Kansas delegation holds position of making government funding contingent on delaying Obamacare

It takes two to tango. Everyone who is blaming the other side 100% are just lying to themselves. Both sides are to blame and anyone who says otherwise is just in denial.

Lawrence man, among the few ticketed for Fourth of July fireworks, awaits his day in court

This is not the American Revolution, it is not a case of race segregation, it is not an equal rights march. This is one guy, who doesn't like a law and decided he was not going to obey it. Not every act of civil disobedience is a good thing. The law is a good law for public safety and the common good of the community. There are people who believe every law is an affront to their personal freedom. I believe that is called anarchy.

Opinion: Free expression bypasses abortion issue

By all means lets criticize a well known and accomplished author for the way he writes instead of admitting that the questions he asks and the points he makes are valid.

Mailers on Kansas tax cuts go out ahead of election

I have no comment about this brochure, but I do take exception to a number of comments about all republicans as Liars, Cheaters, and no good people.....

I am a republican. I own my own business. I treat my employees well. I pay for 50% of a good health insurance plan for them. In the past 5 years, I have had employees who had cancer and were unable to work for more than 6 months each, and I paid them their full wage the entire time that they were off. I currently have an employee who is off waiting to have surgery and I am paying their full wages even though they are unable to work. I have loaned my employees thousands of dollars, not charging them any interest and allowing them to take several years to pay back what they have borrowed. I donate my services to mutliple schools and organizations not out of my excess, but out of my desire to help. I'm not perfect, but I am not a cheater, liar or a no good person.

Flag abuse

Considering the wide disparity of reasons that people think it is good or bad to drape the flag over one's shoulders, I can see that there are many sides and points of view on this. Personally it doesn't bother me, but I can see how some people think more reverently of the flag. I suppose if I had lost a loved one who was fighting for ourcountry I would be more sensitive to the one icon that calls back my memories of that loss. Personally, I am just grateful for anyone who is patriotic and loves our country enough to be proud of who they are and where they are from. I am grateful to be an American, I know that I have enjoyed many privileges by virtue of being a citizen of this great land.

Nomadic churches searching for permanent home

I hope Eastlake and these other "non-traditional" Churches find the space that they need. They are obviously filling a spiritual need for many people in our town. Although I attend a traditional and permanent Church building, I'm grateful for anyone who can help others both physically and spiritually.

I have also had the pleasant experience of working with Matt Cox and his staff over the past few years on a professional business level and they are good people with honest intentions. I wish them all the best.

Signed, God
