Re: Drug enforcement policy -mine-in the 80's (reply)
Our paths may have passed.  I worked extensively with the tech ops folks from FBI and DEA in SF in the 80s and with DEA off and on from 78 to 82.  Sounds like you had a hell of a career!

Re: I am 90% receving IU as well. Thinking about trying to get 100% P&T (reply)
You are getting paid at the 100% rate and the ID card indicates P&T (you need to confirm that info with the VA), so, applying for 100% scheduler would buy you nothing unless you qualified for SMC.  And..yes, there is always a...

Where are you going to go with the passport?  You go to the Caribbean and you come back with ZIKA.  You go to the EU and you get shot, stabbed or blown up by a Muslim terrorist.  You go to Costa Rica and you come back with malaria.  You...

Re: Charging the cop in the Baltimore case with Murder (reply)
I agree with El Pistolero.  Gomer, you are making far ranging unsupported statements in your opening sentence.  There are rotten apples in law enforcement (just like any other profession).  They are usually identified and fired or...

Re: "Life is like a Box of Chololate" (reply)

Re: Charging the cop in the Baltimore case with Murder (reply)
The problem with this case is that officers were charged with crimes that the prosecution knew it could never obtain a conviction on.  That is wrong.  Anytime a cop kills someone and there is media coverage (which is normally biased),...

Re: IU C&P Experts thought and anyone else (reply)
The above does not (IMHO) make you unemployable but it does limit your employment, but the rater will have all the add'l information that you submitted.  It may lead to IU.  Good luck and let us know how it goes!
