Only in the United States do teachers cheating on a test get seven years in prison and 13 years’ probation. What a waste of time and money. Wait – that is what governments big and small do.
When are the governor and his GOP-fed “Brownback Pack” going to pack their suitcases and head to Leavenworth for their attempted murder of the state of Kansas?
Never miss a local story.
If Dorothy knew Sam Brownback and Charles Koch, she’d be begging the Wizard to let her stay in Oz.
While Sedgwick County commissioners smugly refuse the federal sustainability grants, other communities will use the money we all pay to the feds to improve the lives of their citizens. It’s just like Brownback being proud he didn’t expand Medicaid to the detriment of the poor and hospitals that serve them.
Unions can be good. But generally, like most entrenched bureaucracies, they morph into a parasitic organization that eventually, and inevitably, kills the host. Whether that host is a business endeavor or the government. Then who’s really better off?
Sen. Pat Roberts’ cellphone went off during a Senate hearing playing the Disney tune “Let it Go.” Some people will try anything to score Walt Disney World tickets.
Hey, all you Wichita drivers: It is illegal to pull into the turn lane to merge into traffic. And use your blinkers. That’s what they are there for.
A car that drives itself – now I can take a nap and still get home.
So you would rather ride in an Uber vehicle, with an unknown, unlicensed, untrained, noncommercial driver, than take a cab? Good luck with that.
I just do not understand how a paid suspension is punishment. I always thought that not having to work and still getting paid was a vacation.
Mayor Jeff Longwell says we have a lot of work to do from this point forward. My question is: Where has he been and what has he been doing the past eight years? I know the answer to that, but apparently since he was elected a lot of people don’t.
Hillary Clinton is campaigning on passing a constitutional amendment to stop large amounts of money in politics while she is actively recruiting $2 billion in campaign donations. There is no word for this level of deviousness.
All Republicans need to defeat Hillary is a better alternative, but fat chance of that. Republican tactics are un-American and anti-democratic. Cheating never delivers a rightful winner, so Republicans can’t leverage the gerrymandering that produced an unrepresentative House of Representatives.
Republicans have cut their own throats electorally by leaving our borders open for decades. Across those borders have streamed low-wage workers (for their business cronies), who vote 70 percent against Republicans.
