I love Halloween. Having all of the little princesses and monsters coming to the door is great. However, if you are more than 5 feet tall, I’m not sure if you’re looking for candy or casing the joint.

If companies cannot greet customers with “Merry Christmas,” then I will not buy anything from them.

Our media claim that many are seeking solutions to the late-night violence in Old Town. Really? Isn’t much of it occurring when the customers leave the clubs? Eliminate the clubs. The remaining crime is the result of a lack of security people.

Democrats cheered President Obama’s ACA promise of insurance for the uninsured, thinking someone else would pay for it. Surprise – millions of them will pay the bill, and they’re not happy about it.

Is sticker shock treatment covered under Obamacare?

Kathleen Sebelius: You go, girl. 2016 is not that far away.

Sebelius says she takes “full responsibility” for the health care sign-up debacle. That means nothing. If you take full responsibility for a screwup like that, then resign or get fired. That is how you truly take responsibility for your actions – suffer the consequences. No suffering here.

Where can I get a banner or bumper sticker that shows I support Kathleen Sebelius? It’s not the only political victory that starts out rough in reality. Is gloating a sin?

All of the lying and spying by President Obama and his administration make me wish we had George W. Bush back in the White House.

What these privacy “activists” seem to be overlooking is that anything that is illegally obtained (sans warrant) is not admissible in court. If you’re not doing anything illegal, don’t worry about it.

A man stops a thief from stealing his horse by shooting the horse. Effective? Yes, but it misses the point. NSA stops terrorists from attacking America by destroying our right to privacy. Effective? Maybe, but it certainly misses the point.

“Davis polling well with moderate Kansans”? Heck, I am a conservative Republican and I support Paul Davis over Sam Brownback.

Put some ice in a glass. Pile it up above the rim. Now fill with water. Let the ice melt. How much does the water rise? That mess on your table is the Earth’s port cities underwater.

Concerning offensive mascots: Isn’t the Kapaun Mount Carmel Crusader a slap in the face with a shoe to our Muslim friends?
