The First Amendment protects lies and offensive expressions of offensive opinions. “Truth” and inoffensive opinions need no such protection. Those who steal military valor are vile, pathetic cowards – precisely those citizens whose rights we service members and veterans pledged ourselves to protect.
If lying by falsely claiming to have received medals for military service is protected free speech, why is perjury still a crime? And why do we allow politicians to make false statements and promises in order to get elected? When did morality and honesty become obsolete?
I’m appealing to the Wichita community, including business leaders, to please stand up for USD 259 teachers and demand fair pay. When teachers attempt to seek fairness, they are seen by school board members as being difficult. Where are our community advocates? Do you hear us? Do you care?
Bullying has been around for a long time. I was bullied and dealt with it by either defending myself or just ignoring it. Our society is teaching children how to not deal with anything, and to let government take care of us in every situation. Stand up for yourself.
It seems with all the money the city and state governments have spent on the area planemakers, they easily could have bought one of their own. Hey, isn’t Hawker Beechcraft for sale?
Just like government employees, the city’s bid board has no problem spending your money. What if the board members had to make up the $2 million difference between the terminal construction bids out of their own pockets? See how government works?
Have you noticed that the illegally placed political signs, between the curb and sidewalk, have elephants on them? And some are running for judge.
More people seem to be igniting a lot of fireworks, then leaving the resultant mess for others to deal with. They must be Democrats.
After taking off work three afternoons during June, and after my May 30 deadline was extended, I still was unable to renew my vehicle registration. Not everyone can take off work anytime he wants. Should I receive a ticket for not having my decal, I will fight it in court.
With all the trouble that the DMV has been having, why not let the car dealers issue the tag when a car is sold? The dealers already have all the information required, and this would take most of the workload from the DMV.
The high school program in Wichita has produced some great basketball players. The City League and coaches teach and nurture them so their skills get better and better. The thanks Wichita gets is that they go play for Lawrence.
I miss movies that I can identify with. Enough of the superheroes, car chases, explosions, computerized characters, raunchy eighth-grade humor, blood and guts, vampires, etc. Give me a story about down-to-earth, real-life people.
