Yeah I Caught That A Long Time Ago

Saw that stupid commercial about a year ago when I still could bring myself to turn on the TV and saw that we had suddenly turned our navy into a "Force for Global Good" GAAAAAAAAAGE.

skippy

I caught three things right off the bat.

1. No American Flag.
2. "...defend freedom and democracy around the world."
3. "Global force for good."

How did I do?

You Noticed

way more than I did. I just noticed "Force for Global Good"

skippy

yep

no doubt

That creed was changed from

I have chosen to serve in the United States Navy. America depends on my performance for her survival, and I accept the challenge to set my standards high, placing my country's well-being above self-interest.

:I will be loyal to my country, its Constitution and laws, and to my shipmates.

:I will be honest in my personal and professional life and encourage my shipmates to do the same.

:I will, to the best of my ability, do the right thing for its own sake, and I am prepared to face pain or death in defense of my country.

:I will be a professional, wearing my uniform with pride and accepting responsibility for my actions.

:I will set excellence as my standard and always strive for ways to make me a better sailor and my crew a better crew.

I was a soldier

not a seaman. Glad you still remember

I haven't been keeping up on current events like I should,

Could someone please tell me when the USA became a democracy?

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Sailor's creed "1993/4"

Sailors Creed

I am a United States Sailor.

I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and I will obey the orders of those appointed over me.

I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and those who have gone before me to defend freedom and democracy around the world.

I proudly serve my country's Navy combat team with Honor, Courage and Commitment.

I am committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all.

The "Sailors Creed" was written by a "Blue Ribbon Recruit Training Panel" in 1993 at the direction of Chief of Naval Operations Admiral
Frank Kelso

Spot the contradiction

I see a tad of lipservice followed by real intent, leading to rock and a hard place

gave me an ERROR when i tried to use the word: "oathkeepers". When I separated it into two words is worked. Bastards.

the new oath to serve the NWO in the world, and nothing about the constitution or defending America. It is brain washing.

Exactly, no peep about the

Exactly, no peep about the respect of life, the respect of what war means, no understanding of war being used as a last resort when there are no other options and only when your country is in imediate danger, if everyone followed that policy, the bad guys are easilly identifiable, they'll be the ones attacking withou provacation

America's Navy and Military have become the

power and might of the global NWO and your sons and daughters and grandchildren now pledge to serve the global NWO in their greedy desire for wealth and power globally. Nothing about defending the constitution or America.

AND Right under the noses of the American people your land is being handed over to the UN. This is happening folks.

The brain washing that worked in Nazi Germany is being used on America. Could be a long time on this road to hell before it is turned around and people wake up.

Defend the Constitution from

Defend the Constitution from whom? Conspicuously absent are the words all enemies foreign and domestic. And by pushing the defense of freedom and democracy around the world they seem to have forgotten their purpose, to defend freedom here at home. The Navy is the only military arm set up by our Founders and its purpose was to defend THIS country, not any other country in the world. The Navy was specifically there to defend OUR freedom, not some other foreign country.

Really Pathetic

I was upset by this Ad as well. Democracy, Fair Treatment of all, will Obey the Orders of those Appointed OVER Me?

I would ask "What the heck is going on here?", but I already know. The Pentagon is wooing young undeveloped minds and developed bodies to go Kill and Die for those who wish to Centrally Plan everything (resources, land, people) they can conquer.

It is truly sad that such divisive and polarized people (our Government) has so many tools to shape the hearts and minds of our youth. They truly understand that "The Ends Justify the Means" while failing to recognize that "The Ends are a Product of the Means".

Parenting in our local communities has been replaced by Government rearing. The Product can only be destructive.

we the people not the Government

For the first thing this woman does not know the constitution. It is the Constitution for the united States of America. There are nine such similar constitutions out there but the original is the word for and the u on united is not capitalized.

and yes obey order by those appointed over me so long as those orders follow the Constitution for the united States of America.

it says to defend freedom and Democracy no where in the constitution does it say Democracy but Guarantees the Republican form of Government for each state. There is a big difference between the Two. Democracy is simple majority with the president as the head. A republic is the people the head and the president on the bottom and it takes a majority of the eligible people to vote to pass not just those voting. So if you do not vote it is a no vote. All laws have to be passed by the people not congress or senators of a state or federal. They have no authority over the people only the government employees.

and we are to defend us here not overseas or other countries.

But not only that but each of us by ourselves are to have arms and protect this country and state.

Thanks
May GOD Bless each and everyone.
I pray that God may see that Ron Paul will not be hurt or wounded, that he may become our next full two term President of the united States of America!

I well remember back a few decades ago

There were bill boards ( Air Force I believe ) showing a fighter jet soaring upward to the heavens with the caption "The sound of freedom"

That is no longer true ( if it ever was ) but that is the sound of terror to most of the world. American terrorists soaring overhead.

The real sound of freedom which I hear a lot, is coming from those fellers just down the way at the local gun club whose "sounds of freedom" can be heard every day!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

ROTFL...!!!

Ya..Ya...Like when I thought I signed the Navy contract for 2 years Reserves with a guaranteed school for CTI. It was in the 6th week of boot camp I found out I had enlisted for 4 years Active with 2 years Reserves and my guaranteed school for CTI was closed to women.

I pondered for those first 6 weeks why that recruiter stood up, pulled me to him and kissed me after signing that contract. I guess I filled his quota he so desperately needed. What did it matter to him that I didn't fully read that first contract and just believed his summary of it. The movie Private Benjamin didn't come out until 2 years later, which made me laugh at myself even more.

I read everything now, even if I don't understand what the heck I'm reading on that paper, I'll still read it and just tick off in the margin what needs to be questioned. It's amazing how many civilian public places tell me no one ever reads the papers given to them to sign. And it also amazes me how much they squirm and huff with impatience because I take my time reading it.

What's wrong with the commercial? Only the part that says "protecting freedom and democracy around the world". It's not the US Military's job to police the world. And the US is a Republic, why would we promote democracy? The rest of the commercial is just typical enhanced product advertising.

now, now. In all fairness

we do believe in free enterprise. The government corporation in DC does have a right to advertise their wares, just as any other for-profit corporation. It only seems bad because the wares being sold are murder and destruction.

I forgot to add

(sarc) Sorry, nobody understands my sarcasm.

The government has no rights,

The government has no rights, people do. I do not consent to the wars, the lies they are telling in that propaganda trash, or to the stealing of the money to pay for it.

Right on

Government's Just Powers come from the Consent of the Governed.

Rights are actions/behaviors that DO NOT require the permission of another to act/behave.

Privileges are actions/behaviors that Require the permission of another to act/behave.

Consent is Permission. So when the Government Acts/Behaves without Consent the Power is UNJUST.

Consent can only come from Free Will and those Dependent upon others (Parents, Strangers, Government) do not in practice have Free Will since it is another's Will that shapes their life/well being.

It is quite obvious that most of the Power the US Government has assumed is UNJUST because the US Government has made it MANDATORY that US Citizens become Dependent upon it.
