On a sad front, once again I’m embarrassed by a female Kansan. Hopefully she’s an import and not native.
Emma Sullivan, 18, of the Kansas City suburb of Fairway, while Governor Brownback was welcoming her and a host of other children, to our state capital, Topeka, Kansas, she tweeted “Just made mean comments at gov. brownback and told him he sucked, in person (hash)heblowsalot.” She actually made no such comment and said she was “just joking with friends. Apparently, she thinks it’s funny to lie to her friends about her showing ingratitude and being disrespectful.
Sullivan received a scolding at school and was ordered to send Brownback an apology letter. However, her mother has intervened and is standing by the child’s right to be be vapid and have questionable mores. So, I guess I was wrong, there’s two home girls that have embarrassed the state of Kansas, the child and her idiocy, and the mother ….. having questionable parenting skills.
Julie Sullivan [the mother] said, “If she wants to tweet her opinion about Gov. Brownback, I say for her to go for it and I stand totally behind her”. Julie, no one is challenging her rights to tweet opinions about anything. People are questioning her truthfulness and appropriateness of doing so in the setting she was in.
“I would do it again,” she [Emma Sullivan] said. No word from mom if she had any regrets about giving birth to the lying child.
She said she wouldn’t mind sitting down and talking to the governor.
Sullivan said she disagrees with Brownback politically, particularly his decision to veto the Kansas Arts Commission’s entire budget, making Kansas the only state in the nation to eliminate arts funding. Brownback has argued arts programs can flourish with private dollars and that state funds should go to core government functions, such as education and social services.
“I think it would be interesting to have a dialogue with him,” she said. “I don’t know if he would do it or not though. And I don’t know that he would listen to what I have to say.”
Emma, what makes you think you have anything constructive to add to any discussion? In a time when people are having to go to food pantries because they’re hungry, homes are getting foreclosed, unemployment is high and monies available for help is extremely limited, you want to spend what little resources we have on arts? You selfish, childish, lying, disrespectful, ungrateful creature. Please endeavor to learn the proper way to conduct yourself. And please quit reflecting poorly on the people of this great state.
