Where to start, the problem is nearly everywhere. Today I walked down my dock and saw a large strange discoloration of the water. It did not appear to be an oil spill, possibly some runoff from a farm or such. But I had not seen this in more than 20 years and I thought I would contact someone at the State who was the agent for this area. I am not someone whop calls and reports every noise, wisp of smoke or such, but this was significant and I was just wanting to get a bit of information. So, the lady answered the phone for the state government office, Black woman, who could not seem to process a simple question, I would like to speak to a real person, not an answering machine, someone responsible for water quality issues in my specific county. Nope, got sent to another person, asked her for her name, very hesitantly she said Porche, do you have a last name, How can i help you she replied, same question as to the earlier woman, beep- answering machine, no one home, no idea when they will be. I called back, same black woman, she told me that on Friday many people are not in, I said so what do the citizens do when they have an issue on Friday, beep she transferred me to a Hispanic woman, hardly understandable, no help, just more frustration,
I like most of you have seen and heard all the officials after a terrorist incident, IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SUSPICIOUS, CALL US, YEAH, TRY GETTING THRU TO A PERSON WHO GIVES A DAMN, AND OR WHO IS EVEN THERE.
Yes, I am sure I come across as a know everything kind of man, that seems to happen if you happen to know quite a bit, you are bashed , oh well, the facts are, our government and our corporations are filled with incompetent people, people who not only are poorly trained, but who do not have any interest in doing a good job, they are there part of the day, mostly emailing or texting friends or talking to them, but doing what they were hired to do, fat chance of this.
This is also true in our Washington DC Federal offices at the capitol, Paul Ryan is a joke, as is Mitch McConnell, Pelosi, Schumer, as are most Democrats and Republicans, they are not working at the job they are being paid to perform for the American people, this too is a damn shame.
The U.S. NAVY, I have thought that what I knew relating to the continuing decay of NAVY leadership, training, issues, policies, qualifications of personnel was bad, but it is several levels worse than just bad. IT IS A MESS.
The ship collisions are a direct result of failed leadership, leadership that has suffered for many years as the Administrations have ignored the Armed Forces, and political leaders have infiltrated the services just as they have in our Universities, schools, museums, and government with evil agendas to push.
This decay is everywhere, the NAVY just allowed a statement a day ago, see below,
WASHINGTON – The majority of ships operating in the U.S. Navy’s Seventh Fleet, where two destroyers have been involved in fatal collisions since June, weren’t certified to conduct basic operations at sea related to war-fighting, according to U.S. Navy records.
As of late June, eight of the 11 cruisers and destroyers in the Seventh Fleet, and their crew members, weren’t certified by the U.S. Navy to conduct “mobility seamanship,” or basic steering of the ship, according to U.S. Navy records provided to two House Armed Services subcommittees.
The Navy also said that seven of those ships had expired training certification in the areas of cruise missile defense and surface warfare, which test a crew’s ability to defend a ship or to conduct attacks.
The USS Fitzgerald collided with a Philippine-flagged vessel on June 17, killing seven crew members. The USS John McCain collided with a Liberian-flagged vessel Aug. 21, killing 10 sailors. Neither the Fitzgerald nor the McCain were certified for the majority of the mission operation requirements that the Navy periodically evaluates.
The Seventh Fleet’s destroyers and cruisers generally met certification in other areas such as maintenance, communications, navigation, explosive safely and search and rescue.
It is unclear what role the lack of proper certification played in the collisions, and Pentagon investigations are under way both into the collisions and into larger questions of naval operations.
But the certification reports suggest that the U.S. Navy may have knowingly sent ships to sea that weren’t fully certified for the missions they were conducting, said Bryan Clark, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments.
“This appears to be endemic of a systemic problem,” Mr. Clark said. The Seventh Fleet destroyers and cruisers “may not have had sufficient practice to do the difficult transits they were doing,” given the crowded waters they operate in.
Adm. Bill Moran, the vice chief of naval operations, and Rear Adm. Ronald Boxall, the Navy’s director of surface warfare, are scheduled to appear before two House Armed Services subcommittees Thursday on the collision of the USS Fitzgerald and USS John McCain. Lawmakers received the records earlier this week, ahead of Thursday’s joint hearing.
Also testifying will be John Pendleton, who has written extensively about the U.S. Navy for the Government Accountability Office, including in a series of reports that warned about overworked sailors and shortened training schedules.
