Harrier vertical take-off/landing jet aircraft. Handy for Marines assaulting a foe. Clear a small area in the jungle and there's the landing point; no lengthy runway needed. Ship is an LPH, Landing Platform Helicopter. An amphibious assault ship. Carried many helicopters and these Harriers. A large number of troops could be carried along with their equipment and supplies to keep the troops fighting for a sustained period.
No jobs. High unemployment rates in California. Early 1990s. My home state is declining rapidly. The horrors of diversity and multiculturalism were obvious to the aware lower socioeconomic classes. Only job I could find was prancing in that HOT costume on the sidewalk in front of the A&W fast-food joint. 100-degree heat and 20-degrees hotter inside the furry suit. I WAS A PROFESSIONAL FURRY!!!

A Ne Dark Age arrives for the masses when the NWO takes control. How can we fight the immense, awesome power of that elite class, their corporate system and the governmental systems that are in an unholy alliance with?
