The Giants’ Madison Bumgarner is truly a great pitcher. But was it just my biased imagination, or did he seem to get the call every time the ball was anywhere near the strike zone? Whatever the case, Kansas City had a great season and postseason.
Securing the border is a good intention, but how about securing the state? It would be easier to find and remove the tens of thousands of illegal aliens living in Kansas than to try to get the federal government to secure the border.
You can send out surveys and have meetings and all that, but if you do not listen then it is a waste of time. The sales tax was written by city officials for what they wanted and then put on the ballot as one item instead of four.
Our free-spending city leaders pour money into all sorts of programs, consultants and unnecessary projects, and now they’re coming to the people asking for a sales tax to cover their backsides because of their lack of fiscal responsibility. I don’t think so. It’s time to replace city leaders.
Intrust Bank Arena has not been able to produce the number or type of shows people want, so now the county may put $200,000 more into the pot to not be able to produce the number or type of shows people want. “Lipstick on a pig” comes to mind.
Some say gasoline prices have fallen because the Saudis have increased production to maintain market share. I propose a tariff on imported oil. Take the revenue to fund renewable energy and promote domestic oil and gas production. Being energy independent will make a safer and more prosperous nation.
I’m trying to think of one retired senator or congressman from Kansas who actually lives here. They say they want to fight for Kansas values, but then when they retire Kansas isn’t good enough for them. It’s news when our beloved Bob Dole comes back to visit.
