Has anyone else noticed how the time-tested, positive principle of life called “living within your means” has been negatively rebranded into the word “austerity”?
Los Angeles has prohibited plastic bags at supermarket checkout lines. No mention, sadly, about how many plastics industry jobs will be lost. America needs more jobs, but we can expect that environmentalists will be lobbying for similar job-killing legislation in Kansas.
It should be noted that independent candidates running for the Legislature have until Aug. 6 to file for election. It would be a welcome change to vote for a nonpartisan candidate who decided to run after a thoughtful evaluation, not a knee-jerk reaction to new district lines.
Mitt Romney’s politics remind me of the old adage, “You can’t tell from looking at a frog which way he’s gonna jump.”
Attorney General Eric Holder looks to be as crooked, and as much of an obstructor of justice, as Richard Nixon was years ago. Holder should be held in contempt of Congress and maybe even removed from office.
Will Holder’s Justice Department go after those leaking top-secret information as aggressively as it has Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and Arizona and Florida? Or as slowly as it has been in prosecuting Army Maj. Nidal Hasan and determining who is responsible for the Fast and Furious debacle? The answer is obvious.
Whenever our senators hold a hearing with people like Jamie Dimon and Jon Corzine across the tables, they act like the lowliest of employees talking to the big boss. Come to think of it, they are.
The Republican Congress has taken the no-drugs slogan of “Just say no” to mean anything the president proposes.
Russia is sending arms and aircraft to Syria for assaults on its citizens. The Evil Empire has returned.
I would like to thank the person who turned my cellphone in to the service desk of Walmart at Pawnee and Broadway. It was very kind and thoughtful.
I would like to apologize to the honking driver who passed me on my bicycle on McLean next to O.J. Watson Park. I’m sorry if I delayed your trip for 30 seconds. Good luck in anger-management class.
Can the city please put some “Do not block intersection” signs at Rock and Orme, and at Rock and the Eastgate Shopping Center? Those are two terrible intersections, and it is not even Thanksgiving.
