DADT – a definite discrimination and should be repealed. I’d feel just as safe with a gay or lesbian in the military. I think I heard someplace (don’t quote me on this), up to 7% of the current force is gay and I’ve not heard of any gay or lesbian person accused of sexual assault on a fellow military person but lots of stories of straight guys attacking and raping women soldiers.
WikiLeaks – Assange should be charged with Treason. What he is posting is stolen information and could cause harm to the United States over a period of time. The people providing him with this “information” should also be charged. There is a fine line between government transparency and providing secret privileged information to the general public. Assange crossed the line.
The breakup/divorce of celebrities is NOT BREAKING NEWS! Stopping the presses and breaking in on tv shows to announce Tony Park and Eva Longoria are getting divorced does not justify the attention it is getting. Same with Lindsey Lohan, Brittany Spears, Kate Gosselin, and any number of D, C, B, A-Rated celebrities. That is entertainment news, not breaking-headline news.
The next person to say my 17 1/2 yr old should be put down because he is old will be slapped upside the head. Frankie dog is not in any pain. He walks and jumps around at times like a puppy. He can’t see out of one eye, is 3/4 blind in the other, and stone deaf but that is all. My husband has 10 times the pain my dog has and no one suggests he be put down.
Sounds like Obama is getting a lot of static for visiting the troops in Afghanistan today. I had high hopes for Obama when he became President, but he is so busy fighting everybody about everything he doesn’t have a chance. His own party harasses him and says they will go against him if he works with the Republicans. He won’t be around after 2012 but not because he is a bad President. I think history will find he tried to do a lot of good for the United States, but due to constant in-fighting in the Senate and Congress he didn’t have a chance.
There are a lot of people driving on the roads who should not be allowed to drive. I suggest we start re-testing everyone every 2 years, and every year after the age of 60. You need to pass a 100-question written test and a 30 mile driving test that includes driving through school zones, interstates, and two-lane highways.
Bicyclists have no business riding bikes on the streets with no shoulders.
That covers it for now, more later on.
