Analysis: Both sides see mandate, hard road ahead

With the popular vote separated by only 2%, the country is nearly split down the middle with half our citizens believing we're on the right track, and the other half unable to imagine how we're going to survive the next 4 years. The only mandate Americans have voted for is compromise.

Rec center? Try rec park

It was certainly, beyond even the slightest doubt, the liberal voted who voted in the parking garage and the drive-up window for the library.

Rec center? Try rec park

This is obscene! We don't have sufficient funds to keep our schools open or staff them with teachers, but we have funds to build a drive-up window and a parking garage at the library and now this? Lawrence residents are supposed to be so liberal minded, yet they throw their support and their votes behind money-wasting projects such as these while they stand by and watch their schools crumble.

Driving force: Jayhawks wary of OSU RB Joseph Randle

Are you kidding? The Jayhawks are wary of Free State's 3rd string running back...on their freshman team.

Lawrence artist miffed after Topeka restaurant removes Brownback painting

I'm an independent and I have no particular fondness for Brownback, but the disparity between how liberals view their own freedom of expression and how they view others has always shocked me. This painting is as offensive as several of Brownback's actions, but had this painting been of Kathleen Sebelious, the left would have been outraged. It seems liberals are allowed to freely express their feelings, but are infuriated when anyone else does, which really makes them hypocrits to their own cause.

Do you think a male birth control pill would be popular?

I think you should just pay more taxes and go away

Do you think a male birth control pill would be popular?

Ummm, great point I hadn't thought about. Makes perfect sense! Too bad we don't have laws that make the responsibility belong to both of them.

Sick and tired of the waiting game

I don't mean to be callous, but which of our lives wouldn't be better if other taxpayers gave us their money? I get a little tire of reporters using the word "State" as some ubiquitous entity. The State is the taxpayers who live in this state, and right now, I've got so many people and groups with their hands out, the only way I can support them all is to mortgage my house and go on assistance myself. We have to separate "wants" and "nice to haves". From needs.

Report criticizes voter ID law in Kansas, other states

It's understandable why someone from New York would make a report like this. They've been letting the dead vote in New York and Chicago for the past 150 years. And how unfair that we haven't allowed Missourians to vote (multiple times of course) in Kansas since the Civil War. Of course we shouldn't make people prove who they are to vote. We should let them vote 7 or 8 times. We should let dead people vote too. We should let Mexicans, Canadians, Japanese, Botswanians, Russians, French, and Koreans vote as well. After all, it's a free country isn't it? If you can hold a pencil or a stylus, you can vote. If you can't, there will always be some able-bodied liberal showing you where to make your "X". I mean, we should all realize how stupid it is for people to prove who they are when they vote; how would the Democrats get any votes if they did?
