The NAACP Prefers to Stay on Ideological Plantation by Slinging Lies About Tea Party

I think the NAACP has done to itself what the feminist movement did to itself in the ’90s when, for naked, partisan reasons, it wouldn’t repudiate that rake, rapist, and raconteur Bill Clinton for his misogyny. Instead they turned their sites on the “little bit nutty, little bit slutty,” Paula Jones and lost their credibility. The NAACP is going after the Tea Party with racism and bigotry and they will short circuit their own honorable mission by tainting it with partisanship which should have been beneath their dignity. That is wasn’t is to their everlasting shame.

Congress Exempts Self From Veterans’ Hiring Law

After all of the lip service given to Veterans for so many years and urging business to Hire Returning Vets, we now learn that Congress has largely exempted itself from the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act, “a law that aids post-military employment for Veterans.”

The law provides veterans with prioritized opportunities to land government jobs, but veterans who apply for jobs with the Architect of the Capitol, U.S. Capitol Police, the Congressional Budget Office and some support positions in the House and Senate do not receive this affirmative-action-type boost, potentially preventing veterans from getting jobs.”

While Congress moved to apply VEOA to itself when the law passed in 1998, it required that extra steps be taken to tailor rules to the congressional workplace. But according to OOC’s report and aides familiar with the process, Congress has not voted to pass the regulations for years, potentially hindering some veterans from getting jobs in the legislative branch.”

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R. Ca), a US Marine Veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq is pushing for Congress to follow the law themselves.
