Anyone able to imagine one’s own child in a pool of its own blood would have to be against a society that writes off millions of dead children as collateral damage. US military action in Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Iraq alone, brought death to 5 million dead kids! If one is a normal human being and loves all children as one’s own, being anti the Americans doing, or in agreement with, the killing, is a loving attitude.
Just a straight up submission, no drafting or saving. Needs a minimum of 100 characters so I’ll type a bit more. The error box is bright red, which is a bit harsh. Am I up to 100 characters. I must be getting close. Okay, submit again. Agh, still wants 100. Is it 100 words. That might be. In that case, we should change the error to say 100 words, instead of just 100. I wonder how many words this is. Not fair to have to count them myself! ha! Okay submitting again on the hope that i have 100. Ugh. still says I need to get to 100 words. How do I do this. Maybe it isn’t 100 words. Maybe it is 100 something elses. If that’s true, I’m lost. One hundred cats? One hundred blocks of cheese? Oh, please let me have a successful submission!

Governor Scott just vetoed the entire state budget and education funding bills including funding for child care, affordable housing, clean water, fighting the opioid crisis and our state colleges. The education funding bill is what ensures our schools are open to all students to receive the high-quality education they deserve.

If you want to speak out against the veto, and support teachers, unions, and collective bargaining, come to the rally Wednesday afternoon from 4:30-5:30 at Pliny Park. Other rallies are being held across the state, including in Putney & Bellows Falls.
