    When a poster correctly ID'd the car as a Tesla, I should have smacked my own head. I was living where Tesla is made up to 2 months back. i saw he was correct instantly.

    My youngest grandson, I pray will let this be a lesson to him. He was up to my last hearing of him, aiming to be a pilot in the military. This may spin his head to also work at Silicon valley.

    My middle son was a USArmy officer (airborne) and decided he didn't want the career. The point to re-up or get out came and he got out. He is doing better than he would have done in the military, but it certainly helped him.

    There are some good outcomes from being a military pilot. I have a couple of friends from childhood that were military pilots and went on to be airline pilots and have retired nicely.

    Does any former military pilot start out at age 20 making over $200,000 in his first year of employment?

    But no matter what the youngest of my daughters two sons does, we all want him to be happy. I am a pilot and believe it made me very happy, though not for pay.

    You need to start at $100K/year just to live reasonably in silicon valley.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    He tops that by far for his beginning income. Frankly he should not have agreed to buy his parents home and should have aimed much higher.

    His parents are both very well versed Republicans so my hope is that also applies to their son.

    Yeah, based on the photo and all that you’ve said, I wouldn’t get the hopes too high.

    I am therefor miles from your brand of thinking. I shall ask him to learn his actual political views. But you would not bother asking since you believe you know better about him than his grandfather.
