They look to me like solutions looking for problems; similar to our new Kansas Voter I-D law.
This week our Kansas Legislature lurched into overtime at $35,000 a day because the conservative and moderate Republicans could not agree on several important issues. Last week they spent valuable time debating issues that have little or no impact on the citizens of this state. The Senate debated and passed legislation to purge Kansas courts of Shariah or other foreign legal codes. And the House debated and passed a resolution condemning a 20-year-old non-binding United Nations document.
Shariah is the moral code and religious law of Islam. I’ve never even considered how many Kansas judges and attorneys rely on Shariah to decide legal matters. I’ll bet you 10 Kansas Lottery tickets that it’s somewhere between none and zero.
And a 20-year-old non-binding U-N document, while Kansas school districts wait to see how much state revenue they can expect next year? Really?
Is this why we elected you people?
Our thought for today is from Anatole France:
“If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.”
