OPINION: Marine Corps vet based in Arkansas disagrees with Sen. Tom Cotton decision

Forced arbitration un-American

By Robert Mitchell Special to the Democrat-Gazette

This article was published July 31, 2017 at 4:30 a.m.

I am a proud Marine Corps veteran. Abroad I joined with my fellow Marines in united pursuit of justice and rights. At home, I fight for them and other U.S. military members to be treated fairly and with dignity in their financial affairs. I'm disappointed by the actions of my U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, who is seeking to roll back a recent rule that restores service members' and other Americans' legal rights in the financial marketplace.

Hear hear, Mr. Mitchell. Shameful but predictable that Cotton, who so often touts his own military service, would support stripping service members of such an important protection. Everyone should reach out to him to say "How dare you."

Oh how wrong you are Mr. Mitchell, as only Mr. Cotton ever , in the whole USA history ever served in the military so his word is sacred. the ADG with their agenda of the media arm of the repugnants have told only he knows the way our foreign policy should be run as well as our military [ somewhat silent on his views on submarine warfare though] policy , both from an organizational standpoint and a combat organizational standpoint.

I just dont buy your thoughts Mr. Mitchell as how could anyone else ever surpass Mr. cotton in military overall knowledge? Those imaginary beings who vacationed in Vietnam, Republic of , with the joys of the weather, a tough foe and of course bugs, snakes, etc ever be considered to have a thought , that is a thought that was not of a super lifer ?

I am glad there is only one holy view of these issues as evidenced by Mr. Cotton and supported by the ADG with its editorial page to overwhelm any allowable side column. As you know in Arkansas if there is only one way to think and that of a red state thought, it takes away the stress of learning and rational thought. that way we have time to bring us together by building monuments to the sky.

by the way Mr. Cotton thank you for your service , and by the way you too Mr. Griffin [ what he served too?] .. Dang it there is two!

Thank you, Mr. Mitchell. You should consider running for office as though currently serving Arkansas in Congress tend to serve the interests of big business--not the little people.

Well ranger Tom is the Koch brothers loyal warrior and the important goals of the GOP(and Kochs) are the well being of the rich ,so service members are in the same boat as the 400,000 lower income and sick Arkansans ranger Tom has been trying to take health care away from ,just peasants let them eat cake.
