Proposal to hike ag land taxes spawns backlash from Kansas farmers

I'm with Lawrence, Chris Golledge, and you, Greg. It's going to take a Huey Long to kick Big Corp out of Kansas, but it will be something to see, won't it?

Proposal to hike ag land taxes spawns backlash from Kansas farmers

Kansas Senate advances bill giving Kobach power to prosecute election crimes

There will be books written about the political, economic, and social fall of Kansas, cataloging the political assaults on democracy we accepted, and speculating why we didn't do anything to save ourselves. What's the matter with Kansas? We're ground zero. The first U.S.A. state to become a privately held subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc. without a fight.
