This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
Sometimes Republicans get a bad rap.
This news isn't helping.
Reports indicate that Republicans, down in Tampa for the GOP convention, have approved a platform that would ban abortion, ban gay marriage, and reshape Medicare into a voucher system while cutting taxes.
While both parties approve platforms at their conventions every election term, and details are routinely ignored - it is still disgusting to hear Republicans not only accept these plans, but applaud them, as well.
Here's what one Republican said:
"This ambitious blueprint projects a sea change in the way that government works. It offers a solution for workers without jobs, families without savings and neighborhoods without hope."
Some Democrats were down in Florida at the convention, and could not believe their ears on what they were hearing.
Here's what one shocked Democrat said about Mitt Romney:
"What you have seen from him is that he does one thing, he says another. He has taken one position after another, time and again you know, and you can't have it both ways."
We agree that this platform is outrageous, and is a slap in the face to all of the hard working minorities whom are a part of this great country, and deserve to have the same rights as everyone else!
