History repeats itself. Pearl Harbor is vulnerable to attack! Man all battle stations. Cancel shore leave. Some Pearl Harbor DOD civilian employees might have to take a day off every week or so (FYI, most of those employees earn 39 days of leave each year; with flextime options they are not at their work stations more than a day a week as is).

And if that doesn't symbolize for the nation that, far from overstating anything, it is zeroing in on a graphic example of what happens when we fail to meet our responsibilities congressionally.
