If the Legislature does it, does that mean it's not illegal?

I'm curious, Peter Hancock about this meeting. Obviously you were in attendance. I read an AP story that said their reporter was not allowed in the meeting. Why?

If the Legislature does it, does that mean it's not illegal?

Thank you for writing this story. I have been asking several people why the legislators can just ignore a court order. I can't do that, and legislators should NOT be above the law.

Lawrence crafting security plan to comply with state concealed carry law

So, how do I have freedom when my tax money is spent building detectors and hiring guards? I do not feel any freedom when I have to be searched by a guard or walk between detectors. It makes me feel imprisoned.

Kansas lawmakers hope to send school funding bill to Brownback by Thursday

If you are so interested in limited government and personal freedom, why has this legislature, who you support and who got into their jobs via Koch brother monies, posed or passed so many bills that restrict the freedoms of cities or other local entities? KPI to me means Kochs Personal Interventionists.

Letter to the editor: Rude revolution?

I was at the Democratic caucus and saw none of what was described in this letter or the comments here. Granted, I was in the group outside, so maybe the description applies to what was happening inside the building. Outside the two groups were congenial. I remarked to a friend I wasn't sure which group to go to because either one worked for me. She agreed. One Clinton supporter passing out stickers stopped and talked with me about why she supported Clinton. I was in the line outside for an hour and never once saw a person being rude to a Clinton supporter. Guess it depends on your definition of rude. I rejected a Bernie sticker because I don't like wearing stickers. Was that rude?

Kansas tax collections nearly $54M below expectations in February; universities face millions in cuts

Yep. And when the school are shutting down, the Republicans will blame the Supreme Court justices for the mess. And maybe the Koch brothers and other billionaires will purchase the schools and privatize them. Isn't that the ultimate goal?

Kansas Republicans hold to hard-right stance; ACLU and League of Women Voters 'communists,' Kobach says

Thank you, Melinda. I saw this on Kobach's page before I read your comment here. I also reposted your comment on my Facebook page because I figure your comment and mine will be deleted from Kobach's Facebook page. Kobach already removed my husband's comments from yesterday.
