Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is an incredibly weak candidate and not fit for any office, much less the presidency.
The only thing she has going for her is she is a Democrat.
She cannot even put away a 74-year-old socialist senator, who is her only competition.
Never miss a local story.
Clinton has nothing on her resume that shows she has improved this country or even the status of women in this country through all her decades of public service.
Even some Democrats agree with many Republicans.
Vote ABC (anyone but Clinton).
Because Kansas seems to have so much money that the state doesn’t have to tax 330,000 businesses and farmers, people would think the state would make the taxes on pensions fair for all retirees.
It seems to be a little known fact that the only retirees’ pensions that are taxed in Kansas are on people retired from private companies.
Military pensions, railroad pensions and government workers’ pensions are not taxed in Kansas, but private company pensions are taxed.
I think it is time to make the taxes on pensions the same for all retirees in Kansas.
The universities in Kansas requested and received tuition increases of at least 4 percent for 2016-17.
At the University of Kansas, tuition will be $4,789 a semester for instate students next year. That is contrasted with tuition of about $2,700 a semester in 2005.
Can someone please explain to me how tuition in Kansas has gone up nearly 75 percent in 10 years?
What cost factors have driven this increase?
While the cost of food has increased by 32 percent according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the cost of tuition has jumped 75 percent?
If we knew that answer, maybe we could determine whether higher education remains a good investment.

Not so green KC
Less than a year ago, I moved to Kansas City from Independence. I had spent nine years recycling, which I believe in doing.
Now I live in an apartment for senior citizens and people with disabilities. I became aware that curbside recycling is not available.
I have kept up my recycling, although it has become a burden.
I don’t have a proper place to keep recyclables, and management expects us to be responsible by practicing proper disposal and not encouraging roach contamination.
Keeping boxes and bags of cans, paper and plastics on my kitchen floor is only asking for insect problems.
I strongly protest the lack of services to all residences.
In the future, for many reasons, I won’t be able to transport my recyclables. I am deeply dismayed that I will have to trash items that could be recycled.
I investigated the Kansas City website and saw the efforts being made to make KC green. It is not comprehensive enough and should include all its citizens.
We should all be allowed to do our part, especially those of us who lack transportation, are disabled and live in apartments.
Kansas City, please expand your vision and services for a greener city.
I apologize for the smear campaign the lame-stream media have launched against you. All for the crime of doing your job.
I write to you to share my appreciation for your work.
I admire your dedication to maintaining a high level of integrity in Kansas.
As a woman, I value the travails you suffer regulating my body so I don’t have to think about it.
It gives me more time to wait in school restrooms, watching for those transgender-ifieds.
Some dislike your cuts to higher education, but how can you value what you haven’t worked for?
As for raising taxes, it’s not very Christ-like to steal from the blessed to give to the needy (read as lazy).
Luckily, your welfare bill saved them from wasting their (read as our) money on frivolous cruises.
I thank you for fulfilling Kansas’ destiny to be a glistening beacon of conservatism in this dreary Demo-brat-ic republic.
Without you, we might never have made such progress.
May the sun shine bright upon you.
