It’s interesting how many people heard President Obama’s “apology” but not his vow to bring the killers to justice. And unlike President Bush, Obama follows up on his vows.

So Muslims are angry over a film about their god. Well, my God, the one and only God, and Christians have been ridiculed for thousands of years. Get over it. America happens to be a free country, at least for now. I thought Islam and these other religions were supposed to be peaceful. Right?

Beware, all Republican voters. The Republican politicians who want your vote now are not your father’s nor your grandfather’s Republicans. They are a new vicious breed who eat their own and enjoy biting the hands that feed them. Follow your heart and vote smart for a change.

So the State Objections Board delayed deciding whether Obama would appear on the Kansas ballot, and the State Board of Education is likely to discuss evolution again. I cannot believe Kansas could attract any legitimate business to move here. We are the laughingstock of the nation.

Kris Kobach seemingly has not had enough to do as secretary of state, and traveling to help other states write immigration laws has not been fulfilling either. So to gain the additional national spotlight he seems to crave, he embarked on this latest venture of sheer harassment and political grandstanding, making Kansans look like a pack of fools.

People should give Obama a break. After all, it is his first job.

Message to the “birthers” regarding the president’s citizenship: Google it. The only requirement to be a citizen of the U.S. is have at least one parent who is a citizen of the U.S. Get over it.

Why do politicians have to wear a hard hat and have a shovel to have their picture taken when a new project is begun?

The mainstream media continue to be complicit in the giant cover-up of voter fraud and corruption in this country by denying it even exists and railing against voter-ID laws. Requiring an official ID to vote is decades overdue.

Michael O’Donnell’s latest debacle regarding his housing deal confirms what I have long suspected: An endorsement by the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce PAC does not guarantee that the candidate is qualified or fit to hold public office.

“Phone zombies” – I like that. I have seen them all over, ignoring their kids while they are walking.
