What has Obama done for the veterans and families of the USS Indianapolis?

BIG. FAT. NOTHING.

That's what. That's right, NOTHING!

I guess he's too busy taking vacations and fundraising rather than take care of these brave men. He doesn't care. I've never heard him even mention the ship - NEVER!

We need to impeach him and TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!!

Ex-Texan: Wasn't there a senate inquiry a few years ago, that came to the conclusion sharks didn't get the guys? Now I'm no icthyologist, but it seems to me there'd be a lot of blood in the water. I'm thinking bullshiat on that story. When I was in junior high, I remember mandatory reading stories likew this, sailors going in the water, and being picked off by sharks. One part, a guy in a life jacket bobbed up, they knew the sharks got him, but didn't realize for sure until he flipped over in the water, and his bottom half was gone.
Speaking of "Jaws", I remember when it came out in '76 or so, my Uncle was telling my Dad about it, he said it scared you shiatless. He said when the movie was over,"That theatre stunk!" Was before Star Wars.
Lotsa kids nowadays cry over paper cuts, any blood in movies, or their parents expressing outrage over a movie that isn't Sky Wizard specific, or a diluted, mentally ill representative of such.

He did mention how much he liked the Indianapolis Colts during a round of golf. He then ate a lobster dinner at the local mosque.

These guys will eat you quite intentionally, and do so with a smile, if you happen to be involved in some kind of nautical disaster at sea... The Bull obviously is the biggest threat since it likes murky areas near shore (and can go inland through freshwater rivers), but the Oceanic White Tip is basically the nautical disaster garbage disposal.

I avoid them all.


With your username I would think they'd avoid YOU.

What's REALLY funny is they all fought and died so Germany could be the economic powerhouse of Europe today! LOL!

Pfft.  He was probably a liar.  I bet your daddy shoveled schitt in Louisiana.


No it's possible. A guy I knew through work said he was a vet of both. As it turns out, he was in boot camp for the end of WWII, and got his discharge right before he was to ship to Korea for the start of that one.  He was quite proud of being a veteran of those 2 wars, and thrilled with all the accolades and reverence people heaped on him.

ArcadianRefugee: I was here on Fark making cancer jokes the same day my father died of lung cancer. Got me a month of TF for it, too.

So, uhm

I had a dream that my husband was killed by getting hit by a train, and I came on fark not for condolances, but for people to make jokes about it.

My favorite was the "O Brother where art thou" references.  He loves that movie.

andynz81: I'm not too familiar with what happened, so I thought I'd have a quick read of Wikipedia. The following sentence stood out:

"The  Indianapolis sent distress calls before sinking. Three stations received the signals; however, none acted upon the call. One commander was drunk, another had ordered his men not to disturb him and a third thought it was a Japanese trap."

What.


Was the third Admiral Akbar?

They're job creators.

The livelihood of thousands of certified nurse's assistants depends on them.

Quint's monolog was a bit disjointed in places, I think the point was that he was half in the bag while telling it.
