PORTLAND, Maine – A CIVILIAN employee set a fire that caused $400 million in damage to a nuclear-powered submarine because he had anxiety and wanted to get out of work early, Navy investigators said in a complaint filed Monday.
we agreed this city was like a morgue
you said we should liven things up around here
this is red when we paint the walls with fire and pools of cream
this is my mouth with sharp silver teeth and our implausible dream
these are the blues when sung to you by blue lips the likes you've never seen
will the smoke leave us time?
or has someone extinguished your fire?
maybe you'd rather be left behind?
this is how it sells when there is no product in the store
this is how we enter when there are no handles on the door
this is sleep when they remove the warmth from our little house
this is how you glow burning there as quiet as a mouse

this intentional sabotage is nothing new, its been going on for decades,the shipyard workers know when they get done with a ship they get laid off because their isnt another ship to start on, so they damage something so they or another worker has something to do,. it works like this , a plumber will go about his job and then when he's alone he pulls out wire cutters and snips away at exposed wires, that way electrician has another day or two of work.electrician will do the same and take a hammer and smash plumbing when they can.In 1963 the USS Threasher, the first nuclear powered attack sub was lost with all hands 129 men , in deep water off the east coast..During its one year drydock retrofit after sea trials many problems were found and had to be intentional sabotage, one was a valve that was stuck, after removing valve it was found a flashlight was inside valve, and it had to be put their by hand ,now way could it have fallen into valve.Its unknown whether worker sabotage caused the loss of USS threaser or not but it may have contributed to the loss..THESE BASTARDS SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH TREASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!edit on 24-7-2012 by madokie because: (no reason given)
