barefoot in the head: "After the rescue, Morel wound up being sent to Cuba ... a single mother named Louise Jackson, wound up adopting him."

Stop that.


"It can only happen in America."

What a load.


He was found in the middle of the ocean either he had family in Cuba or Cuba was closer so he had to be sent there as the U.S. Navy took him mom and tried to save her life, plus they paid to have him come and visit with his mom many times where a woman a U.S. citizen decided to take him in so he would not be sent back to Haiti.

F.Y.I. the U.S. takes in more immigrants than all the worlds Countries put together every year and STILL some asshats cry foul when we turn people away even though if we didn't we would be shoulder to should people.

He really is a very good potential officer. He's been in the ship simulators here on the USCGA where I provide training in to all the cadets. While the graduation is going on 1/8 mile away on campus, I'll be training the next level of officers in prospective co/xo school. Fair winds and following seas to you all.

You've reminded me that, in addition to the "smart" and "funny" tags, we need a "SHUT UP YOU COCK" tag.
