Unity push draws in Kansas backers for Sanders, but not all

As eloquently stated by the author of Race Matters, Jill Stein provides all Americans with a choice in 2016. You don’t have to vote for a xenophobic billionaire. You don’t have to vote for a Democrat advised by Henry Kissinger who accepts prison lobbyist money.

You can change the same political system that has given us Iraq, mass incarceration, the war on drugs and terror, and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. You can vote your conscience, and vote for the most qualified woman in the 2016 presidential race: Jill Stein.

Unity push draws in Kansas backers for Sanders, but not all

I see Wall Street banker Robert Rubin will speaking on behalf of the Clinton's tonight. Rubin was a strong force behind killing Glass Steagall thus deregulating the big banks a very reckless venture thus far. Bill Clinton signed off on this deregulation instead of using his veto pen. Bill and Hillary are way too close to the medical insurance industry in spite of political rhetoric stating the contrary for my liking.

Further ...

"Bill Clinton signed off on NAFTA, claiming it would create more and better jobs. He ended welfare as we knew it with "Welfare Reform". He escalated the "War on Drugs" and built multiple new prisons, creating the police state we have now ... And the world's leading rate of incarceration ... Disproportionately Black. Bill Clinton repealed Glass-Steagall, deregulating the banking industry, with disastrous results.

"During Bill's tenure, Hillary was his co-president. Having been fooled once, it's hard for some to believe what she's saying now. Will she improve the lot of the middle class by, for instance, declaring, once again, for the Trans-Pacific Partnership or will she be in favor of a heavy tax on outsourcing?

Will she help ordinary people by consolidating the "too big to fail" big banks even further? Will she provide second rate health care to all Americans by expanding the power of the insurance industry?

The one presidential candidate that is closest to the Bernie Revolution would be Jill Stein. Voting for Jill Stein would further promote not only Bernie's revolution but also a people's agenda. This must take place sooner rather later somehow.

This revolution needs to be kept alive. Which means Hillary will need to be watched closely every second 24/7. How will the people's agenda forces hold Hillary's feet to the fire?

Hillary as secretary of state has been promoting Fracking abroad to the people's disdain. No doubt the Koch Oil people have been very happy that their investment in this toxic enterprise has been allowed grow beyond belief.

Chamber-backed group attacks Kansas moderates

This should not be surprising .... the Kansas chamber is owned by Anti American Koch dollars and other radical right wing nuts. Which is a very good reason why the Kansas Chamber is a waste of time and money.

The most beautiful place in Kansas is in Lawrence; new numbers show Kansas economy strongest in the region, creating questions for Brownback

How People Cooled Houses Before Air Conditioning

Home air-conditioning units have been available to the wealthy since 1914, but they didn't reach the middle class until the post-World War II economic boom, when they became standard in suburban developments.

That wasn't that long ago, which begs the question, especially in the dog days of summer, how on earth did our predecessors deal with heat waves?

Curbed recently conducted its own investigation into the matter and found that the answer lies in the common architecture exemplified by houses throughout the South, a region known for its heat and humidity.

Design elements such as sleeping porches, roof cupolas, and "shotgun" and "dogtrot" floor plans helped maximize air circulation, according to Jonathan Hogg, an associate at Ferguson & Shamamian Architects. For example:

House Beautiful indicates to me that this publication is run by the real estate industry as I believe
most pf these "polls" are.

What is not mentioned is Lawrence being the most expensive location to live in Kansas coupled with "Always Low Wages" and inflated real estate values.

Kansas officials certify 75-year-old woman as a voting-eligible citizen after birth certificate lost

These anti American RINO’s have this voter suppression tactic down to a science which is to say they know exactly how many suppressed votes are necessary to win. Do NOT under estimate.

How many voters have radical RINO conservatives purged thus far? Surely we don't believe conservatives have stopped breaking the law.

Our right to vote has been under attack for a few years since Brownback and Kobach managed to get elected. 17 other states are also being subjected to such criminal activity.
A well organized Koch/GOP event. Why vote republican ever again?

Voters ORGANIZING A VOTING DAY PACKET might be a preventive measure which could include:

--- a birth certificate

--- a drivers license or state ID card

--- proof of voter registration etc etc etc.

--- Military Discharge Papers

--- Keep this packet close to protect your right to vote

Do it today in case it is discovered one or more of the above cannot be found. None of these are difficult to replace. But will take time.

Check your voter registration frequently online by entering your first and last names and date of birth: https://myvoteinfo.voteks.org/VoterVi...

If you have a Kansas drivers license or Kansas Non-driver ID, you can register to vote or update your registration online: https://www.kdor.org/voterregistration/

This story is an effort to make the criminals appear as though they are not guilty of voter suppression. I call it the smoke and screen approach. Then again I also am curious if this voter happens to be a republican.
