THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS FROM AN AMERICAN Merchant Mariner

I don't get it....
So our elite, Ivy League-educated president wants it so that you need to show photo ID to buy god-damned drain cleaner, but not to cast a vote? Now, granted, when presented with ridiculous and spurious documents dreamed up by foreign-owned tanker companies, I usually sign my name "Abraham Lincoln" or "M. Mouse" but for some reason it would make more sense to want to be sure that the people voting are who they say they are. I get asked my social security number when I want to check the balance on my fucking cable bill, and yet the 'Progressives' want Comcast to have better security than the goddamn polling employees.
I am Paul B, and I spend most of my life at sea. Ships, Science, the life of a mariner, biology and (mostly) true stories of life among the best and the worst people in the world, the United States Merchant Marines. You'll find it here, maybe. You'll definitely find rants, raves and discussion on life aboard a merchant ship. Come back and see the Brazilian girls, too, who show up fairly regularly.
