Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

Goodbye everyone. I don't post here much anymore but this will finish it for me.

I'll leave you with one last jab at the Education Industry: It's a complete rip-off and someday the system's insatiable desire for money will crush the middle class.

Instead of 'fixing' health care we should have focussed on making education affordable. Alas, we didn't and now it's running amok and burdening people with mortgage-level debt when they're only 22 years old (or emptying already-depleted retirement accounts of their parents).

That's something to be proud of for sure.

And they still scream for more money to 'retain' professors who don't teach, but are instead forced to do research to bring in even more money. It's an absolute train wreck.

Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

Their journalism removes all credibility and professionalism from The LJW. KC Star switched to this last month and the posts have dropped about 80 percent.

Jayhawks and zombies make for an ever-so-Lawrence homecoming parade

Yes, zombies are appropriate when representing KU - especially the faculty.

Endowment provided nearly $120 million to KU in 2013

It's never enough is it? We could give KU $100 Billion and they'd still raise tuition 7.3%.

What does the Affordable Care Act mean for you?

Since this is so good I'm looking forward to Obama Auto, Home, and Life Insurance.

Seriously. Think about it. We're giving everyone medical coverage. Why not help them out and pay for all forms of insurance? Between that and Welfare we'd have the richest and most well-provided for bums on the planet.

Surely the rich people who make more than $50,000 a year can give up more money in order to provide their neighbors with the same comforts they've earned. Why should someone pay for their car insurance? If we can get that covered then they could drive to the welfare office instead of walking!

Then, once we have the insurance in place, we can buy them all cars!

This is a GREAT idea! Who's with me?!?! Very excited - all we have to do is pool our money together and give it to other people! There is no limit to the amount of dollars in the pockets of the fat-cats who make over $50,000 a year! BOTTOMLESS PIT OF MONEY!!!!

What does the Affordable Care Act mean for you?

It's not that you're paying into the pool, it's how much you're paying that matters. If I have to pay more because I am forced to participate then I'm not happy about that. If you're excited about someone else taking money out of your pocket then good on you. That doesn't really appeal to me.

So I guess ultimately I want to know how much of my income is 'enough' to make everyone else happy? 80 percent? 90? I lose 50+ percent on taxes right now. I would like the Liberals to just tell me when they'll stop taking my money and re-distributing it. Give me a goal. Strangely, I can't get one of them to answer that query.

Bicylist injured after colliding with vehicle on East 23rd Street

The problem is that cyclists want - no they DEMAND - to be treated like any other vehicle on the road, yet they consistently ignore traffic laws. I cannot count the number of times I've seen cyclists simply run a stop sign.

Want to be on the road? Follow the same rules you do when you're driving. Otherwise you only have yourself to blame if you end up getting hurt.
