To the editor:
I want to congratulate the Kansas House of Representatives on a job well done. In the past few days they have put out a lot of special, highly important things.
They’ve debated in committee the destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21 (cue the music from “Plan 9 from Outer Space”). Never mind it’s a nonbinding resolution; we have to be against it because it smacks of rampant environmentalism.
They passed and sent to the Kansas Senate some of the most restrictive anti-abortion legislation in the country. Lance Kinzer, a leading anti-abortion representative, hopes the Senate will take the bill up and pass it quickly. This, because the governor’s pen is dripping ink ready to sign it and make it a state law. Women, you do realize that if this law passes, your doctor can outright lie to you and you will have no recourse? In essence, if the governor signs it, then it will protect unethical medical practices.
These are but two of the things that have come before deciding on a redistricting map so we will know who our choices are when we vote. It’s not at all important for us to know what district we’re in when we vote. That falls behind Agenda 21, anti-abortion legislation and (Secretary of State) Kobach’s laws.
Yes, congratulations to the Kansas House. You have once again demonstrated to the country and to the rest of the world just how backward, parochial and adolescent Kansas is. Thank you. Well done.
