Who Am I?

My photo

I served in the US Navy from 2002-08; four of those years were as a Nuclear Propulsion Operator aboard an aircraft carrier. I engage in political activism in various Democratic circles when I am able to. I have a cat, and I am an uncle.

All opinions that I express are my own and do not reflect the views of any organization that I represent.

Let's watch:

Did you see the controversy?!

Me neither.

The Supreme Court 46 years ago this month unanimously ruled in favor of Mildred and Richard Loving thus overturning bans on marriages between people of different races. Today anyone who thinks that folks of difference races should not be allowed to marry each other.... well, they're idiots who haven't gotten that memo and they are even bigger idiots if they got it, but didn't read it.

The comments were getting so bad that Cheerios had to disable the commenting section on the YouTube video. For goodness sakes, they're trying to sell you some cereal.

Understandable this ad is a big deal to some people because it shows that those families are just like every other family in this country.

And for the record I have eaten Cheerios (and their variations: Honey Nut Cheerios and Cinnamon Cheerios) since I was a kid. I will continue to purchase and eat their cereal.

If cereal ads and children's cartoons get you all worked up, maybe you need to rethink your priorities about what is REALLY important in life.
