Good rant

www.snipeme.com/archive.php?year=2008&rant=pussy_america

has a great rant about the pussification of america.

When I see a kid who acts like the f’ng world owes him something, I know good and damn well it’s because he’s been locked in a f’ng bubble his whole damn life cuz mommy and daddy were too afraid to ever let him get hurt on his own, make his own freaking mistakes, etc. So yeah, the generation entering the workforce does indeed have a problem and that problem is AGEISM. Ageist over-protective stupidity that’s permeated our society has created a generation of FREAKING PUSSIES!

Read the whole thing.  I first started this blog to document the effect of the pussification of America on the US Sailor.

Why the Navy should be strong

War is highly competitive; we are trying to train people to endure the hardships and strain of war, and we would be doing ourselves and our country a disservice to adopt measures which would soften the fiber of the men in uniform.

                                      Admiral Robert B. Carney

ADM Carney was the CNO under Pres. Eisenhower, and the Navy Cross, the Navy’s second highest award for valor.

PT! Mmm Good!

I back to participating with FEP, aka dancing bears.  I passed my PT test, but the score was low, thnk C  instead of B +.  On nights before PT, I brush up on cadences, in case I get voluntold.  The Navy is no longer swaggering, rum swilling bad boys.  We are kinder and gentler.  So some of the old school cadences are heavily modified, if not banned so as not to hurt people’s feelings.  My current favorite is “Sally Goes Downtown”.  It involves a red dress and sailors being sailors.  And for anyone wondering the purpose of a formation it is to “quickly and efficiently move sailors or equipmnet from Point A to Point B.”

PT

A certain slacking Seaman(not SN Gumby) missed PT this morning.  Back in the good old days, he would have been running around an outbuilding with a large pipe over his head.  No paperwork, and when he cried or fell over, he would have been dismissed.  Not in the kinder, gentler Navy(haugh, spit).  Instead, I had to do a counseling form, and then PT with him after working hours.  No smoking, like the Army does, where the SSG kicks up their heels and calls out exercises.  The PO1 issuing said punishment has to do it with the one being punished.  So I got to PT twice in one day.  I think I might get devious on these a-holes.  We can use my way, or go Senior Chief’s(E-8 ) way.
