Ok so halfway through my tour over here in the desert we got a new commander. Yesterday was his newcomers briefing. Now I didn’t have to go seeing as how I am leaving in a little bit. If I didn’t have faith in our leadership before this definitely confirmed that I will probably never have great faith in our leadership. This is part of the handout he gave to the new comers.

Leadership Philosophy:

- My job is to take care of you, mentor you and nurture you, provide the resources needed, stay out of your way, and grow the next generation of AF leaders (not a bad start. I am liking where this is going. I don’t like the whole micromanagement thing.)
- We will have fun (hey I am all about fun. Ask anyone that knows me)
- I will always trust you…..until you prove yourself untrustworthy (I can take that)
- I hold everyone accountable for their duties and responsibilities ( as it should be)

Dislikes/Pet Peeves:

- Not being kept updated on status (hey if I had to answer to his boss this would be a pet peeve of mine)
- Being surprised by my boss ( surprises in the military are not liked by higher ups because they usually mean trouble)
- Learning that bad news was hidden – bad news is NOT like fin wine…it does NOT get better with age (ok so you want to know when shit goes wrong. Fair enough)
- Lies (who really likes those?)
- Folks without team spirit (hey in the desert team spirit is just about the only thing to keep you going)

- Say it loud and with confidence and it will be believed (huh? I HAVE A 12” PENIS!!!! You believe me?)
- If everything is important, then nothing is important ( kinda get that one since everything can’t be important)
- A HOOAH and a nod can carry you an long way in life (I got you sometimes you need to smile and nod and just walk away)
- You can do twice as much….if you half-ass everything (The FUCK you say? You are telling me to slack shit off and do more than do something 100%?)
- Consistency is better than accuracy (Ummm so if I do something shitty all the time that is a good thing? Well you are making my job a lot easier.)
- There is an art to knowing when to shut up ( you should have done that about 6 lines ago)

This really has me glad that I am leaving seeing as the crew that is here to replace us will be living by his HIS-isms. There is no way they are going to survive this. Hey maybe that is why he gets the big bucks and I get paid shit to sit and do what he says. But at least I can say I am glad he is not in charge of a fighting unit in Iraq or they wouldn’t have a chance.

Hey! If you had the choice of being the top scientist in your field or getting Mad Cow, which would you choose?

Why Mad Cow? Because it's a brain disease. I'll leave you to put the rest of the legos together.

Bitch please, we invented that disease.

I thought you were going to talk about leading the looting in New Orleans.

This was good too.

Did I just cross the line?

+ 1 for the pic.
Does anyone really pay attention to those leadership briefings? Sounds like a bunch of BS. And if anyone knows BS, it's me. I'm the king of spouting BS.

You should call him Mad Cow like the Captain on Over There.

- You can do twice as much....if you half-ass everything
I could see this as an attempt at sarcasm

- Consistency is better than accuracy
But this concerns me.

"I will probably never have great faith in our leadership."

Government work will do that to you.
