I certainly hope that there is a specially hot section of Hades reserved for lowlifes who steal metal urns off graves and wheelchair ramps of the handicapped. All this for a few dollars at the scrap yard. How do they sleep at night?

What is wrong with helping people less fortunate than we are? I am so glad I am able to help, rather than being one needing help. Most people just need a good-paying job to raise their families. We need to create jobs for Americans.

Minimum education plus minimum skill sets plus minimum ambition equals minimum wage. Flipping burgers was not designed to be a career path. If you’re older than 21 and still in this type of job, it’s long past time to reassess your life objectives. If you choose not to, quit complaining.

With greed and crass behavior overwhelming the spirit of giving during this holiday season, I think Christians should be eager to take Jesus out of retail. Happy Holidays!

Are you better off today than you were a year ago?

Obama said he ran for president to make sure our economy works for everyone. Great. How’s it working for you if you are not on food stamps, welfare, Medicaid etc.? What he really wants is government reliance rather that economic mobility.

They tell us which lightbulbs we can use, what foods our children can eat at school, and now what health insurance we need to have. In the words of William Wallace: Freedom!

Since the NSA has gotten tons of information on each one of us, why don’t we let the NSA sign us up on HealthCare.gov and we’ll all be done with it?

At every turn, our elected officials form a committee and travel somewhere spending tax dollars. Isn’t the vast majority of what they seek available online or at the end of a telephone conversation? If they can’t make a decision on their own, why were they elected?

Hey, Wichita: I need $40.2 million in industrial revenue bonds or I may consider taking my talent elsewhere. Wichita businesses, get in line.

The state civil service workers in Kansas need to remember the representatives who are on the House Appropriations Committee come next election, because they want to get rid of classified employees. It’s enough to make me want to vote Democrat next election.

If you can read this, thank a teacher.

I like the way editorial cartoonist Richard Crowson tells it like it is, including with his depiction of two local government officials who try to block whatever is positive in Sedgwick County (Dec. 1 Opinion). Thank heaven for Crowson and a 3-2 majority.

Before I care what people really think, I first have to be convinced that they can really think.

Why is it that the people who talk the loudest have the least to say?
