Kansas GOP Insider (wannabe): Brownback scares small children

Brownback scares small children

Gov. Sam Brownback has asked agencies to trim budget proposals for next year by 10 percent.

In a letter to state agencies, he said the trim budgets are in case of economic problems that are "beyond our control."

I'm not sure what that means, but it from the sound byte from his press secretary, it sounds like the Governor's Office is making plans for some sort of disaster.

Sherriene Jones-Sontag told the Lawrence Journal World, " The governor has asked state agencies to prepare contingency budget plans should something happen to the country and world economies that are beyond our control.”

Um. Like what? An earthquake? Fires? A global currency collapse? A war?

The liberals are screaming about cuts to services they say will send granny over a cliff in her wheelchair and lead to starving Kansas children with distended stomachs begging for table scraps in the streets. Every human who has ever worked with a family budget knows that there ARE things that can be cut without too much pain.

In a household, that might mean getting rid of cable. In a state agency, it might mean trimming the number of state provided cell phones; limiting training that requires travel. No one is going to starve with 10 percent in cuts. The school buildings are still going to have electricity.

While these fools are caterwauling about cuts that will likely never occur, they should be asking themselves exactly what Brownback is worried about. Does he know something we don't?

Because I'm reading between the lines and deciding it's high time I stock up on ammunition, bottled water, dried goods and cans.
