DEATH…KILLS

January 5, 2011

THIS JUST IN–

The U.S. Navy has relieved Captain Owen Honors from command of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. He was cited for extremely poor judgment in making and showing lewd videos on board when he was second in command.
In Norfolk, Virginia, today, Navy Admiral John Harvey said the ouster of Captain Honors is not the end of the matter. The Admiral, who is head of U.S. Fleet Forces Command is quoted as saying that Honors showed “extremely poor judgment” in producing and starring in the crude comedy videos, that were broadcast on the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier in 2006 and 2007. They came to light in The Virginian-Pilot newspaper over the weekend.

“The responsibility of the commanding officer for his or her command is absolute,” Harvey said.

“While Capt. Honors’ performance as commanding officer of USS Enterprise has been without incident, his profound lack of good judgment and professionalism while previously serving as executive officer on Enterprise calls into question his character and completely undermines his credibility to continue to serve effectively in command.”

The investigation will continue to look at all aspects of the production of the videos, to include the actions of other senior officers who knew of the videos and what they did or didn’t do in response.  Captain Honors has been reassigned to administrative duties with the commander Naval Air Forces Atlantic.

The Navy had known about the videos when they were made several years ago, but the admiral today offered no explanation for the delay in taking action.

I think I know what happened.

Somebody was offended.

PROBABLY NOT

The sailors and crew that watched the comedy videos! No, someone read the STORY in the NEWSPAPER,

and got all

OFFEND-Y…

(If I may coin an appropriate word)

That is obvious because WHEN THESE EVENTS OCCURRED, They were taken

at face value and

NOT OUT OF CONTEXT

of the situation.

THESE MEN ARE FIGHTING A WAR…

DOES EVERYBODY GET THAT??

Do ya think that

POSSIBLY

The real trouble here is that the whole world is

IN DENIAL

….as to WHAT WAR REALLY IS??

Definition of War: People getting killed, maimed, crippled, annihilated, obliterated, devastated, eradicated and rendered immobile…

People getting their hands, feet, faces, bodies blown to smithereens by roadside mines…

In my opinion,

WAR is the true definition of Obscenity!

Of Pornography!

Captain Honors did not do anything wrong.  He entertained his crew. All six thousand of them. They kicked up their heels. They had a little fun. Boys will be boys (no slam on female soldiers)

No HARM, No FOUL!

I looked these words up on Dictionary.com.

PORNOGRAPHY:

The depiction of acts in a sensational manner so as to arouse a quick intense emotional reaction <as in the pornography of violence>

OBSCENE/OBSCENITY:

a:  abhorrent to morality or virtue;

b : containing or being language regarded as taboo in polite usage <as in obscene lyrics>

c : repulsive by reason of crass disregard of moral or ethical principles <as in an obscene misuse of power>

d : so excessive as to be offensive <as in obscene wealth> or <obscene waste>

Captain Honors

HAS BEEN DISHONORED…

…by being called upon the carpet for his method of entertaining the troops under his command.

I say:    HE MADE FUNNY VIDEOS. SO WHAT?!

It’s not like there is a war on.

IF WAR AND DEATH ARE THE ANSWER,

(what was the question again?)

IT IS THIS KIND OF BULLSHIT NEWS THAT MAKES ME CONSIDER THROWING THE TV OUT THE WINDOW.

Except–

I was at the gym when I saw this report. They would seriously frown on that.

    I liked this Deb.

    I believe the small minded and politically correct pricks that saw fit to relieve the commander of his duties are typical of the lame managers whose only thoughts are to cover their own ass. If these people had any hair on their ass, which they never do, they would be saluting the commander for promoting morale on a warship bound for a war zone. I suppose people imagine an aircraft carrier is just like a Carnival cruise ship with a few more weapons.

    Anyway good blog Deb…..
