Since the taxpayers invested our money, we should receive a portion of the profits of the city-owned Hyatt Regency Hotel and county-owned Intrust Bank Arena during the NCAA tournaments and beyond. This is the biggest gripe: We pay and pay but never get anything in return.
The Keystone XL pipeline is supposed to transport crude from Canada’s oil sands to refineries in the Gulf of Mexico. Canada makes money, and the oil companies make money when they sell the refined products to the highest bidder. How does that morph into energy independence for the U.S.?
From 2009 to 2011, Obama and the Democrats held power in both houses of Congress and he did nothing on immigration. Now that he has neither house of Congress, he’s ready to act? Playing politics or incompetent, it’s one or the other.
I see the Wichita Police Department is testing technology that does indiscriminate scanning and analysis of license plates (read: owner of car) it sees on the road including time, date and location. This is nothing less than a shameful mass surveillance on U.S. citizens without a specific warrant.
It’s an inconvenient truth that the upper Midwest and Northeast are getting record amounts of snow in November just as President Obama pledges $3 billion to a United Nations committee “fighting” climate change.
As a woman, I get so fed up with these women who accuse men of sexual assault decades after the fact. Now it’s Bill Cosby whose reputation and ultimately his livelihood will be affected by unsubstantiated accusations. Present and prove your case when it happens or not at all.
If we have a water problem in Wichita, why do the illustrious leaders in the city let golf courses use water from above and below the ground while we spend money to replenish the water supply? The golf courses do not have to be green.
Some seem to think that the Republicans, now controlling both houses of Congress, will push through a bunch of new laws. That’s not how it works. They have a majority, but not enough to override a presidential veto. They’ll pass laws the president will veto. Nothing will change.
You vote Republican. They stab you in the back. You complain. They promise you the world. You vote Republican. They stab you in the back. You complain. They promise you the world. You vote Republican, etc. That’s an abusive relationship.
Some Republican said the sun is shining on Kansas. I submit that Sam Brownback’s policies can be likened to holding a magnifying glass over those of us he did not give a huge tax break and watching us burn to a crisp. That’s not the kind of sunshine we need.
A leading architect of Obamacare, MIT professor Jonathan Gruber, said that Democrats misled the public in order to pass it. He went on to say the stupidity of the American voter was critical for it to pass – well, of slightly over half of the voters anyway.
