In the United States, an affair with a beautiful young woman has cost a four-star general and CIA director his job and reputation. In France, it would have gotten him another medal.

If Kay Summersby’s claim of an affair with Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower was true, and it had been found out in 1944, would Eisenhower have had to resign before D-Day?

I think Gens. David Petraeus and John Allen have proved once and for all that we should not allow heterosexuals in the military.

If ex-Defense Secretary Robert Gates says China is such a growing military threat to the U.S. and not to cut the military budget, why should President Obama proceed with the Keystone XL pipeline and help ship oil from Canada to China so the Chinese can use it against us?

GOP – “greedy over petroleum.” Keep the tax credits for oil but ditch the wind credits?

As we get closer to Obamacare, it becomes more obvious that the law will do exactly the opposite of what was intended. Health care will be neither more affordable nor more available, and the law will have disastrous consequences for the employment of full-time employees.

The reason Obama wants so badly to tax the rich is that by the time his second term is up, they will be the only ones with money left.

I hope the Republicans and tea partiers keep banging their heads against the wall over Obama’s re-election. They can only see red – while the rest of us see red, white and blue. The advantage is ours.

Christians, we must fight this ungodly practice of “gay marriage” with all we have. Now we have a president who supports “gay marriage.” Shame on the Christians who voted for him. I still have a right to express my opinion, and now you have it.

Maybe we should put evolution to a vote.

The city shouldn’t even be into golfing. This land should be turned into public gardens.

Very little is mentioned about the Korean War. As the spouse of a Korean veteran, I feel that Korea is a forgotten war.

Many, many thanks to all of the restaurants in Wichita that were so generous in honoring the veterans on their day with free meals, appetizers, desserts, etc. Please know it was all so very appreciated.
