Why is it that thetea party members consumed with"Constitutional Rights" are also the same tea party members espousing voter suppression and making sure that only "the right people" get to cast a ballot?

I saw Sen. Inouye talking about the Pearl Harbor attack on some History Channel presentation just the other night. He described seeing 3 Japanese planes fly right over his head and realizing that his life had changed forever. He was a Red Cross volunteer at his high school and was involved in the rescue and recovery operation, mostly recovery. He explained that he had to pick up the body of a woman who had been decapitated by a bomb. Her dead baby was still clutched in her arms. He was 17 years old and had never been exposed to any kind of violence, let alone this kind.

Shame on this gibberish-spouting lunatic Kelly for desecrating the memory of the dead. He is a national disgrace.

Sen. Daniel Inouye was too kind. He and others who have served or lost loved ones in any war should demand an apology and a public statement by the politician who decries "Just like Pearl Harbor, or 9-11 or Nazis" or any self serving illusion that a law or mandate could be as terrible and horrible as a massive loss of life. I hold as my belief that they sully the memory of those KIA or MIA and historical accounts by cheapening it to fit their "sound bite du jour." Kelly is another one of the Great Big Lying Mouths of The Cult AKA the GOP. Shameless and petty. A vile small worm of a man. He should be slapped across the face.

Kelly bio at Wikipedia

He is 63, old enough to have known plenty of WW2 veterans. He inherited the family car dealership and went to Notre Dame on a football scholarship. He is exactly the right age for Vietnam but military service is conspicuously absent from any of his bios. A worm indeed.

The President of the United States
Iin the name of The Congress

Medal of Honor
to

Inouye, Daniel K.

Rank and organization: Second Lieutenant, U.S. Army, Company E, 442nd Infantry. Place and date: San Terenzo, Italy, 21 April 1945. Birth: 7 September 1924, Honolulu, Hawaii. Entered service at: Honolulu, Hawaii.

Citation:
Second Lieutenant Daniel K. Inouye distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action on 21 April 1945, in the vicinity of San Terenzo, Italy. While attacking a defended ridge guarding an important road junction, Second Lieutenant Inouye skillfully directed his platoon through a hail of automatic weapon and small arms fire, in a swift enveloping movement that resulted in the capture of an artillery and mortar post and brought his men to within 40 yards of the hostile force. Emplaced in bunkers and rock formations, the enemy halted the advance with crossfire from three machine guns. With complete disregard for his personal safety, Second Lieutenant Inouye crawled up the treacherous slope to within five yards of the nearest machine gun and hurled two grenades, destroying the emplacement. Before the enemy could retaliate, he stood up and neutralized a second machine gun nest. Although wounded by a sniper’s bullet, he continued to engage other hostile positions at close range until an exploding grenade shattered his right arm. Despite the intense pain, he refused evacuation and continued to direct his platoon until enemy resistance was broken and his men were again deployed in defensive positions. In the attack, 25 enemy soldiers were killed and eight others captured. By his gallant, aggressive tactics and by his indomitable leadership, Second Lieutenant Inouye enabled his platoon to advance through formidable resistance, and was instrumental in the capture of the ridge. Second Lieutenant Inouye’s extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit on him, his unit, and the United States Army.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
