OOopps!! Some UNDERLING made a mistake in SUBSIDY-Sam's office. Sound familiar, anyone?

Notes from BrownKOCHistan:

"But an alert reporter from the Wichita Eagle challenged that claim, leading to an admission from Brownback’s budget director, that, oops, due to a spreadsheet error, the governor was working with incorrect information. Instead of falling, state spending under Brownback was slightly higher than it was when his predecessor, Democrat Mark Parkinson, was governor.

Well, hey, everybody makes mistakes, and the budget office was only off by $2 billion or so. But the corrected numbers certainly change the narrative. The downward spending arc was a mirage."

2. Maybe because of their power they have surrounded themselves with stupid people for so

long that they have forgotten what intelligent people can do????

Think of the implications of this hypothesis to health care.

3. Perhaps...

I also think they have not quite caught up to the 21st century and the technology. I don't think Romney was an exception, I think he was the rule in the GOP.

6. It's actually kind of nice out there here. Sunshine is good if you wear layers. Headed out now

to shovel on the drive-way for a bit, so I can go get groceries.

Later.

8. Brownback is scum of the earth. He bullied a high school girl because she mocked him on Twitter.

9. That's true. I remember that happening. Someone in his office is paid to monitor what is said

about him on Twitter.

One wonders how many different kinds of other responses he could secretly engage in, besides publicly harassing a high school girl, when he decides to punish Twitter or Facebook users for saying stuff about him, or if he didn't approve of someone's position on a social issue or something in the legislature.

It was really startling to see the school's administration reprimand the young lady, because the governor was displeased with her.
