Much of the social history of the Western world over the decades has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good. I’ll drink to that.
Senate President Susan Wagle claimed the “truth” is that ALEC is about finding “effective solutions” (Aug. 25 Opinion). However, alarm bells should go off when those who have a vested interest in supporting this “educational” nonprofit organization say they are telling us the truth. ALEC is about ALEC.
President Obama and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement, while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.
Everyone whining about businesses cutting hours and insurance because of Obamacare was told this would happen. You demanded it anyway. Unfortunately, all of us are reaping what you sowed.
The latest numbers show that for every new full-time job created, six part-time jobs are created. There is nothing wrong with that. After all, even our president only works part time.
To the person blaming the illegal immigrants for working for minimum wage or less: I don’t see you on the rooftops putting down shingles in 100-degree heat, or working on paving projects in the same conditions. It is you who has the problem.
When Obama took office, gas was $1.89 a gallon. Five years later, Obama and his oil buddies have it up to $3.55. That is change we didn’t need.
Yes, I voted for Obama – both times. He was the lesser of the two evils.
Cultures based on ancient and completely outdated religious laws don’t even come close to meshing with democracy. Democracy requires respect for the beliefs of others and is much harder than it looks. Dictatorship is what enforces their strict, intolerant culture in the Middle East. It fits.
I have signed the petition and totally agree that the new airport should be renamed the Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower International Airport and that “ICT” should be retained. What better way to make a new statement for a new state-of-the-art airport than by naming it for our very own Ike?
The Wichita airport needs replacing if for no other reason than the waiting area for arrivals is horrible and the concession area is even worse. But KCI is user-friendly and has great parking. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – especially at $1.2 billion.
Is it really necessary to spend so much of the television news programs repeating the weather report when nothing is happening in the weather? The same goes for constant updates on summer thunderstorms.
