Our free water giveaways, discounted trash rates and propensity to give away the bank to developers and allow them to dictate policy isn't enticing enough? Makes me wonder what other communities are giving away to businesses? I mean, business will always move to where there are no costs, right?

I was always been led to believe by state legislators, chamber of commerce members, and business owners that the environment for businesses was restrictive, over taxed and burdensome. Then I turn around and read about all the corporate welfare and sweet deals businesses seem to get and I wonder how to reconcile the two viewpoints?

Why do conservatives and so called "christian folk" gamble with their moral dollars on fools like Kobach, but wouldn't gamble their real dollars on the same odds? This kind of cognitive dissonance is mind boggling.

The only thing Kobach has been able to prove is that he is inept, doesn't understand procedure, and doesn't understand math/statistics/surveys. No one in their right mind would go out and gamble their own money on a sports team/game with the same record/probability of a win as Kobach has.

I rarely, if ever, agree with Josh. However I believe I have the same sentiment in this situation as he does. Drake may not be liked, or have an untarnished record, but sounds like he may have some grounds here. I am not sure that anyone can really judge his actions that day and make a determination that he and the women involved weren't scared for their lives. Even though the victim and Drake may have been acquaintances, and even though he may have originally been let in, he was asked to leave, and was high on drugs.
Not sure if anyone has dealt with anyone acting erratic on meth? There is no way to predict how the situation will go. I feel like if we have these king of the castle and stand your ground laws in place, then we should observe them. I feel like if we allow the government and police to use the same type of excuses in these situations, that it was a split second decision and that people feared for their lives and no one could understand unless put in that position, then individuals should be allowed the same discretion without fear of a prosecutor inserting their own personal judgement that the situation wasn't as the defendant perceived it.

I know. I usually never click on links from posters like this as I don't want the site to conflate my visit with another individual that "agrees" with them, but recently have done so just out of curiosity. Yesterday I clicked on one for yournewswire.com. After visiting a couple of these sites I completely understand how we got to where we are today. It's no less alarming than the radicalization of US citizens by ISIS/terrorist organization online. It's the exact same thing.

You're posting a link to a blog as if it's fact? I now understand why you view the world the way you do. That link is completely unbiased and I'm sure it's completely factual (sarcasm), opening with this line:
"The erasing of history is a characteristic of leftist totalitarian dictatorships used to reprogram their people much like computer memory is erased prior to reprogramming, and the intolerant left continues its march to erase American history by attacking Southern heritage with the removal of Confederate monuments scattered across the South."

You mean to tell me Jay-Z didn't shape shift into a reptile on a flight like that website claims?

Who cares? The Fritzels are richer and doing much better now. As the community of Lawrence, that is all we care about. I hope we find some more opportunities to give them more money. Maybe we can find a way to give Compton some too, I'm sure he's feeling a little left out. He doesn't even have a golf course or sports park.

Well there is no mechanism for studying the exact type of things you are seeking thanks to the NRA and our bought and paid for legislators, since we are forbidden from compiling statistics on those type of things.
