when is Cash Patel going to be questioned by the GJ?
Drove one of those double handed from NYC to Seattle many years ago. 56 hours. Great ride. Those fold down seats let us go 4 on/4 off all the way across. Just stopped for gas and pancakes. The Sambo's in Montana still had it's full-on racist storyboard above the counter of the little black kid turning the tiger into butter.AMC Ambassador. My grandfather (on my father's side) only ever drove those. Wonderfull cars! Too big for anywhere but northern New Jersey I think...

He had "Cat fish whisker" curb feelers on it so he wouldn't scuff the white walls....
I thought we were way past this.the question of whether Trump declassified any of the documents he took
No, but I bet you knew that already!Shit man it must be confusing in the UK with about 10+ prime ministers currently walking the streets …do Boris and Liz still retain the title of PM ?
I thought we were way past this.
With regards to the military, it is common to refer to a retired officer by their most recently held rank.
If they weren't a General then holding onto their rank after retirement is nothing but pretension.
There is little that is sadder than an old man wanting to be addressed as "Captain" or "Major". All it does is emphasize the fact they were passed over.
Until the politics change. Then it’s AMF.Good people however, putting in a lot of organizational energy into the Club for free.
When they leave the armed forces they are allowed to choose to “keep” the rank or revert to Mr, Mrs, etc. My dad didn‘t keep his rank when he left the RN which I thought strange at the time but now I think was probably the right move.In Britain it used to be (may still be) quite normal for retired officers to be addressed by their last rank. Yacht Club committees, for example, were littered with a bunch of disused Major this, Captain that, and Brigadier whatever. Good people however, putting in a lot of organizational energy into the Club for free.
Right so what about if the legions of ex service mentioned above are filing an affidavit ? Do they call themselves Colonel Custer sawmill operator or colonel Custer (ret) sawmill operator ? .My Army Col bud doesn't seem to mind being called "Col" tho he's never suggested it. He loves folks knowing he was an airborne ranger however judging by his truck stickers.
