Boxing firm has suit against Kansas Senate hopeful Orman

When one is weak or obsolete on political policy they smear out of weakness.

Task force unable to pinpoint cause of earthquakes

Results brought to you by the Koch Brothers/Americans For Prosperity. Why worry about facts when the deregulators will tell low information people what they want to hear? What's the difference between pro-Russian propaganda in bordering countries and Koch Brothers propaganda here? none. Both want their views and on one elses.

Jenkins frustrated with lack of strategy for Ukraine crisis

Archie Bunkers are men who haven't evolved beyond their angry complaining father's views of Civil Rights and other issues like Women's Rights and the like and think that sounding educated and respectful of others is pc. They fight for the right to insult others like an American freedom. They have never moved beyond a point when a White man's word was the last word when it came to other people knowing their places whether it was being quiet and tolerating racist comments like a "GOOD" minority or knowing how to be quiet and cook in the kitchen. I was five or so living in central Louisiana and going to my late mother's family gatherings in Greene and Perry County, MS, and being around my grandfather and a couple of his siblings who were STRAIGHT Archie Bunker before Archie Bunker was on TV. Some of the people on here would fit right in Mississippi.
Someone needs to tell the truth here. I don't see a TOS problem with that. The Trayvon Martin, Redskins mascot issue, and Ferguson situation along with the fast food strikes
bring on Archie Bunkers en masse. I hear them all day on KMBZ whether it's Jonathan Weir, Rush, or the Dana and Parks or Darla J shows. Someone has to confront these people because they think in terms or regression instead of progression and they're bringing this country to a halt with the Tea Party and GOP because they fear the world changing around them and they try by any means possible to stop it from happening.
I've put up with people like this most of my life and I've had it. That's where I come from.

Douglas County leaders, Indian tribe continue to work on plans for North Lawrence property

Tribes use gaming funds to build elder housing at Mayetta with the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation and at Rossville with the Citizen Band Potawatomi Nation of Oklahoma. Tribes use gaming funds with the extensive language and cultural revitalization efforts of the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Cherokee Nations of Oklahoma, and the efforts of smaller tribes like the Kaw and Osage Nations of Oklahoma. Tribes like the Sokaogan Mole Lake Chippewa and Forest County Potawatomi Nations used a combined $17 million to buy lands along the Wolf River path and tributaries to prevent mining that used cyanide to extract the materials in the past in Wisconsin. That money came from gaming revenue. Tribes have treasury monies from past land sales and treaties but some stuff is paid for by gaming. In Mississippi the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians have satellite communities on 300 and 400 acre reservation parcels and a couple of them like Bok Chito are rural. Gaming monies paid for a new tribal school building and a community center for Bok Chito which is traditionally one of the most culturally identifiable Choctaw communities. Unlike other tribal communities these people are trying to raise their blood quantum requirements to 3/4th because they are Choctaw in appearance and cultural practices. I see poor people everywhere and Miami, Oklahoma doesn't look any worse for the wear with that many casinos than previously. They did have a bad flood a number of years ago with the Neosho River and many environmental issues with lead mining and Picher, Oklahoma, nearby but this town is the way it looks. I don't see the crime there.
That's not to say that there wasn't an official in Auburn, Kansas, who recently got caught big time for embezzling to gamble or a Muscogee Creek official that gambled on the tribe's card and was fired and is facing charges in Oklahoma. I've seen a new Cherokee casino at Ramona, Oklahoma, in recent years along with a new Myamiaa casino in Miami, Oklahoma, and a new Ioway casino on Route 66 near Wellston, Oklahoma, and I don't see the crime there. There's fixing to be a new Cherokee casino in South Coffeyville, Oklahoma on US 169
a mile out of Coffeyville, Kansas in the coming years. We live in a culture that hates to pay taxes and then wonders why things aren't done. The lottery was supposed to pay for schools right? they say that over in Missouri you know. What isn't paid in taxes is probably gained in gaming compacts when said people give away their money to casinos who give a cut back to their resident state to cover what these heck no people don't pay in taxes. The state of Kansas could've gained revenue from tribal casinos in the 1990's but they acted like kids and wouldn't come to the table and so they got no compact monies pre Seminole IGRA legal case in the 1990's. Now they run casinos and one wonders where that money goes.

Opinion: America’s exceptional view of guns

No because I'm not like you. You prove my point by seeing everything in an absolutist view.
I can help research a Dutch 11mm Beaumont rifle from the 1870's and be a thinking person when it comes to firearms. I see the academic and historical part of weaponry without any of the conservative chest thumping emotional part of clinging that gets you in so much trouble.
If you all ever stopped being clingers and started being thinkers I think I'd fall over. I knew KU
professors years ago who weren't clingers and had weaponry that would make you jealous.
They understood the difference between appreciating history and collecting and chest thumping and Charleton Heston. The NRA and their politicization of gun owning is what's messing everything up. I wish I had the magical power the NRA has to get everyday people to vote against their own interests with fear and paranoia that isn't really even proven.
I laughed when I heard about the federal government storing ammunition they took off the open market and storing it at a closed Chilocco Indian School Near Kaw City, Oklahoma last year. This sounds absolutely insane but you all run with it like it's the truth. I love when
hoarding profiteers buy up 22. cal ammo and mark it three times up just to make $ off their own consumers and then blame everyone else. Using fear of a president to sell guns is ridiculous but you all do this.
