To my knowledge, the only Republicans to ever show support for Obamacare are our own Sedgwick County Commissioners Jim Skelton and Dave Unruh. They vote like a liberal Democrat so often they should change their party affiliation so we could see their true colors.


I question the propriety of the County Commission’s off-agenda resolutions. An agenda is to inform interested citizens of actions to be discussed and possibly taken by their elected representatives. What was so pressing with the recent resolution that it could not wait for one week to be properly placed on an agenda?


With all the school funding talk, why not go to the people ultimately responsible for the children? The parents. Either ask the parents to provide more for their child’s education, or start charging tuition for public schools.


If the city fathers were serious about water waste, they would outlaw fescue.


The most dangerous thing in American government is a liberal with good intentions.


No wonder relationships within families are going downhill. Working on Thanksgiving takes away time that should be spent together. It also shows that the focus is not on each other but on spending money. This greedy practice must be put to a stop. Boycott the stores that are open.


Marcellus shale produces 12 billion cubic feet of natural gas each day. If the Marcellus shale region were a country, it would rank third in the world, after Russia and the United States. What a wonderful bonanza.


Greed is killing our planet. Even the wind farms’ destruction of birds and bats is part of the problem.


Attention, America: If you’re kicking in my front door or want to crack my skull, you might get shot. Sorry. Seconds count; skin color doesn’t.


If your vehicle is stolen when you left it running and unattended, your insurance (i.e., other people) should not pay for that vehicle. You had complicity in its theft.


Have you ever played the game “Rather”? Would you rather have a red-hot needle stabbed into your eye while bamboo splinters were driven under your fingernails, or listen to one more Justin Bieber song? Tough choice.


I want to thank the couple who paid for our dinner at Texas Roadhouse because my husband is a World War II veteran. It was greatly appreciated.
