"Yesterday afternoon, I had the honor of meeting with several military commanders and enlisted personnel at Fort Bragg's Womack Army Medical Center to address my concerns regarding the healthcare and treatment of our troops. Last week's reports of substandard care for our country's warriors and veterans sent shockwaves throughout the Fort Bragg community and will require accountability and immediate solutions. I was pleased to meet Womack's new director, Col. Ronald Stephens - who, along with General Chinn, General Campbell, and General Horoho, assured me that the ongoing investigation will be dealt with in a way that holds people accountable and uncovers solutions. We are all committed to working together to address all the issues that will lead to improved patient care and the highest quality for our military and their families."
"The men and women of Womack are doing amazing things in spite of these recent shortfalls. While we are acutely aware of the shortcomings, it is important to note that every day, lives are saved and positively impacted due to the dedication of every healthcare provider and employee at Womack. I look forward to working with all of them to ensure that this standard of excellence will be evident to all."
Please we all know that you don’t care, only doing this to gain political points with the voters in your district..

A California woman has kicked off a class action lawsuit against Apple over missing text messages. She claims that after she ditched her iPhone for an Android, Apple's iMessage system prevented her from receiving "countless" texts after the switch, according to documents filed in a San Jose court.
The suit, first reported by Bloomberg, is based on the long-known Apple iMessage problem: If you ditch your iPhone for an Android (or any other kind of phone), there's a chance you might not be able to receive texts from other iPhones.
The funny thing is that Apple give you the ability to turn off Imessages on your Iphone.. This is another dumbass lawsuit, that will drive up the prices of all futures Iphones..
go to iphone setting, than messages setting, turn off Imessage,,
learn how to use you Iphones..

Former North Carolina small town mayor Mark Chilton was elected as Orange County register of deeds yesterday. Chilton campaigned on a promise to issue same-sex marriage licenses.
Chilton announced earlier this year that, if elected, he would violate state law and the Register of Deeds’ oath of office by issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Doing so could bring misdemeanor charges and removal from office. The real estate attorney said Article 1 and Article 6 of the N.C. Constitution, which includes the oath of office, defer to the U.S. Constitution when there are conflicts. Chilton said he would stop if a court orders it.
Well you the who is piss about this right???
The anti-gay Christian Action League is not happy.
“No doubt, some same-sex marriage promoters are beyond thrilled with the prospect of having a Register of Deeds who will pull such a stunt,” said the Rev. Mark Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League. “But as we’ve mentioned before, renegade registers who issue marriage licenses improperly will just create a legal quagmire detrimental to folks on both sides of the issue.”

There, in the US there is a lot speculation over the sexuality of a young congressman, simply because he young, built and single. This has lead to many members of the LGBT community to speculate that he is gay and in the closet. If he is straight or gay is totally his business.

The United Church of Christ filed suit in North Carolina this week, challenging the state’s ban on marriage equality, but their argument comes with a twist: “Like dozens of marriage equality suits that have come before, this case – United Church of Christ v. Cooper – cites the constitutional rights to equal protection and due process under the Fourteenth Amendment, currently denied to gay and lesbian couples who wish to marry in North Carolina. But what makes the suit unique is its charge that the state’s marriage law also violates the First Amendment’s guarantee to freedom of religion – something typically used in arguments against LGBT equality, not for it.”
So, do you think this type of legal challenge will work in our favor?
Before her presence in the parade, Akie Abe noted her support for LGBT equality on her Facebook page, "I want to help build a society where anyone can conduct happy, enriched lives without facing discrimination."
So glad to see Japan opening up.. wow.
HRC Calls on Organizations to Avoid Hotels Owned by Anti-LGBT Sultan of Brunei
Following Brunei’s decision this week to advance a series of penal code reforms that will include stoning as a possible punishment for relations between its #LGBT citizens, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) sent letters today to the leadership of several organizations that currently plan to host events at American hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei.
Don’t Worry Ellen nor Sharon will give them a job either.. When you do this type of boycott you are not hurting the Sultan or his Country.. but you are hurting those here at home, who work at these American Hotels.. But then again, HRC does have a history throwing people and groups under the bus for their own personal gain..
Below is an excerpt from the letter HRC President Chad Griffin sent to organizations hosting events at the Beverly Hills Hotel, and the full text is available here:
“There are a number of hotels and venues in the Los Angeles area that aren’t owned by foreign leaders and governments that allow for the execution of its LGBT citizens. We’re encouraging members of the LGBT community and our allies to consider those options instead of the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel Bel-Air––which are part of the Sultan’s Dorchester Collection. In addition, we’re calling on organizations that have upcoming events scheduled at these hotels to move them to other locations.
Newport News, Va. – A former Newport News police officer was sentenced to suspended jail time on 12 counts of indecent exposure and obscene sexual behavior charges Thursday.
it doesn’t matter what the reason is, this sorry ass cop need to be in jail for his crime.. I’m tired of the “black” law protecting the “blue” law.. or getting a DA discount on the crimes..
he as a past too,
Roush first made headlines in 2009 when he was charged with sexually assaulting two women he dated. The Newport News Police Department suspended him without pay after his arrest, but they gave him his job back in 2010 when two juries acquitted him of the charges.
Wait for it, it was alcohol and substance abuse that cause him to do.. For everyone else this defense wouldn’t work.. But for the local Thugs with Badges it does..
