You know, figuring out what would and wouldn't be an "essential job" never factored into my choosing what I would do for work. Why? Pandemics like this don't come around very often, so it's not really a factor that a normal person would figure into their career decisions.

I chose to join the Navy, because it sounded like a great opportunity to see new places, and it was. I've done more travel and been to more places than most, and the best part is, I didn't have to pay to get there, the Navy paid me to go there.

Once I chose the Navy, I then chose my rate and became a Personnelman. Why? Because being part of the commands admin meant that I would be in the loop better than someone who was working in Deck or Engineering. I also liked the fact that I would be in an office and would learn to work with computers and the like.

Pandemics and "essential jobs" weren't something that figured into any of my career choices.

I don't think anyone else was figuring on this either.
A pencil pusher.....Yeah, great job, pajama boy. Dont want to be there around jet fighters or missiles for they might have to be used. What a pussy....No wonder youre a fucking liberal....
Don't be around jet fighters? I was a member of the PRP team while stationed with VFA-131. Being a member of that team, I was responsible for loading nuclear weapons onto the FA-18. I've also been around the jets when the AD's (jet mechanics) were doing full power turns to check their work.

My first command? I was a member of the At Sea Fire Party (wanted to be authorized to wear a red hat), as well as a repair locker, and also the CBR teams (Chemical Biological Radiological).

When I was up in Newport, I volunteered to be a member of the Security Force teams, meaning I patrolled the base and guarded the gate, armed with a 9mm.

I've also been a PRT coordinator, DAPA, led a MEPS, as well as worked in recruiting as a Classifier.

Sorry, but your assumptions about me are wrong, but keep trying to troll me if it helps you sleep at night.

Oh yeah....................I also served in 4 different war zones.
SK loading nukes on a FA-18........................

:auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg:

Fuck dude..................if you are gonna insult me, at least get my rating right. I wasn't an SK, an SK is a Storekeeper, and they are responsible for ordering, maintaining and distributing cargo. I was a Personnelman (PN), and my job was merged with another rate about a year after I retired. PN's are responsible for taking care of the administrative functions of the enlisted in the command, as well as figuring pay and entitlements to pass on to the Disbursing Clerks (DK). And, apparently, you don't understand that the Navy has things called collateral duties, which are done in addition to your normal job. Army, Air Force and Marines can all expand and build a bigger base if more personnel are needed. You can't enlarge a ship very easily, which is why we Navy personnel are trained to perform more than just one job. I was an At Sea Fire Party member, PRP team member, CBR team member, DAPA, PRT coordinator and Security Force member, all were collateral duties performed at various commands. And yeah, I volunteered for the PRP teams because I wanted to learn about the FA-18.
Easy to wind you the hell up.........so easy.....sk.......lol

Did you get paper cuts there........LOL

Nukes.........give me a break......gonna bring in the backhoe and shovel that....

I understand multiple duties............DCC.......sounding and security.......EPCP.......Repair Lockers and so forth.......................fighting fires is everyone's jobs..........in between you getting a paper cut.
Believe what you want, but yeah, when I was with VFA-131, the PRP teams loaded nukes on them. They were big long white things with a red tip, about 10 ft long.


And, while you are correct that everyone is responsible for being a member of the inport fire party, in order to be a member of the at sea fire party, you have to volunteer, and then they send you to advanced fire fighting school. Upon graduation, I was issued a red ball cap to differentiate me from the other members of the ship who wore blue.

Best part about being a member of the at sea fire party? If a drill was called and people didn't get out of your way when they saw your red hat, you were allowed to plow them over to get to the scene.
Wow..........you sounded like a hero.........LOL

Doubt you loaded any dang nukes ..............and everyone gets a taste of fire parties in the Navy.........nothing special there..........My last GQ stations were in the engine rooms......on the EPCP.............

Again..........nothing special.........

All this dick measuring is no more interesting than the three thousandth thread whining about social distancing. Watch out FCT doesn't catch ya--I got a post taken down yesterday for saying "shut up." Imagine what YOU will be in for.
Why are you stealing the tape measures dang it...............

I'm saving that one for a special occasion downstairs.

It’s easy to pontificate “science” when your kids are not going to bed hungry.
I supported the lockdown thinking it would probably go on for 3 or 4 weeks. I also made a substantial donation (for me) to our local food shelves. But this is now insane!

I am SHOCKED it's gone on this long and I am SHOCKED that people have not revolted yet!

We now know how to open (with masks and social distancing) but we can't yet open packed air planes or football stadiums...and DAG NABBIT I NEED A FRIGGAN HAIR CUT!!!

I look like cousin it!

WE NEED TO OPEN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!!! NOW!

IMHO wallmart and all grocery stores & gas stations should shut down at this point (showing solidarity with everybody else).

If we can't open then EVERYBODY will starve!

How ya like them apples?

Of the people who most staunchly support the lockdown, what is the percentage of those who have jobs with guaranteed income? It’s easy to pontificate “science” when your kids are not going to bed hungry.

