What Is This Bullshit

 It seems that the US Navy has put out a new training video, telling sailors about the proper use of personal pronouns.  I shit you not.  Click on the link if you would like.  But be prepared to suppress the gag reflex.

I've never been a sailor-man, but I have great respect for those folks who take grey ships in harms way. I had always thought that the mission of the Navy was to defeat our nation's enemies, not make junior enlisted sailors feel loved or respected.

When I was a troop leader in the black-boot Army, I didn't give a screaming shit what the junior enlisted thought of me.  They earned my respect by being good soldiers and I reflected the respect that they had earned.  

It appears to me that the Navy is going overboard with this bullshit, and I suspect that the Chinese are laughing their asses off.

Meanwhile, they cant keep aircraft in the sky, cant keep rust off the ships or even stop hitting each other, other ships or landmasses. Guess we can see why the fuck why that all keeps happening. Not good for what's supposed to be a highly mobile show of force on a good day or a forward point of attack on a bad.

That's about all I can come up with this BS. SMH
