Brownback says perception of ALEC influence is 'overblown'

Sorry, Sam, this is one instance when "plausible deniability" just isn't going to work.

Letter: Food stamp funds

Someone said something recently that struck me and stuck with me.<br>
"Charity isn't Justice. People need a living wage, not food banks."

Opinion: Even when the cameras are rolling…

This kind of behavior is endemic across the country.<br>
Right now there is a lawsuit filed against a NM county law enforcement agency for illegal search wherein they took people to a local hospital and forced them to undergo invasive body cavity searches that actually included COLONOSCOPY! (The hospital then added insult to injury and BILLED the man for a procedure he didn't want and for which he repeatedly denied consent..)<br>>
In Houston, a thirteen year old dance phenom from Tulsa went to a dance workshop with her instructor (who is, himself, a well known dancer) and her dance partner. Due to her age, her parents gave a limited power of attorney to her instructor to cover legalities while out of town. They were on their way back to their hotel when their car was surrounded by HPD units, the girl was handcuffed and then turned over to Texas CPS. Why? It had been noted that she was a young white girl and her traveling companions were two black men.<br>>
This is racial profiling, which is blatantly illegal. The two men involved are considering legal action.

Moran: Affordable Care Act beyond repair

Nah, it's been around for awhile, along with "Bat**** Bachmann" and "Sarah Failin'". I have a few more if you're curious.

Moran: Affordable Care Act beyond repair

So the ACA is "beyond repair", huh?<br>
That's interesting, considering that health care costs have pretty much flat lined since 2010 (the year the bill was initially passed).<br> <br>
Jerry Teabilly Moron is making statements worthy of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.

Kansas group, voters sue over registration rules

Oh and by the way there, Kris, banking on the fact that you will prevail in Federal court (because you wrote AZ's law too)? I wouldn't count on it as a done deal. That's just flat out hubris.

So tell me, who didn't see THIS coming?

State senator's comment on animal shelters draws response

They don't care about kids, they don't care about women. What makes you think they would care about mere animals? Heck, how many legislators are ranchers and make their living off of slaughtering animals?

Letter: Political malpractice

If the middle class is hurting (and god knows we are. I'm part of it too.) then consider this.: 80% of this country is now below, at or within 5 percentage points of the poverty level. Yes, I said EIGHTY PERCENT. Within the five years since the 2008 crash, that 80% has received less than 5% of the economic gains. <br>
Y'all need to start reading Robert Reich's blog/Facebook page.
