Wind energy projects increasing in Kansas, but they could slow down if federal tax credit changes

Okay, so I read the first comment. Exactly how does 100acres of gas drilling pads "save your resources?" It seems the only thing you do in this articles is "mine" a resource. One is infinite and relatively easy to get with little environmental risk when something fouls up and the other is finite and... well... I'm really thirsty I'm going to go get some clean water and drink it.

Town Talk: Parking by the numbers in downtown; a new boardwalk at the wetlands; center turn lane on Sixth Street on the way

Apparently hitme, you've yet to learn your history further back than 60 years or so. Those areas were wetlands until they were drained by farmers. Hence the name.. wait for it... Baker WETlands.

Republicans not amused at Democrats' jab at Brownback's budget director

The idea makes sense, "don't spend tax $$ on those who can afford it." I'm confused if it is believed that this measure (below) would enable less affluent people to afford college and become, "more affluent." If so, PLEASE explain as I imagine this article is missing some key details.

"The plan also recommended higher tuition at public universities and schools. “There is no reason to tax the majority in the state who do not have children attending a state institution in order to subsidize those who do, especially when there is evidence it is the more affluent citizens who are more likely to have children enrolled in higher education,” the document said."

Statehouse Live: Brownback's budget cuts raise concerns about special education funding

Pffft. Is that ALL he can do? Seriously, let's just close ALL the schools for one calendar year. We save all that money but even better, we could just send all those kids to work. Yes, unskilled jobs are still in demand. So, not only do we save lots and lots of money, but we'll actually be making more money on taxes from the kids! As an added bonus, we'll be able to show the next generation of Kansans what they have to look forward to for the rest of their lives! It's a true, real to life learning scenario. Thanks Sam for the inspiration!

Brownback proposes using highway funds to prop up state budget

So, if we take the highway funds and put them in general government funds, then where does the money for highways come from? Is what we call a "bait and switch?"

Kansas Rep. Forrest Knox plans to push bill to allow concealed carry of guns in public buildings

I guess Vertigo can't read beyond the first line.... "the more guns you have, the higher the chance for gun related incidents. " Think about it....

Kansas Rep. Forrest Knox plans to push bill to allow concealed carry of guns in public buildings

Hey Mr. Knox, it is absolutely impossible to have gun related incidents in areas where guns are absent. Or... the more guns you have, the higher the chance for gun related incidents.
