OK everyone .... when was the last time you heard, "We can't do that - we are out of funding."
We've talked about it once - we've talked about it a hundred times; your helpful friends from NAVSEA; are there enough of them to do their jobs? Do they have all the training they need?
A little broader - is this a Navy at war? Are we in a time of budget shortfalls?
Hmmm ..... there is only one thing to do .... ROADTRIP!
-----Original Message-----Personally - I think if you are in DC and pay federal taxes, show up. Get on the bus and go. You paid for it sucker ... errr ... taxpayer.
