Most suspended Kansas voters claim no party

Sam Crow -- do the math. According to the Secretary of State's Office as of the end of July, 2014, there were 1,735,395 registered voters in Kansas. Republicans represent 44% of the total voters yet only 22% of those have registration difficulties. Democrats account for 24% of total voters yet are 18% of those with registration difficulties. Libertarians are .007% of total voters and .017% of those who have registration difficulties. Unaffiliated are 31% of the total voters and 57% of those who have registration problems. If everything were equal, Republicans would have twice as many individuals unable to vote in the upcoming election.

Protesters demonstrate in front of Lawrence Hobby Lobby over company's stance on birth control

My private life is mine. If you offer a benefit to one employee, you must offer it to other employees. It isn't my boss' or my bosses' business what medications I take under an insurance plan. And if my boss is going to pay for Viagra, then I should, if needed, be receiving birth control. Also, a happy employee is a more productive employee. Why can't the boss or bosses figure that out and offer good benefits.

Protesters demonstrate in front of Lawrence Hobby Lobby over company's stance on birth control

I'm "so" glad there are people who love Hobby Lobby. Corporations are so snuggly and need so much compassion as they risk losing a dollar or two. Did the nurse realize, as she assailed women who wish to use birth control, that this corporation is willing to pay for men to play. Yes, ma'am, Viagra is paid for by Hobby Lobby -- so it is just one side of the equation that is paying to play, as usual.

Statehouse Live: State agriculture secretary calls for repeal of laws restricting corporate farms

Attorney General Schmidt wrote a letter rather than issuing an opinion largely due to a previous opinion issued in 1983 by then A.G. Robert T. Stephen. The opinion dealt with K.S.A. 17-5904 which regulates the ownership by corporations of agricultural land in Kansas. No problem at that time with the constitution.

Town Talk: Lawrence home sales for first half of year up nearly 11 percent; Americans for Prosperity rep. urges City Commission to dump sustainability posts

To Mullins: Where were you when a foreign corporation condemned Kansans' properties, including some of the best farmland in the state, from the Nebraska border south to Oklahoma so tar sands oil could flow south to Houston and on to China? Where were you and AFP when private property including homes were condemned by the government and then transferred to private business to build the Legends complex in Wyandotte County? I certainly didn't hear any protest by AFP or their founders when those condemnations of private property occurred.

Brownback voices disapproval of Obama rule on contraceptives

Hospitals, whether run by a non-profit, profit or charitable institution, are in the business of making money. Religious-owned hospitals do not hire just those who have taken the vows of their religion but hire whomever they can find to fill the positions so that they may keep their doors open and continue to make money. Brownback's statement that women should quit their jobs and go work for another business is arrogant, sexist and, dare I say it, Taliban-like.

Speaker O'Neal apologizes for forwarding email that calls Michelle Obama "Mrs. YoMama"

I think the waste of taxpayers' money is paying the salary of the communications director who provides lame excuses for the other waste of taxpayers' money, Speaker O'Neal.

Kansas Congressional delegation dismayed at supercommittee's inability to reach agreement

The super-committee is a reflection of the larger group. Why should the super-committee be held responsible when they merely reflect the problems of the larger group?

State Rep. Anthony Brown criticizes Lawrence, KU

Rep. Brown -- 1. Clean the log out of your own eye before you attempt to clean the log out of your neighbor's eye. 2. It is the height of poor manners to accept hospitality with one hand and slap your host with the other. 3. Bullies can be of any age and can even be a political party. The abilities to welcome all thoughts and to look for the good in all are the hallmarks of a true statesman; apparently you have yet to achieve those abilities.

Statehouse Live: Kobach criticized for taking Nebraska job

Mr. Kobach doesn't get it. If he is Secretary of State, there is no free time. He isn't applying for an 8-5 job. He can't have two masters.
