Today’s topic is a collection of small items that have appeared in the news. Yesterday, everyone was talking about the shootings in Overland Park, KS outside the Jewish Community Center and a Jewish Retirement Home. A lot of information was discussed by the networks and local media outlets. As the day grew on, it was revealed that NONE of the victims were Jewish.
The grandfather and grandson were there for an audition for a local talent show. The Center was being used for the auditions. The show was a regional affair unrelated to the Center. The woman was at the retirement home to visit a relative. She was a Christian. In fact, late yesterday, it was announced that all three were Christians and committed church-goers. Whatever motive the shooter had, he didn’t attack anyone connected with the Jewish Community in the Kansas City area, just innocent people at the wrong place at the wrong time.

‘RIGHT-TO-WORK’ FIGHT — Following last week’s vote against “right-to-work” and her vocal positioning with Democrats and Labor against the issue, some in the House Republican Caucus have began a quiet campaign to pull Rep. Anne Zerr, R-St. Charles, from her chairmanship of the House Economic Development Committee. Several caucus members have taken that concern to House Speaker Tim Jones, but it is unlikely the speaker’s office will ultimately pull the trigger. On several other priorities (tax credits, for example) Zerr has been a loyal supporter. And it isn’t like Zerr has been necessarily standing in the way: Instead of the “right-to-work” bill going through Zerr’s committee, it went through Rep. Bill Lant’s special committee on the workforce. — PoliticMO Newsletter, April 15, 2014.
There are a few others in the Legislature who should have their leadership and Committee assignments removed. The time for fence-sitting is over. You are either a conservative or you aren’t. Legislators no longer have the option to pick and choose.
