How do you celebrate Easter?

Our grandson is into humming birds so sometime today he will receive a cute humming bird that could be a long time friend he can take anywhere ---- if he likes it. Children can eat only so many eggs.

Going to be a beautiful day.

Opinion: Court to look at campaign ‘truth’

40 years ago I could appreciate an opinion from George Will. Those days are gone.

Opinion: Court to look at campaign ‘truth’

The media should be fined big time for not doing their homework knowing full well politicians lie during campaigns. The Reagan/Bush campaigns exposed USA voters to character assassinations
and other misinformation gimmicks that proved successful. This right wing party of thinkers never looked back and to this day is in high gear.

What happened to investigative journalism and truth in advertising? Campaigns never stop and neither has the BS coming from congress.

George Will decided to be part of the problem.

Editorial: Missed message

Large voter turnouts typically and historically bring moderate and fiscally responsible governments to office.

Nasty character assassination and misinformation campaigns typical turn voters off which produce low voter turnouts which allows Sam Brownback police state fiscally destructive type of governments to office. Very big government is the word. VOTERS don't get duped by Sam Brownback style of nasty and police state politics GO VOTE!

Large voter turnouts typically and historically bring moderate and fiscally responsible governments to office. Fiscally responsible democrats are far better than any right wing reckless person pretending to be a republican.

Again large voter turnouts typically and historically bring moderate and fiscally responsible governments to office.

Editorial: Missed message

This is police state legislation and deserves to be tossed in the trash. This is also what happens when the state elects Sam Brownback and his beltway cronies to office. This also could be a step to set up a takeover of KU by private industry…..BEWARE.

Sam Brownback is not working for Kansas simple as that. In case voting taxpayers are not watching Topeka statehouse is in the process of dismantling public education so best move into the outrage mode. YES it can happen.

Despite constitutional problems, negative impacts on public schools, bias against disadvantaged students, and comprehensive studies in cities like Washington DC, New York, Milwaukee, and Cleveland which demonstrate that private school voucher programs failed to make any improvements to the education system Sam Brownback sees vouchers as a way to radically privatize the public education system.

Under the guise of “school choice,” Sam Brownback supports bills with titles like “Parental Choice Scholarship Act” and the “Education Enterprise Act” that establish private school voucher programs…. or any similar like titles.

Most Kansas republicans are sheep and are afraid to vote against Sam Brownback and Koch Industries. They live in fear of being replaced by the special interest bucks of not only Koch money but also the Wal-Mart family money and other out of state sources.

In new ad, group backing Brownback praises governor for school bill but doesn't mention repeal of teacher tenure

David Kensinger is also associated with the Kansas Club for Growth which is no more than one more right wing political action committee which launders money into anti American causes such as Sam Brownback and likely ALEC.

Also keep a close eye on this organization….. talk about subverting democracy..
