Finally, A Senator Speaks Out

Many thanks to Jordon Cooper for the reprint of Senator Robert Byrd’s speech delivered on the floor of the U.S. Senate. I didn’t hear a peep about this from the mainstream American media, which is hardly surprising. They’ve been keeping our populace in ignorance since before I can remember.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all those milquetoasts running for the Democratic nomination for president would take up this speech as their rallying cry? Don’t hold your breath.

Of course, cynics will say that Byrd is in his mid-80’s, has a rock-solid safe seat, and doesn’t have to give a shit. So what? His words desperately need to be heard.
