Brownback focuses on 'crisis of the family' in second inaugural

Pretty good article, bring up good points about companies not eligible for the 0% tax rate may be trying to reorganize themselves so they, too, get the tax break, and tax-free break on profits is not tied to the numbers of jobs those entities create.

I am of the opinion gas prices can't stay this low for long without OPEC countries going to war with each other.

Falling oil prices good for consumers but not for state and local governments

If people where driving more because gas prices are going down would mean demand was going up and prices would be going up. Not happening. Lower gas prices are a "net gain" to the United States, does it hurt the Texas, Oklahoma, and other oil producing states more, yes it does.

Opinion: Low oil prices impact Latin nations

The world is crumbling around us, that is a major reason for the low gas prices. Look at countries like Japan who "celebrated" the 25th anniversary of its Nikkei high (38K) that is still half that today. Europe depends on Russia more then we think, China's cooling off. Oil was the last thing the world had on us and they don't even have that anymore. We have a diverse economy and as long as the government and banks don't mess it up we are good.

22-year-old Lawrence man sentenced to 25 years to life for raping child he met on Facebook

Thinking out loud, why plead guilty for 25 to life? At that point I'd roll the dice and go jury trial.

Editorial: United effort

A quick Google search showed about 20% goes to "administration cost", which is alright. 20%-30% is OK, over that is bad.
