Opinion: GOP should change ACA strategy

'' The utter and heartbreaking stupidity of words '' - William Faulkner.

George Will is a shill for people who care nothing about you or I. There are are times when you think he might figure this out. But it is not to be.

City to craft statement saying it doesn't have plans to use drones

KU journalism professor Guth placed on leave as school reviews comment he made on Twitter on shootings

I am licensed to carry a gun. I am very glad about that but I don't need to carry my gun except in specific situations. In those situations I don't want to go to prison because some crazy left wing politician passes what I consider a stupid law.

That being said, I believe this country is only as great as the principals that we live by. Those principals, in my opinion, say that Mr. Guth is only guilty of being angry because people were senselessly murdered. The NRA seems to be in the pocket of people who care nothing about average Americans. They have understood that too many of us are very naivete and can be eadily manipulated. They are hiding behind the veneer of patriotism and freedom.

By their actions they are showing that they are about money and political power. They are not concerned about preventing gun violence. That is how I read it.

Guth is just a man who cares. Like his methods or not. I like a man who has a heart.

These politicians in Topeka do what they are told. They think they are Americans but when I look at them that is not what I ser.

These people in Kansas who brag about being defenders of the constitution are showing us a glimpse of the future when our lives will be monitored by "thought patrol" police and our children will be subject not only to a curriculum of Math and Science but indoctrination by the dominant political party.

Freedom will be redefined to mean whatever serves their purpose. Freedom is only what you think it is. You can lose it and not even know it.

If Guth would have criticized abortion instead of the NRA, he would be a hero. His mistake was poking the bullies in Topeka.

This is just more Glenn Beck type stuff.

I go to night classes and the last 3 semesters I can tell you that I had at least one Professor each semester who had a CCL and we lamented that we were not able to carry our guns to class. And these guys were definitely not liberals.

Sorry to challenge your world view.

Editorial: Questions, answers

One day to cover 81 questions?

6 days to do this at 6 schools?

It sounds like they are using Genesis to plan their re-creation of Kansas education.

We shall see if the optimism of this editorial does not turn to extreme disappointment. I don't believe you can cover 81 questions adequately in one day.

Saturday Column: Benghazi questions undermine Obama’s credibility

If you want to read about crooks in government read this.

The tragedy of Benghazi has been surpassed by the tragedy of the right wing's attempt to use these deaths for political advantage.

Tolerance of different points of view as well as exposure to those views should be part of an elite education.

I am sure I would not agree with Guth on a lot of things but I am not afraid of him teaching my children. I wish I could take his class.

I am afraid of those who want to censure free speech because it goes against their political beliefs while preaching how they are defenders of freedom. There is nothing uglier than sinners pretending righteousness.

If Guth handles this right, he will win in the end. I just hope the people of Kansas see the real character of our Kansas government for what it is.

KU journalism professor Guth placed on leave as school reviews comment he made on Twitter on shootings

Most gun owners including concealed carry license holders, want improved gun safety and enforcement of laws that are currently on the books. Most gun owners do not agree with the liberal extremists but they don't agree with the right wing extremists either. We know that we can do a much better job of keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill or criminals but there is not enough cooperation among different political parties over these issues.

Why is that?

Ideologues are clogging up the lines of communication like zebra mussels because we keep electing these kind of people to congress. Kansas is suffering because of these kind of people in our government.

When I walk into a gun story, oftentimes I see a caricature of Obama drawn in an insulting manner and meant to be humorous. I often have to endure a stupid political comment or two before I leave the establishment and I often get quoted a rediculously stupid comment that someone heard on conservative talk radio, sources that are designed for propaganda, not truthfulness.

I too worry about liberals criminalizing law abiding citizens, but is it not just as dangerous to our freedoms to allow ourselves to be used by right wing ideologues? In my view, they are both bad and the anti-government, Obama hating culture they promote is insane. Someone has to say enough is enough and that is going to have to be the majority of gun owners who happen to be moderate regarding gun control issues.

We need moderates in our government again and we need to fight back against political lobbyists and secretive political organizations that are designing the bills our legislators are pushing into law. These people are not working for us. They are just lying to us.

Does the NRA work for gun owners or gun manufacturers?

"Today's NRA is a virtual subsidiary of the gun industry," said Josh Sugarmann, executive director of the Violence Policy Center. "While the NRA portrays itself as protecting the 'freedom' of individual gun owners, it's actually working to protect the freedom of the gun industry to manufacture and sell virtually any weapon or accessory."

It is time to push back against the NRA leadership and take a good hard look at this organization.

Have they become corrupted by money? It is time to question what is going on with these people.
