"On My Last Gay Nerve", Eye Candy

Hey Blogger Friends, we are at our second installment of "On My Last Gay Nerve!!" Sundays, I am going to post things that have either pissed me off along the week, or just things I have been thinking about that gets me upset or I dont understand. Please feel free to agree, disagree, add your own two cents, or give your own rant of a topic of your choosing. I look forward to your comments and emails. Hopefully this will act as a cathartic outburst to start out our week, get rid of all the bad energy by unloading whats on our proverbial chest's. It sure beats a rousing chorus of Kum-By-Ya!!.

You know what gets on my last gay nerve?? The government that doesnt think I have enough self control to keep MY dick in MY pants and YOUR dick out of MY mouth. Sorry for the vulgarities, but I have had it up to here with the military thinking that gays and lesbians should not serve in the military, because our sexuality would be too distracting to ourselves and other service members........BULLSH*T!! Hey, I enjoy looking at a hot guy in uniform as much as the next homo, but I think I can figure out if I am cruising the streets of Iraq or Afghanistan looking for mines and sh*t, how you look in uniform is the LEAST of my worries.

Members of SOULFORCE, the group started by the students that went around to America's Conservative colleges and universities this Spring teaching diversity, is at it again. In the, "Right to Serve" campaign, openly gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender young adults who are willing to serve will attempt to enlist in the military in thirty-one cities across the country. The military's current "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, signed into law by President Clinton in 1993, is government-sanctioned discrimination. Over 10,000 soldiers have been discharged under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Training replacements for those discharged, including more than 80 critical linguists, has cost the American taxpayers at least $364 million. They have been to over 3 cities so far and have been shown the door every time.

Yet I read in the paper today about the government/military's "back-door draft," keeping more and more American soldiers in back to back, and extended tours of duty in the fight on terror. The numbers have been between 10 and 14 thousand troops that have been "re-commisioned", after thinking that their service time was done and over with. When President Nixon eliminated the draft, the leading military minds of the time said that they could not see another draft necessary ever, unless we had a prolonged war lasting over 6 months and utilizing more than 100,000 troops. Guess what kids, we are in over 3 years, and still have over 140,000 troops in Iraq alone. If you count President Bush calling for a "War On Terror," right after September 11th, that means on the fifth anniversary in a couple weeks this war will be longer than World War II, the Korean War, The Civil War, and a few more.

Wake up and smell the napalm and get your heads out of your asses military peoples. Gays and Lesbians who are qualified in their positions, deserve the same respect, duty and placement of our heterosexual counterparts. I would feel much safer with a ticked off Lesbian with an Assault Rifle, than a tired Marine on his third mandatory deployment extension, anyday. So thats what's on my last gay nerve this week blogger friends, I look forward to hearing from you.

Todays Eye Candy I found while visiting one of my favorite sites, \\ \\OT Guys, Have a great week blogger friends.............GG
