Republican Veterans voted against themselves. You can go on-line and see what senators voted against veterans, jobs, workman’s comp, food assistance program, I could go on and on. Dozens of Laws could have been passed to aid veterans but were voted down by Republicans. (Thom Hartmann 11/11/14.) They must want more veterans. Where will the money come from for any war?
Republicans voted against Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and have convinced women there is no war-on-women. I have a friend involved in CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates.) http://www.casaforchildren.org/site/c.mtJSJ7MPIsE/b.5301295/k.BE9A/Home.htm
Missouri’s governor, Jay Nixon, may regret his decision to not appoint an outside special prosecutor in racially-charged Ferguson, Missouri. No wonder Democrats are ineffective in Missouri and keep getting stuck with Roy Blunt.
A worthy side-note only a short drive west on Hwy.70 to Fulton, Missouri you’ll find the home of Celia, the Slave museum. A college librarian introduced me to Celia, a young slave in1855 so repeatedly raped she was forced to murder her master-owner. Looks like there have no changes in humanity in 159 years in the same Missouri area. Read Celia’s story at http://www.amazon.com/Celia-Slave-Melton-A-Mclaurin/dp/0380803364
