Unless he takes a wrong turn at Spain, and you end up on the moon....Mmmm, at some point, seriously stopped......
Well sure... It he's interested in flying a "bus" for our wonderful commercial airline industry... "which would collapse if we stopped propping it up with tax dollars"... yea... I suppose he's "employable".
Just saying... after piloting a space shuttle... would anyone really want to fly a buss? when they could go after a much more lucrative and exciting career as a Politician?
Hey, 40k in your freezer... No problem... your a POLITICIAN!
Tax payer funded HOOKERS... No problem... your a POLITICIAN!
Intern BJ's under your desk... No problem... your a POLITICIAN!
Buy some worthless desert property... fund a new interstate right along side... sell it for a BUNDLE... No problem... your a POLITICIAN!
