Senator Byrd calls for an end to funding the war in Iraq.
I've had a love-hate relationship with my state's senior senator for over 35 yrs now. Let's face it, Bob Byrd hasn't always been the most enlightened politician in America. He once belonged to the KKK and he filibustered against the Civil Rights Act back in . . . uh, . . . I think 1966. . . please correct me if I'm wrong.
Since the Corpo-fascist Moron Monkey Boy administration took over America and began shredding the Constitution of the United States, invaded the Mid East and pillaged the national treasury, I have grown to respect and truly admire the statesman and man Senator Byrd has become. He has been a lone voice at times railing against this war from the start and defending the Constitution of the United State at every turn. How sad that other senators haven't felt the urgency to defend and protect our country from within the walls of congress.
We elected a senate and house with a democrat majority. Nothing seems to have changed. Time for other options.
