A SECOND OPINION, The Kansas City Star   The Trump administration is all too willing to cut Medicaid benefits and the number of people receiving them. They've signaled this for one thing by allowing states to end retroactive eligibility and to impose work requirements. Their overall...

GUEST COLUMN, Dick Morris   What if Bobby Kennedy survived Sirhan Sirhan’s shot in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel on June 5, 1968? What if he went on to challenge Vice President Hubert Humphrey and Sen. Eugene McCarthy for the Democratic presidential nomination? What if the eventual...

L&T Publisher Earl Watt   A question I get asked a lot about politics is, “When did we become so polarized?” It’s something that I’ve thought a lot about, too, and there is no easy answer. I do believe there are some instances that have pushed us away from the middle to the outer...

GUEST COLUMN, Dave Trabert, Kansas Policy Institute   The Kansas House of Representative just voted to allow another income tax hike, but at least they declined an online sales tax proposal that would have created havoc for many retailers and fueled more government growth. A...

GUEST COLUMN, Larry Phillips, Kismet   I heard some people didn’t like me calling President Obama a racist. Funny, I don’t remember asking permission to tell the truth. He’s a proven racist – proven multiple times when he interjected himself into racial incidents and was proven wrong by...

GUEST COLUMN, Dan Backer, political.law   From Stormy Daniels to allegations of Russian collusion, the left-leaning mainstream media is determined to derail the Trump presidency. A recent, typically biased CNN headline reads: “Trump’s boss act doesn’t always work.” For every...

MY PERSPECTIVE, Gary Damron   Two weeks ago, I mentioned pumps in the fields, some standing idle. There could be several reasons they’re not working: a malfunction, they might not have a source of power, or it could be that they don’t reach deep enough anymore to be productive.  A...
