Do you support Gov. Sam Brownback's income tax cuts?

Some of us who receive these so called "entitlements" are married, work full time and still cannot afford to put food on the table or insurance for our children.
Just because some people are on food stamps/medicaid, doesn't mean they're lazy...it just means that it's practically impossible to get to the next rung in this State.
And Brownback is just making it worse. His policies are creating a massive class gap, while his cronies are trying to convince you that the only people who receive these entitlements, don't deserve them anyhow.
Don't buy it.

Abortion providers argue Kansas' new regulations aren't backed by data

Okay...you keep calling them abortion doctors. I never once received (or was offered) an abortion at PP. I was given a well woman exam and a couple handfuls of condoms. I also was uninsured...so they were a godsend. And another thing...the doctors were women, most definitely were not perverts and very obviously not drug addicts. They were healthy, understanding women who advocated personal responsibility and healthy living choices. Had you ever been there for a well woman check up, you would know this.

Also, on your religious points- I work towards social justice every single day of my life, have attended college for a degree in social welfare, and vehemently oppose violence. I am not a Christian...but that is not to say that I am not spiritual. Christianity is not the only faith that believes in those things, Jayhawk...and quite honestly Christians are some of the most judging, violent and opposed to social justice I have seen. I'm not trying to attack your religion by any means...but please do not attack those who do not believe in your religion. Yours is not the only valid belief system in the world...and not the only way to God.

Recall effort?

These are the grounds for recall: http://www.ncsl.org/default.aspx?tabi...
We just need to figure out how to use these grounds in our favor. Unfortunately in Kansas, incompetence is not one of them.
The statue reads:
Kansas-Conviction for a felony, misconduct in office, incompetence, or failure to perform duties prescribed by law. No recall submitted to the voters shall be held void because of the insufficiency of the grounds, application, or petition by which the submission was procured. (KS Stat. ยง25-4301)
