With the enormous increase in U.S. production of natural gas, the prices of almost everything we buy are being reduced. Even the International Monetary Fund, no friend of free enterprise, has acknowledged the law of supply and demand is working to everyone’s advantage.
I just returned from an awesome concert in Tulsa. In a few weeks, I’m going to a concert in Kansas City. Why do I still have to travel out of town? Why can’t I see these concerts at Intrust Bank Arena? Were my tax dollars wasted?
If North Korea messed with Russia the way it does the United States, Russia would level that country. This country should not have stopped Gen. Douglas MacArthur from doing his job. Now let’s go finish the job.
Seeing the four ex-presidents and current president together last week, all I could think of was four rich white guys on government welfare, and one black man with a full-time job.
I agree that “illegal immigrant” is very poor English. However, “undocumented immigrant” is equally incorrect. If they are illegal or undocumented, they cannot be immigrants. They are aliens and therefore committing a crime by standing on U.S. soil. Law enforcement has no lawful choice but to arrest and either imprison or deport them.
We tend to forget the distant past, but what about Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt? Enough American blood and gold have been wasted in the area recently. Politicians should know better than to support either side of the lose-lose situation in Syria.
What I would like to see right now is some good, old-fashioned global warming.
Heaven forbid an old school would have be used for a law enforcement training center. You can learn so much more in a $30 million space.
The first words of the Second Amendment are “a well regulated militia.” Gun fanatics and the NRA don’t seem to read that part.
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with an M1A2 main battle tank. I sure hope that they don’t fall into the wrong person’s hands.
To all the wonderful people who plan, execute and fund the Kansas Honor Flights to visit the World War II memorials in Washington, D.C.: Heartfelt thanks from this 92-year-old combat veteran. And to all who met us coming and going at the airport: Your well wishes were greatly appreciated.
The reason for the drought these past couple years is because we spent millions on the Cowskin Creek flood-control program.
When are Mayor Carl Brewer and the other Wichita City Council members going to get off their duffs and vote to bring water into Wichita from El Dorado Lake? The project should have started many months ago.
The kids need shoes. The refrigerator is broken. The car needs new brakes. We are three months behind on the rent. I need dental work. My husband hasn’t paid child support in two years. I just got paid, and I’m going to the casino to win some money.
After more than four years of studies and delays, it’s time for President Obama to stop blocking construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. America needs the energy. Also, we could use the thousands of new jobs that would be made available. Too many excuses. We need it now.
It was refreshing to see all five of our living presidents, despite their differences, appearing together in a ceremony.
The shoe bomber’s father warned that he was becoming radicalized. Then we just got lucky. We were warned by Russia about one of the alleged Boston bombers. Federal agencies failed. Maybe if they spent more time on investigatory training and less on sensitivity training and other meaningless drivel, they could solve these ahead of time.
The next time I have the chance to tell people about Wichita, I may mention the Shockers. But I know I will mention the cars that pulled over, the people who stopped and stood in reverence, and the young people who politely called out “sorry for your loss” as our funeral procession passed.
The Wichita Public Library and USD 259 should consider swapping buildings. The library could use USD 259’s administration building and USD 259 could use the Central Library for administrators and technology programs. Regarding Southeast High: How many homeowners move because their home no longer is “up-to-date”?
I find it interesting that whenever there is going to be a budget cut, whether local or federal, it always involves police, fire or air traffic controllers, never research into the sex life of an amoeba or a crab.
