Two state senators plan to introduce a bipartisan bill this afternoon to balance state budget

January 5, 2010


— Two Kansas state senators have come up with a bipartisan initiative to balance the state budget.

Democrat Laura Kelly of Topeka and Republican John Vratil of Leawood scheduled a news conference Tuesday afternoon in the Senate chamber to outline their plan. They declined to discuss details beforehand.

Kelly and Vratil both serve on the Senate Ways and Means Committee, which handles budget legislation.

Kansas lawmakers begin their annual session Jan. 11 expecting to face the challenge of closing a budget shortfall of up to $400 million in the next fiscal year.

Close the legislature and the law schools for 5 years.

headline as of 8:45 AM: "Two state senators plan to introduce bipartisan bill to balance state budget this afternoon"

I know it's tough all over, but is a little copy editing too much to ask? According to the headline, two senators are proposing a bill that will create -- by this afternoon -- a balanced budget. Call me a cynic, but I think it's going to take longer than an afternoon to balance the state budget.

Alright, you're reading wayyyyy too much into the headline. If the reader has a brain, he or she knows what this means. DUH. They, the two senators, plan to introduce a bill this afternoon to help balance the state budget. Why would anyone think they're going to balance the budget this afternoon? Come on.

"Why would anyone think they're going to balance the budget this afternoon?"

Because someone, the headline writer here, said it was so.

We live in a world where people believe Obama isn't a citizen because someone on Fox said it was so.

Get it right LJW. Imprecise writing is preceded by imprecise thinking.

How about just reading the headline with accuracy, i.e., one word following after each other word? As I read the headline and have pasted it into my post here, the headline correctly reads as it presently stands: "Two state senators plan to introduce a bipartisan bill this afternoon to balance state budget".

Temperance: how about showing a little temperance? Maybe that would help. Or a little longer in school? :)

What this statement means to me is; to think of ways to help Everyone In America with New Positive Ideas that Will help to fix our problems, Focus On The Ball ! ! ( focus on the problems at hand and come up with potential New Ideas that will help to solve Our Problems)

“LEAD BY EXAMPLE” means to; come up with Ideas to Help Americans Lead The World By Example.

“UNITED WE STAND” “DIVIDED WE FALL” (these are not just words these are facts)

What this statement means to me is; To Work Together as a Nation using Ameri-Can Do Attitudes To Stand Together, To Solve Problems In A United Way, As Americans, As;

“WE THE PEOPLE” (not divided parties, not divided people that make it difficult and almost impossible to solve even the simplest problems)

Look to nature for proof of the above statement;

Look at what Ants accomplish together as a colony as a Team Working Together, look at their unbelievable STRENGTHS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS ! !

Then; Look at the one ant that you see once in a while by himself running around in circles, confused, lost and accomplishing nothing, this is what happens when we divide.


(Always trying to help as a Proud American in a Positive Way ! !)

Thank You, Respectfully, Michael V. Caldwell
