If Newt Gingrich is the Republican nominee, we will have four more years of President Obama. Unrestrained by re-election, he will launch his full business- and job-killing vision upon the American people. God help our once-great nation.
What does how much Gingrich spent at Tiffany’s have to do with being president of the United States? It’s just liberals trying to bring down a person who has a good chance to take the presidency from Obama.
Talk about flip-flops. In 2002, Obama said he didn’t support a “dumb” war in Iraq. Now he wants credit for its success.
We need photo identification to drive or be a passenger on the airlines, trains, buses. What is wrong with requiring people to prove who they are before voting? We can all agree that all who qualify should vote. But only once, and only if indeed they are qualified. Get your photo card, or move to another country that does not believe in the rule of law.
Liberals (The Eagle editorial board) never like it when conservatives (Americans for Prosperity) play by the rules made by Democrats and still manage to succeed, like forcing a public vote on the Ambassador Hotel project.
I rarely agree with The Eagle editorial board, but this time it’s right. As a part of Americans for Prosperity, I have to say I am disappointed in the organization regarding the hotel development. AFP has completely misled the public regarding the funding of this project.
The mess over the Ambassador Hotel is why the founders set up a representative democracy, not a direct one. They knew direct democracy would lead to folks who will only vote for their own narrow interests. Representatives are elected to make decisions for everyone’s best interests. That means sometimes taking a community where some don’t want go but should.
Why aren’t our law enforcers ticketing the drivers without lights on in the dark or near dark? Take action before they kill themselves and others with their invisibility. It’s a problem in town and on highways.
Some kind of regulation should be in place to limit the length and number of commercials shown on TV shows. The interruptions never end. Wichita local news and network news are among the worst offenders. It is almost impossible to view these shows.
