        Trivia note; After the Battle of Flamborough Head, in which Jones, commanding the Bonhomme Richard, captured the HMS Serapis, the captain of the later, Richard Pearson , was knighted for protecting the convoy that was the objective of the whole business.

        Upon hearing this, Jones said, “A knight? I’d like to meet him at sea again; the next time, I’ll make him a lord!”

        Actually, seeing all the stupid things he’s done since 2008, I think it’s his entire goal to make sure that whoever is unfortunate enough to get that job will get blamed for all of it.

      • October 2, 2016 at 11:09 pm

        Miz P, patched inner tubes would be a huge upgrade over the Haitian “rafts” that floated up on S.FL shores, most actually dumped overboard from mother ships a few miles out with 50-100 “people” onboard.

        Enough drowned in the process that some charter outfits in the area advertised “Shark Fishing Trip…Free Chum!” Says something about those dregs that nobody thought it was bad taste at all. And those filthy, lazy, sub-human scum are responsible for one of my former towns on Lake Okeechobee, Belle Glade, earning the nickname “Aids Capital of the World”. The decent Dominican people who share the island of Hispaniola with Haiti won’t even let them cross the line under penalty of death. And under the guise of “saving” this pestilence, the Clinton Foundation skimmed multi-millions from the FOUR BILLION American tax dollars flushed down that sewer.

        Bitter? Why yes I am, you noticed. I am a mostly gentle soul who believes in live and let live, but I’ve got a bunch more stories and reasons why this place and its “people” should have been allowed to all be swallowed up by the floods and quakes that God rained down trying to exterminate them.

    According to the linked article this picture/incident was from 2012. Still Obama’s watch, and still stupid, although I suspect all the sailors involved are in favor of ladies keeping their breasts.

    Just another indicator of what a total sham this person is/was as President of the United States. It will take many years of a serious presidency (which I do not see coming in the next four years) to even begin to reverse the damage BHO and his regine have done.

      Well, I can definitely say that sailors are ALWAYS in charge of ladies keeping their breasts…and hopefully showing them off on shore leave as well.

      But this whole pink thing is way outta hand. I mean I’m all for breast cancer research and prevention…I mean I help my wife with a breast exam every chance I get—-but really?

      I wonder how much money goes to breast cancer versus prostate or testicular cancer?

      Yup…this is why

      2) Stopped using the phrase BOHICA (Bend over here it comes again) to describe some shit detail, job, or mission that was directed by some idiot up the chain of command-too many sailors liked it.
      3) the old phrase that in a submarine 100 men go on deployment and 50 couples return is now probably more true than ever.
      4) can’t call female bosun’s mates bull dykes…it’s now a badge of honor.

    The Soviet Union purged their military of non politically correct officers prior to WW2. Many consider the Soviets initial major losses to be due to the incompetent politically correct officers that ran the Soviet military then.
    Political Commissars were more important than theWW1 experienced officers during the purge.
    The Soviets had to create a new defense of Mother Russia propaganda campaign to gain support of the people.
