Brownback signs bill imposing more Kansas welfare restrictions

Yes, the Governor and State Legislators are sad/hateful people. But you know what, the people of this state voted for them or did not vote. Let's see what proposals the State Democratic Party has to counter the anti-family proposals of the Red Party:

Did you find any? I did not find any specific proposals to counter their ideas. At the local level the Blue Party has got to get their message out. Right now we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Lawrence school district leaders steer away from outright ban of Confederate flag

A flag is a powerful symbol. A hangman's noose, An Orange flag in Ireland, the Hammer and Sickle, Mao's Little Red Book are examples that provoke powerful images. The Confederate flag was and is a symbol of treason and secessionist desires. Many in our state fought against the evils represented by this flag. I do not think the that any agency of our government should turn a blind eye to that symbol that wrapped itself in owning other people. Yes, you are correct, we should move on. This flag is used as an instrument to remember the "Old Days." The culture represented by this symbol are waning and a more enlightened dynamic will prevail.

Kansas House rejects bill to repeal income tax cuts

Oh Kansas, how far you have fallen for the "Weegie Board" of trickle down economics. All smoke and mirrors. There never was a "Shining City on a Hill." Sadly, the joke is really on us. Please wake up from our hangover of "Voodoo Economics."

Brownback administration proposes massive cuts to cover Kansas' projected revenue shortage

Trickle down economics has never worked. Kansas has dug its own hole by reelecting the Governor and the Tea Bag nonsense that goes with it. What will it take for the state to wake up from this nightmare.

Plans filed for nearly 2,000 new apartments near South Lawrence Trafficway; several hundred single-family homes may follow

So this is just another 1980s type of development? Where do those under 35 want to live? On a cul-da-sac? No. Where is the sense of place? Can people live, work and play here? This is a boring retro development project that needs to be sent packing. We need better to stay ahead of those places that are dynamic.

Potential Confederate flag ban could mean legal trouble for Lawrence school district

Considering the history Lawrence had during the Civil War the students are correct in their belief to ban the flag. It is time to move on from a symbol of treason, sedition and hate.
