The latest step in Disaster Capitalism in BrownKochistan

http://www.thekansan.com/article/20130216/NEWS/130219396

If this bill passes, it will essentially de-fund the 10-year transportation plan to help fill the massive budget hole that has been created by Governor Brownback's tax cuts for the wealthy. In other words, it will eliminate a program that will create a confirmed 175,000 middle class jobs over 10 years to pay for a tax cut that MIGHT create 33,000 jobs by 2020. Does this sound like a good idea to you?

1. typical Kansas-conservative logic............

I guess the Repugs are saving their brains for a special occasion, and this ain't it. Sheeesh, how ignorant!

I'm a Kansas voter. Brownback and his cronies are doing their best to devastate this state.

4. I get bent out of shape about things like this, but yet Kansas voters keep

voting these asses into office. They had to know what they are about. And Brownback was a senator for quite awhile. They had to know what they were getting as a governor.

I get really pissed some days and say fuck, this is apparently what the voters what ... not all of them, but enough of them. Each day is a WTF in Kansas anymore. Kansas really was not that bad of a place, but now it's being destroyed. And the voters kicked out many of the moderate republicans. I guess enough just are in love with teabagger types.

It's not only disaster capitalism, but also disaster for social type things too. As many have said, the goal of TPTB is to have barefoot women running around popping babies in the street ... and most Kansans living in some type of theocratic dystopia. And this is what Kansas TPTB and the Koch Brothers want all across the US. Frankly, they are all more of a threat than terrorism IMO. And lot of money is being poured into this agenda.

6. Hello! I think there's a strong streak of contrarian in Kansas, to wit . . .

"I WILL cut my nose off to spite your face, damn you!!"

Sheer cussed negativity + thinking that if we make a commitment to economic and social justice, "The poor will get my job and I'll be out on the street" . . . which doesn't account for the fact that what we have going on here is: you'll keep your job, maybe, butyou will NEVER see your wages/salary go up and you will forever see groceries and medical costs go up.
