Not The Mummy

Boo!

It won't be scary when John Fairfield's your mayor!

WITH SO MUCH AT STAKE, IT IS AMAZING THAT ELECTION VERIFICATION IS BASED GENERALLY ON THE HONOR SYSTEM WITH MINIMAL SAFE-GAURDS IN PLACE. WITH BOTH SIDES NOT TRUSTING EACH OTHER AS FAR AS THEY CAN THROUGH 'EM (AND AN ELEPHANT DOESN'T GO FAR), YOU WOULD THINK SOME REAL ELECTION REFORM COULD BE PASSED TO PREVENT THE FILING OF TENS OF THOUSAND OF FRAUDULENT ABSENTEE BALLOTS, DEAD PEOPLE VOTING, OR OTHERWISE ELECTION DAY SHINNANIGANS.

YOU CAN'T EVEN GET PEOPLE NOT TO STEAL AN EXTRA COOKIE OUT OF THE COOKIE JAR WHEN YOU'RE NOT LOOKING, YET ALONE A JOB THAT WILL MAKE YOU MILLIONS OF DOLLARS...THIS SO CALLED DEMOCRACY'S GOT REAL ISSUES.

HOW ABOUT AT LEAST SPOT CHECKING THE ABSENTEE BALLOTS?

This article is hilarious! Apparently the Republican in Missouri's 48th District is the landlord of his political consultant!

Missouri Republicans: Too busy to stand up for Working Class America; but not too busy to rent homes to and fill the wallets of, their political consultants!

Enough is Enough.Vote Democrat

I am working class and I feel that State Rep Will Kraus has represented me very well in his first term. He is available, he is a good listener and he is not someone who aspires to be a career politician.

What? Liberals never employ political consultants (we'll ignore Mike Sanders' recent campaign) or own rental properties (we'll ignore slum landlords and such)?

LiberalBrooksideRules!

"Career Politicians" the talking point of Republicans.

Sure the guy is a "career politician"! Didn't he run for an office before and lose? I'm sure once he loses on Tuesday he'll make plans to run for another office. Because he's a "Career Politician".

LiberalBrooksideRules, Did you notice that Of course "Anon" 3pm danced around the point!!
That guy puts a whole new definition to being "In Bed" with your consultants. Being a Republican, and Renting your place to your Republican Consultant officially disqualifies you from being "Independent".

RaySouthVoter

Reading the Raytown Progressive Website it says that this guy hired Axiom Strategies, so we know who "Anon" 2:57pm is.

Therefore, The guy better be available to you if he's paying your rent.

Also 2:57, Driving through Raytown, KC & Lee's Summit, it looks like A LOT of people disagree.

Bush Moves Toward Martial Law
Frank Morales | October 26, 2006

In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law (1). It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President's ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush is seeking to undo those prohibitions.

It's really interesting that even with all the weblinks, youtubes, and audiofiles on here that no one has changed my party affiliation.

I am amazed that the Republican Will Kraus, although he wont claim he's a Republican from all the pieces I have received, is now using his son on his literature with his home phone, pictures and name. That's pretty irresponsible and pathetic.

How about a candidate who has his twin brother campaign?

What is a Democrat? Is it the same in Missouri as in New York? Are Katheryn Sheilds and Mike Sanders both Democrats?

What is a Republican? Is it the same in Missouri as in New York? Are Gov Matt Blunt and Mayor Bloomberg both Republicans?

Party labels are outmoded and virtually meaningless.

So Moreno (one of the twins?) is a Dem and Kraus is a Rep? What's the deal out there in R-town?

Both candidates in the 48th race have twin brothers.

9:51 is right, both candidates have twin brothers!! Sucks to be 8:34 and sound like an idiot.

kathryn shields reminds me of the quintessential greedy, profligate spending, self-absorbed, ineffective, public trough feeding PIG!! just let her run for mayor of kansas city; she'll be shredded to ribbons by those that have values, maturity, knowledge, and something to offer. she is in the same camp as the mindless cheerleader we have for a mayor now. kay barnes, and her gang of monkey-faced advisors, is a weak-spined, insipid, rah-rah buffoon who has left us with a mountain of debt and a list of "legacy-building" projects whose merits and value are, at best, questionable. in both cases, barnes and shields, good riddance to bad rubbish.

Funny how articles like Bob Luder's (Star 10/31, C-4) seem to magically appear just before something important, such as the vote in Johnson County on the ridiculous soccer complex. It reminds of those weepy, tear-jerkers about Derrick Thomas that appeared last year around the time of the vote for the latest inductees into the NFL Hall of Fame. We all know that Derrick Thomas was an irresponsible serial impregnator and murderer with no moral compass whatsoever, and has no place in any hall of fame. He will be denied induction again this year. My sense is that those columns are plants, and I feel the same about Luder's.

We can correctly define "soccer moms" as (mostly) white, unemployed trophy wives with too much time on their hands, and who think it is important to fill their kid's lives with as much busy-busy activity as possible so as to be able to brag to their like-minded female units at the tanning salon...or shopping mall...or mindless dinner party. They conveniently forget about letting their kids be kids, as this doesn't fit into the oh-so-tres-chic Johnson County life of non-stop "involvement," conspicuous consumption, material gain, rampant consumerism, and vicarious living through their child's life.

Stated simply, these women are nothing more than outlets for their husband's money, and they spend their time driving hither and yon in their tacky SUV's doing this or that and thinking they are making a contribution. That there are so many of these bottle blonde, too tan, too thin walking ciphers may contribute to the conventional wisdom that their "vote" carries weight. Nothing could be further from the truth.

These people are all about themselves and have absolutely no grasp on the real issues of real life, specifically how to craft in their child a responsible citizen. They are light years past that themselves. Let's hope that enough of these nincompoops will be in the nail parlor on November 7th to insure that this stupid, ego-filled scam (from the Wizards) goes down to a resounding defeat.

Bwaahahaha! Don't flatter yourself, kid. We'd PREFER the single-minded, obstuse and under-educated STAY to the right, please!

You ARE one of the best spoken, most logical of the Righties, here. As you are a HS sophomore that says a LOT about your political peer group...
