Brownback administration drops federal grant program to help people apply for food stamps

Gov. Brownback would be better perceived by Republicans and Democrats throughout the state, if he would instead of trying to force people to work for slave wages, and making rules for it to be hard for the poor to provide for their families, if he could make efforts to show how he is making the employment environment better so that companies will hire people into good paying jobs and treat and pay employees better. This way they can provide for their families without the need for welfare.

People generally want to work and would rather work, if given a good paying opportunity and the ability to be hired by a good company that is excited about employees working for them, and provide a way for employees to get ahead. But what happens too often today, the company ends up treating employees like enemies, looking for a way to get rid of them or write them up, while withholding wages and benefits and insisting on long hours so the company won't need to hire another person, making higher profit margins for the company.

Kansas Supreme Court reverses issuance of permit to build coal-fired power plant in southwest Kansas

While csp (thermal) solar in Spain is a massive concept, the cost would drive your electric bill to more than double what it is with coal currently. It would be more practical in the SW United States or a hot desert environment..

Yes, and maybe even they will shut down Westar electric coal plants too! However the side effect would be that Lawrence would come to a complete stand still and be in the dark.

Kansas delegation holds position of making government funding contingent on delaying Obamacare

If the Senate would have worked with the House and agreed to a budget earlier, (as they have had plenty of time to do) there would not be a problem now. The constitution is working as it should to allow the House to limit the out of control spending of the rest of government. That is why they hold the power of the purse.

Kansas delegation holds position of making government funding contingent on delaying Obamacare

The House in order to avoid a dictatorship from President Obama and Sen. Reid, may eventually be forced to cause a financial default of the US govt. debt in order to save the nation. This is because the democrats are not compromising and putting the country first and doing what it right.

Let's hope that wiser minds in the democratic party will prevail to avoid this scenario. The ways of wisdom are peace.

Kansas delegation holds position of making government funding contingent on delaying Obamacare

President Obama and Sen. Harry Reid's strategy is to force higher spending for the government, without agreeing to a budget, validated by the House and congress. The ultimate outcome if successful would be that the President and Sen. Harry Reid would plunge the country into a crisis every time they want to spend more than has been permitted by the congress. It would in effect strip the House of their constitutional power of the purse. This could in effect, create a dictatorship over the US. The President and Harry Reid need to compromise and do what is right for the country.

Government shutdown produces automated calls from Democratic Party group targeting Jenkins, Yoder

Just some friendly advice.

You can ignore reporting of facts that do not agree with the democrat view if you want. That is your choice, but it is produced for the benefit of those that want to hear the other side of the story, a more balanced view. I think most reasonable people would like to know both sides, so they are not only "blindly" in the camp of the hard line that the President and Harry Reid have put forth. They clearly want a government shutdown to force congress into higher spending levels beyond our means. President Obama has already spent too much and needs to concede his position and compromise for the good of the country. Government will still operate on a little lower budget, but the democrats in the Senate are going to have to be willing to compromise. Up to this point they have done nothing, but the House has tried many times to be flexible.
