Just remember, the US Navy is a “ global force for GOOD”, dontchaknow.
“...Will it have guns and ammunition?...”
Only in standard seven round magazines.
She never served a day in the military. What a crock of BS!
But typical of the dumbass moron sitting in the White House.
The USS Jeremiah Wright is coming soon.
Is it a split hull design?....................
She is being rewarded for bravely stopping a bullet with her head that would have surely damaged the blacktop in the parking lot.
What exactly did Gabby Giffords do, other than get shot by a lunatic, while in office. She's still alive and causing trouble for Americans. SecNav Ray Mabus is a total ass.
I would Christen that LCS Victoria Soto. She was that teacher in Newton CT last December. She threw her body over her children to protect them, an act of conspicuous gallantry for which she sacrificed her life. That’s heroism.
I was hoping this was satire.
What the hell is wrong with the USN? They name one after Cesar Chavez, another after John Murtha, and now they name one after Giffords? Funny, I haven’t heard of them planning to name a ship after Sgt. Dakota Meyer, USMC, who received the MoH for saving 36 lives.
Its is getting to the point that I am almost going to cheer for the PLAN to sink some USN ships. I would almost like to read “USS James E. Carter, SSN 23, sunk.”
This comes from a DNC that honored the Russian Navy and the Turkish Air acrobat team last year at their national convention.
Was USS Sandy Hook already taken?
Not to worry! They plan to have the ship do double duty. Mooch and the obozo kids can use the thing to be ferried from vacation to vacation.
That'll give it a real workout!
FROM SFGATE earlier this year:
It is official: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors backs the idea of the Navy naming a vessel after gay political leader Harvey Milk. But the decision came only after debating the power of symbolism and consulting with a spirit board.
The non-binding resolution, approved 9-2, urges the Secretary of the Navy to christen a ship the U.S.S. Harvey Milk. It supports the request of San Diego Congressman Bob Filner, the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee.
naming a war ship to a woman who now wants guns banned and who was shot.
You can;t even make this up.
Still, we might even get a warship named after her lying, hypocritical husband in a few years.
Wait till the biggest fairy homosexual is killed. We’ll be hearing how a warship is named after him now and how the ship will go on a diversity tour.
...they’re naming a weapon after Gabby Giffords?
How’s that for ironic?
If anyone here deserves to be honored in such a fashion, it should be Judge John Roll.
Said the same last night.
Because someone gets shot doesn;t now make them a hero,or brave.
I;m sick of hearing the word hero, even for the military they are not all hero’s.
bedding storeman,cooks, officer waiters etc.
Hell one guy joined the national guard, he wears his uniform to go to chic-fi-a and the manager came over to him and thanked him for his service and gave him a free meal.
Then told the crowd give a big hand for our hero’s.
Problem is that the guy who is the son of my wifes friend only joined to get freebies, he openly admits it.
He;’s only ever been to Ft Benning and only been in for a few months.
Many people who joined care only for their freebies today, and for the likes of this admin or the media to say our hero’s is B/S
She isn’t a deceased Navy veteran. Next we’ll heard about the USS Bill Ayers and the USS Bernadine Dhorn.
N F W !!!
What ever happened to the good old days when you had to be dead to have a ship named after you, much less have done something to deserve the honor?
