    Default Wait....Someone help me out here.

    We have Furlough and Sequestration....but we can still have an LGBT Pride luncheon and fun run? Shouldn't all of these pride events be cancelled until Furlough and Sequestration end? And I am not just talking about this particular one. But it seems every month is a new one.

    That's what I am saying. For the duration of Furlough...shouldn't they all be cancelled. I know we don't "Fund" them per se..... But we all know government time goes into coordinating, attending, and all that. Not to mention government facilities used and on and on.

    AFN Korea was playing "LGBT Awareness" spots. The approximately 20-second clip involved a purple background with stick figures all holding hands - some were male/male, others were female/female. Then there were flowers that came across the screen and then a rainbow flag background with the words "Respect all of our differences, everyone is equal" and then "LBGT Awareness."

    I shit you not and I ask anyone in Korea who catches AFN to either confirm this or check to see if it is still playing. Even a simple call to AFN Korea could confirm it.

    Here you go...Obama officially declared June LGBT pride month and mandated its observance by military and civilian members of the DoD...

    Odd that he waited until June to do so but...

    We also are still spending $1,000 on award plaques because leadership wants to "take care of the people."

    But, back in winter, which wasn't that long ago for some people, when there was money for awards...there was no money available for cold weather gear. It was suggested people should go buy their own cold weather boots, fleece jackets, and other cold gear because you get an annual clothing allowance.
