The Panhandle Grassroots for Democracy is working to improve our corner of eastern West Virginia, our state and our nation.

Via Eschaton, I found this. Right wing nuts in Martinsburg expressed many the same sentiments to me:
Staff Sgt. Jason Rivera, 26, a Marine recruiter in Pittsburgh, went to the home of a high school student who had expressed interest in joining the Marine Reserve to talk to his parents.

It was a large home in a well-to-do suburb north of the city. Two American flags adorned the yard. The prospect's mom greeted him wearing an American flag T-shirt.

"I want you to know we support you," she gushed.

Rivera soon reached the limits of her support.

"Military service isn't for our son. It isn't for our kind of people," she told him.

Chickenhawks. Willing to support the war 100 percent -- as long as other people do the fighting and dying. Cold, heartless right wing cowards unwilling to stand up for their beliefs.
