Rep. Ryun plans Lawrence visit

August 11, 2006


U.S. Rep. Jim Ryun, R-Kan., will be in Lawrence next week to meet with constituents in Lawrence at the UPS Store, 3514 Clinton Parkway, Suite A.

Ryun will be available to meet with customers and others beginning at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, said Chip Waite, store manager. Ryun will be expected to stay anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

"He can hear what's on people's minds, and we can hear what's on his," Waite said.

Let's hope it will be a farewell tour for Mr. Ryun, Bush's religious-right rubber stamp republican. He knows Lawrence is a liberal town, so the only place that he could meet at is the UPS store. Therefore won't be enough people to fit in the room to create deafening heckling - in his good ear.

30 min to an hour. great will spend as much time there as he has doing his job in congress in the last session. probably will accomplish more. Will it be a prayer session?

I'd like to ask Ryun why he was living way out in Jefferson County (lower taxes?) while his children were attending Lawrence High School.

I'd also like to know why he felt it was appropriate to give a "You must be Born Again" spiel at South Junior High (when I attended there in the mid-80s) when he was only invited there to talk about his track career.

Mr Ryun here's a thought,

I would say that British Intelligence have well proved that an all out war killing thousands upon thousands of innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan is doing little to make the war on terror viable. Covert intelligence operations concentrated in the right places is the most effective although not as sensational and accompanied with wanton destruction of property and families.

Blair is going bye bye sooner than he had planned due to his blundering part in the Iraq slaughter. And Bush has more planned slaughter on his table in other countries. When the Bush admin speaks of regime change in Iran or Syria WE KNOW what that means. Iraq and Afghanistan are perfect examples.

Those trillions of tax dollars being spent in Iraq and Afghanistan could have been better spent on alternative energy, healthcare for all,bribing the USA auto industry to manufacture more hybrids as well as public and higher education. Think of the payback in terms of jobs for americans.

Respectfully Yours, Richard Heckler

Ryan is an incompetent, weak embarassment. He needs to go home so he has more time to run in of his few skills, other than plotting to try and run American's private lives.

Imagine that, he's got anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to meet with his constituents.

Hopefully, after next elections Mr. Ryan, you will have plenty of time to visit with whomever you want as a private citizen.

What, he's going to ship something he sold on ebay, and since he's there, he's going to talk to the voters?
