The End of 2010

Well, 2010 is almost over. We are ready for a new start. I decided to write a top ten list of things I would like to see in the upcoming year, or hopefully in the upcoming decade, at least:

1. It is unlawful in the state of Missouri to discriminate against people based on sexual orientation or preference;

2. It is unlawful in the state of Missouri to discriminate against employees over the age of 70 (yes, employers in Missouri can currently discriminate against people over 70);

3. The Missouri Legislature has the good sense to protect the rights of Missourians and reject the proposed amendments to Missouri human rights laws that benefit unscrupulous corporations;

4. The good citizens of Kansas City, Missouri refuse to re-elect Mark Funkhouser and elect someone who has the best interest of the city at heart;

5. The Kansas City Chiefs win the Super Bowl;

6. The Kansas City Royals get better, hopefully with a new owner, and stay in Kansas City;

7. We bring home our troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq;

8. We recognize the importance of education in this country and offer free public colleges to all;

9. We pay our teachers the same as we pay our doctors and lawyers and have the best teachers in the world for our children;

10. We treat each other with dignity and respect and love our fellow creatures on this earth.
