Hey everyone. Good to see everyone else is pissed about Kobach’s shenanigans too! I must say, I am outraged, appalled, and totally pissed off. I love the humorous take you all are putting on this, but it just pisses me off to no end! A disclaimer? Two ballots? Changing the date of the election? Can you imagine if a Democrat SOS proposed even ONE of those things? I can’t believe even republicans can stomach this shit!
glenn

7 days ago
AD Did you read about how mister “No Shenanigans” is pulling every trick in the book, and some that are not….to mess up the elections. I spoke with a GOP friend in KS today and he says “embarrasing” is the only word to describe it all.

Hi glenn!
adlib 7 days ago
i thought some judge settled it
Harleigh

Murph–but…will your GOP friend still vote republican? Of course he will.
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Yes, just saw a great segment on Rachel Maddow, she read the disclaimer he is going to send to soldiers overseas…”You may choose to wait for another ballot…we’ll count your replacement ballot if you already voted on the first ballot you received.” Holy shit! He’s gone insane!
adlib 7 days ago
Harleigh…the KANSAS SUPREME COURT did…unanimously…..GOP and Dem appointees alike.
murphthesurf3

Glenn…this lady, maybe not…she is so pissed at women’t health votes in the KS legislature that she is ready to go rouge.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Harleigh – Yes, as Murph said, it was decided but Kobach is an extremist ideologue and what he is doing now, in trying to sabotage the election, if you ask me, is impeachable.
adlib 7 days ago
Ad- it is a form of voter supression…How much do you want to bet that the money boys are yanking his chain…think Koch’s.
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Murph–I hope that you can convince her, in your inimitable way, to go rogue! And, while you’re at it, could you convince a few more? sunglasses
glenn

He said in his disclaimer that he is seeking to have the federal election day changed…even though there’s no reason for it! And he claims it will be a week later!

Ad…Koch Industries = WIchita KS….imagine if Brownback loses! Imagine if the Senate Seat changes hands?
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Ad–that was also my next thought. Where are the calls for Kobach’s impeachment? Talk about abusing your office!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – It’s actually good news. Kobach is showing his true colors and the rest of the Repub establishment is cringing. He is trying to destroy the election so that it won’t be valid. AND…he’s running for re-election. He’s just handed all the ammunition to the Dems that they could use.
adlib 7 days ago
Murph, yes you. I always remember your encounter with the grocer and the Obamacare lies. That you were so calm, and so convincing in your arguments to that man.

what is the matter with KS?

Hey slm! Glad you’re getting The Planet’s emails now!
adlib 7 days ago
slm – I kind of think KS may prove in Nov that there’s nothing wrong with them, they may just kick the crazies out of office.
adlib 7 days ago
Hey there slm
murphthesurf3

7 days ago
Ad–the rest of the republican should not only be cringing, they should be doing something about it. They should be calling for Kobach’s impeachment. As Harleigh says, one dipstick in KS cannot change a national election date. Where are the republicans crying about this? All that republicans are crying about is that they’re not first on the ballot in Wisconsin! What a bunch of sore losers repubs are! If we lose, then we’re going to change the rules! Assholes!

sillylittleme

adlib 7 days ago
Murph–I’m sure he does, but at least he now has facts. Not that facts ever changed any republican’s mind, but he can’t say he doesn’t know.
glenn

7 days ago
Glenn….oh, but he can say he does not know and he can pretend that what is not, is so. So many of them do…

Kansas Independent Orman….Princton Grad….sometimes GOP…sometimes Dem. In 1992, Orman founded Environmental Light Concepts, which designs and installs energy-efficient lighting systems for commercial and industrial companies. He sold a majority of the company to Kansas City Power and Light in 1996. In 2004, Orman co-founded private equity firm Denali Partners LLC which specializes in funds for small, startups focused on the alternative energy market.

Harleigh, and in GA too. BTW, our “esteemed” SOS, who has issued subpoenas against the New Georgia Project, for reasons no one seems to know, has admitted, that out of the 85,000 voter registrations forms submitted to him, he has only found 17 “fraudulent” ones. He has also admitted that he cannot find no wrongdoing on the part of the New Georgia Project, and that the NGP has cooperated fully with his “investigation”.

His memory is not what it used to be. But then at 92, no surprise there. But for a little while I was The Enemy trying to kidnap him and “put him in the hospital.” Little does he know how much sicker you have to be to get one of those coveted hospital beds!

Ad–I watched Jon Stewart’s take on Joe Biden last night. One of the clips Stewart showed was Biden saying it was never right to hit a woman. It was a powerful clip. When Joe is on, he’s on. But, when he gets off, he really gets off! BTW, on a personal level, my granddaughter and I have been having conversations about hitting. Two of the neighborhood children she hangs with are brother and sister. The sister is younger, and is constantly hitting her older brother when she doesn’t get her way. My granddaughter, in her 11-year-old wisdom, keeps telling the sister, “If you keep hitting him, one of these days, he is going to hit you back.” Again, in her 11-year-old wisdom, she says, that the sister “deserves” to be hit. We have had long conversations about this, and I am putting the idea into her head that it is never a good idea to hit anyone; that no one “deserves” to be hit. I have told her to tell the sister to STOP hitting her brother, period. My granddaughter is one of those children who has to “process” information; so I believe that it won’t be too long until she has “processed” this info, and takes it to heart.

