This administration is starting to look very much like that of Richard Nixon. The politically motivated actions by the IRS are very serious. It’s hard to believe they were not directed from the White House.


Am I listening to Washington leaders or Sgt. Schultz with all the “I know nothing”?


Yes, folks. This is the same IRS that President Obama wants to police the new health care program.


I enjoy going to work every day. I cannot imagine enjoying being the president’s press secretary. For any president. This has been a brutal week for Jay Carney.


How many Benghazi hearings does it take to screw in a lightbulb? None, because the Republicans just don’t get it.


I’m so proud of our president and all the things he has been able to accomplish in spite of the ugliness and negativity of the GOP.


Bush had just as many scandals and killed the economy besides. Advantage Obama.


All these stories about students graduating with massive debt are sad. However, those are choices they made. Where are the stories and studies about the kids and families who struggle and sacrifice to get through school without debt?


WSU president John Bardo obviously has never had to find a parking space on campus. How does he expect to grow the university without adequate parking? Has he passed this new dorm proposal by the basketball supporters? Where are they supposed to park?


I believe a better location for WSU’s new dorm would be the golf course on the east end of the campus. Golf students could practice on nearby city courses. The parking lot at the proposed location is necessary for events in Cessna Stadium.


What business is it of the federal government whether or not the states collect sales tax on Internet purchases?


Why is it that every time a quarterback gets a raise, my cable bill goes up?


Thank you to the off-duty paramedic who assisted my husband when he fell down a few stairs after watching “Iron Man 3” Saturday evening. You are a true superhero.


You can legally ride a motorcycle with nothing on but a pair of sunglasses, but get a ticket for not wearing a seat belt in a totally enclosed car with four wheels? Yeah, that sounds logical.
