Dick Kelsey spent some more of his own hard earned dollars to showcase some of his top brass supporters for his bid for Congress in KS-04. Last week, Kelsey posted this radio spot featuring Kansas GOP Presidential caucus winner Gov. Mike Huckabee in a strong endorsement.

We’ve known for a long-time coal was a total loser for the environment. Our friends at the Great Plains Alliance for Clean Energy (GPACE) have done a great job in the fight for the health of Kansans and the Kansas environment in the battle against Sunflower Energy out in Western Kansas.

GPACE Director Scott Allegrucci correctly pinned Governor Parkinson’s “compromise” as “snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.” No doubt. But now we have good reason to believe coal may be more than just bad for the environment, it's also bad for the pocketbook.

If you were in a coma this week, this will be news to you. Sean Tevis, the Kansas information architect-turned allstar 2008 state legislative House candidate has decided to take another stab at the Kansas House in 2010 via comic book stick figures. While not widely reported by the traditional Kansas media, blogs across the nation have taken this with furor, with the Daily Kos even calling him the "coolest candidate running for state legislature anywhere." That's impressive stuff.

This is not the first time I've written about Mr. Tevis. As you'll remember, in March the Republican "asshats" in the Kansas Legislature thought it would be a good idea to prevent another Sean Tevis, or Sean Tevis himself, from trying to raise funds off of stick figure cartoons or, more specifically, unitemized internet contributions, which in the aggregate, total over $5,000.00. Obviously, that "asshat" attempt at regulating unitemized internet contributions failed, because Mr. Tevis is back for his reprise.

Hosted by RockYouPhotos.comYesterday morning, Wednesday, President Obama held a press conference telling Congress this is it for earmarks. It looked like an episode of Intervention on A&E, except the drugged and drunk weren't there to be chided. Oh yeah, and then President Obama stepped off camera to sign a bill with somewhere between 8,500 to 9,200 earmarks (while irrelevant, it just depends on who is reporting the number) worth around $8 billion.

My Grandfather used to say with some frequency towards the end of his long 82 years that Hosted by“it’s a modern world.” Boy, was he ever right—there are black bears in northwest Missouri, just a county away from my own; deer, those terribly dangerous creatures, have invaded the Kansas City metro, with a Kansas legislator proposing an open bow season within a densely populated park within Shawnee Mission; and a new hunting season is open on unitemized internet campaign contributions over the amount of $5,000.00, though a similar requirement wouldn’t exist if it were raised through a small, local fundraiser where the aggregate of unitemized contributions received were over $5,000.00.

It seems as though every time I flip on CNN or MSNBC in the last couple of years (most prevalent since the Abramoff legislative corruption scandals of 2006), earmarks have seem to have taken a front and center position in media coverage. Even more recently, earmarks have taken another prominent role in media coverage with President Obama poised to sign a $410 billion omnibus spending bill for the remainder of FFY2009. The bill has around 9,200 earmarks totaling roughly $8 billion, even if there are 11 senators who were able to temporarily halt the omnibus appropriation on late Thursday. To be fair, President Obama does note, as was messaged over the Sunday morning talking heads last weekend, this is last year's, and more importantly, last president's business.

In a landmark decision today for those of us that value the phrase "where there is injustice somewhere, there is injustice everywhere", the Kansas Supreme Court rendered the Kansas Juvenile Justice Code categorically unconstitutional for failure to provide juveniles accused of a crime in the state of Kansas the right to a jury.

While I had intended to do more respectable blogging for my first entry for EverydayCitizen, especially in regards to energy, environment, agriculture and rural development, I am finding myself writing on the continued fight, still, in Kansas between Clinton and Obama supporters.

In order to clear the air on any biases, I am and have been a Barack Obama supporter, activist and volunteer since before the beginning. He is my generation's greatest opportunity for a different future. However, this personal commentary aside, I will support and volunteer for Sen. Clinton if she is crowned by the Party's nomination.

Being a Kansan, we have held our caucuses on Super Fat Tuesday in February. Obama won in Kansas overwhelmingly by a 75-25 break-down, give or take a few points. However, ironically, I am finding that more and more Kansas Democrats are split between Clinton and Obama and still feuding this out over dinners, telephone conversations, racquetball (maybe in Johnson or Douglas Counties???) and even in bars over pitchers of beers and a game of pool (the other 103 counties and can you say emergency room?).
