While some people think the Obamacare program is shovel-ready, most think it should be simply cremated.


Republican “terrorists, hostage takers and bomb throwers” proposed funding the entire government and delaying the ACA individual mandate. Democrats refused and shut down the government. Now, Democrats up for re-election in 2014 are making the same proposal.


So the president lied when he said you can keep your insurance plan and your doctor if you like them. What else is new?


I’m still waiting for the president and his family to enroll in Obamacare.


Those asking for Kathleen Sebelius’ resignation should resign, as they are the ones who shut down the government. Work to fix the problem, not create one. There are a lot of politicians who need a pink slip, and I hope they get it in the next election. We need politicians who can negotiate a solution.


To those who are fixated on hating Obama and anything slightly progressive: Get out and take in the beautiful colors of fall in your neighborhood. It might do your shriveled soul good.


The government shutdown didn’t cost the taxpayers $24 billion. It saved us billions. Liberals make up these figures for you Kool-Aid drinkers.


The Republicans claimed they got nothing from the standoff and the government shutdown. But really they did: eight years of Hillary Clinton.


What makes Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz, who was born in Canada, any more of a legitimate American than Barack Hussein Obama, who was born in Hawaii? At least our president no longer tries to disguise his real name in favor of a more acceptable Americanized version. Right, “Ted”?


It is so embarrassing to see Rep. Tim Huelskamp being interviewed on TV. Kansas deserves better representation than this. Now I need ear plugs for interviews and the Chiefs games.


Put some ice in a glass. Fill with water. Let the ice melt. How much does the water rise? How much will icebergs cause the oceans to rise?


French maids, “sexy” nurses, “sexy” this and that – is it just me, or has Halloween become a live soft-porn fest? If my daughter wore some of the outfits that are sold these days, I’d think she’d taken up prostitution. How sad.


No, we do not need a “return to God.” America has never been a Christian nation. You need to stop pushing your religion on everybody else. Freedom of religion also means freedom from religion.


Other businesses operate downtown, and the constant motor revving at a motorcycle garage on Broadway is a huge annoyance. Can you please take the bike elsewhere to rev the engine? It would be fine if it was once in a while, but it’s constantly happening day in and day out for long periods of time.
