Gay Troops Need to Change Diapers on the Battlefield

I don't even think this needs commentary, take a look...

Taking breaks on the combat field to change diapers all because their treacherous sin causes them to lose control of their bowels.

Should the Military Have Allowed Bud Commercial?

First, if you missed the commercial, here it is: 

At first, the commercial seems really innocent... and heartwarming, but as Phillip Carter pointed out today in Foreign Policy  ..... The military has strict regulations that cannot "suggest official endorsement or preferential treatment" of any "non-Federal entity, event, product, service, or enterprise." 

What would happen if the military would have said no to one beer and allowed Budweiser.  Carter's article is really interesting and I highly recommend reading it.

What do you think?  Do you think this commercial should have been done with military permission?  

Just Do It!

This is probably the best article I have read in a LONG time about just going after your dreams and forgetting what other people think!  A MUST read: 

It’s impossible to live up to everyone’s expectations.
There will always be people — no matter what we say or how we treat them — that will judge us. Whether you’re at the gym, at work, taking the train, or even online playing Call of Duty. Even now it‘s happening. You will never be able to stop people from judging you, but you can stop it from affecting you.

Think about the worst thing that could possibly happen when someone is judging you or what you’re doing.

I guarantee that chances are — nothing will happen. Absolutely nothing. No one is going to go out of their busy lives to confront us, or even react for that matter. Because as I mentioned before, no one actually cares. What will happen, is that these people will actually respect you for claiming your ground. They may disagree with you, but they’ll respect you.

Start standing up for what you believe in — causes, opinions, anything. You’re going to have people that disagree with you anyways, so why not express how you truly feel?

Update on my Puppy Monster

As most of you know, I adopted an adorable puppy... She is an alaskan klee kai and I named her Naya.

I took her to visit family during Christmas and she ran away with 10 minutes of being at the farm... It took 6 days to catch her and we had to use a live coyote trap to catch her cause she wouldn't let us approach her... Here is a picture of her when we finally caught her!

She refuses to be contained, even today she chewed up her harness!

The Air Force officer and former OutServe-SLDN board member explains why he left the organization—and his plans for the future

The rumors, accusations, and innuendo surrounding the resignation of OutServe-SLDN Executive Director Allyson Robinson less than a year after she was named the head of the largest LGBT organization working for equality in the military have been raging for several weeks now. That was followed by the resignation of Lt. Josh Seefried, one of the co-founders of OutServe, from its board. "Three years ago, when I started OutServe, I didn't know what the Human Rights Campaign was, and now I've gotten to see a whole cycle of… I've had a helluva roller coaster on this," Seefried said, during his first inteview since news of the organizations financial and leadership troubles emerged.
