To: Irishguy; All
maybe someone can hunt this out but i have a disticnt memory of the ussr pulling this crap during the Carter depression. He too bent over for them and they took full advantage. it took Reagan to fight back. anyone else remember that?

No, not so much...I was a Standley Steamer 1977-80 and we most certainly did not bend over for the Soviets in any way! Not that that idiot Carter was good for the navy whatsoever. I distinctly remember two times when it was uncertain whether we were actually going to be paid, and Navy Relief geared up to help the families who depended on dad's paycheck. Death to leftist scum!