We know the posters who fully support the lockdown. Any of you unemployed with mouths to feed?
Guaranteed income?

Sounds like another blob-supporter invention.

I've not missed a day of work since this started if that is what you mean. As a hospital administrator during a health pandemic, there is a certain built-in guarantee of coming to work but I could be fired tomorrow (or tonight) so there is no "guaranteed income" here.

As for the lockdown, these measures should remain in place as long as science dictates. The trends are positive with reduced death tallies and fewer hospitalizations. That is a result of mitigation measures. Did we over-react? Probably. Erring on the side of caution when lives are at stake is the smart position. Your opposition is not surprising.

Yes, guaranteed. For example, you can count the number of Federal workers fired this year on one hand.
And thank you for bringing up pure science, Dr Joseph Mengele. So where did you hide the 2 million dead in this shutdown, why are a quarter million medical professionals without a job now, sending CV19 patients to elderly care homes, Etc etc.
You achieved your goal:

Wow...so many dumb comments from you in such a small space. Results of a small brain I guess. I stopped reading when I got to Federal workers. Your blob has fired more IGs than the number of fingers on one hand so you're full of shit.

Yesterday you were upset about baristas being employed while you're basking in your uselessness. Today I guess you're upset at others who are essential and realizing you don't matter that much.

So you have no clue where the 2 million dead from CV19 science said would be with us now during the shutdown.

Not hard to figure out where they are. They aren't there. Reason being that people went into lockdown. A lockdown you are now moaning about.

As to your question. Yes in my country all of us have a guaranteed income. We also have a system where employers who don't have work for their employees can send them on temporary unemployment instead of firing them.

Well ain’t that grand. So we’ll check you off the list of having input into how long the shutdown should last.

This is not difficult to understand. Those of us who want to flatten the curve, thereby making sure that the economic interruption would be as short as possible and saving lives, also favor sending substantial checks ( $2000 per month ) to every adult citizen. This would ensure that everyone eats and that the wheels of the economy stay moving.

If RW Trombie nutbags would stop devoting so much time to inventing evil conspiracies which have them believing that libs and and Democrats want to destroy the nation, they might be able to start thinking about solutions.

Due to the fact that we lack leadership and have never had a national call to action, we are still facing a deadly problem and cannot “open up” yet.

This is what you get when you elect an incompetent narcissist to be president.

Oh yeah....................I also served in 4 different war zones.

What Does a Navy Personnel Specialist Do?
Personnel specialists (PS) serve the U.S. Navy's enlisted personnel in ways that are similar to those of career counselors and human resources professionals.
A god damn paper pusher...Yeah, tell me another one, Personnel man?

Bet you wouldnt even know a jet fighter if it ran your sorry ass over....
I find it interesting that someone who never served in the Navy is talking bad about how someone who actually served did their time. I guess you've never heard of collateral duties (fire fighting, PRP teams and Security Force are examples of that, duties you do in addition to your regular job). I was told a long time ago that NAVY stands for Never Again Volunteer Yourself, but I was too interested in learning as much as I could about the various things I came into contact with. And yeah, I know the difference between the regular Hornet (FA-18), vs. the Super Hornet. Do you? Do you even know how to tell them apart?
I question your service in the Navy, because now that you are a flaming liberal, you are for the very people who hate the military. That is called Hypocrisy, you sperm(seaman) of a pajama boy.

As for differences of Aircraft. I worked for McDonnell Douglas who made those jets, so YES, i know the difference between them, without having to do a google search. Do you know the difference between a F-15C/D model and the F-15E/F model without google searching?

Again i worked on the C/D models to retrofit them with the equipment necessary so the E/F models could be made.

Back last month, the curve was flattened, but you lazy fat, socialist liberals, dont want to go outside(vampires never do when the sun is up) you just want that money, you never fucking earned. No more free money, get the fuck out of your house and work(Work is that 4 letter word that liberals hate, for work to a liberal is like garlic to a vampire).

But that 2 million model took into account the mitigation efforts
So you are wrong again... They based the house arrest of the American people on a known bad model

The model was to by time for the medical community so they would not be overwhelmed..............NOT TO STOP THE VIRUS........

THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE...........That has been done long ago........the data on the numbers WAS WRONG........and the DATA on businesses going under PERMANENTLY is GROWING.........if you wanted to FUCK OVER THIS COUNTRY..........then you have a prime example of how to do so right now. We have destroyed business because of Gov't.......and now more people want more govt.

Sorry......that's like having an arsonist put in your fire suppression system........no thanks.

If murder is against the law, why are people still murdered?

Not every one complies with measures that are logical and to their benefit. Example; Trump being elected.

Why? because liberal like you have no "Sanctity of Life". You know "if it feels good, just do it". Release felons upon the masses, because they could die of an infection, so they get released and then commit crimes again. You worthless fucking liberals(redundant statement i know) have no morals, no ethics, and no integrity.

Also when you kill babies born and unborn, because the mother wants to murder it in the name of choice, it is teaching liberal children that it is okay to kill.
