Now what’s the matter with Kansas?
In the last 30 days, legislators in Kansas have proposed bills to deny services to people they believe are gay or lesbian and sanction spanking of children to the point of bruising – and that’s on top of a lengthy list of restrictions on reproductive rights enacted with Republican Gov. Sam Brownback at the helm.
From immigration to civil rights, it has seemed as though Arizona, North Carolina, or Texas was perhaps ground zero in the current culture wars. But the Sunflower State has worked hard this week to wrest that mantle for itself.
Kansas wasn’t always this way.
The state has a strong progressive streak in its history. This is where Americans took a stand against slavery during the Civil War and it is where Topeka parents in 1951 filed suit against the city’s board of education. That action led to one of the most historic Supreme Court Cases: Brown v. Board of Education, which ended school segregation.

The place Dorothy thought she wasn’t,,but wanted to get back too….
Dorothy: Oh, but anyway, Toto, we’re home (Kansas). Home! And this is my room, and you’re all here. And I’m not gonna leave here ever, ever again, because I love you all, and – oh, Auntie Em – there’s no place like home!
And I lived in Kansas for many years, did you read the book by Thomas Frank ?
A great read !
A Free and Open Internet: The Latest from the Frontlines
Media reform advocates are concerned that FCC proposed reforms don’t go far enough.
BillMoyers.com / By Michael Winship
Wednesday’s announcement by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler that the FCC would write new rules to insure open access to the Internet — otherwise known as Net neutrality — generally was seen by consumers as a step in the right direction. But media reform advocates were concerned that it didn’t go far enough.
According to The Washington Post, the FCC may “investigate state-level laws banning the rollout of city-built broadband networks. Many cities, such as Longmont, Colo., and Chattanooga, Tenn., have tried to construct their versions of Google Fiber and to run them like public utilities — much to the frustration of incumbent cable companies and other large Internet providers that view the upstarts as potential competitors.”
Author and communications lawyer Susan Crawford, who appeared as a guest on Moyers & Company a year ago, approves of Wheeler’s move. Writing in the Financial Times, she notes, “He is rightly seeking to replicate the efforts of many small communities across America to create their own wholesale fiber infrastructure. A similar approach has proved successful in Stockholm and Seoul. This would loosen the grip of the cable monopolies on America’s future.”

Wheeler’s statement was accompanied by an FCC fact sheet well worth reading on how Internet growth and investment have “flourished” under the rules of net neutrality.

Interesting, the last 2 paragraphs are very telling of the times we live in and the effects of a well funded minority opposition.
It’s a shame we are on the precipice of global catastrophe and we STILL can’t see it! There are none so blind….
