Moves by President Obama saved the auto industry. From the time he was first inaugurated, the stock market has been steadily gaining ground and has hit new levels recently. And yet some have the nerve to say he has been bad for the country. Do these people live under a rock?

Obama, our dear leader, saving socialism from the ravages of free enterprise.

For every job created under the Obama administration, 75 people have gone on food stamps. Our community organizer president couldn’t manage a lemonade stand, let alone the U.S. economy.

If you knew our great nation was being destroyed by Obama the first day he took office, I suspect you were judging the book by its cover and not its content.

The secretary of state gave millions of dollars to countries that are demonstrating against the USA. It seems we have money for others but none for the people who pay the taxes. Let’s quit sending money to others and take care of the USA.

Why are we giving money to countries when our own homeland is getting deeper and deeper in debt? We are to take care of our homeland first, then others when we have the money.

Why is everyone so excited about one 87-year-old woman in California who was refused CPR? We allow millions of abortions every year. Which is worse in your mind?

No, you can’t get a suntan, but you can have an abortion. It would appear the hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.

If it weren’t for the strong Kansas wind, some people in the neighborhood wouldn’t get the trash out of their yard cleaned up. I guess there must be something physically wrong with them, because they don’t expend any energy to do anything.

Gov. Sam Brownback advocates holding back third-graders who have difficulties on the state reading assessment. While he doesn’t respect educators’ feedback, it is apparent that Brownback needs to be held back in third-grade math for his $2 billion mistake on the state budget.

Kids suspended from school or arrested for gun-shaped pastries or pointing their fingers. Strip searches at airports. Metal detectors at entrances to Social Security offices and courthouses. Forget the “land of the free and home of the brave.” The terrorists have won.

Why wasn’t the KU game televised on senior night? A lot of us can’t afford all the ESPN channels. We missed a great farewell to some deserving young men.
