Opinion Line Extra (Dec. 6)

At Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s request, Attorney General Derek Schmidt wrote a legal opinion permitting concealed-carry licensees to pack guns into voting stations. Any illegal aliens trying to stuff the ballot box in my precinct will be canceled out by Mr. Smith & Wesson making sure my vote counts.

Considering the trillions of dollars that China has invested in America, perhaps it should send troops to monitor the 2014 elections. With Republican voter-suppression of minorities, the elderly and women, the Chinese may need to ensure our elections are fair and square.

Seriously, I don’t know how much more incompetent Kathleen Sebelius could be.

Should it not be a requirement that the president of the United States have basic leadership skills?

So the Democrats are the only ones to try to perform a malicious and deliberate destruction of this country? How soon the Republicans forget Nixon, Reagan and both of the Bush guys.

Obama has ruined our once-great nation. With scandal after scandal and lie after lie, he needs to go. We forced Nixon out of office for much less.

Obama is not wasting money by helping the poor and uninsured. You forget George Bush and the lie he told about the WMDs in Iraq. It started a war that cost billions of dollars and thousands of young lives, whereas the ACA is saving lives.

I hope, at election time, the American people remember the politicians who were bought by the NRA.

I am a 76-year-old Republican, and I am going to stop and think twice before voting for any Republican incumbent candidate. This is my way of telling the Republican Party just how disappointed I am with Republican politicians.

I thought Wichita was developing something along the river that “everyone” could enjoy – a large boat ramp area, creative riverside seating and an amphitheater. Who will enjoy apartments?

D.C. politicians are not the only ones who intend to keep borrowing and spending beyond our means. The local boys and girls want to stay involved, too.

Sad to see innovators like Donald Beggs and Ed Hammond leave our universities. With the growth and prestige these people provided, Kansas can be proud. Now we have John Bardo at WSU – a gigantic step backward.

In regard to complaints about the wages at Walmart: This is a free country. One does not have to shop or work there.

Costco does indeed have a different business model than Walmart. But that still does not excuse Walmart padding its profits on the backs of the U.S. taxpayers, who cover many Walmart workers with food stamps and the like.

On the recent foggy days, why weren’t the police giving out tickets to all the drivers who did not have their car lights on?
