A veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars is suing a Boston-area landlord, alleging that he was passed over for a rental apartment because of his combat service.
Joel Morgan, 29, filed a complaint with the Suffolk Superior Court against Janice Roberts, 63, on May 25. Morgan claims that Roberts said she was a member of a grassroots organization opposed to the Iraq war and "would have problems renting to him," according to the complaint. Morgan served at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2003, was deployed twice to Iraq between 2007 and 2009, and completed a final tour in Afghanistan last year.
Though federal housing law does not prohibit discrimination against veterans, Massachusetts state law forbids owners from refusing to rent to someone because he or she is a veteran or member of the Armed Forces.

Come on guys, you know we can't have those crazy-assed, hair trigger, PTSD, violent psychopath vets just living wherever they want. All they do is get really drunk and have flashbacks and kill babies and old women. They should be in a nice little cage somewhere and we'll let them out the next time we pick a fight we're too pussy to fight ourselves, or the next time some big mean other country picks a fight with us. Then we'll be more than happy to cower behind you while calling you a hero and adorning our Subarus with yellow ribbon magnets.

Sincerely yours,
Liberal America

More fuel for my hate, LOL.

The savages this Guardsman has been fighting would not even let this woman own property.

In fact she wouldn't even be allowed to ride in the cab of the truck, but would instead get to ride in the back with the animals.
