If we fight for this office, it may not be spared from its closure at the current location... but most assuredly we can obtain more than a mere small "presence" of what remains as an existing office.

I wonder what it feels like to have a place for Brownback's hand for where his man parts are supposed to be...

Who's next? This is the classic tale told about Germany at the start of WWII. They came to take the Jews but since I wasn't a Jew I did nothing to stop them, etc. I think Brownback is starting to take the "Jews." this case the handicapped and poor. Look around.....will you be next?

Interesting that Brownback is from Western Kansas and no offices were closed out there. Interesting that Brownback went to K-State and was the class president. Could that be part of the reason he is targeting Lawrence? Is he also trying to weaken the democratic party? Is this a way of pushing his religious agenda? Is this a way to gain more control over abortion services? Since evangelicals are often reported for sexual abuse, is this a way to protect them from being prosecuted? Is it all of the above? Yes.
