Kansas teachers' collective bargaining plan might not satisfy lawmakers

Of course it won't be acceptable. After all, it was put together to maintain a bit of teacher confidence in their jobs, and by a group trying its best to maintain quality of education, and without the input of the legislature.

How could that possibly be acceptable to the legislature?

Kobach pushing bills to limit ballot withdrawals and to allow straight-party voting

It should. Your brand of politics is best called "reactionary" as it has little to do with politics and nearly all to do with being against something than being for something.

Is there nothing this guy can do that will alienate his voter base?

With looming cash crisis, GOP leaders see need to fix Kansas budget quickly

So, tell me, Marc, how many folks in Kansas have the money to buy Apple? How can the people who are working for min wage, can not afford to live healthy lives, who pay a higher amount of their income in taxes than do their bosses, who are striving to hold on to a standard of living in which they do not have to go without, how many of those people, Marc, can afford to buy Stock of any kind?

Your elitist attitude, your refusal to see or acknowledge basic economic reality is the kind of thing that makes this state what it is today: STUPID!

And you don't even care, do you? You've got yours, and to hell with the rest.

Apparently you pick and choose the posts to which you respond. If you care to face facts, there are probably more "liberals" decrying the wisdom of voting, again, for Brownknch than reactionaries boasting "we won, get over it". I don't believe that any of "us" are unaware of the debacle that the majority of those who voted for him and his returned us to. I don't believe that any (with a couple of silly exceptions) think the election was stolen.

Perhaps you can come up with a reason that the tyranny of the majority has been a good thing for Kansas. I'd be really surprised if you truly believe Kansas is in better shape because of the recent election. If so, then, in my opinion, you are hiding your head in the sand. If not, then it becomes truly interesting to know why you feel so elated that "your side" won. Because, really, what did you, and the state, win?

Let me know. I'm interested.

Kansas is his hobby, Rick. His real job is writing these unconstitutional, stupid laws for other states that care not at all for law.

Delay this, don't pay that, steal something, but don't get the money where we used to get it.

Sounds like sound fiscal management to me.

But, at least, they're great at social engineering.

Lawrence voters overwhelmingly approve keeping local option budget at 33 percent

Do the math yourself, David. Only a 35% turnout and Brownkoch got a slim majority of that. It's not as big a deal as claimed by you and yours, but it has become a big deal now that the lies, innuendo, and misdirection have come to light. And, yes, David, you can expect your taxes to go up when the legislative puppets realize that their state is in dire financial and educational need.

You got a great mind there.

And what the heck is a Big Whopper? Perhaps that is just about any claim made by your hero, Sam Brownkoch.
