Opinion: Time to halt the entitlement state

I never claimed there was no child support liability. I simply said they did it to avoid paying child support. And, we do not live in Michigan. You are right that any tax refund is taken to help reduce the child support debt. However, none of the people I know are paying any tax or receiving any refund. They are not employed!

Opinion: Time to halt the entitlement state

All the ones I know used mental health reasons such as anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and I even know one who pretended he couldn't read so as to be considered low IQ. They got an attorney who specializes in disability as well. The attorney works for a cut of the initial payout which could be sizeable since it takes so long for the process to work. It is very sad. One of them makes more money per month than I do and I make an excellent salary in the MidWest for a woman. Then I still have to pay 35%+ in taxes so they can enjoy themselves while I work. It is disheartening and it is wrong.

Opinion: Time to halt the entitlement state

I happen to know of several people who wanted to be disabled and were. Several of them were men trying to elude paying child support. You see, you don't have to pay any if you are disabled. Then there is one who just didn't want to work anymore and could find no other way to draw his retirement early. Now he sits home and does whatever he wants while I work 40 hours + per week. Then there are the numerous people who use drug addiction or alcoholism as a reason to draw disability. This leaves them free to indulge in their habits without the constraints of a job. It takes time to get disability but it isn't that difficult. Also, people who haven't worked cannot draw SSD, that is true....however, they can easily draw a check from SSI disability.

Student plans to file complaint after being confronted by Eudora police

I USED to live in Eudora until my son (who is bi racial) visited for the week end. He borrowed my car (with my permission) to go less than two blocks to the convenience store and was stopped by police, harrassed and frisked. We now live in Lawrence again. Don't miss the profiling!

Boy, 12, kills man who was attacking his mother

I agree, give the kid a medal and some therapy if needed, and let's all hope our children love us as much.

Pregnant woman tortured to death

Did the neighbors not feel an ethical or moral obligation to have this situation investigated, what about the landlord? How very, very sad.
