Sniper Vandalism on Military Targets

Posted by madjillmom on November 5, 2010

I have a suspicion that the sniper vandalism on buildings with military ties (Marine Museum, Pentagon, Marine Recruiting Offices, Coast Guard Recruiting Offices) has something to do with “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.  The first few target were associated with the Marines.  The Marine Commandant is the only high-up that has publicly stated that he is not in favor of the repeal of DADT.  Also, the gun shots started about the same time as the judge suspended DADT and the Obama admin filed to have that ruling suspended.

I think I would feel better if it was DADT than something else much uglier.

Lady GAGA, Military Expert

Posted by madjillmom on September 20, 2010

I remain conflicted about the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy of the military.  Now, I have a screaming Lady GaGa to guide my conscience and the lives of the military.  She tells those in the military who don’t want to defend the right of gays to serve openly in the military, to get the hell out.  I guess she is a little unclear on that time commitment that those in the military have to go by.  Since she is obviously an expert on the military, perhaps we should call her General GaGa.

I can’t wait to see the new recruiting poster featuring Lady GaGa.  She’ll have long lines of people rushing the recruiting stations for a chance to be all that they can be outside of the closet.

Elena Kagen

How awful to have your unknown sexual preference so openly speculated upon. How awful to have yourself un-outed by friends. It is a weird world we live in.

How awful to punish the military and deny access to them. How foolish to feel that the students of Harvard are too stupid to make their own decisions regarding Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. How embarrassing to come out on the wrong side of a Supreme Court unanimous decision in this day an age. Is that a dis-qualifier?
