At least 59 killed, 527 wounded as gunman opens fire at Las Vegas concert; worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history

Those weren't reports, they were lies and propaganda--first attributed to the wrong person entirely. The second wave of lies were that he was a recent convert to Islam...which you'll probably start regurgitating soon enough.

Those lies spread like wildfire because of people like you Bob, who have no interest in facts, but rather in interpreting all things through your pre-conceived dogmas.

State workers at site of shooting had guards, security until Kansas' privatization push

Bob also seems to be implying that if you get upset about your taxes, shooting government employees that work for tax agencies is perfectly reasonable.

Irony is that they weren't even his taxes--they were sale taxes his customers paid. I get that Ayn Rand style idiocy has poisoned enough American minds that people think that infrastructure, essential services, police and fire departments, etc., are "theft"(even though, in this case, the business owner was the theif), but its rare to see someone affected by such idiocy be so honestly permissive about the use of violence as a potential solution to these imaginary problems.

White nationalist posters found on Kansas State campus

Because BLM ISN'T a black nationalism movement, its a call to stop unjustly shooting black people. The people behind that poster link directly to white nationalists.

In police departments across the nation, the culture of brotherhood must be replaced by a culture of accountability, or 1) injustice will continue to win out and 2) police departments will continue to lose legitimacy and good relationships with their communities. Even if you think BLM is full of it, you want PDs to have good relationships with their communities, right? The culture of brotherhood--which forces the 90% of good cops to side with the 10% of bad cops when those bad cops do bad things--destroys that potential.

Isn't it funny how the folks that listen to Hannity and other liars all day also constantly use the same Soviet-style propaganda techniques that their dear leaders and propagandists do? Coincidence I'm sure!

Incorrect premises followed by a racist, incorrect conclusion. That you don't see a problem with it speak more about you than the poster itself. And vis-a-vis the types of groups posting it, "we have a right to exist" is a step or two away from "we have a right to make sure you don't exist here in our "white" countries", which comes across as implied violence to alot of people that sentiment will be directed at.

I understand that people who are fed Hannity/Fox/Info Wars lies and propaganda all day might have missed it, but even if you ignore history and only want a contemporary example, here you go Bob!

Tyson Foods to build $320M chicken operation near Tonganoxie; plans to employ 1,600

I'll admit that I am somewhat uninformed about the possible environmental and local impacts of such a large plant going into a community of that size, and I have some reading to do.

That said--to those on the left who are against this--1600 long-term jobs is a major employer added to the area. That's nothing to sneeze at, and you're going to need a better argument to me than it produces wastes, smells and inconveniences to deal with. If that is all there is to worry about--welcome to the world of industrial production--the 1600 jobs are a benefit that outweighs those costs, imo.

To those on the right worried about immigrant workers, I'll never convince you of the folly or grossness of your position--I just hope folks like you have no sway over decision making as immigrant workers are a valuable strength to our society and economy, and I welcome their contributions.

This is complete nonsense. LJW should be embarrassed by this article.

Letter to the editor: Making us blue

I find it highly ironic that Mr. Roundabout Ranter would question the import of this discussion.

Fwiw, other cities that have retrofitted their street lights with higher K temp lighting reportedly do have complaints from citizens. Maybe we should at least investigate the frequency, severity and legitimacy of such complaints before we make a big infrastructure investment into what might be a bad idea.
