President Obama hasn’t answered the obvious questions about why he intentionally misled us on guns to Mexico, Benghazi, IRS targeting conservative groups and health care. He says he didn’t knowingly lie about keeping your health plan. In court, the rule is, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.”

I have to chuckle whenever I read or hear about someone expressing concerns over the lack of security in the Obamacare website. Socialism does not recognize personal privacy in any facet.

Obama and the Democratic leadership sold us a bucket of horse manure, claiming it was honey, and now they wonder why we don’t like the taste.

“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” And as Gomer Pyle would have said, “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.”

It took several decades for this country to pass health care reform, and now we’re upset because the website is a little slow.

Sam Brownback and the other governors turning away Medicaid expansion are, in effect, a death panel. They’ve decided no one deserves health care.

Republicans say paying for medical insurance is a individual responsibility. They do not support Obamacare, so why am I forced to pay taxes to provide medical insurance for government employees?

Aiding and abetting the enemy is considered treason by any standard that I’m aware of, here and abroad. Would someone please explain how Barack Obama has not aided and abetted our enemies?

Every good con artist knows that if you repeat a lie enough times, people will believe it’s true. For example, we’ve been told over and over that tax cuts will stimulate an economy, but it’s a lie.

How tacky of The Eagle to make the Chiefs the biggest story on the front page over those who suffered in the tornadoes.

The way everyone thinks these days, I’m surprised they don’t think the term “Black Friday” is racist.

Reflecting on the breathtaking autumn colors, let’s give credit where it is due. Mother Nature learned it all from Maxfield Parrish.

To the person who complained about women’s volleyball attire: I would rather watch them than the basketball players running around in their great-grandmothers’ bloomers.

If you use Redbox and own a smartphone, please do the others waiting in line the courtesy of looking up the movie and promo code before you reach the kiosk.

Have you ever noticed that whenever you ask anyone question, the first thing they say is “um”?

I don’t know why Miley Cyrus continues to pull her attention-getting antics. She has a great voice. She should focus on that instead of the other garbage.
