Brownback does not offer comprehensive plan to fix budget but says he will work with Legislature

Brownback uses such words as "work with the Legislature" and other such choice words as a means to make people believe he might change which of course is nothing but deception and untruth.

The Brownback administration has a strict hard right wing agenda to follow aka there is no turning back.

Brownback does not offer comprehensive plan to fix budget but says he will work with Legislature

When a whole lot of republicans begin to understand that the Brownback administration and the Koch boys are NOT republicans they would be smart to pull back all support and vote democrat. However this will also require paying attention.

Libertarians,fascists and John Birchers were never any good at getting elected so they found some big bucks, then put together an effective misinformation machine and began portraying themselves as republicans and democrats(Democratic Leadership Council).

Then they began their thrust at keeping voters from the polls by turning campaigns into meaningless BS which sickens voters to the point they say to hell with voting. Of course accompanied by the bogus voter fraud nonsense which effectively removed thousands from
the voting rolls....... just enough thousands to win elections.

Budget woes threaten highway program, group warns

What is a liberal policy group? What makes it liberal? Is every person or group that disagrees
with the Brownback administration and the ALEC Party liberal?

Kansas Club for Growth is an offspring to the Club for Growth that was initiated by a former Brownback chief of staff.

"This shell game is unsustainable and not without costs — the money we borrow must be repaid with interest, and the projects we are delaying indefinitely will be costlier to address as maintenance issues go unaddressed year after year," the Kansas Center for Economic Growth said in a report released Thursday."

Is the Brownback administration running a shell game or not? Could the Kansas Center for Economic Growth be correct?

How do we know that the Kansas Center for Economic Growth is not instead a group of moderate fiscal responsible republicans? The Brownback administration is anything but moderate fiscal responsible republicans.

Editorial: Strategy shift

All of what has been presented seems like way more speculation and smoke ...... very little substance. It's just rhetoric.

It seems like KCMO has it's own needs to nurture.

"If Commerce and KCADC are impressed with what’s going on in Lawrence, they will be more likely to share their enthusiasm with inquiring businesses. Then, Lawrence officials need to be ready to roll out the welcome mat, present a compelling case for the community and close the deal."

How does anyone know that this is even viable? Isn't it possible that the KCMO folks know Lawrence is sitting over here? Don't they know Lawrence is home to high cost of living and low wage jobs....... I say yes KCMO movers and shakers know this.

$600,000 a year is not enough? What on earth are they doing with this money?

3 martini lunch, dinners and perhaps a 3 martini night cap?

Budget woes threaten highway program, group warns

Under the Brownback administration none of the "embezzlement" from other funds will be replaced........... none I say.

The economic giants are nowhere near the Kansas statehouse ........ however the thieves are numerous.

Borrowing from anywhere possible to cover the cost of tax cuts began big time with the Reagan/Bush voodoo economic teams. The Brownback administration associates fell in love with reckless policy and brought the disaster to Kansas. It's part of the back door plan that dictates selling off government services to right wing profiteers that which leaves taxpayers on the hook to pay the bills that will exceed our wildest imaginations.

Letter: A better future

Human made pollution brings on global warming which brings on Climate Change. Makes sense and lots of it…. I'd say.

While global warming has been a concern for many many many many many many many decades some things seem to be certain:

1. Never before has there been billions upon billions upon billions of humans polluting planet earth

2. Never before has there been billions upon billions of gasoline burning vehicles spewing pollution into the atmosphere

3. Never before has there been billions of homes demanding energy from polluting sources

4. Never before has there been billions of buildings demanding energy from polluting sources

5. Never before has there been billions of polluting energy generating sources

6. Never before has there been billions upon billions upon billions upon billions upon billions of humans supporting the clearing of the rainforest for food products not knowing the long term impact of removing massive numbers of trees and medicinal plants.

7. Never before has planet earth been expected to absorb tons and tons and tons and tons of pollution with human beings having no idea what the impact might be.

8. Never before has there been billions upon billions upon billions upon billions upon billions upon billions upon billions of human beings believing THEIR pollution is having zero impact ....... can we say ignorance is bliss.

9. Never before has there been billions upon billions upon billions upon billions upon billions of humans applying millions of gallons and or pounds of toxic chemicals to the landscapes.

10. Air and water pollution are man made driven by ignorance that nature is invincible. All of us have been ignorant of this until some decided to learn that there may be a connection to the human wasteful lifestyles
