“At 11:30, Carper will attend the National Prayer Luncheon at Dover Air Force Base. The luncheon is being held to bring people together to reflect and recognize the values upon which the nation was founded.“
We didn’t get an invitation. What does Sen. Carper say are the values that are nation was founded upon?
At the risk of sounding trite, or confrontational, or uncivil, or merely cynical, I wonder, is it just me, or is it purely happenstance that he’ll be cutting a ribbon on another taxpayer funded boondoggle, lauding his big-government-is-the-answer self shortly after the luncheon? Further, on close reading, it is obvious that the values question raised is not something Carper is speaking on, rather, it’s the subject of the gathering, which Carper will surely dodge while nodding reverently …
This six minutes after a story on FNC with a Brig. General who was terminated by his employer, illegally, when he returned from a tour overseas. He took his case all the way to the US Justice Dept., the court of last resort (in a four or five step process, in which the burden appears to be on the employee), and became a statistic, one of the vast majority of cases that the Obama Justice Dept. declined to even hear. Did you miss that? One of the vast majority of cases that the Obama Justice Dept. declined to even hear. His employer? Wait for it. The federal government.
Carper always touts himself as a staunch supporter of the military. Words or deeds? A carefully composed, not homogenized question on this serviceman’s loss of employment, and a direct followup would be good on Saturday afternoon. And combined with the original question by virtue of the timing and the venue — killer!!
