The real reason corporations outsource jobs to foreign countries is to guarantee there will always be some level of unemployment in the USA. Too many workers competing for too few jobs holds down wages. Full employment causes wages to rise.


We will look back at the liberal, progressive movement and ask, “Why were we fooled?” Even the “disenfranchised” will exclaim, “I never considered where this would lead us.” Meanwhile, the political elite will continue until they are extinguished by their own self-consuming fire, and we will be left, as a people, to start over.


My dictionary defines the word “principled” as being honorable, righteous, upright, ethical, just and moral. It does not mention political leaning as a definition.


School funding cut, health care hard to get, if your parent fails a drug test twice your family can’t get help, and it goes downhill from there. Why don’t we ask those fetuses everyone in Topeka is so worried about whether they even want to be born in such an unwelcoming place as Kansas?


Michelle Obama is expected to take yet another vacation when the country is in poor financial condition. Maybe she really is a modern Marie Antoinette, aka “Madame Deficit.”

They say 16 billion jelly beans are consumed at Easter by Americans. Unacceptable. Something needs to be done about that. Right, Mayor Bloomberg?


I’ve decided I’m OK with the coast states denying their residents their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. When the famine and pestilence come and they start migrating toward the red states looking for something to eat, well, we’re armed to the teeth.


Sen. Rand Paul from Kentucky is circulating a petition nationwide, soliciting signatures to support overturning Roe v. Wade. But he strongly opposes banning assault weapons. Makes us wonder about the sincerity of his actions. Assault weapons lead to mass killings such as in Arizona, Wisconsin, Colorado and Connecticut.


Oh, I get it. You think lawmakers want to hear your opinion. Think again and go smoke a joint.
