Kansas revenue projections for next year contributing to even bigger budget hole

Imagine that: cut taxes, do not create more jobs, and state revenues drop. Who could have guessed?

Opinion: Unusual presidential race is shaping up

Interesting. Who have you in mind who has "actual accomplishments" that lead to the betterment of the country?

As an aside, I have no faith in the Clinton candidacy. I have grave doubts about her ability to ride herd on domestic policy. Hope that opinion doesn't make me pathetic, too, Kevin.

Letter: Ill-informed point

Meaning, Scott, that you will attribute any scientific studies to the same file to which most of us have delegated the flat earth theory. Got it.

Opinion: Unusual presidential race is shaping up

What a pathetic, shallow man you seem, Kevin, when you resort to personal attack on someone who is simply pointing out an opinion. I feel really, really sorry for you.

Kansas State Board of Education to vote on allowing 'innovative' districts to hire unlicensed teachers

Kevin, how do you do it? You see the provable statement, call it something like "utter nonsense", see the legitimacy of the statement, and find some stupid point to refute. Any reputable, non Bill O'Reily debater will acknowledge the truth of a point he can not win and go on to something else. Your reading comprehension, not mine or anyone else's, is in question here.

Give this a chance: read a statement and understand the writer's/speaker's point, then argue the basic point rather than splitting hairs. You're an intelligent man, so show your intelligence rather than your intransigence. You'll find more people will listen to you.

As one might suspect from a comment of yours, there is "a lot" more to this quote than you cited. Following is the full context of Mr. Shanker's statement, including, but not limited to, the actual statement and its background.

Read 'em and weep, Kevin. My reading comprehension includes actual research into the full meaning of things, unlike yours.

School district may increase property taxes to offset expected state funding cuts

Which has nothing to do with the story, Kevin. I might paraphrase, however: "Being a local tea party blogger means you don't have to discuss things rationally."

School district may increase property taxes to offset expected state funding cuts

Wrong. That was a cogent mass of experiential projecting. Mr. Trabert acts just as Mr. Howlette points out. There is nothing in his comment that has not come to pass several times and on differing subjects. The confusion is yours in blindly following the tea party, faux-libertarian line that Trabert parrots each time he posts and that you eat up willingly.

How many, Kevin? How many teachers should be charged with malpractice?

Kansas State Board of Education to vote on allowing 'innovative' districts to hire unlicensed teachers

Wrong. You replied to someone who gave an opinion based on prior experience and widely known knowledge. You replied with nothing but, well, nothing. The burden of proof has been met, the burden of responding is on you to either prove he is wrong or that you have better knowledge. "Utter nonsense" refers, in this case, to your reply.
