Poison Pero is RIGHT!

Mayor Gayle McLaughlin (D - Richmond, California)

"I choose to honor our veterans, not only on Veteran’s Day, but daily, but supporting an end to military warfare to prevent further fighting and dying in needless wars...I am a strong supporter of Veterans for Peace and Iraq Vets Against the War."

- Explaning why she skipped this year's Veteran's Day celebration.

A couple things you shouldn't be surprised by:
1.  She's a Democrat.
2.  She chose to attend the local 'Occupy' event instead...A much more logical choice for a Democrat who is honest about being a Liberal.

"I think it’s disgraceful.  This is not a war issue. This is an issue of honoring people who sign up to protect your rights...It’s disrespectful...Just because you’re in politics doesn’t mean everything is political. There are some things that transcend politics and this is one of them. Regardless of your feelings about America’s involvement in Iraq or Afghanistan, you have to respect the troops." - Jeff Rubin

Unfortunately, when it comes to most Liberals "everything is political."  And their disgust for our current wars isn't about these particular wars...Their disgust is with the military itself.

Which is why I actually hold this mayor in higher regard than most of her Democrat peers:  She didn't even bother taking part in the hypocritical charade.
