Anyone driving with wipers on but no headlights, as required by law, or with parking lights only should lose his driving privileges permanently, because he has shown his complete disregard for law and his total lack of intelligence.

The city of Wichita needs to fire two people. The first is whoever is in charge of street drainage. The second is whoever had the idiotic idea to put oil and gravel over paved roads.

Dear Missouri: Please secede from the union. You are embarrassing the rest of us. I’ll even help you pack.

I can remember people mocking presidents with the use of look-alike masks all the way back to Richard Nixon. They were especially hard on George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. People are overreacting to the rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair. People need to lighten up.

I’m tired of the media protecting this clown and getting their feelings hurt because some rodeo clown wore an Obama mask. He is a joke, so why not make fun of him? Presidents before him were made fun of. Why not him? Why is he so special?

You’d think the supposed professor of constitutional law would calm down his crazed minions and tell them people are allowed to goof on him.

With his polls slumping, the economy in decline, and a strong al-Qaida activating around the globe, Obama flees Washington again.

Aren’t Republicans a little embarrassed now that the “compassionate conservatism” mask has fallen off, exposing the true face of the Republican Party? “You get yours, I’ll get mine and, oh, by the way, good luck with that.”

The delinquent real-estate tax list in Monday’s Eagle was eight pages longer than the rest of the paper. What’s wrong with this picture?

I’m glad that I go to the Ozarks a lot. Not only have I seen Blake Shelton for $30 but the background was a lot nicer. Wichita, get a life soon, please.

Regarding “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”: How can we forget that Jane Fonda was (and is) one of the worst traitors in our history? Google her and see how she betrayed us during our troops’ time in Vietnam. She earned her nickname during that time.

I read where Fox Sports 1 is airing a new hourlong sports program. They have chosen 81-year-old Regis Philbin as host. Regis Philbin? Really? I guess Jim Carrey and Oprah were booked up.

Even Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon don’t change their own tires. Why should I?

It costs $9.75 for a beer at a Royals game. That’s sobering.
