“Their Pervert”

Sure, Roy Moore may be a pervert, but to Alabama Republicans he is “their pervert” and they must vote for him or risk a Democrat being elected. Republicans don’t care that he may be a child molester as long as he is on the Republican ticket.

To those who say ‘it was a long time ago’ I would ask “How do you know?” These complaints came after 40 years, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t little girls who were molested more recently and are still afraid to say anything.

Keep in mind that when interviewed by Sean Hannity, Moore said he didn’t “generally” date teens. That is definitely not an absolute denial of what was written in the Washington Post. He admits to knowing some of those mentioned in the article.

Alabama Republicans think that they can escape the reality of choosing a man who may have molested little girls rather than a man who pursued justice for little girls murdered in their church. They may have a hard time getting forgiveness for that decision.

Update: Teresa Jones tweets “As a Deputy DA in Gadsden when Roy Moore was there, it was common knowledge about Roy’s propensity for teenage girls. I’m appalled that these women are being skewered for the truth”. Now it starts, and it will just get worse. People are going to start telling the truth after keeping silent for years.

Veterans Day

PoppyAt the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 the guns fell silent. The Great War, The War to End All Wars, was over…for a couple of decades.

The red poppies of Flanders fields became a symbol of that war and the veterans that returned from it. Known as Remembrance Day in much of the world, the poppies will be in evidence. Remembrance Day observances have more in common with the American Memorial Day as a day to honor those who have died in war.

First called Armistice Day in the United States, the name was changed to Veterans Day, and its purpose changed to honoring those who are serving, or have served in the military. The change was made to avoid a conflict with the existing Memorial Day observance that goes back to the Civil War era.

A heart felt salute to everyone who managed to survive basic training. We can hope that sooner, rather than later, there will be no need for another generation to put on uniforms.
