Are you serious about this guy named Engle wanting to execute all the gay people? I would like to know his first name so I can find out more about him. How ridiculous.

WE ARE NOT in terrible financial shape. Seems to me we are ending the years under his tenure with the bills being paid and finally we have some money in the bank. Brownback has a true vision for KS. Some share and accept that vision, some reject it outright because its a truly BOLD change in direction from the path we were on under Sibelius. If her web-sight and Federal take over of our insurance industry is any indication of where we would have been if we continued down that disastrous path then I am grateful for BROWNBACK'S vision and support it. Like any vision, it has to be inspiring and capable of being accomplished. Lets see......bills paid and money in the bank. I think we are headed in a direction worth continuing.

The racists, sexists, homophobes, xenophobes, religious oppressors, war mongers, birthers, deathers and vote suppressors in today's immoral and inhumane Republican Party don't walk alone; they walk in lockstep. What does that say about their claims of Christianity?

Sam's vision for Kansas is an ever widening income gap between rich and poor. The middle class is falling and the rich are gaining in leaps and bounds. More poverty, less funding for schools, colleges, the poor, the court system, more money in the pockets of the very rich. The only thing "trickle down" economics is raining down on us is a yellow fluid. Sam's admitted "experiment" is a catastrophic failure and Kansan's are suffering as a result. So, to respond to Wally's Kool Aid summary, the "bills" are not being paid, they are being eliminated and average Kansan's are being robbed to pay for tax cuts for the Koch brothers. Wage earners are subsidizing the very rich and are at the breaking point. The "money in the bank" is the result of not using the money for the programs it was intended for, such as TANF. There are more kids in poverty and going hungry now than 4 years ago in Kansas. Now Sam wants to sell most of the state office buildings in Topeka to raise quick cash to replace a small part of what the tax cuts have give away to the rich in corporate welfare. Then the state will lease the same buildings back from the new owners, Sam's rich friends. That's another horrible long term strategy for the state.
We cannot afford four more years. It is already going to take the state years if not decades to recover from the damage done in 3 years under Sam.

When will the repubs learn? When they are focused economic conservatism, they win. When they take libertarian stances, they win. But when they decide to be antilibertarians and enforce their civil/religious/educational/se xual/drug views on everyone, they lose. Why? Because everyone with a pulse can see that you can't love freedom and trash freedom at the same time. Guys like Brownback never see that.

TOPEKA
An actor who appeared in a campaign ad for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis was arrested on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute and was once suspended from a position at a Topeka high school for inappropriate behavior with a student, according to documents released by the Kansas Republican Party.

The Davis campaign launched an ad on its website and on television Wednesday intended to address negative advertising by Republican groups. By midafternoon, the video had been taken down.

“We produced a series of ads. Today, it was brought to our attention that a participant in one of those ads has serious issues in his background,” Davis said in a statement.“Upon hearing of these issues, the ad, which ran for a few hours, was pulled down immediately. I want to apologize to Kansans for this mistake.”

The Republican Party released documents that show Jeff Montague, an actor in the ad, had been banned from the Boy Scouts of America in 1989 after the organization learned that he had been suspended from a teaching position at Topeka Seaman High School “for inappropriate conduct with a male foreign exchange student.”

The Boy Scouts got this information from a volunteer at the school. The records show that the school would make no further statement on the allegation other than that Montague had gone on medical leave.

The GOP also released a document from Topeka’s municipal court that showed Montague was arrested on suspicion of “solicitation of sodomy” in October 2007. It included a mugshot of the actor. Records show the actor signed a diversion agreement in the case and paid a $150 fee plus court costs.

“Associating a campaign with someone of this background raises doubts about Paul Davis’ fitness for office,” Clay Barker, the executive director of the Kansas Republican Party, said in a statement.

John Milburn, spokesman for Gov. Sam Brownback, called the ad “disgusting.”

12,000 people have done just that. Job growth is among the lowest in the nation. Tech companies avoid Kansas like the plague. How's that reality working for you ?

Don't let little things like facts get in your way.

http://www.dol.ks.gov/lmis/

"September 2014

Unemployment Rate 4.4%(not seasonally adjusted)"

Nearly two full points under the national average.

....versus....

https://news.tn.gov/node/13085

"Economic Summary

Tennessee's September unemployment rate declined to 7.3 percent after four consecutive months of increasing rates."

You have had near twice the unemployment in Tennessee per capita as we do in Kansas and your state brags that they are finally getting it down to two points OVER the national average .

That alone says Kansas is doing something right.

To your self seving , narrow minded agenda it might be. But your Governor`s plan is to attract businesses and grow the poplation , not a mass exodus.

Really? That's your big shot?

Kansas lost 10k people in 2013 after years of sustained growth and you want to hammer on that?

LOL!

To quote:

"The numbers don’t reveal any information about who left, or why.

“Domestic migration could be anything from retirees going to Florida to military service people being stationed somewhere else,” said Peter Haxton, coordinator of the State Data Center in the State Library of Kansas.“International migration could be anybody – international students coming to study at Wichita State, or people coming here to work from Mexico or India.”

http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/article3...

I suppose we should look at those big Blue state powerhouses that are doing so well.

Like Michigan? Been Blue forever. Democrat Utopia.

Lost 700,000 in population since 2004...Detroit stands as a post apocalyptic ghost town and continues to lose industry, population and wealth.

Kansas lost less people per capita in 2013 than New York, California, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Connecticut.

Most of those are Blue states, my friend.

I said RED states , not blue. Red states have higher poverty rates and people on some form of assistance also.They want to keep you poor enough to be eligible for assistance , then deny those benefits. People like our friend Bill accept this and that is why Feudal systems were the norm in the Middle Ages. Eventually , the peasants revolted. It's just a matter of time before history repeats itself. Plutocracies eventually fail.
