Most of us have heard about the goose that lays golden eggs. The way I have it figured, the Republicans want to gather the eggs for the wealthy while the Democrats want to give the goose away. There has to be a middle ground.

Sorry, Democrats, but the stock market’s recent performance is not an indicator that the economy has returned. It’s a sign that interest rates are at worse-than-starvation rates. There’s no place else to put money. Just wait.

Think there’s no racism anymore? Then why has membership in the Ku Klux Klan gone up since President Obama’s first election?

As long as the Republican Party’s mouthpiece is Rush Limbaugh, it will remain a party of stuffy old men.

The problem is that Democrats don’t believe in smart regulation or even adequate regulation. It’s always more regulation, and more, and so on. Bad people break laws, no matter what we do.

We need to wake up and realize that budget cuts affect jobs, parks, cities, universities, roads and more. Government spending is not the bogeyman. It’s essential investment in what makes Kansas a great place to live.

I wonder how you gun haters will feel when you are sitting in a restaurant, some kook comes in shooting at you, and someone with concealed-carry saves your life. Will you hate guns then?

Does anyone else think that Wichita looks a little rough around the edges since Robert Layton became city manager?

No one can afford a good time out at the Intrust Bank Arena because of the concessions prices. They are way out of line.

Parents: If you wish to get good insight on what your teenager deals with at school, walk down the hall during passing period. I was shocked at the level of disrespect, rudeness, vulgarity and violence displayed by students. I feel sickened that my child has to attend public school.

Many people seem to believe God only loves America. Can this be true?

Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. – two of the best special effects props in the movies.

Do you know what the difference is between people with tattoos and the people without? People with tattoos don’t care if you don’t have tattoos.
