President Obama’s economy is so wonderful. Now a 5 percent increase in auto sales causes headlines to read “soaring sales.” Why wouldn’t you spend your money on a car with these interest rates?

Obama needs to challenge the North Korean leader to a good old-fashioned fistfight – winner takes all to settle North Korea’s problem. I am sure Obama could clean his clock.

Anyone who doesn’t believe in the dumbing down of America’s citizens just has to notice that Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden are posturing to run for president. Instead of our best and brightest running for office, we get dumb and dumber.

The conservative media are behind much of the “dumbing down” of America. They tell their followers what they want to believe and little more.

The worst places in America for minorities to live are run lock, stock and barrel by the Democratic Party, and yet the residents of those areas overwhelmingly blame Republicans for their plight.

The NRA’s stand on having armed guards in every school sort of shoots in the foot the school board’s stand on zero tolerance toward weapons.

Don’t cite the Bible in reference to history or science. It contains neither. Oh, yeah – and when you see your neighbor working in his yard on Sunday, don’t forget to kill him.

If electing Kris Kobach as governor would mean he’d spend as little effort and time at that job as he does doing his current job of secretary of state, I’d consider voting for him. At least as an absentee governor, he wouldn’t do as much damage as our presiding governor.

I think I should be the next governor; I don’t like to spend money even if it’s not my own.

A fair number of us tried hard to tell you what a tea party Brownback administration would potentially bring. But, oh, no, you knew better. And just look where we’re at now. And it’s not over yet. Don’t make the same mistake twice.

Now, I understand why KU fans don’t want KU to play Wichita State. They have everything to lose. Wichita State is in the Final Four.

I am disappointed the Jayhawks didn’t make it to the Final Four, but I want to congratulate WSU. It would do the WSU faithful well to waste less energy on negative comments regarding KU and KSU, and save it for this weekend. That’s what the KU fans are doing.

Do you think WuShock could get his own talk show out of this?
