Bummed by Buffoonry
As an old mentor of mine once said, the script never changes in the Navy, just the actors do. Have been going through a lot of issues at work, where the powers that be are going to take something that is not broken and try to fix it. Knowing I'm right and others who are saying the same thing is not good enough. The elephants are involved now and so something that could have been solved quite easily with a bunch of bubbas around the table, will now take a blue ribbon commission that will propose sweeping changes and in the process destroy any progress that has been made.
That's appropriate though, because in Rummy and V. Clark's world its how things work. Change is good they say. Maybe, but change just for change sake is plain stupid. I am a big believer in the old adage, if its not broke, don't fix it. That used to be a well accepted truth, now its considered a sign of non-conformist thinking. Thanks guys, thanks for nothing.
Can you tell I'm more than a little bit frustrated? You bet, because in the end good guys get screwed when this is done. I was looking at my resume last night, maybe I need to look at it again and get some feelers on the street.
Thanks for listening........
