Just like the rest of the British royals, the new heir to the throne is white and Caucasian. So, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Chris Matthews, liberal media – here is your next demonstration. “It is just not fair.”

If President Obama is absolutely correct that profiling is wrong, then why is his administration profiling all of us with drones and the NSA, CIA, IRS, DOJ and probably other agencies we aren’t aware of?

If Obamacare is going to be the disaster that Republicans claim, why don’t they sit back and let it fail, then reap the benefits from angry voters? Republicans are fighting Obamacare because they are scared to death it will work.

Robocalls are an intrusion on our privacy. If we remain silent, we accept this form of abuse. If all Americans called their congressmen each time they received a robocall, Congress might do something about the problem.

Our current governor is encouraging businessmen to come to Kansas. Wait – and I do mean wait – until they try to get a driver’s license.

I can’t wait until we can light the water in Century II on fire. That’ll sure be something fun to show visitors.

It’s amazing how people on Social Security disability can drive fence posts, use a push mower, pull weeds all day, wash cars, trim trees. I think they could make more money as actors. Oh, I forgot – they have good days and bad days.

I wish these two-stair steppers would get out my way. I take three or four stairs at a time, depending on what day it is.

Thanks to the gentleman who paid for lunch Tuesday at Auntie Mae’s for three elementary teachers. Rest assured we will pass it on.

The problem with KU football is that the ball isn’t round.
