Letter: Not Kobach’s fault

U.S. citizens have a right to vote in the U.S.A.. Those who don't meet that requirement have no right or privilege. Since there are so many non-citizens residing here, it is necessary to check proof of citizenship. Kris's Crusade is a bit over the top in intensity, but the foundation is solid enough. It has nothing to do with a President of mixed race, however, who had some delay in providing his own proof of citizenship.

Letter: Felony required?

Our society has descended into confusion. A marriage is a man and a woman; what we call "marriage" isn't really that at all, but a deviation from God's intent for this holy and blessed relationship and building block of culture. You are confused because we are living in a mixed up time when God's institution has been disregared, redefned. KS law is closer to the biblical and cultural norm of human society for thousands of years.

And yes, polygamy is next; Utah was admitted to the union after the Salt Lake City Mormons changed their practice. But polygamy is hardly rare in the western states.

Kansas premiums lower than expected under new health insurance marketplaces, report says

The working poor can't afford this either! It is NOT the solution. Health care must be cost-contained - and that doesn't mean charging $10K,writing off $6K and suing for the rest of the co-pay and co insurance etc.

Anything the government has a hand in, and anything that can be financed or insured, costs more than it shoud. Consider concessions at the ballpark, with the government skimming some of the profits and limiting competition. Or, anything you can pay on installments.

Then, there's the absurd idea of a fine if you can't pay the premiums. Congress is of course, exempt. The only people who want this mess is those who don't have to accept it.

Bicylist injured after colliding with vehicle on East 23rd Street

It doesn't sound like the driver is the problem.

Bicyclists do not belong in traffic. They sure don't belong in the middle of a traffic lane, legal or not. They should ride on the curb and cross at corners.

Before you jump all over me, I am a cyclist. I ride to the right of the line markng the trafic lane and do not sit in an intersection with automobiles, trucks and buses.

Letter: Not incompetent

"There are peopole who find fault with whatever he does simply because they don't like the man." It is harder to like arrogant people than ones who are more personable. For example, "most thinking people would agree with the letter" reveals the incredible arrogance of the liberal left.

President Obama has bumbled his way through 60% of his presidency. And he isn't done ruining America.

Former Gov. Sebelius to attend reception to help Rep. Davis, who is considering a campaign for governor

KS was so fortunate to get her out of the state! Problem is, she now afflicts the whole country with her policies. To think I once voted for her to be insurance commissioner! It should be noted that anyone appealing to the Obama admistration for help in an election in KS is a vote to avoid casting.

Church battles local hunger with food fight

This is an odd way to promote the need for donations. Waste what you are requesting? It was obviously popular; but that isn't the measure of success or of propriety.

I'm opposed to battery operated everything. I really can turn on the water, flush the toilet, get a squirt of soap without a low-voltage electronic device to get it for me. What about all those batteries? And the water down the drain when the stick in the "on" position? That's waste, too.

Our fuel is up to 10% ethanol - made from corn and beans. The result of what seemed like a good idea has been an increase in global food prices. And, it takes about 2 gallons of fossil fuel to make a gallon of "green" fuel. Not good conservation.

As to the church and its mission: the marching orders are to "Go into all the world." In the going, preaching of the Gospel is the first command. God's love, shown in the gift of Jesus Christ, cannot be separated from why the church exists. It occurs to me that when He fed 5,000, 12 baskets were collected by the disciples. No food fight. Christ Community is a good church but I think they made a poor choice with this activity. I have no doubt they meant well.

Police searching for two men after car chase

What kind of car? To whom is it registered? The public might be of assistance in locating these individuals.

Pretty serious offense to start a car chase: failure to yield. Glad no one was hurt.

Letter: Theocracy, anyone?

I'll give tht a try! Thanks. It is interesting how many of the very things eschewed by the liberals when they see them in conservatives are practiced regularly. For comparison and contrast, if you think Gov. Brownback has been heavy-handed in his government of the state of KS, see how President Obama has functioned. And remember, Brownback's margin of victory was the larger. That is not a prediction of the next election.

Letter: Theocracy, anyone?

The civil disobedience which propelled the American Civil Rights movement made an appeal to a higher law. The human system was imperfect, corrupt and immoral. That can only be said if it is recognized that a higher and more perfect example exists outside of the realm of mere human endeavors, all of which are flawed. Those who do not recognize such an authority have no place to turn in the face of injustice and imperfect human constructs.
