By now I am sure the majority of the nation has viewed the video of a Marine named David telling off Washington State Congressman Brian Baird and his angry comment, “ Stay away from my kids.”
It was my honor to have been present and in the audience of some 2800 citizens to witness David’s confrontation of our congressman.
David was rightfully angered by the recent action of congressman Baird’s, as is seen in his confronting Congressman Baird.
David alluded to an earlier comment on parenting that did not set well with neither him nor a lot of the audience.
Below is what congressman Baird had to say earlier in the town hall to another Veteran named Jeff, who also expressed his displeasure not only with congressman Baird, but with both of our Major Political Parties.
It was Jeff who brought out the provision to fund and set-up “home visitation programs” to educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills. Take note of Baird’s poor attempt at justifying government supplied information on parenting.
"CVTV footage, obtained pursuant to the Public Disclosure Act, in no way is intended by CVTV, the City of Vancouver, or Clark County to either promote or oppose any candidate for public office or any ballot proposition."
Please note, I have edited out portions of Jeff's question and congressman Baird's reply unrelated to the question on "home visitation programs."
