Tentatively Quitting Tumblr
For various reasons, a lot personal, I think I’m going to be quitting tumblr. A small bit because of certain things being tossed around across the site, but mostly because I think it’s having a vastly negative effect on me as a person, and that’s translating over into other things and damaging them. So I think just quitting this site (which I often find to be quite toxic, the funny stuff was really what kept me around for so long) is best.
I say “tentatively” in the subject only because I may come crawling back like the weak minded person I am. But I’m going to try not to.

… awkward moment for Cheney
My, perhaps personal, concern for military budget cuts, is the cutting of things like retirement benefits for those that retire after 20 years of service. I believe they were at some point talking about cutting retirement benefits for the families, so that only the service member gets the retirement benefits and the family doesn’t, which is a concern since a number of people join the military and go for 20 years to retirement so their families are taken care of as well.
But I agree, Cheney did a fantastic job of putting his foot in his mouth multiple times.
