So much News today!

I don't know where to start. 


I'm 15 weeks pregnant today! This time next month I'll hopefully know the sex of our lil babe. 


Then we have this Marine running his mouth on social networking sites about how he won't obey orders from his Commander-in-Chief. It's baffling that the Marine Corp is allowing him to get away with it. I don't understand. The Marine argues that he's still entitled to an opinion, that "the Constitution trumps all." Well, it's funny to me after 8 years of service to the Corp, this Marine doesn't know how wrong he is. He is, rightfully entitled to any opinion that comes his way about the government, up to and including the President. He is not, however, entitled or permitted to go on social networking sites and make negative statements about his chain of command which of course includes his President. 


To clarify the Marine Sgt, said he would not follow "unlawful orders" given by the President to include, "detaining U.S. citizens, disarming them or doing anything else that he believes would violate their constitutional rights" What? Im just floored. Where does that come from? What conspiracy theorist came up with this nonsense? Why would this Marine assume the President would order him to do any of the above? 


It's nonsense, that should not be tolerated. 


Then we have the White House Announcing New Steps to Provide Housing Relief to Veterans and Servicemembers and Help More Responsible Homeowners Refinance. This new program is retroactive to 2006. It will help those who were forced to sell their homes at a loss due to PCS. It will also help those (like myself) who were denied a refinance in order to make their mortgages more affordable due to military service. 


See the full press release, here. Contact your lender to see if you qualify. 


It never hurts to educate yourself on programs afforded to you and your family based on your sponsors service!

Why is this guy even a Marine then? When you join up you take oath to basically take orders, no matter what you may think or believe. Of course everyone is going to have their own opinion but being in the Military means contributing to something larger than yourself...

Anyways, the home owners news is fantastic! Hope you can make it work for you!
