    But I am sure you knew that..
    Luftwaffe is also the name for the current German Air force

    It just sounds cool if you're wondering why I chose this name.

    German is fun language, and luftwaffe is a fun word.

    I was going to do a USAF themed profile but the problem was that luftwaffe sounded way cooler than USAF or Air force.

    Twixie if you think you're the first person to inquire about my name you're far from being correct.

    There is certainly a constant though among all the people who have inquired about my name (with just one singular exception).

    They were debating with me on something before and have exhausted all intelligible responses, IOW they became desperate to simply throw some **** at the wall to see if it sticks.

    So what's your excuse for the 60 years or so after that where it was still used for the name of their air force?

    america has long been socialist, subsidizing for profit companies for the "common good," social security (this one should be a giveaway), medicare, national debt of trillions

    like it or not, this is an interdependent world and it's easy to have holier than thou attitude when you've not had to make a living yourself ever, and i'm guessing never fished up a meal either

    a couple of problems with that ideal

    where you might take 3 hours to do a job, another guy might need 6 hours to complete the exact same task

    is he worth the same as you are?

    some people are smarter....more educated and able to do more than others

    should a brain surgeon be paid equally with a ditch digger?

    capitalism recognizes these differences......

    you can get as much as someone is willing to pay you........

    Bard Pitt earns more on one movie, than 100 people will earn in a lifetime

    is that fair? is that right?

    i say sure......and more power to him.......

    chromium: Just because you can't speak German and thus equate "Luftwaffe" to Nazis, doesn't mean that others are unable to speak German.
