Obama’s Navy

Two snippets from the Navy Times:

Navy Nixes Urinals On New Aircraft Carriers

[…] Gerald R. Ford-class carriers will have gender-neutral berthing and heads without urinals, differentiating them from all previous carriers.

Target areas announced for SEAL diversity

The latest marketing campaign to recruit more minorities and diversify the Navy’s special warfare community will focus on Southern California and the mid-Atlantic, and it may include metropolitan areas with heavy concentrations of Arabs, Persians and Hispanics.

It’s time to re-word Anchors Aweigh, the old Navy fight song, for the age of Obama:

Anchors Away, comrades

Anchors Away

Farewell to manly urinals

We now sit down to pee

Obama is our leader

We’re all El-Bee-Gee-Tee

 Our ships are fueled with algae

And manned by crews diverse

No more sexist sea bags

Our gear’s stuffed in a purse

Anchors Away, comrades

Anchors Away

Barry signed a treaty

And gave away the sea

But we’ll still ride the ocean’s foam

As long as it’s in sight of home

It should be clearly understood

We’re now a force for global good

Anchors Away

  1. Oh yeah! That is what we need. Arabs and Persians in Seal Team Six. How about some pregnant women too? This is shameful!

    Are they going to have an Islamic quota?

      Thanks, BP. Diversi-Navy, and combat effectiveness be damned.

      • Under this guy in the WH; only he gets to pull the trigger. He shot Bin Laden, so he told us, he decides who to target with his drones, etc…

        Is the Nobel Peace Prize like the Heismann? Reggie Bush had to send his Heismann back, does Obama need to send his Nobel back–along with the prize money?

    That’s it for the day. Via White House Dossier.

    Bob, I’m not going to say what I’m thinking. Despite the many things we’ve shared, the level of obscenity would force you to edit, reject it, or completely ban me from here.

    Third one this morning from CH, and I told Bob over here that if I said what I was thinking, he’d have to edit, reject it, or ban me from his site.

    Recruiting had quotas for minorities in 1992 when I was a recruiter. There is nothing new about this. Taking out the urinals makes changing berthings easier as it standardizes things. If you sit down to pee because there is no urinal, it is because you want to.

    • Bob Mack says:

      I dunno, JONES. Never saw many traditional urinals when I was in. We used to piss down bamboo tubes & dump in a sawn-off oil drum while the dung beetles clacked away below. I don’t see how the feminization/homosexualization of the military is doing anything but screwing up combat effectiveness, which, after all, is the whole point of having a military in the first place. And, if you think quotas for special ops units is a good thing, then I’m going to have to respectfully disagree. Because in order to meet quotas, training will necessarily have to be relaxed and standards for completing it lowered. Which in the end puts missions & personnel, not to mention the country, at risk.

  9. J Jones says:

    I did not say it quotas were a good thing, I said that they are not new. The Army did have them and probably still has them.
    Having spent 13 years on Sea Duty and been at two different commands when the transition to mixed gender crews was implemented, it is cheaper and more efficient to standardize the heads than to re-fit them. When we went through the mods to get a mixed gender crew, all of the piping for the heads had to be changed to accommodate the new Sailors and their sanitary needs. That left us with empty racks and underutilized space while we waited for the females to arrive. If everything is the same, personnel can be moved to different berthing as the ratio of males to females fluctuates. Space for people on a ship is an afterthought and is very limited. Anything that makes the use of it more efficient is a good idea in my book.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Actually, I agree with ya — my post being intended as satire. What I’m really opposed to is a mixed gender/openly homosexual military. I can see no benefit to it, other than fulfilling a liberal’s wet-dream. On the other hand, I’m admittedly a dinosaur. My army time was way, way before any such thing as quotas, and I went 16 months without seeing a round-eye woman. The only quota was in a specified number of warm bodies needed to make up monthly shortfalls. The day I enlisted in January of ’66, I saw ’em draft guys right into the Marine Corps because the quota hadn’t been met. The newly minted Marines were, needless to say, not happy.

      BTW, I can relate to utilization of space aboard a ship. I traveled on the USNS Buckner, NYC to Bremerhaven, Germany the year before I volunteered for the RVN. Racks were stacked 5 high, & I was in a bottom one. Had to be the last one to sack out, otherwise I had an hour or so of stinking feet being stuck in my face. Ah, those were the days!
