So it turns out the winner of the first presidential debate was Big Bird.

Let Big Bird moderate the next presidential debate.

Faced with a debate opponent, versus a teleprompter and an adoring crowd, President Obama showed us an empty suit.

So Al Gore blamed Obama’s poor debate performance on the Denver altitude. I’m not sure that makes much sense, but it’s definitely scary that Gore was at one time the vice president with that reasoning. It’s still not as scary as Obama in the president’s chair, however.

Voting for a man because of his skin color doesn’t make someone a racist. Thinking there’s more than one race does. We’re all humans.

“Redistribution” simply means taking it from somebody who didn’t earn it and doesn’t deserve it and giving it to a different person who didn’t earn it and doesn’t deserve it.

Obama has never worked with the Republicans. From day one, it was his way or the highway. He lied; he had no intention of trying to bring the two parties together. Mitt Romney will work with both sides. He showed that in Massachusetts.

Do you suppose after this presidential election, if the Republicans conclude that the majority of women voters voted Democrat, there will be a whole new crop of voter-suppression laws aimed at women for the 2016 election?

The Israelis have been stealing land from Palestinian families for years, and now they complain that someone else might soon have the bomb. This is a problem they created and they need to learn to live with it, the same way we had to live with the Russians having the bomb.

How does a public school ID prove that a person is a U.S. citizen and can legally vote? Many of the kids going to school are in the country illegally. Therefore, they are not citizens of this country and cannot vote.

What gives construction workers the right to make a mess on someone’s property that borders the property that they are working on? Who do these construction workers think they are to steal electricity or water from a property other than the one they are working on? This is called property damage and theft in my book.

The new morning host on B98-FM needs to be more professional and drop the word “like,” which is so very childish and annoying.
