To the editor:

I want to congratulate the Kansas House of Representatives on a job well done. In the past few days they have put out a lot of special, highly important things.

They’ve debated in committee the destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21 (cue the music from “Plan 9 from Outer Space”). Never mind it’s a nonbinding resolution; we have to be against it because it smacks of rampant environmentalism.

They passed and sent to the Kansas Senate some of the most restrictive anti-abortion legislation in the country. Lance Kinzer, a leading anti-abortion representative, hopes the Senate will take the bill up and pass it quickly. This, because the governor’s pen is dripping ink ready to sign it and make it a state law. Women, you do realize that if this law passes, your doctor can outright lie to you and you will have no recourse? In essence, if the governor signs it, then it will protect unethical medical practices.

These are but two of the things that have come before deciding on a redistricting map so we will know who our choices are when we vote. It’s not at all important for us to know what district we’re in when we vote. That falls behind Agenda 21, anti-abortion legislation and (Secretary of State) Kobach’s laws.

Yes, congratulations to the Kansas House. You have once again demonstrated to the country and to the rest of the world just how backward, parochial and adolescent Kansas is. Thank you. Well done.

"You have once again demonstrated to the country and to the rest of the world just how backward, parochial and adolescent Kansas is."

No Mr. Reed, they have not. They have demonstrated the will of the majority of Kansans as expressed by their elected representatives. If you don't like it, perhaps you should help campaign to elect representatives who behave more to your liking, or you could move. You have choices available to you that are a lot more effective than throwing tantrums on the Op Ed page.

If our gov. and sec'y of state and legislature are infuriating the far-left of Lawrence, then they are most likely acting responsibly and in the best interest of Kansas; short and long term.

But my, my the vitriole Mr. Reed! Mercy sakes!

But, when I and others speak out against the disaster in the white house---well we know what you call us......(starts with an "r" and ends with a "t"). Liberals just love to categorize people; makes for easier management.

What a nice way to put it.

I really think the courts are going to have to do the job of the legislature, because they are too stupid to do it. They didn't want to fund education; they won't draw a redistricting map that is logical and won't end up in court. Instead they want to solve problems that don't exist, or pass laws controlling people's lives. I call the present group of radical Republicans liars. They say they don't want to expand government, yet they have passed laws that have expanded government to new highs. Liars. Not untruths. Lies.

Just how do you figure you are qualified to judge who is a "real" Republican, merrill? You being a GINO off to the sinister side of Lenin and all.

Yes but understand the people ruining Kansas are not republicans. It is a group of radicals with right wing Libertarian Facist leanings accompanied by pro fundamentalist rhetoric which have infiltrated and destroyed the GOP. Congressional GOP was killed so now the same money and thinkers intend to wipe out the GOP state by state.

The question is why have republicans remained silent on the sidelines as their party disappeared right before their very eyes?

Stop voting GOP because new candidates are NOT GOP.

Sam Brownback intends to get rid of as many GOP thinkers in the upcoming election as possible. He wants yes people. He does not take well to challenge.
