Recruiting

hunter-falls-asleep-1

One of my best buds in the Corps missed out on the easiest duty ever! It's pretty funny to me merely because of the way he tells it. He had received orders for recruiting, which many people dread, but pulling all the stops out he got his orders for Texas. And if there's one thing the Marine Corps doesn't need, it's more Texans. No offense or anything but the Corps is comprised of, in my limited experience, a vast majority of Texans. Recruiting in Texas is like going hunting at the … [Read more...]

TX Judge’s child abuse video brings out fans of child abuse

I was reading the r/offbeat subreddit a few hours ago. I noticed that reddit was hopping all over the story of Texas Judge William Adams - who repeatedly beat his 16 year old daughter with a belt in a disturbing videotape. I clicked through to the story and I saw so many comments like this: I really wish I could click on Report abuse and CPS would show up at these people's houses, looking for signs of being beaten with a Bible Belt. This is way beyond 'spanking' and 'smacking' a … [Read more...]

Keep evangelism and politics out of my military funeral, sign this.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the fabrication of a controversy surrounding military funerals for veterans in Texas (my home state). Three Congressmen from Texas are in the middle of a deceptive media blitz. They are ‘standing up for’ a few private groups who like to officially incorporate their Christian prayer and ceremonies at the funerals of military veterans. The problem is, well… there is no problem! There is no ban of mentioning 'God' or 'Jesus' at funerals for veterans. These … [Read more...]

TX Congressmen to force Christian prayer over my dead body.

Texas lawmakers want Christian groups to be permitted to use Christian themes, prayers, speeches *without seeking consent* in every single military veteran funeral statewide. But that's not how the story is being told. I love being in the military, and I consider it an honor to serve this country. It makes me sad to hear about something like this. At least three Texas-based U.S. congressmen (all of whom self-identify with the Tea Party) are using military funerals for political gain: Ted Poe … [Read more...]
