Taxes, conservative wins
are top stories in Kansas

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:wildcat1, 12/26/2012 10:03:26 AM

TOPEKA, Kan. — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback started 2012 with the political winds at his back. As the year went on, the breeze only got stronger. At the start of 2013, it may be a full-on gale. Pushed by the conservative governor, Kansas lawmakers approved massive income tax cuts in 2012 that supporters insist would stimulate the economy. Then in August, conservative Republicans ousted House and Senate moderates in the GOP primaries, paving the way to easy November wins and setting Brownback up with a can´t-lose majority for the upcoming legislative session in January.

Comments:
Read the comments after the article. The usual left wing trolls post on every article. Kansas is very conservative, but the media as a whole, is far left on national and state matters, they gripe and whine about what the voters want, unless we elect an idiot like Queen Sebelius, then they love it.

"...in August, conservative Republicans ousted House and Senate moderates in the GOP primaries, paving the way to easy November wins."

And here I thought the ´conservatives´ were the reason Republicans were losing elections.

I may move to Kansas if this is all true. Missouri is pretty wishy-washy and, we have St. Louis, Kansas City and Columbia to deal with at every election - difficult to fight that.

Unfortunately Colorado has gone blue.
Dem governor (John Hickenlooper aka Chickenpooper), Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins bring down the state. The rest of the state are conservatives.

Many businesses on the Missouri side of KC have already moved to the Kansas side throughout the past few decades and more are planning to do the same. The resulting friction could have been avoided with better accountability of public policies which have proved to have stymied growth on the KC Mo. side. Yet the dems on the Mo side continue to enact policies which raise taxes, spend frivilously & permit irresponsibly, which are the original reasons KC Mo. has been steadily falling far behind since the 1970´s.

...Conclusion: Competition usually produces excellence but zealous dem pols, from the local level to the ensconced beltway statist failed policy makers, hate competition. The dem pols simply refuse to encourage local entpreneurs, even when their expensive but failed grandiose statist policies are obviously responsible for the current economic, crime, educational, infrastructure, & etc., problems of the city.

With their current responsible, accountable and ethical leadership, which is faithful to their oaths of office, Kansas and Texas are role model states leading the way by demonstrating how to bring out the very best Americans have to offer! States which stymie entrepreneurship are falling behind.

TOPEKA — A bill that nullifies local government control over guns shot through the House and to the governor’s desk in the waning hours of the regular session Saturday. House Bill 2578 would prohibit cities and counties from passing or enforcing any ordinance regulating the “purchase, transfer, ownership, storage, carrying, or transporting of firearms, ammunition, or any related component.” It would also ban local units of government from inquiring whether an employee has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. If the governor sign the bill into law, counties and cities could bar municipal employees from carrying weapons in work vehicles and from

On the heels of a Supreme Court decision to lift the ban on aggregate political donation limits, Charles Koch explained his political engagement in the opinion page of the Wall Street Journal. “Unfortunately, the fundamental concepts of dignity, respect, equality before the law and personal freedom are under attack by the nation’s own government. That’s why, if we want to restore a free society and create greater well-being and opportunity for all Americans, we have no choice but to fight for those principles.

Kansas Senate passes school finance bill
stripping funding for Common Core standards
Wichita Eagle [KS], by Bryan Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: wildcat1- 4/4/2014 9:42:27 AM     Post Reply
TOPEKA — The Senate voted to halt state spending on Common Core on Thursday night, during debate over a court-ordered fix for funding inequities between school districts. It went on to pass a school finance bill that provides more money for local option budgets if voters approve and removes administrative due process for public school teachers. Senators gave the bill final passage 23-17 a little after 1:30 a.m. Friday. The House will consider its own school finance bill Friday after its budget committee restored cuts to virtual schools, transportation and at-risk funds late Thursday. Sen. Forrest Knox, R-Altoona, introduced an amendment early in the

One year after opening, South Wind
clinic reports providing 1,200 abortions

South Wind Women’s Center says it provided about 1,200 abortions in its first year. The center opened a year ago in the same building where Wichita doctor George Tiller provided abortions before Scott Roeder murdered him in church in 2009. No clinic offered abortions in Wichita after Tiller died until South Wind opened. South Wind said it has seen a total of about 1,500 patients for reproductive care, including abortions up to 14 weeks. Patients have come from across the state and from a few other states, such as Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. Patient numbers are “right in line with our projections,” said Julie

Expect debate over health care
in Kansas to continue

Kansas Republican lawmakers have advanced a bill aimed at separating Kansas from the federal Affordable Care Act. And one to indefinitely stop Kansas from expanding Medicaid under the act. And one to require background checks for counselors who help consumers navigate the online insurance marketplace. They have held hearings about lawsuits against the health care act and its impact on businesses. And they use “Obamacare” as shorthand to explain their opposition to unrelated issues such as mortgage registration fees or Common Core education standards. Republicans say their intent is to protect Kansans from a flawed law. But Democrats say the GOP is focusing on a

Kansas, Arizona prevail
in voter citizenship suit

A judge in Wichita has ordered a federal commission to enforce Kansas and Arizona laws requiring documents such as a birth certificate proving citizenship for new voters. U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren ordered the Election Assistance Commission to immediately add Kansas- and Arizona-specific instructions to the federal voter registration form. Those instructions will say that new registrants will have to provide documents proving citizenship before they are allowed to vote, as required by state law. For most people, that means either a birth certificate or passport.

Amended bill would allow owners

Kansas gun owners would be able to carry a loaded handgun in cars regardless of whether they have a conceal-carry permit if a bill headed to the House floor becomes law. HB2473 would make gun laws uniform throughout the state by preventing local governments from enacting or enforcing regulations. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Jim Howell, R-Derby, passed without opposition in the Federal and State Affairs Committee on Wednesday. Rep. Michael Houser, R-Columbus, offered an amendment – which also passed without opposition – that would make it legal for all Kansans to carry a loaded handgun inside their automobiles. The rationale is

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
