Faith leaders show SRS support at vigil

No, I commend the churches represented here. I was stating more generally.

For example, 100-150 years ago most hospitals were setup by churches or church-based charities (St. Francis/St. Joe/Wesley in Wichita come to mind). Nowadays someone goes to the church for help and they are referred to a gov't agency for help.
The church can then move to the burbs, build that bigger building and ensure that their members don't have to sit next to homeless and downtrodden folks.

On a more serious note, it is tragic that Brownback would cut funding to SRS in Lawrence, and it smacks of political opportunism.
I would call churches to step up in the vacuum. Not just to lament the cutting of government services, but to return to your true calling of taking care of the needs of the poor. I think that the faith leaders at this function understand that, but most of their contemporaries do not. It is not building megachurches on the outskirts of town, or having mega-prayer services like that happening in Houston that Perry hosted and Brownback attended.

Gov. Perry seems ready to run

Ralph Nader is saying today that a Democratic challenger to Obama is a certainty. I expect that they will swap Biden and Hillary roles and Hillary will be the running mate.

As for repubs I would expect Perry to be a headliner or running mate.

What do you think is the most recognizable brand?

In the south (Atlanta) they call all soda pop "Coke". You say that you want a Coke and then you follow it with what you really want.
I think that Coke is the mots recognized brand.

Protect benefits

True, Repubs ran the economy into the ground. But Obama has made it worse by accumulating > $1T in debt.
Reality about the debt crisis - Social Security checks will still be mailed. It would take 6 months of reprogramming to stop the automatic payments. It is true, however, that Congress is working on cutting entitlements as part of the deal. But the "cut" is really mostly a curtialment on yearly growth and is a budget trick. Most of the cuts in these deals are budget tricks that are out many years.
"not cut the Medicare and Social Security benefits seniors worked for their entire lives." Quit perpetuating the lie. Social Security is a tax, plain and simple. There is no money being saved that seniors have worked for. Why seniors let politicians raid the Social Security lockbox in the first place is beyond me.

Fox not a news organization

"t's perfectly possible for a news outlet to have a point of view and acknowledge it, without being propaganda."
True, Fox does not acknowledge it. But I completely disagree with your statement. News outlets should report the facts, not their spin on the facts.

Aviation rhetoric is misguided

I think that every industry gets special tax breaks.
