Kansas House votes to limit access to police records

You know, if the police weren't involved in shady dealings, they wouldn't have to be afraid of their records being released. Treat everyone with respect, don't drink and drive, don't abuse your girlfriend or wife. These are the things that you don't want people to read about, right? The police don't need any more protection, they need to be stand-up citizens, and act as an example for the community.

I know, I know, not all cops. If you're not policing your brethren, then you are part of the problem.

Banner featuring Shawnee Mission North Indian mascot taken down at Lawrence High School

I'm not at all condoning the use of animals in circuses and zoos. However, it is very unlikely that there are millions of lions around the country that are demoralized or marginalized by the use of their image.

Trump administration weighed mobilizing National Guard for immigration roundups

I love how much of a draft they worked up for something they'd never seriously consider. Things I never seriously consider usually don't make it beyond "no, that's ridiculous, move on"

Trump administration weighed mobilizing National Guard for immigration roundups

I read something the other day that seemed to indicate that the president can take control of the national guard during emergencies, contrived or real.

You're offended by a chesty cartoon lion? Is it because of all the discrimination that lions have received throughout American history? I bet when someone lets out a roar, that's just the last straw for you, how dare people make fun of the way lions speak, they probably don't even know what they're saying in lion-speak.

Your argument is ridiculous, and you should be ashamed of yourself for lacking the empathy to put yourself in the shoes of a young native person.

Trump aide pushes false story of vote fraud

she got 8 years for doing something that a huge portion of Americans refuse to do... That's the reason most Mexican migrants came here in the first place; ample jobs that we're too lazy/prissy to do ourselves. But those are terrible jobs with terrible pay? You can thank your corporate overlords and shareholders for that.

Our system is completely f'd up, and getting worse every single day.

Kansas Supreme Court upholds death sentence

In Kansas, every life is precious, right up until it's born, and then the value of that life degrades exponentially based on skin color and economic status. The death penalty is state-sanctioned revenge, and costs more per individual than life imprisonment.

Sidewalk inspections to start in preparation for repair policy proposal

And let's not forget the major throroughfare that is Ousdahl between 24th and 26th street. This is one of the most highly traveled shortcut roads in the city. It is curvy and narrow, and doesn't have a sidewalk on either side of the street. This is a lower income neighborhood, and many of the residents walk or ride a bike. You can either take your chances in the street, or try to walk through the yards, though shrubbery, uneven terrain, and parked cars tend to make up that landscape. I invite the city managers to walk down that street nearly any time of day.

Lawrence is exactly like every other city in the country. The real reason your city has no money.

TL:DR, The city overbuilds infrastructure hoping to attract tax dollars. It never works.
