In the town where i was born.. we bought some lemons
Well, Canada Keeps impressing me!!!
Get this, we spent, our country, Canada, 890 million dollars
to buy 4 Russian submarines from the British.
Turns out they are lemons.
What do I mean when I say they are lemons? They do not submerge!!!
Isn’t that kind of the point in saying you own a
submarine? I mean, people won’t just come over to your house if your submarine doesn’t go underwater. I don’t think were buying them for their roomy interiors or because we can water ski behind them!
They don’t go under water? Are you serious? Who’s running this F@#&ing ship? People!
Awaken from your slumber!
It’s this kind of shit that’s destroying the country! It’s this kind of madness and careless spending that should motivate us to find our voices.
We have 890 million to blow on some fancy metal (soon to be Ontario
place attraction). A rusted out, hand me down from a country who once sent an angry boxer to kill Apollo creed, but we don’t have enough money for things like schools, hospitals and police officers,
Fuck teachers, cut the fire department staff, but I think we need another expensive ass sub to protect us from the Loch Ness monster and that bully who keeps swiping my shorts underwater (but not too deep, remember, they don’t submerge).
Why not just build some new ones ourselves? Wouldn’t that create a bunch of jobs and put money back into our economy?
In case you didn’t know, the subs have more rust than hill-billy’s front yard. At least it’s giving some jobs to the welders. That’s only gonna cost a few more million to fix.
Weld those cracks bitches!!!
Who the hell negotiated this deal? Next time send my father. He’s never bought a submarine, but he knows how much rust is too much! They practically
had the periscope held together with Bondo and order forms for newer steel. What happened at that deal? Did Canada just show up and were glad that there were some subs left? Don’t wanna go all that way and come home empty handed, right?
The secret is not to let on how much you want the thing.
Britain was probably thinking, “I say! There’s absolutely no way they are going to
buy these metal rusty tombs and trust their soldier’s lives underwater in them.”
And our Canadian representative shouted, “Ohh, look they have a Blue one!”
The British took them out of service in 1994!!
The report also said, “Repairs to the pressure hull are
highly desirable from a hull husbandry (careful mangement or conservation of resources) point of view, they are not absolutely necessary.”
Not absolutely necessary!!!!!!??? Sure I guess… kind of like being really drunk
at bar and having the chance to bang Lindsay Lohan. You would highly prefer to have a condom, but it’s not absolutely necessary. You might actually still get rust as a side
I bet that 890 million lined someones pockets nicely.
The government is claiming, “It’s ok! We can still use them as training vehicles.”Soooo now, instead of having submergible vehicles, we have 4, floating, 890 million dollar bath tubs to prepare our sailors for a battle
that would have to end up being no deeper than an intense match of Marco Polo.
Stop this ridiculous spending (so we look cool) on vehicles
of war (From what I can tell subs are mainly used for war and if we even went
to war we would have old, outdated subs vs. “technology superior” 30 years newer
subs that can actually go under water).
You know we have a whole occupy movement going on right now
all over the world because of shit like this. This keeps up and we will all be
sunk, except the subs… they float.
