Regardless of who killed those people.

There will be a response.

If it was Ukrainian military, if it was Russian military, if it was some guy sitting on an AA gun:

      Justice will be served.

A Kansans S.O.S

Well, it has been a while. Glad you are all still reading.

This is in regards to local (Kansas) news. Ladies and gentlemen, the state of Kansas is under duress.

Governor Brownback has decreased income taxes in the state, which could be potentially regarded a "generalized positive". However, the governor did this absent any real plan to make the state fiscally solvent. For 2013, personal income tax rates drop from 3 brackets at 3.5, 6.25, and 6.45 percent to two universal tax rates at 3 and 4.9%. While in a general sense, I am an avid supporter of flat income tax, this legislation is entirely devoid of reality;

   1; The governor cut income taxes, knowing that the state sales tax rate was to regress from 6.3 percent to 5.7% roughly a year after the bill "passed" (quotation used for purpose). Unless the governor planned on cutting roughly 10% of the state budget, he would have to find a way to finance state functions. Funding is especially important to the state judiciary (which has rebuked Governor Brownback in regards to education cuts). The Governor has subsequently put his "supporters" on the issue of judicial appointment (current system; non-partisan selection committee, Brownback; he has all the say.)

   2; Roughly one year after the governor "passed" his tax cuts, he found the way to make up the difference in the state budget. The state sales tax had been set at 6.3% in 2010 by appointed Governor Mark Parkinson to offset a budget shortfall. The rate was set to fall to 5.7% on July 1, of this year (2013). Herein lies the Governor's ultimate "bargain".

The Governor cut taxes on everybody in the state; in theory, great. But, the Governor raised (and he did raise) the sales tax back to 6.15%.
However, the problem lies in the fundamentals. How a poverty-ridden family, with two kids, and minimum wage job is expected to pay at the same rate as someone who buys a boat is absolutely unacceptable (since a surtax was rejected last fall...).

Whether Kansas is willing to accept it or not, Governor Brownback is not here for Kansas. He showed that when capable; he used his influence to "direct" (quotation used for purpose) his supporters to challenge moderate Republicans in Kansas. The same group that produced Bob Dole, and Nacy Kassebaum; was effectively exterminated by those who saw Sam Brownback as the "savior" of the state Republican party....Governor Brownback does not represent what was "Kansas".

Gary Johnson 2012

 Now that Romney and his powers that be have successfully hijacked their party, it is time for Paul supporters to rally behind Governor Gary Johnson. Putting Dr. Paul's name as a write-in will not mean anything, most states will discard them at the end of the election. But Gary Johnson is out there, carrying on the message of liberty, sound fiscal policy, and constitutionalism. Come November, vote for Gary Johnson and end the corrupt two-party lie.

If we are the richest, most affluent, most privileged society in the world, why can so few afford to be a part of it?

Sorry for taking so long.

I have been rather busy with classes.

Don't worry, plenty of issues will be discussed soon!

History tells us this; those who are remembered are the one who stood their ground, the ones who fought the established order, or the ones who developed out of seemingly thin air.

Then why is it the ones who listened, evaluated, and compromised that society truly owes its existence to?

The derision many in society have today of themselves they are cold and selfish. Why then do we as a society encourage this behavior through the polarization of ourselves at every turn?

 Have we really come to the point in society where nothing but perfection is acceptable?

The answer is yes. We as a society strive for perfection; and look down upon anything that does not meet a pre-conceived notion of what perfection is. We see it everywhere. We are told what perfection does, looks like, sounds like. 

Is this a new thing? No; mankind has always aimed towards perfection. Whether it be a case today where perfection is determined by who has the best looks, most money, or the best ideas; or if it is examined from a historical perspective where the same values still hold true.

What is the point? 

We are not perfect. We will never be perfect. 


Perfection is individual. 

Perfection is universal

Perfection is US.
