The FBI says it is monitoring the social media but is not focusing on any specific group or individual. Would somebody please reach down into J. Edgar Hoover’s coffin and wipe the smile off his face.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a tax loophole, tax-free medical insurance, a farm subsidy and let him exploit the labor of an illegal alien, and he votes Republican for a lifetime.
Never miss a local story.
We have transferred $15 trillion from the producers to the takers in America, or roughly equal to our entire national debt. Yet poverty levels are unchanged after 45 years. This proves the Democrats’ harebrained anti-poverty programs only create dependency.
Parents, direct your anger over school closings at the guy who slashed funding. The superintendent and board are doing all they can with the money they have. Sending them hate mail and boycotting state assessments will not help. Call Topeka.
Whenever I heard someone referring to an elitist, arrogant, pompous, dismissive politician, President Obama came to mind. Now I have to think they are referring to Gov. Sam Brownback.
The best measure of real progress from Brownback’s leadership is the intensity of complaints from progressives, academics and the media.
Have you ever noticed how Kathleen Sebelius looks distressed when she is standing by Obama?
The state should charge $5,500 for a new marriage license. Successful couples could receive a full refund check after 20 years. Lawyers and judges would have to look for new jobs.
Wow, these guys are good. One day the Wichita City Council passes an incentive for local builders. The very next day news breaks that home sales are up across the Midwest, including Wichita.
Why should someone buying a new house rather than an existing one get a tax cut? The city government is picking winners and losers. It should mind its own business and let the free market decide which houses get sold and which don’t.
The City Council has no business providing a moratorium on property tax as incentive to a few people who were probably going to build a house anyway. I am tired of the City Council pouring taxpayer money down the throats of developers and builders.
We need more hotel rooms downtown. I had out-of-town family visiting Exploration Place and there were no rooms available nearby. They had to stay at a crummy place on East Kellogg.
We just returned from back east. When we said we were from Wichita, it was amazing how many people responded, “Oh, isn’t that where BTK was from and where they killed that doctor in his church?” Great legacy.
It has been truly refreshing to see two outstanding role models like Tim Tebow and Jeremy Lin in professional sports. They are few and far between.
