Best Presidental Quote EVER

Better than Nixon saying (as Vice President) "you won't have Dick Nixon around anymore" Of course he lied. Later he said "I am not a crook!" Again, he perjured. 53251

Viewed from Interstate 70, Kansas is the selfie of American Idiocracy

TOPEKA, KANSAS- Who's not in Kansas anymore? Anyone with a lick of sense. I crossed the state recently to find the western half riddled with fracked well heads, billboards condemning abortion, tollbooths on the interstate, police cruisers extorting drivers, and privatized postal services! I told the tollbooth attendant I didn't think much of Kansas, I meant its dumbfuck Kansans.

In Kansas first the religious nuts kill a doctor, then the state government comes along and revokes the medical license of his main associate!

Scott Roeder, 51, the religious crazy who killed Dr. George Tiller   It is clear that the religious Right Wingers have little to no morality at all. Here is a particularly grievous example of that lack of morality from the state of Kansas as the Right Wing religious influenced state government tries to enforce pregnancy on women against their will by now revoking the medical license of murdered Dr Tiller's main associate. Kansas revokes doctor's license in abortion case. 34779

KKKansas Guv. BrownbacKKK tries to make example of student for “disrespectful” tweet.

BrownbacKKK DiKKKtatorship actually censures people for tweeting naughty things about His Royal Highness He has PUBLICLY-funded researchers keep track of any internet postings with his name on them, and actually used his powers as governor to DEMAND Emma Sullivan, 18, write a letter of apology, through another State and Federally Funded agency, the Shawnee Mission School District, of Topeka. Famous for their Brown v Topeka lawsuit over segregation, not quite as infamous but should be for the very reason a White-governed city was founded there, the name "Shawnee Mission" says it all, they were going to LarnThem Thar Injun Savages To Be Polite To White Folk (or simply kill us) And teach us their version of Christianity. Gee, that gives me a warm fuzzy just thinking about it. Funny thing about Brownback, he just tried a presidential toes-in-the-water bid, and on the apparently meaningless to him platform of Smaller Government. Typical RepubliKKKan. Hey, Sam, KKKiss my ass. Now I'M the one disrespecting you, punk And while you're at it, take the name of My God out of your blasphemous mouth.

Cartographic traces of Lake, Colorado

Maybe like me you're wondering how a landmark falls off the face of the earth, in particular Google Earth, assuming as we do that web crowdsourcing is archival, not perishable. A stagecoach watering hole in Kansas Territory, formerly Arapaho, was Hedinger's Lake, between present day Limon and Hugo. Like the history of Colorado's water, Lake became Lake Station, later a railway siding, today a creek. 24189

John Brown, from a grateful people

This weekend marks the 150th anniversary of John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry, an attempt to appropriate from the US armory to defend a slavery free territory. The already notorious anti-slavery evangelist had lost the earlier Free State sanctuaries Palmyra and Osawatomie. On October 16-17, 1859, the band of 22 abolitionists and free men, held off the townsmen and US Marines, until ten were killed and five escaped. The seven survivors were hanged, including Brown, who said at the scaffold: "I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood."   The raid on Harpers Ferry set into motion the fight in earnest to emancipate the southern slaves, ending 305 years of American slavery. Argentina, Ecuador, Chile, Central America, Mexico, Bolivia, Uruguay, Venezuela, and all British, French, Danish, Dutch, and Portuguese colonies, had already abolished slavery between 1811 and 1863. The US was followed by Cuba then Brazil in 1888. 10195
