Kansas to join states allowing concealed guns without permit

Since you can't be called names on here what is a little man like creature that comes out from under bridges to harass passersby? three of these entities live on here. what's the matter?
don't you like crime situations where people survive and guns aren't used? I repeat FACTS
because the little people under the bridge don't like FACTS. I could've purchased a 25 cal.
Raven but instead I purchased mace. I negotiated a crime situation WITHOUT A GUN
and survived. I did this as a 23 year old no less. I'm 44 now. How can conservatives claim
any intelligence when they recycle failed Reagan policies that even G.W. Bush called VOODOO ECONOMICS when he ran against Reagan in 1980? It's sad when 47 percent of
this country can be led to vote against it's own interests by guns, abortion, homophobia, and xenophobia. It's even worse when these people are in a race to emulate Mississippi
culturally and politically. Who'd want to emulate Mississippi? why are people in such a hurry
to embrace denial and failure? I wouldn't call this complex critical thinking. I'd call it pathetic.

Furthermore people who carry openly in public have compensation issues. Between
1992 and 1996 I delivered Chinese food in Central, East, and Southeast Topeka.
Deer Creek housing, Newtown Housing, Ripley Park housing, the presidential streets.
Both of my robbery events happened of Western and Buchanan Streets in the early to mid 1990's. I wasn't carrying either time. I'm still here. The robbery attempt on Western Street
involved gunshots. I talked the kid out of robbing me. Thinking trumps an arms race unless
paranoid fervor overwhelms reasoning. It's sad where segments of this country have dragged
the thinking people. Consequences must always be ignored by emotionalists right?

Wow, I bring out all the hysterians none of whom care about substance. Empiricism annoys
emotionalists because they don't like facts. I must've said many things right to annoy the
emotionalists. I spent five years tracking down an 1889 Belgian Fabrique Nationale (FN)
World War One carbine. They're hard to find because the Germans went through Belgium
in the First World War and took over Belgian armament companies for German supplying and
the ones here are bring backs. I also enjoy the fact that I corrected the identity of a weapon
being sold at a regional gun shop because these politicized gun sellers were concerned
with being rabid defenders of paranoia than properly labeling the weapon they were selling.
An 1871/1879 Dutch Beaumont Maastricht early Bolt action rifle is not an 1871 Mauser.
I've been identifying guns for over thirty years. For many years as a young child I had
to learn the difference between an 1891 Argentine Mauser and an 1889 Belgian Mauser because at a distance on a table they're hard to differentiate. I'm a history academic when
it comes to weapons. Thinking and learning trumps rabid chest beating right?

I'll spell this out......when one political party cannot win national elections and keeps running on ideological purity and eating their own and pushing unconstitutional and racially offensive political bills the only way they can keep the blind fervor of paranoia going is with political
legislation like this to arm their followers against all perceived and imagined boogeymen.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 allows EVERYONE access to PUBLIC places right Indiana?
We went into a Pizza place in Perry, Kansas last year and saw a young White person
carrying a 45. caliber Colt Auto pistol on his side in the restaurant. We got up and left.
Nothing like giving prejudiced people a weapon to back up their prejudices. When elections are lost one must arm their followers to reinforce their sense of nominative righteousness
in spite of buffoonery and no logic. BTW, I'm a three decade gun owner and hunter and I
BELIEVE IN NONE OF THIS NONSENSE. I've helped collect historical weapons and I'm
knowledgeable of collectible guns. So nice of the GOP and NRA to profit from paranoia
and racial animas.

Tax appraiser says home values up slightly, ag land values soar

During the 2014 election cycle people were warned that this tax mess the gop created would cause a raise in property taxes on farm lands. You voted for Brownback you reap what you sow.

Wetlands fans anticipate Baker discovery center opening

People who never learned the destructive acts of their culture at a school that charges $30k a year to attend use the term grousing in the past because their college of choice didn't value history as knowledge. Old Castle and the wetlands are proof of this. The building of this road in the wetlands is akin to the flooding of Seneca lands in violation of ratified treaties with the Kinzua Dam in Pennsylvania in the 1960's that led to the forced relocation of Seneca people from the Cornplanter land Grant in Pennsylvania to the Allegheny Reservation in New York State or the flooding of Celilo Falls in Oregon where numerous Oregon tribes fished salmon for millennia until a dam project destroyed the area. In essence historical ignorance is no defense and since Baker supported breaking it they in essence can now own the consequences of their destruction. Ask the professors "What's history anyway?"

I grew up at 416 5th Street in Baldwin City at my grandparents right across the street from Old Castle Museum or the first site of Baker University from 1975 on visiting every summer and living there while attending Baker University from 1988-89. I used to look at the collections they had there. Baker University has let this building and it's collection go. They even spoke of this in the last Baker Orange. It's seems many Baker students suffer from a lack of informed history about the Indigenous peoples whose lands they inhabit. The land that all of this stuff is occurring on was used to re educate Native children to White farming in spite of the fact that indigenous peoples had been farming on this continent for thousands of years before pretentious and condescending immigrants showed up demanding Nahollo anumpa be spoken instead of their indigenous languages at Haskell Institute and made these Haskell students stay captive on boarding school campus for years at a time so that Native culture,
language, religion, and a cultural connection to the land could not be passed down. The American Society sought to eliminate indigenousness then as this road project has desecrated the area now where many Haskell students were culturally stripped of who they were and the attempted elimination of indigenousness happened with the dismissal of Indigenous connection to the land by a Non-Indian College and a Non-Indian Judicial system in the last three years. I know of two now deceased elders, Oklahoma Choctaw and Kansas Munsee, who attended Haskell in the 1930's and 1940's who were kept away by force from their parents to keep their culture from being passed down. They both told of their boarding school experiences back then. The Munsee woman was taken from her parents at nine years of age and shipped around to the Genoa Indian School in Nebraska, the Wyandotte Indian School in Oklahoma, and Haskell, between 1929 and 1937. The kids who worked the fields KDOT, the US Army Corps of Engineers, and Baker University helped destroy had the same experiences if not worse than the two people I mentioned above.

Thanks for the destruction, white washing, and denial of indigenous history and culture on the lands you've desecrated. May be you can show Baker University how to finish the destruction of things with the Old Castle Museum building. Nothing like letting the building your college began from go to a total mess, Then again if all Baker University and it's employees care about is money than what's history anyway?

Foreign language enrollment at KU: Down but hardly out

Indigenous languages are where growth takes place. This country did such a wonderful job of creating a monolingual culture of colonial destruction in it's infancy that many languages became extinct except on paper. Now as tribes have gaming monies to re invest in cultural revitalization good things happen. Nittak Chahta anumpa li. I didn't speak Choctaw until I was 28 years old. Nittak pokoli ushtah awah ushtah siah. I may not speak the language well but I understand it as a 44 year old. Colleges like Harvard with Munsee, MIT with Wampanoag, and KU with Siouan languages, have worked with the revitalization of supposedly dormant or extinct languages. Look at the whole picture.
