Local growers await farm bill reauthorization

I'd wager that a large portion of these farmers support politicians whose careers are founded upon or bolstered by the whole 47% and makers vs takers rhetoric, and that many of them are blind to the big disconnect between simultaneously being a welfare-receiving farmer and showing distaste toward most other welfare programs and recipients.

New car-sharing program available downtown

Sustainability? I thought that wasn't legal anymore in KS.

Editorial: Verdict is in

I posted this on the other thread and I'll repeat myself here: I'm sure you Zimmerman supporters out there would have a different reaction if it were you, or your offspring on the receiving end of unwarranted scrutiny, harassment, interference or impedance while peaceably conducting your or their own business ~ whatever that may be ~ by a neighborhood busybody with control issues and a loaded gun. And unfortunately, this verdict may very likely embolden fellow low-information gun-packing vigilantes ~ would-be Wyatt Earps ~ looking to take back the streets by accosting anyone they decide to single out, no matter the reason. And if their perceived authority is questioned or their orders ignored, deadly force is permitted.

Opinion: Verdict leaves key question unanswered

Charles Koch plans $200,000 media ad campaign in Wichita

Government overreach? Koch must have selective memory, considering the nanny-state agenda his minions at the state house have promoted the past couple of years.

Roberts votes against farm bill, Moran votes for it

More than $600k over ten years to his family's farm.... Where is the Republican outrage against this freeloading from the hard work of taxpayers? Crickets....

Opinion: Simple caring now seems controversial

The comment was not in reference to Pitts, but instead in response to a poster whose comments about "integrity" contradict his actions here.

Letter: Food stamps vital

Yes, like farming, except the wealthy farmers who receive massive handouts for the most part have the wherewithal to support themselves without our assistance. Ask Brownie.

Opinion: Simple caring now seems controversial

An excellent point. Someone in that situation would display zero credibility ~ and would cause readers to discredit all he wrote, which was already the case.

Opinion: Why gay role models matter

I challenge the notion that the sole reason folks get together is to procreate... and the fact that the world's population (how many billion now?) continues to double at an alarming rate seems to indicate that a few folks ~ gay or straight ~ who don't have children do no harm whatsoever to the survival of the species. If we're passing judgment on the actions of others, then who does mankind a greater disservice ~ a childless-by-choice couple or one who has a dozen or more children?
