Warning: Anyone who tries to enroll their children in school and get a driver’s license on the same day may succumb to a serious nervous condition.

During the 2012 election campaign, the Democrats blathered on about the Republican war on women. With Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, it seems like the Democrats have their own land mines exploding.

“Carlos Danger”? Was “Oscar Mayor Weiner” too obvious?

Does Huma Abedin being a doormat for her politically ambitious husband mean she’ll be New York’s next U.S. senator and a future presidential candidate?

Just to say we elected the first female president is not a good reason to elect Hillary Clinton to office.

It would have been hard enough losing a son to the Benghazi scandal. For President Obama to call it a phony scandal shows me just how little he cares for the American people.

Any true Republican with any self-respect and dignity would refuse Social Security retirement money, because it was a Democrat president who started the plan.

Union wages make this community a better place. Everyone should join a union and make a living wage and get respect. Don’t blame union wages because the company management makes bad decisions.

I had to watch the Charles Koch Foundation ad twice but finally got the message: Poor people in the U.S. should rejoice and dance in the streets. They’re rich compared with poor people in other countries. Pie charts don’t lie.

I’m all for “economic freedom” so long as that’s not just a euphemism for the poaching of the individual equal rights of the weak by the strong.

Charles Koch should relocate himself and his business interests if he truly thinks there are other countries that offer greater economic freedom than the United States.

So all the Kochs want is control? Considering their financial position versus the financial position of the United States, maybe some of their “control” would benefit the whole country.

To the person mad at the farmer for not pulling over: Farmers pay taxes like everyone else. By the way – did you eat today? If you did, you should thank that farmer. Maybe you should take a different route next time.
