OKAY! Dory Mills, I'm getting "bad vibes" from your hair.

I don't think it quite matters what governor is in office. So what if there's a blue seat in an otherwise blood red state? We're still grappling with ID and evolution, but gays have been successfully subdued... Ohhhh wait is this about the ABORTION thing?

Topside 12 years, 9 months ago

I wouldn't mind seeing a change. Sebilius seems to be on autopilot to me. I haven't seen any decent changes to government besides getting rid of all the excess state vehicles. BUT, all the state does is give a bunch of money to Enterprise rent-a-car (a ST. Louis Co.) to fill the void by the lack of state vehicles. So...what did we really save?

Topside 12 years, 9 months ago

Dory, what's with all them negative waves?

Richard Heckler 12 years, 9 months ago

By golly I do believe Christie may be on to something...

gccs14r 12 years, 9 months ago

Yes she should run. We also need to dump Kline and anyone else trying to drag us back to the days of The Inquisition.

Topside 12 years, 9 months ago

Reacharound-That post was not as nice as your name suggests.

Richard Heckler 12 years, 9 months ago

Derrick Sontag,

My word do you not have more important matters to deal with in life? If you want to shore up the party perhaps you ought to ask Connie Morris to step down as she attempted to take taxpayers for a ride aka fraud.

Kathleen Sebelius is a very intelligent moderate governor with excellent plans for Kansas on the table. She may not be a bleeding heart liberal but she is an excellent governor and moderates are the best choice. I do believe moderate politicians make wise choices because they generally do not vote strictly party line.

The Kansas neocon republicans have Moderate Republican Tom Sloan on their hit list as well. His voting record speaks for itself and again I do believe moderate politicians make wise choices because they generally do not vote strictly party line.

Thus far the Kansas neocon republicans on the list of candidates are anything but moderate and seem to be taking their que from Washington D.C. which again is not moderate in any sense of the word. They also accept campaign funds from D.C. based organizations such as Club for Growth whose director and initiator was Brownbacks former chief of staff.

Rove/Cheney/Bush/Brownback/Ryun neocon republicans are taking the country down the economic tubes. They are trying to take Kansas with them. These are the guys and girls who go after other republicans who make sensible choices and vote across the aisle once in awhile. Reaganomics is not good for the country or Kansas.

neopolss 12 years, 9 months ago

Rick Norris is the reason that we have such a division in government. Idiot voters like him who support a candidate with no knowledge of what they stand for. It's about who is more QUALIFIED for the position, who has the best character, who plans to do the most and who cares the most. The problem with being a party loyalist is that one gets caught up in winning. It's not a baseball game. Winning the position doesn't mean you yourself has won as a taxpayer.

conservative 12 years, 9 months ago

Neopolis - you are showing your bias. You are picking on Rick Norris because he says he is a republican but he also mentions an issue. You didn't say anything about Ryan Ridnour who simply states that a republican state needs a democrat governor to balance things out.

Other than that I agree with you and your statement. I usually end up voting republican but I will vote democrat or other parties if I believe that is the right person for the job.

christie 12 years, 9 months ago

I hope she runs and wins. This country needs more conservatives in office. The Republicans have turned out to be big-time liberal spenders. They liberally send troops into countries where they don't belong based on lies. They liberally give tax breaks to the rich. They liberally give tax breaks to people driving gas guzzling SUV's.

We need more CONSERVATIVES running this country, not more LIBERAL Republicans.

harrierist 12 years, 9 months ago

The Packaderms sent troops to the Iraqis based on inaccurate data from operatives in the Middle East, And also the State of Israel. We got to this state because Bush One and Clinton reduced the man power of the CIA, Thus Intelligence sucked by the time Bush One got in office. The Governor should run for re-election. Both the Kansas Packaderms and Jack Asses spend too much of the Tax payers money on projects that don't inspire intrinsic motivation from its people. Instead Kansas has become a State with too many suckling pigs. The mother sow of Kansas has too many tits (social agencies) attached to state government. The Mother Sow of Kansas is of course the Republican Legislature. Eastern Kansas has become to crowed and a depressing place to live.

