In 2008, Johnson County Community College introduced new diversity initiatives that became the foundation for the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion or ODEI.

Prior to the creation of the…Continue

A message from Charles William Urwin to all members of Political Graffiti - Vetting & Venting on Political Chips - Let YOUR Voice Be Heard!
How many of you know anything about the UN Treaty for the "Rights of the Child"?? Have you heard anything about it on any of the news media channels?? No, you haven't.
How many of you know that if the United States signs this treaty with the UN that this treaty supersedes the US Constitution and will become the supreme law of the…

THE TEA PARTY AND MINORITIES – What Can Be Done To Attract Them?
I am often asked by many in the Tea Party Movement what can be done to attract more Blacks and minorities to attend and become involved with a movement that is dedicated to restore and save our Republic. It is a very valid question, and it is a subject that deserves research and honest answers.
The Tea Party has been accused of racism by the main stream media and several Civil Rights Groups since…Continue
I received this from the KOS:
The epic fight put up by the protesters in Wisconsin has given us an opportunity. With so many people across the country inspired by the courage of the "cheddar rebellion," we now have a chance build a national movement for a new economy that actually works for everyone.
On Saturday at noon, led by unions and the netroots, an enormous coalition of progressive groups are co-sponsoring rallies in all 50 state capitols and many other…Continue

It's been almost two weeks since SEIU members in Wisconsin joined with other public employees, students and allies to fight back against Governor Walker's attempt to take away their rights.
And we're winning.
You've seen the scenes from Madison by now, tens of thousands in the streets and thousands more inside the capitol inspiring a nation that has had enough of attempts to slash public services and hurt workers for the profit of billionaire campaign contributors.…
On February 27, 1776, the newly established Continental Navy was at sea on its first operation, an expedition to the Bahamas to capture some badly needed munitions. The flagship of the little fleet flew a new ensign presented by…Continue

Since liberals pretend that there are no limitations on the actions of government, I assume it's because liberals don't want to wear out the Constitution via over-use and believe they are "saving" it by not using it. They want to place the Constitution in a museum.
Conservatives believe that exercising the Constitution is the only way to save it for future generations, and they believe liberty is best served by narrowly limited government kept within the…Continue
The House voted today on HB 2101 and will vote in the morning in final action. HB 2101 will change how the Kansas Court of Appeal judges are selected by eliminating the nominating commission which has been stacked with liberals. This bill will allowing the governor to appoint a candidate, the Kansas Senate would then confirm the candidate. …
The idiot Democrat legislators in Wisconsin and Indiana who have deserted the legislatures and the citizens they swore to serve should all be recalled by the citizens and denied a seat when they finally decide to report back to their legislative posts. The childishness of their temper tantrums and their inability to defend themselves and their party's positions is abhorrent; our brave soldiers are asked to risk their lives in battle, and state legislators can't even risk making a…Continue

Remember when the left was all pointy headed, elite intelligentsia? Now they're showing their true colors. They have taken their gloves off and they're gonna "beat us down"! Check it out. Remember as you watch that SEIU is a public sector union and their boss is you and me - the taxpayers.…

So when you take your position to the voters - AND LOSE - then times are indeed tough for the party voted out of power. It was not a good time in America for the conservative viewpoint when Obama, Pelosi and Reid took over the levers of power in Washington.
We were shut out and voted out of all the legislation they pushed through - - out of control spending, deficits for as long as the eye can see, and OBAMACARE forced on the population despite their strong feelings against this…Continue
