Brownback's office redacts names of Court of Appeals candidates from his schedule

this is not a matter of applying for a mere public job - this is a situation of applying to become an elected official of the state.

Oh, Mr. Hawk, you know how it is - stupid is as stupid does. . .

U.S. Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage could affect Kansas

I don’t know about this Huelskamp fellow, but it appears that he has little or no grasp of U.S. history when he states that the Supreme Court’s decision on DOMA matter was a “radical usurpation of legislative and popular authority.” I can only assume that he, a man occupying a high position in government, has no concept of the history of the government he is involved in. I can only assume that he has absolutely no acquaintance with the landmark decision of Marbury v. Madison that has been the law of the land since 1803. 210 years of history has apparently completely bypassed him. What a shame. The concepts of “vapid” and “turbid”come to mind.

Brownback proposes using bioscience funds to pay for adult stem cell center at KU

I propose that we work to merge the Kansas Turnpike Authority/DOT with the Kansas Bioscience Authority in order to pave the way for a more fluid flow of money to the chosen few of the state. Who cares what the money was first intended for. It’s the church of the here and now that is calling.

Senate advances cut to Earned Income Tax Credit to help homestead property tax refund program

Remember the Secretary of State’s “self deportation” campaign for illegals. I hate to say it, but it seems as though the leadership of the Kansas legislature and the entire administrative branch of the government of the state has now adopted the theory of “self deportation” as their driving force in all things Kansas. Want to seriously reduce any social or medical care spending? Just make is extremely difficult for anyone in need to live in Kansas. Just run them out as soon as possible. Kind of a sorry state of affairs, so to speak.

KU student pushing for smoking ban on campus

Was once a heavy smoker but got tired of the hassle and the expense. In any event, I am just wondering who would run a 2 liter engine at 2000 rpm for only one minute? When such comparisons are made are we talking about theoretical results or reality?

House committee approves bill that supporters say will protect Kansas gun rights

Arresting Federal Law Enforcement Officers? A prelude to insurrection? Just wondering.

KBI arrests Franklin County sheriff and deputy on obstruction of justice charges

I suspect the two were arrested when they were both wearing their uniforms. And cops taking the picture still being cops, did not want to “disgrace the uniform” with a mug shot. Go figure.

Statehouse Live: Fight over taxpayer-financed lobbying ensues

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

"The people have the right to assemble, in a peaceable manner, to consult for their common good, to instruct their representatives, and to petition the government, or any department thereof, for redress of grievances."

Does anyone in Topeka have any idea where these "radical" statements are written. . . Just wondering. . .

Statehouse Live: Bill would require KU to play Wichita State University in basketball

Just as I suspected. The clowns in the legislature have absolutely nothing to do. Nobody has sent them their program for the week, apparently. They ought to be ashamed to cash their pay checks.
