Science takes a beating in early presidential campaign

*grabbing some popcorn* and awaiting for the tin foil hat Brownback supporters to way in. I know what we need...an engineer's misrepresentation of science.

We voted as a state for 19th century science standards and we are going to get it!

Teacher bonus

Remember when teachers, public employees, Planned Parenthood, NPR and PBS crashed the stock market, wiped out half of our 401Ks, took trillions in TARP money, spilled oil in the Gulf of Mexico, gave themselves billions in bonuses, and paid no taxes?
Yeah, me neither. Pass it on.

Kansas University censures professor for behavior during incident involving parking ticket

I guess it depends on being so desperate in wanting to attack KU with accusations that are quickly shown to be wrong.

I don't care about this professor....he sounds like a jerk, but you have zero credibility.

How many more mis-statements are you planning on this one little story?

Abortion rights activist plans to open new abortion clinic in Wichita

Brownback is using Kansas taxpayer money to hire Koch Brothers' legal team to go after Planned Parenthood. He could use the state attorney general as a defense counsel at no extra cost to Kansas taxpayers.

Stay classy teabaggers/Republicans/ChristianFundamentalists/C-street nutjobs.

Faith-based policy

A born again Christian using spurious arguments in support of the Fundamentalist/C-street house Governor. Well, considered me shocked by this event. Shocked.

I always love the "i'm not a democrat or a republican", but they support the most extreme views of only one of the parties. Okay, pie-eyed crazy person. It reminds of the always fun statement..."I'm not a racist, but (insert messed up racist statement)."

Video game ruling ignores reality

Don't let data in the way of our conclusions......Violence and porn exposure...What about the children!!! Sorry for the length....tapping into my inner Merrill.

1) http://www.pbs.org/kcts/videogamerevo....

2) several major studies by groups such as The Harvard Medical School Center for Mental Health, The Journal of Adolescent Health, and The British Medical Journal have shown no conclusive link between video game usage and violent activity."[21][22][23] wikipedia

3) We can all agree that exposure to porn is easier than at any other time in human history (thanks Internet!!). AND YET....

"If porn consumption inspired people—men people—to commit sex crimes, which a not-surprising number of people who went to college in the 80s and 90s still believe, then the current and historically unprecedented ubiquity of hardcore porn should have led to an explosion of sex crimes, right? It didn't happen.

Sex crimes against children: Down 53 percent between 1992 and 2006.
Abortion: The abortion rate has dropped by about 25 percent since 1993.
Teen pregnancy: In 2009, teen pregnancy hit its lowest rate in the 70 years that the federal government has been tracking the statistic.
Divorce: The U.S. divorce rate is at its lowest level since 1970.
Domestic violence: The rate of reported domestic violence in the U.S. dropped by more than half between 1993 and 2004.
Rape: The forcible rape rate in the U.S. has dropped from 41.1 per 100,000 people in 1990 to 28.7 in 2009. That latter figure is also an all-time low."

4) Read "the culture of fear" for why people's perception of violent crime rate has risen when it has actually fallen over the past 20 years.

Federal judge blocks Kansas licensing rules for abortion clinics

Jobs, debt = clearly #1 priorities....AFTER we finish attacking women's rights and searching for non-existent voter fraud (ok, you might find 10 bad votes in the 7th most Republican state in the country).

The lesson...don't let religious fundamentalists run things.
