Navy: Random alcohol
tests for sailors in US

Associated Press, by Brock Vergakis

NORFOLK, Va. - The Navy said Wednesday it will conduct random blood-alcohol tests on its sailors in the United States starting next month, a sign of how concerned the service´s leaders have become about the effects alcohol abuse is having on the force.(Snip)A positive test result for a sailor reporting to work - a reading of 0.02 percent or higher - won´t be used to punish sailors. But the Navy said it could be used to refer him or her to a drug and alcohol program adviser. Adm. Mark Ferguson, vice chief of naval operations, said the random tests could help spot sailors

Comments:
.02?!? Cripes, you´d test higher than that if you took a quick swallow of NyQuil ! And it says they won´t be used to punish? Yeah, right. Not being advanced to the level paygrade is punishment, and you KNOW those test results will be kept on file.

We rehabbed the officer staterooms on a carrier in drydock. We pulled empty liquor bottles by the score from under the racks.

I´m glad I was a sailor in the 1960s. We were still allowed to live up to our reputation, and I certainly did on a regular basis.

Part of the denigration, humiliation & demoralization of our military personnel. Our once proud service peeps agree to die for their country but now need to worry about drinking a beer too close to shift start.

Pray, pray, pray that we survive the next 4 years.

I also read elsewhere that the top military ranks were being culled by asking if they could order their troops to shoot Americans, on US soil. Those that say no are being quietly re-assigned or retired. Hopefully one will come forward & expose this.

I remember a flight surgeon (an M.D. specifically trained and assigned to a squadron or air group) stating that 20% of naval aviators displayed symptoms of alcoholism.

I remember parties that 90% of the naval aviators present were displaying symptoms of alcoholism.

Launch the Ensigns!

Banana Republicans: New Head Of
Virginia GOP on Eric Cantor’s Payroll
PJ Media, by David Steinberg    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/15/2014 3:11:20 PM     Post Reply
On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader. The magnitude of the revelation can not be overstated: GOP voters

Nahshon Shelton didn’t want to pay the 22-cent tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi on Saturday afternoon, Chicago police said. So he allegedly pulled a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun out of his Gucci satchel inside the convenience store in the 4000 block of West Madison Street where they tried to make him pay it -- and he threatened to kill everyone there, a prosecutor said. This "is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt!" he would later allegedly tell the cops, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Undocumented immigrants as teachers?

DENVER – Denver Public Schools administrators believe they are the first school district in the nation to actively seek out people who were initially brought to the United States illegally to now teach in the classroom. "We look forward to increasing the number of great teachers who are in our classrooms and who are also role models for children who have similar cultural backgrounds and life experiences," Tom Boasberg, superintendent of Denver Public Schools, said. (Snip) But, Denver has a significant population of students who are undocumented, and Boasberg believes this effort will help serve those families.

Sen. Angus King thinking of
caucusing with Republicans

U.S. Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, said he’s considering caucusing with Republicans if they win a majority of seats in the Senate during the midterm elections. Shortly after he voted with Republicans on Wednesday against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a piece of legislation that Democrats have prioritized ahead of the November elections, King was asked whether he might align with Republicans. Since he was elected in 2012, the two-term Maine governor has caucused with Democrats and voted with them on most issues. “I’ll make my decision at the time based on what I think is best for Maine,”

Darrell Issa: Emails suggest Elijah Cummings
prompted IRS targeting of True the Vote
Washington Examiner, by Susan Ferrechio    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/9/2014 5:13:32 PM     Post Reply
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

US trade deficit hits $42.3 billion in February
Associated Press, by Martin Crutsinger    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/3/2014 10:42:52 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. trade deficit climbed to the highest level in five months in February as demand for American exports fell while imports increased slightly. The deficit increased to $42.3 billion, which was 7.7 percent above the January imbalance of $39.3 billion, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. (Snip) The administration is negotiating one trade agreement with Japan and 10 other Pacific nations. The other agreement would be a trans-Atlantic deal with the 28-nation European Union. The deals would lower trade barriers and are seen by supporters as a good way to boost U.S. export sales. But critics, including many labor unions,

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
