Vote For TSSBP!

Voting for the 5th Annual MilBloggies is now open! The Stupid Shall Be Punished was nominated in the "Best U.S. Military Veteran Blog" category, along with a number of outstanding milblogs:

As you go through most of these blogs, you see that they generally post several insightful articles a day -- as opposed to my style, which seems to be posting two or three times a week and letting the commenters run free. You'll also see that a few of them have offered tasteful, humble requests for your vote. However, I'm a submariner, so I'm going the "make it personal" route -- that's the way I roll.

I don't expect to win this thing, but I'd really like to beat Neptunux Lex. Not only is he the only other Navy-centric guy on the list, he's also an Airdale who has been know to serve on ships with thousands of Skimmers. We're not going to let a Skimmer-Friend beat us Submariners, are we?

It looks like you can only vote once from each computer, but please feel free to encourage your friends, kids, and kid's friends with computer skillz to vote for The Stupid Shall Be Punished. You'll be glad you did. Voting ends Thursday, 28 April, at 1900 EDT.

Update 1020 30 Apr: Congratulations to Neptunus Lex and all the other winners!

Update 2023 02 May: I got a badge for being a finalist!

As many can see, I also post over at This Ain't Hell--I've known Jonn since about 2003. However, bubbleheads gotta stick with their own. Sorry Jonn, nothing personal.

"That's the way I roll."

Grammatically correct, but not the way the kids say it.

Typical bubblehead...

Here come the Brown Shoes!! :-)

While again voting for TSSP during the current balloting, I only ask that you would you be kind enough to assure us all that a former naval officer continues to personally maintain day-to-day administration of this blog?

There have been unusual indications as well as another's suggestion that TSSP's supervision is at times delegated to younger, less experienced 'hands'.

Thanking you in advance, JK.

What's really funny is when you guys get pissed off when we go below or find our way out & around your radar and surface sonar capabilities. ASW exercises can be somewhat entertaining on occasion.

Entertaining? Hell, if it wasn't for the restrictions put on the boat and all the other little "enhancers" we have to have on board when we play with the target pukes, it'd be downright hilarious.
