So the new Southeast High School is going to reinvent itself and focus on preparing students for college and for the workplace. Now, there’s a concept.
Almost every mass shooting has been in a gun-free zone, many at universities. Those people railing against concealed campus carry are the same ilk who rely on 911 for personal safety. Cops always get there after the killings occur.
With Donald Trump, there’s a chance that health care will get fixed. With Hillary Clinton, not so much.
George Bush committed war crimes and created the worst prison camp in modern history, and that is OK with most Republicans. Hillary Clinton used a personal e-mail server as secretary of state, and she should be tortured and sent to prison, according to these same Republicans.

Brownback said Trump’s popularity is due to the people’s anger at Obama. Could this anger have anything to do with a do-nothing Congress? How about governors whose only goal is to further their ideology rather than the good of the people? It’s so easy for Brownback to find someone to blame.
Kansas doesn’t have a spending problem, it has a leadership problem. Our leaders blindly invest in the well-being of business but not in our people.
No politician should be “doing things for women,” “doing things for blacks,” “doing things for Mexicans.” It is not the role of government to do anything for any special interest anything. Its role is infrastructure and national defense to serve all Americans.
So, black lives matter? I thought all lives mattered.
I’m looking forward to new songs by AC/DC. I’m sure Axl Rose will do fine.
