Default Husband of gay sailor named Military Spouse of the Year.

http://www.rawstory.com/2016/01/san-...e-of-the-year/

Ok, so, other than being gay, what makes this guy a candidate for 'Military Spouse of the Year'?

Last year's winner:
Quote:
Lakesha’s accomplishments include hosting daily mentoring and mini-workshops to help address the business needs of military spouse entrepreneurs, and creating and owning She Swank | Too, a popular on-base boutique for women and girls that stylishly promotes confidence, inspiration and independence. She is currently in her last semester at Parsons The New School for Design, pursuing a degree in Retail Marketing.

With the reach of the Military Spouse of the YearŽ organization behind her, Cole is planning to pioneer the movement of professional growth and entrepreneurial opportunities for military spouses.

Lots of good stuff. Daily mentoring, created and runs her own business for women on base, and going to school, and now is using her victory to teach other military spouses how to create and run their own business.

Here is the gay guy's accomplishments:

Quote:
He has raised money for a sailor whose house burned down, helped vets get jobs, and provided assistance to other sailors attempting buying homes through a VA program using his experience as a Vice President of Marketing for a real estate brokerage firm.

He raised money and gave some advice on VA home loans.



Our country is a joke. Amazingly, we have over 2,000,000 military service members, with roughly half a million wives (me guessing), and the .000001% of those spouses, the gay guy, gets the nomination.

But not because he's gay. He just gives good advice on VA home loans.

I am still involved in numerous military programs, a few of which are aimed directly at spouses.

If you aren't going to give the award out based on merit, don't give it out at all. That's a slap in the face to spouses that I know deserve it more.

Giving out advice doesn't make you spouse of the year.

Does it not anger you that someone who doesn't deserve an award gets the award anyway?

Especially at the expense of military spouses all across the country?

Are you one of those 'everybody deserves a trophy' type people?

It's not nothing to the people that should be recognized over this homosexual male that merely got the award as a shtick.

I'm guessing you haven't been this angry since Caitlyn Jenner won an award for bravery.

Sorry, my dude. It's still nothing. Sensationalizing it as a slight to every other miltary spouse and blowing it way out of proportion doesn't change that. It's a ****ing award I'm sure at least 95% of the population never knew existed or care about. Recognized by who? Who cares? Start your own foundation and recognize people you feel deserve it.

On it's own it's nothing, but it's representative of a disturbing and decadent trend in American life: this truly absurd obsession with running the world according to the dictates of political correctness, and the insane obsessions of people who think and behave like children. Not satisfied with keeping their childish opinions to themselves, they seek to impose them on everyone, through force, which is why this kind of idiocy is becoming ubiquitous. If you think cultural shifts aren't important, and that it won't have a large impact on future trends, then you're a plain fool.
