Dungy

Tony’s D on Micheal Sam

The big story today is former head coach Tony Dungy telling the world that he would not have drafted Micheal Sam out of not wanting to deal with the whole first openly gay player thing. On some level I understand what he means. I don’t think the man is a homophobic person, but just doesn’t want to deal with the media distraction it would bring by drafting Micheal Sam.

“I wouldn’t have taken him. Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.”

In just looking at it on a superficial level I take his words and move on, it’s really not that big of a fuckin deal to me. But then I remember, wasn’t this the same guy vouching for Micheal Vick’s return to the NFL after being convicted of brutally killing, beating, and fighting dogs? You’re telling me that you would stand behind that murderer and choose to withstand the media distraction that that whole fiasco brought on but a gay player would too much?

I’m not offended by his opinion as he has the right to it, but the more I think about it the more I’m just flat out annoyed by it. In what fuckin world is sticking your dick in your consenting partner’s ass a bigger headache media wise than a man who murders dogs!?

With all that I haven’t even gotten to the portion about Tony Dungy being an African American, it wasn’t too long ago that white owners were worried about the distractions of adding the first black player to their team.

Have your opinions, whatever they may be. But at least be consistent when you decide to open your mouth.

Retirement

I went to a retirement party at work yesterday and it felt like a fuckin funeral. Some people go up and say honest things about you while other show up and lie their fuckin ass off as if you were best friends the last 20 or 30 years. One woman gave a speech about how great the retiree’s work ethic was. I nearly fuckin burst out laughing at how much bullshit I was hearing. This was the same motherfucker that would fall asleep at her desk just because she was either tired or not feeling well. Ridiculous!

Traitor?

Homeland

I’m not the biggest Obama fan these days. He’s going from one fuck up to the next without thinking things through. I was never deployed over seas so by no means am I judging someone’s state of mind for making a decision in the fog of war. With that being said how the fuck does the United States trade five top level terrorists for someone who’s walked off the battlefield?

Lets say we buy the original story of him falling behind while on patrol and being snatched up. Does that mean we trade one low level soldier for five high level guys who attack women and children? It might sound cold to people who have never serves but everyone and everything on the battlefield is property. Pieces that get moved about and used to gain the upper hand during war. How the fuck does this give you the upper hand?

If Obama was looking for that feel good story that would get Americans to fall in love with him all over again this ain’t it. He left his post during war and caused the deaths of six service members who will never have the opportunity of seeing their families again. To add the P.R. nightmare word is now getting out that the guy was actually helping the enemy with intel on how and when to attack Americans.

If this shit is remotely true, add it to the list of shitty decisions that this president has made..

Menstrual Cup?!?!

So the wife and I stopped at the pharmacy to pick up her refill pain medication for her plantar fasciitis. While at the counter these two younger females walked up to the counter next to ask asking if they sold menstrual cups. The minute I hear menstrual anything I fuckin bolted right down to the end of one of isles.

Once my wife was done, she found me and asked why I left. I told her what I overheard and we both looked at each other like what the fuck is that? On the drive home we decided to look it up and she found this handy little video that puts the little disgusting fucking thing into perspective.

It’s bad enough that the normal act as we know it of jamming a plug up there or wearing a diaper is filthy enough, now we want to add cups?! Well, enjoy this video. It describes what the items are and how to use it.

VA Issues

I served in the Army Reserves and my father served as a medic in the Army, so the military has been part of my life and has provided for me in ways that I can’t even list. I have a deep fondness for those that have served regardless of generation or branch. For everything that service members commit and sacrifice for their country how is it that we can allow them to have to be victims of the VA system.

These men and women who do the unimaginable and should be taken care of and given at the very least the medical care that a country can be proud of. They shouldn’t be shuffled alone from one list or line to the next. They shouldn’t be tossed aside as if they are leaching on the system. They earned the right to be taken care of with dignity and compassion and it’s disgusting that they receive anything less while assholes in political office are receiving the best care!
