President Obama extended the Bush tax cuts once, and Bill Clinton said the country is in a recession and the Bush tax cuts again should be extended. Maybe it’s time to refer to them as the “Bush-Obama” tax cuts.
Bill Clinton is beginning to look more like W.C. Fields every day.
The solution for our unemployment woes is stunning in its simplicity: Enact the rest of a national health care program so that people in their 60s, free of needing a job solely for health insurance, can finally retire. Millions of jobs would open up.
Kansas public-employees’ pensions are breaking the bank in Kansas. Let’s follow Wisconsin’s lead and correct the problem before we’re bankrupt, if it isn’t too late already.
If you are against unions, here is a news flash: If not for unions, you would not make the money that you make now or have the benefits that you have.
Not all Republicans support Gov. Sam Brownback’s tax cuts and decimation of the Kansas Medicaid program. This lifelong Republican is looking forward to knocking on doors for the Democrat running against him in the next election.
What do the members of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce stand to gain from the $2 million they reportedly are investing in removing eight moderate Republicans from the Kansas Senate? The successful businesses that support this organization do not make stupid investments.
Since it seems Oklahoma and Texas have no problem taking our industry, why don’t we retaliate by slapping a T-pipe in that Keystone pipeline joined up to a high-tech refinery?
I have a solution for the city of Wichita and Sedgwick County budget woes. All they need to do is establish a new tax-increment financing district for themselves, as they do time and time again for the downtown developers. This always helps the developers, so it should help them, too.
It is time to consolidate our city and county governments. We have far more highly paid officials than we need for the number of residents. I suggest the local media get something going. Do not expect help from the government leaders, as they are only interested in protecting their own interests.
Hats off to the River Festival. I looked out my office window at the food court during the middle of the day. There were six people and a stray cat over there. Close Douglas Avenue for that? Brilliant.
I think I’ll take a hint from the ex-NFL players. I’ll buy a hammer, intentionally hit myself in the head with it, and then sue the hammer maker.
I mourn the passing of Ray Bradbury. And looking at our world now, I wonder once again: Who went back and stepped on the butterfly?
I don’t care what anybody says. I’m going to see Venus cross in front of the sun again.
