So one year ago today, Boeing was awarded the tanker contract and recommitted to Wichita as it being the tanker finishing center. What do you bet closing the Wichita site was already on the Boeing radar at that point? Can you believe anything else Boeing tells congressmen, employees or investors?
The argument that allowing more stores to sell alcohol will create jobs is as phony as a $7 bill. All that will happen is that the person who stocks the shelves with the green beans will then go over and stock the shelves with the alcohol.
Never miss a local story.
Religious fanatics don’t want abortion? Fine. They also don’t want contraceptives? Don’t contraceptives prevent the need for abortion? So have the kid but deny them food later? Real churchy.
Want to fix America? Bring home the troops and put them on border patrol, stop foreign aid, deport illegals, drug-test welfare recipients, no more welfare money for more babies, put a 20-year moratorium on federal hiring, and no lifetime perks for members of Congress.
So it’s OK for the Kochs to try to influence elected officials and federal judges, but it’s wrong for other citizens to protest that?
Where are all the enraged Muslim protesters when Islamic terrorists bomb and deface Muslim mosques and kill innocent Muslims praying in the mosques? An accidental burning of the Quran is worse?
The president laughed that people would actually think you can get more oil by drilling. Actually, if he’d get out of the way and let drilling happen, we would have much more oil.
Oh, my. I forgot to thank George Bush when I had to pay $5 a gallon for gas back in 2008.
Obama isn’t concerned about gas because he will have all the money he wants to buy gas for his car when he leaves office. He is blaming the Republicans again. He won’t take any blame for anything.
We’re just taking a page from their playbook. If Obama can nix the Keystone XL pipeline and its thousands of construction jobs, certainly Wichitans can do the same for the Ambassador Hotel project with far fewer jobs.
The new giant sucking sound we are hearing is when a “downtown developer” walks by City Hall – the sound of sucking tax dollars from more worthy Wichita projects to their own get-rich projects.
Newt Gingrich reminds me of Phineas T. Bluster on “Howdy Doody.”
It’s tough trying to raise children in today’s world. Parenting is not for the self-absorbed. Rick Santorum is correct when he says America will not remain great if we allow families to deteriorate. It is a challenge, but parenting is not for sissies.
People need to pay attention to what prescriptions they are picking up at the pharmacy. If they send someone to pick up their medication, they need to tell the person what it is. Pharmacies cannot legally take a prescription back.
Why don’t people use headlights? When the sun is down, it’s raining, foggy, etc. It’s not that difficult. A clue: When you look around and everyone else has headlights on, use yours. It’s not just common sense, it’s the law.