Here’s an enlightening comparison when it comes to propagandizing. HP had a headline today that was something like, “25% of Americans support Secession!”. Meanwhile, the NFL machine pumps out today that a poll showed 86% of NFL fans are unaffected in their love of the NFL even after all that’s happened. Hmm…so if I wanted to promote the opposite, wouldn’t I say that 75% of Americans oppose secession and 14% of NFL are turned off of football because of what’s happened?

glenn – The problem is that when children aren’t taught self-restraint, that can be reflected in many destructive ways as they grow up. The least bad thing that can happen is the boy hitting her back, imagine the life ahead if she is openly hostile to all around her. Then again, she could get elected as a Republican.

It is a good idea to secede the entire Texassissippianahomasas region for several reasons; 1. The recalculated average IQ of the remainder of the nation would go up at least 30 points. 2. The recalculated average median income would go up over $10,000. 3. The average educational level would go from 6th grade dropout to college level. 4. We would save hundreds of billions in waste on their education, welfare and infrastructure. 5. Their new kuntry could be called Teabaggertopia, or Neojebusland or Concrapia maybe. The Texassissippianahomasas region has already been rejected by Mexico saying that accepting all those teabaggers in that region would greatly reduce their national standards.

Murph–You’re right; hitting conversations are difficult. I remember when I was teaching, I had many a father who told me that he told his child, mostly boys, to hit back if anyone hit him. I informed the fathers that they can tell their children that, but that they had to be aware that if their child hit another child, they would be suspended. Didn’t stop the fathers; but I wanted them to know there were consequences for this behavior. And, after my conversations with my granddaughter, I realized that these fathers were acting just like 11-year-olds!

Glenn- I student I taught in HS many moons back was being jerked about by a group of bullies. When he wouldn’t respond as they wanted him to (i.e. he refused to kowtow to them) they threatened to beat him up. I was on a stairway and heading for the crowd….the young man in question…looked up at them and said- “Look, my dad is an attorney. If you hit me, I will file charges. My dads law firm will sue your fathers and they will probably beat the shit out of you.” The bully boys were so confused by this they just kind of wandered off. I got to the bottom of the stairs, congratulated him on quick thinking and said: “I did not know your Dad was an attorney.” He smiled and said: “He’s not. A car salesman. BS artist. Like me.”

ALL…I have a Scottish Story to share: One of the stories not reported in the USA’s miserable coverage of the plebiscite is this little gem shown on Al Jazeera America, my new favorite news source. Prince Harry made headlines in the UK when at a sporting event he reminesced about his fond memories of his home near Aberdeen Scotland, Balmoral and that is was his and Williams “home.” He said that he hoped he would not need a visa to go there soon. He laughed and then as he walked away said that he grew up on Scottish values and love of the highlands. For that reason, he said, no matter what, he still planned on wearing a kilt rather regularly. OMG! If you know Harry’s face…he is red headed with strong features and a big build. Very Scottish. Buckingham Palace had no comment.

I wouldn’t have worried about those wanting to secede here if Scotland had done so. Our Constitution doesn’t allow states to secede, end of story (remember the Civil War)?

Back now. My thoughts on Scotland are that they were in a win-win situation. they knew they were on the moral high ground. No one took much notice until the polls suddenly showed the Tories that the Scots were serious, so there was a huge flipflop to grant them lots more autonomy, rather like the US States, to run their own domestic affairs. That was enough for the Scots to keep within the UK. there is now a movement to give ENLAND the same sort of autonomy that N.I, Wales and Scotland now enjoy, with its own Parliament, and Westminster becoming more of a Federal Parliament than before. the whole gist of all of this is that the Scots are fed up with the elitist Tories.

Yes, a minority who are wealthy are very pleased with them but as the polls reflect, the majority which has been hammered is very motivated to take them out of office.

PPO – This is Assad’s strategy to remain in power, allowing ISIS to grow and become a greater threat…that threatens the US…then while he has his foe the US fight his foe ISIS, he can focus on crushing the Syrian rebels and he’ll be the only one left standing in Syria.

Murph – Yes, the gerrymandering thing is an obstacle but if the percentage against the Tories remains as high as it is, it trumps the gerrymandering. And GOTV is critical but studies show that it is the angry people who are most likely to turn out, not the satisfied.

You’re right, Murph, sorry. I remember that he is, or was, pro christian in Syria, what with all the many Christian Orthodox groups there. My mistake. And Ad, you got it, that will be his strategy, but why then have his Air defences targeting US Aircraft?

Murph – The only way the Tories got a majority was to negotiate a deal with the LDs. And that alliance is frayed plus the LDs are losing their constituency so even if they did get in bed with the Tories again, it may not be enough.

I once had a discussion about Life of Brian and an apparently very straight, rather stolid looking minister in the group said nothing for the first few minutes and then said this: “I regard the film as a first class primer in scriptural critical analysis.” And then the fight really started.

yes, ad, very sad and cynically greedy. Loved the cartoons as well. BTW, our class of cat, the Condor, usually named their boats after cartoon charcters, such as the Wacky Racers, so we had Muttley, Dick Dastardly, etc. Fun days!
