Back Scratching??? Does Ms. Deckman’s “The many special powers and privileges the government grants corporations, such as limited liability and perpetual lifespan, make limiting their political power essential” -- sound familiar? Her disdain of "corporations" is asking for one corporation to constitutionally control another – those we elect after a single term are pensioned for life, enact social, healthcare even some civil law for the masses from which they are exempt. Egotistically many are interested only in perpetuating a career unavailable to the rest of us. ----- Government is the more dangerous of the “TWO” corporations in a free society Ms. Deckman!

Re: Women’s health rights “Backwoods Brownback” should be the first anti-abortion MALE politician Science succeeds in implanting an unwanted fetus –- wouldn’t take long for all his “keepum” barefoot and pregnant Macho Male big mouth friends from jumping ship or “Noah’s Ark.” All those $$$$$ he saves Kansans now by closing Planned Parenthood and health services will be needed after he’s gone to put the new “Anchor baby citizens” though College that he forced Illegal mothers to birth!

The Sex / Link lead-in to the Shirley Lewis commentary has to be a misnomer. --------------------------------- From campaign rhetoric Santorum would likely be the product of an immaculate conception free of sin or physical need other than his God given egotistical obsession to rule the World ---- His coronation at a brokered Grand old “PARISH” convention could only signal the demise of a ONCE proud conservative political party. – Santorum represents a theocracy incompatible with less government or the individual rights indicative of TRUE conservatism. Already shackled by last supper republicans hoping to replace a catastrophic Obama administration they are at WAR within a Party where religious “Nutcases” will not accept one of their own as a prime candidate because that person, Mitt Romney is a Mormon! Santorum’s God before government promises cannot appeal to moderates of ANY political affiliation or persuasion in a Secular Society. Santorum is a Born again LOSER ---- We are in need of a THIRD PARTY!!

Jessica Deamer ---“Women’s contraceptive coverage is an issue that should concern neither men nor religion." I agree Ms. Deamer and once medical science allows those Bishops with those fancy Dunce caps to assume the pregnancies of soon to be unwanted and unloved children they’ll retreat to the Pulpit and their macho male lemmings to the Church loft singing in the choir --- A Secular Government that once provided the Pious protection from the STATE is now in need of protection FROM the Pious!

For Ms. McDowell ----------------- a repost “Poor me Poor Us” --- Lewis Diuguid along with counterpart Mary Sanchez do best what the Liberal Media does best -- to excuse more government aide and assistance deserved or undeserved to minorities by embarrassing or instilling guilt to past abuse by the majority. – Both columnists seem to have achieved relative success in a chosen profession within what they depict as a “hostile” society but somehow continuously demean the system that has allowed their success. -- What can be disconcerting is although racial discord still exists in America their knowledge and capabilities could be far more appreciated if directed to the source, the culture or well-being of those they so often defend or seek to improve in this Country. Diuguid chronicling the plight of African Americans could “migrate” and address the overwhelming education and health problems rampant IN AFRICA and Sanchez’s teachings and concerns for Latino respect and democratic principles could contribute her experience and editorial skills to some Weekly Rag in a gun wielding, hostage killing country south of the border!

Micheline Burger --- MainStream Coalition Theocrats can only guarantee a healthy afterlife Ms. Burger -- Your wish to stop gender-based health care discrimination by religious leaders will fall on deaf ears --This and similar issues again have tainted our political process and threaten the cohesiveness we depend on in times of stress.We are edging closer to the third world theocratic nonsense that endangers not only those who practice it but any who value personal freedom! The latest contraceptive “flap” is an exercise in Irony ---- Tax-Free churches and religious conglomerates claim a violation of separation of church and state when asked to adhere to the same insurance and contraceptive benefits offered by private employers in a supposedly “secular nation” then demand the Taxes of their faithful followers be exempt from any government funding of Planned Parenthood a “public” non-profit health and reproductive service because it provides abortion. --- Yet while they exist and accept the “blessings” of a free society their Zealots exhibit no hesitation or remorse in abandoning the care and financial burden of unwanted and uncared for infants to neighbors or compatriots that do not share a religious dogma that allows forced birthing! Mindful of Walt Kelly’s oft quoted POGO cartoon character “We have met the enemy and they is us”

Margaret Hogan ---------------------- The faithful have been murdering one another in the name of their particular deity or fantasies from the beginning of time. – With guarantees of an afterlife the “Church hierarchy” forcing their women to bear children unwanted or not is just a method of replacing their “soldiers” to preserve a dominance over what now has become both the political and daily lives of their subjects or lemmings. Regrettably Ms. Hogan, your rights or pleas as an individual or a woman mean nothing to the religious or political power brokers seeking to replace a constitutional government with Theocratic Dogma!

Cherryl Mitchel --- Congratulations on freeing yourself from the constraints of a male dominated “fundamentalist clergy” unable to reproduce who by keeping their women Barefoot and Pregnant will ensure that the dominance and their future will continue. Be patient Ms. Mitchel, great advances in the scientific community may someday provide women an escape from being subjugated second-class citizens. --- Once the anti-contraception anti-abortion males are afforded the medical means to assume the pregnancy of a woman’s unwanted child the “Hairy Legs” in both the pulpit and politics will disappear!

