  1. In today’s local newspaper —

    Farmer, Roxann E. (Higgins), 63, local author, loving mother and grandmother, passed away Jan. 17, 2015, after a brief but brave battle with cancer. She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Lela Marie. She is survived by her daughters, Sabrina (Aaron) Hall, Lindsay Unrein, Chelsea (Daniel) Smith and Mallory Farmer; as well as her 5 grandchildren, Scarlett, Alexandria, Gavin, Jaxon and Payton. Celebration of her life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7, at Orchard Park Recreation Center. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established at Home Bank and Trust, 10421 W. Central, Wichita, KS 67212.

Since they have bought government, they don’t actually want to get rid of it. It’s what keeps them in power and what keeps public money flowing straight to their pockets. The idea of government is not the problem; it’s who the government is serving.

    (from the link): It’s fascinating to me: Right-wingers love their Mama Grizzlies, tough gals like Palin and Sen. Joni Ernst to name two, as long as they stay in line. But when they stray from wingnut orthodoxy, they can expect the same abuse female Democrats get. I’ve been looking around to see if any conservative women have stood up for Ellmers, in the face of RedState’s ugly assault, but I haven’t found any.
