Why does the United States need a navy?
This is a Kirk-split-by-the-transporter question.The stated question, "Why does the United States need a navy?" and the inferred question, "Why does the United States have the Navy?"I wish I could find the quotable-someone who said that our greatest allies are the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Maybe Will Rogers, maybe Benjamin Franklin. It was someone wry, anyway. But we know why we have a navy: the founding fathers foresaw more danger from the sea than from the land and legislated measures to mitigate it. Later, it turned out that more navy was going to help commerce flow. History continued to show how US interests were increasingly extra-territorial, how the Navy helped grease the economic wheels. While WW1 was an iffy justification of global sea power, WW2 was the defining moment for having a world-class, planet-spanning navy. So, we need a navy to protect our shores and protect our trade, that much is pretty clear. But why do we need the Navy, the monstrous fleets that blanket the watery depths with criss-crossing wakes and pointy bits aiming this way and that? Well, we don't. At least not primarily. We could beef up the Coast Guard and develop some pretty impressive area denial weapons and just pay others to protect our shipping when it's out of our range. Why do we have the current US Navy? The rest of the world needs it. After WW1, the US went back into relative isolation. An island unto ourselves, young America didn't want to involve itself with old-world dysfunction. We had plenty of our own, but were too gun-shy to burden ourselves with others' problems, already feeling like 1917-18 was a mistake. After the global devastation of WW2, the US decided that for reasons of self-interest, it was no longer wise to act as if the world's troubles wouldn't also affect America. Many of the other nations around the world, too, mistrusted the US least of the Great Powers, seeing fewer tendencies to empire. As the bi-polar world of the Cold War grew, many other nations allowed the two primary belligerents to act as proxy defenders, keeping the overall armies and navies to a relatively low number. It continues today. The US Navy is specifically requested by many nations to keep a presence in their waters. Treaties define ever-increasing amounts of support from US sea power. The onerous financial strain is starting to tell, however, and we're having to reduce our military interactions across the board. The fear now is that the rest of the world's military spending may rise to fill the perceived gap in US involvement. This hasn't been good in the past and few are enthusiastic about it now. We'll just have to see how things turn out—like we always do.
How much do you have to pay to leave the Indian Coast Guard Service? I am an assistant commandant in training.
If you're still at INA you don't need to pay anything. If you're at sub courses then you have to pay a certain amount as per your bond if you want to leave before 5 years of service. No again, it depends on case to case basis as to why you want to leave.

How much can you make with Amazon's affiliate program?
What David Rachford is saying is kind of right, but not 100% right so I want to correct it. (Updated for 2018.)I also want to add my own personal story so bear with me here :)Personal StoryI created my first Amazon Affiliate site in February of 2015.I read a ton of posts and journeys about it and finally dove in.I found a great niche that no one tried to rank in, created my site, and actually got some sales!The cool thing isn't the sales though.It's how much I learned.I now knew how to do keyword research, how to write content, how to do SEO, and much more.I wasn't the best at it, but I kept learning and now I'm getting results like these:Obviously not as great considering that there are people making $10,000+ a month, but I'm pretty happy with making around $1,000 per month with a couple sites I created when I had free time from high school, homework, sports, and college apps.The AnswerYou can make anywhere from $0 to $25,000 per month.Will you make $25,000 per month if you're just starting out?No.You'll be lucky to make $5 in your first month or two.However as you learn, grow, create more sites, and write more content it's definitely possible to get to a high level of income from Amazon Affiliate.I got to $1,000 in a year with about 20-40 hours of work per month. That's 140-280 hours total.Amazon CommissionsAmazon does pay a 4-8.5% commission on sales, and it used to depend on how many products you sell per month, but not anymore.Now you get a certain % for each product based on the category the product is in.3% for toys.5.5% for outdoor products and tools.7% for apparel, jewelry, luggage, and accessories.8% for furniture, home improvement, pet products, and pantry.The Issues With AmazonWith all of that said, I moved away from Amazon and I don’t think Amazon is the best way of making money online.And no, I’m not going to tell you how I have a $999 course with the newest, best method of making money online.Amazon affiliate is great because ANYONE can make money with it with ease, but it’s also terrible for the following reasons:Since anyone can do it, competition is high. Everyone wants to make money, and everyone wants easy money!You are 100% dependent on Amazon. If Amazon gets rid of their affiliate program, you can try joining a different one, but you’ll likely lose A LOT of your income!Lower potential income compared to other ventures.Is it bad to start an Amazon affiliate business?Definitely not, but I want you to be aware of the potential issues.What I RecommendI’ll tell you something crazy:Don’t start another blog that is the same as everything out thereDon’t write another crappy book and self-publish it in order to “become an authority” in a random industry.And don’t keep searching for the magic bullet or the secret for making money online. Gurus will keep telling you that their course is THE key and their newest method is guaranteed to make you money, but in the end they are the only ones who make money. AND most gurus have no idea what they’re talking about anyway.Instead do the following:Read The Millionaire Fastlane and Unscripted. (Not hyperlinked because if you can’t put in the effort to do a Google search, then you won’t be able to put in the effort to succeed.)Follow the advice in that book.Take ACTION. (Do something. Anything.)If you have any questions feel free to ask! I know there's some stuff I might've missed, but I hope you found it useful!You can also read more about my journey from $0 to nearly $2,000 per month with Amazon on my website.
