Two prayers....

God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

The Submarine Force gets another black eye...

Well this one hits kinda close to home:
Why Are Sailors on Navy Submarines Cheating on Tests?

Short answer: Because they can.

Correct answer: They thought they could get away with it and didn't. Therefore anyone caught should be shitcanned.

I really don't care if this is a reflection of our culture-at-large, the military ain't CIVLANT and they adhere to different standards. If you don't believe that one go peruse the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) for starters. Even getting a severe sunburn can land you in trouble under the right circumstances. So forget what goes on outside in the "real/civilian" world, You're in Uncle Sam's Canoe Club now and have to live according to the standards of that culture. End of story.

If the damned exams have gotten so ridiculous that they're almost impossible to pass then let enough sailors flunk the damned things and sooner or later the little light will go on in somebody and the exams will be adjusted accordingly. Yep, there will be a lot of careers ruined before that happens but we're talking about an occupational field that requires you die on demand if the need arises. So integrity and honesty should be given primacy.

It falls under the heading of "A man has to do what a man has to do". I realize thats a somewhat dated sentiment but there ya go.
