Hey 'Everyone' says he, the limbaugh, is the top dog as to the present day tepublicans.

Nobody will cross him especially party politicians, they choose their words very carefully.

Why until they officially anoint a political face to lead, through these really messed up already primaries, can't even count votes, and never mentioning the 'bush', he's the one.

A chubby radio talking head, holds all the power, for a couple of hours a day.

While his legions carry out their daily parroting duties, including I'm sure some women within those ranks.

And just think of what has been growing, from his many years of, as to the first part of this month, pointed directly at All women, and started because of the cult like politics of some!!

Lets take a look at just a very small but always there group of dedicated Women, examples of all and brought to us via the Department of Defense.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.

    Quite Frankly the nerve, showing the true chickenhawk mentality, of Any of these tepubs taking aim at the present CiC as they cheered the leaving of the main mission, as their congresses rubber stamped the costs of thesewars and not the long term as to the veterans of, of why the troops were sent into that region and the promises, once again, to the Afgans!!!

    Romney to mother of Army daughter: How can Obama sleep at night?

    March 5, 2012 - A woman at a rally here tearfully asked Mitt Romney on Saturday why her Army daughter is still in Afghanistan nearly a year after the death of Osama bin Laden. He seized on her question to accuse President Obama of failing to clearly communicate the mission to U.S. troops serving there. read more
    Obama is leading as CiC the way the troops, the ones actually fighting not the officers, actually serving in want to be led, see or hear any movements from with the ranks alla Vietnam days, as they seek to get back, still, to some of that main mission abandoned now years back, a lost cause but they at least want some positives as to that mission and the promises the country made then, the gradual drawdown is what they want, that may be quickening after the Koran burning, if it does it's because of them!!

    But you can bet she and hubby were cheering on the Iraq war and condemning everyone not walking in lockstep with them and are probably cheering on invading Iran!!

    And any civilian's complaining, while I feel that pain and suffering you're going through, about any type of so called 'special treatment' put a cork in it, you haven't not only not Sacrificed, as to these wars and those sent, you haven't Demanded you should nor are you paying much attention to as one continues! Nor do many find anything wrong with the way businesses have operated under the so called free market capitalism. The only ones talking about and doing what they can, in the limits of our government branches, are this Administration and those with it and have been since before the oaths of office were taken!

    Troops, Veterans Will Benefit From Housing Settlement, Obama Says
    March 6, 2012 – Thousands of service members and veterans whose mortgages were wrongfully foreclosed on, or who were improperly denied lower mortgage interest rates in the national housing crisis, can receive “significant relief,” President Barack Obama announced today.

    “It is unconscionable that members of our armed forces and their families are among those who were most susceptible to losing their homes due to the unscrupulous acts of banks and mortgage lenders,” Obama said during a White House news briefing.

    Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta issued a statement, applauding the announcement. “These new steps are the result of an extensive interagency effort made by this administration to protect and support service members and veterans, and this initiative will help military families overcome obstacles to purchasing and maintaining a home,” Panetta said.

    Helping military families achieve personal and financial security “is a vital part of maintaining a strong national defense, just as home ownership is a vital part of fulfilling the American dream,” Panetta said.

    “I thank the president for ensuring that our service members receive the support they need so they and their families can pursue their dreams while carrying out their vital missions around the world,” he said.

    Federal and state officials announced Feb. 9 that the nation’s five largest mortgage lenders – Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and Ally Financial [formerly GMAC] – agreed to pay $26 billion to settle a government lawsuit claiming mortgage loan and foreclosure abuses. At least $20 billion is to be returned to aggrieved homeowners, according to White House and Housing and Urban Development Department news releases.

    “If you are a member of the armed forces whose home was wrongfully foreclosed, you will be substantially compensated,” the president said.  read more>>>

  •  Another Petition: Military community members (3+ / 0-)

    Military community members are banding together to get rid of Limbaugh on AFN

    Why This Is Important

    Dear Senators Levin and McCain,

    We are petitioning you to cut all ties between Rush Limbaugh and the American Forces Network, also known as the Armed Services Network. In your capacity as Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committe and as Senators, you are in a unique position to contact Secretary Panetta and question him as to the continued presence of a misogynist on military airwaves.

    Both of you have listened to testimony about sexual harassment in today's military. You both understand the severe toll that sexual harassment takes on the ability for our current force to its job well. In the first 18 month of the war in Iraq, over 100 cases of sexual assault were reported. Your esteemed colleague, Susan Collins, said at the time, “What does it say about us as a people, as a nation, as the foremost military in the world, when our women soldiers sometimes have more to fear from their fellow soldiers than from the enemy?”  read more and sign on
