Those who think Israel is a bully need to look at the facts. Iran and the rest of the Middle East want to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. That would make anyone fight back. When your enemy hides behind women and children, what does that say about it?

How quickly some have forgotten that the Palestinians danced in the streets on Sept. 11, 2001. They elected Hamas, a terrorist organization, to their government, and they lob rockets into Israel. Allegations of Israel being the aggressor are left-loon garbage. Israel has every right to defend herself.

Israel just slays me. It professes to want peace and then does everything it can to start a war. It lobs bombs into neighborhoods to kill one guy and threatens pre-emptive strikes against Iran. It’s obvious Benjamin Netanyahu will only be happy when World War III breaks out.

You would think President Obama would have been in the United States brokering a deal on the fiscal cliff problem instead of roaming around Asia. This problem could cause a recession in the USA. We are running out of time.

The first of many unannounced tax increases stemming from Obamacare: Contribution limits for medical flexible spending plans are being reduced from $5,000 to $2,500. Thanks for voting to let this continue.

Now is the time for Charles and David Koch to start buying and investing in the 2016 presidential campaign. The Brownback-Kobach ticket will be a sure winner.

Gov. Sam Brownback must be fully confident that Kathleen Sebelius will implement a fabulous health exchange for Kansas. As a senator, he did vote to confirm her to head the Department of Health and Human Services.

Alcoholic beverages are another “fat” problem.

To the woman driving the white car 55 to 75 mph, mostly in the left lane, on westbound Kellogg Wednesday morning: You do not have the right to risk everyone’s life so you can put on your makeup while driving.

To the morning commuters at Rock Road and Central trying to turn into Starbucks: What exactly does the sign “Do not block thru traffic” mean to you? I have had several near misses of getting rear-ended.

Let’s hear it for the “rednecks”: Brad Keselowski wins the Sprint Cup.

Just because you have several degrees does not make you any hotter.
