Opinion Line Extra (Dec. 18)

Why do the Sedgwick County commissioners waste our tax money and time tooting their horn about what is automatically expected and required of them – the repair and replacement of roads, bridges, culverts and ditches, and storm-debris disposal?

If Wichita could install cameras to catch the idiots who run red lights, it would be a major cash influx for the city.

The police tell us to lock our cars and hide our packages. The police should keep these lowlifes in jail after arresting them, or tattoo an “L” for “loser” on their forehead so we will know who they are. It’s the same people doing the same crimes.

People gripe about giving welfare to less-fortunate people but say nothing about giving corporate welfare to rich companies. If you do not want to give people welfare, then give them a job. I am sure they would prefer that as long as it’s a good-paying job. People want to work.

In 1954 I was out of work. The guy at the employment office wanted me to draw unemployment. I said wanted a job, not state funds. He was in shock. I got a job.

Nelson Mandela never walked on water or turn water into wine. That is, unless I never heard about it.

Finally we have a pope who’s doing what Jesus would do.

In regard to the far right-wing critics of the pope: They prove only their own ignorance. Not only do they not understand Marxism, they completely misunderstand the Christian gospel as well.

Anti-Christians are funny. Build your Festivus poles, your satan creches, whatever. It won’t change the fact that God is God, Jesus is His Son, and Jesus sacrificed for all who will accept it. If you don’t want to believe, leave it be.

I will continue to say “Merry Christmas” during this season, regardless of which store I am in. And if the store makes public its desire to not respect the Christian faith of our nation, it will no longer get my patronage or that of my friends. Merry Christmas to all.

If you’re offended by the use of “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays,” then you better not look up the true origins of Christmas.

Isn’t it time to put “Christ” back in “Christian”?

President Obama doesn’t need to go to the gym. He runs up and down the steps to Air Force One every day.

“Ja-bare-uh” is the ace and “Ja-bar-uh” is the carpet family.

Greenwich Road – is it “green-witch” or “grin-itch”?

Stupidity killed Paul Walker.

The basketball team may bring in money for the school, but sports are not the purpose behind the university – education is. It’s extremely frustrating to WSU students who can’t find a place to park for class because people want to watch a dumb game.
