Change doesn't come until you start talking about it.

One thing about Kaepernick; it's engendered more conversation about racism and white privilege than I've seen in a long time. This is a good thing.

And? Close to 90% of white murder is white on white crime. Big deal.

You're sorta, kinda half right, Bob. Nate Boyer was the one who influenced Kaepernick to go from sitting during the anthem to kneeling. This is a direct quote from Boyer about it. <br>
"We sorta came to a middle ground where he would take a knee alongside his teammates," Boyer says. "Soldiers take a knee in front of a fallen brother's grave, you know, to show respect. When we're on a patrol, you know, and we go into a security halt, we take a knee, and we pull security."<br>
This is not "submission", it's respect for fallen brothers. But go ahead, keep pounding "liberals" over it. Your cluelessness and inability to accept anything else is all on you.

Welcome to the GOP (grumpy old people) cheering section. You're in fine fettle this morning.<br> No, Justin, the majority of the American people don't find it disrespectful. Please try to find your information somewhere other than Fox "News" or Breitbart. Polls are actually running about 50/50 but it doesn't make any difference because it's a 1A right that was determined by SCOTUS a long time ago.<br>
Bob (Summers), kneeling as an act of protest is something that dates back to the '60s and the civil rights movement. It's not "being humble", it's being forced to be humbled by white <br>conservatives.<br>
Bob (Smith), your Godwin is showing. Go hang out at Stormfront where you belong.

Letter to the editor: Health care help

I'd like to add that the decision was also made by HHS to bring down for "maintenance" almost every Sunday during the enrollment period. This will cut a further 6-7 days from the 45 days people will be able to enroll. I honestly believe these people sit around and dream up ways they can kill us.

A witch-themed store opens in eastern Lawrence to serve a growing pagan population

Wicca isn't the ONLY pagan religion Kerry caters to. I'm sure if you look hard enough at her shop, you will find a colander or two. :P

Kansas Supreme Court blocks state prosecution of undocumented immigrants

The minute I saw this, my eyebrows went up. The state did the correct and LEGAL thing, as much as some may hate it.

Kansas lawmaker says he would rather give money to North Korea than to public radio

Sounds like a sTrumpet to me.

Tyson Foods to build $320M chicken operation near Tonganoxie; plans to employ 1,600

I lived in NW Arkansas and there are chicken plants all over down there<br>
And, although Tyson makes up a good portion of them, there are others such as OK Foods.
Here's a clue to what they are like. The vast bulk of their employees are immigrants; some of them legal, but a lot of them not. Take a look at the Tyson plant in Garden City. You'll find the same thing. <br>
Good luck, Tongie. You're going to need it.
