The answer to alleviating poverty is not more taxpayers’ money

Welfare dependency is evil, it sucks the life out of the nation and those on welfare.

Left-wingers won’t agree though, they think that the answer to alleviating poverty is more taxpayer money.

They are wrong and Kansas has proven that.

Progress on the war on poverty is always measured by how much the government is spending. The more, the better, say liberals. But a more sensible way to think about it is that the fewer people on welfare, the more people who are supporting themselves and not living off the hard working taxpayer. From that realistic perspective Kansas governor Sam Brownback has had a tremendous success, greatly reducing enrollment in the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program:

During Brownback?s first term in office, the state?s TANF enrollment declined by half from 38,900 in 2011 to 17,600 in 2014.

Rapid decline in TANF participation was hailed by O?Donnell and other Republicans as evidence of the administration?s anti-poverty strategies had changed lives, while Democrats asserted that drop reflected strident eligibility regulations that accomplished little beyond purging people from TANF rolls.

?We pat ourselves on the back that our TANF rolls have gone down exponentially and we say it?s because all those people are now working. We don?t know that and I?m guessing its not the truth,? said Sen. Laura Kelly, D-Topeka.

So this Democrat’s argument is that she doesn’t know if the poor are being hurt, but she’s guessing they are.

Kelly said weaving regulations limiting access to federally funded programs into state law was a strategy to make it more difficult for future governors to unravel Brownback?s vision of welfare.

Very good! I find I like Sam Brownback! He’s fundamentally transforming Kansas!

And now the Kansas legislature is considering a new law which will restrict the TANF program even further. ? Read more »

Kansas prepares for the zombie apocalypse

What’s the matter with Kansas?

We should see if the Greens will run a zombie?apocalypse?preparedness?month.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback wants his state to be ready when zombies arrive.

And to make sure Kansas takes the zombie apocalypse seriously, Brownback plans to officially declare October “Zombie Preparedness Month” during a ceremonial event Friday at the Kansas Statehouse.

Zombie Preparedness Month, however, is not actually about planning a defense for viral reincarnate flesh eaters.

Instead, Brownback’s administration wants to capitalize on pop culture’s zombie obsession to raise awareness about disaster planning and response. Read more »

KKK?s former Grand Dragon caught nuts deep in black male hooker

History of violence: Cross originally went by the name Frazier Glenn Miller (pictured in 1985) and created two racist and anti-Semitic groups and was once caught with a black prostitute who was a man masquerading as a woman

History of violence: Cross originally went by the name Frazier Glenn Miller (pictured in 1985) and created two racist and anti-Semitic groups and was once caught with a black prostitute who was a man masquerading as a woman

Authorities have uncovered a lot of astounding details regarding former Ku Klux Klan leader Frazier Glenn Miller, who is accused of killing three people this month at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas.

The?former Grand Dragon of the KKK was been caught nuts deep in a black male hooker back in 1986.

Frazier Glenn Cross, the man accused of murder in the shootings of three people outside Jewish facilities in Kansas last week was, for all practical purposes, born at the age of 49. ? ?

The federal government gave him that name when he was released from prison in 1990, along with a new social security number and a new place to live, not far from the Missouri River in western Iowa.

The idea was to erase any connection to the man he had been before: Frazier Glenn Miller. White Nationalist leader. Spewer of hate. Federal informant.

?I joined the family in Sioux City, Iowa,? Miller wrote later in his self-published autobiography. ?I enrolled in truck driving school?and I?ve been trucking ever since. And I love it. After prison, the freedom of the open road is gloriously exhilarating.?

This guy is a piece of work, going back decades. A life of hate…that is likely to be ended by the death penalty in Kansas.

In the early morning hours of April 30, 1987, more than three dozen federal and state law enforcement agents surrounded a mobile home in Ozark, Missouri. ?A van recently purchased by Miller in Louisiana had been spotted outside by an agent the day before.

A volley of tear gas was fired and then, just after 7 a.m, ?four men emerged and gave themselves up.

Among them was Miller, the founder of Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan?and the paramilitary White Patriot Party in North Carolina. The United States Marshals Service had issued a nationwide bulletin seeking Miller?s arrest after he disappeared while appealing his conviction for criminal contempt.

Agents recovered hand grenades, automatic rifles, pistols and flak jackets inside the trailer, according to FBI statements at the time. Explosives experts from nearby Fort Leonard Wood were called in to detonate a box containing about twenty pipe bombs.? Read more »