neopolss 12 years, 9 months ago

conservative, my statement goes against Rick more as he states verbatim that he is a Republican, emphasising that this point is more important that any issue on the table. Ryan's logic is a common logic followed by many and does suggest some sort of balance. While it is flawed logic at best, it does not come out swinging "I'm democrat!" like Rick's pro-rep statement. As far as my bias, I wouldn't subscribe myself to either of the two party monsters. Neither has managed to keep the American people as its primary focus. They're too caught up in the political winning and losing game.

hawkrew 12 years, 9 months ago

What a wonderful answer Rick Norris, b/c the republican state senate and house have done a wonderful job dealing with education....

beatrice 12 years, 9 months ago

Yes, she should run, and she will likely win.

RA: "just goes to show that all Republicans are ugly morons." That is harsh and out of line. Not all Republicans are ugly. : )

Speaking of Republicans: I have another joke for you, which I was told was in Newsweek. When asked about his views on Roe versus Wade, President Bush replied, "I don't care how those people get out of New Orleans."

Just a little levity folks.

sunflower_sue 12 years, 9 months ago

No freaking way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That, or I'd love to see her run and only get 2% of the vote.

Let's see, I still remember her comment that she was more afraid to drive on roads in MO than she was at the WTC on 9/11.

And what's with her OKing casino's near the racetrack without bothering to find out if that's what the public really wants?

I just don't care for that woman!!!!!!!!

Have a good day ya'all!

Topside 12 years, 9 months ago

Einstein? Is that the best you got? OMB-generally has a lot smarter posts than the trash you've been trowin' out today. If your post was some sort of sarcastic humor(it bombed), just say so. If it was meant to actually seem like you or your side is "better" than someone else it was not intelligent. Sorry.

bthom37 12 years, 9 months ago

Yes, she should, as I would truly hate to see that jack@ss Kline get any more power.

Seriously, all he's done with his job is posture for a run at the Governor's office.

Sebelius is a fine governor; she's moderate, and willing on occasion to show the spoiled children of the legislature that not everything can go their way.

Topside 12 years, 9 months ago

BTW-I don't really have a side. I vote on each issue as it comes. I reg. republican when I was 18, but have no qualms going with feel. A good example was the joker they put up against Gov. Sebelius last time. Yikes! Actually, I am probably talking out of turn on today's topic since I rarely vote anyway. Had I voted in the last election I would have voted for Seb., but I have since been unimpressed. She has prob. lost my "moral" vote though.

bthom37 12 years, 9 months ago

And now having read the article, I can safely say this is either a A) tempest in a teacup or B) mountain out of a molehill. Take your pick.

Shardwurm 12 years, 9 months ago

Personally I like the way she's given in-state tuition to illegal aliens.

Afterall, we want people from Missouri paying more to come here than an illegal immigrant, don't we?

Talk about trying to buy votes. Give me a break.

Topside 12 years, 9 months ago

Shardwurm-I hear that! I love that she did that. I don't know what part of illegal and alien these people don't understand. maybe it's the illegal or maybe the alien. It must be that they cancel each other out to make a whole legal citizen. Hey, my grandfather didn't get in-state tuition he had to bust his hump just like everyone else.

Linda Aikins 12 years, 9 months ago

I personally think OMB IS Einstein and wouldn't be surprised to see OMB with q-tip hair. OMG just oozes brilliance and originality. OMB for governor!!!

Ban q-tips.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

Let's see, the Democrat Party stands for

The slaughter of the unborn while molly-coddling mass murderers like John Robinson and the Carr brothers

Moral perversion. Let's move the capitol to Hollywood

Undermining our foreign policy

Exploiting the poor through legalized gambling (have to get campaign funds from somewhere)

Reducing our democracy to a totalitarian state run by a small pack of unelected and unrepresentative tyrannical leftist judges

Totalitarian speech patterns like forbidding our children from reciting the Pledge.

