Are the same city employees who designed, engineered, selected contractors for and inspected the Lincoln Street dam now going to tell taxpayers what caused the structural failure? My money is on, “The solar system caused the Earth to shift, causing unavoidable damage.”
It is truly shameful that working people, the elderly and others have to wait hours in line to get their driver’s license renewed in Wichita. Surely our state government officials can do better for us.
While reading about what Gov. Sam Brownback signed into law or vetoed, I asked myself: What would Jesus have done? This led me to wonder whether our governor represents the second coming or just another in a long line of failed prophets.
Brownback and his right-wing Republican cronies are so intent on taking us back to the 1950s that I’m surprised he hasn’t tried to outlaw color TV.
The failure of the unions’ effort to recall Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin will have major implications nationwide for government worker unions. The government did not come apart as unions predicted, and their membership has plummeted.
There’s nothing like spending more money, when you are already in debt, on an unnecessary recall election.
Why Walker’s Wisconsin victory should be front-page news in Wichita is hard to understand. Oh, that’s right – a couple of local boys paid for it.
Republicans blame Obama for unemployment and joblessness while the Republican Congress blocks the jobs bill. Significance for Obama: caught between a rock and hard place. Significance for the Republicans: having their cake and eating it, too.
The GSA handed out $1 million to workers under scrutiny. We will spend at least $1 million investigating, yet nothing will be done. Taxpayers will not get the $1 million back. The workers probably will get bonuses again this year. So why are we spending all of this money to investigate?
With so little common sense shown by the so-called middle class, I am ashamed to call myself middle class anymore.
Do you ever wonder just what foreign journalists are writing about the United States for their newspapers?
Dear employers: Help us by listing “bilingual required” or “bilingual preferred” at the top of your job ads, not hidden somewhere near the bottom, so we don’t waste time reading your ad only to be eliminated by what should have been listed as the first requirement. Thanks for being considerate.
