To cast an illegal vote in Kansas, you must first cast a vote. Illegal voters are drawn from the total pool of voters.
The largest demographic among Kansas voters consists of middle-aged and older white Republicans. Statistical principles suggest that this group will supply the largest share of illegal voters.
Sure enough they have. All four of the people whom Secretary of State Kris Kobach has accused of voter fraud belonged to this group.
Never miss a local story.
Remember this when you hear Kobach talking about non-citizens casting illegal votes in Kansas. He hasn’t found one of those yet. Statistical principles suggest he never will.
Recently, I was reading the Gospel of Luke and saw these words of Jesus’: “You did not recognize the time of your visitation from God.”
Many outstanding individuals have graced our world and their contemporaries have not recognized them. Jesus was one of those persons. Standing in a place where he could see the city of Jerusalem, he declared that it wouldn’t be long before the city would be destroyed because the people had not recognized his presence and his teachings.
As I listened to President Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention last week, I had two thoughts:
God, I am going to miss him. Again, a large percentage of his contemporaries “did not recognize the time of our visitation.”
I am not attributing Messiah status to Obama. I’m stating he is really special. Think where we would be if his opponents had worked with him to build a more perfect union.
I don’t think GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump should say much about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s emails until he releases his tax statements. I feel sure they will show he doesn’t pay much, if any, taxes, and the income he reports indicates he is not nearly as rich as he says.
Until he releases his tax statements, I will have questions about anything he says. We don’t need a president like this.
With reference to the July 28 article, “Trump’s Russia remark puts Republicans in an awkward spot,” it’s not true.
The email spot has been glaring at us for quite a while, and it was put out there by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with her 30,000 emails that cannot be found. The FBI can’t even locate them, and the harm has long been done.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump cannot be blamed for Democratic presidential nominee Clinton’s mistakes.
His comment asking the Russians to let us know what the emails say was obviously facetious.
The negligent actions of the former secretary of state were not funny. A negligent staff seems to follow Mrs. Clinton.
The more recent news was that the Democratic National Committee’s files were hacked. It is clear that Hillary Clinton violated the law in her home computer setup. The emails are long gone to whoever may benefit.
The recent dedication of the statue of the woman who disguised herself as a man to be a Buffalo Soldier was interesting (7-23, A7, “Monument to disguised female Buffalo Soldier honored in Leavenworth”).
A classic tour destination has long been the inspirational Buffalo Soldier Monument at Fort Leavenworth. Recently, I set out with a guest and friends for the tour. At the gate, when I told the sentry I was a civilian, we were told we would have to go back to the visitor’s center and obtain a visitor’s day pass.
When we presented our identification there, we were asked whether we had a contact person inside the fort who would verify our arrival at the monument. Because the monument stands tall but mute, we admitted we had no idea who would do that.
We were then told that on orders of the general we could not obtain a visitor’s day pass.
I understand today’s need for security. But this is a monument funded by the public, and people are entitled to view it. I am sure the general, with just a little thought, could find a solution
Kansas City, Kan.
It turns out GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has sacrificed something — his integrity (8-1, A1, “Trump in spat with soldier’s parents”).
