Submarines: Fresh Breaths of Reality

A civilian, New London artist has been arrested for allegedly vandalizing Groton's landmark (USS Nautilus Memorial sign “Submarine Capital of the World”) sign on I-95 with obscentities. Think of it, an artist who will someday apply for (another) federal/state grant to use our tax dollars for his livelihood attacking the spirit of sacrifice that allows his lazy hide to feed from public coffers. The miscreant has been released on a $3,500 bond until his Nov. 2nd court date.

Proposed: Restrict this artist from receiving public grant monies for a period equivalent to the minimum service requirement of a submariner, or as long as it would take one man to prime the hull of a submarine by hand, whichever he prefers.

Chairman of House Armed Services Committee predicts increase in submarine construction

What's wrong with that assessment?
1) The DOD does not want to increase submarine construction until 2012, or later (so, it will not happen beforehand).

2) House Armed Services Committee Chairman Duncan Hunter, R-CA, who made the prediction, is assuming Republicans hold on to the House and Senate. Otherwise, a bow-tie man/woman will become the new head of the House Armed Services Committee and the navy will be lucky to maintain the submarine construction schedule it now has.

I think he should go and serve coffee and donuts to the service memembers at the USO camp in Afghanistan for a year. With a placard around his neck of a photgraph of what he did. I think that would be fitting justice.

Sonarman, I would not disagree.
