Thank You All

Happy Veteran's Day to all those who have served the U.S. Military! It is a milestone that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" has finally been repealed. Sadly, it is not that long ago that desegregation of the military occurred. It is important to continue to progress and remember the lessons that history teaches us all.

The military lifestyle--surprisingly--is exclusive. I was shocked that a casting call for a military wives' reality show was being held in California. The timing was bad because it coincided with the popular show, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'" spouse's suicide, but most importantly, at a time when suicide rates in the military were at an all-time high.

The military has protective security measures but some of their big-mouthed wives are unaware of this and will gladly offer too much information. I hope the show does not come to fruition. The entire reason there is a gate at each and every base is for privacy and protection.

The latest group in America to violate their own privacy are in Dearborn, Michigan and they will have a show on TLC. First, it was Sister Wives, then, it was My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and now it is the American Muslims. I fail to see anything that merits their differences other then their way of dress. There are American Buddhists, are they going to do a show on them too?

Americans are diverse. Relgion should never be exploited. The Muslims that I know are very open to educate me about their religion and that is the best way to learn and not through the edutainment of reality tv.
