It appears that the Koch brothers spent a lot of money very foolishly in this election.


My right-wing buddy calls me a liberal and tells me that I don’t like Charles Koch because I am jealous of his wealth. He cannot explain, however, why I like T. Boone Pickens, who also has more money than me, and why I work for him for free in the effort to eliminate our dependence on OPEC oil.


The Republicans act surprised they lost the election. You wouldn’t think they would be surprised, since they alienated women voters with their position on abortion.


This just goes to show that voters in the Midwest, Southeast and in other red states are people with principles who do not want things handed to them on a platter. All of those voting for President Obama for a second term are people who choose to be the ones wanting free rides and free government handouts. So sad.


Obama getting re-elected was a sad day for the real American worker and businesses. With Bill Clinton trying to be involved, there is no real hope.


Well, it is official. The elections proved that Americans are truly stupid and misinformed by the liberal media. Gullible enough to usher in a dictator. Way to go.


A radio announcer best described our election: We now have more people in the wagon than there are people willing to pull the wagon. Welcome to Greece on steroids.


The biggest threat to the U.S. are the uneducated voters, and you saw that by Obama being re-elected.


The Sedgwick County election commissioner needs to go. There is no longer any trust in her office. The buck stops with her. Bill Gale implemented this whole system, and he had none of these problems. Have you noticed that none of the problems are her fault?


Now that fluoride was voted down, we can go back to being a cow town.


The election proves, once again, that the people of this town are intellectually and morally on the wrong side of history and the world is right when it refers the them as Wichidiotans.


Before the new Academy store opens, it has made a very good impression. It is a good neighbor because the many exterior lights are shielded from the sky. Down the street there are many lights pointed skyward, blocking the beautiful night sky with light pollution.
