    Kansas, as big as you think.

    Of course many cars sported, Kansas, as bigoted as you think.

    There still is the open, honest mid-westerner.  They have been fooled long enough.

    Now they have the 2nd (safety net for sloppy) Amendment, and can't be infringed to actually treat their gun like a gun and not a video game controller.

      Years ago I lived right on the border between Kansas and Missouri.  I had a very close friend who was gay.  

      He moved to Wichita and we lost touch.  Then, just last week, I hunted for him on Facebook - - and found him.  I asked him to be friends before I scrolled on down his page and got the shock of my life.

      There, for all to see, were his "likes":
      FOX and Friends
      FOX News
      and, for some unfathomable reason, Senator Marco Rubio.  
      Now I'm the one living in Florida these days, fergoshsakes!  And I don't like Rubio.  So how come a gay guy in Kansas includes him in his "likes" column?

      I haven't asked my friend that question.  I'm not sure I would understand the answer if I did - - - - - -

        in Lawrence. Only one person was what you would call the Kansas Tea. I did 3 shifts during crowded festivals. I saw a lot of people.

        Now they have the 2nd (safety net for sloppy) Amendment, and can't be infringed to actually treat their gun like a gun and not a video game controller.
