We know "he who must not be named" has shown incredible disrespect toward combat veterans.

Well, it appears it must be a cultural thing in North Carolina -- if we can call the lack of culture and respect for soldiers who sacrifice for our freedoms "culture" at all.

It just breaks my heart so see that there is a political movement in this country that can lower itself to this kind of behavior:

http://www.vawatchdog.org/09/nf09/nfapr09/nf040309-8.htm

Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina, a Republican, who refused service in our military is blocking the appointment of Army Reserve Major Tammy Duckworth.

Understand that former Republican Presidential candidate Bob Dole dedicated his biography One Soldier's Story in part to Duckworth: "And to Major Tammy Duckworth ... a brave woman wounded in Iraq, who represents all of those with their own battles ahead of them, and their own stories to tell."

But there is a lower class of Republican that hates American combat vetrans.

In fact, in North Carolina, it appears Southern hatred for American combat vets is so severe that this low-life is blocking the nomination of a war hero who lost both her legs in combat against our enemies.

This article is sure to make it to Michigan State Police posts between Detroit and the Ohio line this weekend. Let's hope the folks coming to watch UNC at the Final Four get what they justly deserve.

Up here in the North, we respect those who serve. And we are not happy with North Carolina white trash littering our highways.

If she's not rich/well-connected enough to get out of combat duty, she's obviously not fit for public office.
