Gay Pride Month: Why is there no straight pride month?

Gay Pride Month: Why is there no straight pride month?
Today is June 1st. Not only is it the day that Gay Marriage becomes legal in every county in Illinois, but it is also the annual start to Gay Pride Month. What this means to gay people and their supporters is a month of celebrating diversity and being proud of who we are. It is... Read more »

Joe Walsh goes after LGBTs, Al Sharpton, and Trevon Martin

Former Congressman Joe Walsh has apparently finally gone off the deep end, not that he had far to go. He went on Twitter last night to claim that gay people have become “constitutional terrorists”. The LGBT community has become nothing more than a group of constitutional terrorists #tcot — Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) February 25, 2014... Read more »

Be a Victim: It's the American Way

Be a Victim: It's the American Way
Though I completely disagree with news organizations like Fox News saying that we are experiencing the “Wussification of America“, I do believe that something sinister is going on. We have trained Americans to play the victim in this Country. Nobody is responsible for their own actions anymore. Instead of taking responsibility, one merely just becomes... Read more »

Turn your passion into your profit!

Here it is the first Monday of 2013. I bet most people out there are dreading this first full week of work in the new year. Unfortunately, we must work because otherwise we would run out of money. With money being gone, we would become homeless, hungry, and depressed. So, as much as we would... Read more »

Anne Hathaway delivers in Les Miserables

Anne Hathaway delivers in Les Miserables
Like many musical fans, I spent Christmas Day in the theater watching the new movie Les Miserables. Like any fan of the hit Broadway musical, I was nervous how Hollywood would adapt the production into movie form. Fortunately, they saw fit to go with the adage of ”if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. With the exception of a few modifications, the... Read more »

Job Report doesn't help those unemployed!

If you have seen any media reports today, you are well aware that the unemployment rate rose very slightly to 7.9% last month. That is up just .1% from the September rate. I think we can all agree that we are just happy the rate is still below 8%. In addition, though the rate went... Read more »

Hate: An American Value

Hate: An American Value
Since the day that Thomas Jefferson referred to Native Americans as “merciless Indian savages” in the Declaration of Independence, hate has been an American value. No matter what is going on in our Country, no matter how powerful our Country is, we have made it a point to try to collectively find a group to hate.... Read more »

Avoid negative influences on Social Media Outlets!

I cannot believe it has been almost a month since my last post. I guess life just got in the way. However, I am back, and I promise to do better. The main reason for my lack of blogging is that I had planned to take a week off to evaluate where I am in... Read more »

Do not hide your hate behind Chick-fil-A

I have avoided commenting on the whole Chick-fil-A thing because both sides, in my opinion, over reacted. I think almost every gay person I know knew that Chick-fil-A was anti-gay, and almost every straight person I knew ate at Chick-fil-A because they liked it. Up until now, I had assumed that most of my straight “friends”... Read more »

Looking for something to do? Look elsewhere!

Just on the heals of finding out that the Arlington Theater in Arlington Heights shut their doors, I find out that the AMF Bowling Alley in Rolling Meadows has shut down as well. The Arlington Theater, which closed due to a failure to reach a new lease deal, was one of my favorite hangout spots... Read more »