Assaulting institutions like the Boy Scouts who teach children traditional values of honesty and integrity while dumping plateloads of garbage into our schools in the guise of homework (see

Religious bigotry

And, of course I could point out that liberalism has become the official language of government corruption in every major city in the nation as millions upon billions are looted to go into the pockets of all these "altruistic" liberals.

Democrats, a corrupt and perverse Fourth Reich in waiting.

Dani Davey 12 years, 9 months ago

For the next year everyone is going to be quick to blame Sebelius for things they don't like, things like the in-state tuition for illegal aliens. And while it's certainly fair to have gripes about the Governor, I'd just like to remind all of the Republicans out there that all the things you dislike about Governor Sebelius, had to go through the Republican House and Senate too. Maybe you should get off her back and start talking to your local legislatures since they're the ones who actually get these initiatives in committee and then on the floor. Plus, to anyone who wants to say that the Governor hasn't done much in the last four years, I'd say that isn't true and if you want to complain to someone, I'd complain to Doug Mays as he's the one who gets to schedule what gets to the House floor.

rhd99 12 years, 9 months ago

Governor Sebelius gets my vote in her re-election bid. For all naysayers of our governor, GET OFF HER BACK! You want to blame someone, start blaming that group of hypocritical Republican legislators in Topeka who don't have a clue about their OWN funding priorities. Another thing, since this is a "red state" & Sebelius is from the "blue side", let's get something straight here, we have all heard about the issues of abortion & education here in Kansas. One way to resolve the abortion issues that have dogged us for years, is to vote OUT Phil Kline! He like other right-wing extremists across the country hate doctors who perform abortions. You know what, GOVERNMENT, you all don't have the rights to tell a woman, her family, & doctor when a woman can or can't have an abortion. You will never win. If Doug Mays runs against Sebelius, I look forward to his political demise next year.

b_asinbeer 12 years, 9 months ago

Don't blame stuff that went wrong on Sebelius. After all, it's the damn Republicans in the state house and senate that keep messing things up for us in Kansas (like underfunding our schools by over 100million dollars before the state supreme court intervened). I say keep Sebelius and weed out the extreme conservatives in the state house and senate.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

Yes, rhd99, by all means, you just keep putting up dead babies as your #1 priority. That's a sure road to victory for the Democrat Party.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

Ahh yes, b_asinbeer, dead babies and now a vote for judicial tyranny. Yet another real vote getter for you Democrats. It's a wonder there's a Republican left in office.

rhd99 12 years, 9 months ago

Ok, John, so, tell us this: What happens when schools are not funded here in Kansas? Are we going to close schools? Yeah, that's a real good option (NOT). What happens when a woman suffers during her pregnancy a rape or incest? She can't have an abortion because of that abusive relationship? Get real.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

And manufacturing straw men that don't exist isn't a real vote getter either. Your claims are just too exaggerated.

Nobody has suggested not funding the schools and are you really trying to claim that all those late term abortions are the result of rape and incest?

"Oh my goodness, look at this, I was raped 8 months ago, I'd better get an abortion!"

You're the one that needs to get real. No, I take that back, you just keep pushing dead babies and massive tax increases for useless government schools. We like you guys right where you're at.

rhd99 12 years, 9 months ago

So, John, you don't believe in strong education system here in Kansas, do you? If that's the case, then it goes right back to right-wing extremists on the board of education who CLAIM Darwin's theory of evolution is false. Nobel Laureates, sad to say, had to write to our inept board to remind them that biology is based on Darwin's theory. You want to question those highly educated Nobel Laureates? I dare you to challenge their beliefs.

captain_poindexter 12 years, 9 months ago

sebelius is the governor of kansas. if people have gripes, she has to answer to them. but one thing I agree with, she isn't to blame for not increasing taxes, you can blame the ks legislature for keeping our taxes least until 2006 when we all have to pay for kids going to school in liberal, ks. very excited about that....

captain_poindexter 12 years, 9 months ago

I'll question nobel laureates. nobody is above political posturing. nobody. just b/c they are nobel laureates doesn't make them immune to partisanship.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

Ok, I challenge their beliefs. That's what science is about. What you're talking about is dogma.

