I'm confused...a month or so ago, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Staff Chairman Adm. Michael Mullen were saying it is time to remove Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Both expressed their opinions eloquently with true passion and resolve. Now they're saying in regards to any legislation that would actually remove it, "I hope Congress will not do so, as it would send a very damaging message to our men and women in uniform that in essence their views, concerns, and perspectives do not matter on an issue with such a direct impact and consequence for them and their families." WTF!? Who got to them? Women serving on a submarine...no problem! Yahoo! says the Navy (boys will be boys and rape will not be a crime under water...don't you know). But, let gays actually be open about who they are, hell no! The little homophobes need to adjust because in their own paranoia, they think every gay person wants to look at their pee pee. This country is so f***ed up, I'm starting to lose any way to describe how f***ing ignorant we are as a group. I actually let some moron on Huffington Post have it the other day (and was fanned twice) who seems to think gay people can't control themselves and the gay community will demand open displays of affection. Who the hell believes that? Any ass hole who seriously thinks anyone in the military who has been trained in disipline of every nature would put anything at risk makes GWB look competent. All of our allies have already dealt with this issue and have had no problems with disipline or morale. Another difficulty the gay community faces is our own media. People like the idiot I responded to see the Pride Parades on tv once a year and think all gay men wear feathers and leather and all gay women have shaved heads and wear construction boots. The msm didn't cover the hearings in California over Prop. 8 where you would've actually seen gay couples...who look just like everyone else. The media loves making gays a freak show. Liberal media, my ass. It's 2010...grow up America!
In case you missed the snafu in Bristol Palin's sworn testimoney in the Knoxville, TN trial of the college student who hacked Sarah Palin's email account, here's the gist. Bristol said under sworn testimoney that she was distressed to see pictures of "her" baby that were in her mothers email account being circulated! The snafu? Sarah Palin's email account was hacked on December 15th 2008: Tripp Palin, son of Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston wasn't born until December 28th 2008! It appears that Bristol Palin, under oath inadvertently gave up the goods on Mommy Dearest while unknowingly admitting that she (Bristol) is actually the mother of Trig Palin. One more clue that the whole pregnant Sarah thing was a LIE! Abstinence only really seems to be having some setbacks in Alaska.
While I'm sure my past articles have already made my opinion pretty clear, let me make it crystal clear - corporate America sucks. We live in a world where job well done means, "if you pulled it off, we can do it cheaper and screw you deeper." I hate this newfangled world of "lean." Good people don't matter, we are an end to their means. The only thing these jerks look at is their bottom line...on their non-reality based spreadsheet. It doesn't help when candyass "managers" think that obeying and bowing to their superior lords' every whim, without question will solidify their own security. I doubt it. Maybe I'm wrong, but my personal opinion is that I'd have more respect for someone who stood up to me than just said, "yes master" at every turn. If there really was a God, these creeps would be paying for their destruction of the American Dream and their own self-interests. We are doomed.
Did I mention the Red Sox still suck?
