Yes, the paper was very distrusting of the federal government. Thanks for the link. I will read it.

It’s time to look beyond the politics, and work on substance. The writer has described how silly the state has been in its proposals to the state supreme court. In fact, the state legislature tried to discredit and defund the court. It’s almost like the state legislators do not understand how to fund effective programs.

Throwing money at the schools does not help. We cannot go back to the old funding system. It’s outdated. We have to set up a new funding system for education based on curricula and equity.

Very good summary and focus by Michael Smith.

Yes, this was a great read. If I read it correctly, Federalist 46 described the federal and state military systems, including police, as organizations that protect citizens rights. The states represent citizens better than the federal government. Military members are appointed at all levels. There is no mention of individual rights other than representation.

Now, I am a neophyte in U.S. history. Federalist 46 was interesting to read. How do the Federalist Papers fit into our history and governance?

I'm game for corporate tax cuts, but not personal tax cuts. There's no justification. Personal tax cuts will not stimulate the economy.

Tom, I interpreted Josh's comments differently. Regardless of the issue, most of the Kansas voters do support our representatives. Lawrence really is in a bubble. Opinions here are not shared elsewhere in the state. The only time I can recall common ground is when Greg Orman, an independent, ran for senator.

Yes, this looks good.

Should we call these budget requests “new funding” or “restored funding”?

Mark Zuckerberg is young, intelligent, and eccentric. Why would we expect him to act in some average way?

How and why did the right to bear arms become a big issue? I had no opinions before all this?
