Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

Grandma Gets Iraq Duty


A grandmother in eastern Iowa is getting one last call to duty.

Janet Grass, 52, had planned to retire from the military in about 10 months after spending 19 years in the U.S. Navy Reserve. Instead, she has been ordered to leave her job as a special-education teacher in Cascade to do security work in the Middle East.

"They're changing my career just as I'm retiring," she said. "I guess they wanted to try one more thing for me."

Ordered to Iraq 10 months before retirement

Dear God, this is all so messed up! Almost the same thing happened in my small home town in Maryland...they called up a 49 year old man for active duty in Iraq. I honestly thought that there was some sort of cut off age for active duty, but I guess Bush did away with it! Too bad none of his family members, or friends, or people from HIS social circle have been sent off to Iraq!
