I am talking to my husband right now and he told me that President Obama was talking about Haiti and how he was proud of the CORPSMAN not Corpsman but CORPSE MAN HAHAHAHA Nice screw up dude! I know you have a lot on your plate but corpsman is said without the 's'. HAHAHAHA He didn't just say it once but TWICE! It was spelled corpsman on the telepromter but instead of having it written like corp man so that the Pres. says it right. But still shouldn't the pres know how to say it the RIGHT way? Sad Obama real sad!
Well, I'm typically well thought-out and considerate in responses, even in the face of people pretty much saying what I said, but threads full of people coming together to bash on one person prompt me to post a comment of disagreement. Granted that I hadn't considered my word choice until after posting.
Part of the motivation for so many of us noticing THIS particular slip is that Mr. Obama is the Commander In Chief of our armed forces...and when the Commander of the Corps considers you a Corpse, it's more than a little unsettling. Additionally, and especially for those of us who happen to be military veterans, we tie the "slip" in with the infamous photo of Mr. Obama (prior to the election) being photographed on the deck of a U.S. Navy warship with our flag flying proudly. Three people show in that photo, one of them Hillary Clinton. Two of the people are standing at attention and saluting the flag. Obama is standing with his BACK to the flag, clearly refusing to salute, clearly NOT respecting this most important symbol of the United States of America. To have such a person giving orders determining the life and death of our warriors is creepy to say the least.
This is about MUCH more than a simple "verbal slip".
aaaa got ya well start talking more peptalk...a good way to get fans or followers or stalkers whatever they are called now and get more ppl reading your hubs. It's how I got so many so fast...though i doubt they all read my hubs since I have a low comment rate on my hubs but eh whatever
I about choked to death this afternoon.. I just started writing something that I've barely even talked about.. it was the strangest thing and I kept asking myself... what the heck am I doing! So it must be the right time and the right place, or I'm just finally loosing it completely.
Oh great now aother song popped in head. thanks drej!
and yes when growing up I didn't know myself and I listned to what others said about me, me thinking them true...that I'm stupid, ugly, pathtic, a retard...you get the picture. I had no friends growing up..and the two friends I did have treated me like sh!t then finally got so bad I stopped playing with them even though they lived in my neighborhood. tha started me on my spiral of low self esteem and petsimistic thinking.
but because I am still growing as a person, still shaping myself the way I want to be because I do know more truth about who i am and myself I am way better off than i was back then. I may still have low self esteem and still think pestimisitcally but it isn't as bad as it use to be.
and you can ask away i'm not afraid to share this at all.
I think most people are insecure...especially writers! Hell, sometimes it's the only way we can release our frustrations! Hmmm, you think knowing yourself has helped, but it doesn't solve the problem, right?...I wonder if I can use you as a reference...like a case study so to speak..
I haven't had the "s" word in almost a year and the last time was one hell of a doozy... and not in a good way to say the least. Anyone who has read two of my hubs has probably figured that part out though.
Anyway, a couple weeks ago I decided that maybe if I tried just talking to guys on an IM.... maybe I could drag myself out of my cocoon. (Inspired by my roommate who keeps trying to set me up with 'nice guys')
I think getting to know yourself better by yourself as well as through more positive ppl does help with self esteem. I am slowly getting there it will take probably a few or several more years until I can better accept compliments and the such but I know I'll get there.
If you want my 2 cents, I have spent the last year really getting to know myself. I thought I knew everything there was to know until I got bashed upside the head by the real world. I don't know if it changed who I was or just brought out all the stuff I had been hiding from.
aaa well peptalk that sometimes works sometimes not. my friend does that and she gets the weirdos coming after not coming after attracted to her so you have to be really careful with online chat and meeting of guys unless you know it's a good website like eHarmoney or something like that
this is true...I cried a lot too when my hubby and I dated for 3 years long distance with only a week here or there to see each other. But if it's meant to be then everything will work out for the best for you and for him. just have to work at it, keep in contact with one another, and see where it goes and if either you or he when the time is right will move to be closer to one another
