Bernie Sanders fires up Kansas Democrats at Topeka rally

Explain to me, please, why our tax dollars go to prop up the stockholder's dividend payments of hugely profitable corporations? Corporate welfare far exceeds the amount spent on any social programs and the only reason Social Security's finances are in question is because the Fed "borrowed" a huge chunk of the Trust Fund to finance their deficit because the GOP can't bring themselves to raise taxes to actually PAY for anything. If you want a demonstration of "getting something for nothing", look at the f-ing GOP. Want a 2-front war and dump the expense on the next administration? No problem. Take a long look at how deficits trend and, magically, they go up during Republican administrations and shrink during Democratic times. But you see yourself as the "fiscally responsible" party? It's baloney now and has been for the last 35+ years.

Bernie Sanders fires up Kansas Democrats at Topeka rally

Who, exactly, did he "sell out"? Sen. Sanders did exactly what he said he's do when he declared his candidacy, run on his issues and, if unsuccessful at the convention, support the nominee. I can see how his honesty and consistency could fool you, though. It's such a rare thing among the political class.

Bill to exempt KU hospital, other public health facilities, from gun law fails in House committee

I seem to remember a shooting in the ER at KUMC several years ago. Not good. Funny how politicians and the NRA love guns everywhere they are not.

California travel ban on Kansas affecting KU basketball; LGBT rights group seeks repeal of 'religious freedom' law

Not if the games aren't played IN Kansas, which won't be a problem since no NCAA Tourney games are going to be played in the state.

Editorial: Reject Kobach’s terrible ideas

Why do "conservatives" never want to go after the real problem, the businesses that hire/exploit these desperate people. Bust a few plant managers and the problem dries up. But, it's so much easier to point at the "others" as the problem.

KU planning for metal detectors on game days at Allen Fieldhouse, Memorial Stadium

Gee, I wonder if the people that make these metal detectors donate to the State GOP, too?

Editorial: Governor failing Kansans

I hate to break it to you, but Brownback and a large segment of the GOP in the Statehouse don't work for the taxpayers of the State. And they haven't in years. They are paid employees of Koch Industries, pure and simple, and are only interested in advancing the theories of the Kochs and ALEC. Reality doesn't enter into their equation.
