Im surprised new Arleigh Burke hulls are being layed. I though they were going full Zumwalt and just upgrading the newer Arleigh Burkes.

Anyway RIP to those sailors. Things must have been pretty bad in those moments.

The Burkes being cheaper is the big reason. Plus the Navy doesn't really have the funding to develop a new destroyer as they've burned it all on a bunch of projects that haven't panned out well(Zumwalt, LCS, etc..) and are getting ready for the Ohio replacements.

Whenever you fuck with a long established symbol you are going to trigger a lot of people. Simple human nature, nothing to be surprised about.

Moving on...

I'm starting to think that this is the alt-right's version of "white-washing" now. Point out that someone who is something other than a "good proper evangelical" or just "American" and the alt-right gets triggered. They want the language controlled so that you can't mention any sort of fringe to show that they are hard working citizens just like them. All they want is that their own cliche has the lock down on what are "good hard working Americans" are.

It reminds me of when I pointed out how Baron von Steuben, a critical person involved in the foundation of the USA, is most likely (for the time period) a flaming homosexual. Unless you are out to bash feminism or liberalism, if you are LGBT you had best just be quiet. If you bash feminism? Then it's cool and edgy to celebrate how gay you are (like Milo does).
