My grandmother didn’t really grow up on a farm per say, but they had animals. And one thing she told me when I was way little was “Beware the rooster that ruled the roost brought into a bigger hen house with more roosters. They are the ones that will cause problems.” It’s the first thing I thought about here, Paul thinking he’s all the shit literally denying jobs to Vets. I’d slap his silly face given half the chance.
The Veterans Job Corps bill was held up in the Senate late Wednesday night after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) filibustered to gain support for the release of a Pakistani doctor who helped locate Osama bin Laden.
The bill, which has bi-partisan support, would create a veterans jobs training program, costing $1 billion over five years.
“A vet job bill – does that deserve a fight?” Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) asked after a Senate roll call.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) argued that his filibuster took “15 minutes” and was for a good cause – to call for the release of Shakil Afridi, the Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA find bin Laden.