?? So you believe “The U.S. should stop all military and economic aid to Israel so we are not a supporter of that country’s attacks on Iran” Mr. Whiteside?? =========================== Americans waiting to be attacked before responding to another fiasco will be surprised --- IRAN will not attack the U.S. but it damn sure will provide the means and sophistication to improve on the 911 tragedy without commandeering a fleet of Airliners --- Advanced devices, a few SUV’s and a couple of suitcases will make more than New York and the Pentagon a target! The problem is supplying Israel with the capability to deal with the new mid-east “Religious Brotherhood” and hope Iran’s Mullahs are unable to supply enough “Virgins” for their suicide bombers.

Nothing “ODD” about Yael “Abracadabra” criticizing Gov. Jan Brewer’s perceived disagreement with Obama on the Arizona tarmac – He hasn’t been too interesting since he helped convince voters to run the former Mayor out of town with his unusual interest in reporting the personal habits or activities of Funkhouser’s wife ---- Often more alluring than his political advice or analysis maybe the Brewer thing signals Yael’s return to gossip rather than political commentary?

Religion and the Theory of Relativity ----------Choice; Brattin or Einstein Intelligent design is an oxymoron for the gullible – The only relationship religion and science share is curiosity and the pursuit or satisfaction in solving the complexities of life. – Mo. Rep. Rick Brattin invents a religious fulfillment that is irrefutable and Albert Einstein finds what is believed an acceptable answer but can still remain open to question or intellect!
Bo Steed – a similar opinion published a day or so ago related and attracted criticism from many who have never and will never serve ------ Ben Nicks closing query to those critics appropriately was “What outfit were you in?” =============================== Content to exist in a media vacuum where moral and political fantasy abound few if ANY of Mr. Nicks detractors claimed combat experience to reinforce or validate the expertise or credentials needed to judge the troops involved in the Afghan urination fiasco. For those so willing to denigrate or condemn before the responsibility or actual source of the incident is fully disclosed their criticism serves only the enemy!

Mr. Foster – believing God has been replaced by the almighty dollar and in our “drug- and-alcohol crazed” perverted country if an imaginary son were to be drafted you would send him somewhere safe why would you NOT accompany him or better still leave before that son becomes fact. However if lack of supreme guidance appears to be the cause or culprit for our decline you might give a republican Theocracy candidate, “disband the military” Ron Paul or “Pope” Rick Santorum a chance to eliminate conscription THEN pray for peace before deciding to migrate? Until then the U.S. is still fielding an all volunteer military that ensures you and your daydream offspring the opportunity to escape both reality and the draft within the confines of Knob Knoster Mo!

Sister Marie Combo – Assuming the “father” was deported to Mexico in the Acedo problem there’s nothing out of the ordinary from “open the border “Sanchez asking support from the public OR the TAXPAYER without full disclosure of past or present assistance this particular family has already received? Sanchez’s Scenario – “Zenia Acedo’s plight is familiar by now. She’s the 19-year-old whose mother died of cancer after giving birth prematurely to Zenia’s sister in early November. Authorities placed the infant in foster care temporarily as Zenia organizes how she is going to raise her new sister and care for four younger brothers. The family’s father has been deported.” Assisting a Family is one thing, lifetime adoption another! Sister Marie as a representative of the church you exist by the charity of others. Be even more involved in this family’s plight, baby sit for that new born sacrificing and sharing time will bring you closer to those (and real life) you now serve. ------ Leave the political meandering and begging to the Star’s socialist Sanchez!

Ford McClanahan’s the Star’s token “tell it like it is” conservative and with “open the borders” Sanchez, “poor me poor us” Diuguid and left wing “Bloomer Brigade” Barb Shelly we are fortunate he still enjoys a voice on our Liberal Rag --- I believe any appreciation or agreement of his views will fail to endear him to a “News”- paper that continues to meddle and shape rather than report the social and political future of Kansas City. ======================= As a purely political evaluation ignoring the oft mentioned personal baggage attributed to Newt Gingrich he would reduce Schoolboy Obama to a valedictorian presiding over a high school graduation ceremony and the present administrations past three years to a festive rerun of 1969’s Woodstock revelers!

So you picture those Palestinians who indiscriminately kill women and children by “lobbing” rockets into Israel as the victims of Israeli “Playground Bullies” worthy of your concern and compassion Ms. DiMiceli? It was reported in 1981 an Israelis air strike destroyed a French-built nuclear plant near Iraq's capital, Baghdad – DiMiceli, you had better hope they will be able to accommodate us (and the free world) with a similar response as Iran nears the production of a nuclear weapon. Whether your “Ostrich” opinion devoid of logic springs from a head in the sand (or elsewhere) you’ll be toast before those Mullah’s let you pull out a “Prayer Rug” to become the Muslim Brotherhoods new Ambassador!

Barbra Shelly all the time but you may have a problem debating her on this one --- As biased as Shelly and her editorial “fellow travellers” bore us silly with their political trash it’ll be hard to counter the 12/3 faith section of the Star’s report that “More than 1400 faith leaders have pledged solidarity with the (occupy) movement”----- A rather large photo of a church in San Francisco doling out Turkey Dinners accompanied and emphasized the argument. ------------------------------------- Better check what the congregation is doing after “Sunday go to Meeting “ Reverend before getting too involved POLITICALLY --- you could forfeit a Tax exemption?
