Kansas Republicans don't see convention's tone as too harsh

We've known since Brownback's coronation that Dead In The Wool Kansas Republicans wear blinders any time they pull their heads out (of the sand).

Kansans split over questions about Melania Trump speech

Possibly not said before (by Bob Summers): "I think not."

CLAIM: Michelle Obama plagiarized Saul Alinsky in her 2008 Democratic National Convention speech.

WHAT'S TRUE: A portion of a single sentence from Michelle Obama's 2008 DNC speech bore resemblance to a single line from Saul Alinsky's book "Rules for Radicals."

Letter to the editor: Biased account

A Google search: "Donald Trump" "lies" = ~20,400,000 results (0.42 seconds). Is it possible there might be ONE source you could accept?

Bob Dole joins Twitter, swipes at incumbent Kansas congressman

Marshall's Issues, per his TV ad:

oppose abortion rights (see recent SCOTUS ruling)

repeal "Obamacare" (I've lost count on the # of votes that have failed)


Living in the 1st District has been an embarrassment for far too long: Jenkins, Huelskamp, and Bob's favorite pushing the same failed policies would continue the downward spiral.

Analysis: Brownback's view of Kansas economy as a 'three-legged stool' no longer accurate

As the son of a couple who met @ Beech Aircraft, this article has a GLARING OMISSION:

Beech Aircraft Company was founded in Wichita, Kansas, in 1932 by Walter Beech and his wife Olive Ann Beech.

Beech Aircraft Company > Raytheon > Goldman Sachs (Hawker Beechcraft) > Textron

Sam The Sham & The SayNOs just keep playing Brownback's dirge for Kansas, "My Numbers Don't Add Up (to nuthin' much)".

Chain retailer on 23rd Street files for bankruptcy, seeks buyer; new report says Lawrence one of the more unique cities in the country

Hmmmmmm . . . . in KS, could Lawrence be "most unique," or not? Seems to be a question for "linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts." I'm sure Brownback & the Legislature always use the appropriate terms for Lawrence!

Poll shows Clinton leading in Kansas; broad dissatisfaction with Legislature

Wasn't me, but had me wondering IF a certain party was now enforcing the use of certain gender-related terms by journalists of the mainstream media in KS.

Poll shows Clinton leading in Kansas; broad dissatisfaction with Legislature

There's something about that title . . . . . tongue in cheek?

Letter to the editor: Insulting visit

My great uncle was a survivor of the Bataan Death March. Your statements concerning Japan during & prior to WWII are cogent.

Your depiction of President Obama's visit to Hiroshima is invalid.

"Obama did offer condolences for the loss of those who died at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but nowhere in the full text of his remarks did he offer an apology:"

What's your opinion on the 2016 Kansas legislative session?

Pissin' in the Wind

Jerry Jeff Walker

Pissin' in the wind, bettin' on a losing friend

Makin' the same mistakes, we swore we'd never make again

And we're pissin' in the wind, but it's blowing on all our friends

We're gonna sit and grin and tell our grandchildren
