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.

Independence Day: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Typos

I hope you enjoy your watermelon, fireworks and parades this Independence Day. I'm sort of burned out on the holiday.

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.

No Amendment Will Save Senate Immigration Bill; S. 744 Must Not Pass

To summarize the Senate immigration bill as it heads toward a final vote: illegal immigrants, foreign-born workers, the Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic lobby get everything. Not even crumbs are tossed to American citizens.

Why Was Ex-Marine Brandon J. Raub Held in a Psych Ward?

You come home from serving your country in Iraq or Afghanistan. You're honorably discharged and considering your next job or career. Meanwhile, you also blog and post personal political views and song lyrics on Facebook. You have threatened no one, but that doesn't stop the FBI and police from showing up at your door.

Let’s Have More Wrist Slap Punishments

I'm being facetious when I say that this country needs more wrist-slap punishments, but things have gone to the other extreme far too long.

Six Months Won't Solve Williams' Woes

Brian Williams probably isn't a liar. Based on recent revelations, amplifications and clarifications, he appears to be a serial exaggerator.

What's In a Name?

Just guessing here, but I imagine forecasters at the Weather Channel are embarrassed about having to give winter storms names like "Juno," "Kari" and "Linus." Juno is what they called the almost-big one that hit the Northeast in late January. My radar says marketing gurus, not meteorologists, are behind this nonsense.

Court Can Save Millions from Illegal Obamacare Taxes

The full-court press is on from every organ of enlightened liberal opinion: the Supreme Court must not decide this term's big Obamacare case, King v. Burwell, on the actual legal merits, which are a slam-dunk for the plaintiffs. Instead, supporters of the government want the case decided on the consequences of the Court stopping the flow of illegal subsidies. And they want to ignore the fact that stopping the subsidies will actually free millions of people in opt-out states from the individual and employer mandates. They only want to talk about people who would lose subsidies.
