How Republicans Will Govern – ‘GOP Cuts ‘Civil Rights And Human Rights’ From Senate Subcommittee Name’
Remember….it will be just small things……..
‘Senate Republicans changed the name of the Senate Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights, the Huffington Post reported on Friday’.
‘When Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the new chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced the new chairs for the six Judiciary subcommittees, he referred to the subcommittee as the Subcommittee on the Constitution’.
‘Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) office confirmed to the Huffington Post that Republicans removed “Civil Rights and Human Rights” from the subcommittee name’.

‘Obtaining a concealed-carry permit in Kansas isn’t exactly a difficult task’.
‘A 2006 law made Kansas a “shall-issue” state, meaning that law enforcement does not have discretion to deny permits to people who meet certain qualifications, though people who want to carry concealed firearms also are required to complete a gun-safety class’.
‘A majority of the state’s senators, however, believe that it should be even easier to pack heat if you live in the Sunflower State’.
‘Twenty-six of the state’s 40 senators co-sponsored a bill eliminating the requirements to take the class and to obtain the a permit’.

Kansas…..The new Third World Country in the middle of the United States…..
‘Rather than retreat from the massive tax cuts that are crippling his state’s finances, Gov. Sam Brownback (R) wants to cut classroom funding for Kansas schools by $127 million and push pension fund payments off into the future’.
‘Republicans argue that the budget only actually cuts $22 million from school spending, because they count teacher pension spending increases in the proposal against the other cuts’.
‘But the Kansas City Star notes that almost half of the pension spending increase for teachers is a “make-up payment for this year’s cut” to that same funding’.
‘More broadly, Kansas state workers’ pension funds are also being used to patch Brownback’s fiscal gap’.
‘But the executive director of the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System says Brownback’s proposed tweaks will ultimately cost the state more than 8 times what they save in the short term’.
“People need to have less things in life,” U.S. billionaire Jeff Greene declared after arriving in Davos, Switzerland in a private jet with his family and TWO nannies’.
“America’s lifestyle expectations are far too high and need to be adjusted so we have less things and a smaller, better existence. We need to reinvent our whole system of life.”
‘In other words, you need to have less, so I can have more’.
‘Bloomberg reports Greene made this ridiculous statement during an interview on Thursday, Jan. 22 at the 2015 World Economic Forum, a yearly confab of economists, corporate titans, world leaders, pundits, and the occasional token intellectual’.
