Opinion: America greatest when it’s inclusive

More inclusive, David? Does your version of inclusive include Christians, gun owners, people who refuse to buy into man made climate change, people who don't care if some snowflake gets offended by a misconstrued view of the meaning of an historical artifact? Somehow, I doubt that. We all know what you want your definition of "all [ex]clusive" is.

Opinion: King Henry VIII pays us a royal visit

This piece is as hysterical as it is hypocritical. We just spent eight years under the most narcissistic and egocentric President in the history of the United States. Go find your safe space, Jaime. It's going to be a very traumatic four to eight years for you.

Who paid for all those job applicants, including Kris Kobach, to visit Trump Tower?

Seems to me the whole article is pointless and hypocritical, especially when you consider the money that both the Clintons and the Obamas waste, er, spent. I don't recall seeing any scathing articles about that in the good ol' LJ and W in the day.

Opinion: Struggling to understand the new U.S.

So China is afraid that the United States, via Trump, will once again develop a spine and not allow itself to be dominated by liberal communists. I don't see why there is an issue.

Letter to the editor: The Russian factor

Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper all discounted the CIA suits' claim that Russia interfered with the election. Julian Assange said the e-mails came from a disgruntled DNC worker, who had legal access to them and who was angry that the Democratic primary was rigged against Bernie Sanders. Talk about believing fake news! So, tell me, were you all this upset when Obama stuck his nose in and tried to influence the elections in Israel? Of course not, it was the Messiah, Obama so that's okay.

Local businessman has plans for gun range near Douglas County Jail

So, this might be a surprise to many of you, but we do NOT have a gun problem in the United States. Back in the 50' and early 60s, a lot of rural kids had their rifles and shotguns in the back of their vehicles and head off for school because they would go hunting after their classes were finished. There were relatively few school shootings back then. So why are shooting more prevalent now? It's not because there are still guns around. Guns do not think for themselves. Some of the things that are not around as much as they were back in the day are: respect for others, the quantity of parental guidance in a child's life (i.e. someone who takes an active interest in what the child is viewing on the Internet or the content of their video games), teaching kids how to use a firearm properly instead of killing two or three hundred bad guys every night between getting home from school and dinner time, face to face interaction with others. I could go on, but the issue isn't how many guns we have, it's about what and how we teach our kids.

Olathe police shoot, kill person reportedly armed with 'blunt object'

As it turned out, the officers did deploy a Taser type tool. It was ineffective.

Olathe police shoot, kill person reportedly armed with 'blunt object'

Blake, please look up the definition of Aggravated Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer under Kansas statutes. Allowing the information presented is a brief but accurate account of the details, when the suspect struck the victim officer with the blunt object, the suspect turned the encounter into a lethal force situation. The firing officer's use of force would be reasonable and appropriate given the totality of the circumstances.

Opinion: Trump’s cabinet is signaling trouble

The fact that the left is getting concerned about P-E Trump's cabinet choices proves he is making the right choices.

Several hundred protest President-elect Trump in downtown Lawrence

How many times did we hear that Trump would have to accept the results of the election when it was "a given" that Hillary would win? I guess the rules only apply to Conservatives. Very hypocritical behavior.
