    George H.W. Bush, that is, the aircraft carrier.

    When they call themselves Progressives it means progressing toward Fascism.

    What is inappropriate about wearing a t-shirt depicting the ship your son serves on?

    I felt the same way about wearing band t-shirts. One guy got fired for wearing a sex-pistols shirt on a Saturday.

    Why? We had brits all around..and he was asked to turn it inside out.

    He refused.

    Bye.

    Not too sure a Sex-Pistols shirt and a U.S.S. George H.W. Bush Shirt are exactly analogous.

    These were all Americans setting up a rally for the American President and fire a guy for wearing the representation of an American Warship that as the C-in-C the President ostensibly commands.

    Stupidity of the highest order. (EDIT- the firing, not your analogy)
