Wake Up And Live

Sad

CNN reported this:

Congress has dropped legislation that would have expanded hate crime laws to include attacks on gays after it became clear the measure wouldn’t pass the House, aides said Thursday…..

…..The development is a blow to civil rights groups which say that broadening federal laws are necessary to address a rise in crimes motivated by hate based upon a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

    I know. I heard this too, and I was furious. Aparently a democratic congress and House isn’t enough to get these kinds of things passed. I mean, we are still in this terrible war too. I am so frustrated because it seems like NO ONE is doing ANYTHING on the Hill!
