Economists: Kansas to have higher unemployment rate than US

When you remember that there are 95 million people out of the labor market nationwide (the lowest labor participation rate in nearly 40 years) due to their screwy methods of counting, the national rate is probably at least double what is being reported. The old motto is true, "Figures lie and liars figure regardless of the facts."

You never hear Obama talk about the labor participation rate, but then again he said that under ObamaCare, your medical costs would go down and you'd be able to keep your doctor and your plan. Of course, that proved to be false also. Happy retirement, Barry! Don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.

Kobach, without evidence, supports Trump's false claim of 'millions' of illegal votes

Ken, just continue wallowing in your sorrow. You and your ilk are now basically irrelevant and have little or no credibility. Also, if you would like to Google the word "sociopath", you might learn something. The descriptions fit Barry perfectly.

Also, as Obama said to McCain in 2008, "the election is over. We won and you lost, and elections have consequences." Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Kobach, without evidence, supports Trump's false claim of 'millions' of illegal votes

I have no problem with recounts, Dorothy, as long as the Democrats and the Clintons will admit that they are hypocritical liars who said that failure to accept the election results by Trump would cause irreparable damage to our democracy. You are such a fool.

Carol, the point is that Obama looks down on people with whom he disagrees. It is a classic case of elitism and is representative of a sociopathic behavior, along with always blaming others for his failures. His legacy will eventually be a blip on the radar screen.

Now that Mr. Trump has been elected, I am glad that the Supreme Court did not overturn Obamacare. Had they done so, Obama would continue to claim that it would have been a success, when it clearly has been a monumental failure.

If Mr. Trump delivers on his promises, which I expect that he will, then liberalism may finally have been dealt the fatal blow for the future of this country. He's already saved thousands of jobs at Ford and Carrier, and this is probably just the beginning.

As for voter fraud, it is a lot easier to believe that undocumented people with driver's licenses and fake social security cards voted in California than it is to believe that somehow the Russians hacked the election system and swung the vote to Mr. Trump.

I know, Bob. I guess the old adage is true, "When you can't argue the facts, you just argue" or call people names. I'll try to keep that in mind in all of my future posts as well. Paul is obviously battling his own set of "demons."

Kobach, without evidence, supports Trump's false claim of 'millions' of illegal votes

Hey, Comrade Bob, the brothers and the seesters of the revolution are calling in Cooba, "Workers of the world unite." Or as some would say, "Garbage in, garbage out."

Also, if Trump is provocative and lying, then he is just following the example of Obama who has said, among the following:

1) Republican voters just sit at home clinging to their guns and religion.

2) The Fort Hood shooting was an example of workplace violence.

3) Isis is just the JV team.

4) Obamacare will let you keep your doctor and your plan.

5) Obamacare will lower your medical costs.

6) Bengazi was just a spontaneous reaction to a stupid video.

7) Our biggest threat is climate change.

8) If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon. (Never mind that there never was an indictment in the case.)

9) Michael Brown in St. Louis was a gentle giant. (Again, no indictment was ever forthcoming.)

10) The police in Baltimore killed Freddie Gray. While there was an indictment and the goofy mayor settled the case for millions of dollars, all the officers were acquitted.

11) There is not a smidgen of corruption at the IRS even though it was proven that they targeted conservative groups and a number of officials pleaded the 5th in their testimony.

12) There is no evidence that Hillary's e-mails were hacked or that she endangered national security, even though Wikileaks proved that hacking had occurred, and the Dems argued that the Russians were behind it. If so, I assume that Russia is still not our ally and that national security has likely been compromised.

13) The Boston police were stupid for interrogating a black man who appeared to be breaking into a home. Later, it was determined that the man was a professor who was trying to gain access to his home because he had forgotten his key. Kind of hard to blame the police for that, don't you say?

14) Republican legislators (who disagreed with him) are equivalent to terrorists.

15) Obamacare is not a tax when it was voted on in the Congress, but it was a tax when they argued the case before the Supreme Court.

I could go on, but space is limited. You'll notice that most of my examples have legal elements to them. That is for your benefit, since as an attorney, you certainly must respect our judicial system for the most part.

Also, if you want an example of an accurate headline, read the Topeka Capital-Journal whose headline refers to Trump's claims as an "assertion." Maybe the LJW could take a lesson.

Brett, you need a reading lesson. The headline clearly states that Trump's claims are false.

They may be, but nobody can prove it.

Also, for the last 8 years, we have had a President who had made many stupid and provocative statements, but I guess that is different. Chew on that a little.

Top presidential candidate advisers, others coming to KU for Dole Institute Post-Election Conference

Just what we need. A bunch of "talking heads" explaining something that most of them still don't understand. Maybe they all will start talking at once and drown each other out.

Also, the headline is not accurate. Saying his claims are "false" means you have evidence to support that. The fact is that neither side can prove their position unless there is a serious and honest investigation.

Just let it go, and try to make life for yourself.
