Maybe it’s just me, but I would much rather give the Egyptian military weapons and money now, since President Mohammed Morsi has been removed.

I know I’m stating the obvious, but based on accomplishments, the Democratic Party might possibly be the greatest force for good in the history of mankind.

The Republican Party can kiss the White House goodbye. Now that the Obama administration is giving away all we worked so hard for and the Obama media keep doing what they are doing, I don’t see the GOP ever in the White House again.

I’m not a racist. I don’t like Joe Biden either.

Shame on the Wichita school board for giving superintendent John Allison a 6.9 percent raise while agreeing to only a “2.4 percent increase in total value for teachers” under a new contract. No matter how you spin it, this is not comparable.

Close all libraries and stop building monuments to people. We can’t afford either. Just Google it.

I was a kid in the 1950s, before air conditioning and cellphones. Moms would leave their kids in a car with the windows down in hot weather and shop for a few minutes. Nobody objected. Hot and sweaty was the norm. So was minding your own business.

I thought the coverage of the Anson Bernhardt murder trial was unnecessarily gruesome. Amber Kostner’s family and friends do not need that level of detail to be published.

The “man” who admitted to kicking his girlfriend to death should have to spend the rest of his life rooming with the Carr brothers. That is one of the most horrific crimes I have ever heard of.

It’s understandable that churches’ attendance is shrinking. Their message of peace and love is dwindling, with too many churches supporting war, guns, intolerance, the death penalty and child predator priests. Many churches don’t support birth control, sex education, affordable health care and helping people in the U.S.

At church or wherever, with Cheerios and fruit drinks “all gone,” loud toys broken and a child still a noisy and annoying distraction, the fault is no longer that of the child but of the ignoring parents.

Blame button manufacturers for the popularity of T-shirts. Buttons haven’t improved over the past 100 years. Buttons break, fall off and slip through the holes. Give me a T-shirt any day.
