The median family net worth in the United States did not drop 40 percent “under President Obama.” It dropped 40 percent from 2007 to 2010. Obama did not take office until January 2009, and none of his economic policies was approved by Congress until mid-2010.


After three and a half years, Obama continues to blame Bush and his administration for his failures. It’s long past time for Obama to put on his big-boy pants and start to take responsibility for his and his administration’s failures and not to continue to blame other people or circumstances.


Ever notice how a bad Republican president is followed by an even worse Democrat president? Nixon/Ford was followed by Carter, the first Bush was followed by Clinton, and the second Bush was followed by Obama. There is a correlation here.


How can anyone possible justify spending $1.2 million to fix up the Glassboro, N.J., train station, abandoned 40 years ago? Washington Democrats voted for this ridiculous waste of taxpayers’ money and Obama approved it. Remember in November.


I suspect that if all the people who don’t want to watch Fox News boycotted McDonald’s, McDonald’s would change the channel really fast.


The Wichita Police Department can get some good deals on used tanks from the Gulf War. That is better than an armored personnel carrier.


How are all of the storm-chasing “roofers” and home-repair companies supposed to work here and now in Dallas at the same time? Where are the car dealers supposed to get rid of all of those cars with “slight” hail damage now?


It’s too late for water fluoridation. Kids mostly drink pop, juice and milk.


The stripper during the sideshow at Old Cowtown Museum on June 2 was crazy. My 6- and 3-year-old grandsons did not know what she was doing, and I had a hard time explaining it. A stripper in the street at a family event, provocatively stripping down to a teddy, shaking her booty at the audience?


According to the National Safety Council, 80 percent of all parking lot accidents occur when one or more vehicles are in reverse gear. So it makes sense to back into a parking space, where you can see what is behind you.


After reading the Opinion Line the past few days, I am praying for a zombie apocalypse to weed out the stupidity that runs rampant in our state.


Nothing makes me lose faith in humanity quicker than reading the comments on articles at Kansas.com.
