    Hey Bullet

    From what I read, the J-20 really doesn't have an engine, could this possibly be reverse "Star Wars"? In that I mean; could the Chinese be doing a head fake and trying to get us to go bankrupt overspending now? You know in a reverse old Soviet era out spending game?

    Actress Glenn Close (sp?) was in the videos unknowingly. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-31749_162-20027478-10391698.html

    Wheeler found dead in a Del. Landfill? USMA Grad and Yale

    The latest twist on this case. I think the FBI should step in at this point. http://abcnews.go.com/US/police-recover-jack-wheelers-cell-phone-neighbors-house/story?id=12565551

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    Right, Captain Honors is a casualty of the backside, the Military didn't just "Outlaw": homophobic speech, fraternization and [possibly] dereliction of duty last week. Platitudes such as this are what cause ramifications. Again, you can't have it both ways. A wise person, using common...

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    I'm sorry if you didn't fully understand the ramifications of a policy that you supported. Yes I realize you calculate each word here and it's hard to nail you down on a quotabel statement but there have been a few: You can't say something like that [above] and then be mad that a senior...

    It's tough the Navy has this policy ain't it? This is what happens when you try to social engineer a highly technical and macho filled warrior world, with "feel good" policies. This is exactly what some were claiming would happen when these new "PC" policies went into effect, of which, you...

    Let's not play semantics, you know what language I'm talking about, it's the exact language Captain Honors used in his video :thumb: In 2006 and 2007, it was "NOT" acceptable to use any of the language Captain Honors used, it was just as offensive to men and women then. On a side note...

    PIMA, add in that a successful Carrier Skipper [usually] has his ticket punched for Flag Officer.

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    I doubt anyone here is trying to solve the problem, I think some are just trying to get their arms around the double standard issue Lucky. What's your opinion?

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    I know my answer, I wanted your opinion. They are all equally hard to take out of context today since the world has shifted to PC. Ever listen to an HBO special and hear a black comedian use the N word? Complete double standard and that's why every situation dictates what speech is used...

    To put this in perspective / context of the real world, and not just the Navy, this ESPN TV sports announcer was fired today for calling a colleague "sweet baby" http://www.lostlettermen.com/current-news-ron-franklin-let-go-by-espn/ BTW, he's in his sixties and it looks like his career is...

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    Mongo, after that long post, can I ask you a simple question...as I usually respect your view, and you usually have an inside track on what the upper brass do/does, any you seem to be condoning the actions of Captain Honors; is it OK (for anyone) to use politically incorrect language like...

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    I have an idea but will hold off till I find out a few details on the "usual suspects" supporting this moron. It does defy logic on the surface, but I suspect we'll find out in short order...and...it smells like politics to me. :thumbdown:

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    Most know a great leader is not a great drinkin buddy. You can't be both; and then sprinkle in the slurs, that's over the top. I don't know why some keep putting up the "good old boy network" supporting him; that's the last thing the Navy needs now. Cries of systemic bigotry, and double...

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    Right, it sounds like "fraternization" with locker room talk. You might be on to something, maybe the Navy (and all the branches for that matter) drop the PC unwritten rules of decorum, and allow "Drill Instructor" like talk to all subordinates. Women included too, I'm sure I could site...

    Another career bites the dust due to stupidity

    A simple member here would be banned in a heartbeat for directing language like that (above or on the video's) toward another member, banned. ADM Roughhead just said a few weeks ago, that the Navy was ready to transition in the repeal of DADT post haste, yet he has a promoted Senior Commander...
