Candidates that spend the most seem the more successful..

at being elected..

Doesn't it say something about a society that allows a higher quantity
of media bullshit, affect their political choices? Why doesn't a persons past
and present, effectively presented in a few tv and new-sites, get
the job done?

Olathe candidate for Kansas House seat is arrested, charged with election perjury

Source: Wichita Eagle

An Olathe man running for a seat in the Kansas House of Representatives was arrested Thursday on a charge of election fraud.

Adam T. Thomas, 35, who is the Republican candidate for the 26th District House seat, is charged in Johnson County District Court with election perjury.

A spokeswoman for Kris Kobach, the Kansas Secretary of State who has made fighting supposed voter fraud a central role of his time in office, declined to comment.

Guy looks to be wrapped in a straight jacket...Fantastic
new chic for a nutty rightwing handjob..

All Right!

A forum for us country folk...
Tell you what folks..I have mixed feelings
living in kansas now..The extremely conservative
attitudes that have the state by the b#$lls wasn't
on my radar growing up...And the reason for
that is that there weren't any attitudes like that
growing up! Sure, people wanted less govt interference,
that's typical for an ag community...And a smaller less
expensive govt along with lower taxes..But you know
something? Even when those things were happening,
we understood the necessity...yes people bitched and
whined about these things when the grew
out of proportion, but they always seemed to be in a
"we'll get it done differently next election" type of
opinion...There wasn't the bickering and downright
dangerous actions by people like nowadays...
People need to grow up....act like adults...

This one has me stumped...

3 - 4 years ago I bought an Acer Aspire..AXC-704G-UW61.
It had windows 10 and it worked lousy...so I put it away and
bought an Acer AXC-603G-UW 30...windows 8.1, Works fine.
So I wanted to fire up the 704G to see what files I might
have created and couldn't get past the windows login
screen..Forgot the password...Tried many ways to get
to a password reset screen...no luck..can't get past the
request for a password..tried to;

Restart your Acer laptop, press on the Alt and F10 key at the same time when power on. 4. Then you have three options to choose to reset your Acer laptop to factory default: Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults; Restore Operating System and Retain User Data; or Reinstall Drivers or Applications.

No luck...Password reset disk...no luck...Just a screen asking for a psswrd...



Nasty asthma since getting over the flu back in February..Went to
an asthma/immunologist and they said I needed to start taking
a steroid..and started me on symbicort. They gave me some
samples after I said I couldn't afford it..350 to 400$ for the
160/4.5...I also started going a pulmonary clinic...they agreed
on the need for what they call a controller...I could go a couple
of ways to afford symbicort...enroll in the medicare, plan D...drugs, this
coming october and or try the canadian online drug company's,
which I did...Doc said he has heard favorable reviews from some
of his patients that are doing this too. Guess I will see..
Is anyone taking symbicort or another type of asthma steroid?
Is it helping...I've yet to notice any differences to my breathing

Which way is the nfl headed?

Tag football or more injury's?


Helmet Rule Will Change the NFL, But Only If the League Can Figure It Out

Let's start with something many of us can agree on: Malcolm Jenkins walloped Brandin Cooks in the Super Bowl.

It's a famous hit, and a vicious one. No flag was thrown, but the tens of millions of fans who saw it wouldn't have been surprised if there was one. It was a borderline play, the kind that should serve as a benchmark as the NFL implements its new use-of-the-helmet policy.

Under the new rules, which are meant to completely eliminate crown-of-helmet contact, the famous Jenkins-Cooks collision would appear to be a good template for an unnecessary roughness penalty.

Um, maybe not.


"We put the Malcolm play up [on a video screen] on our own," Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham said. "One ref said it was illegal, and one ref said legal."


As the season approaches, the new rule threatens to decide games and result in fines, ejections and suspensions for collisions that were previously considered routine, or even textbook examples of proper technique.


"How I'm taking it, they're just trying to protect us from the missile-type hits," Giants linebacker Kareem Martin said in early August. "From a player-safety standpoint, that's safer for everybody, from the player getting hit to the player delivering the hit."


Then the preseason games began and the flags flew abundantly and nigh-randomly. Officials called 51 use-of-helmet penalties in the first two weeks of the preseason, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk, a rate that extrapolates to 396 new penalties this season. A grand majority of those calls were on defensive players, many of them for routine-looking, not-too-intense tackles.


"There is no “make adjustment” to the way you tackle. Even in a perfect form tackle the body is led by the head. The rule is idiotic And should be dismissed immediately. When you watch rugby players tackle they are still lead by their head. Will be flag football soon...."...R. Sherman

Trump issues 4-word reply after criticism at McCain, Franklin funerals

Source: faux news.

President Trump issued a four-word reply Saturday after several speakers at weekend funerals for singer Aretha Franklin and U.S. Sen. John McCain made him a focus of their remarks.

“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” the president tweeted around 7 p.m. ET.

“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”

The traitor seems to be saying Meghan McCain, daughter of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain
doesn't know what she is talking about...

Kris Kobach wins support from labor union that previously backed Democrats..

Four years ago, the Kansas State Council of Firefighters endorsed Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, running against then-Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican. Now, the union is endorsing firebrand conservative and Donald Trump loyalist Kris Kobach.

Kobach, Kansas’ Republican secretary of state and a candidate for governor, won the union’s endorsement Friday, though labor unions typically back Democrats. He announced the endorsement in Wichita, saying it was — as he understood — the first time in his lifetime the union endorsed a Republican. He was the only Republican to address the labor union’s annual conference earlier this summer.



