Programming Note: Radio Free Kansas Weekend Updates 27 - 29, April 2012!

Free Speech Radio News begins the "Friday Free For All" program tonight, 27 April, 2012.  FSRN is having a special fundraiser and beginning all day May 1st live streaming video of demonstrations and activities from various parts of the country.

In local news:

Throughout this week at the Topeka statehouse there have been demonstrations as the legislature re-convenes for the last session.

Wednesday Tim Carpenter, Topeka Capital Journal reported that hundreds of disabled and disadvantaged people many in wheel chairs and life sustaining devices protested against the privatizing of Kansas Medicare.

Gov. Brownback agreed to delay certain parts of it for one year, according to the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) news service which also reported on the protest.   KHI reported what Dear Leader had to say about a federal investigation which may lead to enormous costs in lawsuits from the Department of Justice for alleged civil rights violations of disabled Kansans. 

The more partisan Dodge City Globe quoted Brownback and flunkies blaming former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius administration for the mess.

Thursday LGBT protesters gathered at the statehouse steps against a bill sponsored to protect "religious freedom" for those who wish to discriminate.  What's that all about?
