Opinion Line (March 31)

The first time I voted against slots. I’ve changed my mind, and now these idiot politicians are telling me I can’t vote again until I’m 73. What country are we in? That’s not the American way. What next?

Opinion Line (March 30)

So the Senate and President Susan Wagle don’t want people to be able to vote for a casino in Sedgwick County for the next 18 years. And people say that our government is not trying to take away our rights. Have senators forgotten how that question on slot machines was misworded and misunderstood the last time?

Opinion Line (March 29)

As an American citizen, I would like to see our “world police force” back off. Ukraine, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan are not our problem, and it is not our responsibility to intervene in their affairs. NATO forces seem to be 90 percent American and 10 percent from other countries.

Opinion Line (March 28)

It is interesting to see how fast the Wichita City Council could come up with $9.7 million in a few weeks for a parking garage renovation, but it has yet, after 10 years, to find $30 million (based on a decade-old cost estimate) for a new library. Follow the money.

Opinion Line Extra (March 28)

Elected officials should not be extremely conservative or liberal. They should be independent thinkers. Yet, with campaigns costing millions, a candidate’s principles are seductively influenced by wealthy contributors who have self-ingratiating agendas. Want to win an election? Think their way. So who’s watching out for the everyday people?

President Obama’s performance at the meeting in the Hague was not so pretty. Disheveled and uneven, in both countenance and speech, he showed the whole world how weak we are. Even his strongest supporters see it. The amateur has tapped out.

Opinion Line Extra (March 27)

The agenda of the left is becoming very clear to everyone else, as they just call those who disagree names like “bigots,” “haters” and “homophobes,” and will never discuss the merits of our argument. They have shouted us down in the past, but no more. Stand strong for right.

It is very comforting to see the Supreme Court and the governor of Kansas working on education funding. Everything is always easier when people work together. Now, about that health care thing….

Opinion Line (March 26)

Renewable portfolio standard supporters are really saying to keep the wealth transfer from taxpayers and ratepayers going because it benefits a few Kansas taxing authorities, businesses, employees and farmers.

Opinion Line (March 25)

How WSU played the game on Sunday brought honor and national recognition to the team and changed the minds of many jaded sports commentators who now believe that WSU can play with the best. The team should be so proud.

Opinion Line Extra (March 25)

Thank you, President Obama, for health care and forcing the Republicans to show their true colors: anti-women and against the middle class, education, labor unions, the poor, the handicapped, the old and children. We will not forget.

Opinion Line (March 24)

Russia can invade another country and organize and win an election by almost 100 percent in that country in less than a week. President Obama and his incompetents have four years to get Obamacare and its website up and running just to sell insurance, and they can’t do it.

A reader said those who complain about Gov. Sam Brownback “don’t pay enough in taxes to amount to squat.” The ones not paying taxes in Kansas are the wealthy – doctors, lawyers and business owners who would be the biggest supporters of Brownback’s “give to the rich” policies and not likely complainers.

Opinion Line (March 23)

Taxes like Wichita’s new hotel tax are easy to pass. But it is a dollar-trading scheme, because I pay your tax if I stay in a Wichita hotel but you will pay my town when you visit. Both of us end up with less money to spend on other attractions.

Opinion Line (March 22)

I would have liked to see gay people lining the streets as a Fred Phelps funeral cortege went by, to show respect for his grieving family in a way that Phelps and his family did not show others.

Opinion Line (March 21)

You’d better “fear the wheat” and Van Vleet. It’s never too Early for a Baker to rise and shine. You might want to pick Cotton, or it could be kind of rotten for those teams that don’t. Go, Shocks.

Opinion Line Extra (March 21)

Not to take anything away from the Shockers’ stellar season, but things seem off-kilter when Wichita State gets $555 million in visibility, the coach is a millionaire and the players who made it all happen get beat-up bodies and a degree that may or may not provide them a job.

Opinion Line (March 20)

So if the Russians and their previous territories wish to start fighting among themselves, why should the West, particularly the U.S., get involved other than to keep any spillover from happening?

Opinion Line Extra (March 20)

It is absolutely angering and frustrating that with all of the problems in the U.S. and Wichita, President Obama and Mayor Carl Brewer are spending time picking basketball teams. I suggest they immediately lose their current jobs so that they can spend all of their time focusing on sports.

Opinion Line (March 19)

As a KU grad, I’m rooting for KU. As a Kansan, I’m rooting for KU, K-State and WSU. The Shockers have wanted to face the level of competition that their in-state brothers play to prove that they’re worthy of their lofty ranking, so now is their time to shine.
