Attorney General Eric Holder said that the federal government will not challenge any of the states that have legalized marijuana. Our country is literally going to pot.

No one is denying voting rights to citizens. The 15,000 Kansans are denying themselves the right to vote if they don’t take the responsibility of obtaining identification like the rest of us have.

If having to prove you are an American citizen to be allowed to vote caused you to become a Democrat, you were never a Republican to begin with. Good riddance, and please don’t change your mind again.

The biggest piece of misinformation that talk radio spreads is that talk radio doesn’t spread misinformation.

Obama so loved the poor, he created millions more.

History is rife with examples of societies replacing systems that work, such as capitalism, with systems that sound good, such as Obamacare.

Young people are enrolling in college because they have no choice. They are taking a calculated risk to avoid being a robot for low wages.

If you’re one of the crackpots who refuses to immunize your kids, please home-school them.

Government spending cannot stimulate our economy for long, because every dime spent is taxed or borrowed from the private sector. Witness our limping recovery. Higher taxes have restrained consumers.

Here’s why I shaved my head: My hair was thinning out and turning white. By shaving my head, I shaved a few years off my appearance. I save money on hair products and barbers. And the ladies seem to like it.

I am going to die before long. I have zero plans to pay my taxes on time, mow my yard, clean my lot or take a bath. Local government can kiss my soon-to-be-dead behind.
