Opinion: Europe gets the joke of Fox News

Emmerson is a guest on opinion shows right? I don't watch much TV news. How is this "The News"? He gives his opinion...he can be wrong. If he we're reporting the acutal news...as given to him by actual network reporters and the AP...then it would be a joke.
If you look at CNN's opinion shows...they are no less left leaning than those of the right on Fox. right? They seem to report the same news though...just in a different package.

Bill would raise Kansas' minimum wage $3 by 2017

Does this bill feel as if it's based in logic or emotion? I agree with incremental increases based on our National and State economies. Decisions that actually consider small businesses. The same annoying voices complain about the Big Box Stores and Big Evil Corporations putting mom and pop out of business...then they support legislation that eventually leaves only the Giants able to compete with each other. Is that not the logical end to such drastic increases? Doesn't really matter which sector you look at. It'll be the same.
Also...If someone has been trying to make a living on minimum wage for more than 6 months...I believe they really need to evaluate their job performance. I don't know of any business, that has minimum wage employees, that doesn't evaluate performance and give raises at least every 6 months. If your efficiency and value increase...wages typically raise and should eventually top out at the market rate for a given skill set. Once that occurs...doesn't one look to climb another rung on the ladder? If they don't want to climb the ladder...do they really expect, say as a food server of shelf stocker or entry level office or manufacturing, to receive a raise every six months for the rest of their lives and not be expected to do more or receive more training? I just think it's a two lane road. They can get their big increases...but that doesn't guarantee their employer can afford it. They may just 'squeeky wheel' themselves out of a job.

Students receive part of $1,800 records request seeking Kochs' influence on hiring at KU

How Funny...
"...spreading their political ideology under the guise of academia".
Any sane citizen who has ever taken classes at a State University or College will tell you that statement encompasses about 90% of every staff...and they all lean left.
Those that can, do. Those that can't, try to teach it. How many successful business people are conservative? How many 'educators' are liberal? Just sayin'....the numbers don't lie. You can try though. Good luck.

Grand jury won't indict Ferguson cop in shooting

The main question...the 'real' question, IMO, is: Would any of this be an issue if Brown were white? The answer is no. That is the very sad question that all of those idiots burning the town need to ask themselves. It's the question that everyone questioning the cop needs to ask. If they wouldn't protest if he were white (which we all know they wouldn't)...then they are the racists. If our President was an actual leader and not a race baiter...he would ask them the same question. He's not...so...he won't.

Opinion: Climate change as a moral issue

Track the path and coal consumption of your Starbucks latte cup you just put in the recycle bin.
Ever consider how much carbon fuel exhaust you are pumping into the atmosphere by recycling everything? Your car, facility electricity to crush, diesel to a new location, breakdown, processing, rebuild? Even those things that do not harm the environment upon decomposition?
Though they are not being built...there is plenty of landfill space available for such items.
If you are a global warming alarmist who blames climate change on carbon fuel emissions and you recycle environmentally safe items...paper, cardboard etc....you are a walking contradiction.

Opinion: Climate change as a moral issue

Yep Mike...the problem is that 'scientists' have been crying wolf for so long that they have lost all credibility. When their livelihood as a 'Scientist' depends on their theory...they will say just about anything to keep the grant money flowing.

Fossil hunter attempting another go at getting state fossil named

"...because at some point you gotta realize that people do not want what you're recommending."
Ummm....YA THINK!!! Now...load up the legislature with a bunch of money wasting lefties and the state fossil would be anointed next week. If they can't afford it...they'll just raise the debt ceiling and put it on the credit card.

Brownback administration won't treat same-sex married couples the same for tax purposes

Nice headline. Where in the article does it show how they "won't treat same-sex married couples the same"?
Sounds like they're treating them the same....as illegitimate.
Some of you are hybrid socialists/communists and expect everyone to pay your way. You elect officials to reflect those views. Brownback is religious. He's also pretty bright. Like the Kansans that elected him. If you show him an apple and an orange and you tell him they are the same...he's going to argue with you.

Letter: Puppet leaders

Thanks. So you are all for only allowing children and elderly to be covered? Good. I'm glad you are taking a stand against the 'freeloaders' you referred to.

Letter: Puppet leaders

It doesn't matter who's in office. If they spend money they don't have and continue to steal from earners to give to non-earners...it doesn't take an economist to "predict future economic activity". There's just not enough of us to tap for your charity John.
