Letter to the editor: Democratic elitists letting us down

Republicans in Kansas are not voting for republicans ..... they are voting for extreme conservatives which have not a repub bone in their bodies.

That's not to say good republicans are not available however the anti American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) will not fund republicans. ALEC has no use for republicans OR democrats.

Letter to the editor: Democratic elitists letting us down

The letter does make some valid points ......

For one thing democrats are not hard hitting yet the conservatives provide plenty of material.

Republicans in Kansas one day they are not voting for republicans ..... they are voting for extreme conservatives have not a have a repub bone in their bodies.

Estes is the latest example.

Opinion: America’s well worth fighting for

Meet PNAC:

"Rebuilding America's Defences," openly advocates for total global military domination” (Very dangerous position which threatens this nations economy, OUR freedoms,the nations security and world peace.)

title=Project_for_the_New_American_Century

Total global USA military domination” is a dangerous position which threatens this nations economy, OUR freedoms,the nations security and world peace.

I then question authority:

• WHY do we need to increase defense spending significantly to carry out our global protection for Wal-Mart,Oil,Coca Cola,Pepsico,diamonds,gold etc etc etc

• WHY do we need to strengthen our ties to dictator regimes friendly to American interests and Bogus values;

• WHY do we need to promote the cause of the political right wing and economic rape for corp USA abroad;

• WHY do we need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in forcing others to accept our corrupt multi national principles.

Such a war mongering policy of military strength and immoral clarity may not be fashionable today. But it is necessary if the United States is to build on the extortions of this past century and to ensure our security and our greatness no matter how many innocent USA soldiers and innocent mothers,children and fathers abroad die.

Do I want to blindly support any of the above? NO

Opinion: America’s well worth fighting for

The 37 year old war in the oil region is not fighting for America. It is however draining the wallets of taxpayers while increasing the wealth of the military industrial complex and those funding the 37 year old war aka Wall Street Banks.

Meanwhile.....

We arm the world terrorists ….. Dictators or Not.

Lawrence City Commission to review new amenities and partnership intended to make golf course profitable

After 20 years with the golf course still not on the mark just shut it down. How many more times will this issue be on the agenda?

It's a money hole that is not going anywhere. Sounds like the Riverfront Shopping fiasco.

The reason Alvamar was shut down is that not enough interest was still around. Be smart shut down eagle bend for the same reason.

Convert it to a very low maintenance hiking/biking trail. Let the bikes and feet make the trails.

Lawrence City Commission to review new amenities and partnership intended to make golf course profitable

I'd say the smart thing to do would be not approving any more golf courses in Lawrence. Pouring more and more tax dollars into that golf course is not real smart management of tax dollars.

This golf course has been kind of a money hole.

Shut down the golf course then funnel all of those dollars into a County Mental Health Treatment Facility. This will receive supplemental support from Medicaid,
Medicare, health insurance carriers and such.

Trump budget proposal would end Amtrak service in Kansas cities

Lynn Jenkins is useless. She is not running for office which is to say no one will pay attention. She's a Trump supporter so in essence what we are getting from her is political rhetoric.

SOOOOOOO what I am gathering is a profiteer is in the picture who sees a pile of dough known as tax dollars to support the private business. Yes folks that is privatization ---- turning our tax dollars over to private industry. Operational costs will shoot up beyond reality.

Judge orders Kobach to turn over documents taken to Trump meeting

Will Kobach break the law by refusing and stonewalling or will he be example of a law abiding citizen?

Law abiding citizen who are we kidding?
