The real traitor during the Vietnam War was the government, not Jane Fonda.


The president is right: al-Qaida is on the run. Now it is running toward us.


Obamacare is socialism personified. You want Obamacare? Welcome to Russia, comrade.


I don’t need talk radio, or anyone, to tell me what to think. I can see for myself what a dangerous enemy to America Obama is. If you watch CNN, MSNBC et al. and believe they’re not biased, you’re the one with mush for brains.


There has been much talk about the large number of people who disappear in the vast Alaskan wilderness. A search party should be organized for Sarah Palin.


The fact that Wichita’s urban center is almost nonexistent should not mandate that my tax dollars pay for the reconstruction.


Kudos to the Wichita City Council for rejecting conservative blogger Bob Weeks’ nomination to the airport advisory board. If hate and ignorance could fly, Weeks’ blog site is already an airport.


It is likely that very few viewers of the Koch ad understand the message being conveyed and, furthermore, very few care about the message.


The rest of the U.S. isn’t laughing at Kansas. Only liberals are laughing, and they don’t matter anyway. The rest of America is crying over what liberals have done to this once-great country.


Television stations hire more females in front of the camera because if they hire men they’ll be called sexist and if they hire white men they’ll be called racist sexists.


I really think our middle-age news ladies are too old to be wearing skirts above the knee. It doesn’t look good at all, especially if they sit down in front of the camera. They need to dress their age.


Why is it that so many of the people who complain about women having too many babies are often the same people who want Planned Parenthood to cease operating?


I am so glad to see the TV commercials that ask for drivers to watch out for motorcyclists, because you never know what illegal, dangerous or just plain stupid stunt they are going to pull. That goes for bicyclists, too.


Folks who are so tightly wound they can’t see humor in the Cox commercials should take a yoga class.


From a mother of two who washed diapers by hand and boiled them in a big pot on top of the stove in the hot summer with no air conditioning: Stop crying. I don’t feel sorry for you.


If Elvis is still around, it is the best proof we have that cholesterol is not as dangerous as doctors think.


Yes, “Pearls Before Swine” readers and others: It is just a myth that lemmings follow each other jumping off cliffs. Now please stop using that expression.
