Hey, you liberals who want gun control to reduce gun violence: Why don’t you get your liberal buddy judges to sentence any criminal with a record who is caught with an illegal gun to life in prison in Gitmo? Until you do that, you’re not serious about gun control.

Chicago’s extremely high murder rate is not a testament to the NRA’s influence. It is a result of criminals ignoring the anti-gun laws and killing people indiscriminately with impunity. Arm the honest people and the murder rate will drop, as it has everywhere else that has adopted concealed-carry laws.

Firearms serve as the great equalizer, enabling good people to defend themselves and their loved ones from criminals who consider gun limits a joke. Rather than going after good people, we should develop a database of those who are psychologically unstable.

I suspect that most of the macho Wichita men who think they have to carry guns everywhere would, at the first hint of any real trouble, wet their pants.

What is Marxism? Describe communism. What is democracy? What is a republic? If you can answer these four questions correctly, you’re doing better than members of both the Senate and House, all of whom swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

Kansans should understand sequester, since that is what has occurred with Gov. Sam Brownback’s election.

The definition of contradiction: someone who trash-talks Brownback and then continues to live in the state of Kansas.

The failure of our educational system goes beyond what it fails to teach. The failure includes what it does teach, or rather indoctrinates, and the graduates it sends out into the world, who are incapable of seriously weighing alternatives for themselves or for American society.

I guarantee that if millions of dollars were cut from the athletic departments of KU, WSU and K-State, everybody would be up in arms and calling for the recall of the state officeholders who caused this abomination. You voted these people in, and now you get what you deserve.

I would make a homosexual basketball player take a shower by himself. I would punch him out if I caught him looking at my stuff.

Spraying people with colored cornstarch during a charity run? What does that do to the lungs? This can’t be good for you.

I’d eat at Texas Roadhouse more if the volume weren’t so high on the country-and-Western noise.
