About Evensen’s Internet show

Taking the message nationwide on television

By Greg Evensen

The phrase, “all in God’s timing and in the most effective way possible,” applies to a new nationwide internet television series to be broadcast on the IBC (Internet Broadcast Company) network.  This is a subscription ($35 per year initially) channel similar to that which Glenn Beck is affiliated.

I will host an hour show each week discussing and detailing how folks can better prepare for the unprecedented challenges just ahead of us in America.  We know the civil and governmental disaster that has been created by unrestrained political power.  Most of us have seen the overwhelming abuses by law enforcement and in some cases the military forces.  Many are acutely aware of how the Bible sets forth unprecedented events set to begin on a worldwide basis in the near future.  Unfortunately, only a few know how to plan for and implement an effective means to deal with what is coming.

Letter-writing campaign targets KanCare ruling

By FINN M. BULLERS

Many of you kind folks have been following via social media the struggle my family and I are facing under KanCare to receive the doctor-ordered care I need to stay alive, raise my two children and be a contributing member of society.

It has not been easy.

But with a well-written letter to members of the state managed-care oversight committee, known as KanCare, perhaps together we can rattle some cages and make a difference — not just for me, but for the remaining 379,999 other Kansas who face a reduction in caregiver hours. Continue reading

Prairie Village man fights major cut in care hours

PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. — Many of you kind folks have been following via social media the struggle my family and I are facing under KanCare to receive the doctor-ordered care I need to stay alive, raise my two children and be a contributing member of society.

It has not been easy.

But with a well-written letter to members of the state managed-care oversight committee, known as KanCare, perhaps together we can rattle some cages and make a difference — not just for me, but for the remaining 379,999 other Kansas who face a reduction in caregiver hours.

This effort becomes significantly more important considering the fact that KanCare is a pilot program for manage care and if it is deemed successful by Kansas politicians, it will be imported to other states across the nation. Continue reading

‘Squeaky Wheel’ column makes its national debut

Together, grassroots disability advocates can make a difference

By FINN M. BULLERS

OVERLAND PARK, KAN. — Grease is the word.

But don’t mistake this for a 1978 ode to John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as two 1950s high-school lovers, the highest-grossing musical to date in the United States.

This recurring column — the “Squeaky Wheel” — is dedicated to the free flow of information affecting the global disability community in our ongoing push for change — the “grease” to lubricate the gears of society to level the playing field and remove the physical and attitudinal barriers standing in our way.

For as we all know, it is the “Squeaky Wheel” — www.usersfirst.com — that gets the grease. Case in point: Continue reading

Sexy NBC cop drama on wheels makes debut

But will this fall’s ‘Ironside’ survive cripple stereotype?

By FINN M. BULLERS
Freelance writer/editor

He  rolls up to the couch. A dead man is lying with a knife in his chest.  A swarm of crime scene investigators turns up no clues to the man’s death.

But from his vantage point, Robert Ironside, a New York City TV detective paralyzed on duty by an assailant’s bullet, instinctively hones in on the instrument of death — a silver handgun.

“How the hell did you see that?” his partner asks. “I’ve got a different view of the world from down here, ” Ironside responds in dead-pan fashion. Continue reading

Irony swirls around Brownback’s cloak of judicial secrecy

By Columnist Tim Carpenter
Topeka Capital Journal

Gov. Sam Brownback’s nomination of the administration’s general counsel to a seat on the Kansas Court of Appeals serves as deja vu role reversal circa 2005.

Eight years ago, Brownback was a member of the U.S. Senate’s judiciary committee and leader of the  GOP revolt against President George W. Bush’s nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court. She was the president’s White House counsel.

The senator was vexed about Bush’s refusal to release documents related to Miers’ work in the White House. Of primary concern, in terms of Brownback, was validity of Miers’ pro-life record.

Brownback has proven during his years in the U.S. Senate and as Kansas governor that he believes the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion in 1973 shouldn’t be considered “settled law” in the United States. He seeks an end to abortion in America. Continue reading