What you're also talking about is another straw man. I said nothing about not believing in strong education. Indeed, I do believe in strong education. That's why I think our current government schools suck.

you just keep battling straw men. It's great practice. Remember now, don't ever address the real arguments, that's a loser, and you don't want to be a loser.

To one more bob, if you think a posting is out of line, you have to click on the "suggest removal" thing attached to the posting.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

One of the beauties of remaining cloistered in Lawrence is that you don't have to confront the real world. You can live in a world of fantasy where everything fits into academe's grand theories.

However, you're going to have to continue to hide up on the hill safely in those classes where "academic freedom" protects the only view that's allowed to be expressed if you don't want to get shot down.

rhd99 12 years, 9 months ago

Poindexter, let me ask you this question: I said earlier that I am pro-choice, meaning that I leave the decision up to a woman, her family, & doctor/s about whether or not she wants an abortion. I am against the government restricting women's re-productive rights & freedoms. Just b/c anti-abortion advocates like KLINE & other Republicans here in Kansas despise abortions, that does not give them the right to over rule a woman, her family, & doctor/s, does it? By the way, I DO NOT promote the killing of babies, but in a pluralistic society, I support a woman's right to choose. Am I a proponent of baby killing? If I am, as someone earlier claimed, prove it.

rhd99 12 years, 9 months ago

Ok, John, what's your solution to our education funding problem? By the way, what you said earlier about my promotion of baby killing, YOU were grasping at straws. In case you FORGOT, this is America, land of Freedom. Women have RIGHTS! So, in terms of evolution, what makes our Nobel Laureates WRONG about Darwin's theory, Mr. Straw Man?

rhd99 12 years, 9 months ago

Poindexter, I wanted to get another person's point of view in here, because as I stated earlier, I was accused supporting baby killing because I am pro-choice in a pro-life "red state". I am a proponent of baby killings. What a LOAD OF CRAP, JOHN!

captain_poindexter 12 years, 9 months ago

for the record, I don't think you promote baby killing. its that you hold certain "rights" above the death of babies. I don't agree, but its your right to think that, and currently it is the law of the land.

but, no, I don't think you LIKE babies dying, you just have different priorities than I have. my priority is life. your priority is a woman's right to choice.
I can live with that, no worries. we just diagree.

kansaskev61 12 years, 9 months ago

The only thing I have learned from reading all the responses is that liberals are basically mean spirited. If you don't agree to their way of thinking, out come the words like "idiot" or "moron". I'm not an "idot" or a "moron" and thank god, I'm "not" a liberal! Let Kathleen run for re-eleciton. It's a free country.

rhd99 12 years, 9 months ago

Thank you, captain. That is all I needed. I appreciate your sensitivity even during heavy levels of disagreement we have here.

raven 12 years, 9 months ago

I think the Gov. should run again. I support her completely. Rhd99: Just ignore John, it is hardly worth getting upset over. You two will never see eye to eye.

It is good to have different parties controlling different aspects of the Government. Ex: a Republican controlled legislature and a Democratic Governor that way many laws that should not be passed are not. If everyone is affliated with the same party many laws get passed too easily.

Linda Aikins 12 years, 9 months ago

John123456789, I guess you don't read these much? You don't have to do anything to have postings removed. Some days you just have to get out of bed and your posting gets removed. And I too think his post is worse than things others have "said" that got x'd.

Really - it's that simple!

rhd99 12 years, 9 months ago

Thanks, Raven & poindexter. You two are the fresh air needed on this board. Later.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

You cannot ask someone not to criticize a scientific theory and claim to be speaking for science at the same time.

I'm not convinced we have an education funding problem. I think we have an education administration problem.

And no, I haven't forgotten, you're right, this is America, land where human life used to mean something. A baby in the womb isn't going to become a Ford Pinto, or an oak tree just because you want to kill it. It's a baby. It's human life, and you have no right, OK from screwball liberal judges, or not, to slaughter an innocent human being.

