“plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”
The US is very dependent on automation and the digital age. With this mindset, they are killing dogfight skills and will rely totally on its advance array of BVR/Beyond Visual Range missile systems therefore no need for close encounter.
Its like Vietnam all over again. The system are very new at the time and said the old founders of the missile age. No more dogfights. One by one planes and pilots were dropping from the skies and no sooner they began to reevaluate knife fights. Top Gun was born.
The F22 and F35 systems are very new. It has not really engage in true combat. Most of the points scored by the US fighters are on online games and flight simulators.
The Russian Flanker fighter is the most agile, maneuverable jet ever existed. I learned the Pugachev-cobra move back in the early 1990’s and lucky enough to find a photo of it. It like seeing a car go a 90 degree turn like the batmobile. There are rumors about Indian-US wargames with Su27 versus F22 and the Suchoi always beating the Raptors. That is trouble and this machines are 3rd ColdWar relics and much advance 4th Flanker derivatives of Su30’s series.
The Russian are marching in Ukraine. So as its communist ally China in the far east with its copied Flankers. Lucky for the Philippines we have no air force to fight these birds and have politicians doing toastmaster speeches all time.
The above quote means…
“The more things change, the more they stay the same”
They run away from home at a young age, frightened and abused. Alone in the streets they need to survive and the fastest easiest way is to sell their own body. Its the oldest profession in the world. Whether they like it because of getting used to the glamor, the easy money, the fancy lifestyle, some still wish for an escape of that kind of life.
Tracy Lords tried to recover from that image but the stain of her past career as a porn star was very deep, trying to be a real actress is next to impossible and recognition is a hard sell.
Most men and the elite society are very cruel to these women. We have to remember they are human and deserve respect too. But there will be a few kind of Magdalene type who will turn the 180 degree to change.
All they need is the chance. Be kind.
I have nothing against the Chinese. I know a little of big companies buying small one but about a Chinese company buying an Italian tire brand Pirelli is a good thing and a bad one.
I am not a business type reader nor knows about stocks or bull season what ever they say on the business side. But Chinese practices are not good to the economies of some countries. One practice they do, especially in construction projects, they will import Chinese workers from, guess where else, mainland China. Reported in the news, it happened here in the Philippines Southern Luzon in Batangas.
I thought those movies of Chinese immigrants stored on container vans are fictions but they have ways of illegally sending people from their homeland and work as cheap labors on plants around the globe. Sometime ago, I read in NewYork TImes, Italian shoes are being replaced by fake Chinese copies. Well it killed the shoe industry here Marikina in the Philippines. We have plenty of chinese fake branded shoes here and its not a secret since its sold in the open.
My colleague attended a product demo to test network cables and the test gadget can detect fake coppers in the network cables. The good quality ones are pure copper. The fakes are coated with copper and the core is aluminum. And guess where it come from. You guest it right. Some warehouse were raided here in Laguna, Philippines and found substandard construction materials to be used in the Yolanda/Haiyan affected areas. Yeah, same source.
If China could fake copper wires, they could also fake old maps too. China claims the whole SCS/South China Sea. But people please read history. China has no strong navy to support this. Its the reason why they were invaded by the British. The colonial powers then are Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany and later the USA. From what I saw in the news, Spain do claim those area in SCS and the Philippines have names on those islets.
Going back to the Pirelli’s take over, well, it won’t be long when Chinese engineers will work there and get the technology.
I have nothing against the Chinese people. Its the quality and the clandestine invasion they do to other countries and mine.
Wow forgot to sign this one. A ballpoint drawing.
Just notice using a Pilot ballpen is really better. Blot is minimal.
There are no single battle cry for these leftist group when they gather and march to the streets, jamming an already congested traffic, shouting, ranting all about the governments ill activities. Its always the current issue. Like Joint Military Exercises with the Allied USA, Against Terrorism, Electric Power shortages, Pollution, People Power, Marcos regime style of governance and right now the Fallen-44. They will gather and show their strength.
My question is. Where do they get the money?
The nation needs jobs. These leftist group have all the answers. So why not they create work? Work is what people need. It create economic security for the working people. When the people have jobs, they have food on the table, clothing, and education. As a bonus, an internet connection. Why not?
The money they spend on these rallies are wasted.
We must challenge these leftist groups to give us a better alternative by proving they could give jobs for the people. Since they could feed the marchers all day, and this involves lots of money, why not create jobs instead?
Do you agree?
