    Having been a drunk sailor on leave in CONUS from New York to California and Washington (State) to Florida, in Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Australia, Thailand, etc...

    I wish we would stop saying that politicians spend like drunk'n sailors. Why?

    In my day when a sailor went on liberty in these ports we went out with a fixed amount of money in our pockets. Once it was gone it was gone.

    I can't think of one time awakening in Olongapo (read as sobering up) and finding that I'd spent 20 years worth of pay in one night of drunk'n stupor.



    Let's end the bigotry and insults against drunk'n sailors

    **burp**

    And the OTHER Sailor myth I find annoying is the Horney as a sailor on shore leave myth.

    Excuse me, please but I was a sailor for 4 years three hours and 16 minutes.

    I can assure you that I was horny when I was on duty, too.

    That is all.

    As you were.

    The term " Coked out Longshoreman" would be much more appropriate.

    At least the drunk sailor is spending his own money.
