Manning sentence

Updated to reflect correct gender.

It's depressing. Bradley Chelsea Manning got 35 years, supposedly in Leavenworth, not the most pleasant prison.

Unfortunately, there's no way to get him her out in the near future. Hillary won't offer any hope. She loves authoritarianism. Remember, this is the lady who gave us a flag burning amendment. Thanks, Hillary! And with the Supreme Court leaning right, there's no hope there either.

I think we should start to demand that high schools around the country be renamed "Pfc. Bradley Chelsea Manning HS". And streets, too. Let's name at least three streets after him her each month. Let's also "adopt" stretches of highway in his her name. What we can't do is forget about him Chelsea and let him her languish in that hole.

Probably his her jailers will torment him her, because they have little nit brains. If that happens, I hope he she finds the moxie to say, "You've accomplished nothing in life. I changed the world."

Poor Bradley Chelsea. I'm going to write him her a letter this evening. You should too. (If a new mailing address is assigned to him her, I'll update this post.)
