Wichita water rates will continue to go up every year more than the rate of inflation. Now the city wants its paying customers to donate an extra amount each month to pay the water bill for others? It is hard enough for most people to provide for their own family.
Do the people who drive around with their fog lights realize how blinding they are? They should just drive with their brights on; it’s pretty much the same. It should be illegal. It is dangerous.
If the United States goes to war with China, will China loan us the money to do it?
To the person wishing “my paychecks were what they were four years ago”: It sounds like you need a union where you work.
Gov. Sam Brownback is right to not be sucked in by the federal government’s promise to reimburse the state for Medicaid expansion costs. The press is rife with accounts of the feds’ refusal of payment to local governments for services rendered.
The old term “Murphy’s Law” should now be known as “Sebelius’ Law.”
In what many would consider to be one of the most significant votes in U.S. Senate history, Senate Democrats voted overwhelmingly last week to end the long-standing filibuster rule. The Eagle story concerning the vote appeared on Page 10A and was headlined, “Democrats lessen GOP’s power to block.” Just some food for thought.
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.
This Thanksgiving be thankful both for things you have and things you don’t have.
The people elected John Kennedy by a narrow margin. When he was killed, this country had never been more together. Yet 50 years later, we have never been so apart. What happened to our nation?
As an ex-prisoner of war during the Korean War, I do not trust Secretary of State John Kerry and this Obama administration. This reminds me of Dec. 7, 1941.
Why people like George Zimmerman and O.J. Simpson, who arguably have escaped their just deserts, don’t have the smarts to thank their lucky stars they’re free and then go home and live quiet lives is dumbfounding.
It’s true that no one is forcing you to shop on Thanksgiving Day. However, being open forces employees to work, taking precious time away from families. This is wrong. I will not shop at stores open on Thanksgiving.
I hear they are remaking the movie “Liar Liar” starring President Obama.
Why is it bad that some of our best and brightest people at our universities make more than $250,000? Is this just a liberal rich bashing? Perhaps we should hire only those qualified to make $30,000.
I’ll go paperless with my water bill when the city removes that $1 charge for paying online.
A huge cargo plane landed at the wrong airport in Wichita. Was their Garmin broke? As much as mine chews my tail for a wrong turn, I can’t even imagine what theirs had to say. Maybe “Recalculating, you’re getting a new job.”
If Obamacare is the death of liberalism, then the tea party will be the death of conservatism. Maybe the rest of us will meet in the middle and have a functional government.
Mom and Dad: I’m in the backseat watching you and watching out for you. Please do not text or use your cellphone while I am riding with you. The life you save could be mine.
Government’s solution for everything is, “Just give us more money and we’ll take care of it for you.” It will not stop until there is no more money to take from us. In 1776 there was a revolution for the same reason. Maybe we need another one.
