Another LCS Facepalm

Rejoice dear hearts! More and more people are joining the front porch circa 2006!
The Navy’s new Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is not only staggeringly overpriced and chronically unreliable but — even if it were to work perfectly — cannot match the combat power of similar sized foreign warships costing only a fraction as much.
Tom Sayen over at Time's BattleLandBlog takes a swing at hitting the bold-faced items about LCS we've been discussing over the last 6-8 years or so. Follow the link and nod that, yes, more and more people are seeing it.

UPDATE: RDML Kirby has responded ... should I fisk it? Most of his "facts" are actually assumptions. Big difference, and in any event - we've seen this PPT before. Why do we keep thinking that just because someone puts their hopes on a PPT slide that all of a sudden makes it a fact?

Link added to RDML Kirby's response. Sorry about that.

Most of us don't eat the right food in the proper amounts. You will just need a few things to be able to replace it yourself. You'd like to be able to find your way home along a new trail.

Forklift operators with a qualification can earn nearly $8 an hour more than untrained truck drivers, and that means you can improve your hourly rate by nearly fifty percent. The employer must ensure that each operator is trained and evaluated for the specific type and model of truck that will be used. This will allow you to only pay for the forklift whenever you absolutely need it.
