To the editor:
How can anyone be “offended” when caught indulging in the very offensive behavior of snooping and spying on American citizens? What is the governmental purpose of monitoring Twitter, Facebook and/or email for the name of “Brownback”? There are no justifiable reasons in a country upholding free speech.
Aren’t the behaviors exhibited by our governor those demonstrated by dictators and usually associate with thin-skinned, low-self-esteem or psychologically disturbed individuals?
He so publicly parades his religion that his incident begs the question: What was he setting as an example? Was this an example of “do unto others…,” “forgive seven times seventy…” or “judge not…”? It’s rather difficult to find a Christian tenet in his actions, isn’t it?
The governor should put the tax money and manpower that he is wasting on spying and harassment back into the school coffers. May he contemplate the shame that he has brought to his office and to the state of Kansas.
