Pentagon Report Says Gays No Harm

The Pentagon's top leaders declared in a report released on Tuesday that gay troops can serve openly in the armed forces without harming the military's ability to fight. The study called for the 17-year-old "don't ask, don't tell" ban to be scrapped and pointed to a new survey that showed most troops wouldn't mind. Note to political leaders: Let's listen to the survey of troops actually serving in the armed forces and move into the year 2010 please and get rid of this ridiculous law. Thanks!

Jennifer Grey Wins Dancing With The Stars

I have never been a big fan of the show, but with Bristol Palin somehow being in the finals, I am glad to announce that Jennifer Grey and her partner Derek Hough have won season 11 of DWTS. She still looks good, even at 50. Congrats!

'Sarah Palin's Alaska" Sucks It Up In Week 2

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" set a TLC ratings record when it debuted to 5 million viewers last week, but the second episode showed a huge drop-off in viewership. Episode two of the Palin reality show averaged just 3 million viewers, down 40% from the previous week. This makes me smile on the outside and inside!!! To top it off too, the median age of the show's viewers is 57 years old. Just the old, crazy Tea Party followers left around supporting the psycho. Let's hope they cancel it before too long.

Truly Inspiring

A mother had to defend her five-year-old son's choice to go as Daphne from Scooby Doo for Halloween. What she writes is truly inspiring and made me cry. I loved the, "I am not worried that your son will grow up to be an actual ninja so back off" and the ending made me cry, but duh. The kid is a total cutie and it is Halloween, a chance for one and all to dress up and be someone for a day/night. The kid is five and wants to explore things and those mothers that ridiculed this mother for letting him dress this way, shame on them. I hope their kids grow up to be fine living in a house full of shame and hatred.

Andrew Shirvell Is A Goner

In something that was long overdue, Andrew Shirvell, assistant attorney general for Michigan, was fired from his position for his actions against Chris Armstrong, the openly gay student assembly president at University of Michigan. Shirvell was pretty much stalking and harassing this man and now he has no job because of it...glad to hear it!

This Is Why I Hate Walmart

The 2500 workers at the Anowara Apparels factory in Bangladesh spend all day sewing jeans, primarily for the Faded Glory brand of clothes sold at Walmart. They are 90% young women, some with families to support and others trying to simply scrape a living together. The women make between 11 and 17 cents an hour sewing jeans, and they're expected to produce at least ten pairs an hour. That means they make less than two pennies for each pair of jeans they sew.

To make matters worse, Walmart has been lobbying against a government-supported wage increase, which would bump the workers up to 35 cents an hour. They can't pay the workers who sew the jeans they sell in the store 35 cents an hour??? Stop shopping there people!!!!
