Supporting Our Military Families: This Time We Really, Really Mean It.

I’ll have to make this short, as we’re busy selecting our outfit for the big announcement of our national military families support effort. Along with Lady M, today’s noon kickoff will include Dr. Jill and the boyz.

Boy, my circuits may need to be cleaned out, because I could have sworn that we’ve kicked this popular initiative off 2 or 3 times before.

Oh that’s right; I guess we called for a do-over after getting the photos back from the last kickoff.

And speaking of do-overs and supporting our military, did you see this?

Nearly a year after President Barack Obama fired Gen. Stanley McChrystal as his top commander in Afghanistan, the White House has asked him to head a new advisory board to support military families.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of Stan’s even though he did let himself get rolled by a third rate rock and roll tabloid, butt this just seems odd. I’m not questioning his qualifications, and I certainly don’t have any executive management experience, butt I’ve heard that it’s never a good idea to hire someone for an important job that you’ve previously fired. As I’m pretty sure the Wons consider this an important job, I can only assume that Big Guy understands human nature better than most senior business executives – which makes sense since he’s POTUS and they’re not. Yet.




Back to the topic at hand, our dress selection today is very important, which is why I need to run along soon. We want to look professional, caring and concerned, while not clashing  in any way with Dr. Jill.

Of course, this important initiative is not about Lady M or Dr. Jill, it’s about supporting our military families. And we all need to chip in to help out because as they wrote in their joint (that means neither of them wrote it) USA Today editorial last September, the government will do what it can for our military families, “But government can only do so much.”

Maybe someone should pass that classified information on to Big Guy before he makes his BIG BUDGET speech tomorrow.

He’s just not sure our deficit would benefit from by-pass surgery at this point, and is inclined to follow his his own advice and recognize that “some times you’re better off not having the, uh, surgery, butt taking the, uh, pain killer.”

I’m not an ER doctor, butt I have learned on TV that one of the first steps in triage requires you to stop the bleeding. And I see from my hard drive that we are currently bleeding around $10.5 billion a day. Whew! I don’t see how a feel-good pain pill will save the patient. Butt then, I guess that’s not the point.
