    USS Ted Stevens? Are you nuts!?

    So some legislators want to name the next aircraft carrier after a CONVICTED FELON!?

    Gee, I wonder if they are from Alaska by any chance.

    http://www.militarytimes.com/news/20...tevens-031413w

    Unfortunately, the article completely fails to mention anything of the controversy around this guy.

    The ‘King of Pork’ is what they call this guy – Alaskans call him ‘Uncle Ted’ because of all the pork barrel spending he brought to Alaska. Does the ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ sound familiar to anyone? Yea, that’s this guy.

    After six decades as a Senator, yea, I am sure he had nothing to do with our current fiscal problems.

    Convicted felon by the way, sure it was over turned on a procedural technicality, the technicality being that he was a Senator, but still convicted, on several counts.

    In case you forgot, this is the guy who had oil company executives in his house paying contractors six figures to remodel it for him. Criminal for the rest of us, but apparently its not even unethical if you are a Senator.

    No ship in the U.S. Navy deserves the disgrace of being named after this shyster.

    Besides, from what I hear, Alaskans have already been falling over themselves to name mountains, glaciers, air ports, building and who knows what else after him.

    I gotta go find out who these legislators are, who ever answers the phone is going to get an ear full.

    Yes, big oil tax profits guaranteed by bought and paid for Senators tends to have that effect.

    So they still have a surplus. Plus I've never heard of an Alaskan complain about Alaska or the state government of Alaska.

    Almost all politicians are crooks. Why arent people all bent out of shape about all the other ships. JFK had some shady dealings as well. Alleged adulterer.
