Because freedom can't protect itself
The consequences of combat are a game changer! We should think carefully before women rush into these roles without support structures in place when they return home. Women are basically kicked to the curb when they are victims of sexual assaults. I would love to see the ACLU focus on the women who have been discharged with personalitity disorder after being raped. I think that would be an shining example of honoring women this Memorial Day!
The best way to honor the dead and wounded service personnel is to stop pretending that wars improve our security. I would feel a lot better about women if they were on the forefront of stopping wars instead being complicit in maintaining eternal warfare
Just in case the Florida House and the Governor don't remember, they are piublc employees. They work for us, we,the taxpayers,we pay their salaries and their healthcare benefits. By the way, they shot down an ammendment that would have required them to pay the same for their healthcare as other piublc employees. Gee, whatever happened to what's good for the goose. Oh, I forgot, Florida is Republican controlled.
