Huelskamp gets highest marks
in Kansas delegation by
conservative scorecard

Wichita Eagle [KS], by Dion Lefler

Original Article

Posted By:wildcat1, 2/1/2013 10:09:27 AM

Rep. Tim Huelskamp has been named a “Sentinel” of freedom by a national group scoring the conservatism of members of Congress. The scorecard by the group Heritage Action for America ranks lawmakers on their conservatism, based on their votes on bills identified by the group as being of particular interest to conservative Americans.(snip)In a statement issued by his office, Huelskamp was quoted as saying: “This scorecard separates the lawmakers who talk like conservatives and those who act like conservatives. I will continue to be the tip of the spear fighting for the conservative values

Comments:
Huelskamp is exactly what Kansas and this country needs to get this mess fixed. Of course, the left stream media in Kansas hates him.

OP, I agree. Interesting to note how Boehner purged him from his committee assignments and the Elites in Congress generally turn their noses up at him.

You know, we need to deluge great reps like Huelskamp with cards, notes of congratulations. A Congressman commented that everybody notices when somebody gets bucket loads of supportive mail. Congrats, Rep. Huelskamp! You are blessed Kansas!

Being like Texas would be costly
Wichita Eagle [KS], by Michael Smith    Original Article
Posted By: wildcat1- 12/5/2013 10:50:05 AM     Post Reply
When Gov. Sam Brownback cried “Look out, Texas, here comes Kansas!” in his 2013 State of the State address, he probably did not mean higher property taxes, relocated minimum-wage jobs and unequal school funding. Yet these problems balance out Texas’ storied economic growth. Brownback wants to eliminate Kansas’ income tax, the single largest share of revenues. This would mean massive changes to school funding, services and property taxes. The impact on economic growth is less clear.With no income tax and a relatively modest sales-tax rate of 6.25 percent, Texas also features some of America’s highest property taxes

Duke Rape Accuser Got 160 TV News Stories
on Accusation, 3 on Murder Conviction

When Crystal Mangum falsely accused several Duke lacrosse players of rape in 2006, there were 160 television news stories in the first five days after the players were arrested, but in 2013, when Mangum was convicted of murder and sentenced to 14 years in prison, there were only 3 television news stories, a difference in coverage of 5,233%. When the Duke lacrosse-rape story broke in March/April 2006, it was huge news, garnering massive, widespread coverage by the networks ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as by FOX, CNN and MSNBC, and the print press, such as USA Today, New York Times and Washington Post.

Miss Kansas weighs in on ruckus over

Soldier beauty queen Theresa Vail, Miss Kansas, has entered the fray created this week when a female Army colonel at Fort Leavenworth branded another female soldier too pretty to use in Army publicity photos. In the leaked email exchange first reported by Politico, Col. Lynette Arnhart warned her colleagues that photos of “average-looking” and “ugly” women should be used in public relations campaigns to attract more women into combat roles. “Unfortunately that is the sick reality and one of the many stereotypes I´m trying to break,” Vail, a sergeant in the Army National Guard, wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

Kansas is safeguarding integrity of elections
Wichita Eagle [KS], by Kris Kobach    Original Article
Posted By: wildcat1- 10/28/2013 11:28:48 PM     Post Reply
The integrity of elections has been a crucial concern of Kansans since the birth of our state. More than any other state, Kansas was born in an atmosphere of rampant voter fraud. Our first territorial legislative election saw 4,908 fraudulent votes cast (mostly by Missourians). In the ensuing years, many Kansans put themselves at great risk to safeguard the integrity of elections. The Kansas (Wyandotte) Constitution, adopted in 1859, provided that every Kansas voter must be a United States citizen to cast a legal ballot. The Kansas Constitution also states that the Kansas Legislature shall provide for “proper proofs,”

   

 

  


 
Why the Affordable Care Act
is good for Kansas

Posted By: wildcat1- 10/21/2013 9:41:32 PM     Post Reply
For the past 3 1/2 years, opponents of the Affordable Care Act have made misstatements about what would happen to families, to seniors, to employers and to health care costs as a result of the historic law. In spite of their predictions being so wrong, the attacks continue. So it’s important to give a snapshot of what health benefits the law has already produced for Kansans and what the new health insurance marketplace means for qualified residents in the Sunflower State. Let’s start with the 86 percent of Kansans who already have health coverage. Since March 2010, when the law was

Regulations are out of control

From job-killing regulations to invasions of our privacy, the executive branch in Washington, D.C., is out of control. According to the Heritage Foundation, during President Obama’s first term in office, the annual regulatory burden on the economy increased by $70 billion. And in 2012 alone, the president’s team put forward 2,605 new rules. Of those new rules, 69 cost more than $100 million, but only two rules actually decreased regulations. In Kansas, we know a little bit about federal rules and regulations causing us headaches. New school lunch regulations have taken away the flexibility of local school districts to provide meals that parents

Bulletin board at Wichita school

A bulletin board at a Wichita elementary school that illustrated the Five Pillars of Islam has been removed “because of the misunderstanding that has been promoted by … one photograph,” district officials said Monday. The bulletin board at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary was intended to aid students’ study of major religions of the world, district spokeswoman Susan Arensman said in an e-mail. It featured five white, construction-paper columns and the words, “The Five Pillars of Islam.” A photograph of the bulletin board, reportedly taken on the first day of school Wednesday, was posted over the weekend on a Facebook

GOP faction tugging hard from right

WASHINGTON — When Republican leadership in the House of Representatives yanked Tim Huelskamp off the Budget and Agriculture committees last year, some predicted a slow slide into irrelevancy for him. Losing the agriculture seat was a particularly harsh blow: A member from Kansas had served on the committee for nearly 100 years, and farming is big business in Huelskamp’s largely rural district. Now the 44-year-old congressman from Fowler — about 30 miles south of Dodge City — had lost the coveted spot for refusing to toe his party’s line.

