Opinion: Do voters want more Clintonism?

Eileen, No. No more big government politicians who are oh so well connected to the status quo. If conservatives like myself keep voting for big government types we will never get the right of center establishment to chance another Reagan like candidate. No more Dole/Bush/McCain Types at least for the next several election cycles.

Opinion: Informing the conversation

Yes Kevin it is so interesting to see that not only pupil to teacher ratio has declined but in constant 1990 dollars the daily wage has increased nearly 450%. Seems we have far too many education lobbyists and far too few wise and altruistic educators.

Eileen, Wisdom is a great virtue and is the basis of understanding, prudence, justice, patience, and altruistic respect. Wisdom is not bought by dollars or hours spent being attended to by another. Wisdom is taught by wise example and patient love. Wisdom not dollars are needed most.

Opinion: Informing the conversation

We could pray for peace and understanding among races. We could teach that man may not be the measure of all things that we men and women tend on our own to wound, humiliate, denegrate others. We need grace and habits of virtue to overcome our prejudices. How about putting a merciful and loving God back into the conversation?

Opinion: Do voters want more Clintonism?

Eileen, I see the imbalance too. So sad. Why they allow any non leftists to be published is a mystery to me too. Mr. Alinsky has more work to do with the editor of this paper as he lets his guard down from time to time and some right of Lenin zealots get printed here. Where do we line up to march against this tyranny?

Taran, your speech is so hurtfull you make many of us sad to tears. Please stop being so mean and uncaring. I too find Mr. Will unappealing in many of his views and mannerisms but I tend to agree with him about Ms. Hillary. Please don't think me a loon and worse a fool for not thinking the world of Ms. Hilary and the other members of our political elites who love us so much that they want to keep helping us till they die and then want their children and grandchildren to teach us even more about making a village.

Lawrence public education rally shows support for march to Topeka

Public Schools are extremely well funded in Kansas. Private schools, religious schools, are poorly funded as nearly all tax dollars go to public schools. Isn't it time for choice in education? Isn't it time for other points of view and styles of pedagogy to be made available to children in our state. Many many parents would love to send their children to religious schools where The stories of great religious saints and heroes are taught in order to inform the imagination of students with the notion that virtue brings goodness truth and beauty to our lives.

Your Turn: Longtime resident concerned for Kansas

By all means raise money to pay alredy overpaid and overentitled public school teachers by selling cannabis to already distracted, disinterested, spoiled and over entitled young people. Great plan. Like wow, man.

Your Turn: Longtime resident concerned for Kansas

Where will you go? California? Illinois? New jersey, maybe? Colorado? If you feel unwelcome in Kansas as it is too conservative then by all means move on. But be assured all states have their benefits and liabilities so choose wisely before you leave and remember a state that seems liberal and appealing to you just now may well be broke and strugging next decade as it attempts to pay for its very generous benefits that can only be supported by gouging tax payers one of which you most certainly will be.

Maybe you would prefer Europe, but again beware of failed states there like Greece, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Portugal, and now even France is on the brink. Alas, socialism is a wonderful prospect until debt becomes larger than revenew and other people cannot be induced to pay for the average citizens benefits.
