Capitol Report: Drug testing for state benefits; Landwehr lands state job; Brownback changes tune on EITC

The right is terrified that there might be someone somewhere getting government assistance that doesn't deserve it, and they will spare no expense to find them and kick them out.

Man charged with aggravated assault in pistol-whipping at pool hall

Someone must have used the word "Shenanigans" too many times.

KU fraternity suspended by national organization in wake of animal cruelty allegations

You know, I chase my dogs & cats all the time, but never so much that I had to kill them to "end their suffering." And yes, I have seen how food animals are treated. They also aren't tortured to death, and when animal cruelty is found on the farm the farmers get arrested too.

KU fraternity suspended by national organization in wake of animal cruelty allegations

That implies that every year they abuse a live turkey as party entertainment. And that makes it better how?

‘Obamacare’ likely to be battle cry for conservatives

I dunno. "Remember the Alamo!" I think is still a more effective battle cry. I can't imagine anyone charging the enemy while yelling "Obamacare!"

As good as billed: QB Dayne Crist living up to lofty expectations

A good quarterback is nothing without a good offensive line protecting him. Our lack of a strong OL was one of our main weaknesses last season. I haven't seen any reports of that problem being addressed yet, unless I missed them.

Legislator upset that $85M contract for health reform accepted

Since when does one state get to decide if it follows federal law or not? Since Socialism & birth certificate, that's when! : p

Governor-elect Brownback says he's seeking bold action on tax reductions, will protect education funding

The problem with "cutting the fat, fraud, waste and abuse" is that we've been doing that as a nation since the first Bush administration, on both the state and federal levels. That's why NASA keeps scrapping projects, why cases of Medicare fraud are few and far between, why the Public Defender's office is overburdened so much some are now refusing new cases, and why the schools of the state banded together and sued Topeka to get the funding they were supposed to have. The only fat, fraud, waste and abuse that's left is in the Defense budget (2 different types of engine for a plane that only needs one, ordering more high ticket items that the Pentagon doesn't want or need and puts into deep storage upon delivery, researching dead end weapons technologies that are based on a fundamentally flawed understanding of physics), but no one dares to even cut what the Pentagon says they don't want!

What actually would stimulate the local economy is targeted long term incentives in areas that need it. Tax rebates for property owners of all types to make their buildings more energy efficient. Investments to strengthen and secure our aging power grid. Beautification projects to draw new businesses & shoppers to areas with empty storefronts. That would make sense.

What I fail to see would help the economy, though, is a $200 reduction of my state income tax that I only pay one time a year. Wooo.

Do you support the building of a mosque and Islamic cultural center a few blocks from the site of ground zero in New York City?

You're right. The US Military in an effort to spread democracy and freedom to the region and win the hearts and minds of a downtrodden populace merely tortured people at Abu Ghraib. And thank God for that! If they had actually beheaded someone, then we would have been hypocrites! Good thing we stopped at torture! That really helped our cause!
