Thirty U.S. American troops reported killed Saturday in an Afghanistan helicopter crash emphasizes the need for the U.S. to end operations sooner rather than later in that theatre of war, according to a Iraq/Afghanistan U.S. Marine veteran, who now is chair of the Veterans Caucus of the California Democratic Party.

Nyabingi Kuti: Our resolution played a major role in the Governor’s decision to halt construction on the condemned inmate Taj Mahal at San Quentin, a few days before the convention. All supporters of the resolution can take credit for this savings of half a billion dollars. I think he will come around sooner, rather than later, for fiscal and moral reasons.

Most voters know very little about the candidates and still more don’t know there is an election on Jan 8 and Jan 9.
