It was truly a historic moment in time. An event I shall never forget. To actually see and listen to Nelson Mandela speak before my very own eyes. Definitely a momentous occasion to witness the unveiling of a statue in honor of the most loved and revered human being of our time. No need for further words on my part. The video speaks volumes on its own. You decide!

Tell the Pentagon: "Flush Rush" from military bases! A Daily Kos Petition!

Rush Limbaugh is finally getting his comeuppance for spewing misogynistic rhetoric. Advertisers have pulled their sponsorship, and many radio stations have stopped airing his show.
But the Armed Forces Network (AFN), a taxpayer-funded station that broadcasts on U.S. military bases around the world, continues to air his program.
The Pentagon faces a serious problem of sexual harassment and abuse, as more women on military bases report horrific cases of sexual assaults by other servicemembers. President Obamahas said we must “step up our game exponentially” to prevent such assaults from happening and punish attackers. This must include changing the culture that condones such behavior.
Rush Limbaugh’s program fuels a culture that condones—if not encourages—misogynistic behavior on military bases. Please sign our petition to the Defense Department asking that they pull Rush Limbaugh’s program from the Armed Forces Network.
Dear Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel:

Rush Limbaugh's sexist and misogynistic radio program has no place on military bases, which is struggling with its own culture that condones sexual harassment and assault. Please remove his program from the taxpayer-funded Armed Forces Network.

Please sign petition at the above link! Thanks!
My Petition Comment: This Guy should have been off the air a long time ago. He has done "NOTHING" to promote harmony within our pluralistic society.  It is a travesty that he is still broadcasting to our impressionable and vulnerable young men and women in the armed forces. He must go NOW!  Do the right thing! C. Middleton,Sr, Major,USAF,Retired

A Colorado Springs Gazette Article!  
 Story written b Dave Philipps

Any country that sends its soldiers off to far away lands to fight needless and unnecessary wars and expects them to return home normal or undamaged is living in a world of fantasy. Perhaps in the movies such scenarios occur in which soldiers come back to motherland victorious and exhibiting no signs of psychological damage, especially.  However, movies are nothing more than a temporary escape into a world of fantasy!

In real life people have human feelings and when exposed to abnormal conditions such as seeing fellow soldiers, friends and enemies heads blown off, they themselves losing limbs and experiencing blasts that affect their brains and other body parts, they are going to be affected both physically and psychologically-long term That is reality!

The linked Colorado Springs Gazette's story of the Army's mistreatment of returning veterans is a "tell tail sign" of what is yet to come as more and more troops return from Afghanistan and Iraq-overall. The probing question should be asked: Not only is the military ready to deal humanely with the returnees, but is the society as a whole also? Our men and women veterans deserve better, so let's all do our part to see that is what actually happens. 

Have you reached out to a veteran lately? Or called/written to your congressmen to protest lack of adequate treatment for veterans and their maltreatment and unfair expulsion from the military without benefits?  Please do your part,today!

After the clear ass whipping in yesterday's election results, I hope republicans and their avid and misguided supporters will get the message that the majority of U.S. citizens want cooperation and positive results  versus obstructionist actions. They have rejected right wing extremism and crazy policies that get into peoples' bedrooms, private lives as to who to marry and what a woman should do with her body, coupled with opposition to having the rich to pay their fair share of taxes . Plus, they stated that there is a place for a federal government in our lives.-as attested to by Gov Christie of NJ. during hurricane Sandy when dealing with FEMA. 
Thus, republicans must become adaptable to the new reality that most U.S. citizens are moderate and progressive; including a vast majority of progressive and moderate Latinos that cast their vote.  Hence, the progressive agenda was vindicated last night with a transparent and indisputable victory.

I hope Rush Limbaugh,Glen Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Laura Ingram and all the other right wing talk show hosts and nuts will  finally understand the resounding majority message, and get on board to support the President and his policies, instead of spewing out hate language and innuendo on a daily basis; poisoning the minds of the weak, the vulnerable and those that want to think only negative thoughts about their fellow Americans on the other side of the political spectrum.  After all, we are all on this SHIP  together: One Nation under God!  All for one, one for all! 

No doubt, Romney got the message, as indicated in his concession speech: It's over, he stated!  Super! A sincere speech, with a heartfelt and believable delivery. I hope his followers will listen and heed as well.
