Tuesday was the fourth anniversary of “the end of major combat operations in Iraq.” Also on Tuesday, in Los Angeles the police fired rubber bullets and tear gas on protesters, clubbing and kicking people in the crowd, including a news crew. The president, after weeks of claiming Congress is endangering our troops by not funding his war spending bill, vetoes the bill when it is delivered. It has been a week filled with scandal and tragedy. Thursday’s Republican debate should be an interesting addition to the week. To top of this already sad week, Friday is the 37th anniversary of the Kent State Massacre. The photo above is from Tuesday’s Los Angeles rally. It is eerily all too familiar.
