Campuswide tobacco ban at KU pushed back a year

Big Brother.....

taking individual freedom away one step at a time! We must control the "air space" around each individual and for as far away from them as we possibly can! Better watch out! All of those nasty old smokers may quit and then they will have to start taxing something you like to use!

Opinion: GOP should focus on late-term abortion

Renee.....What other word would be better to use to describe a person who uses scissors to cut the neck of a born baby, in order to sever it's spinal cord?

Incoming KU student faces deportation after arrest

"His mom was a school teacher in Mexico, and his dad was only one year from a degree in engineering, but they came to the U.S. looking for a cure for their son."

My parents came here just for me,” he said. “My dad tells me, ‘I’d rather risk coming here than risk losing you.’”

"Within a week, he was diagnosed with easily treatable lactose intolerance"
OK. I understand why the kid wants to stay here. He's been here all of his life. But, read this again. Within a week, dianosed with an EASILY treatable lactose intolerance. So, why did they not get him treated and go back home? Why have they stayed another ninteen years? One, a school teacher and the other, one year away from an Engineering degree? Could she come over here and teach? Could the father finish his one year of school and get his degree here? No! Why not go back home and keep teaching and let the father get the degree, then, if they had still wanted to immigrate, they could have applied for US citizenship while they were working and finishing school. A teacher and an engineer would probably do Mexico a lot more good in getting their country back in order than coming here illegally, and working at what? If they came here legally, they could probably put those skills to work here also.
Sorry kid, you need to go back to Mexico, apply for citizenship, and take your illegal parents with you!

Census may boost Hispanic political clout

Broder says, "By staying uncounted, Hispanics reduce the flow of government funds to their cities and states, and even deny themselves representation in Congress and the legislatures."

I know I am late in posting but it sounds to me like Broder is talking about the "Illegal" people that do not want to be counted. Why would the "legal" people have a problem being counted? And since when should we "increase the flow of government funds" if it is because of an increase in the count of "illegal" persons? And denying them representation in Congress? I still thought "illegal" meant Not Legal", as in Against the Law.
The only representation an "illegal" should have is the attorney that represents them when they go to court to get deported. And they need to pay for the attorney, not us taxpayers.
Come into the country legally and most will welcome you with open arms, come illegally and there is only one direction that you need to go....Back!
