For less money than fluoridating the municipal water supply, provide toothbrushes and toothpaste to the most needy (those qualifying for free and reduced lunches) and have them brush at the school. That would be a commonsense solution where parental control, personal freedom and efficiency come together.
I sincerely hope that the 11,000 people who signed the petition for putting fluoride in our water will research the studies on the dangers of fluoride before they vote on this issue.
There simply must be a way to link fluoride to Satan, casinos, school shootings or cooties so we can ignore dental science and vote “no” with a clear conscience.
Regarding “Senseless gunfire” (Sept. 6 Eagle Editorial): Major parts of Wichita are every bit as dangerous, violent and chaotic as in any other major urban center in the U.S. “Small-town sensibility” and “strong values”? Not hardly.
A young girl dies due to a random bullet. This wouldn’t have happened if the offenders were fighting with knives, swords or clubs. Why do we make guns so easy to get?
What’s the point of city planning if it’s just going to be ignored and rezoned every time a big-box store wants to move into the suburbs? City Council: Don’t ignore the wishes of your constituents. Don’t rezone 29th Street North and Maize Road.
Yoo-hoo, Sam’s Club – Hutchinson residents here. We have wanted one of your clubs for years. Just change your plans and come a bit farther northwest. Think of all the business from western Kansas you could get.
I just loved Mayor Carl Brewer at the Democratic convention standing next to the fool bashing the Koch brothers. I guess Brewer wants to send them out of town with Boeing.
Whenever I hear the president and his minions speak of us all being part of “the collective,” I am reminded of the pathetic and creepy Borg in “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” No, thank you – I’ll vote for personal responsibility and personal freedom.
Like many of my generation, when I envision our nation and our planet’s future, I hope for it to be much like it was portrayed in “Star Trek”: brave, honest, fair. An expanding vision free of hatred and prejudice. The Democratic Party vision.
There has never been a sufficiently large tax cut that could compensate for the lack of reproductive freedom.
I keep hearing that we need Mitt Romney because he’s a businessman. Challenge: Name one successful president who was a businessman.
Be warned. Bill Clinton said it Wednesday just like Obama has before – “shared prosperity.” If the Democrats have their way, the money you work for and earn will be given to others who had no hand in helping you earn it and have no right to it.
Americans have such short memories about the failings of our presidents that we might as well elect them to eight-year terms.
