  •  Oh yes, Reagan's big penis dream (1+ / 0-)

    The bigger the gun, the bigger the bang. Given his simple-minded approach to many issues, it was no surprise that the navy rushed this poorly rehab'd (and unnecessary) ship into service.

    Experimentation with ancient powder? I recall that, too, as well as the clearly bogus finger pointing they did to that sailor.

    When just one of these guns is fired, the decks have to be cleared of all people and all loose items. The blast is so huge that the shock wave it creates is fatal to anyone standing on deck. That's right. Fatal. Those film clips of Reagan standing under a massive gun, ready to kill those little yellow people? All hollywood make believe. (my honey's japanese, and she often scoffs at Ronnie's propaganda)

    To "experiment" with those guns is worse than foolhardy, and the final report on this whole sordid, deadly fiasco came to that conclusion.

    I remember reading a local paper's take on Kelso's apology. They did not mention the accusations in any detail, but they applauded Kelso for "doing the right thing under difficult circumstances." it is very rare for any high ranking person to admit a wrong, and to take responsibility for it. (Hey, did Condi ever apologize for being asleep at the NSC desk, ignoring the CIA and her own terror expert's warnings? I think not!)

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
