    Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus

    NORFOLK, VA – Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus went on a tour of the USS San Antonio today to promote his new initiative to separate all enlisted sailors and replace them with civilian contractors. “This is a great way to save the Navy money,” Mabus said as he explained the reasoning behind the pending decision. “Every sailor costs the Navy roughly $300,000 a year, so we decided to give them all generous separation packages and rehire them as contractors at double their enlisted salary. It won’t cost a thing to recruit or train them.”

    Many observers noted that Mabus has ignored the fact that they were previously recruited and trained by the military.

    It is still astounding to see anyone would read that blog and repeat it believing it was real. If Longknife's IQ is over 80 I'd be amazed.
