Bob....Reagan was a disaster. Beat on poor people for sport.Brownback is doing this now. Mondale had morals and was a good guy. This country was in a dumb dumb phase and didn't want to act like dults.

Involved in the political process. However like a previous writer stated there has to be youth voting in midterms. Stop the gop from choking the political process. Obama had this issue in 2010 and 2014. Voting in midterms is more important than Bernie. Imagine if we could end the $174k salary that Lynn Jenkins gets for being an obstructionist. Congress has plenary powers over Indian affairs and funding in general. Professor Wildcat has to write an op ed in Indian Country Today because Lynn Jenkins and her party hurt Indian Country. We want an end to this.

I've heard all of the Hillary bashing and yet the Washington Post talks of how frustrating it is that the email story is a non issue. It's a shame when Bernie supporters use regurgitated gop zombie lies to no avail. Bernie has been an independent and doesn't have to have his political choices used against him politically like a Democrat or Republican would. It's disingenuous for Behind supporters to not acknowledge this. Bernie has been a Democrat for a minute and yet Bernie supporters complain about superdelegates which were created to halt another Walter Mondale fiasco from 1984. I applaud the effort of the Native community in Lawrence to get

Kansas Democrats: 'Nowhere to go but up'

At least the Democrats aren't nominating a reality tv star whose gone bankrupt four times and showing their circular firing squad on live tv. It's like a Quentin Tarantino movie where everyone has a weapon pointed at each other's heads. I'm beside myself laughing as the reality show star laid waste to the Bush family that many gop hypocrites and supporters of amnesia ran from after 2008. Of course the gop is always about mythology and someone like Trump feeds the alternate reality the gop functions on.
I wonder if voters in this country are in as much disconnect as those German voters who allowed that mythologist to wreck a country and commence genocide through scapegoating. You know mythology is a long way from truth and how long has the gop stuck it's head in the sand?

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia dead at 79

This justice treated tribal cases with the utmost ignorance. He was part of City of Sherrill v. Oneida Nation and Carcieri v Narragansett cases. He didn't worry about actual law. He made snide remarks. He helped pick cases to undermine tribal sovereignty. I don't miss him. To our resident anarchist....conservative thought is easy to understand....talk in circles and go back in time to accomplish nothing.

Free State student says flying Confederate flag not meant to be racist; others weigh in as petitions to ban it circulate

Douglas County was a Union area of Delaware, Shawnee, and European settlement during the US Civil War. The flag in question has no historical business in this area other than to provoke or offend.
From 1975 to 1981 I lived in Jonesville, Moss Bluff, and Shreveport, LA. I have ancestors both Union and Confederate. I don't claim the Southern cause because it was wrong. I saw the Klan in Ocean Springs, MS as a child.This flag is a reminder of a suppressive and violent era in the South and parts of southeast Kansas where African American, Jewish, Catholic, and Native American people were harrassed. The Klan went after Choctaw people in Mississippi in 1964 and Lumbee people in North Carolina. The Lumbee men routed the Klan in the late 1950's. In Germany the Nazi flag is illegal so they use the flag in question here. Southern states didn't adopt the Confederate flag until the early 1960's as a reflexive reaction to civil rights. The long held heritage claim is laughable. This is a flag of historical intimidation. To say otherwise is historical ignorance.
