From: Chief of Naval Operations

To: All Naval personnel

Subj: General Orders

In keeping with rapidly changing social mores the following actions are to be taken afloat immediately.

a. The Department is proud to announce the names for the new class of Destroyer. No longer will ships be named after famous battles, heroes, or prominent politicians. Many older ships will be renamed, and new ships will be named for prominent events, heroes and politicians who have furthered racial equality and LGBQT (and any other initials they add) relations in the country.

b. All older ships and all new construction will comply with the latest employment, equality, health, safety and human rights issues.

c. The Navy Department expects any present and future enemy to comply with the same high standards of behavior.

e. Adequate time out areas and safe spaces will be provided for delicate crewmembers to unwind.

f. Stress counselors and attorneys will be permanently assigned as well as members from the National Labor Relations Board.

g. Crews will be comprised of fifty percent each of men and women and will contain the correct balance of race, gender, sexual preferences and disabilities.

h. Crewmembers will work a maximum of 40 hours per week as per NLRB guidelines on working hours with at least a two entire day weekend. This will apply even in wartime.

k. In addition to other leisure time activities, a Gay Disco will be provided.

    Are we playing rip van winkle here and all of this is just a dream? Why can’t they just leave things alone when there is nothing wrong with them.
