Kansas's Self-Destruct Button: A Bill to Outlaw Sustainability


It seems like every time the Sunflower State pops up in my news feed, it’s for something like this: House Bill No. 2366, a proposed law that would make it illegal to use “public funds to promote or implement sustainable development.”

<snip>

Now the state’s “Committee on Energy and Environment” is proposing a law that would prohibit spending on anything that won’t set Kansas on a course to self-destruction. House Bill No. 2366 would ban all state and municipal funds for anything related to “sustainable development,” which it defines as: “development in which resource use aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come."

Unbelievable, but too much intake of the anti-B vitamin in corn causes lower mental development. That is about the only explanation I come up with. It would be nice if they just outlawed the OXYMORON "sustainable development", that would make some sense.
When the Zombie Apocalypse hits Kansas they will starve. That is good. :razz: =P~ :shock: :crazy: :lol: :eh: #-o :-& =; :mrgreen:
Brain? Brain? Where is brains? =P~ =P~ :lolno: :problem:

From 'Spock's brain"--generally considered by fans as the worst episode from the original series.

Not quite, corn eater. Zombies are supposed to eat brains and the shrunken peanuts of corn eaters aren't enough for them.
As a Star Trek fan, the quote in that very good episode is "Brain? Brain? What is brain?"
Of course, all that corn caused the mistake in perception of what I wrote.

The cure from McCoy is B100 for 2 weeks, then LSD for 3 days. :mrgreen: O:) :-
Why, you'll be as good as new!

As stated, star trek fans voted said episode as the worst and have done so for years.

I reckon if anyone should know, it's them. 8)
