Teachers request $1,500 raises during negotiations with Lawrence school district administrators

Isn't it just like a union to demand a $1500 raise for *everyone* regardless of whether or not they have earned it? How about a $3000 raise for the top 20% of teachers? How about a $5000 raise for the top 5%? I am sure the union would just LOVE to have teachers compensated based on their performance...

An afternoon's hard work gets tree stump out

50 feet of chain and a truck should do the trick. If that won't work, a dollar's worth of gasoline will.

Let the Government Do It

Perhaps if the government were required to turn a profit, we would have better oversight of the people in charge of various programs. This "profit" could of course be returned to the American people in other ways.

Possible legal hurdle remains for homeless shelter

Seriously? Is that picture from someone's professional office? A stoner style picture of Obama and a rainbow/peace sign? It looks like the inside of a Spencer's store.

No-fly list infringes on basic American freedoms

Now we are entitled to freedom of commercial air travel?

Big 12 not dead yet

Nice picture. Whose camera phone did they use for that?
