Listen to the Kansas Progressive Caucus meeting and a presentation on what are the issues Kansans are discussing. The audio comes from the Aug. 22, 2015 "Progressive Pavilion" held during the Kansas Democratic Party's annual Wichita Demofest.
What's the matter with Kansas? "The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy recently reported that Kansas has the ninth-most unfair tax system in the county. A Kansan earning $47,700 a year pays 9.5 percent of income in state and local taxes; but someone earning $1,191,700 pays an effective rate of just 3.6 percent."
So much for the 'trickle down' libertarian economic theories masterminded by the Wichita plutocrats Charles & David Koch; and implemented by Gov. Sam Brownback and his cronies in the state legislature.

In the 1960s, resistors of the draft had no cell phones, social websites or even broad range fame. Many were scorned. How did they organize? Many were thrown in jail, federal prison and fled the country. Their resistance permeated civil rights, the Vietnam War, the Farmers United Workers movement (organizing Unions), etc. Father Lawrence Rosebaugh was a part of all of this. Tonight, we will take his book and compare experience from his life including him illegally climbing into a Georgia army base and talk about the difference of resistance movement of the 1960s-80s to todays movements of Occupy and Black Lives Matter.
We will also discuss other movements like Cindy Sheehan's despair over her son, Casey's death. Code Pink was involved with war resistance.
In the 1980s Ground Zero established close ties with Nipponzan Myohoji, a pacifist Buddhist order from Japan, who worked with the Ground Zero community to build a peace pagoda. Unfortunately, the peace pagoda was never completed due to repeated denials for a land-use permit from the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners. Members of the greater Kitsap community also voiced their rejection of the proposed building in local newspapers. In May 1982 a temporary geodesic dome, which had been used for the monks' religious ceremonies, was destroyed in an act of arson. A stupa was later erected on the grounds as a memorial. http://archiveswest.orbiscascade.org
To Wisdom Through Failure
A Journey of Compassion, Resistance and Hope
by Larry Rosebaugh, OMI
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty

In January 2014, Professional Options hosted a Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) meeting at Poulsbo City Hall so area veterans could learn about how to benefit from WWP. Attendees hear about successes and challenges our veterans and their families face after serving and sacrificing for our country, and how the services provided by WWP allow them to move forward with their "new normal."
WWP provides support and services to post-Sept. 11 veterans such as college scholarships and stipends; cash grants to service providers to cover basic needs like food, rent and utilities; physical and psychological rehabilitation; combat stress recovery; benefits assistance; peer support; and career development and training. In 2012 alone, it spent $114 million to aid wounded veterans, their families and their caregivers.
The meeting was WWP's first time in Kitsap, and a Wounded Warriors in Kitasp (WWIK) group (no affiliation with WWP) was loosely formed and communicates via a Facebook page.
Join us as we talk with regional WWIK advocates and leaders Charles Keating, Todd Best, and Jeremy Creed about what's ahead.
Bernie Sanders is a Democratic candidate for President of the United States. In 2006, he was elected to the U.S. Senate after 16 years as Vermont’s sole congressman in the House of Representatives. Bernie is now serving his second term in the U.S. Senate after winning re-election in 2012 with 71 percent of the vote.
From his news page:
SEATTLE – More than 15,000 boisterous supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders packed inside and outside the University of Washington’s Hec Edmunson Pavilion on Saturday.
“The momentum is unbelievable,” Sanders said. “We’ve got 12,000 people here,” he said to roar of the crowd inside the pavilion. “And a few minutes ago, I just talked to 3,000 people outside,” he added, citing a Seattle police estimate.
The big turnouts are sending a powerful message, Sanders said, in arenas and convention centers here and in other cities from Phoenix to Houston to New Orleans to Madison, Wisconsin. (The 11,300 turnout in Phoenix on July 18 was the biggest crowd for any presidential candidate before the rally here in Seattle.)
“All across this country people are sick and tired of establishment politics, establishment economics and they want real change,” he said. “The people of America understand that corporate greed is destroying our country,” he added, “and that much of the mainstream media is prepared to talk about everything except for what is the most important.” See: https://berniesanders.com/

In what was an exciting fight in front of a sold-out crowd at the Barlow Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, Wilder retained his WBC heavyweight title with a ninth-round knockout of a brave, resilient Eric Molina on Saturday evening.
It was Erislandy Lara’s audition on “PBC” on Spike as he took on Delvin Rodriguez in a 12 round bout at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois. The fact that Miguel Cotto stopped Rodriguez, and only needed three rounds to do it, put a little pressure on Lara to impress.
Artur Beterbiev was set for action last week on the Guerrero-Martinez undercard at the StubHub Center before his opponent pulled out due to injury. That is why Beterbiev was the televised opener for tonight’s “PBC” on Spike as he faced off against late replacement Alexander Johnson.
Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed, the 22yr old junior welterweight from Maryland, took on Luis Joel Gonzalez on the undercard of tonight’s HBO “Boxing After Dark” that features Nicholas Walters and Felix Verdejo fighting in separate bouts.
Reed started off very slow in the fight and was much more aware of what he was throwing. He was taking inventory of his power punches, which might’ve given his opponent a false sense of awareness.
Jose Pedraza and Andrey Klimov fought for a vacant IBF junior lightweight title in the televised opener for ShowTime’s telecast featuring Wilder-Molina at the Bartow Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.
Pedraza started off well and utilized both his left hook and right hand. It was Pedraza’s hand speed and combinations that separated himself from his opponent in the first round.

Psalm 27:1-5 New King James Version (NKJV)
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.
4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.
