Republican tax plans would increase state revenue, analyses say

Chootspa - I just want to thank you for taking the tool to school whenever Dave Trabert brings his bilge to this forum. With all that tax-free money, you'd think the Kochs could buy a better errand boy.

Sorry Dave - you have the credibility and get the respect here you deserve. N-O-N-E. And if karma is real, you're in for a rough road ahead. Keep trying though. You might eventually succeed in pushing one of those camels through a needle.

$1.2 million from longtime Lawrence couple's estate will go to KU

Those who can, do -- like the wonderful couple in this article. Those who Can't, whine, squeal and blame, and wonder why they're falling ever further behind. Why are you such a whiner, Can't?

Democrats propose initiatives, criticize bills opposed by unions

"Republicans please continue to cut taxes and spending because smaller government is the key to economic prosperity!"

Somehow, RC, I do not think you will benefit from the R's "tax cuts" in the great state of Kansas. But at least you can brag that _your_ team won, even as _your_ aggregate tax bill goes up up up. (Too bad, so sad.)

And, since politics is all about cheerleading, trash talk and "winning" for you, please remind us of how your team did in the last national election. "Romney by a landslide!" you said (over and over and over and over and over and over again.) And now you predict prosperity in Kansas. Lord help us.

Statehouse Live: Bill would require KU to play Wichita State University in basketball

O'Donnel should write a law that Bruce Springsteen has to play a concert at Sandstone Amphitheater every year. That would be awesome because I've never seen Springsteen live. And it would bring in more money to the state coffers than another bball game. This legislating thing is fun!!!

KDOT seeks input from bicyclists to update state plan

I'm okay with licensing bicycles -- I remember bicycle licensing back when I was kid. They really need to figure out a way to make automobile drivers pay all the costs of the infrastructure they use too -- and the pollution, environmental damage and public health costs they cause. If that were the case driving would be much more expensive and there would be a lot more bicycle riders for sure!

Brownback, KU officials hope to draw on free-state history to fight modern-day slavery

United States federal law

"Misprision of felony" is still an offense under United States federal law after being codified in 1909 under 18 U.S.C. ยง 4:

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This offense, however, requires active concealment of a known felony rather than merely failing to report it.

Opinion: Freedom to be left alone

As a equally-well researched counter argument to Uncle Jerry (not a slam, just an acknowldegement that neither of us have shown evidence to support our theories), perhaps a convicted robber would choose to rob a place he/she knows has guns, in the hopes of stealing them. Stolen guns are very popular and easy to peddle amongst convicted felons, who cannot buy legally.