Kansans drank contaminated water for years. The state didn't tell them.

Don't know how to approach this article..reprehensible,
and irresponsible non-action? Criminal non-action?
This will keep people from coming to kansaas..Whether
just visiting or relocating for a job..If the safety of
water is questionable..?

Editor’s note: The Hufmans’ well was contaminated with two chemicals that can form as dry cleaning fluid breaks down. An earlier version of the article incorrectly stated the type and level of the contamination.

The state allowed hundreds of residents in two Wichita-area neighborhoods to drink contaminated water for years without telling them, despite warning signs of contamination close to water wells used for drinking, washing and bathing.

In 2011, while investigating the possible expansion of a Kwik Shop, the state discovered dry cleaning chemicals had contaminated groundwater at 412 W. Grand in Haysville.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment didn’t act for more than six years.

It didn’t test private wells less than a mile away. Nor did it notify residents that their drinking wells could be contaminated with dry cleaning chemicals, known as perchloroethylene, so they could test the water themselves.

“We didn’t find out for 7 years,” said Joe Hufman, whose well was contaminated by a Haysville dry cleaner. “Haysville knew it. KDHE knew it. Kwik Shop knew it.”

Leo Henning, who is the director of environment for the KDHE, said the state acted as soon as it found out that the contamination had reached the drinking water wells.

“The Kansas Department of Health and Environment takes seriously its obligation to protect Kansans from environmental contamination. It’s important to note that as soon as the agency learned that water contamination found in the Haysville area was in the path of privately-used water wells, on July 17, 2017, affected residents were immediately notified, and alternate water supplies were offered,” he said in a written statement. “We want residents to feel confident in the safety of the water they drink but should those who utilize well water question their supply, we encourage them to have their wells tested. And if contamination is detected, please notify us right away, so that we can address the issue.”

A similar delay had happened at least once before, at a dry cleaning site near Central and Tyler in Wichita, where the state waited more than four years between discovering contamination nearby and notifying residents of more than 200 homes.

Some fear it could happen again at 22 contaminated sites where the state has not checked for people on well water — or that it could happen at a yet unknown site of contamination.

Kansans aren’t required to use city water if they already have a well, and some Wichita neighborhoods still rely on private well water.

The delays stem from a 1995 state law that places more emphasis on protecting the dry cleaning industry than protecting public health.

The Kansas Drycleaner Environmental Response Act was passed at the request of the dry cleaning industry to protect the small businesses from the potentially crippling cost of federal involvement. The Environmental Protection Agency, through its Superfund program, can pay to clean up water pollution and then bill any and all companies ever associated with the property to recover its money. Cleaning up pollution can easily cost millions of dollars; state law limits the liability of a dry cleaning shop to $5,000.

To raise money to investigate and clean up pollution, the state passed a tax on dry cleaning chemicals. While the KDHE supported the bill, one KDHE official warned the Legislature that a tax on cleaning solvent “would not be sufficient funding.”

The Legislature passed the law, including a line that directed the KDHE not to look for contamination from dry cleaners. The Legislature also directed the KDHE to “make every reasonable effort” to keep sites off the federal Superfund list.

It was a 2011 investigation in Haysville for Kwik Shop that discovered the dry cleaning chemical perchloroethylene (usually abbreviated PCE and also known as tetrachloroethylene) in groundwater higher than the level the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency deems safe to drink.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says it initially gave the Haysville site a low priority, assuming the contaminated groundwater was traveling southwest — away from private wells and in a different direction than Cowskin Creek.

It wasn’t until 2017 that KDHE realized groundwater was actually flowing to the southeast: directly along the creek and directly toward a cluster of private drinking wells. For the most part, the underground contamination follows Cowskin Creek, trailing down from a former dry cleaner on West Grand Avenue until past 83rd Street and into the cul-de-sac that Hufman calls home.

For the 25 years they lived in that house, Hufman, his wife and daughter drank the well water. They don’t know when the contamination reached them.

The Hufmans’ well was found to be contaminated with two chemicals formed when dry cleaning fluid breaks down.

When consumed, PCE can build up over time, potentially harming a person’s nervous system, liver, kidneys and reproductive system.

Exposure for long periods may cause changes in mood, memory, attention, reaction time and vision. Studies have suggested that the chemical might lead to a higher risk of bladder cancer, multiple myeloma or non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The City of Haysville completed hooking up around 200 homes to city water in July.

Hufman says he doesn’t know why people on his cul-de-sac outside of Haysville weren’t notified about the contamination years ago, even if officials thought it was moving in a different direction. They now know their street was hit the worst of any — at least three of the street’s wells are contaminated over the EPA limit.

“You think they would have notified everybody, taken some precautions until something was done,” Hufman said. “Instead, they all kept quiet. They didn’t let anybody know about the contamination, so we all continued to drink the water.”

Only number 7?

Goodness gracious....And here I thought kansaas had no peers
screwing the states citizens...Wanna bet kohack is salivating over
the possibilities? Lord we need a liberal governor in the worst way..


Lawmakers in this state don’t want you to know anything about their process.
7. Kansas
Sam Brownback, governor of Kansas
In many ways, Kansas (an obvious F) provides an examples on how not to run a government. Governor Sam Brownback has presided over one of the most corrupt administrations in memory, with lobbyists spilling out of his office and ex-employees landing fat jobs once their time in government ended. Kansas is worst (50th) in internal audits. Meanwhile, its policy on making and passing laws — as well as hiding information — stands as a disgrace to democracy.
