I am one of the hardest workers you will ever meet.

The worst decision in my life was joining the US Navy. I enlisted with a squeaky clean record and left with an arrest record, 'Alcohol Rehab Failure' on my DD-214 and a General Discharge which means no GI Bill.

Do not try and tell me my misfortunes are all my own fault. Because of me getting screwed over by the system I have no problems collecting Food Stamps. It is the least the US government can do for me.

I did sign over my life to them.

So it is the fault of the US Navy that you got arrested while in the service???

Was it your recruiter that forced you to do what you did, crime wise?? Maybe someone like your First Sergeant?
Oohh, what about your Lt? I bet it was his/her fault.

No wonder you are where you are at in life. Everyone else is to blame for your situation.

First Sergeant in the Navy? Are you serious?

My command had a vendetta against DUIs so they put my head on the chopping block. Their loss more than mine. I have many shipmates and friends who have DUIs and other arrests without finding themselves in my kind situation. Truly the luck of the draw.

The United States Navy had poor leadership when I was in. I regret not joining the Marine Corps.

Keep playing the blame game!

Someone answer please this question:

What does promote the General Welfare mean to you?

I agree

Welfare to me is a temporary measure to help someone get back on their feet.

It should not be a lifestyle

So, let's recap this life based chain of events.

YOU chose to join the Navy.
YOU chose to drink.
YOU chose to drive.
YOU got caught.
YOU were bounced out due to YOUR choices.
YOU are now okay with being poor, because YOU are happy.
YOU are fine with living off of others.

That about sums it up.

And you think you would have had a better go in the Marines??

Okay then.

As for the rank structure in the Navy...never paid much attention to that. Never worked with Navy peoples while I was in.

Has little to do with what it means to me, or anyone.

What does it state within the Constitution.

Still dodging that question I see.

I have long paid for my crimes and it is unfair that I am stuck working for slave wages.

If I did not love my homeland I could simply go sell some information to the Ruskies....

I want this country to improve, obviously the USA needs to be righted. Some would argue we need a a full blown mutiny to get her on a true course again.

That is a poor excuse for not knowing that Sergeant is not a Naval rank. I took it upon my self to learn all the ranks of all the other branches, including the Air Force.

I also took the time to memorize the Preamble to the Constitution.

No doubt in my mind that I would have done much better in the Marine Corps, or perhaps a different enlisted rate, because I would have been with like minded people.

The only reason I drank in the Navy was to be social with people I otherwise did not click with. I was surrounded by lazy people who could care less about doing their job while at work. My experience with the Marine Corps(went to A and C school side by side) is they work hard and look after their own. The Navy was full of Bravo Foxtrots if you know what I mean.

Yep, all because you are forced to live with the results of your choices.

Good for you.
Can you take that dedication and apply it to other aspects in life....like furthering a career perhaps?? Or is memorizing items like that, which has yet to provide anything stating that there is to be Govt based welfare, a better use of your time.

Like minded??? Like those that chose DUI?

SO yet another excuse as to your actions in life.
Is it at any point ever your fault?

And Marines don't stand for people that make excuses why they could or couldn't do something. Yeah, I don't see you fitting in.

My choices have nothing to do with the direction the USA is heading.

What branch were you in?(if you were even in the military)

Never said it was.
Your just mad because your life choices have you in a situation that you take no responsibility for, thus blame the current standing of the US.

You tell me. You must have my DD-214 on hand, to make certain statements.

The Preamble to the United States Constitution is arguably the most important part of it. Amazing that you blindly took at oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America with your life without ever taking the time to read the Preamble.

Since my girlfriend and her girlfriend are both sleeping, I am going to walk across the street to the beach and check things out.

No leads on any work in my online search today, I worked yesterday for my brother making slave wages. Hopefully I can find a someone who wants a surf lesson for some extra cash.

Life is what we make of it, the only reason I am collecting food stamps is because I can not find steady work.

Well good for you...

Just don't forget though. When the man comes around and tells you to jump or dance for your Govt goodies, don't cry about it. I mean, you do have a happy life and all and don't want to do anything to upset this great situation you got going for yourself.

Have you tried maybe painting?? Like Pelosi has stated that when people have time free from worrying about working and such, they can do.

You have no clue soldier.

The bait fish are thick at the beach, time for me to go fishing.

I am only online because I am searching for work online. If it weren't so difficult to get a Restricted Species Commercial Saltwater products I could sell the fish I catch for money.

I have learned to take what I can get.
