“A government with the policy of rob Peter to pay Paul can be assured of the support of Paul.” Sound familiar?
We do not need immigration reform. What we need, as with most laws and rules, is enforcement of what already exists. I’m glad to see ICE has begun increased enforcement in this area.
I aged 15 years worrying over this presidential election. Although looking older, I’m breathing much easier now. We definitely dodged a bullet when Mitt Romney lost the election. Now if we could only oust Sam Brownback and Kris Kobach, my world would be nearly perfect – nearly.
“Vote with your feet,” Kobach said – good advice from a politician who takes every opportunity to travel outside Kansas. I and many other Republicans who have not drunk the Brownback Kool-Aid will be “kicking” the two of them out of office with the first opportunity.
Most of the older men who are complaining about this country are likely the ones who were draft dodgers, hiding out in college and running off to Canada because they might get killed rather than paying their dues to live in this country.
Let us all sing the praises of President Obama, and pray to him for deliverance from the evil insurance companies and the greedy doctors.

The prospect of government bureaucrats dictating health care is truly frightening. There is no road to prosperity and happiness other than education, diligence and prudent planning. Accepting “free stuff” from government is very dangerous, because it is the siren song of dependency.
When you are complaining and bringing in $250,000, you need to look at what you’re buying. Jewelry? Vehicles? Entertainment? You can afford a little more tax. And there is no reason a healthy person needs welfare more than three years. Pay up, sucker.
Cal Thomas is normally so far off base it is not even funny, but he was right on regarding Egypt (“No surprise that Morsi acting like a pharaoh,” Nov. 28 Opinion).
About the city of Buhler’s logo: Somewhere along the line we’ve lost “majority rule.”
