Opinion Line Extra (March 14)

If the White House is “the people’s house,” as Obama has so eloquently said, then why can’t the people visit their own house? I suggest we evict him from “our house.” Any landlord would do the same if the occupant refused him entry.

It looks like the White House stepped in it again. Stopping the free tours in order to cut back on overtime? Really? It seems like employing more Secret Service would help the job market and tours could continue. I don’t think the Secret Service is drinking Obama’s Kool-Aid.

According to our Washington leaders, cutting spending with a sequester would result in the sky falling. Instead, records were set on the stock markets. Business leaders know how to get the economy rolling.

Someone in Congress or the Statehouse needs to hire my daughter. She can get people to do just about everything she wants, and the rest of us are left scratching our heads and asking ourselves, “How did she do that?”

I wonder why you Christians are so afraid of us liberal Christians.

I’m a Christian and a liberal, and I’m not afraid of myself.

Hating liberals doesn’t make you Christian. It just makes you hateful.

Why don’t Catholics who disagree with priestly celibacy, birth control and abortion rules, and so on just join another church? No one is holding a gun to their heads to make them remain in the Catholic Church.

I enjoy being entertained by those who complain about having to pay a little extra to fund schools and then, in the same breath, talk of how people these days are undereducated.

People will not stop drinking alcohol if they can’t get it in a grocery store. But liquor-store owners and employees will certainly stop earning money. Leave it alone.

Many teens think that energy drinks will give them “energy” or keep them awake, but really all the drinks are doing is making them gain more weight. Energy drinks should be sold in smaller cans.

Since the Legislature has dropped its foolish bill on strip clubs, hopefully it will do the same for the bills about abortion and the turnpike, and therefore have time to do something that would help the whole state for a change.

When I was in school, a teacher threw a book at me. If he’d had a gun, I would be dead.

If we could figure out why it is that running water makes you have to pee, we might find it to be the answer to all of mankind’s problems.
