Teen rethinking apology letter to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback

Hard to do detailed analysis in 140 characters.

But why should she apologize to you? She wasn't commenting to you or about you. In fact, if Brownback didn't pay his staff to make a mountain out of a molehill you'd have never heard of her comment.

Teen rethinking apology letter to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback

So you think it would have been better if she'd actually interrupted his speech and made her comment to him? Odd notion.

From now on, Emma, make sure you actually DO act childish and interrupt public appearances instead of just trying to get your comment to fit in the 140 character limitation available on Twitter.

And there's the only apology letter she should consider: "Dear Gov. Brownback, I'm very sorry that I wrote that I said 'you suck' to your face instead of just making a comment to my friends. From now on, I'll make sure I say 'Brownback sucks' and 'he blows a lot' loudly and publicly."

Wow - so you're OK with the government monitoring your statements and making a complaint to your boss if they don't like what you said?

And seriously, you're complaining because she didn't actually interrupt the man and make her comment? So, if she'd done something like yell "You lie!" during his speech, that would've been cool with you, right?

You know it - I'll bet there's already someone preparing the brief and just waiting for Monday.

At which point, someone here will probably post about those commie pinkos at the ACLU. I mean, supporting free speech for everyone - what are they thinking?

So you don't have a problem with the idea of a government agency using your tax dollars to monitor what you say in public, and then calling your boss to complain if you disagreed with them?

I can think of few things more in line with the First Amendment than someone publicly expressing their opinion of an elected official. In fact, that situation is *exactly* what the amendment was designed to protect.

But of course, what should we expect from someone who starts his comment by with name-calling and insults for liberals? Apparently 'do it respectfully' doesn't apply to conservatives?

Focus on marriage to end poverty misguided, Democratic Party leader says

Well, you'd talking Brownback world - it would have to be at conception. Might need to register every time before you have sex, just in case.

Focus on marriage to end poverty misguided, Democratic Party leader says

"The cost of two people living together is rarely if ever greater than double a single persons costs."

That doesn't require marriage. You can accomplish that by cohabitation. Or hell, by getting a roommate. But that doesn't suit the Brownback agenda (possibly because he doesn't look beyond solutions that promote his personal opinions).

So in other words, marriage is irrelevant - it's all about procreation.

Focus on marriage to end poverty misguided, Democratic Party leader says

The fact that A is associated with B does not mean that A causes B. Or to put it for those that are incapable of critical thought - the fact that single women with children are more likely to live in poverty than married women with children does not mean that their marital status *caused* the difference in standards of living.

It might mean nothing more than a middle-class woman is more likely to get married than a poor woman.
