I am so proud of President Obama for successfully getting the DADT policy repealed!! This is a BIG moment and he deserves all the shine for not backing down to the damn ridiculous conservative interests (FINALLY) and handling it during a lame duck session.
It’s still so crazy to me that over 14,000 military personnel were discharged from service solely as a result of that archaic homophobic ass policy! As if we can afford to be kicking folks out of the military while we’re fighting all these senseless wars.
If you’re willing to put your life on the line to protect the citizens of this country and our freedoms here and abroad, you’re better than most of us (myself included). So at the very least, we should all respect your right to fall in love with whomever you choose.
Basic Hometraining Rule 101: Before you say something negative, it’s important to lead with a positive.
Wow, its a hard week for the Obamas, huh?
Raise your hand if you managed to get up at the crack of dawn (approximately 6:10am for those on the east coast) to watch President Obama’s speech in Cairo live? Yeah, me neither.
Damn Elizabeth Edwards! Why don’t you tell us how you really feel about your husband’s affair, mistress and the illegitimate daughter he now has??
And the Obama momentum continues…
Okay I have to take a moment to shout out one of my friends that making the magic happen despite all the drama and confusion going on with this unstable economy… my girl Melissa.
