WOMEN ARE NOT PROTECTED in the U. S. Constitution – Here Are the Ramifications

The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, may appear to safeguard women against discrimination, but Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia went on record insisting this isn’t the case. 

“Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex, the only issue is whether it prohibits it.  It doesn’t.  Nobody ever voted for that,” he said.

(In an interview for the January 2011 issue of California Lawyer)

VETERANS FOR PEACE: Educating Our Children for Peace – Our Legacy to Our Children

VETERANS FOR PEACE: Educating Our Children for Peace – Our Legacy to Our Children

By Ed Sacco, Veterans forPeace, Asheville Chapter 099  July 4, 2018

It blinds us to the common good of humanity. Is this our legacy for children?