Abortion-rights activists borrow technique
from opponents in Wichita protest

It was not your typical Kansas abortion protest. But it was indicative of a national trend of abortion-rights activists adopting some of the harsher methods that have been used against them in the past. Assailing anti-abortion counselors as liars, about 15 activists from around the country – and a couple of Wichitans who joined in – gathered for a rhetorically sharp protest Friday outside A Better Choice, an anti-abortion pregnancy crisis center near Central and Hillside.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig
on DPD inefficiencies:
´I wish I could make this stuff up´

Detroit Police Chief James Craig came to Detroit as a department outsider and has in his first month tallied an unhealthy number of baffling observations. "I wish I could make this stuff up," said Craig Thursday after sharing some of those findings with media. The city received a nearly $400,000 federal grant to purchase a new Special Response Team BearCat, an armored personnel carrier. "But for whatever reason we decide and let the grant lapse and at the last minute a local law enforcement partner took advantage of it and now has this SRT vehicle," said Craig.

Kobach´s Latest Folly

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is peddling a new legal argument that would be laughable if it weren’t so offensive, especially coming from the state office traditionally associated with promoting voting and increasing turnout. It’s that Kansas could create a second class of voters unfit to participate in anything but presidential and congressional elections. [snip] The Democrats also are unhappy that because of the proof-of-citizenship requirement, which went into effect Jan. 1, the voter registrations of nearly 14,000 Kansans, including more than 2,400 in Sedgwick County, are “in suspense.” The state says the wannabe

Costly not to expand Medicaid
Wichita Eagle [KS], by Phillip Brownlee    Original Article
Posted By: wildcat1- 7/27/2013 9:54:53 AM     Post Reply
Gov. Sam Brownback hasn’t expanded Medicaid eligibility because he says he is concerned about the cost. But two new reports by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured show how costly it is not to expand – especially for Kansans who need health insurance. One report estimates that expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act would reduce the number of uninsured Kansans by almost half, or 47.6 percent. That’s about 144,000 additional Kansans who could be receiving health insurance.

In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Obama characteristically saw fit to cast aspersions on those who disagree with him. Obama told David Remnick: There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who really just dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President. (Snip)I dislike President Obama because of his petulance. What other President would tell the opposition party in his first meeting with them, “I won. I’m the president,”?

The NFL is reportedly considering abolishing the extra point after touchdowns as part of its scoring system. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told the NFL Network on Monday that the league´s Competition Committee is looking at proposals that would end extra point kicks after touchdowns in favor of a revised scoring system. "The extra point is almost automatic," Goodell told the network. "I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd (attempts). So it´s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play." "There´s one proposal in particular that I´ve

He doesn’t have a son — that we know of — but that didn’t stop President Obama from weighing in on the pro football concussion controversy. The president made those comments in a wide-ranging interview appearing in The New Yorker today. The Hill reports: President Obama said that he believed NFL players “know what they’re doing” and understood the impact that concussions could have on their long-term health in an interview with The New Yorker published on Sunday, adding that he would not let his son play pro football. “At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor,” Obama

The world’s richest 85 people control the same amount of wealth as the total held by half the world’s population, according to a report issued today by the British-based anti-poverty charity Oxfam. The means the world’s poorest 3,550,000,000 (3.55 billion) people must live on what the richest 85 possess. Another way to look at it: Each of the wealthiest 85 Earthlings has access to the resources available to about 42 million of the world’s poor, a population equal to the total number of people living in Canada, with those all those from Kentucky and Kansas tossed in.

This is a story about Nelson Mandela, and it begins on Robben Island in 1974. Prisoner number 466/64 is writing up his life story, working all night and sleeping all day. (Snip) Everyone thought Mandela was a known entity, but he turns out to have led a double life, at least for a time. By day, he was or pretended to be a moderate democrat, fighting to free his people in the name of values all humans held sacred. But by night he donned the cloak and dagger and became a leader of a fanatical sect known for its attachment

As debate in Washington turns increasingly to the issue of income inequality, Gallup´s annual “Mood of the Nation” survey finds that two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied with the current distribution of income and wealth in the U.S. When asked how satisfied they were with the “the way income and wealth are distributed in the U.S.,” 67 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied, while 39 percent described themselves as very dissatisfied. In contrast, only 32 percent were content with America´s wealth distribution, and a scant 7 percent described themselves as very satisfied. While there is a sizable gap in sentiments

A new trend for male leggings, known as meggings, is about to hit the mainstream according to a new company which plans to make them accessible for all. Until now the super-tight trousers have been confined to the runway or worn only by rock stars but a new company plans to launch them on the high street. US duo Adam Freck and Andrew Volk, who launched their Chicago-based company Meggings Man Clothing in December, are specialising in leggings for the modern man. [Snip] Unlike traditional leggings, which are typically worn by women, ´meggings´ are designed for the male physique.

Older people do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access information, it has been suggested. Researchers say this slowing down it is not the same as cognitive decline. “The human brain works slower in old age,” said Dr. Michael Ramscar, “but only because we have stored more information over time. “The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know

But before that the former First Lady granted a long interview to the calm cameras of C-SPAN for its revealing two-year series of profiles on the nation´s first ladies. Monday´s program will examine the influence and image of presidential wives and will focus entirely on the spouse of President No. 41 and mother of President No. 43.
