I believe the main issue in this November’s election is freedom. One party is fighting for the people to keep our freedoms. Then there is the Democratic Party, which wants to take our freedoms away.
President Obama can’t run on his record? We haven’t had any acts of terrorism on our soil, and the world’s No. 1 terrorist is dead. That’s more than President Bush was able to run on.
If you put the Democratic Party-controlled federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there would be a shortage of sand.
Only in Kansas would supposedly low-tax, small-government conservative politicians rush to build an unneeded new air terminal solely to capture tens of millions of dollars in federal government grants. Build a parking garage and reconfigure security to avoid a checkpoint bottleneck, and call it good.
We are going to take $50 million from the feds to build a $100 million terminal that we don’t need, and in doing so ignore the low bidder so we can spend $2.1 million more to go with the high bidder? Where is the tea party when you need it?
Having read the opinions of those wishing to combine the Wichita and Sedgwick County governments, I would ask: What about all the other cities and communities in Sedgwick County? All of Wichita’s many problems would be spread to the other small communities, much like a cancer.

Judging by the number of people who hold them in their hand constantly, cellphones must be adult pacifiers. So sad.
My friends and I eat out in nice restaurants several times a week. Why do they play loud music when there are only a few customers in the restaurant? And rap music when you can clearly see the diners are older than 50?
