State attorney general: Kansas needs to vote on Supreme Court selection process

This was never an issue until King Sam became the guv. This should be left as is.

Efficiency consultants outline $2 billion in savings, efficiencies over five years; recommendations likely to be controversial

State employees have no recent wage increases so lets reduce their benefits as well. Most positions are already paid less than market, so now we'll cut the benefits. These people don't want to govern and they don't want government to work. This fits the bill. Consolidation of all USD health insurance benefits might be OK, assuming they use the most generous as the norm. In general, just more wasted time and money by a majority that refuses to see the mess they created.

Report: Kansas' November jobless rate slips to 4.0 percent

There are fewer working in Kansas today than a year ago. So tell me again how the "Sun is shining" in Kansas. The lower taxes on the rich to create jobs is an abject failure; doesn't matter if you are liberal or conservative, failure is failure.

Kansas county commissioner under fire after 'Mohammed' slideshow

If any of you had actually read the Quran or worked or even talked with Muslims you would know that the religion does not teach hate anymore than Judaism or Christianity teaches hate. I am not surprised that Peterjohn was the one to go on the rant. It is tragic that this kind of rant is tolerated from an elected official.

New multimillion dollar medical building set for west Lawrence; future of Clinton Parkway interchange may spark a battle

Last time I checked owning raw land was considered to be a high risk investment. Just because you thought something was going to remain the same doesn't override what's best for the entire population. Nothing wrong with the access road idea at all, unless you are named DiVilbiss.

Fact-checking Brownback's claims on the economy: Only part of story being told

There you go again. Tax rates are at their lowest since before the Great Depression. The dollar is not being devalued nor is the currency being debased. In fact real interest rates when adjusted for inflation are negative. Deficit spending is decreasing, something that hasn't happened since Bill Clinton was POTUS. If those government benefits are SS and Medicare, yes we can afford them. Kansas is better off than very few states. We have lowered taxes for what? The destruction of our education system.

Kansas lawmaker's remarks on 'racist bigots' launches House probe

These children are either US Citizens because they were born here, or they are the children of undocumented aliens. They have lived their entire lives here and we have already paid for their k-12 education. By enabling them to attend a state university with in-state tuition we are giving them a chance to succeed. They are not eligible loans or other aid. The alternative is to guarantee failure and to waste the money spent on their childhood education.

Court threatens to block new school funding plan

No wonder Sam wants to pack the court. They actually try to make sure the law is followed.

Lawmaker likens abortion to Holocaust

Maybe someday all of us will come to the realization that we do not know when "life" truly begins. If at conception, then nature or a Creator has performed more abortions than doctors as fertilized eggs are routinely expelled during menses. We can all have our opinions, but to equate terminating a pregnancy by choice to the premeditated expungement of an entire sect of men women and children is an insult to those who endured the Holocaust. Let us also remember that the nation that practiced eugenics for the longest period of time is the US of A, not NAZI Germany.
