Bye Bye Barney Frank

Thank God Barney Frank is not running for congress again!  It seems like people in MA love this guy, but he is a bum and has done a lot to damage personal liberties in MA.  Lets hope that someone with a little common sense (be it democrat, republican, libertarian, etc.) runs for this office

Time to shit or get off the pot

So I have decided that I have reached a point in my life that I need to make some changes.  I have been trying to live very much the way that I did when I was 21/22 years old and that just isn't working.  So here is a small list of things that I want to focus on improving over the next year or so.

Eat right-
This is top of the list because, at the moment, my eating habits are well below where I want them to be.  I must admit that after JW was born I got a bit lax about taking care of myself and my eating habits have really gone down the shitter.  So first and foremost this month I am working on having good meals (starting with an actual breakfast, not just a granola bar.)

Drink less-
I am not 21 anymore.  I think in general it will be good to cut down on the amount I am drinking.  Occasional drinks and drinks at get together are, of course, still perfectly fine.

I have become entirely to uptight in the past two years.  I think its just the fact that I have become busy and we had the wedding and then (not long after) JW came.  I just need to remember to relax and have fun!

Just because a rule pisses you off doesn't mean it is racist/sexist/against a religion

I am all for personal liberties and all that, but just because something goes against what you want doesn't mean that it is infringing on your civil liberties.

I read this article recently about a young Muslim girl who was offended by the fact that she was not allowed to wear her hijab while in her ROTC uniform.  She claims that it is discrimination by her superiors for saying that it isn't allowed.

Sorry kid, but ROTC is a uniformed group.  By joining it you are agreeing to certain uniform restrictions, that's a part of ROTC.  No one is telling you that you cannot practice your religion, but there are certain rules in things like the military.
