Dear President Obama,
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
FIRE GENERAL AMOS!!!
THE US SENATE IS SCHEDULED TO VOTE ON DADT TOMORROW
Congressman Steny Hoyer of Maryland let the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in the House of Representatives, for the SECOND Time, the first being last June.
The leaders of the repeal in the US Senate seem to be Senators Lieberman and Snow, and a vote is expected over the weekend. Senator Reid is said to be ready to schedule the vote.
Four US Republican Senators have indicated their support of the repeal of DADT:Senators Scott Brown, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Olympia Snow. It is hoped that they will stand up for the repeal.
Senator Lieberman is quoted in the Washington Post as saying:
“I am confident that we have more than 60 votes to end this law that discriminates against military service members based solely on their sexual orientation. Repealing ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ will affirm the Senate’s commitment to the civil rights of all Americans and also make our military even stronger.”
The fact that the civil rights of gay and lesbian citizens of the USA is being held down the wire of strategies seems appalling. Listening to the gay-haters in the US Congress speak about how harmful we could be in the service of this country is frankly unforgivable.
FIRE GENERAL AMOS
General Amos, the Commandant of the US Marines, deserves to be fired immediately. He clearly will not work with you or Secretary Gates to implement this policy, should it be passed. He has demonstrated his ability to go his own way and directly oppose both you and other superior officers.
General Amos said, “I don’t want to lose any Marines to distraction. I don’t want to have any Marines that I’m visiting at Bethesda (hospital) with no legs.” He may not know that the first casualty of the War in Iraq was a US Marine, a GAY MARINE, who lost his leg. This General needs to GO!
