N.J. public unions are enablers of ‘central command’ economy | Letters

Government-employee unions are an economic army devoted to destroying business and industry — unless the business is dependent on government spending.

Here in New Jersey, the unemployment rate is 10.9%. Because of coronavirus safety restrictions, we are living under a central-command economy where the government decides who can be open for business and how they can open their businesses.

No sense of shame stopped the state from raising the gasoline tax 9.3 cents a gallon this month (under a formula triggered by a previously approved road-funding mechanism) during an economic downturn that this government caused. This does not bother the government unions one bit. No matter how bad the economy is, they will get their money.

The government and the media incited the masses with the fear of coronavirus. I think the danger is being exaggerated for political purposes. Through media propaganda and the promise of more compensation from taxpayers,

DVIDS – News – Navy Recruiting Command Creates Region Central


Story by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Zachary S. Eshleman

MILLINGTON, Tenn. – Navy Recruiting Command (NRC) formally established Region Central Command in a ceremony here Oct 1. This new command is a byproduct of the transformation that is fundamentally changing the recruiting command structure and business model.

”When transformation first started, the idea was to flatten NRC and downsize,” said Rear Adm. Dennis Velez, Commander, Navy Recruiting Command. “It was quickly realized that in order to be as efficient as possible, and to help our commanding officers we needed to not only maintain Region West and Region East, but to move billets around in order to establish Region Central as well. This vision is being realized today.”

During the initial phase of transformation, NRC quickly discovered that Navy Recruiting Districts (NRDs) and Navy Recruiting Talent Acquisition Groups (NTAGs) needed to report to an intermediate regional command, so they

Air Education and Training Command aims to keep new airmen coming despite pandemic

Six months after the nation began to lock down to slow the spread of coronavirus, Air Education and Training Command is starting to roll back some of the emergency moves it made to keep basic training working.

But, AETC commander Lt. Gen. Brad Webb cautioned in a Sept. 11 interview, the Air Force is still watching the spread of the pandemic, and is ready to put preventative measures back in place if necessary.

“It’s not over,” Webb said. “We’re still doing [some preventive measures] today. But COVID did not bring [airman] production to its knees.”

While large parts of the nation began to shut down earlier this year as the COVID-19 pandemic spread, that wasn’t an option for AETC, Webb said. A shutdown of the AETC pipeline, would deal the Air Force a manpower blow that would take years from which to recover.

“It is amazing to see the charts

Air Force Space Command Tapped America’s ‘Other’ Test Pilot School To Start Up A Space Force Flight Test Team

Last February, Air Force Reservists from the 14th Test Squadron, which does operational testing and evaluation of space and cyber systems, embarked on a three-week Space Test course with a view to creating a cadre of flight test personnel that can help lead the way for the recently formed Space Force.

You’d expect a developmental/operational flight test course including classroom instruction, formation flights, workload tests, and formation testing to take place at the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base in California or at the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland. Instead, the Air Force chose to send students to a civilian program at the National Test Pilot School (NTPS).
