Three Cheers for the US Navy...

It seems not only does the US Navy protect us from harm in the open waters but now it even protects us from amongst the truest evil known to humankind... Disney.

From AP: "The Walt Disney Co. said Wednesday that it has withdrawn its application to trademark the phrase "SEAL Team 6," the elite unit that killed Osama bin Laden, after the Navy moved to protect its rights and the entertainment giant endured a wave of criticism and late-night jibes. "

"Disney sought the trademark rights on May 3, two days after U.S. operatives raided a luxury compound in Pakistan and killed the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks. Disney's ABC subsidiary wanted to develop a TV show along the lines "NCIS" and "JAG," which are also real-life Navy units, and would have focused on the drama and heroism of the special forces members. But it drew flak for not only its rapid filing, but also for a trademark application that included items like Christmas stockings and snow globes".

By the way, I wasn't being sarcastic about the Navy.  I am genuinely happy they forced Disney to buckle. They are sincerely a most evil, greedy corporation with its tentacles in everything-- movies, music, books, amusement parks, hotels, television networks, etc.., and their attempt to trademark "SEAL Team 6" is just one of many examples of how F**king blood-money hungry this corporation is.

Now if only we could send the US Marines in to stop Disney from making movies...
