Stop littering your website with saturation point updates, please!!

give it it's own section or something, but it drowns out all the important issues people either want to read, or post.

anyone who reads this site, i would bet, has no desire to see how many people you have given citations to.

not to mention, i am certain for those 'stalkers' of drunk drivers, know how to access county information repeating the same things.

New gun control soon to be passed….

after obama is re-elected, sometime tween november and january, a bill will be introduced to cross check ammunition bought and weapons owned.

lets say, you bought a gun on the black market. but you need ammo. its too cheap on the regular market, so why not go to a legal store.

so you only legally own a 22 caliber, but yet you are buying buckshot.

this now makes you guilty of buying ammunition for a firearm you do not LEGALLY own.

due to your records showing you do not own a deer rifle,

you must have bought said rifle on the black market.

which means you are a criminal.

thus ending in your arrest for partaking in crimes against america?

please discuss!

why KU will win…

one: john calipari, sold his soul to the devil a few years back. umass/memphis ring a bell? two: bill self is the reincarnation of christ. only as a basketball coach, versus carpenter.

and three: because i want them to win.

KU wears its opponents out with hard shots in the first half with its consistent defense. then when the opponent is trying to catch their collective breathes they pounce.

everyone talks about being down in the tournament, but noone has yet to mention the missouri comeback.

this team knows, 20 or less deficit, can be done.

Illegal immigrant amnesty?

you know its going to happen inevitably.

but what would your list be, in order to allow this process to occur?

my first two years of work in australia, as a legal immigrant, were taxed almost double to the average citizen.

what should it be for those who illegally crossed the border, to gain your forgiveness?

first five years of employment they pay triple the tax?

they must perform five years of community service?

they must simply say 'im sorry' in english?

this is iron sky...

the next is transformers 3...

IMO

i believe this was done deliberately, and intentionally.

were iron sky to be released first,

it would give humanity a thought in the back of their mind...

is it possible for 'humanity' to survive on the moon.

is it possible for such a storyline to be true.

but if you release a movie such as the transformers,

and the same storyline unfolds.

it puts doubts in those minds,

that iron sky is genuine,

if not in idea,

but in reality???

Comet Elenin - 10000 times more rare than Haleys comet…. coming this October!!!

C/2010 X1 will come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) on 10 September 2011 at a distance of 0.4824 AU.[3] On 16 October 2011, the comet will pass within about 0.233 AU (34,900,000 km; 21,700,000 mi) of the Earth[3] at a relative velocity of 86,000 km/hr.[3] The Minor Planet Center ephemeris shows this relatively bright comet will reach about 6th magnitude near mid-October 2011,[8] but until the activity level of the coma is better known it is still uncertain just how bright this comet will become.[9] Elenin will make its closest apparent pass in the night sky to Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdušáková on the morning of October 8, before moving apparently close to and in front of Mars on October 15. The comet came to opposition at 178° from the Sun on March 14 and will come to opposition again on November 22 at 175° from the Sun. The minimum angle between the Sun and comet will occur September 26 (1.9°), and between July 28 and October 10 the comet will be less than 45 degrees from the Sun

its slipping away, and fast, please take heed…

when i lost my job in 08, in lawrence, i was making just under 16 bucks an hour. at then, the exchange rate for the australian dollar was at around 65 cents.

i moved to australia, and currently i make, for the same work/profession, and earn over 23 dollars an hour, and the exchange rate is over 7 cents greater converting to the dollar.

so in just under three years, the american dollar has lost over 50 cents to the australian dollar. not to mention the british gains as well.

i only make this point because this is a figure that is done daily. and for the last six months, the media/spin doctors/politicians have tried to say the economy is growing.

how can it be growing, if it continually loses ground to other nations monetary system?

It appears, the LJW does not want anyone outside the states, watching their videos.

Having moved to Australia a couple years ago, it was nice to come to the site, and view footage of KU sporting events, news, etc.

But apparently, the LJW has had a change of heart, about allowing viewers outside of the United States, viewing their materials. (Let us not forget, they want to charge you for an online version of the newspaper, when it costs them less to use this method rather than pay to have it printed on paper.)

Maybe this is an oversight on the webmasters fault.

But with today's day and age...

"We taped this, this is our content, and we will show whomever we want to..."

i can only assume the worst.

Either this site needs to state in a message when clicking a video, that the content is not available in your area, or give open access to people that care about the Lawrence community, regardless of their distance from ground zero. I spent many a nanoseconds trying to figure why I no longer even got the advertisements.

Busted:Fox News CPAC Ron Paul Video Deception

They used the previous years clip, for Ron's win, THIS year.

The point?

There were more boo's in the old clip, thus giving FOX the ability to sway public opinion towards Ron Paul.

Were they to play the real clip of the victory announcement, you would have heard ton's of cheers.

Obviously Ruppert Murdock has a thing for Sarah Palin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwo0Iy...

It is time for honest journalism, even if its boring and dry. At least then we would know we are getting the truth.

How much longer are American Citizens (not employees), going to make a stand?

Mangino wants out?

Something tells me, Mangino may be pulling a fast one on Kansas. This is speculation, but IMO, this is the perfect way to get out of a contract when one is unhappy. Sounds hard to believe one whose been made a millionaire would be unhappy, but...

