Kansas bill would protect public comments from civil lawsuits

Yes Greg but perhaps even sadder is there are people who still trust the government.

Kansas bill would protect public comments from civil lawsuits

True, but freedom of speech wasn't in the original Constitution either, but added with the bill of rights. Later amendments were necessary to provide equal protection under the law.

I will study the bill more closely because you raise an interesting point and I don't trust the government.

We have lots of laws that protect our Constitutional rights. How is this different?

For example, under the Constitution all men and women are equal but look at all the laws protect that right.

Kobach pushing bills to limit ballot withdrawals and to allow straight-party voting

The same can be said of the democrTic party. There are those that vote the Democratic Party ticket.

ACLU asks Lawrence schools to suspend mentoring program

Just have half of the boys self identify as female - problem solved.

With all the issues facing us today it seems a waste of resources for the ACLU to take this on. The end result will be boys who need mentoring not getting it and most likely not reaching their full potential as they enter adulthood.

Well Dorothy as usual you say someone untrue but don't bother to admit it or back it up.

Kobach pushing bills to limit ballot withdrawals and to allow straight-party voting

How do you figure I want to take away Taylor's freedom to change his mind? I specifically said a person should be able to withdraw in my post above.

Why do you make stuff up? Can't we have an honest discussion?

I can easily see how one would disagree with Kobach's policies, but I'm not seeing any that take away our freedom of choice.

What policy or proposal do you view as taking away our freedom of choice.

If anything, what happened in the last election - pressuring Taylor to withdraw removed the candidate for which the people voted and this limiting freedom of choice.

Kobach pushing bills to limit ballot withdrawals and to allow straight-party voting

People should have to think about each candidate for whom they vote, not select all on party affiliation.

Instead of forcing someone to remain on the ballot they should be allowed to withdraw, but no replacement should be allowed. That will prevent manipulating the ballot and allowing someone who didn't win the primary election to run.
