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

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?

What is your opinion on the city’s proposal to raise water and sewage rates by 4 percent?

Raising our water and sewage rates would be absolutely insane! Better to fire the incompetent bumpkins who can't manage a system with what is the highest water rates in any city I've ever lived or heard about. I have an apartment in the city where I work and their rates are 1/7th what Lawrence charges. I've already demanded to see my share of the gold they must be putting in our water. Perhaps I should claim I'm not receiving my share of the diamonds either.

Evolution returns

Like all religious writings, God didn't write the Bible, he didn't write the Torah, and he didn't write the Quran. Men wrote these books, claiming that God was speaking through them. Do you think there's just the slightest possibility that these men might have slipped some of their own thoughts into what God was telling them? Even today, our world's major religions continue to hide such startling discoveries such as the sun doesn't spin around the Earth, our planet is not the center of the universe, creatures no religious book describes were roaming our planet millions of years before these books tell us that God created it; and yes, while God may have created man, he didn't do it with a wave of his magic wand.

An all-powerful God has less reason to demand the obedience of us mortals to these teachings than men who think themselves powerful.

Kansas prepping for another evolution debate

How completely embarrassing! These people have made us the joke of the entire country. Why in the world would any literate country base its scientific teachings on religious dogma? May as well start teaching them Islam too and forcing the girls wear burkas.

Brownback signs bill blocking use of Islamic law

And a liberal radical like you will, of course, provide our rational thought for us.
