We have met the enemy and he is us.

Sometimes it is easier to let others do the talking for a while.

"The House Republican aggressive effort to "defund" Planned Parenthood is probably the unkindest cut, showing hostility when it comes to controlling women's choices. Very few of the 87 newcomers have ever been pregnant. This has nothing to do with economics and everything to do with a pointed political agenda. These guys are taking women prisoners first." Jamie Stiehm

"Take cover, Missouri workers, taxpayers and voters. Your state legislature has an agenda, and lawmakers are not about to let you stand in their way. The agenda is called 'fix the six.' (And it) would surely make Missouri a meaner place to live and work. Shame on those lawmakers who have accepted a special interest agenda so unquestionably." firedupmissouri.com

Same people who exhort the fact that the anti-Obama heathcare bill was voted on and passed with a 70% majority (actually 17% of registered voters). A tip of the bus driver's hat to Len Eagleburger.

Remember this? I do. Yep, Koch brothers here in #SGF last fall.

And civility in government? How about in Springfield? Remember this? How about this? I do.

"I am so tired of beating my head against the stone walls of unreasonable and outrageous legislation. I am putting down my keyboard and withdrawing from the fray for a short time.

Time enough to regroup, recharge and resharpen. I shall return." Bill Fikes.
