Yesterday over two thousand people participated in Kansas City’s March for Science and rally at Washington Square Park.

From the march into the park:

Think while it is still legal.

#resist.

Love your mother.

Science not silence.

Expect defiance.

Science, because you can’t just make shit up.

There is no Planet B.

Knowledge is power.

Science.

Y’all need science.

If you’re not part of the solution…

In the park:

Government science denial is fascism.

Yesterday over two thousand people participated in Kansas City’s March for Science and rally at Washington Square Park. One local broadcast outlet estimated the crowd at three thousand.

At the rally in the park:

Don’t hate, educate…

I love evidence.

Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone…

Stand up for Science.

We love Science.

Science is Truth.

Science!

There were quite of few of these knit caps:

Brains.

Resist the Stone Age.

Stay positive.

Old school.

Listening.

Yesterday over two thousand people participated in Kansas City’s March for Science and rally at Washington Square Park.

Generations:

Nevertheless, she persisted.

Marching down Grand toward Washington Square Park, staying on the sidewalk to avoid citation/arrest:

Marching.

It is horrifying…

Science and truth matter.

Imaginary.

Heretic.

We must seek truth.

Science matters.

Defunding progress.

Girls just want to have fun(ding)…

There’s no crying in Science.

…without science.

Expertise matters.

You’d think.

Carl Sagan is pissed.

Among many others.

Kansas City’s March for Science started before 9:00 a.m. as people gathered at 27th and Grand for the 9:30 march past Crown Center to Washington Square Park.

If I die, I’m taking you with me.

In science we trust.

Donald Trump isn’t a popular figure:

Trumpcare is an oxymoron, Trump is just a moron.

I’m with her.

Keep your theology out of biology.

Make America smart again.

The marchers streamed into the park.

Science is the antidote to superstition.

Don’t tread on me.

The crowd in the park, easily numbering over two thousand, listened to a number of speakers.

Science trumps silence.

Insufficient facts always invite danger, captain.

Is it worth it?

May the facts be with you.

Give a schist.

I’m with her.

Science benefits everyone.

Trump is hazardous to your health.

It’s the truth.

Some of the marchers clung to the illusion that science is non-partisan. Not when the party in power is militantly anti-science.

One speaker praised Roy Blunt (r) for being pro-science. Maybe on K Street? I couldn’t tell if the crowd’s silent reaction to the statement was because they didn’t hear it, chose to ignore it, or were incredulous.

One of the speakers asserted they were a moderate republican. There are no moderate republicans. They’re either the radical right or they’re enablers of the same. Own it.

Right. Josh Hawley’s (r) campaign raised $3,831.76 in the first quarter of this year. But it does have $1,068,053.22 in the bank. At the current burn rate the balance will be zero by the middle of next year.

Ann Wagner’s Missouri values

Tags

, , , , ,

Word is that U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner (R-2) may be planning to challenge Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill in next year’s midterm election. She’s also taking lots of heat for refusing to hold real, in-person town halls – and, no, hyper-managed tele-town halls don’t count. This fact explains her defensive response to Senator McCaskill’s recent jibe indirectly referencing Wagner’s now-notorious fear of being confronted by less than tame constituents in an environment that she cannot control. McCaskill – who spent the recent congressional recess on a listening tour of the state has plenty of standing on this issue. She’s held numerous Town Halls and listening sessions, even during the most virulent Tea Party period, which means that she’s earned the right to assert that folks who haven’t got what it takes stand up before angry constituents in an open forum and take responsibility for their actions aren’t fit to hold office.

The nettled Wagner promptly attempted to deflect McCaskill’s very palpable hit. She rushed to attack, peevishly declaring that, “I believe what makes you unfit for office is when you don’t represent Missouri values; and Sen. McCaskill’s vote against [Supreme Court] Justice Gorsuch last week told millions of Missourians that she simply doesn’t share their values.”

So what are these “Missouri values” of which Wagner speaks? Based on her performance over just the last few months, I’m willing to make an educated guess that Wagner’s own special Missouri values include the following:

Shafting Missouri consumers, especially senior citizens: Wagner’s untiring efforts over the past few years to repeal the Obama era fiduciary rules and to weaken the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) speak for themselves.

Standing up for her big political donors: See the above point and then consider the piles of dollars that Wagner has raked in from the likes of Edward Jones and other big hitters in the financial services industry.

Going along to get along, decency be dammed: During the campaign, Wagner made it clear that the stench of Donald Trump made her gag – until she realized that the red-meat folks she had to rely on to get elected thought he smelled like chateaubriand. Now she’s all smiles and compliance.

Talking feminism while shafting women: Wagner makes a big deal about her efforts to fight sexual assault, rape and sex trafficking. But she voted against the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) – because it was too comprehensive. And issued a public statement that made it sound like she hadn’t. Hypocrites, we shall know ye by your words.

