That's a bullet comment that appeared on a couple of my Non-Commissioned Officer Evaluation Reports (NCO-ER) over the years. I always liked it, actually, even though I was well aware it was a backhanded compliment.
So, I had to laugh when I realized I was stopped in traffic next to a candidate for a local city council seat. He had large posters fixed to each side of his truck. He had a US Army sticker and a "Viet Nam Veterans of America" sticker.
And two of those stupid pirate Jolly Roger stickers in the back window. The only one I could read said "Prepare To Be Boarded."
Like I said, I find his candor refreshing, but I won't be voting for him...
