Davis loses ground to Brownback in Kansas governor's race

I'm really tired of poll surveys. I quit answering their phone calls. There are probably others hanging up, too. Sampling will be off. Survey results will be off. Poll results from here on out are invalid. Now, we should just vote and wait.

P.S. I'm also throwing out all the oversized glossy postcards and brochures stuffed in our mailbox everyday without reading them. Campaign strategists take note. Blitzes are irritating.

""There is bipartisan recognition in Washington that entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid present an unsustainable unfunded liability," Crum said. "The idea that programs funded by the federal government are free has contributed to our $18 trillion federal debt.""

Fixes for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are not complicated. The politics are complicated. If there is any bipartisan recognition that these programs are unsustainable, it must have been among delegates who cannot comprehend the math. By the way, only Medicaid is an entitlement program. The largest creditors to the U.S. Government are Social Security and Medicare, not China.

Governor backs Kansas high court justices' ouster

Doesn't the Kansas constitution state that the government is split into three independent parts - administrative, judicial , and legislative branches? It looks to me like the administrative branch (Brownback) wants total control.

Brownback cites Wichita murder case in last debate with Davis

The Republican Party principles more closely match the Te Party's. The Tea Party would not be heard if it was on its own.

p.s. I don't know that I would think Tea Party and Libertarian in the same breath. The Libertarians have a longer history and their own principles. I agree with Libertarian positions occasionally. they are not as invasive as Tea Party positions.

Reduced parking plan for apartments may have uphill battle; nearly 80 percent of rental inspections finding violations; a powerful video about a Lawrence fire

Rental inspections were only in neighborhoods zoned single family. The new ordinance covers the whole city.

You misinterpreted Riordan's statement. He was not criticizing students for not riding the bus. He was saying that students will drive rather than take the bus. Consequently, students will have vehicles. Students probably do not use the bus, because the trips take a long time,as you said. Riordan is leaning towards supporting the parking requirement for the apartment development as is.
