As long as we make it lucrative to have babies, then people who can’t afford to have kids will continue to have them as a means to obtain money. Our current system encourages exactly the opposite of the behaviors it should encourage.
The gas tank of vehicles is storage important to the industry. Want lower prices? Never fill up; cut the pump off when you’re half full. That cuts total storage in automobile tanks in half and puts pressure on the industry to lower prices for lack of storage. Do the math.

According to some in our Legislature, guns don’t kill people; Republicans who believe in the Second Amendment kill people.
Newt Gingrich finds it disgraceful that everyone stopped noticing how he finds everything disgraceful.
Why don’t we ramp up the Wichita Film Commission?
