The last time I drove to the west coast, I took I-44 west on the way out and I-80 east on the way back just so I didn't have to drive through kansas.

She might want to contact NORML, and see if they can provide her with an attorney.

They did so for a friend of mine on a weed charge.

You know, I keep telling you guys that working in the "justice" system isn't the sort of job that attracts nice people. Starting to believe me yet?

Re: “A look at Missouri's 2014 legislative clown show

yeah, that is stupid, the voters said marriage is between a Man and Women, screw them what do they know. Tax cuts that's BS the government should take more money! the totally have shown they can spend it better than the people. For that matter, hell expand Medicare to everyone. Those smart states that took on BILLIONS of dollars in debt have their shit together. The girl that wants to end a life, we should figure out a way to make that a drive through service after all it is her body, to bad she's not aborting herself, she's aborting someone else. Waiting periods are ridiculous, life is worth nothing. Your and idiot

Re: “A look at Missouri's 2014 legislative clown show

Why so condescending? It's a shame as the General Assembly needs to answer for another joke of a term. Traditionally there were a lot of businesses closed on Sunday (You still can't buy a car on Sunday). Yeah, church plays a big part in those traditions and they are slowly fading away but for someone so concerned about the happiness of workers, you'd think you would be grateful for a time when many workers got at least one day off. There are a lot of reasons we don't follow Colorado's lead and legalize and they aren't a mystery. Why the General Assembly passed a tax cut that won't actually happen is though (anyone thinking the revenue increases required will be hit is, well, probably recently returned from Colorado).

*Standing up and applauding*

Thanks for the information David. Being from Kansas I can assure you that Missouri becoming more like Kansas is a shame.

To think one could escape the ass-backwards rampant Republicans by moving across the border was always a failed plot. The virus of stupidity simply spreads too quickly.

Re: “Surveying the damage of Kansas' 2014 legislative session

These "problems" are nothing compared to states run by liberals. California, and Chicago for example. How far in the hole are they, and how expensive is it to live there? I wont even go into the crime rates in those states. Oh boo hoo, someone who passed a background check by the KBI is allowed to protect themselves.

Many people in Kansas are not fans of teachers being allowed to keep their job regardless of job performance. Tenure and teachers unions do not seem to be the best option for our children. It is hilarious to see people flock from California and move to states like Colorado and Texas. Trash one state and move to the next. Most people are idiots nowadays, and could not answer simple questions about our country. Like what is the state capitol of Kansas. Go walk around downtown Kansas City and ask what the state capitol of Missouri is, and see how many people are clueless. Yet they think they are smart by saying its racist to prove who you are in order to cast a vote for an elected official. Educate yourselves people. The author of this article has a serious chip on his shoulder about Kansas, comes off as a feminized male crying about the world that does not accept him. Kansas is not perfect, and I am not a huge fan of some of the state's actions, but not all is bad.

Kansas is home to global corporations that provide good paying jobs. No, we dont pay people $15 an hour to take your order at a drive through. Sorry. There are jobs here. The state unemployment rate is far better than those of liberal run states. You want to live in a state with high crime, high unemployment, and a high cost of living you go right ahead and move there.

Re: “Surveying the damage of Kansas' 2014 legislative session

Any teacher being able to be fired at any time for any reason means they are now just like the rest of us. Kansas is an "at will" state and has been for as long as I can remember. Democrats rush through plenty of laws. Remember, "we have to pass it so we know what's in it"?

As for the editorial above (because it certainly isn't a "news article"), I offer the following point by point reply:

--- if Obama didn't deliberately hurt vets and the poor every time he didn't get his way in terms of fiscal policy, this law would not have been needed. But he does, so it was.

--- One of these days, a homophobe is going to want a gay business to help them promote their anti-gay beliefs. Because of your opposition to this type of legislation, they will have no ground on which to stand. Or how about the Klan member who wants a black or Jewish bakery to provide them with a Klan themed birthday cake? They will also have no leg on which to stand. I bet that you'll be on the other side of the issue then, and not so proud of your stance now.

--- I actually agree with you on this point.

--- You might be surprised to know that the Swiss government actually requires each household in their nation to have a rifle. You remember all those school and work place shootings in Switzerland? Neither does anyone else, and for good reason. You blame guns when they are the tool for some mentally ill person or some jackass to shoot people, but when it's ANY other tool used you blame the person. It must be interesting to live in a world where such blatant hypocrisy is so openly practiced and celebrated.

--- Not sure what to say about this one. Can't the counties charge their own fees to record deeds? If nothing prevents that, then isn't any revenue they lose their own fault?

--- I thought Obamacare was supposed to be this utopian panacea where everyone had health insurance they could afford from private insurers, or worst case scenario a government plan that they paid for. That shouldn't require an expansion of Medicaid. So, by your criticism of Kansas not expanding Medicaid, can I then infer that Obamacare *isn't* everything we were told it would be? Or are the Democrats still finding out what's in the bill they bulldozed through Congress? (Gee, when your tactics are used against you, it doesn't feel so good does it?)

--- Honestly, my view on this, whether at the Federal or State level, is that our entire economic system is ephemeral and basically a very large group exercise in pretend. A computer programmer could solve either the Federal or Kansas budget crisis with a few key strokes. Our economy functions by and large because we all buy into the illusion because it's in our own self interest to do so, and because we can't see how any other way will work. If it's all an illusion, at some point it seem like all the consternation on both sides is mostly just for show and keep the great unwashed masses in check.

