A four-star general hands over top-secret information to his girlfriend for her book, gets caught, cops a plea, schmoozes a probation and a fine. Anyone else goes to Leavenworth making small rocks out of big rocks for 30 years.
There’s a reason the big liberal newspapers, including the New York Times, are throwing Hillary Clinton under the bus now. They don’t think that her criminality will be kept under cover for the next year and a half.
Never miss a local story.
Before voting for Hillary Clinton, ask yourself if you want to lose more liberties and more money.
It certainly gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling to know that our beloved Koch brothers are in the market to buy the next president.
So we can track sex offenders, and send someone out to verify addresses and check identities, but we can’t do the same with illegal aliens? What if a sex offender is an illegal alien? Can you still check his identity then?
Today’s economics test question: If a fast-food restaurant has two employees working and earning today’s minimum wage, how many employees will be working in that restaurant if the minimum wage is $15 an hour? Answer: zero, because that restaurant will have gone out of business.
If the guy flipping my burger gets $15 an hour, they better raise my clerical salary to the same.
So the same people who plunged Kansas into debt with extreme tax cuts, and who got our credit rating downgraded, are going to teach poor families how to manage their money? This should work out well.
State lawmakers can take pride in the fact that national media, talk-show hosts and political pundits are ridiculing restrictions placed on the use of welfare funds by Kansans. It proves that our state leads the nation in decency and common sense. Kansas rocks.
I wonder if Gov. Sam Brownback ever limited how AirTran and then Southwest Airlines could spend their yearly corporate welfare check from Kansas taxpayers. Or have they been free to spend their nearly $5 million a year as they please?
So the Department for Children and Families, which Brownback created to promote people getting off of public assistance, hires a person who was on public assistance and then points her out as an example of the agency’s success. The sun is indeed shining.
The new conservatives promised to run the state government “more like a business.” OK, good. But what business owner or CEO would deliberately slash their income first, and then slash every department’s budget in order to survive the cuts? That’s idiotic, not businesslike at all.
So does having the government intrude more into our lives shrink the government? Or is that just not OK when Washington does it? I know we hate teachers here, but can we find one to teach me the difference?