However, the abortion issue has certainly destroyed the myth of the compassionate woman. 40 million dead babies killed by their own "mothers". Oy, now there's feminist theory in action for you.

beatrice 12 years, 9 months ago

John1945: "Democrats, a corrupt and perverse Fourth Reich in waiting." Oh really.

So, is John truly the voice of the Republican party? His statements don't at all sound like the rantings of an "ugly moron," now do they? If RA's words about Republicans are being criticized here for representing "common dung flinging," where is the backlash toward John's cannon blast of hateful comments? RA doesn't represent me, and hopefully John doesn't represent others.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

Let's rephrase just a bit:

"but, no, I don't think you LIKE Jews dying, you just have different priorities than I have. my priority is life. your priority is the Fatherland's right to choice. I can live with that, no worries. we just disagree."

Hey, what's 40,000,000 dead babies between friends? That's what civilized discourse is all about, isn't it. Just silly disagreements.

avhjmlk 12 years, 9 months ago

As a name-metamorphizing (woah, is that really a word?) member of this post (avhjohn1945mlk), I must congragulate Gootsie for the personal giggle I got from your 1:35. I'm not joining the debate, but I'm enjoying it.

beatrice 12 years, 9 months ago

Despite John's continued ugly and ignorant comments, in the spirit of fun I have decided to respond to his list of what it means to be a Democrat with this list of:

Things You Have to Believe to Be a Republican Today.

  1. Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

  2. The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing UN resolutions against Iraq.

  3. Government should relax regulation of Big Business and Big Money, but crack down on individuals who use marijuana to relieve the pain of illness.

  4. "Standing Tall for America'" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.

  5. A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

  6. Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

  7. The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

  8. Group sex and drug use are degenerate sins, unless you someday run for governor of California as a Republican.

  9. If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

  10. A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

  11. HMOs and insurance companies have the interest of the public at heart.

  12. Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.

  13. Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

  14. Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

  15. A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

  16. Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

  17. The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's military and driving records is none of our business.

  18. What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.

  19. Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

  20. That the war in Iraq isn't about oil at all, but about freedom.

acg 12 years, 9 months ago

John1945 is really bothered by this "deady baby" thing he keeps ranting about and I think he has a valid point. From now on, all unwanted babies shall be delivered to his house. What's your address, John? We want to make sure they get to the right place.

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

Well, so much for debate, we're back to the "ugly morons" accusations. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with the statement "Democrats, a corrupt and perverse Fourth Reich in waiting" in rational prose, of course.

Which major city run by Democrats isn't known for corruption? When did the Democrat Party come out in favor of high moral standards, and when have they spoken out against those in their party who support totalitarian speech patterns, religious bigotry and judicial tyranny? Inquiring minds want to know.

neopolss 12 years, 9 months ago

John1945, I find it funny that you have a problem with these "liberal" judges. I find it hilarious that they are "activist" when it opposes your opinion of interpretation. Forgive me, but that door swings both ways. I find Democrats complaining just as much about our court judges. In all fairness though, the majority of courts are currently hosting Republican appointed and mostly conservative judges. It seems that not all of them are interested in party politics.

Your outburst of unholiness towards the Democratic party is indeed nothing new, however you would be very foolish indeed to believe that the Republican party holds your interests at heart any more then the Dems. Believe in delusions if you want, but it remains the position of each American to critic the whole system, not simply the party out of favor.

neopolss 12 years, 9 months ago

John1945, a Hitler argument? tsk tsk. Surely you can muster a better rebuttel.

heretoday 12 years, 9 months ago

This is another blog that just reemphasizes that republicans and democrats will never get along!!! Reading these posts make me curl. I think the Conservatives should just take the Liberals to the back ally and both can get it over with. Then, we can move onto more important issues AS IN THE TOPIC today rather than banter on about unimpressable the last posted! Glad everyone is in such a great mood today!

John1945 12 years, 9 months ago

neopolss, a refusal to respond? tsktsk. Surely you can muster a better rebuttal.

Oh well, tedium time, rant at your liesure, kids, I can see the debate is over for today.

