Your Turn: Students defend information request

The university is strangely silent. At the very least I would expect a clarification on its policies regarding university email accounts.

Jenkins hears about immigration, budget at Lawrence town hall meeting

"We have to fix the illegal and the legal immigration system and let the market bear the price," Jenkins said.

The House could vote on the bill that passed the Senate in overwhelming bipartisan fashion - 18 months ago. The President has been begging Congress to vote on it. The Congresswoman knows this.

Should the federal government require healthier school lunches?

When I was in public school, lunch ladies cooked nutritious meals from scratch every day - all the courses including desserts. The food was just like mom made it at home and it was cheap. Why can't we afford to do this for our school kids today?

Did Jenkins cite in the Constitution where taxpayers have to bail out banks? Just kidding of course.

Jenkins hears about immigration, budget at Lawrence town hall meeting

How does it nullify a law? Congress funds the deportation of 400,000 immigrants a year and this administration has deported 100% of those. Since 11 million are here and only 400,000 can be deported annually, the President - using the authority of the executive branch to ENFORCE the law that Congress made - has prosecutorial discretion to decide who gets deported first. Wisely, over the past few years the President has chosen to focus on deporting people who broke the law after they arrived in the U.S. The executive action only moves parents of legal children to the back of the deportation line, and only for three years, and only if they apply, pay the fee, and pass a background check - and allows them to work legally so they can provide for those legal children.

Rest assured, 400,000 people a year are still getting the boot. I'm happy if the President boots out felons before the parents of legal children.

"Nowhere in the Constitution does it say the federal government is going to tell school children what to eat," Jenkins said.

This statement as a response to the question asked is a logical fallacy.

It's bad enough that a Congressman used a logical fallacy to defend her actions. (That's dishonest and it shows how much disdain she has for her constituents.) It's even worse that an audience applauded her logical fallacy instead of calling her out on it.

In the middle of a work day for most, and as far away from the center of town as possible.

Torture report says little on Pat Roberts' role

Why then did the architects of torture have to hide what they were doing from the public, so soon after 9/11?
