Recently the U.S. Navy came up with their latest recruiting slogan, "America's Navy: a global force for good."
Apparently most sailors don't like it. I don't either.
“This bumper-sticker jingle would look good on a flower-toting cart, but when an [aircraft carrier] that displaces over 100,000 tons pulls up off your coast, generally the thought is, ‘Oh crap, the U.S. Navy is here,’” said Information Specialist 1st Class (SW/AW) Joshua Forman, of the 2nd Fleet Military Intelligence Operations Center.
Other people disliked it because it sounded too over the top: “It sounds like a catchphrase for a bunch of superheroes,” said Chief Aviation Machinist’s Mate (AW) Randy Whitney, just one of the sailors who invoked the 1970s cartoon classic “Super Friends.”
“Do they plan on moving all the Navy’s Pentagon offices to the Hall of Justice?” Whitney asked.
If they really want to recruit, these slogans would get better results.
"America's Navy: we kill those scum-bag pirates."
"America's Navy: play 'Halo' with real bombs and missiles!"
"America's Navy: hookers are really cheap in Hong Kong."
"America's Navy: SEALS do whatever the hell they want to do!"
"America's Navy: we've still got our balls...even the gals."
Images of Navy personnel delivering aid to earthquake victims in Haiti or tsunami victims in Indonesia do not motivate young people to join the Navy...they motivate them to join the Peace Corps.
The Glorious Leader, Imam Obama, was unable to make it to the Boy Scouts of America Centennial Jamboree. He was busy appearing on The View ( cackling hens on Prozac ) and some fund raising events ( even commies need some walking around money ). But Obama did video tape a message that was played for the young Scouts...who roundly booed him. Gee! You think Barry knew the Scouts would not be a friendly audience? You think the Scouts really wanted Barry there? After all, what do Barry and the Scouts have in common?
Scouts are Trustworthy: they are honest and tell the truth.
Obama's lies are to numerous to count, from "...And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country" ( August 11, 2010 ) to "No one who makes under $250,000 a year will see their taxes go up", referring to Obamacare ( recent "adjustments" by the Congressional Budget Office regarding the long term cost of Obamacare show Obama's statement to be a lie ).
Scouts are Loyal: A Scout is true to his family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and nation.
Who is Obama loyal too? Unions, ACORN, SEIU and other special interests groups. Islam? Marx? He is certainly not loyal to his nation after his infamous 'world apology tour'; his practice of Sol Olinsky's teachings ( the ends justify the means ); his willingness to cram unwanted Obamacare down the throats of Americans; his desire to see Islamic terrorists treated as run-of-the-mill criminals worthy of civil rights usually reserved for American citizens; his unwillingness to effectively deal with border security and dream of adding 15 million new undocumented Democrats to the Dem's voting rolls.
A Scout is Obedient.
Obama? Certainly not obedient to the constitution since it's a document of "negative rights" don't you know? And it's a living document, meaning the constitution means whatever the elite want it to mean. Nor to the will of the American people, who in numerous polls said they didn't want Obamacare but had it shoved up their wazoo anyway.
A Scout is Thrifty.
Obama? In eighteen months the Grand Imam has increased the national debt over $3 trillion and counting.
President? Obama is not qualified to be a Boy Scout...nor would they have him.
In Toronto a "priest" of the Anglican Church decided the body of Christ was a suitable doggy treat and fed a dog a communion wafer during a church service. The Rev. Marguerite Rea later apologized but said "We're all God's creatures. If a dog goes into a church, he's entitled to every service that's offered, including spiritual nourishment."
Really? Is confession next? Was Fido worried about the state of his immortal soul? Communion? Marriage? Questioned about the incident afterword, Fido said, "Body of Christ? What's Christ? I thought it was a Baconz. Oh yeah, I pissed on the ficus plant...hope nobody minds. Props to my homey's in the pound! Fight the power!"
Meanwhile, in New York, American taxpayers dropped a cool $7.3 million to build a playground for uber-rich crumb crunchers in lower Manhattan.
"The playground has been five years in the making, a result of tons of research in progressive learning theory and child-development research..."
When will these over-educated morons figure out that kids don't need any of their stinking 'learning theory'. Kids can make a playground out of anything. Give a kid a stick and some navel lint and they'll make a space ship, or an Internet business or a snare to catch Sponge Bob. It's about imagination you twits! But it gets even worse.
"Play is proctored and interaction fostered by a staff of city workers trained as “play associates.”
Seriously? Proctored and fostered? By paid city employees? No wonder New York is going broke. Liberals believe every single moment of our lives have to be 'proctored and fostered'. Nothing like Big Nanny hovering over you from womb to tomb making sure you don't engage in any "non-progressive learning theory."
New York city parks commissioner Adrian Benepe said, "From this playground will come the next generation of architects and engineers. Maybe the next mayor or City Council speaker.”
Well, maybe. But on the other hand maybe this multi-million dollar jungle jim will produce the next generation of New York City over educated morons that will continue their parents propensity to spend millions of our tax dollars to "direct" children's play.
And finally, I leave you with this.
One in five Californians say they need mental health care.
To that I can only say...NO SHIT!
