Lawmakers call on Brownback to make cuts before session

Aren't we lucky to have the wisdom of a troll like Bob Summers. We should all just blindly follow his advice, but his intelligent and wise advise runs into this thing called arithmetic. His facile solution is to get rid of "They". Assuming "They" are the Governor, the Legislature and the Judiciary, we will follow the wise advice to troll Summers and cut them all to zero, nada, zip and zilch. Now, stand by for the wit and wisdom of the great Bob Summers as he tells us what other cuts to make balance the budget. After all, he is only $187,013,429 short. :-)

A reply from The Troll will refer to the "liberal condition." He just hates arithmetic.

New poll shows Trump up by 24 in Kansas; judicial retention races may be close

A flash survey is a short survey that rather than contacting a person for that person's opinion, permits the person to contact the surveyor. There is no information as to location of the 346 likely voters who contacted Ft. Hays and participated in a survey. A typical flash survey is done online. Just take their word they were registered Kansas voters, because everything you read on the internet is true.

Kansas taxes nearly $13M less than anticipated in October

The blaming of ag and energy makes no sense. Having eliminated tax obligations to 330,000 sole proprietorships, partnerships, S-Corps, LLP et al., the governor blames ag and energy for not producing expected revenues. Why should he expect ag and energy, which is made up of many sole proprietorships, partnerships, S-Corps, LLP et al., to produce tax revenue?

This does not pass the Spock test. Illogical

Kobach files answer after court enters default judgment in Kansas voting rights case

Don't get your hopes up that the default judgment will stand. All KKK has to do is show "good cause" which is a liberal and mutable standard. He will have to show mistake, inadvertence, surprise, excusable neglect, newly discovered evidence, fraud, judgment is void, OR judgment is satisfied AND some other reason to set aside a default judgment. Vacation or calendaring errors could be acceptable other reasons.. If it is a close call, the court should err and permit his late answer to stand and order the judgment to be set aside.

Kobach defends voting laws in light of primary results; also defends acting as Trump surrogate

Dear Mr. Kobach,

As a Harvard educated lawyer, you should realize that coincidences do not equal consequences. Your argument fails. Harvard wants it diploma back.

Several Douglas County residents face criminal damage charges after police say they shot at mailboxes and road signs

The mailboxes are instrumentalities of the United States Postal Service and are used in interstate commerce. This gets you to federal jurisdiction. Got to give congratulations to these geniuses.
