    oh. Because he's Brownback.

    Think it's just "bread and circuses"? Distract Kansans from the mess he's created?
    Why does the governor of Kansas get to rule by executive order anyway? I thought this was a bad thing.

    The narrative for tyrannical executive powerlust is limited to the opposing party. When it's your own party, it's leadership.

    Kansas governor rescinds order protecting gay state workers

    Kansas governor rescinds order protecting gay state workers


    The Kansas action comes after the Arkansas Senate this week approved legislation to prohibit cities and counties from enacting ordinances against discrimination based on sexual orientation, which is not covered by state law.
    In Indiana, Republican Gov. Mike Pence is backing a measure aimed at protecting people and companies from having to participate in same-sex weddings. A similar proposal failed last year in Kansas, with critics saying it would sanction widespread discrimination.

    You know if I did something hateful and shameful to just one person I would have a lot of trouble sleeping at night. Yet these assholes like Brownback can be hateful and spiteful to a tens of thousands of people in his own state and by all appearances sleep just fine knowing what he did. Brownback evidently had a problem with the notion that the state should not discriminate against gays or lesbians when hiring state employees. If one of my kids grew up to be a man like Brownback I would be ashamed as a parent.

    I would think the marriage license fees would help with his budget.