Linda Aikins 12 years, 9 months ago

avhjohn1945theoriginalbobonemorebobmlk, I'm so proud of you for blending in and making us all one. And I, like you, will not be joining in this debate, nor do I read anything that is more than 10 seconds of reading.

b_asinbeer 12 years, 9 months ago

I say 4 more years for Sebelius and leave it at that.

neopolss 12 years, 9 months ago

John1945, crux of my response was the post before. That is, before I posted again concerning your nazi argument. I cannot see how you would not notice the response previous, unless you simply posted too quickly. You say the debate is over, yet you haven't brought anything to debate with other than slandering nazi accusations. I've seen much better.

beatrice, while I typically am in disagreement with you, I did find the list the most amusing thing on here today. In true renfest spirit, huzzah!

beatrice 12 years, 9 months ago

John: When you accuse me of being morally perverse just because I am a Democrat, you make it clear that you are not interested in "debate." Also, if you have been around this site for any period of time you would realize that there are plenty of Democrats who are against abortion.

AnnieVickieHeatherJohn1945MarrianeLorenKristen: Please feel free to jump on in, since this has yet to take the form of a "debate." I just chalk it up to the "liberal" media for lobbing up a softball question that just begs people to go on the attack against the Governor specifically and Democrats in general.

No to the question.

Republicans and Democrats are two different sides of the same coin heading in the same destructive direction playing off of each other for public consumption. Both are funded by the corporate borg...

TOB-I checked the rest of the posts from Friday, since noone had responded to my Abba Zabba question when I left work. An Abba Zabba is an old school candy bar that is a big bar of taffy with a ribbon of gooey peanut butter in the middle. Very delicious, but vey hard to find.

PS-I sorry to get off of the riveting topic of the day. But, I know it was gnawing at you all weekend.

Linda Aikins 12 years, 9 months ago

Oh and there are some for sale on eBay.

go figure!

Topside 12 years, 9 months ago

Thanks guys, I have looked online before, but I was hoping to get some without the aid of cyberspace. I guess I'll have to order them. My other favorite candy is the "Mary Jane"(seriously). It is another old school candy from NECCO that is just like a bit-o-honey except it tastes like peanut butter. Yes, I have a PB addiction problem.

mermily 12 years, 9 months ago

truly i should be ashamed i don't have more self control, but i just can't help responding. just once. it is like the morbid fascination of watching a horrible accident that you know you don't want to see and thats imagine you don't want in your mind. i actually have wasted over 20 minutes reading this in mesmerized horror. i can't stop chuckling and now here i go...posting away.

the topic of my posting has zero to do with the question posed and, as one poster smartly noted (The_Original_Bob), it is unlikely people's minds will be changed on an anonymous message board....and yet still i respond.

John1945 wrote about the compassion of woman as evidenced in "40 million dead babies killed by their own 'mothers'. Oy, now there's feminist theory in action for you." we do know, even here in kansas, that the basis of the feminist movement isn't how compassionate woman may or may not be, but that they have the same capacity for intellectual thought- right? right?

this statement seems to be evidence that we all might need to slow down, think of what we are writing, and then laugh at ourselves and delete it!! i know i should.

i don't think she has a good reputation, but her daddy was governor of ohio, so she'll run again. too many special interests depend on her.

avhjmlk 12 years, 9 months ago

Actually, wasn't her dad a republican governor? I'm not sure that necessarily helps (but it also might not hurt)...hard to tell.

I'm one with Topside on the peanut butter--food of the gods! I come from a peanut-butter-on-american-cheese family...Anyone else out there with strange combos?

Oh my gosh! Peanut butter and banana AND peanut butter and pickle(dill) sandwiches are the best!!!!! If you have not tried are missin out!

You must have missed my post about Abba Zabbas. They have them at Party America on 23rd St. At least last time I was there they had them. They are the bite size ones, but not sure how much they are. My son fav taffy type candy ( we are from Cali ) that he used to get at Albertson's.

Go and check and let me know if they are still there.
