A Truth Journal: Corrupt Billionaires Denied: Obama Gets 2nd Term Mandate, More Firsts Too:
From Denny: Kiss off, billionaire Koch Brothers - and park your XL Pipeline where the sun doesn't shine. President Obama's back in town. And he has a lot of female company. Even though this was primarily an election to protect the status quo, rejecting a societal return to the set of Mad Men, there were some "firsts."
There are five new female senators, completing a 20 group, the largest amount ever in the Senate. Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren is the first woman senator elected from the state of Massachusetts in its history. Col. Tammy Duckworth, a disabled Iraq War vet, won her Illinois House seat after getting trashed by the Republicans as not patriotic enough. She only lost both her legs in service to her country. Wisconsin's Senator-elect Tammy Baldwin is the first openly gay woman elected too.
And the territory of Puerto Rico voted for the first time by 54 percent to decide to become America's 51st state. It is a non-binding resolution which means Congress has to approve it. Puerto Rico has done a lot of soul-searching for decades on this issue. To date, as a territory, they are not allowed to vote - yet are American citizens. How will their vote, if granted, change the political process? Can you imagine just how much the Republicans will fight to stop that possibility? It's their worst nightmare.
