We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Nickolas Calls For Judicial Oversight... of a sort...
Senate President and corrupt political boss David Williams suffered stinging defeats in the senate this week aft SB1, his medical malpractice bill was voted down. The other came at the defeat of SB236, a bill attempting to limit the judicial branch's power regarding things like the ten commandments.
The medical malpractice bill got beaten yet again. Williams assuredly will file the bill again for the next session. He's showing his true colors by trying to strip away one of the last rights people have and that's the right sue doctors for screwing up.
The bigger case was SB236:
SB 236 (BR 1749) - C. Borders, E. Tori, E. Harris, V. McGaha, R. Roeding, D. Seum, G. Tapp, D. Thayer, J. Westwood
Fortunately, he couldn't get enough votes to get either moved to the ballot. My God, we need to work on getting WIlliams out of office. Mark Nickolas is absolutely right. He's Kentucky's version of Tom Delay. A nod to Democratic floor leader Ed Worley of Richmond for standing in Williams way. This would've been a travesty had either bill made it through.
