The Appeals Court has issued a ruling and it’s pretty bad if you ask me. I don’t have time to go into much detail but here is the story. Basically they changed one word in SOS Carnahan’s disgraceful ballot summary. It doesn’t really matter at this point anyway because it’s too late to try to collect signatures to get it … Read More

Thanks be to God! Just got word today that Judge Joyce upheld the Cures Without Cloning challenge to Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s inaccurate and blatantly biased ballot summary for a constitutional amendment to truly ban human cloning in Missouri. I am incredibly pleased and quite frankly surprised at the ruling. The revised ballot summary reads as follows: Should the … Read More
