LIBERAL PROGRESS REPORT!

Tammy Duckworth — Democratic National Convention, (DNC)

While some of us are committed to change for its own sake, others seek no change at all by any means necessary.

 

by Rufus Peterson

President,

Progressives Operating Optimistically Today, (P.O.O.T  )                                                          

 

Hallelujah, Brothers and Sisters!

 

We live in interesting times, times of great flux which wait for no one. While some of us are committed to change for its own sake, others seek no change at all by any means necessary. For those of us on the former course, led forth by the better angels of our nature, we know that ‘Carpe Diem’ is the order of the day.

 

Hark, and heed our sense of mission! Health care for everyone will soon allow our corporate providers to reap even greater profits. Comprehensive immigration reform will bring millions out of the shadows to enjoy a better future, thus encouraging an even greater source of shadow-dwellers to arrive. This ensures a cheap source of labor for job creators, keeping wages low for blue collar people, where they need to be. Firearm owners are on the run- to retailers and gun shows for that third or fourth Bushmaster, just in case.

 

Quote from First Lady’s speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC)

Under our President, Barack Obama, the cause of Progress keeps marching on, with no end in sight! It was what, maybe a week ago when he stood before a crowd of many thousands, pooping rainbows and unicorns for all the good, well-meaning people of this country.

Right on the heels of that, a great historic wrong has been righted. While I always thought it was superior common sense that kept women from engaging in combat in the great wars we continue to fight, it turns out I was sadly misinformed. There was a BAN in place keeping women from blasting the living hell out of our many enemies and returning as mangled basket cases.

But that’s history now.

Doesn’t it feel great to be alive? Ask all the females you know about this, and while you’re at it, you might also take steps to make sure there are no impediments to keep Tammy Duckworth (wiki) from getting back in a chopper and getting her arms blown off as well- as she helps to bring freedom into this world.

 

Rufus,

I wanted to share this email from Tammy Duckworth below, about the huge news that the ban on women in combat has been lifted by President Obama!

Take a moment to read it and click the link to stand with President Obama and Secretary Panetta.

It was just last year that Rick Santorum said, “I do have concerns about women in front line combat… people naturally may do things that may not be in the interests of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved.”

Saying women would endanger a mission because of their “emotions” is offensive, and has been proven wrong. But it’s the kind of stuff that will start being spouted from the right. That’s why it’s important for you to stand up for women in the military, against this nonsense.

See the email below, and thanks for your support.

Sincerely,

Jon Soltz

Iraq War Veteran

Chairman, VoteVets.org

 

Dear Jon,

Great news – yesterday, the Pentagon announced an end to the ban on women in combat, finally allowing our military to fully benefit from the talents of women who want to serve and defend our great nation.

Please join me in thanking Defense Secretary Leon Panetta for lifting the ban on women in combat. Click here to automatically sign our card.

When we as a nation lift restrictions and allow people to serve based on their performance, we benefit from it. That was true when President Truman desegregated the military, allowing African-Americans to serve as equals. It was true when President Obama ended “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” allowing our gay and lesbian service members to serve openly. And it is true now.

As a Veteran who saw combat action, I know firsthand that America’s daughters are just as capable of defending liberty as her sons. Allowing our women in uniform to serve fully is a win for our nation.

- Tammy

P.S. This decision still needs to be implemented and it’s important for Pentagon leaders to know that you support ending the ban. Please click here to thank Secretary Panetta now.
