We have come a long way, America, but as of late, in a very wrong way.


The United States of America formed a democratic republic to conduct its affairs and gave that body a list of dos and don’ts. By teaching everyone the United States of America is a democracy, the U.S. government (a private corporation) has been able to influence the people of the United States of America inappropriately.


Weekly Standard headline – “Obama: ‘America can do better.’” My thoughts: It would be hard to do worse.


Obama will go down in history as the man who single-handedly destroyed America


That Dick Cheney still staunchly denies being a liar only further substantiates the accusation.


Under the proposed new gun-control law, I doubt Obama or most congressmen would qualify to buy one.


Stocks are up for two reasons: Industry is shipping work overseas to escape punishing regulations and the world’s highest corporate income tax, and laying off or not hiring because of the cost of the Affordable Care Act. So stop blaming the rich guy for everything. It is a good time to be a rich guy, but sad for the country in the long run.


In a just world, the cuts to state services, parks, higher education, etc., would only affect the folks who voted for Sam Brownback and his buddies. Unfortunately, we’ll all suffer while his “job creators” laugh all the way to the bank.


The perceived truism “You can’t fix stupid” needs to be taken a step further to “Neither can you legislate intelligence.”


Let it not be misapprehended that the Judeo-Christian tradition stands “against” society. It stands against those elements of society who have concluded that, not being able to persuade society to their view, they must now resort to using government coercion in the realization of their ambitions.


God is always right, and so is the Bible. He said that a male shall not lie down with another male, or a female shall not lie down with another female. Why do you think God nuked Sodom and Gomorrah? God’s laws trump man’s laws.


Congratulations to K-State – oops – I mean KU – no, wait – I mean WSU for reaching the Final Four.


I kept listening for the stupid “Rock Chalk, Jayhawk” chant after the Michigan game. The silence was deafening.


Religion was sparked by politics. Religion is about social control.


Would Justin Bieber please just go away?
