Washington State Bill Protects Veterans

State Senator Steve Hobbs, a DEMOCRAT, who already has served in Iraq for several months, introduced a bill in the State Senate of Washington that would add “honorably discharged veterans or military status” to a state law that already bans discrimination in housing, employment and insurance based on race, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or religion.

Isn’t it interesting that so-called “patriotic” right wingers have said nothing and done nothing to protect members of the armed forces from being abused and dehumanized.
