Whoa! The people who live in these areas have to live somewhere. If there are tax incentives to tear down their houses they will be bought out, but where will they go? Lawrence doesn't have enough affordable housing now and won't such tax breaks intensify the problem.

Thanks to the League for voicing this rational stand, which I fully support. Alarmist will say, "They want to take away your guns." This is far from true. The League simply wants gun use to be regulated, just as owning and driving a car is regulated or as prescription drugs are.

Voter fraud is a red herring.

Taxing needy families' food while dishing out tax abatements to rich developers is obscene. We need economic development for the poor!

Why stop with Charlie Rose? Dig into some of KU's past chancellors, whose names now grace university buildings.

Do you know how many heath insurance companies operate in the U.S.? Wikipedia has a complete list. These companies are the middlemen, brokering health insurance and profiting enormously. Look up the compensation executives in the companies receive. Then think about who the pigs at the trough really are. Hint: it isn't the poor guys who cannot afford to buy health insurance without government assistance.

I believe that Medicare is the only force holding health care costs down. For example, for cataract surgery on one eye, my doctor billed $2,000. Medicare approved and paid 80% of $500. The hospital and anesthesiologist billed and were paid in a similar fashion.

This and other experiences lead me to believe that Medicare for all would be the best possible health care solution for this nation.

Don't forget his lying about the purpose of a building he constructed in Douglas County. As I recall, he claimed it was only for agricultural purposes when in fact it was constructed as a dwelling.

In Arizona the medical marijuana law also requires that all the marijuana sold must be grown in Arizona. Such a provision provision might help Kansas agriculture make a rebound.
