Ten Acres & A Yard Tractor
North Jefferson County, Kansas
The Great War Hawk Recession sure did a number on many Kansans, igniting a plutocrat funded Tea Party movement that imploded when the numbers came in after the Cornfield Revolution was declared victorious from Topeka.
This "debate" is "moderated" by "experts" schooled in the sale of oil based farm chemicals and livestock feedlot maintenance as seen in our ditches, creeks, rivers and lakes.
It is a fact the "moderators" can expertly snore out on static-filled AM radio airwaves a list of numbers used to speculate on the price of pork bellies. A radio station that was until Kansan's memory blacked-out, more than a decade ago, owned by the governor's in-laws.
Why compete with the noise of the soon-to-be slaughtered critters at the state fair? Better to hold such contests far from Hutchinson's pig sty, stables and chicken pits.
Convene debates in Topeka's garishly gilded legislative chambers, witness our candidate representatives in tumultuous contest, hear the braying jackasses and trumpeting elephants in every corner of Kansas free of charge.
Maybe we should roll-over, let the Plutocrats have their way with us and not have any "debate."
Sodomy in politics has never been a crime.
Seems like an Eternity, Kansas dominated by a puny cowardly fever-headed band of Republicans. The state was founded by fleeing immigrant refugees, land thieves, and a few holier-than-thou types who had a notion that a lifetime of hard work for stingy paymasters was better for the poor folk than beastly slavery.
Since our current crop of elected leaders think firing public school teachers is all the rage, let the librarians "moderate" the statehouse debates; have the unemployed art, music and theater teachers draw up the questions.
Hell, broadcast the debates over the same taxpayer funded internet connections used when the pole-cat legislature is in session grinding out laws like sausage.
Get the money out, and bring some intelligent structure into our elections. Or shut-up, stop all talk of "debate" and let the Plutocrats run the whole damn state. They seem to be already, tax free.
