"I will tell the people what's going on at the statehouse. I'm going to treat the capitol as a borderline crime scene. ... If businesses don't have to pay taxes, the burden should not be on those trying to feed themselves." - The Valley Falls Vindicator & Oskaloosa Independent, March 3, 2016.

Across Kansas the top 1% are looting and on-the-loose, pitting us against each other. Communities in Jefferson County need to democratically prepare themselves for food and energy autonomy.

GET'EM REGISTERED


The Kansas legislature is beginning the 2016 session this week and the old issues with the same time-worn remedies from the same old faces will take place like a long boring parade in the rain.

The same rich bullies who buy politicians, as livestock at an auction, will be having their elected gangsters confuse you in wasted time over abortion, gay rights, guns and religion.

Remember this while arguing over these social non-issues: last year the largest tax increase on food sales was legalized, and the year before employers had themselves made tax-free from any money made while you were on their jobs.

What do these old clowns of the failed Kansas Republican Party who rule this legislature fear most?

Big Hint: The fact that only 36% of 18-24 year old Kansans are registered to vote and only 14% vote.

This number is far below the national average in voter registration and participation among college-age Kansans. Our state ranks 45 in the number of registered 18-24 year olds.

Young voting age Kansans, let’s stop their Topeka hunger games, and register to vote before Election Day 2016.
