Furlough notice from the State of Kansas

As you may be aware, if the Legislature does not pass a budget by 11:59 p.m. on June 6, 2015, the State of Kansas will not be authorized to disburse funds for Fiscal Year 2016. Without this authorization to disburse funds, the state will be forced to implement furloughs starting at 12:01 a.m. on June 7, 2015. The issue is not whether the state has the resources necessary to fund payroll, but that there is no authority to distribute those funds without a budget.

So, the Republican controlled legislature so far has failed to do its job. Now what? More to come.

Minnesota is doing the opposite

This will be an interesting comparison over the next few years. http://www.startribune.com/politics/statelocal/290003591.html

"weighs in?"

I was on Fox News today, talking about migraine.
As you can see, I'm a plus sized person. Is it ok that they titled the video "Dr. Berman weighs in.." What do you folks think?

I think it's time to take them seriously

and have charity workers stand outside walmart to collect toys, canned items, etc. for walmart associates. Let the customers experience that before coming into the store.
