I have moaned and groaned about our horrible newspaper
that should be titled The Daily Republican. It is so biased
and so slanted. It has told outright lies about expanded medicaid and the Affordable Health Care Act.
The Observer tells the truth even when it reflects badly on
Democrats and it exposes many of the things that this Republican dominated state government is trying to do. For
instance, they want judges elected by the people which is
a profound mistake and will result in a politically controlled judiciary. It would be a kangaroo court all over
I can just imagine what Steve would have to say about this.
I miss his blogs. I wonder where he has gone.
Our merit system for state employees is set aside every time
someone with political influence wants to put an employee
in the Department of Corrections or other state entities. I
am using the D.O.T. as an example and since my son once
worked there, I know it was run by a state senator who is
mercifully dead now. He put underqualified political cronies in there all the time. My SIL encountered the same
thing in the Health Department.
