Tom Goss “Lover”

“Lover” tells a story very rarely told: of the loss endured by partners of gay servicemembers who are killed in battle.

The video features Goss as the bereaved partner of an army soldier (DC actor Ben Horen) killed while on duty in Afghanistan.

Among those playing medics who come to the aid of the wounded soldier are several former service members who were discharged under the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy: Mike Almy, David Hall, and Danny Hernandez, all of whom are active members of SLDN. Keith Bryant stars as a fellow soldier.

The video, Goss’s fourth, was filmed in DC and Alexandria. is being directed by DC residents Aram Vartian and Michael Key of DC; Dylan Comstock is director of photography.

Misguided Midget Asshole with dreams of ruling the world

That is a quote from the movie The Last Dragon.

Why do I have this quote? Just saw a few minutes of the movie yesterday on some cable network (TNT?). Did you know that Bush is the shortest president in nearly twenty-four years? Did you know that the last, and only, president as tall as John Kerry was Abraham Lincoln? Just something interesting I scooped up today.

Bush is our Misguided Midget Asshole…

Misguided because he attacked Iraq when he should have attacked Afganistan (if anyone). He put all his sights on the Middle East while ignoring current allies and foes in Europe and Asia (respectively). We have allies furious at us and enemies with weapons that could kill thousands of us.

Midget because, well he is too short to take seriously. I mean, he is average, but I want a president that towers over his people, to show strength. Weak argument I know haha but:

In his 1982 book Too Small, Too Tall psychologist John Gillis presents [these] results: in the 21 presidential elections from 1904 to 1984, the taller candidate won 80 percent of the time. What’s more, he says, in the whole history of the Republic, only two presidents–Harrison and James Madison (5’4″)–were appreciably shorter than the average height in their day.

An asshole because he focuses on his partisan agenda where big money companies take precedence over his constiuents. He focuses issues where he has money at stake, while ignoring the rest of America. Nota bene!
