Kansas Gov. Brownback creates Social Services Policy Council

He's looking for ways to cut people off of assistance that he himself has created problems for. The man is not here on earth. And may have deep seated mental conditions.

Sam does not invite anyone to sit on a "council" that does not agree with him.

One answer: Put every state worker back to work that Sam has fired over his years.

second: call in all of the tax cuts and put that money back into the general economy.

third: It should be clear to all of us Sam will not deviate from his personal agenda. Kansas
cannot be saved without recalling Brownback,Kobach,the Lt governor and Merrick the elected official that is also an ALEC board member.

BTW where are the public education tax dollars and the KPERS tax dollars? How has the governor spent these tax $$$$$$$ that were not his to spend? Borrowing more than a billion dollars to cover the cost of tax cut dollar losses is dumb and reckless economics.

We must ask ourselves why in the hell does corporate America want to own government programs that they spend so much time and money convincing we taxpayers our great programs are evil and do not work? BIG PROFITS

Thousands upon thousands of public school teachers throughout the USA could receive pink slips. Think what impact that would have on students,

Thousands upon thousands of public school teachers throughout the USA could receive pink slips. Think what impact that would have on local economies.

Thousands upon thousands of public school teachers throughout the USA could receive pink slips. Think what impact that would have on the real estate industry and home sales.

Thousands upon thousands of public school teachers throughout the USA could receive pink slips. Think what impact that would have on property values after the economy goes down the tubes one more time at the direction of the GOP one more time.

Thousands upon thousands of public school teachers throughout the USA could receive pink slips. Think what impact that would have on home loan bankruptcy activity.

Thousands upon thousands of public school teachers throughout the USA could receive pink slips. Think what impact that would have on car sales.

Thousands upon thousands of public school teachers throughout USA could receive pink slips. Think what impact that would have on the overall quality of life in American communities thanks to the GOP one more time.

Taxpayer should want more tax dollars spent on public education because it brings our tax dollars homeā€¦.. which are spent in many many many local economies.

Lawrence superintendent testifies against a bill to repeal Common Core standards

Editorial: Opposing view

Call in all of the tax cuts and don't borrow a billion $$$$$ to cover the cost of the tax cuts.
That is not only counter productive it is insane.

Admit the tax cuts were based on unsound economic logic and reinstate the taxes.

What did Sam the the Sam's sheep do with the KPERS money? Where is it?

The lions share of taxpayers are not realizing less money going to Topeka so what are the
phoney republicans doing with the money?

We need an audit. We need the FBI called in. We need a grand jury. And we want prosecution.

President Obama when will you assign the FBI to the Kill Public Education Scandal?

This is all about funneling trillions of public school tax dollars into the pockets of corporate profiteers and to Christian Fundamentalist Private Schools.

Radical Right Wing Libertarians don't care how they accomplish their fascist agenda even if it required using fundamentalist politicians ---- who I doubt have a Christian bone in their bodies.

On another front citizens need to come together and demand the US attorney general call in the FBI to investigate what happened to our tax dollars. We taxpayers are not sending fewer
tax dollars to Topeka. Where are they going?

BTW I applaud the efforts of Rick Doll however his words are falling on deaf ears for he is addressing the party law breakers who know what position Sam ALEC Brownback is putting USD school districts in. Extortion might be in play as we speak among other questionable
activity. Other states are suffering from ALEC as well. This is why the FBI needs direction from Obama to investigate.

No Child Left Behind and K-12 Virtual school were both designed to make public education fail according to the kill public education guidelines. The designers/owners are part of the defund/dismantle public education scandal that Kansas and about 17 other states are being subjected as we speak.

City Commission candidate profile: Matthew Herbert

Instead of a many multi million tax $$$$$$$ LPD how about if Lawrence would invest in a community owned mental health facility? Unfortunately it might pay for itself.

Move the people from jail to a caring/treatment facility.

The 15th and Wakarusa LPD location can be improved/upgraded/rehabilitated to meet demand. Architects can be creative I think we know. As a taxpayer I am not ready to take a loss on this facility as a result of a sale. If my memory serves me well this location sat on the market for some time then city hall came along. Let's make it work.

$47,320 per acre aimed at the community stakeholders aka taxpayers is unacceptable.

Natural Breeze construction people are in the LPD backyard. I've lost faith in the "big guys".
