Cut the pope some slack. Unlike John McCain, the pope knows when it’s time to retire.

It’s a shame that there are more people in the U.S. on food stamps than the entire population of Spain.

There was so much gas and hot air generated during the State of the Union address. No wonder most of those who attended had to stand up so many times during that address.

Raise your hands if you are tired of President Obama promising the moon and then sitting on his hands and doing nothing. Same song, second verse, lies, lies, lies.

I was alarmed to hear of the proposal for the federal government to provide preschool “education.” All socialist and communist countries have done the same, beginning the indoctrination of society at the earliest possible age. I fear it is a dangerous move.

An increase in the minimum wage sounds good until you have to pay more for what you buy and more in taxes.

The idle, uninformed or ill-informed will fawn over the populist, who tickles their sweet, sensitive ears with promises that he can make their lives better. Only your own dedication, determination and commitment to hard work can make you free. Take care of your own business. Leave others alone.

Do you know the definition of mass confusion? It is Obamacare.

The Senate easily passed the Violence Against Women Act, 78-22. Twenty-two men voted against it, including our own Sen. Pat Roberts. It is now officially time for Roberts to retire.

Did Gov. Sam Brownback flunk his high school government class? What doesn’t he understand about the concepts of the three branches of government, and checks and balances?

If you want WSU to play KU in basketball, then bring football back to WSU, build a new stadium and build the program to prominence. Then WSU can join the Big 12 and play KU and KSU twice a year.

Santa is hanging from a roof at Tyler and 17th Street. Would somebody please release him so he can go back to the North Pole?

Soup and crackers can be very filling.
