War on Women Met by People’s Filibuster

It was only a matter of time before Texas women put a stop to the War on Women. Everywhere else in America, Republicans have lost elections by restricting access to birth control and abortion and making ignorant remarks about rape. That has been going on in Texas for a long time with no electoral blowback, but that's changed because of the "People's Filibuster."

Obama’s War on Coal Goes to the Senate Floor

So much for the denials. An administration that throughout its 2012 re-election campaign denied it was waging a War on Coal has now come out and publicly declared its intention to shut down coal-fired power plants – putting hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work and sending electricity prices skyrocketing.

Changing KCI and why it won’t work

While most in Great Bend are more familiar with Wichita airport, here in Kansas City there is all kinds of chatter about changes to KCI. There are proposals and counterproposals, commissions formed, press conferences, letters to the editors. All the politicians and columnists who occupy the non-913 section have weighed in. Here is an idea: Ask someone who actually spends time at KCI. Like a frequent traveler. Not a contractor, politician or pointy-headed know-it-all. In other words, me.

Moran’s Memo: Show Your Patriotism Through Service

The Fourth of July is an all-American holiday – a day when communities across the country come together to wave the Red, White and Blue, and commemorate our nation's independence with parades, fireworks and good barbecue. Every Kansas family celebrates in their own special way, but we are all united in our cause for celebration: the many blessings we enjoy as Americans and the sacrifices made in the name of our freedom.

Obama Created Edward Snowden

Here's the problem: Edward Snowden did a great service to American freedom by proving National Intelligence Director James Clapper and NSA Director General Keith Alexander perjured themselves before Congress when they lied about spying on millions of innocent Americans.

Supreme Court Conservatives Shred a Civil Rights Law

John Roberts is a very patient man. Thirty years ago, as a young lawyer in Ronald Reagan's Justice Department, he wrote memos attacking a landmark civil rights law that was enacted to ensure that all Americans, regardless of color, had the right to vote. And on Tuesday morning, as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, he wrote the ruling that shreds the law.

Alien No More

Ear to the ground, everybody. Listen close. You can hear it coming. Could be a while. Might be a bit beat up. Probably won't look like it does now. But eventually those slight puffs of dust in the distance will slide right down Main Street and America will undergo another facelift. And yes, after it's over, the whole country will appear younger and more vital. We might even buy ourselves a red convertible.
