Stalinist purging is going on in this country.
Since this is a state-sanctioned licensing board, it sounds like grounds for a winning lawsuit to me because the board is effectively punishing him with a denial of license for being Conservative.
The TV Station did say they would be pursuing answers to your question. I can see their point of view, if a current government panel can do this because of politics a different one can do the same thing to the other side.
It would be fun to “investigate” the medical records of the Kansas doctors who sit on that board and judge others. They might wind up with a whole new board.
A guilty finding on a court-martial is considered a federal crime finding, and it does follow you for life.
I disagree with the board's decision, as failing to obey an order in the military doesn't really have a civilian equivalent, but it's what this board is using as their “reason”.
Funny thing, though. Their questions for him were all about Obama’s long-form forgery oops- birth certificate, and whether he considers that Obama has proven his eligibility.
Since believing Obama is eligible is an act of blind faith against the available evidence, I’d say this is a religious litmus test...
Kansas is the same state that gave us the current Wicked Witch of the East, Kathleen Sebelius.
The United States Constitution means less and less every day; it’s gotten to the point that those who defend its strictures are declared pariahs or simply assumed to be insane.
Actually, I am glad to see this. If the license is political it is meaningless.
