Hundreds from Lawrence area participating in Women's March on Washington

Just like I thought. This is a liberal women's march. Ho hum. More snowflakes and buttercups.

At least their parents were "pro life." Now I can put a face with a name in the case of Dorothy Hoyt-Reed. Kind of what I expected.

Hundreds from Lawrence area participating in Women's March on Washington

Is there a "pro lifer" in the bunch, or as has been reported in the news, are they not welcome to participate? Without inclusion, they have no mandate and are merely a liberal activist group which has little or no real power. God Bless them as they try to remain relevant.

Kansas Supreme Court rejects KNEA suit on teacher tenure

Very cogent, Larry and Randy. While "due process" is a hallmark of our legal system, nobody should be immune from a performance-based review.

Some GOP lawmakers in Kansas looking to cut school funding

It isn't the amount of money that matters, but where it is spent. After all, Madame Hillary hugely outspent President Trump, but where did it get her?

Donald Trump sworn in as nation's 45th president

To all of my liberal "friends." I recognize that you have to wish for failure by the Trump administration because you presumably are smart enough to know that, if he is successful, it will probably result in the further demise and perhaps destruction of "liberalism" in this country and possibly elsewhere in the world.

Just as President Trump smashed to "big blue wall" of Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Wisconsin during the election, a major reduction in the size of government and the reemergence of magnificent economic growth for Middle America and hopefully the poorer areas of this country will shatter the Democrats so called "stranglehold" on the minority coalition. Ultimately, "it is the economy, stupid!"

I give the Barack Obama legacy about 6 to 9 months, and then it will be reduced to one thing, our first black President, with the subtitle, "even a broken clock is right twice a day."

Kansas election officials threw out thousands of ballots

Blah, blah, blah, or maybe boo, hoo, hoo!

Numerous events in coming week will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day

My admiration for Dr. King continues to grow each year. He worked tirelessly to bring justice and peace to race relations. His leadership and inspiration is sorely missed.

Sebelius says Kansas needs to act quickly to expand Medicaid

Gee, Alex, no "shift" key on your computer. Am sure that Hillary would have a hissy fit seeing her name with a small "h". Aren't you part of the "We're with her" crowd?

I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that the Dems haven't been this mad since Lincoln freed the slaves or perhaps since the Republicans had to bail out the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by voting for it when southern Democrats like Al Gore, Sr. and William Fulbright and other segregationists wouldn't vote for it.

Sebelius says Kansas needs to act quickly to expand Medicaid

I believe it was Abraham Lincoln who said, "It is better to remain silent and be thought of as a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." I would encourage the liberals, the biased press, Hollywood, the so called Republican establishment, and those with "Trump Derangement Syndrome" to follow that advice. Otherwise, your road to recovery will be very arduous and long.

Just think. Donald Trump outsmarted you in the primaries, then the general election, and now he will do so throughout his administration. He's better at politics than practically all of the politicians , and he will bring a business approach to government which we have never had. The only regret is that the naysayers will be able to reap the benefits along with the rest of us.

C'est la vie!
