“That would be a tragedy but these ship museums never are profitable enough to maintain a ship.”
And do we keep things in museums only based upon their profit? The land at Gettysburg would make a great subdivision. This would truly be as bad as sinking the original USS Constitution, Old Ironsides.
Of all the absolute garbage the government spends money on,,, they would sink this ship?
We hand it out money like *confetti* to ungrateful african dictators,,,also to North Korea,, promise 43 BILLION to the UN for Global warming, we buy rifles and Grenade launchers for the PLO,,
Probably the money the US govt spends on condoms and syringes for addicts would restore this treasure many times over.
How about another crazy INSANE idea,, sell Pelosi’s 757 with free liquor, she flies commercial and the USS Olymia is saved!
Maybe the southern ship museums like USS North Carolina do better but here is what is in Mass.
USS Salem-private,barely hanging on
USS Massachusetts private, barely hanging on
USS Cassin Young/ USS Constitution-Boston Navy yard government financed, perfectly preserved and maintained.
Only scumhole leftist PIGS would sink this beautiful and unique historic relic.
F’n Hate America pigs.
