Did You Know?

…that according this document available at to the Marine Corps Community Services Okinawa website, the General Schedule grade equivalencies were created to guide the treatment of civilian prisoners of war (HA! HAHAHAHAHA!!) according to the Geneva Convention?

…that the General Schedule grade equivalencies have nothing to do with supervisory abilities and everything to do with protocol comparisons? Being a GS-13 doesn’t make you a Lieutenant Commander; it just means you get to stand next to one in a diplomatic receiving line.

…that the General Schedule based more on seniority and length of service (meaning, how long you can pretend to be COMPETENT) than on merit (meaning, are you actually COMPETENT)?  The OPM has been trying to convert to a merit based scale for years, but…unions.

…that a Naval Academy graduate who is still a Lieutenant Commander at age 30 has generally topped out and knows he hasn’t achieved his potential, while a high school graduate who manages a GS-13 rate after 40 years of bouncing job to job is a post turtle?

Some people wake up after a Johnnie Walker blackout bender using third base as a pillow and think they hit a triple.

  1. I can't imagine a fat GS-13 being a prisoner of war and being told "No, you can only have one small jar of mayo." and responding with, "THAT'S CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT!!"

    I can't also imagine the same GS-13 being interviewed by his captors and being asked, "Wait, so all you do is write copy script? What do you really do? And why are you peeing your pants?"

    No, can't imagine that at all.

      1. Ok onlooker...is that a reference to a song?
        I know a song whose lyrics go:
        Bottle In Front Of Me
        Is LIke A Frontal Lobotomy

        It is possible that you are referencing a different work that the song writer is ALSO referencing and I just didn't know it...

    And yet has already been shown with official government documents (NPRC records, naval historical reports, photographic evidence) your service was not honest and your claims have no basis in the official records available.

    Bill your service was honest right up until you began embellishing on your achievements -- and the OFFICIAL RECORDS that were obtained are proof your claims are bogus. You have not offered any proof from an official source to refute the documents presented -- you simply saying "I'm right! I'm right! I'm right!" over and over again is not proof.

    You are a liar and a bad one at that.

    Oh... but don't worry there are more documents coming out soon enough in regards to your military service and then we will see what kind of tune you will start singing and how it matches up to all of your well documented previous tweets, pod casts, blog posts and forum posts.

    In fairness you have until say, noon CDT Saturday 10 October 2015, to "refine" your previous claims and statements about your military service, the awards you are authorized to wear, your role in Operation FLUID DRIVE and apologize for embellishing on your military career. This is your chance to live up to those Navy Core Values...

    I'm not exactly holding my breath though.

    Balls in you court Bill.

    Best.

      1. Corpsmen have always been armed since WWII.

        Beginning in WWII and running through the Korean War corpsmen were armed with either the M1911 or M1 Carbine but could use the weapons only in the defense of themselves or their patients.

        During the Vietnam War and in to the late 1970's Corpsmen were armed with the M1911 but could also carry the M14 or M16 rifles. (http://libertyyes.homestead.com/Doc-Ron-Mosbaugh.html)

        In the modern era Corpsmen are armed with the M9 pistol and/or the M4 carbine.

        medical personnel who uses their weapons in an offensive fashion (not to defend themselves or their patients) lose their protection under the Geneva Convention.

  4. He left out that the Navy and the United States Government didnt know that He’s a serial adjudicated harasser with associations with violent felons and convicted pedophiles. He has harassed dead babies, live babies, underage children and solicited the rape of a grieving mother and her underage daughters. Oh and he threatened to rape a child for calling him a bad DJ on XMfan.

    If they knew this they would have probably just thrown him in jail

      1. On one of my husband's (or a friend of ours, I can't remember who was telling the story) boat's underways, a young man was found to have been stealing from his crewmates. I gather he fell up ladders several times while being taken to see the CO. I also understand that this isn't an uncommon occurance among those who have been deemed to have violated their shipmates' trust.

      4. LG, my husband's story is that they put a thief in the missile tubes (Ohio class nuke) and flooded them halfway with water. They supposedly had to have a helicopter come out and get the guy so the crew didn't kill him.

        Then again, my husband is as much of a fabulist as Bill is, so IDK how much is true. Just one more reason for him to soon be the ex.

      5. Ashterah, I don't know, but believe that would be a tall story. I don't think that an Ohio class missile sub would have an empty missile tube on deployment. It would be full of missile. And given that not knowing where they are is a key component to their usefulness, I doubt they would have given the other side a clue by surfacing within helicopter range.

    Actually I have similar life experience as you. I was a GS-12 at 29 years of age. I was also an Army Officer. Neither of these are achievements. They are just titles. The achievements are what you do with your life for the betterment of others. For example: My life was to make a better life for my kids, and give them the skills to be good people.

    How would I do that if all I do is get protection orders against me from complete strangers?

    How does that work if my children have nothing to do with me?

    How does that work when my best friend is a convicted terrorist felon who is also a pedophile?

    How does that work when I write stories about cub scouts being raped?

    But, you know, you were a GS-13 editing copy.

    "If the Naval History from 6th Fleet documents things other than the way I have presented them over the years then it must be true. Would the US Navy Historical Archives lie?"

    "If NPRC says I'm entitled to three awards (NDSM and two Good Conduct Medals) for my service it must be true. Would NPRC lie?"

    "If NPRC cannot provide proof for my claims I have made over the years you better check their ideology! They are trying to oppress my liberal views!"

    Anyone else having trouble believing Hoggy's cock and pig story about scaring away people with his big shiny, manly guns? Thought so.

    cock and pig? Isn't that supposed to be cock and bull? (The meaning and origin of the expression: A cock and bull story)

    But a sharp witty GS-13 like The Blob apparently has a problem with the word 'bull.' Maybe it's because he took a walk on the WILD side. Then again, maybe it's because he projects and pig is a better descriptor of his true self.

    1. He also never honest about his Navy service, claiming accolades for which he didn't qualify. In fact, he seems rather boastful about continuing the lie. A lowlife craves attention through dishonesty.

    2. He's both proud of his Navy service AND of his friendship and alliance with a convict who brags about sabotaging materiel destined for the military.

      Gotta wonder, if Kimberlin really did sabotage some wiring, if anyone was killed as a result. And how quickly Bullshit Bill would forgive him and say he's paid his debt to society.
