President Obama hasn’t answered the obvious questions about why he intentionally misled us on guns to Mexico, Benghazi, IRS targeting conservative groups and health care. He says he didn’t knowingly lie about keeping your health plan. In court, the rule is, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.”
There is a simple fix to the controversy about adequate funding for K-12 schools in Kansas. Have the overwhelmingly Republican Legislature add the phrase “as determined by the legislature” to the part of the constitution that requires suitable funding for education, and see if the voters will back this amendment.
If 7,000 area kids are sent home every weekend with a backpack of food, then there are 7,000 parents who need to be investigated for child neglect.
Bill Clinton waited, waited and waited for the right time. Then it became time to pay back Obama for all the dirty dealings he dished out to Hillary. The dagger was twisted deep over Obama’s broken insurance plan promises.
The “Air Capital” moniker isn’t outdated. Wichita is still a major aircraft manufacturing and flight testing hub; it still fits. Perhaps Chicago should change its nickname to “Corrupt to the Core,” or New York to the “Big Rotten Apple.”
Why are Democrats hiding behind Kathleen Sebelius and not accountable for anything they do? Did you really think we would have better and cheaper health care after Washington took control?
I would like to know how much of the money people have saved because of our new state income-tax cut actually has been spent in Kansas.
The Republican establishment, of which our Sen. Jerry Moran is a member, would rather Democrats be elected than many tea party conservatives. Moran didn’t get to lead the National Republican Senatorial Committee without being in the “club.”
So quiet motorcycles are unsafe. Why does the manufacturer put mufflers on new ones? Can we sue them? If I take the mufflers off my car, it will be safer, too, right? I’m so confused.
Foster homes should not get one dime of money from the state. People who do foster care should do it for the love of the children, not as a moneymaking business.
Kansans are fortunate that Gov. Sam Brownback’s eagerness to implement his policies immediately after his inauguration has resulted in their disastrous results beginning to become evident well in advance of his re-election bid. Timing is everything.
Maybe we should create a North American health care system and be done with it. Canada seems to be the model people love to talk about. And no matter what system the U.S. has, a significant portion of the Mexican population is going to utilize it.
Wind turbines kill an estimated 573,000 birds each year, and thus routinely violate the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, but no wind farm has ever faced prosecution. Environmentalists are so in love with the dream of “free” energy from wind that these enterprises live an expensive but Obama-protected existence.
The price of gasoline sure has gone down quickly. Funny how free markets work.
I wish a bandwagon to nowhere would come through town, so all these folks who want to rename the airport after Ike could get on board and take their tax-dollar-wasting ideas with them.
Why don’t we just sell the naming rights to the airport? It would help defray some of the costs. Does anybody care what the name is anyway?
More states are moving toward legalizing marijuana. Kansas should be a leader, not a follower, in this movement. A taxed and regulated marijuana industry would be a gold mine for our state.
The NRA’s primary goal is to frighten us into buying more guns. It’s working, as it makes gun manufacturers and sellers rich at our expense while our lawmakers have become well-endowed puppets of the NRA.
The “Air Capital” moniker relates to building the planes only. Everything else is a bit of a rough landing. You have wind, sun, a river and flat terrain in abundance. Flow with it creatively and be unique, Wichita. That’s what attracts people.
I want Century II torn down immediately. I need the profits from the oil underneath it. I do not care about the water being contaminated. We can use fracking and have some vibrant earthquakes. Then we can advertise “Wichita – a city on the move.”
