Opportunist . . .

. . . vultures

In a shameless display of greed, the Disney Company has applied for a trademark on "Seal Team Six."

And it only took them two days after the raid on Abbottabad.

The applications cover toys, games and playthings; gymnastic and sporting articles (except clothing); hand-held units for playing electronic games other than those adapted for use with an external display screen or monitor; Christmas stockings; Christmas tree ornaments and decorations; snow globes; clothing; footwear; headwear and entertainment services.

Disney has attempted to reserve the right to squeeze a dollar from just about anything  these brave men have done over their entire history as Seals in the U. S. Navy.

Because the Navy did not use the name in commerce, and because Seal Team Six is no longer the official name of the team, the money-grubbing bastards at Disney will probably succeed.

What next?
