It’s odd, that difference between the golden towers nd the trenches. It seems to give one a perspective gained in no other way than to make the journey:

As a U.S. senator, Sam Brownback was second to none in advocating for those suffering because of war, persecution and oppression, often by citing the biblical admonition “that true religion is taking care of widows and orphans and the foreigner amongst you.”

That makes him the last governor you’d expect to fearmonger about refugees, as he did again last week by pulling Kansas out of the federal government’s refugee resettlement program.

Citing his concerns for Kansans’ safety, the governor said the feds’ failure “to provide adequate assurances regarding refugees it is settling in Kansas” left him no choice.

The good governor has been fighting the influx of Mexican workers and voting and crime for some few years now. He is finding that the problems are growing as workers inflow to the packing houses and spill outward to the, umm, more civilized areas of the state.

And, to say the obvious, apply for government assistance and the government is severely strapped to fund the wages of the elected, let along the free loaders.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
