Kansas cut their taxes last year for individuals and small businesses just like the republicans want to do with house bill 253. Kansas is now facing large budget shortfalls for the upcoming years. So far their thinking that cutting taxes for businesses would bring more companies to the state hasn't panned out. Nixon is simply trying to prevent this from happening in Missouri. We have a 300 million surplus now, but cut 800 million in revenue and you're left with 500 million to make up somewhere. The cuts he announced are what will have to happen IF they override his veto to make up the difference. The state is in process of economic recovery, it's too early to try experimenting with large tax cuts especially considering its been a failure so far in Kansas.

What about the lies Bemboom told? She flat out told Schaefer none of the scanned information was ever given to anyone. Then Highway Patrol comes out saying they did receive a list of Conceal and Carry people and sent to Social Security - twice. How is that fabricating a scandal? If there was nothing to it why did the director resign so quickly?

Guess it's goodbye for me as well. I'll use KRCG and the Columbia newspapers online. It's sad the NT couldn't at least keep the truncated versions free like always. Too many other online free sources for news, leave it to NT to start charging.

Seriously? The mother didn't fail? She left a two year old with a 13 year old boy until 3:55a.m. while her and the 13 year old's mom were "shopping". I feel sorry for the kid babysitting. Both mothers failed miserably.

Since it says "based on performance evaluations" I take it as the top performers will get the bonus, not the top wage earners.

But you have been biased towards certain posters. I have made posts that Graceful's "comments" were sometimes nasty and seething with hate of anyone that doesn't agree with her, and those get removed. Yet she can actually single me out personally as "part of the problem" and that post remained.

I agree 3633. Talk about un-American. Even though I could not stand Bush Jr., he was still my President. Her posts are some of the most disgusting bile I've heard anyone wretch up on here. Disgraceful!

jcguy25 1 year, 8 months ago on Our Opinion: We shortchange mental health services at our peril

The way I see it and from what I read, the mother grew up in the country and was an avid gun collector and shooter. She was pushing him to get involved in "mainstream" life and taking her son to the shooting range was something they could do together. In several articles there have been mentions of Adam having problems other than being shy and introverted from prior babysitter, tech club leader, classmates, and other family. An FBI profiler discussed that this was not a mental "snap", not meaning he didn't have some mental issues, but his actions were planned out in great detail. The choice of an elementary school was to have the most impact and that he would be remembered. The fact that he shot his mother in the face was definitely an indication of a very personal attack on her. Perhaps she was pushing him too hard to be "normal". We may never know all the real reasons, as it was also mentioned he destroyed his computers, down to taking a hammer to the hard drives. He knew they would look there. This was a very intelligent young man, dealing with serious issues apparently nobody understood, except for always being overlooked and in the background. This was a way to get even and get noticed.