And then there’s Wagner’s vote for Neil Gorsuch a corporatist in originalist clothing– who is straight-out bad news for women and a disaster for working and middle class Missourians. If that vote represents Missouri values, it’s only because a lot of poor fools have been sold a bill of goods.

No wonder Country Club Ann is scared to face the rowdy hoi polloi in an unconstrained environment. She clearly knows nothing about our values.

In the Missouri Constitution, Bill of Rights:

Section 6. That no person can be compelled to erect, support or attend any place or system of worship, or to maintain or support any priest, minister, preacher or teacher of any sect, church, creed or denomination of religion; but if any person shall voluntarily make a contract for any such object, he shall be held to the performance of the same.
Source: Const. of 1875, Art. II, § 6.

In the Missouri Constitution, Article, IX, Education:

Section 8. Neither the general assembly, nor any county, city, town, township, school district or other municipal corporation, shall ever make an appropriation or pay from any public fund whatever, anything in aid of any religious creed, church or sectarian purpose, or to help to support or sustain any private or public school, academy, seminary, college, university, or other institution of learning controlled by any religious creed, church or sectarian denomination whatever; nor shall any grant or donation of personal property or real estate ever be made by the state, or any county, city, town, or other municipal corporation, for any religious creed, church, or sectarian purpose whatever.
Source: Const. of 1875, Art. XI, § 11.

There’s now a case, taking issue with Missouri’s establishment clauses, before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler‏ @RepHartzler
A playground open to the community shouldn’t be denied grants for safety features because it’s owned by a church #FairPlay #TrinityLutheran
10:11 AM – 19 Apr 2017

The responses:

Does church pay taxes?

Yea it should that tax free church can afford it.

What if it was the Church of Satan you hypocrite???

Yes it should when our Governor is making big cuts in funding for the disabled and elderly, education and not expanding Medicaid

“Over two-thirds of the applicants were rejected.” Open to the community? No. I don’t know why you support this. Sorry to be so suspicious.

But I’m suspecting that this will have consequences that reach much farther than a playground. Why are you supporting this?

Planned Parenthood is open to the public but you want to deny them government money.

I also wonder if the Christian lobby would sing the same tune today if it were a mosque claiming unequal treatment. Thoughts?

why are you wanting to change the Constitution which requires separation of church and state. it’s worked for 200 years

your tweets do not change the Constitution which requires separation of church and state. it’s work for over 200 years

There’s few things that irk me more than…. using children as political props. Very disgusting.

Why is it open to the community? I assume you mean the whole community, not just the church. If my backyard is open to the whole

neighborhood, do I get government funding? How about if I get religious status? Then do I get government funding? Can of worms, here.

This is just baffling to me. All public services should be secular. I honestly don’t get how religious hospitals are a thing.

Something else is going on here. Maybe she&Blunt are expressing support forGorsuch &whatever decision he makes.But it sure ain’t “the kids”.

Kids shouldn’t have to play on Christian, or Jewish or Muslim playgrounds. They should just be playgrounds.

Separation of church and state is there for a reason. If a religious pre school wants tax paid subsidies then the tax exempt status MUST GO.

Wrong! Unless you give those same grants to Muslims, Satanists, Pagans, etc…

Don’t forget the Pastafarians!

Um, actually it should.

If it’s owned by a church then it shouldn’t get tax dollars. Unless it is open to government oversight and regulation

In Alabama they’re granting churches rights to form their own police forces. Don’t be fooled, she’s using children as a tool for agenda.

That scares the shit out of me. Wish we could just split the country in 2 & let the Christians take over the South & leave us the hell alone

Our fate is that of the south. And they’re being victimized & abused by power hungry extremists using religion as a weapon. The @GOP must go

Well, that’s the beauty of the separation of church and state. Would you be crying this loud for Muslims? Nah, I didn’t think so. Hypocrite

Maybe you should be more worried about the impending GVT shutdown in 10 days….. Just sayin’.
#MO4 #DoYourJob #FairPlay

SEPERATE CHURCH AND STATE ALREADY AND FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION YOU CLAIM TO RESPECT.

That one laid an egg. But Neil Gorsuch, occupying a stolen seat on the court, will probably help change it all.

Well, it’s admirable that there are small dollar contributors, though $125,000.00 of the $133,647.95 total cash raised (monetary receipts) came from two individuals on December 7, 2017.

One of the expenditures:

MISSOURI ETHICS COMMISSION
ITEMIZED EXPENDITURES OVER $100 SUPPLEMENTAL FORM
4/17/2017 ASHCROFT FOR MISSOURI
Capitol Consulting PO Box 931 Jefferson City MO 65102 1/26/2017 Fundraising $49,526.92

[emphasis added]

$49,526.92 for fundraising on January 26, 2017 to raise how much? Alrighty then.
