Intellectual Diversity

 

Bite Me  The budget process has dredged up a lot of muck during the past few months. Of special interest to the Blue Dog has been the demonization and punishment meted out by both parties against those who don’t toe the party line. The latest incident involved the Republicans blackballing six legislators who voted for the budget. Last year, we saw Democrat Nicole Parra sent to the woodshed with an office across the street from the Capitol for holding out on a vote. 

Enough of this bullying. The Reps like to jaw about the virtues of freedom while the Dems trumpet the importance of cultural diversity. This is all well and good. But who is protecting intellectual diversity and the integrity of free thinkers?
