It’s very telling when the Obama/Democrat propaganda media’s first news report of the day is on the death of James Gandolfini instead of the fact that some lawmakers are trying to legalize millions of border-crossing criminals or about the use of unmanned aerial vehicles against U.S. citizens.

President Obama spoke this week before a crowd of 4,500 people in Berlin. Five years ago, the crowd was more than 200,000 people. His poll numbers haven’t even dropped that badly here at home.

When candidate Obama was promising to “share the wealth,” I sure didn’t think he was going to share mine.

The mentally unbalanced in the United States are permitted to roam free until they commit murder, sometimes mass murder. It makes more sense to confine sick individuals than to pass more gun bans restricting the freedoms of law-abiding citizens.

I’ll agree with the concealed-carry law, which now permits guns in public buildings, when Kansas legislators agree they can be carried into the Statehouse while they are in session.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., is but another member in a long list of Republicans who should have to answer the question: “Have you no decency, sir?”

“Failed to condemn” (June 20 Letters to the Editor) was spot-on about U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo. He is a good American who is trying to keep America safe, and the Muslim leaders do not speak out against terror with conviction. I understand this newspaper is biased against conservative ideas.

State legislators and statewide elected officials should be asked to uphold the state and federal constitutions when they take office. Someone other than Kris Kobach should be assigned to explain the constitutions to them.

I shouldn’t have to pay thousands of dollars for an education to collaborate with a stinking computer.

I don’t understand why some sports bars put ads in the paper for two-for-one deals, and then when you show up to eat they are out of what is on their menu.

Is there enough parking downtown for all the tourists who will be flocking to see our beautiful fountains? There goes the “quality” of my life.

After going to the train show at Century II and not being allowed to bring in my coffee, and now with the parking experiment, I could not care less what the city finally decides. Never again will I darken the doorway at that place.

Lighting a candle for someone does nothing more than make candle makers richer.
