- Mostly my feet, occasionally a Tesla
So, the USS Gerald R. Ford is going to make a port visit to Oslo tomorrow, I bet that sends a message eastwards.
Yes, the USS Gerald R. Ford and it's Nimitz-class predecessors are pretty much the current material representation of Roosevelt's "big stick". Moscow knows really well that they don't have anything like that. All they have is the Admiral Kuznetsov, which is less aircraft carrier, more like a "Potemkin Village".As much as I hate the military complex that is the USA, it is helpful to keep dick taters quiet…. For the most part.
Tax them first!

I wonder what it was that they decided was too far over the line?
Probably speaking out against the one guy who presided over one of the houses of state congress while clearly drunk.
