You want a knight in shining armor? Really?

I graduated my leadership course yesterday and am on my way back to Dallas today. I can't wait to put GA behind me.

It is humid as hell down here. I know it's hot as two hell's in Texas; but it's a dry heat. This humid shit?
I ain't gonna be able to do it. This is that bullshit son.

Anyways back to what I want to talk about....

We had to critique the class and it's instructors yesterday before we signed out. In my opinion the class was ok..I can't complain about it. The instructors were professional and very knowledgeable in their field. They handled their business.
So my critique was pretty positive.


But...

The one female in the class critique was not very good. She complained about everything. But the one complaint that got me and the rest of the class heated was she said that the guys in the class were not very "gentleman like". She said that during the time we had night classes that at least one of us should have walked her to her car. She said that we should have opened doors, and offered her the best seat and all that good shit. We should have invited her to go out with us when the rest of the guys were going out around the town..even though we did and she always refused.
All we could do when this bullshit came out her mouth was go, for real?
That's how you want to play this? Really?

Now mind you that this is the same chick that got pissy when we offered to carry equipment that would have been too damn heavy for her. We altered the way we talked around her so as not to offend her. We offered to drive to her room to pick her up if she wanted to hang with us.

But this chick is talking about opening doors and walking her to her car at night on a military installation? One of the safest places a person can be?

I can't stand females like this.

First and foremost she is a soldier. She knew the job was dangerous when she took it. She wants to be treated equal; but she complains about us not opening doors for her? Really?
She don't want to be treated differently because she's a woman; but she is complaining about not being treated differently because she's a woman.

You can't have it both ways. Either you want to be treated like a woman or you don't.

This is one of the many reasons some men don't like women being in the military.

Me?

I like woman in the military. It would be hell being around a bunch of nasty ass, stank feet, farting, snuff dipping, hairy ass dudes all the damn time. Having women around is a good thing.

What?
Don't judge son; don't judge... I am a healthy man that likes healthy women. Besides I met my wife while she was in the military.

But this heffa here?

I could do without females like her.

Especially ones that look like Precious but want to be treated like Gabrielle Union.

Yeah I said it.

Don't ask don't tell? Really? It should be don't show don't ask

In my last post I told y'all how I am down here in Georgia going to a military advancement class.

So far this class has been pretty cool.

Except for one thing...

There is only one female in our class. Which is not all that surprising.

There is one dude in our class that is sweeter than a bag of Reece's pieces. Which again, is not all that surprising.

The thing that bothers me and the rest of the dudes and one female in the class is that this dude is straight flamboyant with his gayness. Which again is cool with me...I prefer that if a person is gay, then be who the hell you are supposed to be.

I just don't want to get hit on by a dude. And this dude makes no qualms about what it is he is looking to "get".

That bothers me.

 First...We are supposed to be in a "professional" setting and the type of shit this dude is pulling is out of line.

Second...It is starting to make the guys(including me) and one girl in the class very uncomfortable. Nobody wants to partner up with this dude to conduct the labs that are required to pass this class.

Third...The shit just makes me feel nasty..Like I have to jump head first into a vat of hand sanitizer and just swim around in that shit.

I hate feeling like this about anybody.

I have no problem with a dude that likes dudes or a chick that is into chicks. I just don't care. There are a lot more things in this world to worry about than what 2 grown consenting ass people are doing to each other in their own time.
But what I have a problem with is when one of those grown consenting ass people try their damnedest  to pull me into what they think is "normal" behavior for them.

That's that bullshit son.

I think we as a class are going to have to have a come to Jesus meeting with our token Gay dude.

Talk about a hostile work environment.

No matter how much shit changes; shit smells the same

I am in the great state of Georgia for the next 3 weeks.

I am down here going to a school I need for advancement in my military career.

I have not been down here since 1991.
20 damn years ago.

I look around and I am surrounded by kids that are young, dumb and full of cum just like I was 20 years ago.

Damn I feel old.

These kids have no idea what they are getting themselves into;just like I didn't. They think they are on top of the world;just like I did. Nobody but a drill sergeant can tell them anything;just like I was.

Kids.

Kids all ready to go do grown folks business in Afghanistan, Iraq or any of the other "stans" that are our new "sworn" enemies.

It's a trip because when I was here the first time, the first Iraq war; started by Daddy Bush was in full swing.
Now 20 years later, 2 wars started by his son Jr. is the "new" hotness.

It's amazing how no matter how much shit changes; shit smells the same.

Kids.

Damn.

On a scale of 1-10......

I was asked the other day by one of my white colleagues what I think of our President and the job he is doing.

I had to stop and think about this a little because normally me and this dude does not talk that much. But we were working together that day and somehow the conversation turned towards politics. At first I thought that the question was a trick to draw out something negative; since you all know that White People love to hear Black people bash other Black people that are in some position of power; you know what I mean, that ole divide and conquer thang; so I told myself to choose my words wisely.

I told him I think he has accomplished a lot in his short time in office; more than damn near any other President before him.. .
But...
I told him I ain't all that impressed with him. I think he concedes too damn much.
I think he tries so hard to not be the Angry Black man, that he bends over way too easy. He tries to get along with people that he should just tell to go fuck themselves. I think he needs to show the world whose nuts are swinging.
This is what I think.
But...Another But...

Has he been a bad President?
Ummmmmm. No.

He has shown some flashes of brilliance. He has proven to me and the rest of the stereo type believers here in this great country of ours that there are educated, soft-spoken, strong Black men walking amongst us. He has proven that you don't need to slap a ho to get your point across. Even though slapping a few hos is exactly what he needs to do sometimes.

So I am kinda torn on this subject. He has disappointed me, but he has given me hope too. He has me asking sometimes, "man what the fuck is this dude doing? Why does he put up with that bullshit?" But then I turn around and say, "Man that is one smooth brother. Damn."

So basically that is what I told my co-worker.
I don't approve of everything that the man has done..But I give the man credit on the things he has done.

So there you have it..

What say you ole faithful readers?
How do you grade our HNIC?
