A Phish Phan Jumped On Stage And Jammed With Jon Fishman Last Night [Watch]

first_imgLast night, Phish treated fans to a number of tour debuts, as well as the second version of “Fluffhead” on this summer’s tour. Playing the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, ME, one fan got a little too excited during the “Fluffhead,” finding his way on stage during the song. The fan brought his own drum sticks with him, and jammed with Jon Fishman for a few seconds before being escorted off by security.Watch the whole thing go down below.last_img

Sunday editorial: What is wrong with my state?

first_imgCommentary by Andy Speagle, Vice Chairman, Sumner County Democratic Party — What is wrong with my state?Like many of you, I’m a born, raised and educated citizen of Kansas.  I grew up in a small town and was always amazed at the beauty of this state and the friendliness and caring that I saw from my fellow Kansans.  I served for nearly a decade in the U.S. Army, and upon my departure from that institution I looked forward to returning home to my native land.  Sadly, as the years have drawn on, I’ve become somewhat less enamored with my home state.Andy SpeagleThe current failed government experiment, led by Governor Brownback and his cronies in Topeka, threatens to destroy our state.  As we stare down the barrel of another almost $300 million revenue shortfall, we are left looking forward to another raiding of our highway funds, primary, secondary and higher education budgets, retirement funds and other key social programs.  The government’s continued refusal to expand Medicaid via the Affordable Care Act leaves many of our seniors paying much higher medical care costs than necessary.  Why?  How could this happen to the state I call home?  How did we allow this to happen?It’s clear that our governor and state legislators have forgotten that their jobs are to serve the people; not themselves, not special interests and not their big business buddies.  What’s ultimately sadder is that we seem to be continuing to allow this.  When did we forget that the folks in Topeka don’t rule us, aren’t our lords and masters and are elected merely to represent and serve our best interests?  Does anyone truly believe it’s in our best interests for our schools to go unfunded, for our highways to fall into disrepair, for our citizens to be denied access to affordable health care options?This keeps happening because we, the people of this state, continue to surrender our sovereignty by electing and reelecting these so-called “representatives of the people” into office.  We blindly vote along party lines, not really understanding what harm those actions will bring to ourselves and our neighbors.  We seem to be so locked into these old ways of thinking that we can’t see the cliff coming until we’re already falling.How many more years of these disastrous state fiscal policies must we endure before we come to our senses and remember that this is OUR democracy?  How much more damage to our state will we allow before we grab the wheel back from these elected officials and avoid going over the cliff?  How many of you aren’t registered to vote, or are, but don’t vote and yet see what’s going on in the state and feel powerless to fix it?You’re not powerless.  Your vote is your power.  If you’re not registered to vote, fix it, get registered.  If you don’t vote, fix it, show up to vote in the upcoming primaries on August 2 and the general election on November 8.  If you don’t vote, you’re surrendering your power, your sovereignty to the elected officials in Topeka who clearly don’t care about you.  You’re telling them to do whatever they want with Kansas, because you just don’t care anymore.I hope, as a fellow Kansan who cares for his or her state, you’ll stand with me this year to cast your vote for a different state legislature.  The Sumner County Democratic Party meets the first Thursday of each month at the Wellington Library at 7 p.m.  Please come join us to learn more about how you can become involved with helping to take back Kansas from the abuses of the current legislature that continues to serve the disastrous Brownback policies.Please use the following contact information to get in touch with the Sumner County Democratic Party for more information:Danette Harris, Chair – [email protected] Speagle, Vice-Chair – [email protected] Heffron, Treasurer – [email protected] us on Twitter.

Oddly, the republican party has never represented what is best for Kansas. It won’t make you a hippie if you vote Democrat, you won’t go to hell, you won’t lose your guns.

Report Reply 4 replies · active 221 weeks ago +21 Vote up Vote down Jim · 221 weeks ago Mr. Spreagle, Thank you for your service in the military and thank for having the courage to participate in the political system. I am sure that you understand the other point of view that government should be limited and that the ultimate provider of income for government is not business, it is the worker. Some workers provide more services than other workers and they temporarily have more income than others and you would call them rich. By taking money from the rich and giving it to the non workers is the answer of socialism or progressivism as you call it now. If the State of Kansas had a surplus, it would be spent somewhere. If the State of Kansas broke even, someone would complain. If the State of Kansas had a 2% deficient, someone would complain. HIGHLIGHTS •Between fiscal years 2014 and 2015, total government spending in Kansas increased by approximately $686 million, from $14.4 billion in fiscal year 2014 to an estimated $15.0 billion in 2015. This represents a 4.56 percent increase.[1][2][3] •In Kansas in fiscal year 2014, 53.0 percent of total tax revenues came from sales taxes and gross receipts. Income taxes accounted for 38.7 percent of total tax collections. •Education accounted for 43.5 percent of state expenditures in fiscal year 2015, while 22.4 percent went to Medicaid.

This alone does not qualify me to serve as a competent representative of the Republic. Article 4 section 4 of the Constitution states. The United States shall guarantee to every State in the Union a Republican form of Government, and shall protect each of them from invasion……. So original intent is always essential in learning or relearning the truths of what our country is supposed to be.

More time is spent arguing over whos party is right or wrong rather than what the actual problem is. I am sick and tired of whiny little entitled clowns. Tax each one of the 330,000 LLC’s who currently pay NO income tax $1,000.00 a year to operate in the state of Kansas. Oh we would have a surplus all of a sudden in tax dollars? What do you know problem solved by a 27 year old when 100 and some ELECTED officials are busy raping every fund our state needs to stay afloat. It is not rocket science guys. It is common sense. Report Reply 5 replies · active 221 weeks ago -21 Vote up Vote down Eric Pierce · 221 weeks ago Oh come on. If you can’t afford to pay $1,000 a year to help your state fund all their important programs when you aren’t currently paying anything you probably shouldn’t be in business in the first place. Almost every state in the US has income tax on businesses. Why do I have to pay taxes on my income but they don’t? In fact I am taxed when I earn money and taxed when I spend money. Hell some of these businesses are even tax exempt so they don’t have to pay sales tax either when they buy things. Its time everyone pay their fair share and not punish our kids young and old for a bunch of idiots in Topeka who can’t tie their shoes let alone control our finances. When they go into “overtime” sessions to balance a budget they should lose money from their salaries not pay them overtime. The way things work are not good for the people. Everyone needs to go and we need a fresh start.

Next, hold an election to vote in who you deem fit to do the job. After that you will have yourselves to blame just like you have yourselves to blame for putting up with the crap.
