Foster homes should not get one dime of money from the state. People who do foster care should do it for the love of the children, not as a moneymaking business.

Four years of not supporting his children should give the court the idea that a deadbeat dad isn’t going to work. Come on, courts – put the kids first, rather than believe the word of a deadbeat. Children need support to try to stay even with others.

First, WSU exacerbates the parking problems by building a new dorm on top of prime parking. Now we find out that dorm rates could go up anywhere from 23 to 28 percent, on top of the spiraling tuition rates. This is becoming quite the recipe for attracting new students.

I did my DMV renewal in less than 10 minutes. When I asked where all the lines were, the helpful clerk said that most people come on a Friday when they get a paycheck, causing a bottleneck. I expected the worst but had great service.

I read Kathleen Parker’s column about the people being duped and the president being a liar (Nov. 8 Opinion). Well, cannot the same be said about our governor? He said the tax cuts would make the state money. Let’s hold everyone accountable, not just the Democrats.

Obama has lost his credibility over the health care plan. How could anybody believe anything Obama says from now on?

The president and our former governor have apologized for the Affordable Care Act. When will the rest of the Democrats apologize? I am sure the Americans losing their affordable health care feel much better.

Sen. Pat Roberts can’t even get a farm bill passed, and he wants Kathleen Sebelius to resign. Roberts should first worry about doing his job.

Century II could be built on the property for those apartments, where the West Bank Stage was located. Of course, parking would have to be at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.

I am surprised copper thefts are happening again. I thought that with the stiff sentence the last copper thief was sentenced to (probation), the thieves would not dare to do this again.

If the NFL doesn’t want Collin Klein, let’s keep him here, as Bill Snyder’s eventual replacement. Then who knows? KSU athletic director, president of the university, governor and maybe the White House. Better than getting his head bashed in by guys like Richie Incognito.