--- I don't drink beer, I'm a cider person, but I support anyone's right to make their own food and drink in their own home, to share it with friends, and to enter competitions.

Re: “Surveying the damage of Kansas' 2014 legislative session

Change is coming to Kansas. Other than the far right hillbillies who appear to love the legislature and Governor's race to the bottom, people are increasingly disgusted by what is going on in Topeka.

Change is coming. The far right monkeys need to go back to the zoos they were released from to have a shot at playing pretend legislators. If change comes too late, the State will be the laughingstock of the USA.

Mr. Hudnall:

I am a constituent of Willie Dove's. I can assure you the man you libeled as a "white bigot" is neither white nor a bigot. But a "professional" journalist such as yourself who checks his sources before making such an inflammatory charge would have known that, wouldn't he? Thanks for confirming the stereotype of an ill-informed political hack masquerading as a unbiased reporter.

Re: “Surveying the damage of Kansas' 2014 legislative session

FromCharles Front Porch







WHAT AM I:

I have read so much and all negative about the Tea Party and recognizing we cannot find the truth in the mainstream national media I must ask myself who I am?

I am pro civil rights. I have the knots on my head from Police Billy Clubs to prove it.

I am against abortion but only because the father of the child has no rights.

I can accept gay marriage but not until there is some sanity. At the present time you cant tell if they are married if they step 10 feet pass a line. How under present law can you ever get divorced?

I believe I can pray anywhere any time even in the front of others or at Little Johnnies school.

I could care less about the color of someones skin but I will not give them rights I do not have because of the color of skin.

I believe women are equal to men in Gods eyes but we are put on earth for different reasons and with different responsibilities here on earth.

I believe we as individuals and our government cannot spend money we don’t have.

I believe the Constitution of our great country gives me the right to own a gun and carry it in my pocket to protect myself from others. I pray we don’t reach the point where I have to use it to protect myself from my own government.

I believe in capital punishment. If you are that evil I could care less how we take your life be it either hanging, firing squad, electric chair, gas,the guillotine or lethal injection. If you hurt in the process so be it I remember the hurt you caused others.

You didn’t sweat or go hungry to start my business so don’t tell me how to run it. If I run it wrong the market place will tell me and I will go broke.

We must all pay taxes. Take note of the word all. Enough is enough. Government should be good stewards of my money. Romney was right.

My first political campaign was in 1956 against Strom Thurmond. My family could not support a Dixiecrat because of the racial component. We could and did support States Rights. I can find little difference between the Dixiecrat s MINUS the racial component and today’s Tea Party.

Yes, I am old and have lived under the rule of three very bad presidents, FDR (another 100 generations will suffer) for his sins, Carter and now Obama. I have never voted for a Democrat on the national stage and probably never will. I have voted for some at state level where I had to choose between two evils. The Democrats left the common man in the late 50s and early 60s. The GOP is making the same mistake today. We are a two party system and should remain so. I see the tea Party as being the Dixiecrat s of the 21st century so I am now a modified Dixiecrat, Tea Par tier trying to turn my party, the GOP, around. The Democrats failed to listen and it cost them big. If the GOP fails to listen it will cost them also.

If I had been around in 1776 I would have had my musket loaded and waiting in the dark for the Red Coats. I pray I will not have to wait in the dark with my deer rifle waiting on the Feds to come, however, I will if that is what it takes to take our country back so I ask you. AM I A TEA PARTIER? If so I am very proud to wear that label.

I can refute every ignorant point the Bitch is making here, but even if i used simple terms they wouldn't get it. It's obvious they don't understand human nature, the constitution or basic economic principles.

Re: “Surveying the damage of Kansas' 2014 legislative session

I can only say that this is NOT serious journalism. Reporting is supposed to be non-biased but this just smacks of a very liberal agenda. As a Kansas resident I do not agree with some things going on in Topeka, but, I do agree with the education reform and I believe no teacher is going to be removed for the examples used in the previous letter. I am concerned with the revenue issue but I am willing to give it a chance because it works in several states like Texas and South Dakota. I just think this is a very poorly written article however and the English teacher this writer had in Journalism school should be fired. That last remark was a tongue in cheek joke.

Re: “Surveying the damage of Kansas' 2014 legislative session

Let's not forget the education "reform" passed that removed due process. Any teacher can be fired for any reason at anytime.

It's supposed to allow firing of bad teachers (which was always possible in Kansas).

Expect to see bad teachers defined as those that don't promote intelligent design, assign a Harry Potter (or any number of immoral books) to read, or fail a popular athlete. Maybe a teacher's significant other is not the correct sex that promotes healthy family values around impressionable children. Basically anything an administrator or board member finds objectionable will be part of the bad teacher purge . Then again, we'll never know the real dismissal reason, since school districts are no longer required to provide a reason to fire.

Yes, we know this was all for the children. I guess that's why it was steamrolled through just before spring recess in an all night weekend session. Why are the noble laws these conservatives are so proud of the ones that are rushed through with no advance notice for debate and in the dead of night?

You've solved the riddle. Everyone in Leawood and Mission Hills owns a payday loan shop and everyone in KC Mo, KCK and Roeland Park borrows from them. Now get back to cleaning my pool I'm paying you by the hour.
