SLDN Announces Mullen to Headline Military Tribute Marking One Year Anniversary of ?Don?t Ask, Don?t Tell? Repeal

SLDN Announces Mullen to Headline Military Tribute Marking One Year Anniversary of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Repeal

Admiral Mike Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 26, 2012

Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) today announced UBS, Verizon, and BNY Mellon as the inaugural sponsors of a tribute to former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, who will headline the celebration aboard the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City to mark the one-year anniversary of the repeal of the discriminatory “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law. The event – “Celebrating Our Heroes” – will take place on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, and will be the first in a series of high profile events hosted by SLDN across the country during the week to commemorate the first year of open service by America’s gay and lesbian service members. The anniversary of repeal is September 20.

“This historic and emotional event presents a unique – indeed, a once in a lifetime – opportunity to reinforce the meaningful part that Admiral Mullen played in the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ repeal process. No one played a more pivotal role than Admiral Mullen in securing the support of Congress and the military for repeal,” said Army Veteran and SLDN Executive Director Aubrey Sarvis.

Members of Congress and observers alike sat transfixed as he testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee on February 2, 2010, at the height of the repeal fight, saying:

“No matter how I look at the issue, I cannot escape being troubled by the fact that we have in place a policy which forces young men and women to lie about who they are in order to defend their fellow citizens. For me, it comes down to integrity – theirs as individuals and ours as an institution.”

“We thank our inaugural sponsors – UBS, Verizon, and BNY Mellon – for their strong commitment to equality in our nation’s military and for their generous support for all service members and veterans. Admiral Mullen represents the very best American values – integrity, commitment, and service. We are proud to see these employers aligned with him today and demonstrating a deep commitment to full LGBT equality in this country,” said Sarvis.

The New York City tribute on September 18 will begin with a VIP reception at 5:30 p.m. The general admission event will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will conclude at 9:30 p.m. For more information, to sponsor the event, or to purchase tickets, visit http://www.sldn.org/intrepid2012.

Edward Mandell House In 1913, “[Very] soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will effect our security as a chargeback for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer being unable to work and earn a living. They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges. They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud which we will call “Social Insurance.” Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may

Emily does the rap breakdown on Let Them Eat War during the Las Cruces, NM stop of the Vans Warped Tour 2009. Fat Mike started doing part of it, but he stumbled off stage after he saw Emily. www.facebook.com LYRICS: There’s a prophet on a mountain and he’s making up dinner With long division and riding crop Anybody can feel like a winner When it’s served up piping hot But the people aren’t looking for a handout They’re America’s working corps Can this be what they voted for? Let them eat war That’s how to ration the poor Let them eat war There’s an urgent need to feed Declining pride From the force to the union shops The war economy is making new jobs But the people who benefit most Are breaking bread with their benevolent hosts Who never stole from the rich to give to the poor All they ever gave to them was a war And a foreign enemy to deplore [CHORUS] We’ve got to kill ’em and eat ’em Before they reach for their checks Squeeze some blue collars Make ’em bleed from their necks Seize a few dollars from the people who sweat Cause it’s freedom or debt and they won’t question it At a job site the boss is God-like Conditioned workhorses park at a stoplight Seasoned vets with their feet in nets A stones throw away from a rock fight But not tonight, feed em death Here comes another ration (feed them death) Cause they’re the finest in the nation (feed them death) When there’s nothing left to feed them When it’s freedom or it’s death [CHORUS]

Q&A: Don’t Liberals understand the meaning of Freedom of Religion and ILLEGAL in the State of Texas?

Question by plezurgui: Don’t Liberals understand the meaning of Freedom of Religion and ILLEGAL in the State of Texas?
Their actions have been adjudicated as ILLEGAL all the way up to the Texas Supreme Court. Now, they want to force these people to give up their Freedom of Religion anyway!
Someone should go to jail over this, do you agree? If not, please explain.
Duh, the court said seizure of the children was illegal, so why haven’t they returned the children?
Liberals in Texas have proven they have no business wielding the power over free people.

What is the history of freedom of religion in the u.s?

Best answer:

Answer by aresee
I can’t answer the first part to your question but as to the second part. I don’t know what religion you are, but whatever you are, would you like to be told you can’t follow it? Freedom of choice is one of the most important things in life. And at this time of year, we have to remember and be grateful to so many who gave their lives so that we have that freedom.

America: Freedom to Fascism (also America: From Freedom to Fascism or (per the title card) America: Freedom to Fascism Volume One) is a 2006 film by Aaron Russo. It was exhibited in theaters in select US cities.[1] This documentary covers many subjects, including: the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the income tax, Federal Reserve System, national ID cards (REAL ID Act), human-implanted RFID tags (Spychips), Diebold electronic voting machines,[2] globalization, Big Brother, taser weapons abuse,[3] and the alleged use of terrorism by government as a means to diminish the citizens’ rights. Some of the premises of the film include: The Federal Reserve System is unconstitutional and has maxed out the national debt and bankrupted the United States government. Federal income taxes were imposed in response to, or as part of, the plan implementing the Federal Reserve System. Federal income taxes are unconstitutional or otherwise legally invalid. The use of the Federal income tax to counter the economic effects of the Federal Reserve System is futile. The film’s claims about the illegality of the income tax in the United States have been critiqued as factually dubious by some reviewers.[4] The film has, however, developed a cult following