IF hes fired, and his tenure comes to an end within the next six months, "I" believe it was a calculated attempt by Mangino to get out of his current contract without having to pay anything back?

i am merely engaging in speculative thought, so if i offend you, too bad

single payer health vs universal

THEN: So, my old policy in Kansas gave me this:

I had to "buy" my coverage @ 280 smackers a month. Then the normal 'co-pays' per visit, plus the 'co-pays' for medication. most people on average, go to the doctor, what, about 2-4 times a year? so i have just paid an annual total of 3,560 dollars to see the doctor and get medicated four times a year. i am talking about simple visits for the most common issues, flu, earache, etc..

NOW: My new coverage consists of this (after four doctors visits the last month to simply get a Health Check for my immigration status)

On a 600 dollar paycheck, i am taxed 75 dollars (total, not just for healthcare). I was billed $175 dollars for my first visit, 97 dollars for my second (these were chest xrays), $50 for my third, and 80 for my most recent. Now the first two visits, were out of cash expenses as i was not employed at the time. Now, i have been perscribed three medications. Each at a cost of 20 bucks. But the last two visits that total 130 dollars, plus the 60 total in meds..... I get every cent of it back once i go to the medicare office and show them my reciept and card.

So, lets assume, that 75 dollar taxation, times 4(per month) is all for healthcare (in all reality, the actual taxation for medicare is around 23 dollars a week.). now lets assume these are identical doctors visits i would have made in the states.

The total bill is now: Assuming all taxes went to healthcare coverage: 3600 dollars/year The more realistic number of 23/week: 1106 dollars/year

now lets tackle the wait times.

(i cannot comment on wait times other than normal doctors visits as i never encountered a serious enough situation requiring more than a PCP in the states, or here)

that being said... each time i needed an appointment made in the states, it would take on average 4-6 days to see a doctor for the common cold.

here: each appointment made was within four days of initial call.

matter of fact, my last appointment, i overheard a convo. It was a lady that needed a test and referral before she could go to another doctor. they scheduled her to come in within the next three hours.

so all in all, i have just shown, worst case scenario, you pay a lil more a year in taxes than you would on buying a health care plan (remember, every tax paying citizen pays the same rates, so one would surmise the quality is better with all paying in rather than just a handful), but incur no additional medical costs. with no real difference in wait times to get in.

the biggest differences, and you will have to differentiate between these examples and the more serious type doctors visits, is:

you cannot be denied for any preexisting conditions. you are not forced to buy more expensive medications do to patents on meds, therefore lack of generic prescriptions. no wait times for reimbursement of payments. no 'dispute' over what is covered and what isnt.

also, as far as the system here, as i cannot speak for legal/illegal immigrants in the states, when dealing with non covered individuals via medicare (to get a medicare card all you have to do is be granted stay in the country, and have a job so you may be taxed for you participation). They get the exact same coverage, except the rates described above, are paid by the individual with no reimbursement. Point being: if your undocumented here, you pay before you see the doctor, and are not a burden on the taxpaying citizens, but get the same rates as citizens.

my wife has three boys, the oldest being 11, and collectively she states she has paid no more than 3000 dollars over all the years of visits.... this being a more extreme case as not every single visit, nor medication is completely recovered in cost. i know i cannot factor in every circumstance, but this "Myth" about universal coverage, or whatever you term it, is dead wrong.

and for you 'socialism'oholics' out there, if you think universal coverage is socialistic, break down your payroll taxes and see what else you pay for for others. look at your phone bill and see how much YOU pay because OTHERS couldnt keep their phone on. look at how many government run programs YOU already pay to have as you call 'socialized'.

if you dont want socializm, as you would define it, you would have to stop paying taxes ENTIRELY!!

so this is a simple example of how universal coverage benefits all, where single payer systems will never cover 'everyone'

i know i ramble, and go off target, but i wanted others to see the other side... there are better ways than the current and you dont have to be scared about your politicians saying its bad. there are too many disinformationists out there, and your not getting the truth.

no system is perfect, but what the usa uses as health care, is down right abusive towards those that want, but cannot have.

3600 dollars or more a year

or 1100 dollars a year or more

you make your choice

Soldier balks at deploying; says Obama isn’t president Says he shouldn’t have to go to Afghanistan because Obama is not a U.S. citizen By Lily Gordon U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, set to deploy to Afghanistan, says he shouldn’t have to go.

His reason?

Barack Obama was never eligible to be president because he wasn’t born in the United States.

Cook’s lawyer, Orly Taitz, who has also challenged the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency in other courts, filed a request last week in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order and status as a conscientious objector for her client.

In the 20-page document — filed July 8 with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia — the California-based Taitz asks the court to consider granting his client’s request based upon Cook’s belief that Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to serve as commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Cook further states he “would be acting in violation of international law by engaging in military actions outside the United States under this President’s command. ... simultaneously subjecting himself to possible prosecution as a war criminal by the faithful execution of these duties.”

Cook, a reservist, received the orders mobilizing him to active duty on June 9.

According to this document, which accompanies Cook’s July 8 application for a temporary restraining order, he has been ordered to report to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday. From there, the Florida resident would go to Fort Benning before deploying overseas.

Documents show Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961, two years after it became a state.

A hearing to discuss Cook’s requests will take place in federal court here Thursday at 9:30 a.m.