After a ship has undergone maintenance, the U.S. Navy periodically conducts months long tests of its sailors on their ships to ensure they can properly maneuver the ship and conduct military operations.
The U.S. Navy has acknowledged cutting back on certification procedures in the face of growing demand, according to past GAO reports.
The Navy repeatedly has said that increased demand on the Seventh Fleet has resulted in cutbacks on training and certifications. That pressure has only increased in recent months with each North Korean missile or weapons test, as the fleet conducts more exercises and patrols with the same number of ships.
Navy Cmdr. Bill Speaks declined to comment on the certification records, but said the review of naval operations begun after the two fatal collisions would encompass training, professional development and operational certifications.
“It is the Navy’s responsibility to ensure that all of our sailors receive the skills they need to perform their jobs at sea safely and effectively, and we take that responsibility very seriously,” he said.
In the last two years, the cuts in certification testing appear to have only increased, based on reports provided to lawmakers. The GAO found that roughly 7% of cruisers and destroyers had expired certification in 2015. The latest figures show that figure has since jumped to 37%.
On Aug. 24, Adm. Moran drafted a memo ordering a comprehensive review of naval operations, including “gaps between required [certifications] standards and actual employment practices.” In that memo, Adm. Moran called the collisions a “disturbing trend of mishaps.”
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS, AND IT ISN’T JUST THE NAVY FOLKS, IT IS ACROSS THE BOARD FROM MILITARY TO PRISONS TO HOSPITALS, THE EXTERIOR LOOKS FINE, JUST DON’T LOOK INSIDE, IT IS FULL OF TERMITES AND DECAY, AND WE HAD BETTER TELL EVERYONE WE CAN, BUT WHO CARE’S, I MEAN REALLY, WHO OUT THERE REALLY CARES.
We in America are being scammed, tricked, lied to across the board, AND WE ARE ESPECIALLY BEING LIED TO BY liberals. You see, the Liberals across the world have been engineering plans and policies to use to gain and to keep power. How do they plan to do that you say.
To LIE ABOUT EVERY PROBLEM THEY ARE CAUSING OR HAVE CAUSED AND TO BLAME IT ON OTHERS.
To retain and grow Liberal minded voters by continually taking thousands of steps that will assist in doing this.
- Social progams
- Free Food
- Free Rent
- Free Cars
- Free Phones
- Free Medical care
- Free Abortion care
- Free Drug assistance
- Help with illegal immigration
- Sanctuary cities that hide Illegals from the law.
- Jails and prisons, that are overloaded with ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, then the state and cities in California especially, but other places too, allow the out to save money, but they will not tell us what the number of these illegals are, so letting them out relieves overcrowding, saves the state money, ( SO WHY NOT SIMPLY DEPORT THEM -? BECAUSE THEY ARE LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC VOTES) THIS IS PART OF THE SCHEME TO GAIN AND TO RETAIN POWER.
So, please look under the rocks, our politicians are at war, The democrats are devising every plan and scheme and lie to stay in power and to gain liberal voters, open borders, ect. ect, FIX THE BROKEN IMMIGRATION POLICY THEY SAY, CODE WORD FOR ALLOWING IN MORE DEMOCRAT VOTERS, IT IS A TRICK FROM THE GET GO.
Then the do nothing Republicans, they are being worked over by the democrats, and are afraid to pass any real legislation that might get them voted out, doing nothing is safer I guess, so yes, The Exterior looks all well and good, INSIDE, IT IS ROTTEN, AND WE ARE GOING NOWHERE, WE HAVE A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT, SENATE, AND HOUSE, AND CAN GET VERY LITTLE ACCOMPLISHED BY THESE ROTTEN POLITICIANS, BEING LEAD NOWHERE BY PAUL RYAN AND MITCH McCONELL, THIS IS REALLY BAD.
Solution: NO MATTER WHAT- TRUST GOD, the sign states, and I believe this whole heartily, GOD IS THE FINAL AUTHORITY, NOT THE PRESIDENT, NOT THE SENATE, NOT THE HOUSE OR THE GOVERNOR, SO PRAY ABOUT YOUR CONCERNS, ASK GOD TO HELP US ALL WITH THEE THINGS AND ALL OF YOUR PERSONAL ISSUES AND NEEDS.
