Does the active duty and Air National Guard/reserve screen officers for mental defect?
Witnes | 21 Dec 2011 | Racehorse

Posted on 12/21/2011 3:28:19 PM PST by Racehorse

I was just getting my hair cut at the Lackland AFB (now something called a joint base) when this guy in a leather flight jacket . . . probably from the National Guard or the Air Force reserves next door . . . challenges his femsle barber . . . "Do you smoke?"

This pissy officer explains, barbers smoke and he can't stand the smell of tobacco smoke on their breath as they cut his hair.

But, he can smell and enjoy the scent of JP-4.

This flying officer needs to be identified and removed from flying status . . . or removed from training and discharged.

You’re kidding me, right?

Msybe a waste of bandwitdh, I agree.

First time I’ve seen anything from a block of retired (Reserve or Regular) officers was an admonish to back off, be less threatening, and be more civil.

Because . . . “just brings out your immaturity.”

Bullshit.

Okay, I don’t know you, never served with you, never served under any doctrine you authored.

I have no idea who you are and whast gives your screen nsme the pretense the leeway to advocate anything.

“I’d rather smell JP-4 than the stench of a cigarette on someone’s breath six inches from my face.”


You are definitely NOT part of The Greatest Generation. You wouldn’t have survived the war because of the smell of the butts.

Garlic is what turns me off.

Kimchi sucks too, especially when it’s combined with the morning after stench of heavy boozing. I can hack it, I just have my druthers, and no, I’m not 80 years old.

If anyone knew anybody who worked for thst officer and was willing to make a complaint agsinst him . . . he’d be gone.

If that's what you think, you obviously never served a day in uniform. Zippers are notorious for being dicks...also, some of the most fun folks to hang around with.

And far from "condoning" it, I say it is what it is.

And you, sir, are quite the dick for suggesting ending someone's career for being honest.

The question is did you have the balls to stick up for the barber in person or did you have to bring it here because you were too gelded to do that?

I hope you are not serving in our military. Foolish thread & your bite is sadly all gummy.

Well, then, I don’t have a clue which version of the Bible you are reading.

You come off like a loud mouthed punk rather than a retired NCO. You have sworn on the thread, which is an FR no-no.

You have insulted people, some of whom are my friends here.

And I certainly don’t want any more information on your private parts or what remains of them.

And you have the audacity to claim you are representing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Get real, pal.

There are planes at Davis-Monahan that would take less work to fix than you need.

Straighten up and fly right. Otherwise, the Boss up there is going to give you the “look”.

Didn’t realize how badly the other guy’s ego was damaged, until the reserves stsrted posting and a cartoon mocking me showed up.

All that help, did it help?

I’m not laughing nor mocking nor gloating.

Excuse me? You are the rude person here. Do not ever think you can compare yourself to a person like TigersEye. His posts are way beyond your bite. Now find something to get the bean out of your "head". You lack sense. Even common horse sense! Merry Christmas to you.

Thank you, I work hard to rescue them from fools who race them to death etc. This is the most asinine thread I have seen in a long time. I think somebody has been hitting the eggnog heavy.

The admin mods are the last ones you need to be concerned with.

It’s the Boss upstairs you purportedly represent, with your tagline.

I am pointing out to you, as a kindness, you need to file a different flight plan.

Capiche?

Why the heck would snybody csre what you think?

By reading the posts to you, Racehorse I can say nobody cares about your silly thread. Spell check is your friend, maybe your only friend. You are not witty & have a great lack of manners. You should be named goatface as you insult real racehorses! Enjoy yourself, you are a laughingstock. TE doesn't write for me. But he sure posts better then you do.
