Atlanta's Biggest Loser

Vote for my Mom.... no seriously, help strategically vote for my Mom. Please vote for her and pass it on if you feel so inclined. I've also lost around 25 pounds and could stand to lose 20 or so more. So, yeah... read and heed please. kthanx

Hello everyone,

Most of you know that I'm a contestant on Atlanta's version of the Biggest Loser contest. Well, we've been at it for six weeks now and we have six more to go. I'm still safe and have lost nearly 20 lbs! I'm asking you to vote for Cheryl this week so that she can possibly avoid elimination from the game (link below). This is a strategic move on my part and I would greatly appreciate your vote for Cheryl. You can vote once today and once tomorrow by 10am (eastern time).

Thank you for your support during this process. It's been a great adventure for me and I'm getting healthier and stronger each day. I went to the doctor on Tuesday and my blood pressure is also down along with my weight.

If I end up in the bottom two after next weigh-in and require your vote, you'll be hearing from me. Until then, thanks for all of your support. It is greatly appreciated!

McCain called them "gooks."

McCain Criticized for Slur - He says he'll keep using term for ex-captors in Vietnam - - 18FEB00

""I hate the gooks," McCain said yesterday in response to a question from reporters aboard his campaign bus. "I will hate them as long as I live."

"I was referring to my prison guards," McCain said, "and I will continue to refer to them in language that might offend some people because of the beating and torture of my friends."

The word "gook" was first used in 1899 by American soldiers fighting Filipino insurgents. During the Korean War, the term was aimed at Koreans and Chinese. It was directed at the Vietnamese when Americans were fighting in Vietnam. It is now used as a slur toward any Asian or Pacific Islander.

"If Sen. McCain had been captured by Nigerians, could he call those people `niggers' and think he wasn't going to offend everyone who is black?" Akoi asked. "We can all feel for what he went through, but if that's his level of sensitivity, I'm very disappointed."

"I will call right now, my interrogator that tortured me, a gook," McCain said. "(I can't believe that) anybody doesn't believe these interrogators and prison guards were cruel and sadistic people who deserve the worst appellations possible."

McCain said he does not consider the comment an epithet.

"Gook," he said, "is the kindest appellation I can give.""

Considering the company that I keep here in Iraq does not leave me immune to using such phrases as "Sand N****er." After all, a number of them have been detained because they in fact were caught constructing or placing IEDs or worse. That said, it's entirely unprofessional and unbecoming of a Soldier.

I wonder if John McCain has changed his mind since then.
