Baldwin City resident TerriLois Gregory has filed as a candidate for 10th District seat in the Kansas House of Representatives.

Gregory, a Republican, is seeking the post currently held by Tony Brown, D-Baldwin City.

Gregory says she stands for family values and Second Amendment rights. She also describes herself as a fiscal conservative.

Brown won the House seat two years ago over John Coen of Ottawa.

Brown has not filed for re-election yet.

Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, had held the position for four years prior to 2008, but he sought election to the Kansas Senate two years ago and was successful.

What are family values? That sounds rather empty and bogus.

Is she saying her family values are how the rest of us should live?

For more than 30 years repubs have claimed Family Values yet committed high crimes instead:

CRIME: Who hosted the Iran Contra secret illegal sale of weapons? Republicans! http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/nsa/publications/irancontra/irancon.html

CRIME: Which party illegally spied on the democrats to win an election? Republicans! Watergate! http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/watergate/index.html

My guess is her family values will not support public education any more than all of the other republicans that will not leave our state government tax dollar payroll.

Family values? What family? The Manson family? Jim Jones' family? If she supports the Second Amendment, she must support Charles Whitman's family values.

Candidate: Please reduce the palaver in your statements. Tell us specifically which family and what values?

I always find it amusing when anyone comes out in support of Democrats or Republicans in any election.

Seriously, how can you tell the difference??

All most all of them through a variety of programs support the same thing.

LESS FREEDOM and MORE GOVERNMENT, the same platform that has gotten us into the mess where in now.

BaldwinDad,

I would argue that the banks have had far too much "freedom" and not nearly enough government regulation. THAT'S what's gotten us into the mess we're in now.

Pywacket,

I second your sentiments about Representative Tony Brown. I hope he runs again.

meggers, you could argue you that all you want but you would be wrong, the problem is allot more simpler then that.

The real problem in your case is the Central Bank the Federal Reserve with lettting the banks borrower at such low interest rates then you have the Federal Govt belief that certain banks and companies were too big to fail.

With that attitude truly do you blame the banks for doing what they did when they knew that that their buddies running The treasury and the Federal Reserve would use our nations currency to bail them out at our expense. I mean to them this was all profit with no real risk.

Also keep in mind all the $$ that was spent on bank bailouts has been repayed for the most part, it's Federal Reserve Bailout of AIG and the Federal Govt. Bailout of GM that is costing us billions. But once again that was the current administrations way of buying votes.

Just as the last administration used foreign invasion to generate money for their friends and distract the public with fears of terrorists.

Granted this is very simplified but my point is that Dem or Rep, it doesn't matter they all support the status quo which is more Govt Power and Less Freedom for us.

People of Lawrence.....hear me loud. You will be making a huge mistake electing this woman into any position within your community.

I know her personally and without stooping to her level and bashing her character beyond belief, I shall say this....Lawrence residents, whether Democrat or Republican, beware of this individual!
