Well, there’s a lot of good intentions by Republicans and my colleagues and some who are working very hard. But I think the biggest flaw that we’ve had over the last decade or so is the idea that there’s a secret policy that builds the conduit to all of our communities.

We know skills-based education can fix our nation’s growing skills gap by providing students and job seekers with the skills and hands-on experience they need to improve their own lives…We were disappointed to see the construction sector was specifically excluded from participating in IRAPs…If we are going to meet the growing demand for apprenticeships in our nation, it would be a mistake to exclude any industry or sector…Working together, we can ensure that IRAPs create as many career opportunities as possible by encouraging employer innovation and allowing students and families the freedom to choose the path that is best for them.

Look back a few decades ago when our black brothers and sisters needed us to be able to drink out of the same water fountain or sit down at the same lunch counter, many conservatives, many evangelicals looked the other way.

Is this something that’s a defense mechanism from another country? We do know that China is looking at hypersonic missiles, that’s 25,000 KM or to break it down into our language that’s getting from D.C. where I’m at to L.A. in about nine minutes. We don’t know if the nuclear warheads can be attached to those, is it something like that or is it something more? We don’t know but I feel like it’s something we must take a look at, and that’s why we’ve written Secretary Spencer of the Navy.
