'd spent all night supervising my duty section getting everything ready for his visit. First POTUS I'd ever seen in person. It was something I'll never forget.

                This place sucks. But it doesn't suck more than any other board. It's the least suckiest. So by default it's the best. This place is great.

                  The only problem I have with the board is EVERY thread devolves into a pissing match between the same few posters and the entire subject of the thread is ignored so some keyboard jockeys can feel better about themselves. Its the same thing over and over in every thread. But unfortunately its like that on every board lately.

                    So a banner like this is on every carrier when they come home?

                      No of course not, only when they have completed a significant operation and the president is visiting. The president had nothing to do with the sign, and most military are very happy to see the commander in chief. Oh another chief!!!!

                          Thanks for your service, when I was younger aviation was my hobby, so I know a little about air operations.

                            So you are saying the same to the other posters? The one that started this discussion? And it is not about politics but about carrier operations not that it is a sport either.

                            Yes. I've actually moderated quite a few posts on politics.

                            That was not the question, but let's let it go it is game time.

                            Just a quick review, but it seems your warning should've been directed at one or two other posters. My 2 cents.

                            I have no problem with the comment, but your observation was what I was referring to, and to think that this issue is only political is incorrect by my reasoning,
                            Thanks.

                            I rarely post and most likely I'm a bit older than most on the board. I'll admit that I come to this board less and less as time goes on. I go to message boards to get bits of information I can't get elsewhere, and to hear other's opinions about the team. However, it seems like every single thread seems to end up with posters calling each other out as negators or sunshine pumpers or repeated posts that certain members of our coaching staff are not very good. I can appreciate the opinion and often agree, but when when you post the same thing in virtually every thread it feels a lot like your wife nagging the heck out of you. It's getting more and more difficult to find the tidbits of information or insightful opinions among the bashing and name calling.
